BEAUTY CARE • Cleansers, Toners, Creams, Masks, Oils and more
Did your mother ever tell you never to go to bed without cleansing your face? She was right! Note to self: Call Mom and thank her. Do you really want dirt, oil, makeup, and sunscreen camping out overnight on your face? Bacteria (not the warm and fuzzy kind) will grow in this environment. Facial hygiene is a must, particularly before bed. Experiment with different cleansers until you find one that leaves your skin feeling clean without a dry, stripped sensation. Follow with a pore-refining toner or astringent for stellar results.

Toners, Astringents, and Hydrosols
Toners and astringents are a fabulous ally for glowing skin. Toners provide a gentle way to balance the pH of your skin while distributing botanical benefits, including refining pores. Astringents are a bit stronger and can be especially useful for those who wear makeup and sunscreen. How do you know which type of product you need? Wash your face and then apply a toner or astringent to an organic cotton pad or a hemp round. Gently wipe your face and take a look at the pad. If there’s dirt or makeup on it, note the product that removed the most residue and include it in your beauty routine.
Rosewater with Aloe
Loving-kindness in a bottle…rose balances pH and aloe tames inflammation to gently soothe and refine the skin.

We carry unadulterated, steam-distilled hydrosols that are sustainably sourced and locally made by Aura La Voura. Pure plant medicine applied to the skin is a time-honored way to heal, rejuvenate, and repair it. Whether you are seeking to boost collagen, tame inflammation, do away with breakouts, or plump your skin up, hydrosols and hydrosol blends will become your very good friends. Use them on clean, bare skin (preferably when the pores are open) for optimal therapeutic effect and pH balance; spritz them on to set your makeup; and/or atomize during the day for a healthy hydrating reset.

Facial Creams are essential for delivering nutrients, minimizing wrinkles, locking in moisture, improving the surface appearance of the skin, supporting skin elasticity, and preparing for the smooth application of makeup. Facial creams can be layered with hydrosols and facial oils. Some skin types benefit from rotating different types of creams; in this case, buying small amounts of bulk products can really be an asset.
For best results, wash your hands before dipping your fingers into your cream; our formulas contain many organic ingredients and a minimum of preservatives. Make sure your skin has been thoroughly cleansed before application to ensure that your creams penetrate adequately. It is common to use more facial cream in dry, cold conditions. Living at high altitude can also create the need for extra emollients. Nevertheless, you probably need to apply less than you think: dot the cream evenly on the various areas of the face and neck and then lightly work it in. If your face looks greasy, you’ve used too much. It’s that simple!

Who wouldn’t want to have smooth, silky skin from head to toe? Body Lotions can be used alone or layered with body oils (layering is effective for dry climates, mature skin, chronically dry skin, and sybaritic conditions!). As with all emollients, they work best when applied to warm, moist skin. Do your lotions feel like they don’t quite penetrate? We carry sustainable bath accessories. Try exfoliating with a loofah, bath brush, or konjac sponge when you bathe…your moisturizing efforts will be richly rewarded.

To get the most benefit from oil as an emollient, use it with a hydrosol or a spritz of purified water and/or layer it with creams for extra moisture retention.

Body Oil Blends:

Leave it on for ten minutes and then gently rinse with warm water. Regular use will detoxify, remineralize, and deeply hydrate your skin. Masks also stimulate gentle exfoliation, promoting translucency and improving absorption of all other skin care products.
