WINTER SKINCARE GUIDE, GREEN BEAUTY TO PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM THE ELEMENTS
January 1, 2018
HAPPY 2018 loves!! THE WINTER SKINCARE GUIDE IS HERE!!
Aweeeeee I don’t know about you but I always get so excited for the fresh start of a new year! It’s the perfect time to reflect and think about many blessings you received in the previous year and how you want to build on what you’ve learned to make the next year that much better! This blog has gone through some changes in the last year, all directed by feedback from you! I’ve been slowly making the transition away from sharing about restaurants/recipes and honing in on green beauty and holistic skincare. My background in aesthetic nursing, home fermenting, and adopting a non toxic beauty lifestyle has given me the tools to help you on your journey to your best skin! I’m kicking off the new year with a seasonal skincare guide to help you navigate how the changing climate is effecting your skin. It’s january and the majority of the northern hemisphere is experiencing dry conditions that strip the moisture from skin, leaving it dry and chapped. My four tried and trusted green beauty picks for this winter season will hydrate your skin without clogging pores or creating breakouts.
WINTER SKINCARE GUIDE
Step 1) Cocokind Organic Chlorophyll Face Mask: My new favorite clarifying mask, I suggest using it at least once a week to gently purify skin and prevent clogged pores.It has Chlorella, spirulina, and wheatgrass, all the detoxifying greens to brighten your skin. I also love that it has a mild tightening effect on my skin.
Step 2) Osea Ocean Milk Cleanser: My all time favorite creamy cleanser, I use it everyday! It cleans skin without stripping it, then hydrates with Patagonian alge, it’s the perfect winter cleanser for all skin types.
Step 3) Cocokind Organic Rosewater Facial Toner: A luxurious hydrating toner for under $20! I’ve been using this toner multiple times a day, it is soooooo refreshing. I love using it before I put on moisturizer and mid day if my skin feels dry. The organic rose water softens and soothes skin, while also reducing dryness and leaving skin refreshed.
Step 4) January Labs Retexturizing Night Cream: OMG this moisturizer! I can’t sing its praises enough! This stuff makes my skin glow! This moisturizer is pure magic because it contains a high level of lactic acid and fruit extracts that naturally exfoliate skin to prevent breakouts, cleans pores, and slough off dead skin. It also contains
hyaluronic acid to strengthen skin elasticity, plump skin,and deeply hydrate during dry winter months.
