MY SUMMER ESSENTIAL CRUELTY FREE BEAUTY ROUTINE FOR GREAT SKIN
Looking for cruelty-free and organic beauty routine that actually works and achieves results? Whether you’re a huge animal lover or you just want a cleaner beauty routine, vegan and organic is the way to go. The ugly truth is that many makeup and beauty brands still test on animals and/or use animal products. But if it’s not safe enough to test on humans, then it shouldn’t be used by humans. Always read the ingredients in your skincare, do your research and look up it's listed ingredients if your unsure. Every product I recommend below is not 100% organic, but they are totally vegan and cruelty-free. Now that’s true beauty.
Now is the time to develop good habits to preserve your youthful glow. Here below are the products I use in my beauty routine.
It's best to wash your face twice a day, but if you can manage only once, do it in the evening: Never sleep in your makeup, and I mean If you can't be bothered to cleanse then at least use natural face wipes to remove your makeup. I use Dr. Goldfaden's multi-tasking hypo-allergenic, pH-balanced cleanser which dissolves impurities and removes dead skin cells and makeup in one simple step. Formulated with Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein to increase skin firmness and retain moisture, and potent botanical extracts to gently cleanse and balance skin without irritation or dryness. Skin is left clean, clear, smooth, and energised.
You might be noticing fine lines or dryness for the first time, so a moisturiser is also essential. More than just a daily moisturizer, I use Dr. Goldfaden’s Vital Boost morning and night which delivers hydration, antioxidant protection and a brightening glow to all skin types. Skin boosting and rejuvenating Vitamin D maximizes the skin's immunity, provides powerful antioxidant protection, improves elasticity and promotes a more youthful complexion. Brightening skin agent, Gooseberry, leaves skin looking dewy, radiant and flawless. Oil-free.
Night Time Treatment Oil
The skin needs moisture and oil to function properly. Oils act as the skin’s lipid barrier, like Glad Wrap, keeping the moisture in. I use my native botanical cell oil at night before I put on my moisteriser. GoldFaden's oil is an anti-aging, non-greasy, golden elixir, treatment which replenishes hydration, improves skin color, tone and boosts radiance. The proprietary blend of 100% pure active botanicals, fruit extracts and natural oil delivers powerful vitamins and nutrients deep into the skin to boost moisture levels and skin cell revitalization. Rich in powerful Omega fatty acids and Vitamins A, C & E, the botanical actives work to diminish the appearance of fine lines, discoloration, inflammation, and reduce pore size. Added powerful oils - Kalahari Oil, Mongongo Oil and Baobab Oil - protect and shield the skin against environmental stresses, support the rejuvenation and renewing of skin cells, improve skin elasticity and promote accelerated skin cell turnover. My skin is left glowing, hydrated and plump.
The one guaranteed to shore up your chances of gorgeous skin in the decades to come? You guessed it: applying sunscreen religiously. You heard me, religiously. To help prevent pre-mature aging I use Dr. Goldfaden’s Sun Visor which is a fast absorbing, oil-free, PABA-free and fragrance-free SPF 30 sunscreen that protects your skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays. This unique product offers dual-action protection by delivering high-level UV filters to help prevent sun damage, fine lines, and dark spots. This advanced, revolutionary, ultralight translucent oil-free, fragrance-free and even smear-free formula is a must for all skin types. It also does not contain nano particles and is compact enough to keep handy in your bag.
Optional extras I use and swear by to give your skin a boost and prevent anti-aging
The skin around the eyes is more fragile, more prone to dryness, and quicker to show age and fatigue. Squinting and constant movement of the eyes also hasten the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and fluids collect under the eyes and cause puffiness and dark circles. Eye creams can address some of these issues.
I use Dr. Goldfaden's advanced brightening eye treatment which is a must-have for the eyes. This powerhouse formula instantly reduces the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. Soy peptide, vitamin K, Rice Bran Extract, Organic Red Tea and Jojoba Oil work together to deliver intense hydration and firmness while ensuring the eye area has a luminous and youthful appearance. Perfect for all skin types.
I recommend using a peel 1-2 times a week. Put your freshest face forward with Dr. Goldfaden’s supercharged Lactic and Multi-Fruit Enzyme exfoliating peel. This non-irritating peel removes dead skin cells to reveal fresh, youthful skin. The unique combination of Lactic acid and Multi-Fruit Enzymes provides a superior rate of skin rejuvenation while reducing the appearance of fine lines, pores, and skin imperfections. With continued my skin became softer, smoother and looks more radiant and youthful with a brighter and more even skin tone.
As we age, the process of cell regeneration slows down. This means that the body is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones. When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. Furthermore, the build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne.
Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy.
Dr. Goldfaden's coveted exfoliator contains powerful ruby crystals that provide immediate cell renewal by polishing away dead surface cells, leaving skin brighter, clearer and younger-looking. Formulated with line-filling Hyaluronic Acid to deliver long-lasting hydration while nourishing Seaweed and Organic Red Tea Extract provide antioxidant protection. Daily use improves the appearance of fine lines, reduces pore size, and leaves healthy, radiant skin. Good for all skin types.
You wouldn’t wash your face without applying a moisturiser, so why not do the same for your hands? Hands are our tools and they allow us to carry out daily tasks in the home, at work and in the garden. But we all too often neglect them, leaving them defenceless to the environment and in poor condition. One of the first places to show any signs of ageing, your hands can easily give the game away if you neglect them. Using a hand cream is the best way to repair and restore damaged hands, ensuring that they not only look younger but feel softer too.
Dr. Goldfaden's progressive hand treatment is a true multi-tasker. Developed to address the unique needs of the hands, this rich, yet fast-absorbing cream helps fade dark spots and reduces the appearance of fine lines while instantly smoothing and plumping skin. Breakthrough anti-aging ingredients CoQ10, niacinimide, glucosamine and retinol along with potent hyaluronic acid work to provide skin with a more youthful appearance leaving hands nourished, protected and supple.
