Non-Toxic Skincare for Women - January Spotlight

Updated: Nov 15, 2023

Skincare can be confusing + overwhelming. The ingredients, the texture, the price +so on. I've tested out quite a bit of skincare products, specifically NON-TOXIC skin care + I'd love to share with you my thoughts.

A question I had in the beginning of learning more about skin care was:

"What is the difference between serums and oils?"

  • Serums go on before oils because they are lighter. Always apply light to heavy for optimum absorption.

  • Serums contain concentrated amounts of corrective ingredients based on your needs.

  • Vitamin C serums are great for brightening, Hyaluronic serums are great for hydration, AHA/BHA serums are great for texture + tone.

  • An oil at the end seals your skincare in + prevents moisture from leaving the skin.
