My Natural Skincare Routine: Morning AND Evening

I’ve come a really long way with my skincare routine. I seriously SWEAR by the natural products that I use today and I’m so happy I finally found them. Before I knew that I should have a natural skincare routine, I was someone who bought super crazy expensive products at department stores and dermatologist offices…

But also, I’m someone who had tried tons of products from Whole Foods and those sold to me through estheticians. Oh, and let’s not forget the thousands of skincare products I’ve been gifted by brands over the years. Believe me, I’ve tried them all…to no avail.

If you follow me on Instagram Stories then you already know that I 100% stand behind OZNaturals skincare products for my natural skincare routine. They are a cold processed skincare line that uses the highest quality, natural ingredients. OZNaturals ingredients are extremely effective because of their cold processing system, which means that no heat is used during formulation. Cold processing skincare is very unique and OZNaturals is probably the only company that is fully cold processed.

Most skincare companies formulate their products using heat because it kills harmful bacteria. Heat also destroys the effectiveness of the ingredients, but they use it because it’s easy and ingredients don’t have to be as high of quality. I explain all about cold processing skincare here.

What’s more, OZNaturals products are so ridiculously affordable that it makes me cry every time I think about how much I used to pay for a little bottle of serum or eye cream. Where’s that monkey emoji with hands over eyes when I need him?

Up until recently, I truly thought I would never have pretty skin. Literally, nothing has ever worked. Skin issues that have plagued me throughout my life:

  • hyperpigmentation
  • redness
  • dullness/grayness
  • acne
  • tiny bumps on forehead
  • uneven skin tone
  • fine lines
  • dehydrated skin
  • inflamed skin

How My Skin Has Transformed

Ever since using OZNaturals products, I’ve seen my skin change. I have glow! Glow is the most exciting thing to me ever, because it means that I don’t need to hide behind makeup. I am proud of my healthy, vibrant, plump, hydrated, and fresh-faced skin. It’s amazing – the feeling of having skin that you feel comfortable walking around in public with…sans makeup.

In addition to glow, my tone has improved drastically! Tiny bumps are a thing of the past. No inflammation or redness. Plumpness and hydration. Fine lines? Where??

NOTE: The photos in the post are 100% makeup-free (something I would never have felt comfortable with in the past). They were taken right after I got back from spending 2 weeks at my lake house in Canada, where I was exposed to lots of sun. I have more pigmentation and freckles than I did before my trip, but, I know that my OZNaturals skincare will take care of that soon.

If I can have good skin, you can too. I swear! These changes aren’t overnight, they take time. My skin keeps getting better. It’s a journey. But if you dedicate yourself to a natural skincare routine every day, you WILL see results. Oh, check out cosmetic acupuncture while you’re at it too.

So before I get into my natural skincare routine for morning and evening, please know that if OZNaturals has the product in their line I will most definitely use it because I know all of their products are the highest quality, they’re cold-processed, they don’t use harmful preservatives, and they really work. I will update this post if my skincare regimen changes.

Morning Skincare Routine

  1. Wash face with OZNaturals Vitamin C Facial Cleanser. This natural face wash helps stimulate the skin’s rate of exfoliation for a brighter, smoother complexion. Skin feels deeply clean, smooth and radiant after use.
  2. Use 2-3 pumps OZNaturals Ocean Mineral Toning Mist all over the face, under the eye, above the eye, and décolleté. This toner is a fabulous primer for the serums you layer on top and helps products to work better. Filled with antioxidants!
  3. Apply OZNaturals Vit C + AHA Serum or OZNaturals Vit C Facial Serum all over the face, under the eye, above the eye, and décolleté. Vit C and AHAs are incredible and they’re essential anti-aging ingredients. These ingredients work on problems like hyperpigmentation, dullness, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. I’ll use the VIT C + AHA (which I’m obsessed with) when I’m not planning to spend time in the sun as AHA is photo sensitive. I’ll wear VIT C if I’m planning to be out in the sun. BTW – Vitamin C naturally protects your skin from the sun, so you should def wear it everyday.
  4. Apply OZNaturals Sea Infused Herbal Moisturizer (Note: this is their brand new formulation and it is safe for breastfeeding/pregnancy).
  5. Apply OZNaturals Ultra Ageless Eye Cream on under eye, eyelid, and all around the eye. Works on addressing dark under eyes and puffy under eyes. Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant, is known for its anti-inflammatory support.

Evening Skincare Routine

  1. Wash face with OZNaturals Vitamin C Facial Cleanser.
  2. Use 2-3 pumps OZNaturals Ocean Mineral Toning Mist all over the face, under the eye, above the eye, and décolleté. This toner is a fabulous primer for the serums you layer on top and helps products to work better. Filled with antioxidants!
  3. Apply OZNaturals Dragon’s Blood Facial Serum all over the face, under the eye, above the eye, and décolleté. Dragon’s Blood is the most powerful antioxidant in the world and has anti-inflammatory compounds that help protect the cells of the skin and reduce redness and swelling. Dragon’s Blood aids in the repair of collagen, and may help to heal skin tissue such as scarring and hyperpigmentation.
  4. Apply OZNaturals Sea Infused Herbal Moisturizer (Note: this is their brand new formulation and it is safe for breastfeeding/pregnancy).
  5. If I have time, I’ll do a facial massage using Botnia Replenishing Facial Oil (I use this on top of the rest of my skincare products)
  6. Apply OZNaturals Ultra Ageless Eye Cream on under eye, eyelid, and all around the eye. Works on addressing dark under eyes and puffy under eyes. Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant, is known for its anti-inflammatory support.

From Time To Time

Every 2-3 days I exfoliate my skin with the Bamboo Enzyme Facial Scrub. I do this morning or night, it just depends on what I’m feeling like that day. You mix this scrub with a little bit of face wash and let it stand for 45 minutes before removing. Letting it sit allows the lactic acid to penetrate the skin. Serums and other facial products will be absorbed so much better after using this scrub. It feels AMAZING!

If my skin is feeling oily or clogged, I’ll start my evening skincare routine with the Botnia Balancing Oil Cleanser. You can also use a cold-pressed olive oil. I use a warm-hot washcloth that I press on my face. Next, I do a quick facial massage with the oil all over the face, focusing my massage on the areas that feel clogged. Use the hot washcloth to wipe off the oil. Follow with step 2 for evening skincare routine.
