When it comes to self-care and clean beauty, it doesn't necessarily mean it has to be all that complicated or expensive. If you adapt a quality self-care routine and use natural, clean products, you can actual save time and money instead of trying to undo all the harm of our younger, more naïve years. Here are three self-care items you should always have on hand.
Vitamin C Serum. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that stimulates collagen, brightens your complexion, and protects your skin from environmental stressors. Try The Ordinary (bottles range from around $7-$10) or if you have the means to do so, Dr. Barbara Sturm's The Good C Vitamin Serum ($125) which you can find here.
A deep moisturizing hair product. This is essential when it comes to curly haired girls who literally need to hydrate the hair in order to prevent future breakage. Having a curling cream without any harsh ingredients aids in defining your curls and adding overall manageability. Try our Cosmopolitan Curl Whip which is rich in organic coconut oil and free of Sulfates and Parabens, resulting in soft, defined and shiny curls without leaving residue or weighed down locks.
A cleansing body exfoliator. Most of us take really good care of our face and our hair. And why shouldn't we? I mean, it is the first thing people see after all. But what about our bodies? A good body exfoliating scrub not only helps your skin look smoother, but more youthful. A regular body scrub is great for the overall health and appearance of your skin, but it also helps in preventing ingrown hairs, minimize the appearance of large pores, smooth out razor bumps, and can even act as a means to managing stress. Try Necessaire's The Body Exfoliator which is a weekly multi-exfoliation treatment for the skin. We love this clean product and that it’s free of all sulfates—SLS + SLES, Parabens, Formaldehydes, and other Formaldehyde-releasing agents.
