Thinking about the best way to care for my skin isn't something I took seriously most of my life. Using all natural soap nearly my entire life and good genetics has blessed me in the skincare department. In recent years as I have delved into skincare development I've learned more about how to create the best skincare regimen for how my body is right now. In another five years my body might need more from me but for now I have found a simple, safe morning skincare routine that works for me.
I am a keep-it-simple kinda gal when it comes to skincare rituals. Less is more for my skin. I'm looking to the power of plants to hydrate, balance and heal my skin. The only make-up I wear is occasional mascara, brow pencil, eyeliner and highlighter. My favorite brand for make-up currently is the Honest Company. I am very sensitive to eye make-up and most other natural brands irritate my eyes.
My Morning Skin Care Routine:
❤ Wash my face with Sweet Sprig Carrot Basil Soap or Sweet Sprig Tea Tree + Calendula ( I alternate every couple of days.) In the summertime I swap out the Tea Tree Soap for Sweet Sprig Activated Charcoal soap to clean out bug spray, suntan lotion, sweat and environmental toxins.
❤ Once my skin has dried I apply Sweet Sprig Wild Carrot Replenishing Face Cream. My cream contains Carrot Seed Essential Oil, which enhances skin health and repairs damage on skin that has been exposed to pollution and environmental stress which leads to signs of aging.
❤ At least once per week (sometimes twice) I use a Sweet Sprig Botanical Facial Steam to deep clean my pores and give my skin a soft glow.
My Evening Skincare Routine
❤ Rinse face with warm water, pat dry with towel
❤ Remove eye makeup with Qet Botanicals brand Eye Makeup Remover
❤ Apply straight unrefined coconut oil in small gentle circles as needed
