Get your skin summer ready with these warm weather essentials!
Here at VIVA GLAM, we receive a ton of products that are just okay. But on occasion, we find a really amazing line that we are more than happy to put our name behind!
On a recent search for natural aromatic products for summer, we came across a passionate family business that makes their products in Bali, Utama Spice. They consider their creations to be “food for skin” rather than mere skincare.
And after trying a few of these 100% organic and cruelty-free creations, we were very pleased with the results. So, we definitely wanted to share them with you! After all, summer beauty should be effortless and easy, right? And these products offer superior performance for one of the hottest and driest seasons of the year.
Clean hands for summer are key because whether you’re indoors or outside, you touch everything. In fact, if you’ve ever seen the film, “Contagion”, you’ll remember when Gwyneth Paltrow’s character, Beth, returns from a business trip to Hong Kong with a virus from a handshake and starts a global pandemic.
We should wash our hands all of the time because often we don’t realize that even touching the bathroom door can have serious results. And because we wash our hands so often, it is important to use a good, organic soap that is not damaging or drying to the skin. After all, did you know that the skin is the largest organ on your body? And what you put on your body can get absorbed through the skin?
One of the best products we’ve found is Utama Spice Tangerine Zesty Citrus 100% Natural Liquid Soap. The tangy citrus scent is uplifting because it also contains pure tangerine oil! Not only did it remove all grease, dirt and oils, it left our hands silky, smooth and soft. And knowing that this soap contains no artificial ingredients also made us feel good about the product. Not only is it good for us, but it is also safe for the environment.
Summer is also a time when you spend a great deal of time outdoors. And when you are out and about, especially by the water, insects and bugs can become an issue. But it is difficult to find a good repellent that doesn’t smell like chemicals!
Using essential oils in insect repellent is the key. Utama Spice Begone Bug is a gentle, yet highly effective, all-natural bug spray. And it’s safe for everyone in the family including small children. It’s 100% natural and doesn’t smell like traditional bug spray, so you won’t smell like you’ve just walked out of a chemical plant.
Going back to the skin being the largest organ on the body, we can’t emphasize enough the importance of using natural products for hydration. Whether your skin is dry or needs to rejuvenate from a nasty sunburn, you will benefit from a moisturizer like Utama Spice Tropical Flower Body Butter. This creamy butter contains pure Ylang Ylang oil and is blended with vanilla and aloe vera to soothe and moisturize the skin. You will be left silky soft and the tropical aroma is perfect for this time of year!
Summer beauty is simple with 100% natural, cruelty-free skincare products! So, swim, hike, bike and enjoy all that the season has to offer and look effortlessly beautiful while you’re doing it!
