Asking a natural beauty lover to pick her favorite skincare product is like asking a mother to pick her favorite child. We love them all, but let’s be real; from time to time one wins an extra special place in our hearts.
Our wellness community is brimming with beautiful women with stunning skin. These girls get their glow from a holistic wellness lifestyle — and the use of a few power products and tools.
We asked a handful of our fave ladies to share the natural skincare product, service or lifestyle tip that’s really made a difference in their skin lately. Here’s what they shared…Suzanne Hall | Editor In Chief of The Chalkboard Mag
Using a rose crystal gua sha to gently massage lymphatic points on the face and neck has been a gamechanger for my skin’s circulation. The tool is so simple that I was skeptical at first. I don’t like the idea of using more intense treatments like microcurrent daily (I use weekly instead), but simple outward motions with the crystal provide a daily depuff in the morning. Learn how to use it with one of our favorite facialists here.

One product that has really livened up my complexion is face oil. I wear as a barrier for makeup before applying concealer as well as before bed so my skin has a “drink of water” while I sleep. Moisture, moisture, moisture! One natural oil I really love is cocokind Organic Chia Facial Oil.

Bone broth! Nothing revolutionary, it’s really age-old science. I’ve consistently incorporated healing both broths filled with incredible adaptogens like reishi, chaga, and ashwagandha and more, and have seen such an improvement in the overall glow of my face and overall health. I drink it in the mornings instead of coffee, throughout the day as a snack, and in the evenings as a nightcap. It’s nourishing from the inside out and I really foresee myself keeping bone broth a staple in my diet for the rest of my days.Nitsa Citrine | Creative Director of Sun Potion
MAKE’s Marble Eraser “Gua Sha” tool has been amazing for my skin. It offers a potent, minimal, meditative take on self-care and I am falling in love with the shifts it has made in my skin and overall energy (after just a few weeks of use!).

Hydration is the key to youthful, glowing skin but most bottled and tap water has been stripped of naturally-occurring, hydrating minerals. To ensure proper hydration, I add 5 droppers full of Sakara’s Beauty Water Concentrate — which includes silica & 72 essential micronutrients — to a large glass of filtered water as soon as I wake up and again before bed.

As a Holistic Healthcare Practitioner, I have been on the hunt for anti-aging services that are non-toxic and don’t involve injecting chemicals in my body. I came across PRP, otherwise known as platelet-rich-plasma. I’ve noticed that as I get older I lose volume in my face and my skin texture just isn’t the same. With just one PRP treatment at Facile Skin, my youthful glow was restored and my skin was completely resurfaced. To begin they drew blood from my arm and spun it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich-plasma. They then injected my PRP back into my face and then used the other half of the serum to microneedle into my skin surface. Since it’s my own plasma and nothing else, the treatment is completely non-toxic. It’s not the most comfortable experience and there is downtime, but it was worth every second.

The product that really changed my skin is retinol. Lately I’m obsessed with Allies of Skin 1A Overnight Mask. The overnight treatment contains a blend of reparative actives like antioxidants, ginseng and a form of encapsulated Retinol, plus ultra-hydrating ingredients that work like magic.
