The start of a new decade calls for a few resolutions to be made to have your best complexion yet! Swap these easy-to-break habits with a routine that’s easy to stick to for healthy and happy skin all year long.

  1. Not using the right products for your skin type. Pay attention to what your skin needs and pick the products that are right for you! Having trouble with dry skin? Look for formulas like our Creamy Fruit Oil Cleanser and Apricot Night Cream that contain naturally hydrating ingredients. For oily/combination skin, use our Clarifying Herbal Astringent and Facial Wash. Don’t forget, oily skin can still get dehydrated! Adding our Maximum Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum to your daily routine can benefit all skin types with much-needed hydration.
  2. Leaving the house without SPF. You’ve heard this one over and over again, but it’s worth repeating! If you still forget to apply SPF before heading out, let 2020 be the year where you break this habit for good. Besides the harmful damage the sun can have on your skin, it can also cause premature wrinkles and discoloration, so protect daily and reapply throughout the day if needed.
  3. Exfoliating every day. Having an exfoliator in your skincare routine is essential for healthy skin health; however, overdoing it can lead to more damage than good. Exfoliating every day can irritate skin, and can even damage the surface layer of your skin. Limit exfoliation to 3 times a week with our Apricot Facial Scrub.
  4. Throwing away your empties in the trash. Resolve to recycle (more) in 2020. Yes, that means your empty skincare bottles, too! All of our products come in recyclable plastic, so be sure to toss them in the correct bin to help reduce waste.
  5. Eating too much junk! While not exactly a skincare habit, incorporating more whole foods can help improve skin’s appearance. For example, foods rich in vitamin C like oranges and papayas help promote collagen production and have antioxidant properties that help fight free radicals. Keep your eye out for these ingredients in some of our products, too!
  6. Going to bed before washing your face. Your skin needs time to recharge at night just as much as your brain does. Cleansing dirt and other impurities away before bed will leave your skin feeling fresher and can prevent breakouts. Plus, you’ll want maximum benefits from your moisturizers and serums, so fresh, clean skin at nighttime is worth the effort. Read our blog post “5-Minute Nighttime Skincare Routine for Your Skin Type” for the easiest and quickest way to get clean before catching your zzz’s!


You may have seen our Hyaluronic Acid Serum around, so we’re here to answer some FAQ’s and give you the low-down on what makes this bottle an absolute skincare must!

Let’s start with the basics. What exactly is hyaluronic acid? Despite the word “acid” in its name, Hyaluronic Acid is actually quite gentle. Don’t let that fool you, it is one of nature’s most powerful moisturizing ingredients. Hyaluronic Acid has become popular in skincare because one molecule can hold up 1,000 times its weight in water! Our body produces hyaluronic acid naturally in order to maintain moisture. It can be found in all parts of your body including your joints, hair, eyes and nerves, but 50% of your body’s hyaluronic acid is in your skin!

Where do you get hyaluronic acid? For a long time, skincare companies were deriving their hyaluronic acid from animal sources, mainly rooster combs… But we are so not about that! Our hyaluronic acid comes from cultured beets and other vegetable sources. Our serum is 100% vegan and cruelty free!

Why can’t I find hyaluronic acid listed in the ingredients? We choose to use Sodium Hyaluronate, the salt molecule from Hyaluronic Acid, in our products. It is a smaller molecule, which means it may absorb deeper and easier into your skin, for maximum benefits!

Why does it come in a blue bottle? We put a lot of love into creating our serum, and we want to make sure it’s well protected. The blue bottle is to prevent oxidation from occurring, which causes the molecules to lose their hydrating superpowers. Be sure to also store in a cool, dark place- the medicine cabinet in your bathroom is perfect!

Who benefits from hyaluronic acid? You! Whether you have dry skin or oily skin, everyone’s skin could use a hyaluronic acid boost. Our serum works to retain moisture in your skin, which plumps up skin and can even help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven tone. It also helps protect the collagen in your skin, promotes elasticity and can make your skin look firmer and more youthful-looking with each use!

The best part? It’s only 24.99 and you only need a few drops with each use! Get yours here!
