Put Your Best Face Forward
January in the Six. Anyone else feel like their face might crack and fall off? When temperatures plummet, they take moisture along for the ride. This means that on top of extra layers of clothing, we need extra layers of protection to combat the elements. Thankfully there are some amazing options out there in the clean beauty world – for every skin type and every budget. We’ve put together some of our faves from Muni Muni Skincare, The Detox Market and Osea Malibu.
Start your day off right with Beautiful Day Moisturizer from Odacité. A blend of organic coconut and jojoba oils plus aloe work to hydrate and also protect the skin from environmental aggressors (aka windchill - brrr).
Muni Muni Skincare is based right here in Toronto so they know a thing or two about winter! Their Nourish Daily Moisturizer’s lightweight formula is perfect for everyday use - avocado oil and apricot kernel oil are packed with vitamins E and C, helping to lock in moisture and improve skin’s texture and elasticity.
Equally important to moisturizing your skin is exfoliating. Muni Muni’s Powder Enzyme Cleanse is the perfect blend of natural exfoliates and enzymes that gently cleanses and polishes for a firmer and more even complexion.
Pai Skincare’s Avocado & Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream has saved me this winter! The vitamin-rich formula is especially ideal for dry and sensitive skin, and the avocado and jojoba oils protect and hydrate, leaving your skin feeling soft and nourished, but never greasy.
If the dark days of winter are getting you down, Osea’s Vitamin C Probiotic Face Polish will brighten things up in no time. Mineral-rich seaweeds buff away dull skin and organic ingredients including pomegranate, bamboo and rice powder work with vitamin C to nourish, polish and and visibly brighten your complexion. Take that, January!
