Or­ganic com­po­nents in prod­ucts are na­ture’s way of gift­ing hu­mans with beauty in a bot­tle. These in­gre­di­ents are of the same min­er­als, like amino acids and en­zymes, as those in our bod­ies. The skin syn­the­sizes these prod­ucts to re­new dam­aged cells and to con­vert them into ad­dional vi­ta­mins. If you’re un­sure of what to try, start with nat­u­ral, plant-derived ex­tracts. These match your skin com­po­si­tion and would pre­vent you from need­ing chem­i­cal cures. They tend to be kinder to your skin and re­store its nat­u­ral state, elim­i­nat­ing the need for you to ex­per­i­ment with and change prod­ucts of­ten.

Take, for in­stance, the Al­genist Ge­nius Ul­ti­mate Anti-Ag­ing Vi­ta­min C+ Serum which con­tains al­gae oil and is wa­ter-based for a gen­tle treat­ment. It im­proves the skin’s smooth­ness and firm­ness with­out cre­at­ing the dam­age usu­ally done by chem­i­cals. For the next day’s makeup, prep your skin with Jane Iredale Beauty Prep Toner to make your makeup last longer. Take Jane Iredale’s Hy­dra­tion Spray for a quick, or­ganic re­fresher when you’re out and about.

At night, in­cor­po­rate the L’Oc­c­i­tane Peony Per­fect­ing Toner into your reg­i­men. Made with peony ex­tracts, it gen­tly tones your face leav­ing the skin ra­di­ant with a smoother and more vel­vety ap­pear­ance. Choose a nour­ish­ing cream like Neal's Yard Reme­dies Frank­in­cense In­tense Con­cen­trate to lock in mois­ture with frank­in­cense and myrrh, then keep wrin­kles at bay with the Sis­leya L'in­te­gral Anti-Age that’s cre­ated with plant-based in­gre­di­ents like ur­so­lic acid, phy­tostim­u­lines, shi­itake, and es­sen­tial oils.
