A Beauty Diary: The Ultimate Clean Regime with Credo.

A Beauty Diary: The Ultimate Clean Regime with Credo., NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED, Skincare, Beauty, Organic Skincare, Credo Beauty, RMS, Herbivore Botanicals, Acure Organics, One Love Organics, Kypris, SPF, Daily Sunscreen, Kjear Weis, Natural Beauty.It’s no secret that I’m a full fledged skincare enthusiast. I’ve always been the girl who’s shelves play host to bottles, and jars threatening to tumble off for lack of space. I write about it a lot. In fact recently I shared my home-made weapon for keeping my skin glowing in abundance. The lesson here though is, not all effective skincare can be whipped up in my kitchen (or if it can I definitely don’t have the time) — it can however be “totally clean”.

Vérité partnered with Credo to bring you an intrinsic look into my daily regime, and if I’m being totally transparent, now’s the perfect time. Since moving myself, and the business to LA over a year ago my skin has changed in a lot of ways. Blame pollution, blame the dry heat, blame excessive sun, blame the harsh water — all these elements have come into play in leaving my pores rough, and my exterior dehydrated. Thus, I’ve had to do some serious recon on my daily routine in order to make the edits needed to also adapt to this new land. I turn to Credo’s product range as all its brands have been carefully selected for their organic, clean, or natural ingredients. You may have noticed we almost only ever cover clean products on Vérité, so this is the biggest seller for me.

First thing’s first, my morning skin regime is as slow, and indulgent as my pour over. After brushing my teeth, I have gotten into the habit of using a copper tongue scraper (you can purchase these at Whole Foods or on Amazon) to rid my body of toxins that build up overnight. I’m telling you this unsavory part of my method because these toxins can come back out through your skin in the form of acne if you’re not careful! I then swish my mouth with water and a few drops of Clove Oil for a handful of minutes. This is not only great for white teeth and mouth health — but has been said to be like a form of oil pulling which can be great for your skin’s glow! I’ve always held the belief that (for my skin at least) overly cleansing can strip skin of the natural oils it produces to repair itself. When I wake I simply splash my face with water, sans product. Next, I use One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm to re-hydrate areas in need. With the tip of my finger I dab it all around my eyes, and lips. While this sets in I slather my entire being in RMS Raw Coconut Cream. Coconut oil is possibly my biggest beauty fix found to date. I use it for everything from makeup remover (more on this later), to hair mask.

Next, is the most important step of my whole day — SPF. I’m often running errands in the harsh LA light, so this step is one I take very seriously. I use Kypris Heliotropic SPF 30 Treatment Primer on my face, neck, chest, and on the back of my hands for optimum protection. Trust me when I say I’ve tried every SPF under the sun, and this one is by far my favorite.A Beauty Diary: The Ultimate Clean Regime with Credo., NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED, Skincare, Beauty, Organic Skincare, Credo Beauty, RMS, Herbivore Botanicals, Acure Organics, One Love Organics, Kypris, SPF, Daily Sunscreen, Kjear Weis, Natural Beauty.

I’ve never been much of a makeup girl so this part of getting ready is easy. My overall vibe is: I’ve just been riding the Manhattan subway in the dead of summer — dewy and flushed. I achieve this by brushing up my brows, applying a few flutters of mascara, and then laying on the glow-inducers. I can’t go without my RMS Living Luminizer and Kjaer Weis Dazzling Bronzer. The first is more of a highlighter, second a bronzer, but when at work together they create pure magic. Using my fingers I place these two consecutively on the bridge of my nose, along the protrusions of my cheekbones, below and above my brow, and in the inner corners of my eyes — anywhere you would want to define your angles. The sexiest place you can apply these is sitting right on top of the cupid’s bow of your top lip. For special occasions I’ll go for a glossy eye — again applying RMS Raw Coconut Cream in a thick layer on my eyelids.A Beauty Diary: The Ultimate Clean Regime with Credo., NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED, Skincare, Beauty, Organic Skincare, Credo Beauty, RMS, Herbivore Botanicals, Acure Organics, One Love Organics, Kypris, SPF, Daily Sunscreen, Kjear Weis, Natural Beauty.

On any given evening, I can be seen smothered in some kind of skin treatment. First I’ll wipe the day off my face with Acure Coconut + Argan Oil Cleansing Towlettes, then rinse with water. I take my time with this making sure I get all the pollution out of my pores. For days when I might have tougher makeup to wipe off, I use raw coconut oil and a wipe. Next is a step I’ve adapted since the relocation — getting so much more sun I find it important to give my skin some extra help with brightening. Sun can leave its caresses all over us in the form of dark markings or discoloration. To even everything out, I use Herbivore Botanicals Brighten Mask (smells like a tropical cocktail, big plus) a few times a week. Once or twice a week, after my brightening, I will mix up this mask and let sit for about 15 minutes.A Beauty Diary: The Ultimate Clean Regime with Credo., NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED, Skincare, Beauty, Organic Skincare, Credo Beauty, RMS, Herbivore Botanicals, Acure Organics, One Love Organics, Kypris, SPF, Daily Sunscreen, Kjear Weis, Natural Beauty.

Once I have successfully given my face all the love it can soak in, I turn yet again to One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm, before moisturizing for a night of rest. I’ve been really into skin oils so I have a variety to choose from, but I love Herbivore Botanicals facial oils. Lastly before crawling into bed, I wipe on a heavy gob of lip moisturizer, and massage both temples with sesame seed oil for a calm sleep with a bottle of water at my side. A Beauty Diary: The Ultimate Clean Regime with Credo., NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED, Skincare, Beauty, Organic Skincare, Credo Beauty, RMS, Herbivore Botanicals, Acure Organics, One Love Organics, Kypris, SPF, Daily Sunscreen, Kjear Weis, Natural Beauty.

Skincare, Beauty, Clean Beauty Products, Herbivore Botanicals, Earth Tu Face, RMS Beauty, Keys, Spring - Verite Published

The Femmes of Vérité believes in a simple, yet effective beauty regime. As we’ve mentioned here, we cringe at the thought of hefting around too much baggage. That being said, we also believe in transitioning your routine with the change of seasons, just as you would your wardrobe. Just the smallest of updates can replenish your skin of what it may have lost during those heavy winter chills, and keep it from freaking out as the weather shifts drastically over the next few months. Keep reading for a few of our absolute, without a doubt, skin savers.

Skincare, Beauty, Clean Beauty Products, Herbivore Botanicals, Earth Tu Face, RMS Beauty, Keys, Spring - Verite PublishedHerbivore Botanicals Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask
Before you do anything else to upgrade your skin pre-spring, you must rid it of the impurities it has been hiding under. Herbivore Botanicals latest will do just the trick. It has the most brilliant of exotic ingredients to transport you to a far off place, while you cleanse, clean, and prep your skin for the products to come.

Keys Solar RX Moisturizer SPF 30+
We cannot strain more the importance of finding a good SPF moisturizer to use on the daily. While you are spending more time outside than you may during the colder months, this SPF has got you covered. Not too oily, and hypoallergenic, it pairs nicely under makeup.

RMS Master Mixer

When we found RMS Beauty, we found a soul mate. This beauty tool is one that will deliver spring even if your weather is lagging. Its rose gold tone compliments any and all complexions when placed carefully on faces angles (they have the most helpful video for such things). It can also be mixed with any other makeup in your bag to bring it to life.

Heritage Store Rose Petals Rosewater 8 oz w/ Atomizer

We have a huge crush on any kind of rose infused product (you can find our top favorite picks here), but this one is a quickest, most budget friendly pick-me-up when it comes to reviving skin. Throw it in your purse and spritz anytime of day for moisture, acne control, and anxiety relief.

Earth Tu Face Coconut Body Butter

The days get longer, warmer, and we want to bare those limbs that have been wrapped up so diligently the last few months. Earth Tu Face’s Coconut Body Butter is the lushest, plentiful solution for awakening skin’s glisten.

Here are a few more ways you can transition your life to spring.

Full Moon Ritual | A Guide

Moon, Ceremony, Women, Health, Wellness, Moon Child, New Age, Full Moon, Ritual, Beauty, Cleansing, Shop, Products
The full moon — a symbol of conclusion and rebirth, finality and a new beginning. Each month as the laden moon rises, we feel compelled to create ritual around its arrival and departure. We have found it also to be a symbol for femininity, in a way we feel that it is our earthly representation. As fascinated as we are with our celestial guardian we can’t help but be compelled by the lunar cycles. The moon is synced with our path as women, and when it completes its cycle it is a chance for us to celebrate intentions, successes, and what is to come.
Across many cultures and traditions these ceremonies have taken place to embrace renewal and cleanse the parts of our lives that are hindering us. As we take on our own version of this lunar affair, we begin by lighting candles and incenses that represent the parts of our lives we want to shift.
Vérité’s Full Moon Ritual | Beneath the months final moon forage the below, and follow the steps of worship.
In a notebook, you can keep what has burdened you through the month, and what you would like to achieve in the next.
Crystals such as the clear quartz lend clarity to your ceremony, a black tourmaline as protection from negative energy, and for those seeking love — a rose quartz.
We accept this nightfall as a chance to pamper our bodies & minds — one must not forget to lay beneath the moon and accept what it may be able to give.
