Summer is the season for smoothness and there's no better time for going NO-LO!
If you're still using lotion here are our top five reasons to ditch it and get your summertime NO-LO on:
#6) The Pool. Chances are your swimming pool is chlorinated to keep it germ-free. That's a good thing. However, the effect that chlorine has on your skin, especially if it's sensitive, is not a good thing. Chlorine strips the oils from your skin and consequently dries it out. Chlorine can also cause rashes and skin irritation for those of us with sensitive skin. Take your Simple Sugars to the pool and use it in the shower after you're done swimming. It will keep you soft and smooth and no you won't need lotion! Our rec: Green Tea Body or Soothe and Smooth Sun because Green Tea is soooo good for your skin.
#5) The Ocean. Salt water is slightly less drying than chlorine, but still zaps the moisture out of your skin. Scrubbing after ocean swimming will keep you soft and smooth. Our rec: Coconut Body with Emu because it just smells so awesomely coconutty!
#4) Bathing suits, shorts, and all those tiny skin-baring clothes. Let's face it, when it's warm, people show more skin. Make sure the skin you're showing is glowing by scrubbing daily. Adopt a daily Simple Sugars routine and go directly from shower to halter top, no stopping for lotion. Our rec: Tangerine Body because it smells like sunshine.
#3) Sandals, flip-flops and bare feet. Your feet might actually be
the most exposed part of your body during the summer. And you know those summertime heels? All white and cracked and basically nasty looking...you don't want them! Nobody wants them. Our rec: The one and only Happy Feet or Smooth For Men Peppermint Foot
#4) Humidity. You know that sickening feeling when you're sweating literally right out of the shower? WE HATE THAT! You take a shower to get all refreshed and clean and it's so dang humid, your shower effect lasts all of about 3 seconds. The only thing worse than sweating out of the shower is trying to put lotion on. It just feels all kinds of gross. You will never love going NO-LO more than when it's 95 degrees with 96% humidity. Our rec: Lemonade Body or Lime Smooth For Men Body because they are so refreshing and you need every little bit of refreshment you can get when it's humid.
#1) The Sun. It's all about love/hate with the sun. We love the sun! It practically defines summer. Sunshine makes us happy! Being tan makes us look goood! BUT THE SUN CAUSES SKIN CANCER and it's your skin's number one foe because it also dries you out and makes you old looking. There's nothing to love and everything to hate about that. SO sunscreen always and Simple Sugars routinely (i.e. daily) to keep your relationship with the sun on the best possible terms. Our rec: Honeydew Body because it's freaking to die for.
