Hello, friends! Today I am here to talk about the clean skincare routine that I have been using lately. Clean beauty is becoming more and more important to me now that I am learning about the harmful effects of products with harmful ingredients in them (not just beauty products BTW!).
In case you didn’t know, “clean” beauty means without hidden ingredients that can/are harmful to humans. For instance, when products have “fragrance” listed as one of their ingredients, that usually means harmful chemicals that they don’t want to list as an ingredient because people will stop buying said product. So instead they hide it under “fragrance” because the FDA doesn’t check fragrance. These harmful ingredients can be carcinogens, irritants, endocrine disruptors, etc.
So I have made it a point to limit the products I buy that have “fragrance” in their ingredients list. Young Living is also really helping me ditch-and-switch the harmful products I used to use all the time for non-toxic products now.
So, let’s start with the clean skincare routine products, yea?
Young Living’s Bloom Brightening Cleanser – this product is plant-based and the only “fragrance” comes from the essential oils used to make it. It also has licorice root oil which helps with sunspots and the dreaded “sun mustache”!
Good Molecules Niacinamide Brightening Toner – all natural ingredients AND fragrance free! Plus super affordable too.
Good Molecules Glycolic Exfoliating Toner – another all natural ingredients and fragrance free product. The glycolic acid in the toner is great for collagen growth to make the skin tighter and more youthful.
Young Living Charcoal Mask – plant-based (of course) and it was tested against the leading charcoal mask on the market and THIS one was the favorite! Who knew plants and clean beauty products could be so great?! Jk we all knew that. This mask really helps reduce the size of my pores so I like to use it 2-3 times per week.
Good Molecules Hyaluronic Acid Serum – all-natural ingredients, fragrance free, and great for anti-aging. I apply this to my face, neck, chest, and the backs of my hands!
Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum – all-natural-ingredients, fragrance free, and great for evening out skin tone and discoloration (sun mustache!!).
Young Living’s Nature’s Ultra CBD Beauty Boost – Oh mna, this stuff works wonders. Non-toxic, fragrance free, and does pretty much everything… Anti-aging, evening out skin tone and texture, acne and blemishes, scars, brightening, you name it. I apply this to my face, neck, chest, and the backs of my hands.
Good Molecules Silicone-Free Priming Moisturizer – all-natural ingredients, fragrance free, deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin. Plus it’s the perfect primer before makeup.
I also made my own Glow Serum with essential oils. Lavender to soothe skin (my cheeks are always red and irritated), Frankincense aka the fountain of youth for anti-aging, Blue Tansy (found in a lot of high end $$$ anti-aging skincare products), Ylang Ylang for moisturizing, Patchouli for anti-aging, and mixed with carrier oils jojoba oil and rosehip oil. I’ll do a post on my DIY Glow Serum soon! Get all of these ingredients here!
Here is the exact clean skincare routine that I do:
- Wash face with the Bloom brightening cleanser (either in the morning or at night, not both)
- Apply Young Living charcoal mask 2-3x per week
- Good Molecules Brightening Toner in the morning
- Good Molecules Exfoliating Toner in the evening
- Good Molecules Hyaluronic Acid Serum (morning & night)
- Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum (morning & night)
- YL Nature’s Ultra CBD Beauty boost in the evening
- DIY Glow Serum in the evening
- Good Molecules Priming Moisturizer (morning and evening)
I am really happy with this clean skincare routine that I have curated. My skin feels better than ever and no breakouts due to the toxic “fragrance” ingredients in other products!
