Natural Skincare: Palmer's Coconut Oil Line
I'm not sure when it happened, but it did. Suddenly, as I hit my late twenties, I've become a morning person. I actually look forward to that first cup of coffee & quiet time before the hustle & bustle of a big day. The other thing that's happened? I've been paying serious attention to my skincare routine and self-care.
I was thrilled when Palmer's asked me to join them for a 7-Day Challenge to a More Luminous You. With the start of spring it gave me an opportunity to start pairing some healthy habits alongside my morning & evening skin care with their new Coconut Oil Formula line of products. I loved tracking my progress to hold myself accountable. I think what's important to remember is that wellness means different things to different people. For me, it's a win to have an unplugged evening before bed or starting the day with a 5 minute meditation. All of those little things are impactful!
I've almost entirely converted any of my skincare & beauty products to natural options. Thankfully, Palmer's new line of Coconut Oil Formula products are free of parabens, mineral oil, sulfates, phthalates, GMOs, and harsh chemicals. I even shared a fresh faced selfie! Be sure to check out the details to win a set of your own, because I'm teaming up with Palmer's for a giveaway!
Here's a breakdown of the Palmer's products I tried & the best times to use them for a skincare routine. I'm obsessed with all things coconut scented, because it reminds me of a tropical getaway!
Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Products
CLEANSE |Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm: Just add warm water and work this balm into a luscious lather to remove dirt or make-up. I used this product first in the morning and evening.
EXFOLIATE | Coconut Oil Facial Scrub: Depending on your skin type, you probably only need to exfoliate once a week. This scrub contains raw coconut sugar to polish and exfoliate your face.
MASK | Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask: I find I have more patience for this in the evening and usually will put one one while watching Netflix with Kyle! Leave it on for 10 minutes to saturate and moisturize your skin.
LUMINIZE | Coconut Facial Oil: Use it on its own or add a couple of drops to your moisturizer. This essential oil packed oil is perfect on days your skin is feeling drier than normal and doesn't make it greasy.
MOISTURIZE | Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer: This moisturizer is silky smooth and left my skin feeling hydrated and balanced all day. Use this as the last step in either the morning or evening as part of your skincare routine.
I can honestly tell you I never thought I'd be sharing a completely bare-faced selfie on the blog, but my skin really does feel so good after sticking to a skincare routine for a week. One thing I learned from the challenge is that I'm 10 x more likely to follow through with something if I write it down; from eating more healthily to incorporating a more mindful approach to wellness. I'm going to get in the habit of writing more down in my planner!
