5 Cruelty-Free Skincare Staples For A Sweat-Free Summer
Start writing a post

These organic, cruelty-free skincare products are great for hot, sweaty summers. I use them every day, so you will find my honest opinion about them all. I highly recommend using organic products because they are least likely to be harmful to your body.

This may seem like an extra step when it comes to your beauty routine, but it's really easy. These 5 products could be the start of your next beauty venture.

Rose & Vanilla Natural Deodorant by Schmidt's

Amazon

I can easily start off saying that I've had this for years. This was actually recommended to me and I've been hooked since. I needed to find a good organic deodorant, and luckily I had friendly advice. It smells divine. This is another great thing about organic products, it will ALWAYS smell good — no matter what.

It leaves no color residue and is lightweight furthermore lovely. It doesn't even feel like you have it on when you apply this deodorant.

Daily Sheer Sunscreen by Babo Botanicals SPF 40

Amazon

This sunscreen is spectacular. I would put this on during class and no one would notice because it really is fragrance-free and I felt confident that no one would be bothered. This sunscreen is also sheer and lightweight so my pores don't feel clogged like how other sunnies do.

You can literally feel how delicate the formula is as it is marketed for babies too. It really is soothing and incredibly moisturizing. However, in the winter I found myself needing more moisturizer, so I would just put on more of the product and it worked out just fine.

Sky Organics Organic Bug Spray

Amazon

There's nothing more dangerous than a chemically based bug spray. You can count on this brand being safe to use during the summer. It has a great applicator and you don't have to worry where you put it because it won't break. Their packaging is resilient.

The only thing I have to say about this product is that I'm not sure how great its potency is because I live in a deep forest and find exotic bugs buzzing around me, but never bite me. However, I have used more potent bug sprays that are organic where I don't find a flying bug in sight, but they're out of stock.

If I could recommend a bug spray for hiking or camping it would be the brand Bugs at Bay Insect Spray. Hopefully, they restock soon, fingers crossed.

Handcraft Blueberry Body Scrub

Amazon

I bought this during the pandemic and it was prestigious. I also got the arabica coffee body scrub, but it is currently out of stock. This brand likes to make their products freshly on demand. The quality of this body scrub is more than luxurious. I don't think I'm ever going back to the spa again.

This beauty product is literally the definition of superfood beauty.

ORIGINS Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

Amazon

And to end my series of organic products for the summer, we have a face mask that I have been using since it was released (at least five years). It's OK if you get dirty and sweaty this summer because this charcoal mask by origins literally vacuums out your pores. It's glorious!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

1151

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
