Organic Skincare With Puristry

Since turning 30 and seeing subtle changes in the tone, texture and sensitivity of my skin, I've made a HUGE change in my skincare routine. In the past, I'd run to the drugstore and grab whatever Clearasil  product would solve my issues, which usually resulted in drying my face out to the point of making it worse -- thus, creating a vicious cycle of purchasing more over the counter remedies, most of which (I can't lie) I'd buy because they had colorful packaging or pretty, shiny exfoliators floating in them. I've moved on :)

Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to fix a problem or buy products that are "in" at the moment, that we totally forget just what is in the products we're putting on our faces. These can include

- parabens
- formaldehyde (YES! it IS in beauty products!)
- sodium laurel sulphate (this is what makes things nice a bubbly/foamy)
- propylene glycol

...and these are just a handful. Did you know that your body literally absorbs these things as you're using them?! I recently discovered an organic brand called Puristry and it's changed the way I take care of my face. I've been really trying to do less picking a plucking (don't lie, you know you do it too!) and just let my face take care of itself without me meddling in it's business ;) While I haven't tried all of the Puristry products, here are a few of my favorites:

- Flower Water Toner: Astringent vs toner? This is definitely a toner! What is skin toner? Skin toner's purpose is to use natural ingredients to cleanse and moisturize the face, while astringents are alcohol based and tend to dry out your skin. Puristry combines calendula and rose in their natural toner, which calms your skin and makes it feel SO incredibly soft. It works so well that I haven't been using my daily's that good.

- Vine Therapy Serum: This isn't just your run of the mill serum. This is a reservatrol serum. Reservatrol creams are packed with antioxidants and help to reduce environmental stressors like, free radicals, that we encounter every single day. Not only that, but reservatrol skin care increases skin elasticity and helps to improve complexion.

- Yerba Mate Eye Cream: Tea is not just for drinking! Yerba mate is the best tea for your skin! While yerba mate isn't technically a green tea, green tea skin products are also super beneficial. Since entering corporate America and traveling tons for my job, I find that my eyes have needed the most love. This eye cream is amazing when it comes to de-puffing those pesky under eye bags from stress and lack of sleep.

Not only are the products above amazing, they smell like a day at the spa. I especially love using them before bed because the natural smell helps me relax and have a good nights rest.
