I will be the first to admit I don't have the best skincare routine. I pretty much confessed that in this post. I don't always wash my face before I go to bed, sometimes forget to moisturize. It happens.
Even though I am not the best with my skin, I am always on the lookout for something new to try for my skin. I am sure you have heard of Seventh Generation before. Most of those I chatted with about this only knew of their cleaning products. They are SO much more than that. Not only do they offer environmentally friendly cleaning products, but they also offer products for baby (hello diapers!) and of course personal care products! When I was sent some of their new skin boosting serums (available at Walgreens for $14.99) I was pretty excited to try them-Not only to give my aging and tired skin a little boost, but because I love supporting a company that cares about the environment we live and breath every day!
The nice thing about these skin boosting serums is they are 100% plant-based- plus there is a variety to choose from to fit your skin's needs. I was able to try the Hydrating and Revitalizing over the last two to three weeks. After a few days though, I realized that I did not really need the hydrating, and stuck mainly to the revitalizing.
Over the course of the last two to three weeks, I have noticed a slight difference in my skin. I have always had dark under eye circles. I really think they look less harsh since using the revitalizing serum. I just think the overall look of my skin is better. Do I feel like I can leave the house without wearing any makeup? No! (I think I need the Fountain of Youth for that one). But I do notice a change.
When using the serum, I didn't use any facial moisturizer either. This did a great job of moisturizing, although you can combine the serums with their lotions for an added bonus.
Even though I don't think I will ever go out of the house sans makeup, using the serum sort of allows me to have the "less is more" mentality. Because it makes my skin look a little more awake I am ok with heading out with minimal makeup on. Usually those days its some BB cream, mascara, and blush (sometimes no blush-just a pinch or two of my cheeks for natural color). Toss my hair into a top knot and I am good to go. On those low key, all natural days you can find me wearing something pretty low key like this little number...
You can't get more all natural, comfy (and even stylish) than boyfriend jeans and some Chuck Taylors!
So what about you? Are there days where all you want to do is be as natural as you can be?
