Improve Your Skin While You Sleep

Your nighttime skin care routine plays an important role in the condition of your skin. Those eight hours of sleep (well, maybe more like 5 – 8 hours depending on life’s busy schedule) are prime time for your body to relax, recuperate, and repair.  Help your skin to take advantage of your slumber with some pre-sleep face prep.

Wash Away the Day

I never go to bed without washing my face. My go-to nightly face wash is HollyBeth Organics’ Chamomile Foaming Cleanser. For normal to dry skin, this face wash beautifully cleanses the skin without stripping it of moisture.  100% USDA certified organic, HollyBeth’s Chamomile Foaming Face Cleanser is made from the goodness of Mother Nature, meaning there are no chemicals or artificial ingredients that will linger behind on your skin. Skin is naturally cleansed, balanced, and prepped for the next step in my nighttime skin care routine.

Combat Irritation

With blemish-prone skin, I like a little extra insurance to protect me from future breakouts. HollyBeth Organics’ Marigold Bergamot Dry Oil is my solution. A few drops applied to my freshly washed skin protect and repair from below the surface, maintaining the skin’s natural balance while combating irritation and acne. And because it is dry oil, there is no greasy film or heavy buildup. It sinks directly into the skin and won’t clog pores.

Nourish the Eye Area

The final step in my nighttime skin care routine is HollyBeth Organics’ Eye Cream. A fan favorite and best seller, HollyBeth’s Eye Cream hydrates, smoothes, and invigorates the eye area, allowing you to wake up refreshed and dark circle free. My husband and I won’t go to bed without it!

Cleanse, protect, and nourish while you sleep with a little extra help from HollyBeth Organics’ 100 % USDA certified skin care solutions.

Organic Facial Cleansers

So Many Facial Cleansers

Drug store shelves are full of many different facial cleansers, so how do you decide which one to try? Do you go for the exfoliating cleanser that clears your pores, should you try an acne-fighting face wash to combat breakouts, how about a hydrating cleanser that leaves your skin tingling? No matter what result a facial cleanser is promising, start by taking a look at the ingredients listed on the bottle and go for organic facial cleansers.

Pay Attention to Ingredients

A lot of those crazy words on the label are actually chemicals and alcohols, some of which can be very harmful to the skin – and even found in other household cleaning products. I don’t want to wash my face with the same chemicals used to deep clean bathroom tile! But what about “natural” face washes? Unfortunately, the term “natural” is not properly regulated and too easily utilized to sell an ideal. Once again, take a look at the ingredients to make sure you know what is going on your face.

Go Organic

Avoid unsavory chemicals and unrecognizable ingredients. Go for organic facial cleansers! Try products made with ingredients that come from plants, flowers, and trees, free of artificial ingredients and harmful chemicals. Keeping it simple will allow your skin to get back to its natural cycle, uninhibited by distracting chemicals that can throw off its balance. Bring your skin back to life!

Looking for a good organic cleanser? Try HollyBeth Organics Chamomile Foaming Cleanser (for normal to dry skin) or our Marigold Foaming Cleanser (for those of us with more oily skin). And remember, all of HollyBeth Organics’ products are 100% USDA certified organic, so we promise you will know exactly what you are putting on your skin.

This fragrant blend of certified organic essential oils and organic castile soap gently cleans to leave skin refreshed and renewed, never stripped or dry.  Made with olive, coconut and jojoba oils, rather than the animal fats and synthetic substances found in many traditional liquid soaps and cleansers, castile soap is hypoallergenic and low impact (with a simple manufacture process that allows for a reduced waste stream and faster biodegradability).  Essential oils add circulatory, moisturizing, clarifying, soothing and antioxidant benefits for a cleanser that works overtime to deliver great skin.  Chamomile, Rosemary & Primrose Cleanser is 100% vegan.
