sircuit, making our summer skin better

Our friends at Sircuit have put together a list of seven sun essentials that we couldn't help but agree on. Here's why:

1. swell, an oceanic cooling mask Most acclaimed as a cooling after-sun mask, Swell calms and hydrates the skin. It works in the shade too, though, to firm and refresh with its anti-aging properties.

2. molecular mist, hydrating moisture care It works in that dehydrating airplane air and sunshine alike and it's important when it comes to refreshing and hydrating our beat summer skin. We also love that Sircuit's take on the mist includes protection against UV rays and other environmental factors.

3. sol-avert SPF 30, ultimate UV defense It's Sircuit's classic yet fierce sun block - paraben-free and eco-friendly of course.

4. sircuit soleil, firming mineral self-bronzer We like to think of this one as safe sun at its best. Sircuit's streak-free bronzing self-tanner an almost instant seven day glow. Not to mention it can even be blended in with your favorite moisturizer to build a healthy tan any time of the year.

5. lavish, multi-use therapeutic dry oil It's an old-time favorite that turns out to be perfect for summer. Lavish absorbs quickly into skin and leaves behind a soft and subtle sheen.

6. sircuit weapon, 10% vitamin C therapy serum We don't only like this one for the name. It's also anti-aging, reduces the appearance of fine lines and improves your skins resilience and tone.

7. white out, daily under eye cream It may be cliche, but it is important to be easy on the eyes in this case. Sircuit has created a multi-tasking under eye cream that protects that delicate eye area from environmental damage. And as part of Made Better, White Out also bosts its Biolumen Firm technology, which captures UV light as energy and, like LED red-light therapy, utilizes beneficial aspects for the skin.

Ah, there’s that Georgia heat we know and love. While the dryness our skin and hair experiences Winter and the transition of Spring may have faded, heat brings a whole other set of changes. Stuff just builds up, whether on our hair or in the pores of our skin, and sometimes we just need a fresh start. How exactly to combat these new oils is the tricky part. Luckily, it’s Number 4 Clarifying Shampoo’s specialty.

Clarifying shampoo is vital in restoring health and shine when hair just feels down and in need of a (literal) lift. Number 4 has scented their clarifying shampoo with white freesia, golden amber, and warm musk, making you and your hair feel up. Stress, though, can come from associating clarifying with stripping, especially for those with colored hair. But Number 4 has formulated theirs so that it doesn’t strip moisture or color - pretty cool! The ingredients put into making it all work aren’t short on awesome either. Black currants and soy provide vibrancy, acai berry and vitamin c act as an anti-oxidant, and lemongrass and oatmeal cleanses and purifies. And remember, clarifying shampoo only needs to be used weekly so look at it as an opportunity to treat your self. It can also be looked at as a vital step in your routine for those sunny days filled with chlorine, salt water, and hard water from vacation homes and swimming pools.

It’s natural for new seasons to bring new sensations and Georgia has a tendency to bring a heavy summer. But with Number 4 by your side, we promise you’ll be ready to dive in.
