Refresh Your Routine: AM/PM Beauty RitualsJanuary 20, 2016
As we get deeper into January, we’re guessing you’ve already traded in cookies for kombucha and lemon bars for leafy greens, which means you’ve got the whole new-year-new-you deal just about down. There’s one last thing you may be missing, though: that glow. We’re talking skin so healthy it looks positively radiant. We all want it, and lucky for us, it’s easy to achieve with a few quick upgrades to your morning and nighttime beauty routines. So grab a glass of green juice, or better yet a cup of beauty tea, read on and get glowing!
Adding a naturopathic boost or powder to your daily smoothie or steeping a cup of beautifying tea can even your complexion, hydrate your skin, improve circulation and even impart an overall sense of calm.
Take a Dry Run
Before you hop in the shower, try a little dry brushing—it exfoliates, unclogs pores and release toxins from the skin. Start at your feet and move the brush in long, sweeping motions towards your heart.
Repair Your Hair
Give your strands some love with a hair mask—in mere minutes you can heal, hydrate and smooth damaged locks.
Wipe Away the Day
On nights when you’re just too tired to do your entire cleansing routine, simply whip out an easy-peasy facial wipe to remove makeup, clear grime, and tone and hydrate your skin.
Night masks firm and nourish your beautiful face, while smoothing fine lines—ensuring that you wake up with a youthful glow.
Wash, Rinse, Repeat
Be sure to change your pillowcases on the regular—we recommend every two to three days. Oils from your hair and skin can build up on the fabric and clog pores. Plus, who doesn’t love resting upon freshly laundered sheets?
