Be kind to your skin with these eco-friendly skincare products that are kind to the environment, as well! Whether you’re in the market for a new cleanser, moisturizer or other specialized treatment, give one or all of these skincare picks a try.
For a gentle, non-drying cleanser, I love Caudalie Gentle Cleanser ($26.) This is a great cleanser for all skin types, especially sensitive skin! Your face will feel clean and refreshed without that annoying tight or dry feeling some cleansers leave behind. Yes, it’s a bit pricey – but it works.
To help address the signs of aging, Burt’s Bees Naturally Ageless Serum ($25.99,) combines pomegranate (a powerful anti-oxidant) and evening primrose oil to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, fight free radical damage and add moisture back into the skin for a beautiful complexion. I like to combine a few drops of this serum with my regular moisturizer both morning and night.
Made with 100% vegetarian ingredients and formulated without parabens, Avalon Organics Vitamin C Rejuvenating Oil-Free Moisturizer ($20,) offers superior moisturization for any skin type. The ingredients in this potent moisturizing cream will help tone and revive a dull complexion, as well as protect against all signs of aging, including free radical damage. Plus, it smells great!
If you’re prone to breakouts and random blemishes, then you definitely need to try Desert Essence Blemish Touch Stick ($8.79.) This ingenious stick uses the power of tea tree oil (a natural antiseptic) and 10 other oils that promote clean, clear and healthy skin. There’s nothing artificial about this blemish stick, and it’s 100% vegan. As anyone who has used tea tree oil before will tell you, the smell can be very strong; use it at night to avoid irritating friends or co-workers!
Used both morning and night, Burt’s Bees Radiance Eye Creme with Royal Jelly ($12.99,) offers superior anti-aging benefits naturally. Royal Jelly is one of nature’s most powerful nourishing agents, and this product will help minimize fine lines, reduce puffiness and promote skin renewal.
