I am a woman from the mountains: yearning to walk in nature, speaking to birds, feeling the air pinching my cheeks and appreciating my natural beauty. My beauty philosophy is to stay away from needles and firmly acknowledge the power of excellent skincare, plus a whole a lot of inner beauty. Skincare is more than a frivolous luxury. Whether handmade, bought at a department story or mixed by your local herbalist, skincare refreshes the body and therefore the soul.
These are my new favorite skincare products for a more extensive morning routine. They are light and refreshing but pack a punch. My skin has never been this smooth.
The undeniable power of a clay mask is to draw out impurities and refine your skin tone. This is your secret weapon for beautiful skin and your pores will thank you for it. Saian is a brand for spas and aestheticians, however that should not stop you from exploring their offerings. The spa industry has helped pioneer green beauty, so you can count on this one to contain no artificial color, no artificial fragrance, and no parabens. Even sensitive skin types will be comforted to know that although this mask is extremely effective, it is safe and will leave you with baby soft skin.
Morning rituals have the ability to make or break your day. Washing your face is a necessary skincare must-do, so make it a transformative experience. Wake up with a refreshing scent of mandarin, orange and grapefruit. Although this cleanser removes makeup like a dream, I do enjoy the scent and restored radiance in the morning. Using it helps my skin feel balanced and pampered. Originally made for professionals, this product delivers aesthetician secrets right to your sink.
Toner is a must for every skin type, but if you dislike the usual application, try a spray. Being a big fan of facial sprays myself, I like to keep a few options in my refrigerator. A spray toner can do so much more. You can use it to help set your makeup and keep refreshing it throughout the day. Yes, toners are a necessary step in your routine. They prep your skin for your serum and moisturizer. OzNaturals Co-Founder, Angela Irish, is a Certified Aesthetician. The entire line is quite impressive and made from natural ingredients.
I never thought I could benefit from a lash serum. My lashes are pretty great, but after using WildMint I realized that they can be even better. It is so easy to swipe onto the root of your eyelashes. For best results, use it in the morning and night. Mascara can really wear out your lashes, but the right serum can help restore the damage. Make it a part of your routine and ditch those false lashes.
Eye care should never be ignored, especially if you start seeing dark circles and lines. Wake up your eyes and pamper your skin with coffee seed and carrot root extracts. Not all eye creams are made alike. It is always exciting to find one that actually works. My favorite eye creams get stored in the refrigerator. When applied they feel a lot more refreshing and help me wakeup, getting me out the door that much faster.
As a woman in her late 30s, I can appreciate a good serum. Although I have tried many serums and facial oils, few feel as light and refreshing as this one. If you are a fan of light textures and innovative science, make this serum a part of your skincare arsenal. The creators of Sustainable Youth have studied aloe’s regenerative and hydrating benefits, creating a green skincare line that is both unique and effective. The entire line is formulated with alasta®. I find that when science and skincare get together, the marriage usually results in youthful skin.
Finish off with a lightweight moisturizer that is hydrating and protects your skin from environmental damage. The Founders of Planted In Beauty have ensured that you get all the benefits of luxury skincare, minus the toxins. The texture feels refreshing and although I am a bigger fan of facial oils rather than creams, I have been loving the way this moisturizer leaves my skin feeling and looking naturally healthy.
