Happy #21DaysOfMe Thursday! Today we teamed up with Herbivore Botanicals to bring you a simplified beauty routine. Yes, simple is a good thing! Check out Herbivore Botanicals’ tips and tricks below.
The new year is the perfect time to start a new ritual. How we care for our skin goes way deeper than just what we put on our faces: it can be a major act of self-care! If we use our skincare rituals to nourish and support our bodies rather than attacking it, our bodies will reflect that back with healthy, calm, and radiant skin. It’s easy to be tempted to try out many different products in hopes of getting the results we want but this year we invite you to simplify your routine and amplify your intention. What do we mean by that? Use less products but with more love and care! We put together a simple skincare ritual for you that if done daily with gentle attention and adoration for your beautiful skin will produce results that will leave you feeling radiant all year long. Try it out for a few weeks and see how much your skin will glow in return!
Step 1. – FACIAL MIST
After cleansing your face, use one of our facial mists to hydrate your skin and provide extra nourishment. Our Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist adds extra hydration and Rose has been used for thousands of years in beauty rituals so its perfect for that subtle glow. Our Jasmine Green Tea Balancing Toner delivers a rich dose of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, making this perfect for those who’s skin needs a little extra TLC to reduce inflammation.
Step 2. – FACIAL OIL
Now moving onto the extra nourishing step! Facial oils are a wonderful way to hydrate skin and deliver the benefits of each oil by massaging the skin gently for at least 60 seconds. Our Lapis Oil is perfect for those with blemishes and other inflammatory conditions with its ultra anti-inflammatory Blue Tansy. The Phoenix Oil is a favorite to regenerate skin cells, reduce fine lines, and also heal marks left behind from blemishes thanks to Sea Buckthorn and Rosehips oil. If you’re looking for an extra boost of hydration, our Orchid Oil not only smells divine but preserves youth and replenishes hydration with a blend of Orchid Extract, Jasmine Sambac, and Japanese Camilla Flower. Take 3-5 drops of the oil of your choice and blend it into your palm with a few sprays of facial mist. The combination of the oil and water helps the oils to penetrate deeper into your skin as it matches the oil/water ratio of your skins surface. Gently and lovingly massage for up to 60 seconds and watch your skin glow! Feel how beautiful and healed your skin is becoming through your own loving touch.
Step 3. – FACIAL ROLLER
This is an absolute favorite tool in the beauty world as a facial roller holds more benefits than we could even fit in this blog post! Not only does a facial roller boost lymphatic flow which helps to decrease puffiness but it also improves blood circulation and skin tone, reduces puffiness and wrinkles, and helps the body to eliminate toxins! Our Jade Roller is perfect for those looking to improve skin elasticity and tighten pore skin and our Rose Quartz Roller helps to also soothe the tension and stress inside the body that creates imbalances that show up on the skin.
