Active Beauty: Springtime's Best Bets

Pared down skin routines-who has the time-it's PRACTICALLY SUMMER- demand multi-tasking no fuss skincare products.

Some favs...part one:
Micellar Water's popularity from a Parisian's answer to skin cleansing instead of using French city's hard water has now evolved into versions amped up with ingredients for targeted benefits. From natural brand DERMA-E  a new Vitamin C collection-includes the ideal warm weather version-the Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water -gives thorough skin cleansing (via liquid dampened cotton ball)-dissolving water-resistant makeup and impurities that includes sweat--leaving a fresh feeling. Since facial skin feels replenished not striped,  (Rooibus has polyphenols-supposed to support  youthful skin -similar to grapes, grape seeds and maritime tree bark, Probiotics.anti aging properties))--normal to oily skin can skip the moisturizer after using this product-especially during the warm temps. Added plus: as with the entire DERMA-E collection-the Vitamin C collection is Eco-Ethical: Vegan, GMO-free, and cruelty free. 
ALASTIN SKINCARE HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 36-uses physical sun blocking ingredients Titanium Dioxide 8.9% and Zinc Oxide 3.4% -non-irritating and long lasting, sun blocker-but additionally, amps up this lightweight-liquidy-ish easy to apply facial sunscreen with powerhouse skin ingredients-including a slew of anti-oxidants, PLUS Thermus Thermophilus Ferment (counteracts IR-generated free radicals-powerful skin DNA repairer), and Asteriscus Graveolens (flower/fruit/leaf/stem extract)-helps prevent air pollution induced oxidative stress-new buzzy focus of high end skin care lines.Except ALASTIN Skincare-packs it all -in-one tinted formula. We feel we can skip a lot of layers of skin care products-using this on cleansed skin. FYI somewhat sheer effect-no-makeup look-fits most skin color types light-medium.

GODDESS GARDEN Organics sunscreens are natural-but not USDA Certified Organic... one will NOT find chemicals like oxybenzone in their products. The new moisturizing lip protections-are USDA organic though (YAY)- in fun flavors/scents-like raspberry, orange vanilla, and lavender mint-protects vulnerable lips via physical block SPF30 -reef safe cruelty and beeswax free and non-GMO. And easily found too at value prices. $3.99
