Facial Care Simplified
If you Google “skin care” or “facial care”, you’ll get lots of advice about products, and detailed steps about what to do every morning and every night, and once a week, and twice a month, blah, blah, blah. This can be pretty intimidating and overwhelming if you are unsure of what is really needed.
If you already know what you are doing and have a routine, then good on ya. But if you don’t have a skin care routine, you should. And we’re to help. In keeping with our basic philosophy, we don’t think it should be complicated. Simple is better, and less is more. So our co-founder, Ruth, answered this question:
If you were stranded on a desert island, what are the absolutes for basic facial care? Her answer is good news if you want to begin to take better care of your face – we promise it’s not hard and it won’t take a lot of time or products!
Step 1 : Cleanse
Do this twice a day to keep oil, grim and debris from building up and clogging your pores. You can try our new cleanser – Fresh | for gritty women. It’s highly enriching and smells like luscious cucumber. Mmmmm. Stay tuned for pre-order information.
Step 2 : Moisturize
Twice a day – after cleansing. This will hydrate and protect your skin. Give our new, powerful facial creme, Nourish | for hardy women, a try. It’s chockfull of anti-oxidants, super-hydrating oils, and has a light rose scent – perfect for this time of year. Stay tuned for pre-order information.
Step 3 : Exfoliate
Do this 1-3x per week. Think some type of gentle scrub or even a mask. This will help to keep your skin clear and looking more smooth and even.
Step 4 : Eye Creme
All right – not everyone uses a special product for this. To keep things ultra-simple, you could use your face creme for this delicate area. But all those wrinkles around your eyes and the weathering effects of being outdoors for many hours take a toll. We recommend an eye creme specially formulated for that area of your face. Try our new Balance | for centered women, restorative eye creme. It’s created with hyaluronic acid, blue-green algae, calendula and pomegranate. Plus it has rooibos! Score!

That’s it! Easy peasy. Face care 101. And now you know.
