Thrive 5: Fresh Faces Start With These Cleansers and TonersOctober 9th, 2015
When it comes to beauty, nature knows best. That’s why we’re stocking our beauty cabinets with all-natural (and cruelty-free!) skincare.
With these five chemical-free skin care essentials from Thrive Market, you’ll be fresh-faced and ready to glow without having to worry about any not-so-pretty ingredients. Just rinse, tone, replenish, and repeat.
No matter how well we feed our skin and bodies, zits happen. Fight breakouts by cleansing with Alba Botanica Acne Dote Deep Pore Wash, featuring maximum strength 2% salicylic acid (naturally derived from willow bark extract). This lathering oil-free cleanser digs deep into pores to unclog the gunk, while zapping existing blemishes and preventing new ones.
Or get gorgeous on-the-go with Acure Brilliantly Brightening Coconut Cleansing Towelettes, which harness the skin cleansing and replenishing power of super hydrating argan oil in easy-to-use, 100-percent biodegradable (within 7 days!) wipes. Their gentle yet effective formula won’t strip your natural oils and instantly reveals a brighter, fresher face. Also works great for cleaning hands and wiping down yoga mats.
No hocus pocus here when witch hazel is part of the mix. Produced from the leaves and bark of the North American witch hazel shrub, the therapeutic properties of this almighty plant have been celebrated for well over a century. Just one cotton ball’s worth of Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel With Aloe Vera Toner naturally cleans, cools, and calms your skin. The witch hazel removes excess oil, while fabulously fragrant rose petal water refreshes skin and aloe vera soothes dryness. Prefer to spritz when you tone? Try Nourish Organic Rosewater and Witch Hazel.
Aztec Secret Health Indian Healing Clay‘s package confidently claims it’s the “world’s most powerful facial,” and after trying it ourselves, we’re believers. Smoother, brighter, smaller-pored skin awaits after just one use (wear from 10 to 20 minutes). The “secret” of this clay mask is bentonite clay, a detoxing ingredient with slightly magnetic qualities that attract and suck out the dirt and toxins hiding deep in pores.
