My beauty regiment each morning and evening has always been simple. However, the key to a smart beauty regiment is using products that nourish and hydrate the body. Rather than hide impurities, I try to embrace feeling my best and enhancing these feelings throughout my day. I love island-inspired scents, scrubs, and vegan-friendly products especially made with simple, high quality ingredients. Below you will discover five products I recently discovered that are all about pure nourishment for the body.
Coconut Crush Scrub: I have been in love with Kopari’s skincare and beauty care products ever since their Coconut Scrub was introduced to me at a Hamptons event. I cannot recommend a body scrub more than this one. I use this scrub twice a week on my legs, shoulders, back, and feet. This brown sugar scrub is infused with small pieces of Tahitian coconut shell to buff dry skin off your body. Key ingredients include Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, Organic Beeswax, and Coconut Oil. Cruelty free, sulfate free, paraben free, vegan, non-GMO.
Coconut & Papaya Hand Cream: One of my favorite hand creams that I have been using on a regular basis for four months. I love the gentle hints of vanilla extract mixed with the coconut and papaya. It does wonders to my hands and feet, leaving them silky and smooth all day. The scent is subtle and luxurious and perfect t use all year round. I love the attractive packaging that features elaborate geometric designs as a nod to the prints and textiles from the Caribbean. Cruelty free, ethically traded ingredients.
Mouthwash: Not harsh, but it works! I am not very fond of mouthwashes that have that uncomfortable, alcohol taste, it can almost be too unbearable to swish with. Oral Essentials has a fresh, authentic minty taste that I love to use twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. The formula of their products combine high quality essential oils and whole ingredients like Dead Sea Salt (first brand in the U.S.), Mint, Organic Aloe Vera, unrefined coconut oil, and cayenne pepper oil.
