Hi everyone! I haven’t posted about my updated skincare routine in a while so wanted to share what I’ve been using for the summer because I have some real beach hippie vibes products I need to share with you!
I keep my skincare routine pretty minimal and simple. As long as the products I’m using are delivering the best and can be used for morning and night, I’m happy! Right now my skincare routine is kept very simple with about 5 products I use for everyday but each are definitely multitaskers, giving you the most out of one product which is always ideal. All these products mentioned below are from mindful beauty companies that take pride in providing all around natural, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free products for consumers. Although I do find that it very complicated to identify what exactly is “natural” in today’s generation in the beauty world with so many perspectives, studies, and debates out there, I try my best to find the brands that are sincere and committed to producing safe skincare for us and the world through consideration of ingredients and formulations of their products. I’ve been sharing my story on transitioning to natural beauty products here on my blog so this is what I’ve been using (& loving!!) for this summer:
Morning Routine ☼
In the morning I start off using a Hazelnut sized amount of my OSEA Malibu’s Ocean Cleanser which is a daily seaweed cleansing gel. This cleanser has a light beautiful smell like the ocean. Removing excess dirt and oil through it’s natural formulation with Vegan Lactic Acid (derived from beets) and star ingredients such as organic seaweed and Jojobo seed oil (one of my favs) to maintain a healthy hydrated look. A great pick me upper in the morning leaving my face feeling like a fresh faced beach goddess after my morning cleanse!
Next I follow up with OSEA’s Vitamin Sea Serum to restore my skin, retain moisture, and for a glowing youthful complexion. Vitamin C is definitely a plus to add to your skincare routine for collagen production and overall powerhouse antioxidant for brightening of skin. I love this Vitamin Sea Serum which my skin absorbs like it’s water! I use this as my first layer of product (serum always first) which I then follow up with either my Every Morning SPF 25 or Simply Zinc SPF 30 Sun Whip depending what I’m doing the day of. Sunscreen is your #1 tool to protecting your skin from aging, wrinkles, and skin cancer. All ages, I will always recommend using this daily! You’ll thank me later 😉
If I’m staying mainly indoors for the day I use the Every Morning and days I’m generally outside or on vacation I bump it to the SPF 30. Both Sun Whips are a two in one moisturizer and sunscreen which saves you an extra step. But if you do find that your skin is more on the dry side, I would recommend to use the H2O Hydration from CyberDERM first after the Vitamin Sea Serum then the last step would be the sunscreen.
Night Routine ☽
My night routine is quite similar to my morning routine because as mentioned, these products I’ve been using are great for both morning and night time. After my day, I would cleanse again with the OSEA Malibu Ocean Cleanser, then again with my second application of the Vitamin Sea Serum. Then the next steps are a little different, I would use the H2O Hydration Moisturizer from CyberDERM. I have been using this light weight moisturizer for a year now and it is one of my favourites. Formulated with olive oil that gives your skin a soothing hydrating hug. If your looking for a moisturizer more concentration on a certain aspect your looking to improve on your skin such aa anti-aging or hyperpigmentation or brightening, I would suggest using a product that is more specific to targeting those areas with ingredients to help achieve what you need for your skin. Both OSEA and CyberDERM have great products that has a variety of products to choose from. Next I follow up with a oil for the dry patches on my face for extra moisture where needs be which tends to be my cheeks and jawline. I use Pelle Beauty’s Balance Facial Oil or any type of natural oil like Coconut oil!
And that’s a wrap! That’s my beachy boho skincare routine for the summer including some amazing brands for skincare that also works in harmony with the earth. All links to each product is included in this post, feel free to share any skincare products and brands you’ve been loving this summer 🙂 Have a good day.
