Natural summer beauty tips

As the sun-soaked summer season approaches, the allure of long, balmy days and carefree moments beckons us outdoors. Summer holds the promise of relaxation and adventure, but it also presents unique challenges for our skin, particularly for those with aging skin.

We know the vital role that skincare plays in maintaining a healthy and radiant complexion throughout the summer months. The intense heat, increased humidity, and prolonged sun exposure that define the summer season can wreak havoc on your skin, especially if it is already grappling with the effects of aging or specific skin conditions.

Natural Tips for a Healthy and Radiant Glow

From heightened sensitivity to exacerbated dryness, acne flare-ups, and increased risk of sunburn, the summer poses formidable challenges for your skin's health and vitality.

But the good news is that a few summer beauty essentials and tips are all you need to protect your skin from the blazing heat and prevent any skin issues. Read on to know more about our holy-grail skin tips (trust us, they’ve come in handy more than you can imagine!)

Summer beauty tip #1 Pick the Right Cleanser 

Natural Tips for a Healthy and Radiant Glow

Choosing the perfect cleanser during the summer is essential to keep your skin refreshed and balanced, regardless of your skin type. For oily or acne-prone skin, opt for a gentle gel cleanser that helps control excess oil without stripping the skin.

Dry or sensitive skin will benefit from a creamy and hydrating cleanser that replenishes moisture. Combination skin can find harmony with a foaming cleanser that balances oil production. Look for clean and organic options that cater to your specific skin needs, ensuring a summer of clear and radiant complexion.

Empress Tip:
If you have combination or mature skin that craves extra care, Elizabeth recommends her personal blend of nourishing oils. She combines castor oil, coconut oil, and pomegranate oil in a carrier oil, as she values the soothing properties of oils for her skin.

Summer beauty tip #2 Keep the Moisturizer Handy 

Moisturization is crucial for all skin types, especially during the summer months. For dry skin, a rich and hydrating moisturizer helps replenish lost moisture and prevent flakiness.

Oily skin benefits from lightweight, oil-free moisturizers that provide hydration without clogging pores. Mature skin requires anti-aging formulas that deeply moisturize and promote elasticity.

Regardless of your skin type, proper moisturization in the summer helps maintain a healthy skin barrier, prevents dryness, and keeps your complexion supple and glowing. 

Natural Tips for a Healthy and Radiant Glow

Try the Empress Naturals 2-step Serum Set for all your moisturization needs. The serums are made with organic essential oils of the highest quality that penetrate your skin (without clogging your pores!) and are so lightweight that your skin will never feel oily.

They are perfect for all skin types with Rosehip Seed that rejuvenates and nourishes from within. 

Summer beauty tip #3 Keep the Makeup Light 

Just as you adjust your wardrobe for summer, your makeup routine should also lighten up. Avoid heavy layers that can suffocate your skin and lead to clogged pores. Opt for natural tinted moisturizers to protect and enhance your skin's natural summer radiance.

Summer beauty tip #4 Include Antioxidants in your Routine 

Including skincare products infused with antioxidants is key for effective hydration and protection of the skin. Antioxidants not only moisturize, but also combat environmental damage, boost collagen production, and neutralize free radicals for overall skin health.

Try incorporating an antioxidant rich serum like the Luxe Night Elixir into your summer skincare regimen. It combats signs of aging with a shot of potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatories to fight stressors and replenish overtaxed skin. 

Summer beauty tip #5 Replenish your Body 

Your body needs the same amount of nourishment as your skin, sometimes even more! Long days at the pool or at the beach, your body definitely needs some replenishment.

Keep a body moisturizer or oil handy that can help restore the hydration and radiance of your skin.

Our Calming Massage Oil is just what you need. The oil is enriched with high-quality essential oils that not only rehydrate your skin but also promote improved sleep quality, leaving you feeling refreshed in more ways than one!

Summer beauty tip #6 Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate 

So simple yet so necessary! In addition to adhering to the provided summer skincare beauty tips, it is vital to maintain a daily intake of at least 2-3 liters of water to promote a radiant complexion.

Opting for hydrating alternatives like coconut water and fresh juices can help ensure proper hydration. Water consumption aids in the elimination of toxins from the body. Incorporating cooling foods such as salads, cucumbers, and lettuce helps regulate body temperature.

To support healthy skin, include seasonal fruits like watermelons and muskmelons, along with citrus fruits and juices in your diet.

Here’s a recipe for a hydrating summer smoothie that we love for that extra boost of radiance: 


  • 1 cup of fresh mixed berries (such as blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup of spinach or kale leaves
  • 1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1 cup of coconut water or almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon of honey or maple syrup (optional for added sweetness)
  • Ice cubes (optional)


Blend all ingredients together. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

Summer beauty tip #7 Don’t Forget your Hair 

Lastly, it is often overlooked that choosing the appropriate hair care products plays a vital role in maintaining clear skin, particularly in the summer when pores are more prone to acne.

Healthy hair begins with a well-nourished scalp and conditioned roots. However, the challenge lies in the fact that numerous shampoos and conditioners, even those from reputable salon brands, contain sulfates and other pore-clogging ingredients that can trigger breakouts on the face and back.

We highly recommend MASAMI’s Mekabu Shampoo & Conditioner instead! This exquisite shampoo is a low foaming formula, enriched with the power of the Japanese ocean plant Mekabu, that nourishes, brings shine and moistures all hair types.
