Easy Ways to Update Your Beauty Routine for Spring & Summer

Warmer weather is here and that means that for the best skin and hair, it’s time to shake up your beauty routine. Luckily, we’ve got the products (and the experts) to help you make the most of spring and summer. Aveda Makeup Pure-Fessional Anne Skubis can show you how to glow and look gorgeous all spring and summer long.


First up: skin care! Anne’s number one product pick is, of course, Daily Light Guard SPF 30. (She lives in Arizona, so SPF is always a priority.) Daily Light Guard is a lightweight, blendable, 100% mineral-derived sunscreen AND a plant-derived pollution defense, suitable for all skin types. It keeps your skin protected from UVA/UVB rays, and Anne also thinks it makes a great makeup primer!

Cleaning out your beauty cabinet and swapping winter products for summer ones doesn’t need to be a chore — have fun with it! “In winter, when the heat is on full blast, I grab the Tulasāra Renew Morning Crème to make up for any moisture deficiency I experience,” Anne says. Once the heat is off, she reaches for Botanical Kinetics Intense Hydrating Soft Crème, a plant-powered crème that doesn’t feel heavy or sticky. “I love using the Botanical Kinetics All-Sensitive Cleanser year-round, but when the seasons change and my allergies act up, I find that I need it even more.” To treat your skin, try Tulasāra Calm Concentrate. Its springy aroma of oman chamomile, clary sage and neroli will get you in the right seasonal headspace.

With a change in hair color comes the opportunity to change up makeup and try something different,” she says. “I like to wear deep crimson reds like Feed My Lips lipstick in Chili in fall and winter and change to bright apple reds in the spring and summer — I like Jujube and Cana. I do the same with the eye shadow colors, switching from deep jewel tones like the Plum Mist trio to bright, fresh colors like Aqua Pearl and Earth Rose.”


Give in to the temptation to go a little lighter and brighter with nature-inspired rose pink and orange tones that mimic the colors of a summertime sunset. If pink is your favorite color, try Feed My Lips lipstick in juicy Guava or Prickly Pear. They look gorgeous with a summer glow and even better with an iced tea or a glass of rosé. Just saying.

Burn off Haircolor!?

If you have colored hair this post is for you! Did you know that not only can over washing and using subpar hair products strip color from your hair but your hot tools can as well???  Using a hair dryer, curling, or flat iron at too high a setting is a big no-no for preserving the longevity of your color as well as maintaining the integrity of your hair. Please watch the video from celebrity hairstylist Guy Tang and Noora for details. And turn down those hot tools!!

Cheers to 8 Years!

Today is a great day! We are celebrating 8 years at Naviina and we are moving into our 9th Summer season! It also happens to be National Hairstylist Appreciation Day! So if you haven’t thanked your favorite stylist for all they do for you, today would be the perfect day! Three cheers for 8 wonderful years!!!

Thin Hair? Read, Watch, and Learn.

We have many clients with fine, thin hair and we have many products to help! The newly formulated Invati line is perfect for those with noticeably thinning hair, or if they want to jumpstart growth and add fullness, with its exfoliating shampoo, thickening conditioner, and invigorating scalp revitalizer. Aveda’s Thickening Tonic is one of our best sellers! It actually thickens and expands each strand of hair when used before styling for weightless volume. We also can’t forget Aveda’s Pure Abundance line, with ingredients like kaolin clay and acacia gum to plump and boost volume everyday. 

Light the Way with Vetiver

You’ve probably smelled vetiver at some point in your life and not even known it. The woody aroma, which comes from a tall, hardy grass grown from India to Haiti, is a popular ingredient in perfumery. Some fragrances heavily feature vetiver, especially colognes, and others use the ingredient as a “fixative” to help the scent last longer. At Aveda, we use vetiver in products like Tulasāra Firm Concentrate, Chakra Body Mist #1, and the Aveda Men line.


“It’s quite complex, rich and deep, but it has an interesting twist to it because it has a bit of sparkly grapefruit,” says Associate Pure-Fumer Kate Rosso, who works in Aveda’s Aroma Lab onsite at our HQ in Minnesota. “It’s a grass, but it’s the roots that are distilled for perfumery. The roots are really deep, and because of that, it’s a pretty hardy plant and it can survive in either dry or wet soil. It also helps prevent soil erosion.”



Vetiver is the new star ingredient in our limited-edition 2018 Light the Way candle. The Light the Way candle has become an Aveda Earth Month tradition, with 100% of the suggested purchase price of the candle going to Global Greengrants to fund clean water projects around the world. The vetiver aroma does more than just scent your home with rich, woody aroma, though.


We’ve been working with the people of Haiti to harvest our vetiver for years, but on
October 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew devastated the island, killing over 1,000 people​ and devastating the region. The vetiver farmers lost a majority of their crops, along with their animals and homes. Working with Global Greengrants, we immediately sent $10,000 from Light the Way candle sales to Heifer International to help fund a generator for one of the large water bottling plants in the affected area. In addition, $5,000 was also provided to the Lambi Fund to provide more clean drinking water and infrastructure repair for those in most need in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.



The Light the Way candle proceeds have also helped Haiti rebuild. Working together with Aquatic Resources Conservation Group (ARC), we’re helping to construct three sustainably built homes in the community of Favette, with bathrooms, solar stoves and solar lighting.


The Favette Vetiver Depot and Community Center is also being built in partnership with Heifer International and International Flavor and Fragrance, one of our top aroma distributors. The center will be earthquake, tornado and flood-resistant, and will include a water catchment system to provide water for the community, plus offices, bathrooms and more, giving the people of Favette a place to gather.


In total, you’ve helped us give a grand total of $170,000 in grants for Haiti since 2010 — pretty amazing, right? Every time you light your new Earth Month candle, enjoy the vetiver aroma and think of the good work you’re helping us carry out in a very special place.

We have just a few candles left at Naviina for purchase, stop by to get yours! Only $14.00!
