Skincare Routine

I have always struggled with sensitive skin and have been on the lookout for that perfect skincare routine that compliments my skin type. Over the years I became influenced by friends' opinions and fell into the trap of keeping up with the new skincare trends. I had to learn the hard way that chemical peels made my skin more irritated than did any good and those harsh chemical products made my skin very sensitive to the sun. One day I decided to educate myself and try natural products to see if they provided the results I needed to see in my skin. I learned that the simpler the skincare routine the better and that you do not need a 20 step process every day,  I needed simple plant-based ingredients that would give me glowing skin.  I also needed an easy skincare routine as a form of pampering and self-care that fit into my busy lifestyle.

A good skincare routine is a personalized checklist to help with the skin condition you struggle with, whether you have dry, oily or combination skin you need to source products that suit your skin and the activities you engage in as well as the climate you live in.  I have learned that beautiful skin requires commitment and the result of using proper skin care and treatments means you can feel confident and let your glowing skin shine through.

The Skincare Checklist:

  • Step 1: Precleanse
    This helps remove makeup, sunscreen, and dirt/oil on the skin's surface. 
  • Step 2: Exfoliation Cleanse
    Exfoliates dead skin and maintain PH
  • Step 3: Moisturize with Serums
    Replenishes skin with plant essences
  • Step 4: Moisturize
    Helps protect the barrier of the skin
  • Step 5: Sunscreen
    Must be last on your skin to be used as a barrier and protect the skin from harmful effects of the sun. 
  • Step 6: Weekly Masks
    Purifies and nourishes and encourages cell turnover


Through many years of trial and error, I have finally found a skincare routine that is beneficial for my skin type. By understanding your skin type, educating yourself about the ingredients in your products, and staying away from harmful chemical products, you will be able to find the products that complement you. Do not blindly fall into the traps of following the latest trends on social media or what your favourite influencer uses.

My skin is more balanced, youthful, and feels like it should, thanks to using an oil-based cleanser, serum, and introducing vitamin C as well as a weekly mask.  Switch to natural and see the incredible results for yourself.

Skin Care FAQ's

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the outer layers of the skin.  It increases blood circulation and improves the skin’s appearance to make way for a softer, smoother complexion.  It also allows for fuller absorption of the skincare serums you are using.

An effective routine can help prevent acne, treat wrinkles and keep your skin bright.  Keeping it simple allows you to stay on track with your products, over complicating your routine can harm the natural oils in your skin and sometimes make whatever skin problem you are suffering from doing more damage than yielding better for your sin type.

Serums are more concentrated than regular moisturizers and absorb easier into the skin.  Serums also allow you to target your skin’s specific needs and deliver benefits helping you achieve the glow you're looking for and locking in moisturizer.
