Looking into clean beauty? Then you should know that there are 11 cosmetic ingredients that have been banned by the FDA in the US, while 1,300 have been banned in the EU. This shows us that there are less strict regulations of what we use on our skin everyday here in the US – much of which could possible be harmful skin irritants or endocrine disruptors!
Here at La Bloom Beauty, we believe in focusing on applying ingredients that come naturally from the earth. This ensures only pure ingredients and passion are part of your everyday routine. Don’t know where to start? We got you! From non-toxic make-up to all-natural skincare, here is a a look at clean beauty dujour.
7 am - Prep & Protect
One of the most important steps in your routine is skin prep – a clean base gives you the best chance at absorbing the right nutrients and laying down a smooth foundation for makeup. Wash up, depending on your skin type. If you’re oily, then follow your normal wash routine. If you’re dry or sensitive, a quick rinse of water with a washcloth could be all you need.
This is also the time to protect your skin from the sun’s rays, dirt, debris, and city pollution. Our favorites to reach for are antioxidant-boosting Vitamin C serums and your bff sunscreen to safeguard skin from the sun.
Try: Squalene and Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum by Biossance
With just 2-3 pumps of the serum onto a cleansed face and neck, you can improve the look of dark spots and help reverse the look of sun damage.
Try: C Beyond Triple Serum SPF 40 by Ilia
Why not combine both? This encapsulated Vitamin C contains mineral SPF 40 to brighten, smooth, and protect skin all in one.
9 am - Natural Makeup Looks
After your morning routine – whether that was a light jog around the block, some yoga in the studio, or just a healthy breakfast on the deck, it’s time to move on to makeup.
Try: Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 by Ilia
It’s never a bad idea to reapply SPF throughout the day! Here, you have it included within this clean skin tint with light, dewy coverage. It contains mineral SPF – considered the more natural option – and additional skin-loving ingredients.
Try: Flush Balm Cream Blush by Merit
For the more natural beauties, this color balm is perfect for a wash of color over your cheeks and lips to bring everything back to life.
3 pm: Mid-day Pick-Me-Up
Looking for a pick-me-up? Simply pop on another swipe of the Flush Balm Cream Blush and grab the Bloom Face Mist to get that glow back. This refreshing face mist is made with natural aloe, rose, sweet orange, and eucalyptus. This is a solid combo for post-exercise, after long meetings, or that mid-day slump.
8 pm: Bath Time
Time to unwind after a long day. If you’re looking for an all-natural way to soothe your dry skin and achy muscles, look no further than Epsom salts. A warm bath with such salts soften the skin and allow moisture to penetrate deep within the layers. Add some peaceful music and rest your head on a bath pillow and let the salts to the hard work.
Try: Cocoa Epsom Soak by La Bloom Beauty
This bath soak concoction includes Epsom Salt, Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, and Dead Sea Salts, all clean ingredients naturally made from the earth to help you de-stress and detox. We added soothing lavendar, calming chamomile, moisturizing cocoa, and uplifting vanilla to turn your clean beauty PM routine into a spa-like experience.
Follow it up with OSEA Undaria Algae Body Butter. Nutrient-rich Undaria seaweed, whipped shea butter and ceramides melt into the skin with this ultra-hydrating formula clinically proven to hydrate for 72 hours. Its butter-rich texture transforms dry, crepey skin to soft, smooth, and supple.
8:30 pm: Moisturize & Repair
Before bed, continue with your nighttime cleansing routine as normal. Now’s the time to grab thicker moisturizers to lock-in moisture overnight, but we still love the fast-absorbing Overnight Star Night Cream by Peach & Lily.
For even deeper moisturization and repair, opt for skin treatments and overnight masks. We love the Indigo Overnight Repair by Tatcha to help repair the skin barrier.
Don’t forget to give other parts of your face some love!
Try: Lash & Brow Serum by La Bloom Beauty
Consistency is key if you want impressive results, so you’ll want to add this to the tail-end of your PM routine every night.
9 pm: One Last Thing!
Time for last-minute details! Keep an La Bloom Nail Oil Pen by your bed stand next to your favorite book. Just a few drops of this oil pen every night can help to keep nails strong, white, and healthy. Apply it before you tuck yourself in (so you never forget) and begin your pre-shut-eye relaxing routine.
We hope this routine inspires you to invest in clean beauty because healthy skin is beautiful skin. It’s simple to execute and your skin will love you for it!
