Head­ing to the cot­tage doesn’t mean aban­don­ing a beauty rou­tine, but be­ing more at one with na­ture is a must! Choos­ing prod­ucts that are good for your skin and your en­vi­ron­ment will make your cot­tage liv­ing, and you, a lit­tle more beau­ti­ful.

Bare essen­tials for cot­tage beauty.

Like food – we know that chem­i­cal-free and or­ganic beauty buys are bet­ter picks. Nat­u­ral and non-toxic prod­ucts, es­pe­cially soaps, de­ter­gents and sham­poos, are also more sep­tic-friendly, keep­ing both you and your cot­tage healthy.

For a truly re­lax­ing cot­tage ex­pe­ri­ence, let your nat­u­ral beauty shine and sim­plify your regime with help from a few multi-task­ing prod­ucts. A light­weight sheer wash of color is all you need to show off that healthy glow that tells ev­ery­one that sum­mer is here. A tinted mois­tur­izer is per­fect if you want just a lit­tle cov­er­age plus many of­ten do dou­ble duty and in­clude SPF pro­tec­tion. Add a touch of color with a lit­tle cream blush in the ap­ples of your cheeks and a swipe on your nose and fore­head and you’ll have the per­fect sunkissed ef­fect. You can even dab a lit­tle on your lips mixed with your SPF lip balm for just a hint of tint.
