How To Truly Nurture Your Skin Ultimate Guide, Part 2

Ready to revamp your skincare regime with uplifting, sustainable, clean beauty products? If you haven’t already read our Ultimate Skincare Guide Part 1, start here to learn how to truly nurture your skin based on your specific skin type.  

Here are a few highly recommended, scientifically proven products for each different skin type to enhance youthful and radiant skin! 

Mature Skin

If you have mature skin, it is really important to avoid drying or irritating ingredients like alcohol and fragrance. Look for vitamin A+E, hyaluronic acid, and natural ingredients such as Astaxanthin, mango, aloe vera, chamomile, and olive oil to help minimize wrinkles and inflammation.

The Codex Antu Protecting and Restoring Bundle contains a gentle gel cleanser and brightening moisturizer with anti-aging antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, oleic acid (from olive oil), and vitamins A, C, and K. These ingredients help to strengthen the skin's barrier while reducing inflammation and aging. Hyaluronic acid is known to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it fantastic for all skin types, especially mature skin.

For deep cleansing, try the Serene Face Cleanser, formulated with antioxidants, olive oil, hemp seed oil, sandalwood oil, aloe, and oatmeal, for a soothing experience without clogging pores. It has a creamy, rich consistency that melts into your skin, keeping it nourished. It also helps reduce the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, and scars! 

This skin recovery set has a youth recovery facial serum and eye gel with scientifically backed anti-aging formulations. Studies found that exercise can keep skin looking young, and can even help reverse the effects of aging on the skin. The Exercise Mimic Youth™ Complex mimics the benefits of exercise, using Astaxanthin, aloe leaf juice, hyaluronic acid, asparagus extract, chamomile, AHA, PHA, magnesium, and macroalgae. 

For skin care for men, we have a gel + supplement combo with astaxanthin, green tea extract, olive oil, and a marine antioxidant to prevent and repair any aging. People who have used this treatment have reported fewer wrinkles, and hydrated, brighter, andsmoother skin within four weeks, returning the brightening glow to their skin that time has erased.

Oily skin

If you have oily skin, you'll want to find clarifying products with natural acids like citric acid, stearic acid, and aloe vera. These will deeply cleanse and clear your skin, without drying it out too much. It is still important to have a hydrating moisturizer for oily skin, just avoid products with heavy oils, like coconut oil.  Opt for lightweight or water-based moisturizers that won’t clog your pores. 

This Camphor Cleanser has aloe vera & stearic acid. It helps to balance your skin’s pH, dissolves sebum, and removes surface dead cell build-up, impurities, and pore blockage. We highly recommend this gentle face cleanser for acne-prone skin as well. 

Rosemary oil can help balance sebum secretion, which in excess is the cause of oily skin. It even has anti-bacterial properties. This soothing moisturizer has rosemary oil andhyaluronic acid, making it super moisturizing while also great for oily skin!

Salicylic acid is another great ingredient that helps break down and clear away the excess oils and sebum on your skin. Be careful not to use it every day, 3 to 4 times a week will suffice.

The Vital Clay Mask contains citric acid and salicylic acid, along with kaolin clay, which extracts impurities and excess oil. It also has montmorillonite clay - mineral rich and great forclarifying and detoxing. This treatment also softens and hydrates, while minimizing pores and soothing irritation. 

Dry Skin

If you have dry skin, you want velvet nourishing skincare without removing too many natural oils. People with dry skin typically load up on moisturizer, but you may not be aware that your cleansing routine is important as well. Many cleansers are too harsh and dry your skin out even more! Seek outanti-aging creams and luxurious serums with natural oils & plant-based butter that provide instant comfort and deep hydration.

You'll love this Complete Regimen, which contains a nourishing oil/gel cleanser that gently removes impurities without stripping the skin, a moisturizer that instantly hydrates and energizes dull, tired, dehydrated skin, and a deeply hydrating & nourishing treatment mask. 

Cleansing oils, such as this one, remove impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils. They are also great at removing stubborn makeup! We also have this gel cleanser, specially formulated for dry skin, containing Aloe vera and other botanicals. 

Looking for a performance driven skincare collection? Check out this exclusive bundle deal. These products are super antioxidant and mineral-rich, to keep your skin nourished and healthy. This collection contains a rejuvenating elixir, a hyaluronic serum, and an exquisite Face Serum Oil. These are all extremely hydrating, calm inflammation, and plump your skin for a youthful glow. It also includes the Vital Clay Mask, to extract impurities while hydrating and smoothing, an Intense Eye Creme to reduce puffiness of yourunder-eye bags, and a bonus sample of the Vital Ionic Spray- a refreshing and detoxifying, mineral-rich, soothing spray that can be used as amakeup setting spray or as a refresher to rehydrate your skin throughout the day. 

Acne-Prone Skin

For acne-prone skin, you'll want facial cleansing products that reduce inflammation and kill bacteria without irritating your face. Beneficial ingredients to clear pores are aloe vera, jojoba oil, and tea tree oil. In a perfect world, wash products with the above ingredients will purify your skin and speed the healing process for breakouts.

The Camphor Cleanser is a powerful pH-balanced facial cleanser recommended for normal to oily and problem skin. It contains aloe vera, helps dissolve sebum,  and removes surface dead cell build-up, impurities, and pore blockage. We highly recommend this gentle face wash for acne-prone skin. removing surface dead cell build-up, impurities, and pore blockage. It also promotes anti-bacterial activity. 

Looking for a blemish remover? This blemish balm can help clear your skin blemishes, and dark spots with just a small dot of product applied on any blemishes and left on overnight. It contains refined pine resin, which reduces inflammation, disinfects, and speeds up the skin's natural healing process. 

Another great anti-blemish product is the Vital Clay Spot Treatment. This clay-based cream can help extract impurities, reduce inflammation, and even prevent new blemishes, making it great as a preventative treatment. It also contains salicylic acid, a natural acid that cleans excess oil from pores and exfoliates dead skin cells.

If you have dry skin and acne, you’ll want to check out the Līhau Face Mist, which has blue tansy, for a simultaneously hydrating and breakout-fighting toner. As we mentioned in Part 1 of The Ultimate Skincare Guide, blue tansy is a botanical skincare ingredient especially good for dry skin, and even prevents psoriasis and eczema, due to its anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. 

If you suffer from acne scarring, use the Raw Pracaxi Rejuvenating Oil. It has healing properties that help reduce scarring and restore damaged skin. It is also great for aging skin and reducesfine lines, delivering ultimate hydration and helping with the appearance of skin texture.

Combination Skin 

For combination skin, you’ll want a few different types of products. Look forcult favorite moisturizers and nourishing serums for your dry skin, and lightweight, water-based formulas for oily areas. Check out our suggestions above for both oily and dry skin. 

If you want a gentle hydrating cleanser, the Pa'akai Cleansing Cream works for all skin types, so it won’t be too heavy for your oily skin. It contains powerful, active ingredients such as cleansing Hawaiian salt, antioxidant-rich hibiscus, and calming chamomile, along with rose and seaweed extract, to strengthen and renew your skin, while accelerating the natural skin repair process.

Hawaiian Beauty Water contains papaya enzymes, hibiscus, and Hawaiian sugar, to naturally exfoliate. This is a chemical exfoliant, so it is not abrasive and gentle enough even for sensitive skin. This works well for combination skin, just adjust how often you use it to your skin’s needs. If you are on the drier side, use it only 1-3 times per week, but if you are oilier, it can be used up to 5 times per week. 

If you need something for dryness, an excellent choice would be the Gentle Goddess Bundle, which contains a chamomile and myrrh face serum and an extra nourishing balm to spot-treat your extra dry patches.  

Don't skip sunscreen!

And of course, sunscreen is always a vital skincare step for all types of skin! It is easy to forget, but it is the single most important step to protect your skin and prevent pre-mature aging and skin cancer! We love this powder-based formula because you can easily dust it over makeup or as the last step of your skincare routine.
