2016 was full of ups & downs for everyone! So, let's start 2017 off with a BANG and make it your best & healthiest year yet. Our mantra is that healthy skin comes from the inside out... so let's start there!
We have recently written a couple of posts on the optimal foods to eat to have beautiful, radiant skin. One, shared about a month ago called Perfect Skin Goes Beyond Skincare, mentions the best foods to consume from all different food groups - proteins, fruits, veggies, etc. Learn why these foods are ideal to make your skin look and feel like it never has before.
Another post we recently shared is all about the optimal fruits to eat & why. Which ones will aid in anti-aging? Which fruits will give you the vitamins you need to add radiance to your skin? Learn about 8 Superhero Fruits For Your Skin.
Once you are consuming all the necessary nutrients, you will quickly see a difference in your skin. Next, let's look at your skincare routine! Do you know how to classify your skintype? Last week, we published details on the steps you can take to learn which products would be most appropriate for your skin based on how oily or dry it is. Learn Your Skin Type in 4 Easy Steps here.
Now, it's time to try a few new products out for size! We recommend doing the following routine twice a day.
1. Cleanser - In the morning we recommend a cleanser with a light exfoliation & in the evening before bed, an oil based cleanser to ensure the removal of all makeup from the day.
2. Toner - Utilize a couple spritzes of our Lush Balance Toning Mist, formulated to protect the skin from free radicals as well as smooth fine lines & wrinkles.
3. Face Oil - Once you've determined your skin type, there are 2 choices of face oil formulas:
Desert Rescue Face Oil - Perfect for when your skin is more dry and needs a little extra love. This face oil is packed with natural ingredients to seal in moisture with a rapid absorption. Ideal for dry/normal skin.
Neat Remedy Face Oil - Calm inflammations & clarify your complexion without drying your skin! The Neat Remedy Face Oil's ingredients work together to create the perfect, moisturizing balance to your skin.
To apply either face oil, gently massage 2-4 drops into your skin, recently dampened by the toning mist.
4. Eye Serum - The Nutrient Boost Eye Serum has the magical powers of minimizing those pesky dark circles & fine lines while also reducing puffiness around the eyes! Place 1 drop on your finger tip and lightly dab around your eyes.
And VOILA! You are done! Your skin will feel refreshed & nourished like never before. If you'd like to try out our skincare regimen but not commit to the full size products just yet, purchase our travel kit (one for each skintype). Bonus: You also get a travel bag for FREE!
Start 2017 off on the right foot & take great care of yourself! Healthy diet & skincare will lead you to a year of happiness!
