Seven-Step Routine for Glowing Skin

 

Inspired by the ever-growing Korean Beauty 10-Step Skincare Routine, we have created a mini-version of this ritual that leaves your skin absolutely flawless. Korean skin-care routines have been taking the beauty world by storm as they truly do possess some of the most beautiful skin on the planet.  As we’ve talked about before, self-care is truly self-love, so the ritual of putting time and energy into taking care of their skin, well, it’s no wonder their skin absolutely glows. Our skin reflects what’s going on inside: physically as well as emotionally. 

 

CLEANSE - First, while taking a nice, warm shower, cleanse skin with one of our gentle cleansing bars. For those with oily/acne prone, try our Bamboo Charcoal Soap. For dry/sensitive skin, give our Pink Clay Soap a whirl. For those with normal/combo skin, our Blue Clay Soap is a perfect fit. 

 

TONE - Next, using a facial toner / mist helps remove any possible residual left from soap while cleansing, as well as hydrate skin so that it can soak up the ingredients from facial oils + serums (next step). Not only does it help to moisturize and prep skin, but facial mists/toners are filled with nutrients that help heal the skin. Our Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist  is infused with nourishing coconut water, youth-boosting hibiscus flower petals and moisture-enhancing rose to tone, hydrate, and soften all skin types. If you're looking for an antioxidant boost that also helps to reduce blemishes, our Jasmine Green Tea Balancing Toner is infused with Jasmine Water, oil - reducing antioxidant rich Green Tea, blemish fighting White Willow Bark, soothing Aloe Vera and toning Witch Hazel. Spray a few 

 

ESSENCE/SERUM - An essence/serum is essential when it comes to beautiful skin. With a blend of gently, all-natural fruit acids that help do everything from exfoliate the top layer of dead skin to help reduce breakouts, an essence will help keep skin conditions at bay so that your skin can really begin to heal. Our Prism Exfoliating Glow Potion will help to heal, clarify, and gently exfoliate so that your skin can truly glow. Prism is both an essence and a serum all in one. It's an essence in that it's lightweight and hydrating with a vegan form of sodium hyaluronate. As a serum, it's a powerful, natural blend of different plant-based acids, such as Glycolic to skin-cell turnover/exfoliation, Lactic to reduce breakouts, Citric to brighten, Salicylic which helps heal blemishes, and Malic to help fade dark spots. It's rich in Vitamin C from Kakadu Plum, which helps the complexion to become radiant and glow. Vitamin C is an essential Vitamin for gorgeous skin! 

 

MOISTURIZE:  Hydrated skin is what gives your complexion that absolutely dewy, healthy glow. Most skin conditions arise when skin is overdried, overwashed, and overtreated with toxic chemical products. For day time, our Pink Cloud Rosewater Moisture Creme plumps and smooths skin leaving it with a glowing + slightly dewy finish. Rosewater, Aloe Water, and White Tea Extract, all help to moisturize deeply and soothe redness + inflammation. For evenings, give your skin a dose of rich hydration with our Moon Fruit Super Fruit Night Treatment. It feeds skin with superfruits, gently resurfaces with fruit enzymes and hydrates deeply with a blend of exotic butters and bio-identical vegan Hyaluronic Acid all while you sleep.

 

FACIAL OIL - After applying Pink Cloud Creme in morning and also can be done after applying Moon Fruit at night, using a facial oil helps to further lock in all the moisture and help your skin soak up the benefits. To help heal blemishes and soothe inflammation + redness, our Lapis Facial Oil does just the trick. For those looking for skin-cell regeneration, our Phoenix Facial Oil rejuvenates the skin at a cellular level. If you need an extra balancing hydration boost, our Orchid Facial Oil feeds the skin with essential fatty acids and moisture-boosting nutrients. 

 

SUNSCREEN -  As always, it's important to protect the skin from prolonged sun and UV exposure, especially when using products that contain exfoliants like our Prism Exfoliating Glow Potion. Try one of our favorite all-natural SPF  that not only protect your skin but heal it with skin-soothing ingredients that will make your skin glow. 

 

MASK: While the first of our steps were daily, don't skip out on your weekly mask! Try our Brighten Pineapple + Gemstone Mask to illuminates and energizes skin by exfoliating gently for a fresh new glow or our Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask helps to decongest pores and reduce inflammation, redness, and blemishes. (As always, start out slow with resurfacing products - try a small amount on your skin to see how it reacts. Slow and steady brings out the beautiful complexion!)
