Finding a Routine

As the founder I am asked about my personal facial care routine fairly often. As you all might know, skin health is connected to body health so eat your organic fruits and double down on your organic veggies, fill your water bottles AND consume them, make sure to get outside for fresh air and exercise daily and do your best to create a decompression routine that works for you before bedtime.

A bit about my lifestyle and skin; I am 39 1/2, very active, I pay much attention to what I eat/drink but sure love a G&T. I try to read nightly to decompress but it doesn’t always work. My skin tendency is combination but will become dry with changes to the season. For my skincare ritual, I prefer a twice daily one that feels simple to maintain and is something I look forward to.

Remember consistency is key, this is my routine:

AM
Daily Face Polish
Evening Rose Facial Serum
Carrot & Rose Eye Repair
SPF

PM
Sweet Orange & Rosemary Cleansing Milk
Sweet Orange & Rose Facial Toner
Evening Rose Facial Serum
Carrot & Rose Eye Repair
Lavender Cold Cream (layered on top when it is cold outside)

Weekly on Sundays
Sweet Orange & Rosemary Cleansing Milk
Chamomile & Oats Clay Facial Mask OR Red Clay Facial Mask
Lavender Cold Cream

Keep in mind that routines will look different for everyone and do not need to be lengthy to be effective. As a general rule of thumb we tend to recommend switching the cleanser first to a pH balanced one, then adding in either a basic moisturizer or exfoliant depending on what is missing from the current routine.
