We all have a daily beauty routine, or should, to make sure we slow down the aging process as much as we can. My routine consists of taking care of everything, from my hair to the tips of my toes. Like most, I like to start my day off with a shower and having the right shampoo and conditioner is vital to my hair and my mood. My scalp is super sensitive and the Calming Shampoo and Calming Conditioner from Zatik has done wonders for me. After one use my scalp felt hydrated and smelling yummy, thanks to the jasmine and wild cherry they’ve been infused with. Once I’m done towel drying my hair I like to rub Pistache Skincare’s Beauty Oil into my hair, from scalp to roots. The combination of pistachio oil and Moroccan rose oil helps my hair stay super soft throughout the day.
After I’ve taken great care of my scalp and hair it’s time to target my face, neck and decolletage. I do not leave the house without applying sunscreen and after finding Sea Goddess Sunscreen Butter I’m even more obsessed with this part of my routine. A mineral based sunscreen made in small batches and perfect for sensitive skin. It’s honestly heaven. Once my sunscreen is in place I take a pump of my Orenda Skincare Illuminating Face Serum and gently apply it to help plump my skin to give me a more youthful glow and eliminate redness. Super hydrated skin keeps the wrinkles away, which is why after my serum I grab my Nayelle HYDRATE Probiotic Moisturizing Day Cream, which contains snow mushroom, 3x more hydrating than hyaluronic acid. It’s also lightweight and goes on perfectly under makeup. One of the most important areas you have to take really good care of are your eyes. I wanted an all around eye cream that combated wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness and this Inlight Under Eye Revive from Hug Your Skin is my little magic cream. It does it all and gives me that bright eyed look, even after only 4-hours of sleep the night before. Then it’s on to my makeup and out of the house to take on my day, but not before packing my OHA Hydrating Mist. I like to spray the mist throughout the day to help keep my skin looking dewy. It not only keeps my skin hydrated but contains ingredients like Green Tea Extract, MSM, and Vanilla Leaf Flower Essence to help me maintain firm and youthful looking skin.
At night when I finally get home it’s time to remove the makeup and dirt from the day so I turn to my Liz Carolina Micellar Water, which contains micelles, tiny molecules that cling on to dirt. My skin feels super clean after without being irritated, which often happens since I have super sensitive skin. It’s so gentle you don’t even have to rinse after but I like to because it prepares my skin for my Jungle Sulphur Cream, a 100% Volcanic Mineral Clay. This incredible cream comes from the volcanic springs in Dominica, the clay is dug from the hot springs every 6-weeks then packed in jars. I like to apply it to my skin right before I settle in for my bath. My skin feels so unbelievably soft after I wash it away! For an even more soothing bath-time solution, I like to add Momotaro Apotheca’s Bath Tonic, which is Jojoba based and helps me maintain overall health and balance. Baths are fun but knowing the tonic is keeping everything clean makes it even more enjoyable and relaxing.
