A New Year, A New Skin Care Routine
While you may already be underway with your new year's resolutions- we thought we should share one that you can start just about anytime, and we definitely think it’s a resolution that will stick :)
Organic skincare has taken our hearts, and our favorite skincare line is Elina Organics out of Kalamazoo, MI (local, what a bonus!). We love this line because it’s award winning, organic, cruelty-free, has vegan options, is free of artificial fragrances and chemicals; soy, dairy, and gluten free. Elina also changes her formulas seasonally to ensure your skin has what it needs. The best part? It actually works.
Why organic skincare? Think about it this way- if active ingredients in medication can be delivered to the bloodstream transdermally... is this any different for skincare and cosmetics? Looking at the harsh chemicals in some skincare products made us take a second look at what we were putting on our face every single day. We found that there was a better option that we could feel good about putting on our own skin.
Elina Organics has great options for all skincare types (find below). The order of when you use these products matters, so we made sure to list them in the order that they should be used-
Herbal Cleanser- healing cleanser for oily to normal to oily skin.
Botanical Cleanser- Calming and rejuvenating cleanser that’s great for dry to normal skin.
Organic face scrub- An extremely gentle yet effective facial scrub to reveal smoother,
