On the real, am I the only one who sometimes feels like taking good care of your skin is a drag? I know it’s important, but before I had products that I loved, I dreaded getting my skin ready for bed. The good news is, I found the absolute perfect products that actually get me excited about my skincare routine! Even better, they’ve worked wonders on my skin.
So because I don’t believe in keeping a good thing under wraps, I’m sharing my obsession with Akar Skin and the steps I take each night before bed with their incredible products.
Akar Skin is a Tibetan-inspired beauty brand that is dedicated to caring for your skin with natural ingredients. When you really think about it, why would you want to put synthetic ingredients on your skin?!
I start out my nightly skincare routine by spraying my face evenly with the Akar Skin Lush Balance Toning Mist. Its main ingredient is rose water, and all of the ingredients are organic so it smells really fresh and feels super invigorating. I love using this every night. and it’s so great that I use it every morning as well.
Once my skin is damp from the toner, the next step I take is to apply 4 drops of the Desert Rescue Face Oil which has worked miracles on my skin (seriously!). Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, my dry skin has never felt better since using this oil every night before bed. The oil is moisturizing, without feeling too heavy or greasy. It also keeps my skin hydrated overnight so I’m ready with a fresh face to put on makeup in the morning. Oh, and if you have oily or combination skin the Akar equivalent to the Desert Rescue Face Oil is their Neat Remedy Face Oil.
My favorite part of the routine is putting two drops of the Akar Nutrient Boost Eye Serum around my eye area. I’ve never had much interest in taking care of my eye area, however I know it is important to a skin care routine… and to start at a young age! This serum is designed to reduce puffiness, dryness, dark circles and wrinkles — I mean, how could you not need this!? I’ve noticed a significant decrease in puffiness in the mornings (it came in handy during allergy season) from this goodness.
I am definitely a lip product hoarder; I can’t go anywhere without a lip balm, because I feel like my lips are constantly chapped. Plus, lip care is super important. And surprise, surprise: Akar has the absolute best product for your lips with the Mini Care Lip Butter. This product is different from other lip balms because it is free of petroleum, which gives a false sense of hydration and suffocates the lips, which makes your lips drier! I can definitely feel a difference in the hydration of my lips over the time that I’ve been using it, and I’m not constantly applying lip balm like I used to.
If you are looking to freshen up your skincare routine with natural ingredients and you want a super luxurious skincare routine that really works to hop into bed with each night, you need to get your hands on these Akar Skin products ASAP.
