Summertime Love for Your Skin
By Courtney McNeill, Wellness Associate
Summer is finally here, well, almost…And it’s been a long winter here in the north country but we have made it! Summer brings with it a few pesky problems, such as sunburns and the overall attack on humanity by what seems every buzzing insect out there. Healthy Living Market and Cafe can help with both of these problems.
We all know sunscreen is a necessity this time of year. Badger broad spectrum SPF 30 is a great choice for a natural and safe sunscreen that can be used by the whole family. Badger uses zinc oxide as the only active ingredient. The zinc oxide used by Badger is a nature identical mineral and it is pharmaceutical grade. Badger uses all natural and certified organic ingredients, and is also a cruelty free company.
Now for those bugs! Rad Soap’s all natural bug spray, Hoe Down, is a great alternative to chemical bug sprays. Hoe Down keeps away mosquitoes, lice, bed bugs, flies, gnats, chiggers, no-see-ums, ants and red ants. This spray uses cocnut fats; its like an amazing smelling liquid lotion! With the ingredients being distilled water, non- GMO food grade oils (grape seed, virgin hemp seed, castor, garlic & herb infused olive oil) , vegetable glycerin, lemongrass and a blend of five essential oils and optiphen this bug spray is safe for adults and children and good for your skin!
