Begin the New Year with simple skin care

I like to pay attention to the chemicals in my skincare and keep it to a minimum. Many commercial products are made with chemicals and fillers that make for bigger profits, but not necessarily better skin for you. Here a few products in the “natural” category that I reviewed last year.

Supreme Serum by Forward Skin Care

Supreme Serum by Forward Skin Care, $86.95
Supreme Serum by Forward Skin Care, $86.95

This serum can be used twice a day, under makeup and moisturizers. Tri-Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid work to smooth wrinkles, fight discoloration and help rebuild collagen. Because it doesn’t contain preservatives, it isn’t like a traditional serum/gel. Supreme comes out in a fine stream through an airless bottle. This serum helps to fight aging symptoms during the day, even your under makeup. I noticed my skin looked clearer and smoother after a few days of use.  Forward Skincare is also cruelty free!

Baudelaire 2 in 1 Oil Absorbing Primer + Mask

Bau Del Aire 2 in 1 Oil Absorbing Primer and Mask, $18
Baudelaire 2 in 1 Oil Absorbing Primer and Mask, $18

This Versatile product can be used to cut down oil production or as a treatment mask.  Made in Australia from simple ingredients including purified water and Magnesium Hydroxide, it eliminates surface oil making your skin nice and smooth. Do you ever get those weird sweat patches on your face? I have one on my eyebrow that pops up here and there. lt washes away my makeup and is just annoying. I put a couple of drops of Bau Del Aire on it and it kept it at bay all day. You can’t get it at stores yet, but they ship from the USA at www. baudelaire.com.au.

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Extra Moisture Restorative Day Creme with Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen

RE9 Advanced Extra Moisture Restorative Day Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen, $50
RE9 Advanced Extra Moisture Restorative Day Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen, $50

Arbonne is known as a leader in chemical free and vegan products. Their newest line of skincare, RE9 has products that contain nine major age-defying products. Protecting the skin from the sun is key in having good skin, but I always feel like my skin is too dry. This SPF moisturizer left my skin feeling like I doused it with a night cream. It smells a little like suntan oil mixed with orange and kind of pulls you out of the winter doldrums. It is available alone or as part of other RE9 skincare sets.
