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!

“But, it’s sooo expensive…” That’s the #1 thing we hear when someone considers making the switch to green beauty. Guess what- there are affordable options!

Adding more natural alternatives to your everyday skincare routine can be much less expensive and easier than you may think. With the natural beauty industry growing tremendously in the past decade, economical green beauty products are very available and accessible.

Earth Science jumped on that bandwagon over 35 years ago. Since our founding, we’ve made it a priority to make our products affordable because we believe everyone should have access to clean, more natural products. All of ours are paraben free, cruelty free and contain zero artificial colors, like our everyday Clarifying Facial Wash, which is just $10.99! In fact, we have ten different facial care products priced under $11.00 each.

Our products are also produced in California using sustainable resources and recyclable packaging. We’ve made sure you can get all this without breaking the bank.

So, that’s it! No more excuses. Toss out your skincare products with harmful chemicals, synthetic fragrances, and parabens, and make the switch to green beauty.

Check out our Essentials Collection (look for the orange label) for some of our best-selling and most affordable products!

The start of a new school year is here! For skin that’s fresh for fall, keep your skincare routine simple: Exfoliate. Cleanse. Tone. Moisturize.

1) Exfoliator

Start your year—and every day—refreshed. Best-selling Apricot Gentle Facial Scrub is kind enough on skin for daily use. In the morning, a small amount helps slough away dead skin cells from overnight cell turnover. With apricot kernel oil, walnut shell powder and oat kernel flour to reveal soft, smooth skin.

2) Cleanser

Our daily cleansers for oily and dry skin types are head of the class. Clarifying Facial Wash combats oil without drying, thanks to soothing aloe vera and extracts of cucumber, sea kelp, birch bark and lavender. Creamy Fruit Oil Cleanser removes makeup and moisturizes as it cleans with avocado, apricot kernel and sweet almond oils rich in vitamin E.

3) Toner

In our book, moisturizer prep is just as important as exam prep! Aloe Vera Complexion Toner & Freshener eliminates leftover dirt and makeup while cooling, hydrating and revitalizing skin—all without alcohol, a common ingredient in toner that actually dries skin. For combination/oily types, Clarifying Herbal Astringent gently removes soap residue and dead skin with sulfur and zinc for added oil reduction.

4) Moisturizer

Oil-free, fragrance-free, with SPF, ceramide-enriched, you name it—our variety of facial moisturizers will help you face a new school year, no matter your skin type. Every Earth Science moisturizer or cream is packed with hyaluronic acid, a natural moisturizing component of human skin that can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Superior at maintaining skin’s hydration, elasticity and suppleness, ours is sourced from cultured sugar beets or other vegetable sources (never from animals!).

And, there you have it. Clean slate, clean skin!

Meet the Clarifying Facial Wash from Earth Science. Designed with sensitive skin in mind, it’s incredibly mild, yet still incredibly effective at removing oil, bacteria and residue that can cause breakouts. Your skin never feels dry or stressed after using the Clarifying Facial Wash.

The addition of hyaluronic acid helps to make this facial wash particularly effective in making your skin look and feel younger, but you know, in a balanced, naturally glowing kind of way. There are no overpowering odors or chemical scents that make you feel like you’re trapped inside of a perfume bottle.

The Clarifying Facial Wash is gentle enough to use morning and night and doesn’t leave your skin feeling slimy or sticky like a lot of those so-called acne washes on the market. Quite the contrary. Your skin actually feels smoother, even if you’re still working through an acne breakout. And it helps the skin to heal quicker too, with less redness and scarring. It’s a mild wash you can use daily, without the risk of over-drying your skin and causing more breakouts—and definitely without the fuss.
