Don't Know What Products Are Right For Your Skin Type?

Even if you're using fantastic products, using ones that don't work for your skin type can actually cause or aggravate skin conditions.

Whether you deal with breakouts, chronic dry skin, or your face is super sensitive, we've got you covered. Take a look at our skincare collections below so you can take control of your skincare regime to achieve healthy glowing skin! 

 

Sensitive Skin

If your skin is more on the sensitive side, you ought to choose products that don't contain fragrance or any common irritants that may cause redness or acne. Start with a scent-free cleanser like our Face Foam. It's pH balanced so it won't mess with the delicate acid mantle which protects your face but is effective enough to cleanse and remove makeup and grime. 

Our Super Sensitive Skin Stuff was made especially for those whose skin reacts to everything. Using mineral rich Canadian harvested maple sap, Skin Stuff is a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer that absorbs quickly into the skin and contains zero fragrance. 

To lessen your skin sensitivity, incorporate our Face Food Mineral Mist into your daily skincare regime. It contains active silver, zinc, magnesium, and copper which help soothe and repair skin plagued by conditions including acne and dermatitis. 

 

Red Prone Skin

For those who are prone to redness, you want to look for products that contain active ingredients that can help with redness and inflammation. Our Aloe Milk Cleanser contains aloe vera juice which is anti-inflammatory, leaving your skin feeling soothed without stripping away the natural oils from your skin. 

Seasonal changes can also leave your skin irritated and suspectible to flare ups. Our Face Food Mineral Mist contains minerals which help with inflammation. Silver is particularly good for killing germs, as is zinc for anti-inflammation, so both are good at addressing redness no matter what the cause may be (e.g. allergies, infection, etc.) 

The Putty moisturizer is made with a complex blend of healing oils that can help heal and soothe red, dry irritated skin. Turmeric which has been used for hundreds of years is a powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidant that can help control skin flare-ups and skin conditions like psoriasis. The Putty can be used as a face moisturizer or as a targeted spot treatment on the body.  

 

Get Dewy, Not Dull Skin

Is your skin looking a little sallow? Dull skin can be caused by stress, lack of sleep, or even environmental factors like living in a highly polluted area. But the two key culprits that contribute to sallow skin are usually because you're forgetting to exfoliate or properly hydrate. 

To start, try incorporating a pre-cleansing oil into your skincare regime. Oil cleansing has been around for centuries because of it's ability to remove unwanted oil, grime and makeup without stripping the skin of moisture. The Keto Cleanse will thoroughly remove unwanted congested oil and grime, while simultaneously moisturizing the skin and protecting it. Follow up with your regular cleanser. 

If you aren't using an exfoliant, it's time to start now! Exfoliating the skin can slough off dead skin cells resulting in radiant looking skin underneath. Our Superfood Mask + Scrub contains 15 face brightening superfoods, encapsulated in a travel-friendly capsule to deliver glowing skin in literally just a few minutes.

Along with a moisturizer, you should also be using a serum beforehand to give your skin some added hydration. Our Superfood Serum is antioxidant rich and offers your face a nutrient dense, anti-aging boost. It's jam-packed with linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid, carotenoids, tocotrienols and tocopherols (the natural isomers of Vitamin E) and a rich source of the essential fatty acids your skin needs to thrive, not just survive!

To allow your serum and moisturizer to penetrate more deeply, use a spritz or two of our Face Food Mineral Mist as it helps your skin to absorb vital nutrients much more effectively and efficiently.

After you are done with your skincare routine, amp up your glow even further with our Face Glow. It's a tinted primer and illuminator that creates a lovely shimmer when applied to your skin. Infused with mineral mica, this product helps redirect light to blur imperfections and even out your skin tone for a natural, radiant look. 

 

Dry / Mature Skin

As we age our skin begins to lose elasticity and collagen production slows down, resulting in dry, 'mature' looking skin. To help with these challenges, look for gentle products that are deeply hydrating and contain ingredients that can help rewind the clock. 

Our Keto Cleanse uses ghee and MCT to cleanse, nourish and hydrate the skin simultaneously. 

Follow up with our Aloe Milk Cleanser. It will take dirt and makeup off your face without stripping away the natural oils you want for your skin to stay young and fresh. This creamy oil-based cleanser works exceptionally well for all skin types because it dissolves, bonds with and pulls out the dirt, sebum and makeup lodged deep within your pores, leaving your face feeling clean and taut.

Using our Face Food is a wonderful way to keep your skin healthy, fresh and rejuvenated - no matter your skin type. Minerals like zinc can aid in collagen production and skin regeneration. 

Berry Rich is loaded with antioxidants and probiotics to help you maintain a youthful complexion. Probiotics, when used regularly, can improve your skin's ability to protect you against free radicals, sun damage and pollution which can encourage premature aging or wrinkles. Its rich and gentle formula also makes it a great antioxidant eye cream!

Along with your face, we shouldn't neglect the body either. Our All Over Elixir Oil is a face and body oil that will leave your whole body feeling moisturized and rejuvenated. For extra absorption on skin that needs a little more attention, apply this face and body oil on wet skin (right after you shower or bathe apply the oil) and follow with a gentle ‘towel off’). Yes, The Elixir is powerful, yet gentle enough as a daily hydrator for your face!

 

Oily Skin

If you're constantly battling with an oily T-zone then you have oily or combination skin. You want to use products that aren't greasy and keep your skin looking and feeling balanced, neither too dry or oily. 

To start try our Face Foam. Ingredients like apple cider vinegar can break down grease and grime on your skin without stripping the skin or causing an overproduction of oil.

A hydrating but non-greasy moisturizer like our Green Cream is perfect for those with oily skin. This lotion-like cream contains superfoods like broccoli, avocado, and aloe which can help soothe skin and deliver moisture. A common misconception is that if you have oily skin, then moisturizing is not necessary but that's not true! Moisturizing can help form a protective barrier on the skin and also can prevent your skin from drying out if you are also using harsh acne treatments. 

Oily skin is more prone to breakouts so use a face mask regularly to deep clean your skin. Our Superfood Mask + Scrub can be used as an exfoliant (when mixed with a cleanser) or as a weekly mask treatment. Ingredients like activated charcoal help remove excess oil from the skin, leaving you glowing. 

Use our zinc rich Face Food Mist to treat oiliness. Zinc can help regulate oil production in your skin and lessen an over-production of oil and can also help with wound healing and acne scarring.

Have a troublesome pimple? The Germs Away Aromablend acts as a spot treatment to soothe and diminish your blemish while nourishing it so your skin won’t get flaky.
