My New Green Skincare Routine

My New Green Skincare Routine

One of my favorite places to shop for green beauty products is The Organic Bunny. Not only does Amanda, the owner, do a fantastic job vetting products, but she even has an esthetician on staff whom we can email for a custom skincare and makeup routine.

Up until July, Iโ€™d been using mostly 100% Pure products, but I wanted to step up my game a little more and see what a green esthetician would recommend for my skin specifically. I sent her an email along with a few photos of my skin at its worst (the morning after a night of swimming/hot tubbing and not washing my face ๐Ÿ™ˆ).

She gave me a great new routine that Iโ€™ve been using for a few months, mostly consisting of products from the brand Osmia Organics. Truth be told, I probably wouldnโ€™t have picked these products out on my own, so itโ€™s nice to have a professional guiding me in the right direction. Here’s a look at my new routine!

My Green Skincare Routine

AM Routine

  1. I start the day by washing my face using the 100% Pure Konjac Sponge and Aleavia Purifying Organic Facial Cleanser
  2. I pat my face dry and tone with the Fitglow Beauty Sea Toning Mist. I’ll either spray on a cotton pad or spray directly to my face.
  3. When my face is about 90% dry from the toner, I’ll put on the Osmia Organics Balance Facial Serum. This stuff makes my skin SO happy and balanced! Every other day I use a jade roller to work the product in and help decrease puffiness and detoxify my skin.
  4. If I’m wearing makeup, I’ll skip the eye cream because the under eye concealer I use gives me the benefits I need, and it will prevent my eye makeup from smudging; I’ll use my jade roller to combat any eye puffiness. If I’m not wearing makeup I’ll use the 100% Pure Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream. I love this stuff and it smells SO good!
  5. Lastly, I’ll put on the Hynt Beauty Sunprep SPF25. It’s an SPF, moisturizer, and primer all-in-one. It’s also the only SPF moisturizer that doesn’t give me breakouts, so that’s a huge win in my book. And it too smells great!

  1. If I’m wearing makeup I’ll either use Kaia Naturals Face Cleansing Cloths (this is perfect for when I remove my makeup before working out) or the 100% Pure Blood Orange Cleansing Balm. I also like One Love Organics Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil.
  2. Next I’ll either use the Osmia Organics Black Clay Facial Soap to cleanse my face if I’m in the shower. Otherwise, I’ll repeat AM step 1.
  3. I try to exfoliate every other day, and when I do I use the 100% Pure Acai Pulp Facial Scrub. As for masks, I’m working through some of the samples I’ve accumulated, but I intend to splurge on the Kypris Deep Forest Clay Detoxifying Mask next.
  4. Repeat AM steps 2 and 3 minus the jade roller ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  5. For my eyes I’ll put on the 100% Pure Retinol PM Eye Cream
  6. And finally for my moisturizer, I use the Osmia Organics Purely Simple Face Cream. If I have any breakouts that need some extra TLC I’ll treat them with Osmia Organics Spot Treatment. I also keep a bottle of that stuff in my purse to spot treat on-the-go!

The healing has been slow, but it is happening. Diet has played a HUGE roll in my breakouts too. Iโ€™ve noticed by eliminating dairy, gluten, and sugar my breakouts are not what they used to be.
