Is your skin ready for summer? Getting your skin ready means detox-time and making sure that the skin is fortified, nourished, and very well-hydrated. Your skin is about to go through a seasonal transition which means making adjustments to your natural skin care products and routine. Read on to learn about summer skin care essentials for gorgeous healthy skin all summer long.
1. Tame body acne
We sweat a lot during the summer especially when we're active. Whether you're working out, gardening, or doing some sort of an outdoor activity it's vital that you shower immediately afterwards using an exfoliating body cleanser like Pure Fiji's Coconut Milk Shower Gel. This dreamy coconut milk shower gel is packed with moisturizing agents to hydrate the skin without stripping it of its natural oils, while pineapple extracts gently buff away dead skin cells and impurities leaving skin super-soft as the power of sweet-smelling coconut transports you to paradise. Yummy!
2. Get rid of dry skin
What's the fastest way to smooth skin? Exfoliate! It may seem counterintuitive to exfoliate, but incorporating a gentle exfoliator like Pure Fiji's Coconut Crush Scrub into your everyday routine will help remove dead skin cells and free up your skin to more effectively absorb moisturizing products.

3. Self- tanning
Now that the weather is heating up and summer is fast approaching, it's time to consider fake tans. You don't have to bake in the sun for hours if you're going after that sun-kissed glow. There are natural fake tans that are toxin free, chemical free and won't irritate your skin.
4. Body oil
An absolute summer essential is Pure Fiji's Exotic Bath and Body Oil. An award-winning spa product this multi-tasking all-natural organic oil gives you deeply hydrated, glow-y, and subtly luminous skin. It is truly the ultimate all-natural beauty multi-tasker. Use as a massage oil, daily moisturizing treatment, hot oil hair treatment, makeup remover, and more! Who doesn't love having one beauty product in your arsenal that can do so many things?
For self massage pour a small amount on the palm of your hands and rub it together. Start from the top of the head and scalp; massage the oil moving downwards your ears, neck and shoulders. Massage the arms with long strokes, then work in a circular motion for the chest, abdomen, and hips. Treat your legs to long strokes and finish off with extra attention on the hands and feet.
5. Detox water
Detox water is the perfect way to get all the necessary nutrients required for clear, glowing skin. Water alone is an important key to great skin as it flushes out toxins, delivers nutrients to your cells and keeps your cells hydrated. And hydrated skin = glowing skin. Take it with you wherever you go so you stay hydrated all day long. Why not try this simple 2-ingredient detox water for acneic skin?

Blueberries are one of the highest sources of anti-oxidants, which work wonders for acne-prone skin. Plus, mandarin oranges are packed with vitamin C; another powerful anti-oxidant that will help clear up your complexion.
Getting your dose of natural vitamin D from the sun is important for your skin. However, UV rays can cause a lot of skin damage if you are unprotected. Drying and premature wrinkling are just two of many negative consequences from too much sun; there's also dehydration, which can lead to moisture issues and blemishes, and skin cancer, which can be deadly. Take a break from direct sun every couple of hours and find some shade for 15-30 minutes. Doing so can really save you and your skin from a lot of the damage caused by the sun. Find a shady spot under a leafy tree, or patio umbrella and enjoy a lovely spray mist of Pure Fiji Hydrating Body Mist and you're all set!
