You eat organic food, avoid toxins, take top of the line supplements BUT what is your skin care routine like?
Going green is everywhere, but it’s not always the first thing we think of when it comes to our beauty routines.
Here a few simple tips you can incorporate to take your pampering process to a greener level.
Gentle Cleanser, Refreshing Toner, Light Moisturizer, Satin Face Scrub and Love Your Face all serve as the foundation of my daily skin care regimen. Let’s take a closer look at some of my FAVORITE products:
Cleansing twice daily is the first step to healthier-looking skin. Offering the same essential oil benefits as its predecessor, our new Gentle Cleanser uses additional plant-based ingredients to gently and effectively remove pore-clogging impurities from the skin.
I recommend using ART Gentle Cleanser morning and night or after any heavy sweating. Use lukewarm water and lather a nickel-sized amount of cleanser with your hands before massaging it onto the face. Rinse and then pat dry. The mild foaming action leaves your face feeling clean, soft and supple without stripping it of it’s natural oils.
ART Refreshing Toner
Applying toner is an oft-skipped step, but if you want maximum benefits from your skin care regimen, don’t leave it out! Providing essential oils in a light, easily-absorbing formula, ART Refreshing Toner smoothes and balances the skin after cleansing, diminishes the appearance of pores and removes residual particles left behind after cleansing. To apply, dampen a cotton ball with toner and gently swipe across clean, dry skin.
ART Light Moisturizer
A good moisturizer forms a hydrating barrier on the skin to lock moisture and other beneficial ingredients into the skin and protect it from environmental attacks. The ART Light Moisturizer combines the best features of the former Day Activator and Night Reconstructor into one advanced, essential oil-infused formula. With active botanicals that work with all skin types to help retain and maintain proper hydration, ART Light Moisturizer also reduces the visible signs of aging, evens skin tone and improves skin elasticity. Massaged into the face morning and evening after applying toner, this moisturizer leaves the complexion refreshed, renewed and radiant.
Did you know that one of the amazing ingredients in the cleanser, toner and the lotion is ORCHID FLOWER and KNOTWEED?
The benefits of both of these products and specifically the use of the orchid flower, are based on thousands of years of Chinese herbal medicine. It is believed that orchids have the ability to absorb and retain moisture and adapt well to many extreme environments. The longevity of the flowers is the key benefit that is utilized for skin care.
Orchid extracts are used for their intense moisturizing effect and for their ability to help delay senescence—or natural aging—by supporting the strength of the skin’s main proteins.
Another valuable ingredient found in our A∙R∙T orchid line is Japanese knotweed—a polygonum that has been traditionally used for its wound healing properties and for its ability to support healthy skin and provide protection against the effects of free radicals. The Japanese use this plant in order to prepare a tea called Itadori, a word that means well-being. This and many other properties that may help generate youthful-feeling and -looking skin are found in the A∙R∙T orchid.
Satin Facial Scrub
This stuff is just out of this world! Forget the Lancome and come try this. I love that it creates a light leather while the tiny gentle scrubbies leave my skin so smooth.
It is a water-based exfoliant. It contains jojoba oil, mango butter, MSM, aloe and Peppermint essential oil to minimize the appearance of pores and invigorate dull skin.
Love Your Face (made by me)
It is a face serum that my husband I use DAILY. It is a homemade serum made with infused Rose petals in Sunflower oil, Frankincense, Myrrh, Clary Sage and Patchouli. Once in a while I’d add some more skin friendly oils to help balance my skin. I also sell it in my Etsy shop – Country Chicks Boutique.
You’re welcome to stop by and experience the serum for yourself!
These products are the perfect gift to yourself, your mother, girlfriend or soon-to-be bride.
