August Beauty Must Haves

Wait, August is over? But I haven’t even written my August Beauty Must Haves yet! How is it that when we are children the days seem so long and yet as we get older they fly by? I tend to look at my life in years now, months go too fast and you can forget days. I blink and they are over! Could it be that my life is too busy…or just a full, happy life. Either way, I choose to believe the second.

August is when we start back dancing at my studio, life gets a little busier than it was in the summer, and my skin takes a hit. I feel like it’s a mixture of the climate change, hormones, and a little additional deadline stress.  If you experience a skin change in August now is the time to pamper yourself and I have just the products you are looking for. On this last day of August, these are my August Beauty Must Haves. Better late than never right?! These four have been keeping my skin regular and healing any problems spots when they pop up. Give them a try. I’m sure you will love them.

My Criteria

In my first beauty must haves post I talked about the importance of clean ingredients and removing toxins from your beauty routine. If you still aren’t sure about making the switch you should read 10 Toxic Beauty Chemicals . This is a great beginning guide to help you start on the clean sustainable beauty path. To help give you some pointers I have labeled my recommendations as Classic Clean (70-80% perfection) and Pure Super Star (amazingly healthy & clean). I have also given you dollar signs to guide your purchase from low ($ – under $10) to high ($$$$ – over $100). I’m excited to say August’s recommendations are all PURE SUPER STARS. These are products that I seriously couldn’t live without so let’s get started!

 August Beauty Must Haves

Sustainably Southern recommends Andalou Naturals Floral Toner for healthy, beautiful skin

1. Andalou Naturals 1,000 Roses Floral Toner

Clean Level: Pure Super Star

Why I Love It:

I am obsessed with roses. The smell is intoxicating to me and instantly makes me happy. This toner smells like you are standing in a room full of the biggest most beautiful roses ever grown. I normally do not like scented products but I could literally smell this 27-7! I’m not going to lie, there are days when I spray this all over my body…not just my face!

On top of the amazing aroma, this toner is a light rosewater mist that instantly refreshes and revitalizes skin’s delicate pH balance. It tones and tightens while it moisturizes and is rich in tannins and polyphenols. With hyaluronic acid and aloe vera, it helps leave your skin looking flawless. The box says it is for delicate and dry skin, however, I have had no problems using it on my oily days as well.  And the best part, it was under $15 on Amazon. I can’t wait to try more from the 1,000 roses line.

Sustainably Southern recommends CV Skinlabs for healthy, beautiful skin

2. CV Skinlabs Rescue + Relief Spray

Clean Level: Pure Super Star

Why I Love It:

This isn’t necessarily a beauty product but I had to tell you about it! If you ever have had irritated skin, rashes, or burn your skin (like me…regularly on your curling iron!!) you need this product in your home ASAP. I have never had a product that worked so well to take the sting out of burns and heal rashes/irritation. It’s packed with amazing botanical extracts and has a milk-like consistency instantly bringing a cooling sensation to the inflamed area. I’ve used it on burns (oven and curling iron), skin irritation from food allergies, razor burn/bumps, sunburn, and applied to cuts/scrapes (after cleaning first). I also feel like it’s helped minimize burn scars as well which makes it a great beauty product. This is one product in our house that I never let go empty!

Sustainably Southern recommends MUN for healthy, beautiful skin

3. MUN No. 7 Ayour Body Toning Serum

Clean Level : Pure Super Star

Why I Love Them:

MUN is one of those decadent, luxurious companies who’s products make you feel like a princess when you apply. Ok, that sounds cheesy but seriously these products are amazing! I first heard about MUN from Beauty by Britanie whom I love and have followed for a long time! She whole-hearted recommended them, and even though the price tag scared me, I bought something from their line and was immediately hooked. Their products WORK! And they are so concentrated that one bottle lasts almost a full year for me which honestly makes them a bargain!
My current favorite is the No. 7 Ayour Body Toning Serum. I’m obsessed with body serums because honestly why does your face get all of the love? We take all of this time to pamper our faces and just give the rest of our skin a cheap body lotion. Newsflash…people can see more than just your face! And with this MUN serum, you’ll be happy to show it off. It absorbs super fast without a greasy residue. With its amazing ingredient list, it softens and smoothes skin, minimizes the look of premature wrinkles, helps lessen the look of stretch marks, and gives your skin an overall brighter appearance. I use this all over twice a week and then daily on my chest (go away wrinkles!!) and on my thighs. A really fabulous product!

 Sustainably Southern recommends Skin Owl for healthy, beautiful skin

4. Skin Owl Mangosteen Beauty Drops PM

Clean Level: Pure Super Star

Why I Love It:

I love these PM drops when I feel like my skin is just looking a little too worn out. Sometimes it’s from stress, lack of sleep, not enough water…but regardless the reason, these drops are the perfect overnight pick me up! My face looks so refreshed and glows in the morning after using these drops. I could list why they are great but honestly, I think their box says it best:

“Recharge and reverse signs of fatigue with this nighttime elixir and watch skin visibly transform within hours. Powerful xanthones work to heal cells damaged by free radicals and slow down the aging process. Mangosteen’s natural antibacterial properties and antimicrobial compounds visibly correct skin blemishes, oily skin and chronic dry skin. Coupled with the superior powers of organic, cold-pressed South African Baobab Oil, this exquisite oil absorbs quickly and is designed to act as a high level anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory.”

It sounds too good to be true but I can tell you it’s not! This is a must-have to keep in your skin care arsenal. You just never know when you will need it. Life can be difficult but thanks to Skin Owl’s PM drop you can keep it from showing up on your face.
