Skincare has always been SO important to me. It affects everything – how I feel, how I look and, of course, my confidence. It’s the first thing people see!!
When the RAW Beauty Talks interview came out – a few of you asked about my skincare routine. Now the secret’s out! This is how I get my au natural, sun kissed glow sans make up. Don’t get me wrong – I ADORE bronzer, but skin that’s flawless without caked on foundation is what we’re all after. Am I right?!
I drink a TON of water. I’ve NEVER liked how flavourless it tastes, so I infuse it with fruit – that way I’m sipping on fruity water throughout my day. It flushes out toxins and affects my skin in a major way. Sleep is also another big one for me. I’m one of those people that need a solid 8-9 hours, otherwise I’m a zombie AND my skin suffers. I’ll let you in on another secret – withinUS TruMarine Collagen powder has worked WONDERS for me.
I never go to bed without a proper face cleanse. Here are some of my all-time fav face and body products that give me that healthy glow!
1. Cleanser | this facial cleanser deep cleans pores and eliminates any build up from makeup. It contains natural oil extracts for silky, smooth skin and it’s fragrance free! I use this stuff morning and night. Can’t live without it.
2. Eye Makeup Remover | the perfect liquid eye makeup remover. Leaves your eyes feeling cool AND it’s not oily. I REALLY dislike eye makeup removers that leave your skin feeling greasy. If you’re the same, give this a try!
3. Toner | this skin brightening, paraben-free toner helps calm and soften the skin. It gives me that “just got a facial” look – every single day! Who wouldn’t want that?
4. Moisturizer | this formula keeps skin in a constant state of renewal – no lie! It’s lightweight and gives me an all-day glow. It’s called “Hope in a Jar” for a reason, people!
5. Blemish Solution | there’s nothing worse than getting a pimple before a big event – or, a date night with Shawn ;-). This stuff works MAGIC! If you’ve got a blemish and need a quick fix – count on this.
6. Eye Cream | when I was on the Bachelorette, I BARELY got my full 8 hours of sleep. I was lucky if I got 4. This eye cream helped brighten and de-puff my eye area – it’s so refreshing.
7. Lip Balm | I just LOVE soft lips. This lip balm gives me a light sheen and has a very subtle mint flavour. It’s so moisturizing. Nothing wrong with having kissable lips!
8. Face Mask | this facemask brightens and perfects – it contains natural-origin pearl to create luminosity. Whenever my skin needs a little love, I use it and find that it improves my complexion almost instantly!
9. Body Sponge | the ultimate sponge that gets you spa-smooth skin! It draws out impurities and leaves the skin feeling delicate and supple. It’s actually made out of bamboo charcoal that helps draw out dirt and oil. I don’t use it every day, but even 1-2 times a week makes a HUGE difference!
10. Body Scrub | if you’re looking for something that has a strong exfoliating effect, this is your best bet! You only need to use this scrub twice a week – it’ll leave your skin amazingly smooth! Promise.
11. Shea Butter | once you give this Shea butter a shot, you’ll be hooked! It contains a lot of moisturizing extracts – linseed, marshmallow, sweet almond, and apricot oil. It hydrates for 24 hours! The best part is, it’s not greasy.
What’s the one skincare product you can’t live without?!
