how to safely ditch summer itch
Woohoo — it’s summertime! That means sunshine, swimming, biking, hiking …
Unfortunately, exposure to sun, chlorine, insects, and other summer situations can leave skin feeling itchy and irritated. It’s important to avoid scratching, which can further irritate skin and even break skin open, putting you at risk of infection. Certain store-bought itch soothers can also cause harm, as they’re likely to be made with toxic ingredients.
Pure haven offers safe, non toxic products made with fresh, effective ingredients to help you safely ditch summer itch. Here’s how:
- Bug bites: Nothing ruins summer fun like pesky, biting insects! When they get to you, apply a cool compress to help reduce inflammation and then apply neem-o as needed. Neem-o is made with skin-nourishing ingredients like tea tree, lavender, chamomile, and neem oils. Boo boo stick is also helpful with relieving the itch of bug bites.
- Cuts, scrapes, and rashes: Boo boo stick and neem-o can help with these types of skin irritations, too. Boo boo stick is loaded with botanicals, including neem and rose hip oil, and comes in a handy stick form for on-the-go convenience. Neem-o’s skin-nourishing ingredients calm sores and itchiness.
- Dry skin: Days spent in the sun or floating in a chlorine-treated pool can wreak havoc on your skin, causing dry itchiness from head to toe. Pure haven sweet orange dream cream, body butter with pre+probiotics, and berry sangria body butter with pre+probiotics* are each formulated to nourish skin with a variety of ingredients to provide excellent hydration. Apply within five minutes of showering or bathing, while skin is still slightly damp, and reapply throughout the day as needed to soothe and soften skin.
- Dry hair and scalp: Again, the sun and chorine are doozies when it comes to drying out your ‘do. Revive your luscious locks with our supergreens collection. It’s made to bring dry, damaged hair back to life with the help of beneficial vegetable proteins.
- Chapped lips: Our 3-step lip care collection is perfect for soothing dry, chapped lips after a day out in the summer sun. Apply lip balm, made with organic shea butter, beeswax, and essential oils, throughout the day to keep lips soft and hydrated. Sugar lip scrub helps buff and moisturize. Our nourishing overnight lip mask works after hours to provide ultimate hydration.
