New Year – New You: Highly Effective Organic Skincare Alternatives to Your Current Products

Every year millions of New Year’s resolutions are made to make better choices that will lead to living happier and healthier lifestyles. Many of us challenge ourselves to improve our diets, exercise on a more regular basis, or learn a new skill – yet we often do not keep up with our (as time has shown year after year) seemingly lofty goals. The key to meeting our resolutions is no secret – follow-through indeed is everything.

Regardless of what your goals for 2017 are, there is no time like the present to embrace an excellent skincare routine. As many of my readers know, I am a huge proponent for organic skincare simply for the fact that many of the common irritants and preservatives found in conventional skincare is left out – leaving only high quality ingredients to nourish and revitalize the skin. Irrespective of the organic component, beautiful skin and preserving your youth is a 3-step process. In addition to embracing a healthy lifestyle and making routine visits to your dermatologist for in-office youth-enhancing treatments, having a structured and quality skincare regimen is critical. Over the past year, I have tested numerous high quality organic oils, serums, and “potions” of sorts – for those looking to make the switch as well as preexisting organic skincare lovers, the following have made my list as 2017’s organic skincare essentials: 


1)   Adore Cosmetics – Golden Touch 24K Techno-Dermis Eye Mask: Engineered with pure gold and highly effective age-defying organic plant stem cells, this ultra luxurious box comes with 12 pairs of under eye masks (a 1-year supply) that will leave you feeling revitalized and refreshed. Over time, these eye masks stimulate skin luminosity and the restoration of a more youthful appearance. Golden Touch 24K Techno-Dermis Eye Masks have a soothing lavender aroma – making them perfect for an at-home spa day (and even more perfect for a luxurious spa day party with your friends!).

 2)   100% Pure – Organic Rose Water Sensitive Skin Calming Serum: Packed with anti-aging power ingredients such as CoQ10, red wine resveratrol, and Alpha-Lipoic Acid, this serum does far more than simply calming the skin. Calendula, chamomile, and rose hydrosol calm the skin while organic seaweed extract and hyaluronic acid hydrates and plumps. In addition to individuals with sensitive skin, this serum is an exceptionally effective skin soother after enduring a chemical peel or light microdermabrasion treatment. For an even deeper hydration, apply this serum followed by 1-2 pumps of Organic Rose Water Sensitive Skin Nourishing Moisturizer.

 3)   LXMI – Crème Du Nil: Originating from the Nile River, this luxuriously light, fast-absorbing, and pore-refining moisturizer is crafted using the highest quality rare organic ingredients. Crème Du Nil works great as a primer prior to applying makeup – especially for individuals with normal to dry skin that need of an extra boost of hydration. All of LXMI’s products are ethically sourced and handmade in Uganda by women who receive triple the amount of the average regional wage – making Crème Du Nil not only a quality purchase, but also an ethical one.

 4)   Vapour Beauty – Recue Advanced Solution For Hands: Over my many years of working in the beauty industry and doing extensive product reviews, Recue Advanced Solution For Hands is my all-time favorite skincare in regard to hand rejuvenation. With long-term daily use, this product brightens the hands while fading away superficial sun spots, age spots, and wrinkles. In addition to a rare blend of organic ingredients (such as prickly pear and reishi mushroom extract), this solution also utilizes the clinically proven peptide complex, Dermaxyl – an anti-aging wrinkle smoothing ingredient that stimulates cell communication and repairs age-related skin damage.

5)   Mahogany Naturals – The Blue Lover Skin Balm: This luxuriously smooth multi-use organic blue balm deserves so much more attention. Not only does it work exceptionally well at hydrating and soothing dry and irritated skin (almost instantly!), but also is perfect for use on sensitive skin. Formulated with organic evening primrose, blue tansy, lavender, and geranium rose oil, this aromatic balm is both calming and almost spa-like to the senses. This product is especially great to use on the face and hands during the dry and cold winter months.

6)   Jane Iredale – POMMIST Hydration Spray: This product has become a makeup and skincare staple of mine. In addition to setting power makeup, this antioxidant-packed ECOCERT awarded mist boosts the performance of SPF, provides ultimate hydration, calms inflammation, and smells heavenly. POMMIST Hydration Spray is cruelty-free and formulated without the use of artificial fragrances and preservatives.

7)   Nature & Cosmétique – Calendula Day Cream: This lightweight all-natural French day cream is an essential to use during the winter months – especially for those with normal to oily skin.

For even deeper hydration, this product can applied in the morning after massaging 3-6 pumps of Huile de Soin Anti-aging face oil.
