How adorable is Britanie Faith? We’re so inspired by this green beauty blogger’s commitment to safer products and love that her approach to holistic self-care feels like the pampering it should be. Her mission to “cultivate natural beauty from the inside out” is one we 100% relate to – as are some of the specific obsessions she’s sharing below (face oils and Sun Potion? Every damn day).
Britanie’s Green Goddess Guide is full of prettying products and routines we adore and even a few unfamiliar ones we can’t wait to try: From weekly DIY manuka honey masks (already on it!) to an unexpected tip on why we should use jojoba before and after showering. If you need a quick place to start, scroll down to the bottom for a beauty smoothie recipe that’s so far up our alley we can’t believe we’re not literally sipping it right now…
Can’t travel without…
In a pinch I…
Always curl my lashes, apply a bit of concealer under my eyes and on any areas of redness and apply a tinted lip balm.
Always in my evening clutch:
Jane Iredale Pressed Powder compact, travel-size version of the RL Linden Thousand Petal Beautifying Mist, Modern Minerals B of Love Lipgloss, Lina Hanson Satori Perfume Oil.
Obsession of the moment:
Right now I am obsessed with specific ingredients. For instance, I am in love with chia oil, black cumin and helichrysum – and I have been a little obsessed with finding products that contain these ingredients!
I make my own bone broth, which I have to say has made such a huge difference in my skin and the overall health of my body. I love to drink this throughout the day. It fills me enough to serve as a healthy snack!
I like to make a warm, calming, beautifying drink every evening. The base of it is almond milk. I then add in a scoopful of Moon Juice Beauty Dust, which is not only amazing for the skin but also aids in reducing anxiety or stress. I also add a pinch of Sun Potion Triphala for cleansing properties and about 5 to 10 drops of Lotus Wei Quiet Mind Flower Elixir, which really helps insomnia. I also add a teaspoon of manuka honey for added sweetness and its massive immunity benefits.
For ultra-glamorous effect:
Kjaer Weis Radiance Highlighter and false eyelashes! Both of these will instantly add glamour to any look!
For A Perfect pout:
Mahalo “Red My Lips” lip tint.
Fave Beauty tools:
Eyelash curler, beauty blender and jade roller for face and neck! These are all must-haves.
Weirdest beauty habit:
I apply oils to (and massage into) my entire body, as well as my face and hair, before showering as well as right after showering. This helps my skin to retain its moisture and has made a huge difference in fighting dry, irritated skin! Organic jojoba oil is my favorite to use for this.
In the shower I keep…
Rahua Shampoo and Conditioner, Tammy Fender Epi-Peel, Aleavia Prebiotic Wash, exfoliating body gloves, Osmia Organics Oh So Detox Soap.
On my bedside table…
Crystals (right now I have a lot of rose quartz and carnelian but alternate crystals depending on my mood), Osmia Organics Lip Doctor, Hope Gillerman Sleep Remedy, Lotus Wei Quiet Mind Serum, Lina Hanson Eye and Neck Treatment Balm, Laurel Whole Plant Organics Healing Balm, silk eye mask to block out light.
Once a month I…
Use a detoxifying facial mask. My favorites are Osmia Organics Detox Mask and Laurel Whole Plant Organics Honey Berry Enzyme Mask.
After a long night or rough weekend…
I treat myself to an evening of in-home spa rituals that rejuvenate my mind, body and spirit. Depending on the season, I will use a facial compress containing healing herbs and flowers from Laurel Whole Plant Organics followed by applying a facial oil like the Mahalo Vitality Elixir to my face and neck and inhale deeply to active the benefits of aromatherapy and give my skin a beautiful glow. I then prepare a foot bath with Epsom salt, lavender essential oil and a sprinkle of baking soda. This helps to instantly calm and relax me.
On little sleep I rely on…
Organic coffee, Lotus Wei Radiant Energy Flower Elixir, Sleeping Monk Super Immunity Herbal Formula, and Uma Oil’s Pure Energy Oil applied to the back of my neck and the bottoms of my feet.
The product that changed my skin…
CV Skinlabs Calming Moisture Cream and pretty much everything from Osmia Organics!
Most treasured beauty tip…
Manuka honey applied as a facial mask for 20-40 minutes, two times a week.
For glowing skin…
Organic face oils! Using the right oils for your skin type will give you a beautiful glow.
