I get a lot of questions about my skincare regimen & what my daily routine is, so I wanted to break it down for you! These are the products I use on any given morning- sometimes it'll be a shortened version if I'm in a hurry, maybe just splashing water on my my face and moisturizing. I realize that all these products may look high maintenance, but I promise the routine goes quickly, and it's definitely worth the effort! I love trying out new things too, so let me know if you have a favorite product for me to try! I've had my Mason Pearson Brush forever- it's great at detangling without breaking or damaging my hair, and it kinda feels like I'm getting a 'lil head massage every time I use it. Throw the Avéne spray and Glossier balm in your bag to keep with you & reapply throughout the day!
I have sensitive skin, so I like to keep my skincare products super clean and minimal in their ingredients. Osmia Organics is a wonderful company that makes a great range of products. This particular set is soothing and full of non-irritating ingredients. The facial soap is made with black Australian clay, Dead Sea mud, organic oils, & coconut milk, and comes with its own soap saver. The gel toner acts as a moisturizing serum with hyaluronic acid & active botanicals. The face cream contains simple, pure ingredients like aloe juice & essential oils.
This is what I like to call the "fresh" section. Pretty self-explanatory- toothpaste and deodorant. I like to keep them more natural when possible (SLS, paraben & fluoride free) so as not to cause any irritation. I love the use of essential oils and lack of antiperspirants in Weleda Sage Deodorant, and Jason Sea Fresh Toothpaste contains blue green algae & both parsley & spearmint extracts to keep you at your freshest.
If I have an extra couple minutes, or feel like quickly pampering myself in the morning, these are my products of choice. Glossier Balm Dotcom has quickly become a favorite, and for good reason. It's a universal salve that can be used on lips, cuticles, or dry skin. I'm dying to try the coconut version. Avéne Thermal Spring Water Spray is a nice way to set everything into the skin, and is also a good refresher throughout the day. I'm currently loving two fragrances by Tom Ford, and switch them up depending on my mood. Violet Blonde has fresh notes of citrus & violet leaf, while Oud Wood is more musty & sexy, with hints of rose wood, cardamom & vetiver.
I try to take these supplements every day to stay as healthy as can be. Oregano oil is one of the most potent natural remedies. It offers intestinal support, supports immune health, and has anti-viral, anti-fungal, & antibiotic properties . Look for one with a high percentage of carvacrol. Dr. Ohira's Probiotics offer a complete probiotic system including prebiotics, enzymes, micronutrients, and organic acids to aid in healthy digestion. They are also shelf-stable and don't require refrigeration due to long-term fermentation, which is an appealing factor to someone like me who is always on the road.
