I don’t know if you are anything like me but in my younger years I took absolutely no care of my skin. 

I was so careless and I am paying for that now. I know I caused so much damage underneath that is not visible to the eye and sadly every time I look in the mirror I am haunted by the damage I can see. My nose tells that story day after day. I don’t feel confident to leave the house without makeup because my nose is so red it’s embarrassing.

On top of that I never really used any type of day or night moisturizer and the makeup I did use was full of toxic ingredients.

No wonder my skin was so unhappy

I look back and I am saddened by my lack of awareness but I’m thankful I now know better. I share with you because I am grateful that my eyes were opened and I now know how important prevention and protection is.

I also know why it’s important to choose safe products and reduce body burden every single day. 

So maybe you wear makeup daily or maybe not? I’m a wear makeup a few times a month because I go nowhere and stay at home kinda mom!

One thing I do daily is take care of my skin!

It is very important to choose clean products for your routine because what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream in 26 seconds. Toxins have no place here and by choosing clean products you are reducing your exposure and kicking toxic body burdens butt!

After all that is the base of it all. If your skincare is lacking the application of your makeup will too.

For a clean skincare routine, it’s all about nourishing, restoring and protecting.

Here are my top choices for my routine and I’ll tell you why!

First off I am all about these awesome badges: ᴛᴏxɪɴ ғʀᴇᴇ, ᴄᴏɴsᴄɪᴏᴜsʟʏ ᴘᴀᴄᴋᴀɢᴇᴅ, ᴠᴇɢᴀɴ, ʟᴇᴀᴘɪɴɢ ʙᴜɴɴʏ ᴄᴇʀᴛɪғɪᴇᴅ ᴄʀᴜᴇʟᴛʏ ғʀᴇᴇ, ɴᴏɴ-ɢᴍᴏ, ɢʟᴜᴛᴇɴ ғʀᴇᴇ, ᴍᴀᴅᴇ ɪɴ ᴛʜᴇ ᴜsᴀ

Now let me break it down into steps for you!

Step 1: C L E A N S E and R E P L E N I S H

This is so important whether you are a woman, man or even a teenager everyone should find a good facial wash. 

Check this post out to know what ingredients to watch out for.

I love these bars for so many reasons. 

Clean ingredients, they moisturize AND cleanse without the dryness, or irritation,zero waste and they last forever.

There are two different bars to choose from and I personally alternate them but let me show you a breakdown.

🧼 Charcoal Facial Bar

STEP 2: B A L A N C E 

I’m sure you have used or at least heard of a toner by now. Most toners remove impurities, but can also be harsh and drying on the skin. 

Now let me introduce you to Clarilight Facial Essence…it gently removes those impurities and deposits nutritive ingredients back into the skin. It is essentially a mix between a toner and a serum and it is something I never knew I needed. I will tell you right now before using this product I had never used any sort of toner or essence and now I am absolutely hooked and I have to say it is one of my top favorites! 

STEP 3: P R O T E C T

Protecting our skin from damaging rays is so very important and it is actually the number 1 thing we can do to fight aging 365 days a year. My favorite facial spf is Sunlight. It goes on great, is lightweight, reef safe, 100% non nano, not greasy or ghostly and layers perfectly under cosmetics.

Step 4 Daytime: H Y D R A T E 

I love this lightweight hydration, this is called Daylight! It smells so good, it softens, moisturizes and I love that it is packed with antioxidants to help protect from environmental stressors!

Step 5 Nighttime: R E S T O R E

🥰 We can all use a little extra while we sleep right?! After-all, that is when our skin does most of its healing! It works all night to rejuvenate your skin, it also helps reduce the appearance of dull skin and protect against daily environmental stressors and it even worked wonders on my son’s eczema. I also love the scent!

Step 6: T I G H T E N

I’m so in love with Powerlight! This peptide packed eye cream goes to work instantly!  I love it because it’s lightweight and absorbs easily. Not only does it reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but I’ve also noticed it has also minimized my under eye circle and discoloration. 

And that’s it!! Be proactive, my friends. Your future self will thank you.

You can find all my favorite products here.

Don’t live in regret like me.

These days I am one busy Mama to say the least. So thankful I have a skincare routine that is short, sweet, toxin free and super nourishing to my skin!!

And that’s it! Hopefully that is helpful! As always, let me know if I can help you detox your skincare routine and make specific recommendations!
