My Favorite Go-To Clean Skin Care Products

When it comes to my self-care routine, I want safe, real ingredients I can pronounce. Below are my go-to list of products that I absolutely cannot live without. I LOVE knowing that I am using clean, conscious products on my skin with no artificial or synthetic additives. Another major plus is that many of the ingredients listed below contain certified organic ingredients.

01. Primally Pure Charcoal Deodorant

Unlike most natural deodorants I have used in the past, this stuff actually WORKS. I have to warn you though, there was definitely a 1-2 week period when I did sweat more and felt stinky, but after my body adjusted, I was so happy I gave this deo a try and stuck with it. This guy is made with activated charcoal to deodorize and disinfect. There are other scents which you can check out here.

02. Primally Pure Lip Balm

Contains tallow from grass-fed cows, coconut oil and shea butter. Essential oils are used for fragrance and added nourishment. I use peppermint and love the burst of freshness (especially if I don’t have gum or a mint on hand)! Purchase here.

03. Cocokind Skin Care Products

I grouped all of my Cocokind Products into one category because they make up the bulk of my skin care routine. When I first tested this skincare line, I tried the facial cleansing oil. I was looking for a gentler cleanser for my skin. The old product I was using had a harsh drying effect. I felt like my pH balance was way off. My skin would feel super dry after washing, but would get oily throughout the day. I was intrigued by the research I had done regarding oil-based cleansers so I gave their facial cleansing oil a try. I fell in love with the way this oil both cleaned and moisturized my skin. I no longer had that dried out feeling immediately after washing…and wouldn’t you know, my skin actually felt less oily! Here is a breakdown of my favorites:

Daily:

Facial Cleansing Oil

Rosewater Facial Toner

Golden Elixir

Eye Makeup Remover

2-3 x’s Week:

Sea Moss Exfoliator

Chlorophyll Mask

04. Organic Coconut Oil

Used as a skin moisturizer or deep hair conditioner treatment. I apply this to my skin directly after a shower and to my hair 1 x month for 1-2 hours prior to washing.

05. Lavender and Tea Tree Essential Oils

Tea Tree: I mix tea tree with a carrier oil (I use coconut oil) as a spot treatment for acne breakouts when stress and hormones give me issues. This oil is very powerful, so be sure to do a test patch and mix well with a carrier. A little goes a long way. I create a mixture of 1 TBLS coconut oil with 2-3 drops of tea tree and store in an amber glass jar (oils are sensitive to light).

Lavender: I love to add some drops of lavender to my coconut oil before applying as a skin moisturizer. I also create a pillow spray to encourage relaxation at bedtime. Just a little spritz on our pillows using this recipe:

  • 1 tablespoon Unscented Witch Hazel

  • 15-20 drops Lavender Essential Oil

  • Fill the rest with distilled water

  • Amber or Cobalt Glass Spray Bottle

Also, I haven’t tried it yet, but this facial mask from Headed Somewhere looks rather interesting.
