my morning beauty renewal routine

It’s crazy that January is already coming to a close! This month has been full of transition and chaos- we’ve experienced quite a bit of division and hurt in our country this season, and with tensions high, we could all use a little extra dose of compassion and love. This month, I’ve been focusing on renewal. The word itself means “to make like new: restore to freshness, vigor, or perfection.” I love the concept of restoring something and making it like new, and feel like there a lot of ways this definition can be applied and executed in one’s life. So- all that said, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite beauty products that are renewal-oriented and are sure to start off your days with refreshment and intentionality. Because it begins with the small things.

I am a 7 on the Enneagram and a classic ENFP, which basically means that I love spontaneity. BUT- I’ve found that in my life, routine is such a beautiful and grounding thing for me. Each morning, I’ve found that having a practice of breakfast, always coffee, and a beauty regime, has created space for me to feel grounded but operate in a free way throughout the day. These beauty goodies are ones that I keep coming back to- because they’re full of things to keep my skin feeling great and refreshed.

  1. Berlin Skin Coconut + Aloe Facial Cleanser:
    Sometimes you stumble on a product that embodies all your favorite smells. This cleanser is packed with lavender, lemon, chamomile, and sandalwood and is the ultimate morning wash. With coconut + aloe, it leaves your skin feeling soft and refreshed for the perfect beginning to any day.
  2. Cocokind: 
    We’ve all heard about the benefits of coconut oil- and I love the way that Cocokind is mixing up some delicious goods with their products. Matcha + coconut body moisturizer anyone? All of their products are chemical-free, preservative-free, paraben-free, and cruelty-free- and full of all kinds of coconut benefits. Plus their sea-moss exfoliator is the best for leaving your skin feeling scrub soft clean.
  3. Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Spray:
    I discovered this beautiful facial spray a couple years ago in Seattle and now I’m hooked. Originally drawn to Herbivore because of their gorgeous branding, I now am simply hooked on how amazing this spray smells and feels. Plus, you can find them now at your local Anthropologie!
  4. Essential Oil- Peppermint:
    Peppermint oil seems to be a magic worker. Especially in the morning. Known to treat indigestion, headaches, nausea and more, I love putting a couple drops in a glass of hot water and lemon to start the day wide awake with my insides feeling great.
  5. Benefit POREfessional:
    This little delightful balm is made to minimize the appearance of pores and is a great foundation before any makeup goes on your skin. Plus it smells delicious – which is always a win.
  6. James Heeley St. Clements:
    James Heeley makes a lot of drool-worthy scents, and this citrus based smell called St. Clements is both invigorating and will wake you up in the AM. Yes to the powers of citrus.
