Written by: Angela Kim



Time to read 3 min

The Summer Solstice on Thursday, June 20, 2024 is the longest day of the year with the most hours of daylight. This special day marks a time of vibrant energy, renewal, and the peak of the sun’s power. 

Planning a day of intentional radiance helps you celebrate a new season with meaningful rituals, infusing your life with purpose and joy.

Let's start planning your perfect Summer Solstice day. Grab your Savor Beauty Planners to design your ideal day filled with activities that light you up, living what I call the Radiance Lifestyle. These intentional activities will fill your cup, helping you handle life’s unexpected ups and downs with grace and poise.

1. Start the Day with Sun Salutations

Begin your Summer Solstice with a series of sun salutations to honor the sun and its energy. Follow this with a few moments of meditation to set your intentions for the day. 

You can open your Savor Beauty Self-Care Planner to jot down your intentions and gratitude. This practice aligns your body and mind with the solstice energy, preparing you for a radiant day.

2. Protect + Nourish Skin with Radiance Sun Milk

As you soak in the extra sunlight, it’s crucial to protect your skin with a high SPF. Apply Savor Beauty’s Radiance Sun Milk SPF 50+ to shield your skin from harmful UV rays. This lightweight, non-greasy formula protects while lightly hydrating your skin.

Wearing SPF 50+ is important because it blocks 98% of UVB rays, reducing the risk of sunburn and long-term skin damage. Protecting your skin is essential for maintaining your natural radiance.

3. Prepare a Solstice Morning Chia Muesli

What you need:

  • ⅓ cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened nut milk
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • ½ tart green apple, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened nut butter


  1. Mix the yogurt, nut milk, cinnamon, chia seeds, and 1/2 apple together in a bowl. Leave to thicken for about 15 minutes.
  2. Top with the nut butter, apple slices, and a dash of cinnamon.

4. Indulge in a Summer Solstice Facial

Treat yourself to a DIY facial in honor of the Summer Solstice to leave your skin glowing.

  1. Start by mixing equal parts of the Jasmine Milk Cleanser and Yuzu Lemonade Peel to create an enzyme exfoliating treatment. Gently cleanse your skin, rinse off, and pat dry with a clean, soft towel.
  2. Mist your face with the Lavender Toning Mist to rebalance your skin's pH.
  3. Savor a luxurious massage by mixing equal parts of the moisture-boosting Hyaluronic Acid Serum with the line-diminishing Red Raspberry Facial Oil. Apply to your skin, massaging upward following the contours of your face.
  4. Apply the Radiant Rose Collagen Cream all over your face and neck, and revitalize your eye area with the Pomegranate Peptide Eye Serum.

This luxurious treatment will leave your skin glowing and ready to radiate the powerful energy of the solstice.

“Let the energy of the summer solstice help you to balance, release, recharge.”

5. Infuse Radiance into Your Workday

Even if it’s a workday, you can incorporate short breaks to step outside, enjoy the sunlight, and take deep breaths. Keep your workspace bright and organized. Schedule these mini breaks and jot down positive affirmations to keep your spirits high throughout the day.
