Drop us a note and let us know what you think about the Sake Collection. We love to hear from you!
Here at boscia, we rely on botanical ingredients to create products that impart results. Our largest organ, the skin, relies on the things we place into our bodies as much as what we apply onto our skin. As important as our natural blends are to the composition of our products, we recommend taking vitamins to increase your overall body health. Even with a balanced diet, vitamins benefit everyone! Think of vitamins as the extra boost if you lack a few things in your diet – they help to patch the gaps to provide you with a more balanced level of nutrition. Below, we share our suggestions for superstar supplements everyone benefits from!
Your daily dose of most of the essentials! Multivitamins, best taken with food, restore the body with heightened cellular function. This means everything in the body works better! Multivitamins provide the extra bits and pieces of nutrients needed to keep our body functioning seamlessly.
Vitamin D3, the vitamin D your skin produces when it is exposed to sunlight, is essential for processing calcium in the body. It helps with bone structure and overall stable blood levels for cellular processing. Getting vitamin D can occur when you go outside – just ten minutes of sun exposure (don’t forget your spf) is thought to help prevent vitamin D deficiency.
Fish oil is known to reduce inflammation in the body! Fish oil helps with heart health, and mental health. Think of fish oil as a lubricant for the body to keep things moving smoothly throughout.
Probiotics are “good” germs! They help your digestive track to move smoothly, and can also help alleviate a host of other problems – including skin conditions, like eczema. Probiotics help the body to process effectively and regulate the “good” and “bad” bacteria in the body.
Happy Monday boscia beauties!
Today marks the national Japanese holiday of Marine Day! Sometimes known as Sea Day or Ocean Day, Marine Day is a well-known holiday celebrated throughout Japan. Today, Japanese give thanks to all the ocean provides. Marine Day traditionally takes place the third week of July on Monday. Although a fairly new holiday to Japan, many enjoy taking off work and venturing to the beach to enjoy the ocean’s splendor. Whether engaging in watersports, or fishing, enjoying the beautiful ocean can be celebrated in so many ways!
Here at boscia HQ, we recognize Marine Day as an important day to us. We thank the ocean for its bounty in all that we receive – with the help of the sea, we created some of our most beloved and innovative products. Our All-In-One B.B. Eye Brightener SPF 20, Tsubaki Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask, Tsubaki Cleansing Oil-Gel and Tsubaki Beauty Oil all contain Wakame (Japanese Sea Kelp). Wakame, helps increase collagen production, prevents signs of aging and evens out skin tone by diminishing discoloration! The Cool Blue Hydration Essence contains the main ingredient, Sea Whip, one of the world’s most powerful skin-soothers of the sea. When using our botanically potent products, be sure to thank Mother Nature and the great, blue sea for all it provides.
Though we may not be in Japan, we hope you too can find some time to spend near the ocean this summer and enjoy the wonderful things our oceans have to offer!
1. Skipping SPF
Don’t leave the house without it! Sunscreen, even if you don’t bask in direct sunlight, should be applied daily. For the body, a shot glass sized application is recommended for every 40-80 minutes of exposure. 90% of wrinkles originate from sun exposure – We recommend our Daily Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA+++ ($25) to keep your skin protected and healthy.
SPF math: Minutes to burn without sunscreen X SPF number = maximum sun exposure time
Example: If after 10 minutes of sun exposure, you experience burning, multiply 10 by the SPF. 10 minutes x SPF 15 = 150 minutes, or 2 ½ hours of sun protection. After 150 minutes have passed in direct sunlight, be sure to reapply another layer of sunscreen!
Exfoliation can leave skin feeling amazingly smooth and flawless – but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Over-exfoliating can cause irritation, dryness, and hinder growing skin cells from reaching maturity. Polishing off the top layer of skin a few times a week can result in radiant, healthy skin. Exfoliating 1-3 times a week gives skin the chance to heal, rehydrate and regulate cell production. For a gentle yet effective sloughing of the skin, we recommend our Tsubaki Oil-Infused Exfoliating Powder ($36).
3. Oily skin needs hydration too!
Even oilier skin types need moisture! In the absence of moisture post-cleanse, skin can actually produce more oil to compensate for the lack of hydration. Moisturizing morning and night will regulate skin’s oil production, and help regulate and control sebum production. Our Oil-free Daily Hydration Broad Spectrum SPF 15 ($36) controls excess oil and is good for all skin types. This doesn’t mean oily skins should stray away from products containing oil ingredients. Many are not aware that oil breaks up oil – don’t be afraid to opt for an oil to achieve your most radiant, beautiful skin! Try our Tsubaki Beauty Oil ($46) which provides the perfect amount of hydration to leave skin smoother, softer, and more supple.
4. Forgetting to Break-up the Makeup!
After a long day, washing your face may not register as a priority. Cleansed skin before you hit the sheets will prevent makeup and pore-clogging debris from irritating skin, and triggering breakouts overnight. Getting into the routine of cleansing your face nightly will result in clearer, healthier skin! For a quick, thorough cleanse, our MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil ($28) combined with our Konjac Cleansing Cloth ($15) makes makeup removal a breeze!
5. Not enough zzz’s or H2O!
Believe it or not, the amount of sleep and the amount of water you drink play a huge role in skin’s overall health. Dehydration can cause skin to appear dull and dry, but getting the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep can keep skin looking bright and enlivened. Our Super-Cool De-Puffing Eye Balm ($26) works wonders for those mornings requiring a little ‘pick-me-up’!
Beautiful skin starts from within! To achieve radiant healthy looking skin all your friends will be envious of follow these simple tips!
Limit sun exposure
Too much sun is no fun. When spending time outdoors, wear an SPF that is strong enough to protect from burning and aging. We suggest one of our UVA/UVB broad spectrum sunscreens such as the Daily Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA+++ . Wearing a hat will protect your head, your hair, and your face! The sun is one of our favorite things about summer, but be sure to enjoy the rays safely.
Staying hydrated during the warm summer months is a given! Drinking water plumps the skins cells, and helps the cells to regulate and perform their functions effectively. This translates to healthy, quenched, glowing skin that radiates from within. When your skin is primed with the right ingredients inside, the products you use on top work more effectively. So what are you waiting for? Get your drink on!
Eat your fruits and veggies! They are loaded with good for you ingredients such as antioxidants to help promote overall skin health and bodily health as well. The same ingredients found in many of our beloved products here at boscia can be found in the food you eat!
Avoid Major Changes in Temperature
Heading out into the scorching heat from a cool, air-conditioned room does not bode well with our skin. Using adequate skincare and taking the time to layer a serum and moisturizer will help preserve your skins hydration all day long, both indoors and outdoors. You can also apply an essence such as the Cool Blue Hydration Essence to keep your skin cool all summer long!
And there you have it, 4 simple tips to get amazing summer skin! What other tips do you have when it comes to achieving perfect summertime skin? Drop us a note we love to hear from you!
