Start your day on an energizing and aromatic note with 5 of our favorite Aveda morning skin care products. It’s a quick routine and one that ensures healthy, glowing skin. So let’s get glowing, shall we?!?
1. Cleanse: Begin by cleansing your face with Botanical Kinetics Purifying Gel Cleanser. This is a gentle cleanser that foams very well and removes impurities without drying or stripping your beautiful mug. It’s enriched with lavender and vitamin E, making it a great product for normal to oily skin. If your skin is on the dry side, then we recommend that you cleanse with Botanical Kinetics Purifying Creme Cleanser. No matter which one you choose, gently apply over your face and neck, rinse with lukewarm water, then gently pat dry with a clean towel.
2. Tone and Refresh: Spritz on Botanical Kinetics Skin Toning Agent on your face and neck and gently pat in with your fingertips. Packed with sugar-derived hyaluronate and rosewater, this toning spray will wake up your sleepiest self. Though it works best for normal to dry skin, it’s good for any skin type because it’s not heavy. If you want something a smidge lighter, go with Botanical Kinetics Toning Mist.
Bonus: Both the Toning Agent and Toning Mist are fantastic make-up setters - and you can reapply over makeup throughout your busy day to refresh and renew when you need it most.
3. Moisture-eyes: Don’t forget your peepers! With your ring finger, gently apply Botanical Kinetics Energizing Eye Creme under your eyes. Licorice root and coffee bean extracts help diminish the appearance of dark circles and increase energy in cells around the eyes to awaken and brighten. It’s suitable for all skin types and is safe and gentle enough to use on the eyelid.
4. Treat: Smooth on a treatment serum to your face and neck, such as Tulasāra Firm Concentrate. This miracle in a beautiful brown glass bottle is a special blend of ayurvedic plant extracts that instantly tighten and firm the skin. You’ll only need about a pump’s worth to see and feel its magical results. For sensitive skin, we recommend you use the Tulasāra Calm Concentrate, and if your skin is dull and lacks luster, try Tulasāra Bright Concentrate.
5. Moisturize: It’s your last step to glowing, healthy skin! Smooth Botanical Kinetics Intense Hydrating Soft Creme on your face and neck - or if you’re looking for extra hydration, use the Intense Hydrating Rich Creme version. It’s packed with an amazing ingredient called Salicornia herbaria, a seashore plant, that helps the skin absorb and retain moisture - all. day. long. You’ll have a dewy, smooth, and soft skin texture without any heaviness.
That’s it! Keep up the good work and you’ll notice the results in no time. Way to glow, you!
