As you head back to the city from your summer escapades, prep your sun-kissed skin with these vegan skincare lines that offer superior reparation and hydration:
Ametrine Organic Face Scrub is a new USDA-certified organic and cruelty-free, plant-based vegetarian and vegan skincare line, which is not only super healing for the skin, but comes in plastic-free packaging that is 100% recyclable Miron glass. Made in the Netherlands, this glass is designed to preserve the alkalinity and freshness of the ingredients. Follow up with the Facial Toner for Normal to Oily Skin with organic vodka, apple cider, sweet orange oil and more fabulous ingredients for fresh-looking skin. Find these elixirs at https://ametrineorganics.com/collections/view-all/products/organic-facial-scrub.
Prefer a light moisturizer to a heavier one? Then opt for Save’s Rejuvenating Moisturizer. A complex of prebiotics and probiotics support your microbiome, the natural microbial flora found on the skin surface. Try Save’s Ultra Light Moisturizer, too. So light and gentle, this is immediately absorbed by the skin, leaving it wonderfully hydrated. Made for all skin types — and especially for sensitive skin — Save is free of parabens, SLS, sulfates, mineral oils, GMOs, fragrance, colors, alcohols, and essential oils. Some of the 98% natural ingredients include bamboo bioferment, a vegan alternative to silicone. Order it at https://saveskincare.com/products/ultra-light-moisturizer.
You need a powerful serum to both repair summer damage, and protect your skin from city pollution. The Algenist AA Barrier Serum contains sustainably-produced patented alguronic acid from algae to fortify the skin barrier and help it defend itself against urban dust, including particulate matter, minuscule particles of soot and dirt, ozone (O3) and other grime. Phloretin, a powerful antioxidant and penetration enhancer derived from apple and apple bark, is also included in the formula as well as peptides & amino acids. Check it out at https://www.sephora.com or visit your local Sephora store.
One of the most revealing zones for summer skin damage is the neck. Be sure to nourish this area with an ultra-effective neck cream, such as the ELEVATE Firming and Lifting Neck Cream ELEVATE by Algenist. This unique vegan formulation combines alguronic acid, vegan celery protein, and a peptide complex to firm and tighten the skin. Your neck and decolleté appears less lined and more youthful.
