‘Tis the season, Soap Market friends! And it’s not what you’re thinking!
Chilly, dry, winter weather has played some havoc on our faces, and now it’s time for extra measures…and a strong defense to revamp and renew your facial skin care routine.
We know how comfortable it is to stick with what’s quick and easy, but regardless of where you call home, it never hurts to have a few reminders.
Cue in the ‘Buts’…
‘I don’t have time’
‘It’s too expensive’
‘I don’t like change’
‘Why can’t I use the same products all year long?’
‘Nah, it doesn’t matter what I use’
‘I’m too old to change’
‘I’m young and don’t need to worry about that yet’
How about we pinky swear to not let life get in the way, and not be afraid to take a little advice from our seasoned bests!
Did you know it takes about 21 days to create a habit?
We’ve got some easy tips, tricks, and refreshers…
Some of these may sound a bit familiar (and maybe some advice you’ve gotten from your mom or gramma), but guess what? They work! You’ve heard the saying, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?’
We’re game, and ready to take the plunge (not the polar plunge though - yikes! We’re already dreaming of warm, summer days!)
And how about we compare some notes down the road?
--->We’d love for you to tag us with a pic on any of our social media of you using your favorite RMSM facial product!
We all know this one… don’t forget to drink plenty of good, quality H2O.
A good night’s sleep is always our best friend.
A gentle cleanser depending on your skin type and using a natural silk sea sponge ensures a clean slate with no harsh scrubbing.
This one’s a biggie… be sure to take off any makeup (and the daily stress) EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT. Anyone else guilty of skipping this step? Asking for a friend!
Weekly exfoliation with either some gentle dry brushing, a ramie facial pad or the aforementioned sea sponge. Our Ginger Lemongrass and Neem oil Natural Soap pairs perfectly with these natural facial essentials. Neem Oil is the ultimate in skin care for face and body. In fact, there are so many benefits, it deserves a special blog all its own… but for the sake of our renewed facial skin care - the benefits of aiding in eczema, psoriasis, acne, and anti-aging are A++! Just avoid the urge to over exfoliate- this can strip any natural oils your parched skin may already have.
A pampering Facial Steam for soothing and ultra-boosting properties
A good rule of thumb when it comes to the order of applying your facial skin care products is lightest to heaviest.
A lovely, little hidden gem in our Facial Care routine is our Facial Mist. Used after rinsing your face in the morning or throughout the day, it’s the perfect refreshing, hydrating antioxidant boost, and it is oh so good under or over makeup.
Don’t be afraid to layer on your facial moisturizers! After applying your toner/mist, it’s best to apply our Premium Facial Restore (both at night, and in the AM) The super nutrients will soak in and restore (get it!) your tired skin cells, while topping it off with our Frankincense and Helichrysum Facial Serum to seal in all the needed power packed moisture we need, will literally revive your skin back to its natural glow.
Don’t leave off the SPF! We tend to forget that even in the cooler months our delicate dermis can suffer from the aging effects of that warm spring sunshine.
Last but not least- don’t forget to seal the deal (or your lips rather)! Our smiles speak volumes, so the lip balm you use should be the able to do the same!
Have you tried ours? It’s only the best natural, hand crafted and gourmet Lip Balm EVER!
