The beauty industry alone produces 120 million pieces of packaging each year (yikes!). And while we *love* a maximalist skincare moment, oftentimes a more simplified routine is more supportive of both your skin… and our planet, too! Not only will a simplified skin routine limit the amount of bottles hitting our landfills, but it may even improve your complexion! (Yep, using toooo many products at once with many varying active ingredients may compromise your skin’s barrier, leading to dryness, sensitivities and breakouts.)
So, we invite you to evaluate the bottles, jars and pumps on your skincare shelf. And we proudly introduce you to some of our favorite multi-task tools in shop… giving you the ability to scale down the steps (and bottles) in your regimen, and scale UP your GLOW.
Multi-use wonders ahead…
OUR MULTI-TASKING MUSTS
Prime, Prep + Protect! / Suntegrity ‘5-in-1 Natural Sunscreen’ – Your BB cream, primer and SPF all in one mighty tube! Using broad spectrum, non-nano SPF 30 protection + nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, red algae + aloe vera — it’s the new everyday staple in your life. Plus, it’s great for oily + acne-prone skin types!
Cheeks, Lids + More! / Axiology ‘Lip-to-Lid Balmies’ – 100% zero waste crayons that hydrate like a balm but wear (anywhere) like a tint! They’re packed with healing butters and antioxidants from elderberry + plum oil, and can be used to pop eyes, lips or cheeks! Just peel away the recyclable paper as needed and swipe on!
The Everywhere Soother! / She Plants Love ‘Bare Butter’ – Your new favorite cure-all. Formulated with shea butter, coconut oil and jojoba seed oil for the most sensitive skin in mind. It’s benefits are endless: use on skin irritations, sun-exposed skin, rough patches, on stretch marks, on the lips, to tame baby hairs, condition the scalp + *much* more.
Hidden Pantry Gem! / Activist ‘Raw Manuka Honey’ – Wildcrafted in New Zealand, this manuka honey is a multitasking hero. Stir a spoon into a warming elixir for immune strengthening properties. Apply directly to skin to help reduce acne-related inflammation, balance pH, heal scrapes + burns. Use as a spot treatment or mix into your fav mask for a super skin boost!
