With life being so busy these days, many of us are looking to streamline our makeup and skin care routines without compromising effectiveness and quality of products.
At JAYDANCIN, our #1 recommendation is always to keep your skin nourished, hydrated, and protected from the sun. Where do we start? Let's take a look at what we use at JAYDANCIN that may be helpful to you:
From keeping our body’s temperature regulated, aiding in proper digestion, and of course, promoting skin health, there are many benefits to staying properly hydrated. If you are dehydrated you may experience dry skin, headaches, joint pain, low energy, and more.
If you’re in need of some hydration inspiration, why not infuse your water with fruit and herbs? Or maybe try herbal teas that can be made hot or cold depending on your preference. A nice cup of Nettle Peppermint or Harmony over ice is delicious and kid-friendly too! We also have a great electrolyte recipe for you to try! Click here to find out more. Don't forget our team favourite at JAYDANCIN, Cathy's Kombucha & Moonshine Mama. Fill a nice glass with ice, add a shot of your favourite Moonshine Elixir and top with Cathy's Kombucha. For an extra touch add a slice of lime, lemon or fruit! It is so delicious and good for the tummy!
2. Sun Protection
Coco Loco is a whole new way of thinking about sun protection without using any chemicals. In keeping with the JAYDANCIN philosophy ‘back to the basics', we have found research by Dr. Fife, that supports coconut oil as being the original sunscreen, used by islanders for generations. Based on this theory we have formulated our own original recipe.
This new way of thinking is to help protect your skin, not block the sun. Apply liberally to skin as required while in the sun. Coco Loco also makes a wonderful after sun moisturizer and protects from the wind. For best results, gradually build up your resistance to sun exposure using Coco Loco.
If you’re in need of a product that blocks the sun, we recommend All Good. This mineral sunscreen features clean, botanical protection and is committed to reef-safe ingredients that are lightweight, non-greasy, absorb easily, and even hydrate the skin!
3. After-Sun Care
After a day in the outdoors, don’t forget to nourish and rejuvenate your skin with an after-sun skincare routine. We recommend Unscented Pumpkin Butter Creme to help cool and soothe the skin - remember a little goes a long way!
For more extreme sunburn, we recommend Healing Cream or Plant-Aid Lotion, which can assist to moisturize and soothe.
4. Facial Mist Spray
Facial Mist Spray is wonderful for a hydrating pick-me-up during the day or after a workout! Just a few spritzes will leave your mind bright and your skin refreshed. Try our Facial Mist with spearmint essential oils for an uplifting burst, or the Rose Facial Mist to calm and soothe. For on the go, we have sizes that will fit right into your purse! Just shake and spray!
On hot, sticky summer days you want to make sure you are using a clean, effective deodorant. Let's chat about deodorants for a minute. Recently a customer asked us to make our deodorant in a stick form for their young teen daughter as she doesn't like using her fingers to apply our deodorant. It's not cool in the dance, hockey or yoga locker rooms to not use a stick deodorant or spray. We get it! We want to share 'why' we made our deodorant as it is. With breast cancer being so prevalent, we wanted to do something to help. By gently applying our deodorant with your fingertips, you have the opportunity to physically and subconsciously connect with your armpits and would quickly notice if there was anything differently happening in this area. Think about it, we use sprays and roll ons and never touch our armpits. We have had 2 women thank us to say if it wasn't for our deodorant, they would never have found their lump in time. So now our dilemma is, do we be cool or do we be practical?? Ask for a sample of our deodorant next time you are in the store or online. Just so you know, we are still pretty cool because our deodorant really works!!
6. Moisturize, Moisturize!
Keep your skin moisturized with a great selection of our creams and lotions and serum. Tried and true favourites are still the Healing Cream, Calendula Cream and Plant-Aid which all are available in cream and lotion. Pair your favourite moisturizer with our amazing antioxidant rich vitamin C serum, rC3 Facial Serum, for a one two punch against dryness! The Pumpkin Butter is one of THE most loved butters in JAYDANCIN history and for good reason! Available in unscented or the heavenly La Dolce Vita (It's a Good Life) scent. Ask any of us which is our favourite!
A good ol' saying...all soap is not created equal. We are known for our amazing soaps. We have on hand at any given time over 1,000 bars of soaps to choose from in our beautiful soap bar. If you are not sure of using a bar of soap on your face, please ask us for a sample. You will love it! Choose from an unscented, gorgeous 100% olive soap bar to one with citrus notes, to floral and earthy notes, or to our most famous organic goats milk & honey soaps. Bet you can't pick just one!
8. Love Bug
We can't forget clean protection from the pesky bugs in the summer. We finally have nice weather ahead of us and we need the valuable Vitamin D, so don't waste time, get outside! We have created Love Bug in a spray, lotion and soap. It is a great idea to layer the lotion with the spray for even more protection. Love Bug is made with an effective essential oil blend to assist in keeping the bugs away! Try dry rubbing the soap on your arms and legs or putting a piece of soap in your sock if you are hiking. It really works, try it! Generously apply the Love Bug Lotion on arms, legs and don't forget behind the ears! Apply the Love Bug Spray…Shake & Spray.
9. Body Powder
How refreshing to use a body powder with clean ingredients! Try the "Lady Bits" powder for under here, down there & everywhere to stay fresh & dry. Click here for available scents and ingredients.
10. Lip Balm
Keep your lips hydrated and protected with lip balm from All Good SPF or our coconut based lip balm.
