Summer Self-Care Essentials with Nontoxic Ingredients to Keep in the Office

From sweltering hot weather to dehydrated, air-conditioned offices, summertime can be brutal on skin. Whether you’re dealing with dry and chapped lips or bothersome sunburns after an adventurous weekend in the sun, taking care of your skin should be a priority to prevent damage and encourage health. If your skin is already sensitive or prone to dryness year-round, it’s time to look at products with more natural ingredients and nontoxic formulas.


Since you probably spend the majority of your day in the office, here are a couple of summer self-care essentials to keep on hand to care of your skin.

Glycerin Lotion

Plant-based glycerin is the natural jackpot for deep hydration without chemicals or toxic ingredients. Glycerin is a great ingredient in hand and body lotions for sensitive skin types, including conditions like dermatitis or psoriasis. It interrupts flaking and chronic dryness, allowing skin cells to reach maturity and full growth while protecting with deep hydration. Other ingredients that help with natural hydration and promote skin strength include sweet almond oil, cucumber extract, and aloe.

Air-conditioned environments can be extremely dry, making it difficult for your skin to maintain a healthy water balance long-term. Keep a pot or travel-size bottle of glycerin lotion on your desk and moisturize throughout the day. Apply to your hands, elbows, knees, and wrists, where dryness most often occurs.

Cocoa Butter Lip Balm

Dry and cracked lips can be painful, and aren’t anyone’s favorite part of summer weather. Can’t remember the last time you updated the old lip balm sitting at the bottom of your purse? It’s time to upgrade to a better lip balm.

Natural lip balm formulas that include organic cocoa butter, beeswax, coconut oil, and Vitamins A and E hydrate by nature and promote healthy cell growth to replenish dry and cracked skin. They also don’t leave a waxy or sticky finish like other formulas, making it easy to want to use it throughout the day. Place one in your purse, at your desk, or anywhere else you know you’ll need it throughout the day.

Tip: Look for lip balms that use stevia, which naturally sweetens, rather than cane sugar.

Face Cream

If your face is prone to dryness or conditions like eczema or dermatitis, Vitamin E lotion works wonders for soothing skin and providing healthy antioxidants. While too much can often cause breakouts for acne-prone skin, treating summer dryness with Vitamin E products can restore skin to its original glory.

Keep a face cream with Vitamin E as a key ingredient in your desk drawer and apply as needed to stubborn dry areas during hot summer weather.

Staying on top of self-care during the summer doesn’t have to mean waiting until you get home every day to take care of your skin. Choose vegan formulated products with natural ingredients to care for your skin at a deeper level and stay hydrated, protected, and radiant all summer long.
