These days I am paying more attention to the state of my skin. Skin is our largest organ & needs special care & attention to keep it looking youthful. It is also a good place to start looking if there are things going on inside that you might not be too aware of. If there is something bubbling up inside at some point it may show up on the outside. Your skin being so vast is an obvious place. Think rashes, pimples, congestion, lumps & bumps.
For me skin care starts on the inside. Eating a balanced vegetarian diet of mainly plant-based foods is a must. Feeding my skin from the inside out. How many of us have had an over indulgent weekend & by Tuesday our skin looks like crap? Now I’m at that age where wrinkles start to kick in a bit more I feel it’s time to get more serious about the external as well.
Earlier in the year I was very grateful to Haley from Peachy Clean who did an amazing interview all about the benefits of going organic with you beauty products. If you need a refresher click right here.
Here are three products I am using right now & totally love (all organic of course!).
I plough through face wash far too quickly. When I asked Haley for her recommendation on a long lasting wash this was one of the top picks. You only need a tiny amount, literally one squirt, a little goes a long way. In the image below you can see how much is left after five months! It’s nice & gentle, smells amazing and really leaves my skin feeling clean. It has no problems clearing away make up either.
What I love also is that Dew Wash is enriched with crystal essences. As you know I’m a huge fan of crystals and their vibrational benefits for promoting good health. Infused with opal, amethyst, charoite, turquoise, emerald, quartz and chrysporase I feel the face is getting it’s own crystal therapy session. Of course the crystal vibration will then be absorbed further into my bodies too.
This moisturiser is lasting a long time as well. The concentrated formula means one big squirt can cover my whole face. I don’t like heavy, thick, greasy moisturisers and this is none of those. It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin smooth & supple. My powder foundation goes right on top without the need for a primer. I chose the Blue moisturiser as it is recommended for combination skin. Again enriched with crystal essences & 100% natural I feel I can’t get much better than that.
I’ve been a bit rubbish with eye creams over the past few years. No excuse for laziness really as the delicate area is the first to show signs of aging. Then I discovered this amazing product that makes eye application less than two seconds. The handy roll on is less messy than usual oil application techniques. You only need a tiny bit as well making this very economical even at under $15.
I’ve used Rosehip oil for aiding the appearance of scars and it really does work. On fine lines it’s just as good. Beauty oil is so under rated. For someone with oily skin it seems made to put oil on oil, however the oil is only there as my skin gets dehydrated. Oiling up my face actually stops my skin getting it’s own oil going as Rosehip is hydrating & it’s packed full of Omega fatty acids which assist in skin renewal.
