I've fallen behind on the #springflingchallenge, but here's to catching up over the next couple days🍻 Friday's prompt was ✨ingredient✨ and I want to highlight one of my favorites: HYALURONIC ACID 😘 HA is a phenomenal hydrating + anti-aging ingredient -- it can hold up to 1000x its weight in water, so it's great for hydrating skin + plumping up fine lines/wrinkles, and it also boosts skin elasticity + encourages collagen production. HA is naturally occurring in the skin, but levels typically drop with age, so it's a great one to supplement in skincare✌ A few HA products currently in rotation: 💦@pureanada Smooth Priming Serum: Despite the name, I use this as a skincare step, not a makeup primer. Super simple ingredients -- just hyaluronic acid + chamomile floral water -- and it does a great job hydrating + plumping skin. 💦@livebotanical Aer Aloe + Green Tea Hyaluronic Acid Serum: a new one to me, fresh from the April @artoforganics box🎁 Again, super simple ingredients: aloe, green tea + hyaluronic acid this time🙆 I've only used it a few times, but so far I like it a lot💕💕 💦@previseskincare Hydrofoam Hyaluronic Moisturizer - a unique aerated product made with hyaluronic acid, ceramides + vitamin B5. The foam isn't moisturizing enough to function as a solo moisturizer for my winter skin, but I've been enjoying it as a hydrating step, followed by an oil or cream. I'm curious to see how it does in the warmer weather☀ 💦Not pictured is my first HA love: the Active Gel Toner from @osmiaorganics, made with hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, white tea, aloe + more 😘 I've long run out and been exploring other options, but the Gel Toner is 😍😍 + I'm sure I'll come back to it at some point👍
Happy earth day! 🌏 _____ Over the past year I’ve learned so much about green beauty. It seems like I’m introduced to new green beauty brand every single day! With the way things are going, I gotta say I’m thankful more and more brands are focusing on ethical and sustainable ingredients, manufacturing processes, labor sources, etc. One of the front runners of the movement is @tataharperskincare! All their products are made in small batches in Vermont. They aim to use eco-friendly packaging. And they have a team filled with female scientists 💪🏽 _____ So in honor of earth day I’m using their resurfacing mask for #aprilmaskaday! The jar in this photo was a PR gift but I’ve gone through two minis that I purchased myself 🤓 It’s the perfect exfoliating mask for when my skin is on the dry side 👌🏽 _____ Now I am off to mask & watch @westworldhbo 🧖🏾♀️ Hope you end your weekend on a positive note too!
