My skincare routine is constantly evolving, but I thought I’d give you a quick look at what I’m doing to keep myself looking as fresh as possible in 90% humidity.
As a first step, I love to use Weleda’s Cleansing Milk. it is very gentle and super natural way to start off your day. There is no lather (aka no sulfates!) so it takes a bit of getting used to, but does a great job of cleansing.
After taking a shower, I quickly slather on Adara’s Coconut Oil when my skin is still moist. It is so hard to find a good moisturizer these days without any parabens, so I just stick with old fashioned coconut oil. I particularly like this brand because of the natural, subtle scents they add, like peach and green tea, so you don’t just smell like coconut cream pie (which is nice too, but just not my thing).
Before makeup, I quickly swipe on Jurlique’s Herbal Recovery Eye Cream. I love that a lot of their ingredients come from their own farm, ensuring that the products you use are filled with safe, high-quality ingredients.
After a few spritzes of the wonderfully refreshing Pangea Organics Toner, I rub on a couple drops of Argan Oil on my face. Works like a dream – it is effective and has just ONE ingredient. It absorbs quickly and leaves a subtle glow. It feels like there are a million different types on the market right now, but the key is to make sure you are getting high-quality argan oil (doesn’t necessarily need to be Josie Maran, which is great too, but kind of expensive IMO). You want an argan oil that is labeled with the “Ecocert” certification.
And that’s it! I used to use a ton of serums and fancy moisturizers, but for the summer, I generally like to keep things relatively simple so I can just move on and get on with my day. As always, I reserve the right to change my mind, so come wintertime, if I have a 25-step skincare routine, don’t be surprised…
