Apres-Sun Skin Routine With PURA Botanicals
There is something special about the long, summer evenings when the heat of the day has worn off and the glowy golden hour descends. It’s a time when we can collectively shake off the intensity of the noonday sun, refresh our spirits, and anticipate a nightly rebirth. Even if we have been diligently sun safe (Hello, SPF!), our skin often craves extra moisture and attention after a day spent outdoors. Keep reading to learn about the ultimate PURA summertime night ritual designed to revive and rehydrate post-sun skin to keep you glowing ALL the next day long!
Botanical Bloom Essence/Rosemary Clarifying Essence - Immediately cool and hydrate your skin throughout the day with PURA’s toning essences. For your evening skincare routine, spritz on freshly cleansed skin, taking time to exhale the remnants of the day. PURA’s Botanical Bloom Essence is a rejuvenating floral mist that helps maintain the skin’s natural firmness with Vitamins C, E and Beta-carotene, while infusing the skin with long-lasting moisture and nutrients. If you are craving a more herbal scent profile, PURA’s Rosemary Essence is an ultra-calming formulation, with organic rosemary leaf oil that hydrates and firms the skin, while cleansing and tightening the pores. For extra refreshment, store these essences in the fridge for an invigorating spritz.
Radiant Face Drops - PURA’s most nutritive face oil is liquid sunshine repair in a bottle. Apply 2-3 drops to your fingertips and gently press and massage into your face and neck (don’t forget to pamper your delicate earlobes and décolleté). This antioxidant face oil provides a nightly boost of skin-softening and brightening nourishment. Bulgarian rose, French lavender, and Egyptian geranium oils help calm and soothe your skin and spirit for a beautiful, radiant appearance. Rosehip seed oil, naturally high in Vitamin C, helps to reduce the look of age spots and fine lines, resulting in your skin looking refreshed and revitalized. When make-up artist Anna Nenoiu was recently experiencing some facial irritation, she turned to PURA’s Radiant Face Drops which, “relieved my inflammation and completely restored my natural glow.” The oil is also extremely versatile and can be used to moisturize cuticles and refresh your skin and make-up throughout the day.
Turmeric Night Cocoon - This comforting and rich face cream is a delicate infusion of luxurious pomegranate seed, calming turmeric and uplifting rose geranium oils that help promote healthy skin renewal, while protecting against environmental stressors that cause dry, dull skin. Golden turmeric oil contains conditioning and toning properties that contribute to a natural, radiant-looking glow and deeply soothe post-sun skin. Turmeric is steeped in history and has been used for centuries to lower inflammation both internally and externally. It also helps to defend against premature aging with its high antioxidant content, while antibacterial properties help to defend against acne causing bacteria. Furthermore, turmeric’s warm, spicy aroma helps to relax and balance body and mind which offers a welcome respite at the end of the day. Even though this cream contains turmeric, don’t expect it to be bright yellow since turmeric oil is less saturated in color than its powder form and is blended into this cream in skin safe levels. All of the benefits of anti-inflammatory, skin soothing turmeric without any worry of yellow stains.
Overnight Watermelon Mask - PURA’s bestselling Overnight Watermelon Mask is the ultimate post-sun treat for summer skin. Smooth onto clean skin as the last step in your evening ritual at least three times a week (ensure you treat the mask to your neck, and décolleté). This mask can also be used as a moisture barrier against the elements during travel, while participating in outdoor activities, and as a non-greasy primer under your makeup application. Luxuriously crafted with skin-rejuvenating squalane oil and pure watermelon extract, which is rich in skin-brightening Vitamins A and C and amino acids, this soft pink concoction creates a moisture barrier which protects your skin and gives space for previously applied nutrient dense products (such as PURA’s Radiant Face Drops and Turmeric Night Cocoon) to fully sink in and work their restorative magic. Use this decadent Overnight Mask to gently remove dead skin cells which improves your skin’s texture and enhances a youthful looking complexion. Aloe vera, Roman chamomile and witch hazel all soothe, calm and nourish your skin, leaving it feeling supple and hydrated. Lycopene, a phytonutrient, is found in watermelon extract and is an antioxidant that protects from environmental stressors and helps reduce the look and signs of aging.
Petal Fudge - Treat your post-sun skin with PURA’s indulgent hand and body cream formulated without a drop of synthetic fragrance or chemicals. Crafted with luxurious rosehip seed oil, which helps to deeply hydrate and rejuvenate your skin, Petal Fudge is immediately absorbed to leave your skin deeply moisturized and softly scented with notes of rose and vanilla. In addition, petitgrain, a citrus essential oil from Italy, assists in maintaining your skin's resilience and elasticity. Aphrodisiac vanilla works as a powerful antioxidant oil to soothe dry, parched skin, while Roman chamomile, French lavender and ylang ylang leave it well-balanced, supple and supremely smooth. This cream will leave you carving out time to massage it onto areas of the body that crave extra moisture and nourishment, such as your hands, feet, shins, elbows and décolletage any time of year.
