Detox your skin care regimen and get glowing in time for summer. Spring’s a time for renewal and it’s important to remember our skin care too!
As the weather warms up, ditch the heavy creams and lighten up your skincare regimen with these great non-toxic products recommended by holistic nutritionist and skin specialist Jacyln Irwin.
The Problem Solver by May Lindstrom: This jet-black powder to mousse mask combines antioxidant rich ingredients like raw cacao, bamboo charcoal, nutrients from the soil, salts and warming spices like clove, cinnamon and nutmeg that penetrate the skin and eradicate inflammation. This product is perfect for the spring as the charcoal detoxifies the skin and helps heal blemishes and acne which are more prone to pop up during spring and summer as the skin is oilier.
Face SPF 20 Rose Essence Tinted Moisturizer by Coola: Of course as we head into nicer weather it is important to protect our skin if we are going to be outside for lengthy periods of time. This lightweight tinted moisturizer includes acai oil which provides a powerful defense against aging. This is a perfect alternative to heavy creams, concealers and foundation and yet still provides a fair bit of coverage to keep that glowing skin looking dewy and fresh.
Acai Rose Facial Serum Concentrate by Odacite: Want to have a gorgeous looking glow all while helping address aging skin issues such as tone, texture, elasticity, wrinkles and firmness? Of course you do! This serum uses acai berries that have been carefully harvested and cold pressed and rose oil which helps to repair broken capillaries and improve circulation. To ensure that your serums reach the deepest layers of the skin, always apply to damp skin and then just sit back and watch that glow.
Organic Cleansing Sponge by One Love Organics (Bamboo Charcoal Heart): These sponges are made with 100% pure konjac plant fiber and are known for their ability to detoxify pores and smooth skin. Apply your cleanser to the sponge and watch how it buffs away dirt and makeup and leaves your skin looking fresh and clean. A perfect way to give yourself a mini exfoliation daily.
