This is a post I have been thinking about writing for a long time and I am so excited to finally be sharing a few of my all time favorite skin care products. In the past couple of years, I have been even more focused on my skincare routine, working towards keeping a youthful glow (hello 30!)! Now, I finally have my favorite ‘all-natural’ anti-aging skincare routine secrets all in one place for you!
By the way, ‘all- natural’ can mean a whole host of things to a lot of people. In this post, you will find skincare products that have minimal ingredients that are safe for your body and produced with the sustainability in mind!
Before I get started on products, don’t forget that no product will do what an overall healthy diet and lifestyle will! Focus on your internal environment first with hydration, plenty of fruits and vegetables, and exercise!
My basic skincare routine has always focused on products with clean and simple ingredients that are good for my skin, my body, and the environment. If you guys are unaware, there is a huge lack of oversight in the beauty and cosmetic industry, so I love companies that are doing better. In fact, the last law put into action to regulate the safety of the cosmetics industry was passed over 80 years ago. On top of that, only 11 unsafe substances have been banned from being used in cosmetic products. To put that into perspective, Europe has banned 1400.
One great resource for checking in on products that you are using on yourself or loved ones is the Environmental Working Group. The EWG is an awesome resource, publishing a dirty dozen and clean fifteen each year, but they also have a sector of their website called Skin Deep. Skin Deep is a cosmetic database, helping you make the safest choices!
First and foremost, my all time favorite product is any facial oil that uses rosehip oil in it. Rosehip oil has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, obviously amazing for your skin. I use Rosehip oil day and night!
One of my long time favorite oils is Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant Plus! It smells like heaven and makes your skin look so dewey and amazing.
Another favorite is Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil. This one is super popular and definitely for good reason!
Face mists allow your oils to more readily absorb into your face. Plus, they are the perfect pick me up. I love herbal Hydrosouls or complexion mists for their calming effects to my nervous system and awakening effects on my skin! Use a mist with your oil to help it absorb!
I love Evan Healy’s Rose Geranium Hydrosoul (it seriously smells SO good!) or Trilogy’s Hydrating Mist Toner (again, smells like a GD dream!).
Vitamin C Powder
Vitamin C Powder is a newer product in my arsenal and I AM OBSESSED. Vitamin C has amazing anti-aging properties and is so good for your skin. The antioxidants help to protect your skin against free radicals and boosts collagen production. Vitamin C powder is one of the pricier skincare items that I use, but it lasts an extremely long time!
I love The Nue Co or True Botanicals!
Hyaluronic acid is benefits for helping skin retain moisture and boosting collagen production, which are part of its amazing anti-aging benefits.
The retinoid that I use also contains hyaluronic acid, but I like to add a double dose. I am currently using Eminence Organic Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum.
Retinoids are the game changer when it comes to anti-aging, boosting collagen! Retinoid, specifically Tretinoin, is 20X more effective than retinol and has over 50 years of research proving its long-term safety and efficacy. Dear Brightly allows you to get this prescription based retinoid without heading to the dermatologist. It’s all done online! Plus, I love that this company is cruelty, fragrance, and paraben free.
Many people don’t consider retinoids to be an ‘all natural’ skincare item, but Dear Brightly is a clean retinoid that doesn’t contain fillers and is backed by science!
Protecting our skin from the sun’s damaging rays may be the best defense we have against aging. If you are using a retinoid, this is even more important because your skin may become more sensitive to the sun.
I love Suntegrity Skincare because they have an amazing rating on the EWG Skin Deep website and leave my face feeling moisturized, but not sticky. This has been a challenge when searching for an all-natural sunscreen. Oh, and it smells like an orange creamsicle!
I love the primer or tinted sunscreen for day to day. The tinted sunscreen is a very low coverage, but gives a nice dewy look. The impeccable skin has more coverage and a satin finish!
I recently started getting a monthly facial, which has been a game changer. Find someone you trust in your area to cater to your face. I love Gua sha, yin and yang facials, and dermaplaning. If you are in the Denver area I cannot recommend Rhea at Women Folk Beauty enough. She is truly a prized possession for me and my skin health.
Orgasms help balance your hormones and nourish your endocrine system! This has SO many benefits and your skin is definitely one of them. It is extremely important to spend quality time in the pleasure stage in order to receive the benefits, as opposed to going straight for the climax. Important to note sense vibrators sometimes stimulate straight to climax without experiencing the hormone loving and orgasmic pleasure of the arousal period.
I recently ordered this silk pillow. Silk pillows help with wrinkles and prevent dry/static hair! The natural fiber of silk allows skin and hair to glide over gently, creating less friction!
So yeah! This is my current skincare routine and I am absolutely LOVING it! If you have hormonal acne or serious skin concerns, I recommend looking deeper! I am always available for consultations to help you balance your hormones and work on your skin from a holistic and full body approach! If you have any questions, comment below! Always let me know when you try something out, it makes me super happy!
