We should all know by now that skincare is for everyone, no matter your gender, age, or race! Although, we understand it can be daunting to know where to start, especially with the sheer volume of products out there.
Fret not, sweet newbie! If you’re at the beginning of your natural skincare journey, we’ve made a handy guide to help you create your very own no-fuss routine. Read on to find out which RR products can work best for your skin, while learning how to get your routine done in 4 simple steps!
Step 1: Cleanse
Pure Castile Face Wash
Start off your routine by cleansing with our ultra-gentle Pure Castile Face Wash. Our skin thrives on simple, natural ingredients, which is why this cleanser only contains water and saponified extra virgin olive oil. It can effectively cleanse away dirt and impurities, while still retaining your skin’s natural moisture.
Our Pure Castile Face Wash is formulated to work for most skin types, including sensitive skin!
Cleanser Directions: Apply 1-2 pumps into your palm and massage gently onto wet skin. Rinse off after 30-60 seconds. Use twice a day.
Step 2: Tone
Toner is a fast-penetrating liquid that delivers skin a quick hit of hydration. They also work as an astringent to help tighten up pores and balance your skin’s PH levels. We have two types of Face Mists that function as toners:
Neroli Face Mist
Best for oily, acne prone skin.
Extracted from the flowers of bitter orange trees, this face mist is great for those who have oily or acne prone skin. Neroli contains antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that help to promote smoother, clearer. You can also mattify any excess shine, thanks to its sebum-regulating properties.
Damask Face Mist
Best for dry, sensitive skin.
Made from high quality Damask roses grown in Bulgaria, this hydrosol is ideal for those with dry or dehydrated skin types. Rosewater has long been known for its rejuvenating and hydration properties, while also being incredibly effective for soothing redness and irritation. If you’re prone to dryness, this face mist is a great way to keep your skin glowing and moisturised.
Face Mist Directions: While holding the bottle at arms length, spray 3-4 spritzes onto your face. Use twice daily before moisturising, or use whenever you wish to refresh your skin.
Step 3: Moisturise
Did you know our face oils can replace traditional moisturisers? Keep your routine minimal yet effective with these nourishing plant oils. If you’ve heard those (very unfair) rumours about applying oils to your skin, we recommend you read this blog post to help address any misconceptions.
We’ve got a wide range of choices, so here’s the quick lowdown on what our all-natural oils do best:
Best for sensitive, oily, oily to combination skin types
This proudly pink oil is formulated to be extra gentle on sensitive and oily skin types. Its key ingredient, Beetroot Squalane, mimics the skin’s natural sebum and helps regulate oil production, and is even safe for those who experience fungal acne. Its weightless texture sinks into the skin like a dream, while providing long lasting hydration throughout the day. The addition of Gromwell Extract also gives this blend antibacterial and antiviral properties, which aid in combating acne bacteria and soothing signs of irritation.
Best for dehydrated, dry, dry to combination, and mature skin types
Get skin-beautifying benefits, while also enjoying some high quality aromatherapy from its sweetly floral and herbaceous scent. This botanical blend is best for those with dry, dehydrated skin types, as its star ingredient, Prickly Pear oil, is able to deeply hydrate the skin. The addition of plant oils high in actives like Lavender and German Chamomile also help to treat mild acne, signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, and existing sun damage.
Argan Pure Oil
Best for oily, oily to combination, acne-prone, and congested skin types.
Say “Sayonara!” to that oily sheen. Our Argan Pure Oil has powerful sebum-regulating properties to drastically reduce shine, while also keeping your pores clear of gunk. An excellent AM moisturiser for those with congested, acne-prone skin, as this oil is lightweight, hydrating, and can prevent future breakouts. Argan also contains high levels of Vitamin E, which help to improve skin elasticity and protects your skin from free radicals.
