The dead of summer is coming! With it comes the inevitable rise in temperature. While we love soaking up the sun (while protected), our skincare routines might not be so keen on the heat.
Our pure creams do not contain any artificial binders and can change consistency if they get too hot during shipping. But fear not! There are so many benefits to using a pure body cream that melts in extreme hot weather. We’re listing a few of them just for you!
Why is it a good thing that my pure cream can melt in the heat?
It means your cream is all-natural.
If your body cream is made with all-natural ingredients, it's likely that it doesn't contain any of the synthetic additives that keep other creams from melting in the heat. That's a good thing! It means you're not putting any harmful chemicals on your skin. Instead, you're relying on natural ingredients like Organic Shea Butter, which is found in all of our body creams, to keep your skin hydrated and happy.
It's more absorbent.
When your cream melts in hot weather, it's more easily absorbed into your skin. That's because the heat and humidity opens up your pores and allows the cream to sink in more deeply. This can be especially beneficial if you're using a cream that contains nourishing ingredients like vitamins or antioxidants like Prickly Pear Cactus found in Cactus Crush. By allowing them to penetrate more deeply, you're giving your skin an extra dose of nourishment and protection.
Store your skincare properly.
This is your reminder to be store your skincare properly. Pure creams don't contain the stabilizing additives that keep other creams from melting, so they're more sensitive to changes in temperature. By keeping your cream in a cool, dark place (like a mini fridge), you can help it maintain its texture and consistency. Plus, there's nothing like a refreshing burst of cool Boho Coco on a hot summer day!
It's so easy to apply.
Let's face it: there's nothing worse than trying to slather on a thick, gloopy cream when the temperature is climbing. Our creams are much easier to apply. They are supremely spreadable and lightweight. That means you can get the hydration your skin needs without feeling like you're wearing a heavy mask.
Embrace the melt!
So the next time you find yourself staring down at a puddle of pure cream, don't panic. Before that happens, we recommend that you pop your cream in the fridge for a few hours and stir well before you slather it on. This one step will ensure that your cream has the wonderful texture and efficacy that you are used to.
The melt is a sign that you're using a natural product that's good for your skin, and it might even make your skincare routine a little bit easier. Just remember to store it properly, and enjoy the summer heat knowing that your skin is well taken care of.
