MONTHLY MUST-HAVE: 5 FACIAL BALMS YOU NEED NOW
Restorative - Kahina Lip + Face Balm:
This delicately scented geranium and neroli balm is perfect for soothing and protecting chapped lips and dry skin. Comprised of shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil, beeswax and (my personal fave) mango nut butter, it's velvety smooth and incredibly easy to apply. Also in this balm is Immortelle, infused with calendula, blue tansy, carrot seed, argan and sea buckthorn oils...all delivering powerful healing, soothing, anti-inflammatory properties to nourish your skin.
Healing + Anti-Aging - Mahalo Rare Indigo Balm:
Magical, is what this balm is! With a rare, gorgeous hue, this indigo blue skin balm is made to be your year-round pal. It suits all skin types, but is especially kind to aging, irritated skin. It also caters to eczema, dermatitis or dryness. The balm immediately soothes skin on contact, and helps reduce redness, fight blemishes and renew and revitalize skin. I mean...like I said, these balms are all-stars!
Balancing - Isa's Restoratives Immortelle Beauty Balm:
Helichrysum also known as immortelle, is highly regenerative and promotes formation of new tissue. This specific beauty balm is formulated with a combination of cold-pressed, unrefined oils and butters that literally melt into your complexion. It's incredibly balancing, it reduces degeneration of skin cells, restores elasticity and helps skin retain water. In return, your skin will be extremely emollient, giving you healthy, soft skin.
Jack of All Trades - Zoe Organics Everything Balm:
I just love Zoe Organics as a whole. Zoe means "life," and Zoe Organics' mission is to celebrate and protect the lives of our children, family, community and planet. Don't you just love that? Okay, so onto the balm. There's a reason they call this the "Everything Balm". It's truly the most versatile, easy-to-use balm there is! This balm is naturally moisturizing, restorative, soothing and more. I've used it on sunburns, scrapes, rashes, dry patches, you name it - this stuff is amazing! And of course with shea butter, coconut and jojoba oils, you're getting some intense hydration.
Soothing - Nourish Night Balm
A night balm, you say? Yep! As if it didn't get any better...as you complete your nightly skincare and self-care ritual, warm a dime sized amount of the balm between your fingertips and gently press onto face and neck. You'll be sure to drift into sweet slumber as your skin repairs itself, deeply hydrates and soothes your skin. Upon waking up, your skin will look refreshed, calm, radiant and deeply nourished. I'd say this balm is ideal for the winter, as it's incredibly hydrating. But, like most of these balms, they can be used anytime you see fit! So, are you a fan of face balms?
