I’ll be real, for the longest time, I was a makeup girl. Skincare always came second for me…until one day, (quite some time ago) I realized that skincare was essential for healthy, beautiful glowing skin. The canvas to express my makeup looks on…it had to be prepped right, and with the best of the best ingredients!
So, with that being said, I wanted to share my top green skincare products! I’ve broken them down into categories, starting with my first routine – cleansing, and then the rest of the products consecutively follow! Keep in mind, these are what I use right now, on a daily/nightly basis and pretty much the ones I couldn’t live without.
Welcome back to the second part of my skincare routine! Today we’re chatting about my Evening Skincare Routine. My end of the day, get-ready-for-bed, winding down skincare regimen is fairly simple…although my husband Davey would probably say it takes forever! Haha, it’s true though, I love to take my time with skincare. Cleansing and massaging and masking…it’s truly my favourite part of the day. If you read my Morning Skincare Routine, then you know all about my skin type, issues and all that fun stuff.
Today’s blog post comes from a place of sheer excitement..mainly because I just love this unique company so much! From their Lip Boosts, to their Serum Foundations – Gressa Skin is paving the way for a more innovative green makeup lifestyle. Quick, healthy, clean, beautiful, and simply put, flawless!
Luxurious, quality-driven, elegant…the list goes on. Just some of the many adjectives that describe this lovely California-based skincare company, True Nature Botanicals rebranded to True Botanicals. A skincare line that not only delivers superior results, but that houses no toxins and makes sure that only the highest quality ingredients are being utilized.
Looking for luxurious, beautifully packaged, quality organic skincare and perfume? Better yet, an inspirational woman to follow and admire? Lina Hansonis your girl! Lina, as a traveling celebrity makeup artist, has worked with people of all skin types and skin issues. The importance of beautiful skin to her is sacred. Achieving that perfect complexion is what we all strive for…but we aren’t going to achieve it by solely buying luxurious creams and procedures to achieve it – the conventional way is filled with dangerous toxins that harm the skin.
So Lina set out to create effective, chemical-free alternatives to harsh skin care products that are made with pure and natural ingredients derived from the earth. These products help promote a glowing complexion for everyone, no matter the age, ethnicity or skin-type. She believes they help your skin get the nutrients it needs to look its best. That being said, it is Lina’s goal to source the most pure, anti-aging essential oils in the world! She’s collected oils from countries like Morocco, South Africa, India, Tunisia, Japanand Peruto discover that these ingredients have been used and cherished by people for centuries. Lina mentioned that it can be puzzling at times to think about why we use toxic beauty products which are mass-produced in big factories…when the ones derived from earth have helped heal people since the beginning of time. I agree, Lina. I agree!
“True beauty comes from within”, a saying we hear quite a bit. It may sound cliché, but I know that personally, I’ve experienced feeling more inwardly beautiful when I make a decision to choose joy and positivity. Of course, there are many ways that inward beauty can be achieved, and it can simply start with mental and emotional health.
I want to chat a bit today about how how nature can increase or decrease feelings and emotions, using flower essences. I have always been a firm believer that naturopathic remedies are our best “medicine”. That being said, I’ve always been intrigued with what flowers can impart in our daily health. A creation so beautifully perfected, from the ground we walk on! Not only are they beautiful to look at, but they can treat us on so many levels!
