CARE FOR YOUR SKIN, CARE FOR YOURSELF

Every day, you’re busy adapting to a new normal, which can be very draining. When you add in new work routines and maybe some at-home childcare chaos, and remove normal social outlets, you’re set up for a perfect storm of stress and fatigue. It’s important to make taking care of yourself a priority.

We recommend carving out moments that are just for you, starting with your daily skin care rituals. Spending a few minutes with natural products that help reveal your radiance will leave you feeling calm and refreshed, and more prepared to handle whatever your day brings.

THE SKIN CARE YOU NEED

First up is finding the right products. Indulge in products that come from nature, and are meant to nourish and protect your skin. Everyone’s skin is different, so try the Burt’s Regimen Builder to find the right products for you.

GREET THE MORNING WITH A GLOW

Set the alarm a few minutes early to get some time for yourself to enjoy your morning skin care ritual. Our Renewal Refining Cleanser is a great way to start—it cleanses without stripping away moisture and helps brighten the skin. Follow it up with Renewal Firming Day Lotion with Bakuchiol, a natural retinol alternative that’s gentle by nature. You can dot on some Renewal Firming Eye Cream, too, for a boost of smoothing hydration.

UNWIND WITH A NIGHTTIME RITUAL

After a long day, it’s time to rest and recharge. Leave the phone plugged in elsewhere, turn off the TV, maybe do some reading, and go through a few relaxing skin care steps before you head to bed. First, wash away dirt, oil and makeup with our luxurious, gentle Facial Cleansing Oil. Decompress with a facial massage while you’re at it, relaxing your muscles and improving circulation. Smooth on a soothing layer of our Renewal Firming Moisturizing Cream to keep skin hydrated and happy. And smooth lips with your favorite flavor of lip balm or our Overnight Intensive Lip Treatment.

TAKE SOME TIME, ANY TIME

Sometimes you—and your skin—could use a little extra TLC. You can get some quick pampering that feels luxurious without taking up a ton of time. Try a Detoxifying Charcoal Sheet Mask, or a Brightening Biocellulose Gel Mask for a quick pick-me-up. Our classic Hand Salve restores skin that’s dry and depleted from frequent washing—we love to use it under cotton gloves overnight for intense moisturizing. You can smooth on Coconut Foot Crème and put on some cotton socks to let all that good, natural moisture soak in.

Little rituals like these can go a long way toward building up your personal resilience each day. Give yourself the time you need to gather your strength and your confidence and to center yourself when you need it.
