Brightening, Cleansing, and Moisturizing Skincare Favorites
I have never felt more confident than I do now with my skin and with summer in full swing I am finding myself going makeup free more and more.Maybe it’s the lovely humidity of the Midwest, but the thought of putting makeup on just so it can melt right off does not excite me. Thanks to these Beautycounter favorites, my skincare routine is armed with an arsenal of safe beauty products to brighten, cleanse, clear, and moisturize my skin giving me the confidence (and glow) to bask in the glory days of summer, a la makeup free.
Targeted Products to Achieve Skincare Goals
My main goals with my skin have been to clear up blemishes, and have a nice even, glowy skin tone. Adding these power products to my skincare routine have certainly helped me achieve these goals. Beautycounter offers a wide range of safe and targeted products to help achieve any skincare goal. If I am looking to clear up or give my cleanse a detox, I reach for the Balancing + Charcoal Face Mask. If I need some extra hydration and a dewey glow…I moisturize and cleanse with the Cleansing Balm. Whatever my skincare concern at the moment, I feel confident in my Beautycounter favorites.
This power product has earned a well deserved spot at the top of my Beautycounter favorites. Nutrient rich in kaolin clay, this effective yet gentle mask draws out impurities, deep cleans skin and balances, skin. The activated charcoal and salicylic acid help to minimize pores and gently exfoliate. Long story short – this is my go-to for clearing up blemishes or detoxing my skin. I cleared up a crazy bout of hormonal acne along my chin and jaw using this magic mask 2-3 times a week as a spot treatment. After a weekend of overindulging I love to use the Balancing + Charcoal mask on my entire face to give it a proper detox.
If I have a day where I know my skin could use a little extra TLC, I often reach for the Cleansing Balm. This balm from Beautycounter is a luxurious multi-purpose product. You can use the balm to cleanse your face and wash off any makeup or dirt (seriously, you don’t know the feeling of a clean face till you wash with the balm!). All you need is a small almond size tobreak down oils, dirt, and impurities. Bonus! You can even leave this balm on as an overnight mask (which I love to do if I’m feeling my skin is a little dull), use to treat dry spots, or help with eczema.
It may seem counterintuitive to use an oil on your face. Especially because we have been conditioned to associate oil as a negative when it comes to skin. Truth is, the oils your skin naturally produces are actually really good for your skin! Striping your skin of oils can cause dullness, dryness, and even breakouts. I started using facial oil a few years ago when a natural skincare vendor I was working with introduced me to their products, and I’ve never looked back.
This overnight cream certainly lives up to it’s name by helping my skin recover overnight. Your body goes into detox mode overnight, and as a result your skin looses moisture it needs. While your body rests is the perfect time to revive your skin. Using hyaluronic acid, plum oil, and tara gum this overnight mask creates a protective layer over skin to help hydrate and replenish. In summary, you will wake up with softer, smoother, and more vibrant looking skin.
Do you have a favorite product you use when your skin needs a little extra TLC? I have loved working these special treatment products into my skincare routine, and cannot rave enough about the makeup free glow they leave me with.
