Breaking Down and Breaking Out

Breaking Down and Breaking Out

The seasons are in transition, school is picking up and the holidays are around the corner. Jeeze-la-weeze. 

Life can get stressful pretty fast - and so can your skin.

Regardless of the stressor, you may notice that it can manifest on your face one way or another. Maybe through blemishes, red spots, or dry patches, the changes in weather, stress-levels, and even your hormones can make a big impact on your skin. 

What do I do?

If you are human (like me) you may feel overwhelmed through all these changes. I would suggest self-care and some time for yourself (even if it’s 10 minutes!). 

Our ultimate healing cream

A few minutes dedicated to yourself and some simple skincare can help do the trick! The Putty is a powerhouse facial cream that helps stressed out skin. Whether you are dealing with inflamed skin, overexposure to the elements (slicing wind currents) or sore red spots from picking at your face all day (while studying). This facial cream and its plethora of healing ingredients will help reduce redness, inflammation and skin irritation. 

How does it help?

Turmeric and hemp seed oil found in the Putty help soothe, soften and moisturize the skin while encouraging new tissue production. These wonderful ingredients also help reduce redness, acne scars, sunspots and hyper-pigmentation.  

The colloidal oatmeal found in this cream it is rich in beta-glucan which also helps reduce skin inflammation and itchiness all the while, promoting collagen production! 

What about congestion?

Don't worry, we have a solution for that too! Those hormonal and cortisol-related breakouts beware. Our Green Cream is beautifully formulated with two different types of botanical retinol alternatives, bakuchiol and moth bean. These help with cell turnover, fighting inflammation, and hydrating without the harsh effects of conventional retinol.

Need a routine?

Take some time away from all the stress - which is easier said than done but, sit down for 10 minutes and treat yourself to a sweet skincare routine.
1) Start off with a non-stripping, oil-free cleanser
2) Spritz a toner that boosts hydration
3) Hydrate with a potent, multi-benefit serum 
4) Apply a generous amount of a healing cream (or make it a face mask) and relax.

Stress is no joke, and neither is your mental & physical health. Breathe, get grounded, and don't forget to take care of your skin!
