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.

Our Summer 2017 Round-Up of The Best SPF Products You Need Now!

Our Summer 2017 Round-Up of The Best SPF Products You Need Now! NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED --- SPF, Skincare, Beauty, Clean Beauty Products, Sunscreen, The Best Sunscreen, Anti-Aging, Preventative Beauty, Preventative Skincare, Violet Grey, Credo Beauty, Glossier, Aquaphore, Aveda, Haircare.… When we say you need them now, we basically mean before the sun comes up tomorrow! Summer 2017 is already kicking off with some steamy days, and some exciting sunscreen moments. The launch of Glossier’s self-proclaimed ‘sunscreen that doesn’t suck’ got us talking about our favorite sun protectors. So before you go chasing that sunrise, get educated with our round-up of the best SPF products, from lip protectants, to sunscreen for your hair. Go ahead, throw these in your shopping cart rn!

Eau Thermal Avène Antirougeures Day Redness Relief Soothing Cream SPF 25
It’s what the French girls wear… or at least that’s what Violet Grey tells us (and we will literally believe anything they say). Not only does it prevent further redness but it also helps repair any damage that already exists. This SPF is to be included in your morning routine — after you sip your pour over, and before you apply your makeup. C’est bon! We swear.

Kari Gran Three Sixty Five SPF 28
You need a product that is UVA and UVB resilient to keep your skin looking young and fresh. Kari Gran’s serum is brimming with clean ingredients that will ensure your derm. is in the best hands. If you are more a fan of a gel serum than a cream, this one’s for you!

Glossier Invisible Shield SPF 35
You’ve surely heard that Glossier joined in the SPF game, and we welcome with open arms. Reasons to love include the fact that it is not the white layer we are used to wiping on, but a clear gel formula that sits transparently on your skin. It also acts as a shield to pollution, and harmful elements.Our Summer 2017 Round-Up of The Best SPF Products You Need Now! NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED --- SPF, Skincare, Beauty, Clean Beauty Products, Sunscreen, The Best Sunscreen, Anti-Aging, Preventative Beauty, Preventative Skincare, Violet Grey, Credo Beauty, Glossier, Aquaphore, Aveda, Haircare.

L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Facial Oil SPF 30
We are hardly quiet about our obsession with facial oils. Our bathroom shelves are littered with all shapes and sizes, but this one stands alone in its ability to guard. Mixing eight essential oils with an SPF 30 is the perfect morning rub down your pores need. Have no fear, it’s grease clear!

Aquaphore Lip Protectant + Sunscreen

Aquaphore is practically a religion in these parts. When we stumbled across the lip protectant + sunscreen (SPF 30 that is), we nearly had an existential crisis — what is life? We’ve recovered and suggest you keep a tube of these in each of your purses. Lips are such magnets for itty-bitty wrinkles that can be caused by harsh exposure, and a lack of moisture. Two birds, one magical tube.

Suntegrity Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 for Body

While our faces seem to take top priority, we must not forget the ultra-sensitive skin such as our décolletage and that thin skin on the backs of our hands. A body SPF isn’t a bad idea for those of us in geographically-clothing-oposed areas of the world. Suntegirty is great because it’s non-greasy, Paraben, Phthalate and Mineral Oil Free.

Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil

The most overlooked place that sun can get its harmful little grasp on us is our scalp! Those rays can just as easily damage our tresses as it can our pores, so be sure to spritz some of this Aveda sun care when exposing to heat to scare off dryness, and breakage.

Clean SPF’s You Need To Buy This Summer To Protect That Pretty Skin!

Clean SPF's You Need To Buy This Summer - Verite Published, SPF, Summer, Skincare

It is undeniable that our big and beautiful central star that our globe revolves around is increasingly becoming very powerful. The rays that shine down, those we love so much, that have the ability to turn our frowns upside down, are stronger than they once used to be due to the decreasing protection from our ozone layer. Therefore, our skin is becoming more susceptible the effects of the ultraviolet rays. There has been increasing concern of the toxicity from the chemicals in many sunscreens on our shelves, some even arguing that we are better off letting our skin get lobster red than having sunscreen soak into our skin and impede our bodies internally. But we are opting out of both of these options and taking a different approach that allows us to adore the sensual touch of the sun while protecting our largest organ — our skin. Here is our list of safe SPFs that you can lather up to your heart’s content.

Raw Elements:

We recommend this one for the water sport fanatics who need a thick layer of protection. The consistency is a little on the muddy side but it is great if you are not the type who remembers to reapply throughout the day. Surfer approved.

Keys Solar Rx:

This product is ideal for your everyday chest and arms. If you are planning on spending the day in the sun, running errands or strolling the farmer’s market, this is perfect. It acts as a moisturizer as well as a SPF, so your skin will stay hydrated and protected.

High Vibe Sunscreen:

This SPF lotion is our ideal for lounging on the beach or by the pool. Because this product contains many soothing skin oils, such as tea tree, apricot and sweet almond oil, the application it super silky and smooth, leaving the skin very soft. It doesn’t have the sticky feel that many sunscreens leave your skin feeling.

Etla MD:

As our face is exposed to the sun at all times when outdoors, we are anal and quite regimented when it comes to applying SPF to this part our body. This product is great for everyday use. The ingredients are cautious that many of us have more sensitive skin or acne prone on our visage, so they are have created a product that will combat sun but not clog our pores.
