I don’t know about you, but I feel like my skin has really been feeling the effects of stress lately. Call it a combination of a busy work schedule, the election, and the harsh winter that’s starting to settle in, but my face has been more difficult than I was as a rebellious teenager (and that’s saying a lot). I do my best to treat it well and have developed a pretty solid routine with a rotation of beauty products I’ve been lucky enough to try through work. I’ve been cycling through 3 face cleansers throughout the week – not because I have any specific, science backed method, but because they’re all so effective, natural (something I’ve really been into recently) and beautifully designed (by rad humans, none the less!).
Here are the top 3:
1. Pestle and Mortar Erase and Renew – There’s something about a double cleansing system that is so luxurious and makes you feel so CLEAN. These creamy cleansers are created by a husband and wife duo who have really nailed the quality ingredients + chic design thing.
2. Linné Purify Face Wash – Linné’s founder Jenna believes in feeding your skin in the same way you feed your body – wholesome and naturally. This green cleanser feels like a (slightly exfoliating) smoothie for your face (seriously, read the ingredients, you could probably eat it).
3. Pai’s Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser – All of Pai’s products have a way of feeling simple – like they’ve stripped everything down and only left the essentials. This cleanser is super gentle and (unsurprisingly) hydrating.
Have you tried any of these cleansers? What kind of face wash do you find works best to keep your skin happy and hydrated?
