WHAT YOUR SKIN IS CRAVING
Updated: Nov 9, 2021
Everything that your skin needs, and we often neglect.
I'm not sure about anyone else, but I think too many times I have tried different cosmetic products that promise results that I never get. Either products make my face too dry, feeling like the slightest movements will make it crack; or it feels like my face is sliding off.
Some of my favorite skincare products at the moment are:
Laura Geller: Spackle Skin Perfecting Primer
Kate Somerville: Exfolikate Glow Moisturizer
Clean Skin Club: Pineapple Glow Mist (my fav bc you apply before makeup & even after you take your makeup off!)
Vital skincare terms you NEED to know!
Caffeine isn’t just for giving you a kick in the morning! It’s also an important ingredient in many skin care products. Caffeine constricts blood vessels to reduce redness and puffiness. This can help improve the appearance of puffiness around the eyes, as well as reduce the appearance of cellulite. Ah, yes…music to our ears! I'm a huge fan of using scrubs that you can not only pick up just about anywhere, but you can also use your own coffee grounds from your kitchen after your fresh batch of coffee!
Another great exfoliant would be the Refined Berry Scrub (made with real cranberries). Perfecting Exfoliator Mask, Resurfacing & Smoothing, Skin-brightening AHAs, and Cranberry Seeds! A sweet 2-in-1 exfoliator mask that gently buffs and removes dead skin cells to reveal more even-toned, fresh-faced, glowing skin. Berry fun and easy-to-use facial scrub mask buffs away dull skin to reveal a smoother, softer, more even-toned glow that’s sure to brighten you up.
CBD oil has become a trendy choice for stress and anxiety management recently. When it comes to skincare, CBD has similar benefits! CBD reduces inflammation and eases discomfort in tired muscles with additional moisturizing and anti-aging properties.
Restoring properties naturally produced by your body is essential to a healthy skin care regimen. Hyaluronic Acid is one of those properties. It’s actually a sugar molecule naturally found in your skin and helps increase moisture content and prevent water loss. If you’re interested in keeping your skin radiantly hydrated for a softer, smoother appearance, look for products infused with Hyaluronic Acid, which is a key active ingredient in our Rewind™ Age Control Nectar.
If you’re a haircare nerd like us, you’re probably familiar with micellar water. It’s a key ingredient in a number of products known for deeply cleansing with a mild touch. Micellar water is loaded with cleansing molecules and is also effective as a makeup remover prior to washing your face. (You can pick this up at any drug store like Walgreens, rite aid, CVS, etc, or beauty supply store, and sometimes they come already in wipes)!
Peptides are tiny protein fragments that promote collagen growth and repair skin. Like hyaluronic acid, peptides are already present in your skin, so the right skin care product infused with peptides gives you a power boost often leading to the smoothing of expression lines and wrinkles. Peptides are an active ingredient Be Gentle™ Creamy Cleanser. Try it out and put some pep in your step!
Plant Stem Cells
Mother Earth provides many gifts! Plant Stem Cells are one of them. Plant Stem Cells boost collagen and have HUGE healthy aging benefits for your skin! Plant Stem Cells extracted from Moss are featured in many of our skincare products and offer a powerhouse of benefits to help skin look brighter and more youthful.
REJUVENIQE S™ is a MONAT-exclusive ingredient featured in many of our hair care products. The formulation includes the revitalizing powers of 17 botanical oils and other essential oils that hydrate, plump, and nourish your skin! REJUVENIQE S™ is featured in many of our new skincare products including Be Balanced™ Lightweight Moisturizer! This has also been proven to help clients with issues such as psoriasis.
Vitamin C / KAKADU PLUM
Vitamin D gets all the attention when it comes to skincare, but don’t forget about Vitamin C! Kakadu Plum is an Australian-native superfood containing a high concentration of Vitamin C and soothing anti-fungal properties. Kakadu Plum has benefits for all skin types which include brightening skin, reducing hyperpigmentation, and protecting skin from impurities found in the environment.
So now you’re full of skincare terminology and recommendations you can share with your friends and family! Plus you know exactly what type of ingredients to look for to achieve the best results.
What issues do you deal with?
Personally, I am very lucky that I have not had to deal with acne ever since puberty, (counting my blessings on that one). I do have to note that I was noticing these very small bumps on my face that would never leave no matter how smooth my face felt, I would also see those little imperfect bumps that would prevent me from taking the infamous "golden hour" selfie haha.
To be as transparent as can be, I have cleared some aisles looking for anything that would clear my face fully. I have spent so much money on facials only for them to last as long as a few weeks, then those little bumps returning. (I can post before & afters if wanted <3) Finally, I started using the Be Gentle Creamy Cleanser. By far, the best product I can honestly say I've used and has honestly and actually made a difference for me. I feel like my skin is truly brighter and more radiant. This is why I back them.
When I first started out growing and expanding my brand I wanted to make everything from scratch, connect with scientists, find the secret formula to help out people from all walks of life to help find the perfect product. I fell so in love with this product, and the brand I wanted it to become a part of what I represented. I couldn't find anything to help me out until these products not only showed up but showed up. They put your money where the product is and really make a difference using all-natural, cruelty-free, vegan products.
I highly recommend at least trying the product, or ask me for samples! You will not be disappointed and on another positive; we are so confident that you will like the product that if you don't -- you can get your money back!
I also can't get over the fact that men can use those stupid 5-in-1 shampoos, conditioners, body wash, face wash, lotions, or whatever & have the cleanest skin. I would probably develop a rare rash of some kind--it truly makes no sense.
Sidenote: also hope I'm not one of the few women who still break out right before that time of the month.
