As I type this, it is currently 15 degrees here in Brooklyn, NY which means winter is in full effect. I am dedicated to my skincare routine all year long but that is especially true during these colder months. Thankfully there is no shortage of incredible natural beauty products to give our skin the extra love it needs.
Below are the products I am currently using to keep my skin hydrated, moisturized and glowy all winter long.
DAY MOISTURIZER | Living Libations Best Skin Ever Seabuckthorn: This is a staple in my beauty cabinet all year long — it is incredibly nourishing to the skin and made with the most potent, clean ingredients. Anything by Living Libations is a must-have for me and this is a great product to start with. I am currently using this as my day moisturizer.
EVENING MOISTURIZER | Earthwise Beauty Black Locust Firming Concentrate: I have been testing this product for close to a month and am BLOWN AWAY. I notice a difference in the overall texture, skin tone and health of my skin immediately. It is so worth the investment and a little goes a long way [ and you can use "TheDreamerie" for 15% off! ].
CLEANSER | Earthwise Beauty Marshmallow Face Cleanser: Super gentle foaming face wash, wonderful for all types of skin. Leaves your skin feeling clean, silky and soft.
MASK | 5YINA Bio-Cellulose Mask + Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay: I love alternating between these powerful masks. The sheet mask by 5YINA leaves my skin feeling rejuvenated and deeply hydrated within 30 minutes. The Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay is for deep pore cleansing (SO necessary in NYC!). This product is really powerful and the container will last forever. 5-10 minutes is all you need for an incredibly deep clean.
FACIAL MASSAGE | I have shared my love of facial massage quite a few times on The Dreamerie. The Wildling Empress Stone is now a permanent and favorite part of that daily routine.
TONER | Thayers Witch Hazel: A soothing rose toner that calms and balances the skin.
FACE MIST | Poppy and Someday Gypsy Rose Toner: A few sprays replenishes and restores the skin. Love the floral scent as well to wake-up.
LIP SCRUB | The holy grail of lip exfoliating, before my skincare routine I use this Sara Happ lip scrub every day.
LIP MASK | KNC Collagen Lip Mask: A moisturizing sheet mask for hydrated lips.
DRY BRUSH | A winter must-have for daily exfoliation.
ABYHANGHA | Jiva-Apoha Oils: The most incredible oils, warm up between your hands before applying to the skin.
MOISTURIZE | Sun Potion Shea Butter: I love using this shea butter on its own or mixed with the Jiva-Apoha oil on damp skin for deep hydration.
SPOT HEALING | Egyptian Magic: For dry patches or redness I use Egyptian Magic.
HANDS | Weleda: My go-to hand cream for years.
CIRCULATION | Cold showers: I have been practicing cold showers before my sadhana practice since beginning Kundalini Teacher Training. I have a lot of inflammation in my body right now while on my healing journey so it is more on the cold-lukewarm side but is so powerful for circulation and detoxifying.
