When you’re spending any time outdoors or near the water, it’s important to not only be prepared for any injuries that may occur. That’s why it’s important to have waterproof bandages on hand. While the average bandages provide some waterproof protection, DrySee bandages take wound protection a step further. DrySee bandages use color-changing technology to let you know when the bandage needs to be changed. If the seal is broken and a wound is at risk of potential exposure, the bandage will turn blue indicating the wound should be cleaned and a new bandage applied. That’s why DrySee is essential for anyone swimming in a public pool, ocean, lake, or other waterways this Spring.

Their Inspiration skincare range lets you choose from brightening, exfoliating, purifying, hydrating, and/or detoxifying to supply your skin with the essential nutrients it needs to function (from Mother Earth herself!)

UK-based 7th Heaven has just introduced the Tea Tree Peel Off Mask – a must-have for both combo and oily skin. Tea tree is the “it” ingredient this summer as it banishes away blemishes, balances the skin’s oil levels, and soothes irritated skin. In this formula, it is paired with witch hazel and willowherb to remove dead skin cells, deep cleanse and refresh. The peel-off format (be sure and let it dry completely – leave on about 15 minutes) makes it gentler than a scrub which can irritate acne or blemish-prone skin. As a bonus, it comes in a single-serve sachet which makes it perfect for travel, and it’s available at Walmart for just $1.37. Cruelty-free and vegan.
