As ambassadors of holistic wellness, we understand that true beauty is more than just skin deep—it's a reflection of our inner vitality, confidence, and authenticity. That's why our approach to summer beauty extends beyond cosmetics and skincare; it's about embracing a lifestyle that nurtures both body and soul, allowing you to shine with a luminous glow that emanates from within.

So, whether you're lounging poolside, exploring sun-kissed landscapes, or simply savoring the joys of lazy summer days, we invite you to join us on this journey of self-care, self-love, and self-discovery. Together, let's illuminate the world with our radiant presence and embrace the endless possibilities of summer.


Hydration is the cornerstone of summer wellness, and at MACHETE, we believe that staying hydrated is the key to unlocking your full potential and embracing the season with vitality and vigor. As the temperatures soar and the sun beats down, it's easy to underestimate the power of water in keeping our bodies functioning optimally. Yet, hydration is more than just quenching our thirst—it's a fundamental aspect of self-care that nourishes our cells, supports our organs, and energizes our minds. That's why we're passionate about spreading the message of hydration and empowering individuals to make it a priority in their daily lives. Whether you're sipping on a tall glass of water infused with refreshing slices of cucumber and mint or indulging in juicy fruits like watermelon and strawberries that boast high water content, there are countless ways to stay hydrated and keep your body humming with vitality. So, this summer, let's raise a glass to hydration and toast to our health, happiness, and well-being.

Skin and Hair Protection

Summer is synonymous with sunshine, but as we bask in its golden rays, it's essential to remember to shield our skin and scalp from harm. At MACHETE, we're passionate about promoting healthy skincare habits, and that starts with sun protection. The summer sun may feel glorious on our skin, but its UV rays can wreak havoc, causing premature aging, sunburn, and even skin cancer. That's why we advocate for the daily use of sunscreen, rain or shine, as a non-negotiable step in your skincare routine.

We suggest applying a Scalp Hair Mist with a comb, such as our No. 2 Comb, which is a wide tooth handcrafted from fine Italian acetate and suitable for all hair types and textures.

Incorporate Superfoods

From succulent berries bursting with antioxidants to leafy greens teeming with vitamins and minerals, the summer harvest offers a cornucopia of nutrient-rich delights that can elevate your health and vitality to new heights. Incorporating these superfoods into your diet not only nourishes your body on a cellular level but also supports glowing skin, luscious hair, and boundless energy. So why not celebrate the flavors of summer with a vibrant salad bursting with colorful vegetables, or whip up a refreshing smoothie packed with tropical fruits and leafy greens?

Stay Active Outdoors

Summer invites us to break free from the confines of indoor spaces and embrace the great outdoors, and at MACHETE, we're all about seizing the sunshine and moving our bodies in nature's playground. There's something magical about taking your workout routine outside during the summer months—the fresh air, the sunshine, the scenic vistas—it all adds up to an invigorating and soul-nourishing experience. Whether you're stretching out on a beach towel for a sunrise yoga session, hitting the trails for a scenic hike, or pedaling your way through picturesque landscapes on a bike ride, outdoor exercise offers a myriad of benefits for both body and mind. Not only does it provide an opportunity to soak up vitamin D and boost your mood, but it also allows you to connect with nature in a profound and meaningful way.

Take A Class

Whether you're a seasoned yogi looking to mix up your routine or a complete novice eager to dip your toes into the world of wellness, there's never been a better time to step out of your comfort zone and embark on a new adventure. From Pilates classes that promise to sculpt and strengthen your body from head to toe to painting workshops that ignite your creativity and unleash your inner artist, the options are as diverse and exciting as the summer itself. So why not challenge yourself to step outside of the familiar and embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth? Who knows, you might just uncover a hidden talent or passion that sets your soul on fire. With our support and encouragement, you have everything you need to embrace the unknown and make this summer one for the books. So go ahead, take that first step, and let the adventure begin!
