Founder Favourites

Here is an ongoing list of my favourites in terms of beauty & wellness items. I will keep this list updated as my routine changes. Enjoy! xo Jacqueline 

Skincare

You have two chances in your day to improve your skin, so don't miss the opportunity to create a balanced beauty routine that works for you! Try to use as many clean/natural products as you can, it will make a difference. Every step you do on your face should be done on your neck and decolletage as well. 

Gua Sha

I’m trying to make this a new habit, so right when I wake up, even before I make my tea and write in my journal, I’ll take my Gua Sha (Métange Beauty), spray my face with rose water, apply my Green Goddess Glow Oil (Sarisha Beauty) and proceed with giving myself a facial. I hope this is a habit I can continue on the daily. 

Cleansing

Very essential step and maybe one of the most underrated. You want to be properly cleansing and figuring out what type of cleansers work best for you. You do not want to strip your skin of it’s natural oils and destroy your skin’s barrier with harsh cleansers or exfoliating too often. This is why I love oil cleansing and notice a huge difference when using this method. If it’s after a night that I’m wearing more makeup I might follow with a gentle gel cleanser, but typically I will only use an oil cleanser and a warm facial towel for mornings and evenings.

Can also start the day skipping cleansing and going right into a 10 minute mask. Masks are the most POTENT when first activated, so it's a great idea to choose a clay mask and mix it yourself. If you don't like the idea of mixing a mask each time, make a little extra and keep it in a glass jar left in the fridge for a few days. Once the mask starts to harden, gently rinse off with a warm facial towel.

Dusing summer months I try to stick to an SPF tinted lip balm. Currently using Kiel’s Butterstick Lip Treatment SPF 25 (in Touch of Berry or Pop of Peony) 

don't apply lipstick directly on your lips. For a more natural look, apply to your finger and blend into your lips. It’ll look like a natural tint rather than a bold lip.

Lifestyle 

-Eat whole foods, cut out processed foods + refined sugars (even try to minimize the amount of natural sugars per day). 

-Drink a lot of water + tea, minimize caffeine intake, specifically coffee if you have acne-prone skin. 

-Gut health is so important for healthy skin. Do research on how to improve your gut health and see if you can include some of these ideas into your routine

-Conditions that may cause acne: leaky-gut, candida overgrowth, food intolerances 

-While alcohol doesn't really help your skin, if you are drinking, the best would be a dry red wine (Pinot Noir for example) for the antioxidants and polyphenols
