Hydrate like a windswept flower in the Mediterranean hills

Say what?! Moms, allow us to introduce you to the small, but definitely not humble, Clary Sage. This flower faces constant battering by the winds of the Mediterranean, and thrives by trapping and retaining moisture.

Natural skincare and beauty brand Burt’s Bees, has harnessed the power of this wonder flower in formulating its Intense Hydration line. The latest addition to the line is the Nourishing Facial Water with Clary Sage, a ‘nutrient-infused drink for your skin’.

FINALLY take the time to take care of yourself

To look young, you have to feel young. Drink lots of water, make GLOW foods take the lion’s share of your plate, and find – if not make – time for exercise.

Have a happy, glowing summer, moms!
