By: Guest: Elise Miller ~
As we enter into the new year, now is a wonderful time to start healthy skincare habits that will have your beloved skin glowing, moisturized and pure. Using products that are formulated with high quality and natural ingredients are key to experiencing healthier looking skin. Here’s your simple guide with three habits and multiple natural skincare product ideas to take into the new year to give your skin some extra care. Love the skin you’re in!
Cleanse Morning and Night
Cleansing your skin both morning and night from the impurities that naturally occur on the skin is a wonderful way to keep it pure and fresh. For a gel cleanser, try Bodyceuticals Calendula + Flower Essences Cleanserby gently washing your face and neck with water. If you prefer an exfoliating cleanser, use Bodyceuticals Charcoal + Bamboo Facial Cleanser by applying to skin; you can also use an exfoliating mitt for added exfoliation. For an oil based cleanser, mix Bodyceuticals Calendula Bioactive Salvewith a bit of warm water and cleanse with a washcloth. Who doesn’t love a fresh face!?
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
The winter air and all those hot showers you may be taking can dry out your skin which is why moisturizing is incredibly important, not just during the cold months but also in every season. Apply facial créme to face and neck morning, night, and as needed during the day to properly hydrate the skin. For normal, dry and sensitive skin, use Bodyceuticals Calendula + DMAE Crémeformulated with DMAE, hyaluronic acid, calendula and rose petals to help restore, eplump and nourish the skin. If you love this DMAE créme, try Bodyceuticals Neroli + Calendula Firming Créme for a pure and fresh moisturizer that will plump and tone the skin. For normal, T zone, and combination skin types, use Bodyceuticals and Antioxidants Facial Créme. This one is formulated with cranberry, aloe, blueberry, neem and Vitamin C; this créme will help balance and purify the skin. In addition, this one is often a great fit for teenagers. For normal skin with age spots, sun spots or mild discoloration, Bodyceuticals Calendula + Vitamin C Créme is a great choice to help aid uneven skin tone and texture while firming and plumping the facial tissue.
Lock in moisture with a high quality oil and your skin will thank you. Oil is the key to that beloved glow! A winter favorite is the luxe and lightweight Bodyceuticals Vanilla + Avocado Oil that smells like holiday cookies and absorbs into the skin for nourishment and hydration. For a wonderful morning and night combo to add to your skincare routine, use Bodyceuticals Berry Beauty Drops Duothat will boost your skin’s glow and leave the skin feeling silky soft by nourishing and restoring the skin through the power of blackberries and raspberries. For the ultimate skin treatment for whole body care, use Bodyceuticals Organic Calendula Oil. Calendula Oil is filled with nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants that will gently moisturize and soothe the skin.
Cheers to glowing skin in the new year!
Which Facial Creme is Right For You?
By: Guest: Elise Miller ~
Moisturizing the face is an important key step in the skincare routine and is vital for healthy and nourished skin. Choosing a facial crème suited for your skin type will keep your face hydrated, young, protected, smooth and clear while also diminishing the appearance of fine lines and blemishes. Choosing the right crème for you with a clean and pure formula for your skin is incredibly important. These three vegan, small batch facial crèmes from the Pacific Northwest are created with all different skin types in mind and are formulated with high quality, natural ingredients that you can trust to put on your precious skin. Whether you have dry, mature, oily, combination, or normal skin, these crèmes will keep your skin fresh, pure and glowing. The best way to moisturize your skin is to apply crème to your face and neck after cleansing and toning, both morning and night, especially after a shower or bath as water can take away much of your skin’s moisturize. Learn which of these three wonderful facial crèmes is best for you and get to moisturizing!
Calendula + Antioxidants Facial Crème
The Bodyceuticals Calendula + Antioxidants Facial Crème is best for those with normal to combination skin. This means that the skin is a combination of both dry and/or normal in some areas while being oily in other areas. The oily spots often include the T-zone: nose, forehead, and chin. This lightweight and refreshing crème is based with aloe juice and boasts a brilliant and heavenly smell of berries and citrus from fresh cranberries, raspberries, blueberries, orange peel, lemon, lime, and pink grapefruit. It’s safe for all ages, including teenagers and it will not clog facial pores. This botanical antioxidant crème will help balance your skin to keep it looking fresh, healthy, and pure.
Calendula + DMAE Facial Crème
The Bodyceuticals Calendula + DMAE Facial Crème works its magic best on those with normal, mature, sensitive, and dry skin. This type of skin needs all the moisture it can get and this crème delivers. A customer favorite, this thick crème built with hyaluronic acid and rooibos works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while softening the skin. This crème is also excellent for the eye area and will keep your skin ultra-nourished. The high concentration of fresh calendula in this facial crème will repair, build collagen, and rejuvenate elastin. Your face will be looking extra radiant with this gentle moisturizer.
Calendula + Vitamin C Facial Crème
The Bodyceuticals Calendula + Vitamin C Facial Crème works wonders for most skin types, especially those dealing with age spots, sunspots, mild discoloration, and uneven tone and texture. This crème gently exfoliates while clearing up the skin using pure ingredients such as Vitamin C, aloe, green clay, Alpha Hydroxy acids, coconut oil and rosehip oil. You can also use this one interchangeably with the Calendula + DMAE Facial Crème as they both work to repair skin. This silky crème feels fresh and soothing on the skin while firming and plumping the tissue.
