5 Minute All-Natural Beauty Routine

May 9, 2018

We are trained to look at the ingredients in our food but do you look at the ingredients in your beauty products? Our skin is the largest organ in our body and everything we put onto our skin is released into the bloodstream, without filter. It’s time that we start talking about what’s inside our beauty products and learning how to de-clutter that beauty cabinet.

We all want to look our best but we are busy people--you know how to maximize your time at work, but what about in your morning beauty routine? Are you choosing the right products? Are you using only the essentials?

I’ve been testing out natural products for years and researched beauty trends from all around the world to find some of the best (and affordable) natural products for your morning routine. Brew the coffee and set your intention for the day because this will only take 5 minutes….

Burt’s Bees Rosewater Toner

Wake up and smell the roses with this natural rosewater toner. Rosewater is known for its astringent properties and is the perfect way to cleanse your skin of all dirt, oil and makeup. Cleansing your skin is an important step that should never be skipped because without cleansing your skin of all the dirt you will just be rubbing it in, girl.

Scentuals Rosehip Oil

Rosehip Oil is one of the greatest products because it is versatile for every skin type. If you have oily skin, rosehip oil will balance out your body’s natural production of oil. If you have dry skin, rosehip oil will moisturize your skin better than any other product you’ve tried. Rosehip oil is a perfect daily moisturizer because it rejuvenates the skin with fatty acids and nutrients, leaving your skin with a beautiful and healthy glow.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturizer

Adding a moisturizer with SPF is the next smart addition to your all natural routine because protection is key. This tinted moisturizer not only contains SPF 30 and vitamin E but it also covers imperfections, redness and uneven skin tone. They have many different shades so you can match it perfectly to your skin color. My favorite thing about this moisturizer is that it is a lightweight cream that will not clog your pores.

Beautycounter Rejuvenating Eye Cream

If you are a lover of natural beauty products then you will love Beautycounter. Their owner, Gregg is passionate about passing laws to regulate the ingredients in beauty products. This eye cream will reduce puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles with the combination of algae and caffeine.

Juice Beauty Mascara

Adding even one coat of mascara to your lashes can elevate your all natural look. I love the Juice Beauty Mascara because it is vegan, cruelty-free and contains phyto-pigments which give a natural look without any clumps. This product will not only volumize your lashes but also give your lashes the nutrients they need to stay healthy.

Each of these steps will take less than one minute, which means that in 5 minutes or less you can accomplish an all-natural look and will be able to save the time for what matters most: maybe it’s your kids, maybe it’s more time in bed. Totally up to you.
