Caring for Your Skin with UNDER AURORA
Last year I began to incorporate more all-natural and plant based products into my daily life. The first things to go were household cleaners and laundry detergent. It was pretty freaky when I actually sat down and read the list of chemicals contained in the stuff lurking under my sink. Then I cleared my pantry of processed packaged foods and filled my fridge with whole foods. The last to go was my skincare, makeup, and beauty products. After all, it's just as important that what I put ON my body is as nourishing and healthy as what I put IN my body.
All in all, it feels so amazing to know I'm using products that are not only good for the environment but also good for me. But I'll be honest, the switch to chemical free hasn't always been easy. You'll still find a few cheats in my medicine cabinet (I'm only human and I can't live without my Ruby Woo)! And until recently, I had a hard time finding a skin care line that met my chemical-free criteria and actually felt like it was working.
Enter Under Aurora, a line of all-natural, plant-based body and facial care products, and fragrances based in Columbus, Ohio. Their approach to skin care makes so much sense. "We believe that the products you put on your face & body should always be simple, natural, and pure. We use only 100% pure essential oils and plant botanicals in all of our products." Plus all of their products are cruelty-free and bottled in eco-friendly packaging. I'm absolutely obsessed!
But I love Under Aurora for so many more reasons than just the good vibes they're putting out there into the beauty industry. Their products have totally changed my skin in the most lovely way. I use the Gentle Facial Cleanser, Balancing Facial Toner, Nourishing Facial Oil daily. A couple times a week I use the Brightening Facial Scrub. I also moisturize my whole body daily with the Coconut Oil Spray (and occasionally spritz a little in my hair for some extra deep conditioning). My skin is softer, brighter, and more clear than it's been years!
The cleanser is perfect for all skin types (mine is a combination of both dry and oily AND super sensitive) and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean without being drying. The toner is made from rose water, lavender water, and aloe vera and smells heavenly! And omg do I love the nourishing facial oil. This stuff is like food for your face. Ingredients like rosehip seed and carrot oil are packed full of vitamins and Golden Jojoba oil not only moisturizes dry skin but it also thins sebum helping to prevent acne and regulate oil production.
