First things first... Happy Summer! And it's been a bit, so I want to say thanks for welcoming Anna to the team. It's been a beautiful thing. And we know summer is a season of different schedules and rhythms and more rest and more fun, so we hope you plan to take care of yourself and come see us!
Love the Sun, the Sun will Love You
The sun is not playing any games with us this summer. Most of us are in for something that requires less clothes most days and to hop in some swimwear the rest. We all want a glow from catching rays, but also don't want to end up compromising the only skin we have by roasting it to the point it looks like our favorite leather bag.
Today you get a permission slip. You know the ones you used to get back in the day or possibly the ones you're currently signing for little ones. This permission slip will grant you access to the sun without lingering shame of over indulgence or worse, sunburns for days. The only thing you have to do for a signature is to follow the advice below, and you are well on your way to guilt free fun in the sun.
The Beauty Room has a more holistic outlook on sun protection which means the sun is YOUR FRIEND. The kind of friend that loves you. Which means you need to not abuse it.
attention to what you are using. If you are using traditional SPF, be sure to read the labels. You need Broad Spectrum that helps protect from UVA and UVB rays. Honestly, nothing over 30 SPF is going to be more beneficial if you are truly reapplying it when you're supposed to. Plant based oils that have natural SPF are the best route. Think about it... most plants are out here in the sun thriving! It's largely due to sinapate esters. It's totally worth an hour long google search if you want details. We absolutely swear by anything with Red Raspberry Seed Oil or Tamanu Oil for plant based protection.
to your body and how the sun reacts with it. It is really the simplest and best advice. Many want to slather on sunscreen thinking it gives them permission to stay in the sun longer. It does not. Our bodies are designed to tell us EVERYTHING we need to know. Once your skin is feeling pretty hot and you are getting flushed, it's time to head in or cover up.
While this is simple, yet amazing advice, check to see if it resonates with you. If so, follow up with your holistic MD on further advice for alternative sun protection practices.
It's First Friday Season on Haynie's Corner and we'd love to have you join us at The Beauty Room for what we think is a pretty great vibe.

And if you haven't had your aura checked lately or are just obsessed like us, New Moon Mystic is offering their Aura Photography for $30. We look forward to seeing you!
In the month of June we are sharing our current obsession (the intoxicating aroma of Tangerine and Peppermint) with you by way of a free essential oil add-on to any facial treatment. Tangerine is the perfect sunny uplifting scent and Peppermint is the cool-it-all-down compliment. Come enjoy this with us!
