Washing your face. We all need to do it, but sometimes it’s just so hard to motivate yourself to get to the sink and wash away the day. Then once you work up the energy, the loads of products, routines, and beauty magazine advice swirls through your head. It can be downright intimidating and unnecessary. At Rocky, we like keeping things simple. Washing your face should be a source of joy, not a chore.
We’re all looking to simplify our lives, and if we can find a way to steal 10 minutes of time back throughout the day, we’ll take it! Skin care is one of those things that can start to take far too much time. Before you know it, you’ve got a countertop full of products and you’re taking off one only to add another, and another, and another.
We’re here to tell you that skincare doesn’t need to be a complicated, ten-step process. Just like Marie Kondo has taken over your closet, it’s time to Konmari your skincare. We’ve put together a simple, all-natural 3-step routine for your morning and evening face care regime.
To start your day fresh faced use a gentle exfoliator like our Face Polish. Removing those excess skin cells will help bring out your natural glow. Depending on your skin type, you may need need to exfoliate every other day or just once a week. For days when you don’t exfoliate, you can use a gentle soap or oil cleanser (more on that later).
Give your skin a dose of hydration, antioxidants and skin-repairing ingredients with one of our Facial Toners. Using a toner balances the skin while adding another layer of nutrients. Toners also prepare your skin for improved absorption and more even texture when applying your moisturizer. It will leave your skin feeling fresh and hydrated. Tip: You can also spritz your toner throughout the day for a pick-me-up!
Always make time to moisturize! It’s oh-so-important to protect your skin for the day ahead. Made to nourish, protect and fight the signs of aging, our Day Cream is the ultimate superhero for your face. It's full of antioxidant-rich Pomegranate Oil to protect you from free radicals (caused by all the nasty stuff in the air) and Black Oats Extract, which forms a barely-there layer that strengthens the skin’s natural moisturizing factors, protecting against dryness all day long.
Wash the day away and cleanse your skin. This could be with a gentle soap or our Transformative Cleansing Oil. New to oil cleansing? When used as a cleanser, plant oils dissolve dirt, makeup residue, and prevent the build-up of oil and bacteria that can reside deep in our pores. Learn more about cleansing your face with natural oils.
The skin around your eyes is thinner and more fragile than the rest of your face, so it’s important to give it an extra dose of TLC with an eye cream. Known as the 'Tree of Everlasting Youth', Beech Tree Bud extract gives a firm resiliency and support to the skin, while Coconut and Jojoba Oils provide long-lasting hydration. This formula also uses vitamin and antioxidant rich Ginseng and Green Tea to restore a look of youth and vitality and to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye. If you feel the need, you can use your eye cream twice a day, but in the spirit of simplicity, we’ve included it in the evening routine.
Slather on that serum. Before bed is the perfect time to let a hydrating serum nourish your skin while you sleep. Think of it like vitamins for your skin. Our natural Face Serum is made with a good dose of antioxidant-packed Sea Buckthorn Oil, and is filled with crazy-intense concentrations of vitamins and nutrients.
Treat yourself to an extra special revitalizing treatment from time to time. Use one of our Face Masks to restore and refresh your complexion, or you can make your own. You can do this on a weekly basis for a little extra skin self-love.
There you have it! Easy-peasy, 3-step skincare routines for healthy, nourished skin both day and night. If you have a face care ritual in place that is working for you, we don’t want to throw a wrench in things. But if it's a labour-intensive process that you’re looking to simplify, try experimenting and removing certain products to see what kind of difference it makes.
