As summer cruises into the hotter and sunnier months, it’s important not to forget about taking care of your skin this season. Here are a few of our favorite Marula Beauty tips to keep your skin moisturized, healthy, and protected.
Your Mistake: Not applying often enough
An ABC (only applying during August, baseball games, and concerts) sunscreen regimen is not enough to fully protect your skin during the summer. Even if the sun doesn’t feel hot you are still being exposed to damaging rays. So skipping the sunscreen at your office patio party, while grilling on the deck on Saturday afternoon, or before you hit the outlet mall is causing more damage than you think.
Your enemies: Free Radicals
Free radicals penetrate the skin to attack healthy cells. The main sources of free radicals? Sun and pollution. That’s where antioxidants come in; they can help protect the face from these sources. Marula oil contains Vitamin E and other high antioxidant powers that can help protect against free radicals and is an excellent source of topical antioxidants, the free radical fighting capability is very important for skin.

The North Pole is cold! The wind and cold dry Elf's skin during his trips back home at night. He couldn't help but notice that your face and hands are staying smooth and radiant with your “magical” oil that protects your skin locking in moisture giving your skin that holiday glow.
We know Marula is on Santa’s list thanks to our watchful friends, just don’t be surprised if your bottle feels a little lighter after your elf leaves, he just had to try some Marula for himself! Read more

Karen Lobo and Billie Gentry are the owners of Twig and Willow, a beach side boutique in Long Beach that has a magic formula for success; two neighbors, both with different talents, who saw an opportunity when they spotted a little space at 4th & Grand pop up for rent. A love for the word “twig” and “willow” inspired the name of their boutique and the red robin mascot reflects the abundance of birds in the neighborhood.
