Do you want healthy skin all year?
Of course the answer is yes! With New England’s crazy weather sometimes it’s hard to keep up. Skin gets dry in the winter, sunkissed (or in my case , burned ) in the summer, spring and fall aren’t so bad but keeping your healthy skin is a year round job! So I have put together this list of amazing products that will help your skin all year long, even with the unpredictable weather!
While I REALLY LOVE any product that has fewer chemicals, even better if they are organic, not all of these fit that bill. If you know of a comparable product please tell us all about it in the comments!
**I am sharing these products because I love them. I only have an affiliation with Young Living, not any of the other products or companies.
#1 Neutrogena Grapefruit Face Wash
Most soaps are can dry your skin out, even if your skin is naturally oily. This, however, does not.
“Soap can effectively remove dirt and germs from your skin, it can also remove the natural oils secreted by your skin. If you use harsh soaps too frequently, your skin may feel dry and rough. Some soaps are more drying than others, and some are even abrasive or irritating. Select a cleanser that is mild and moisturizing, and avoid stronger detergent bars and deodorant soaps, to help prevent dryness.” says the Honor Society of Nursing (STTI)
This face wash:
- Is Oil-Free
- Is Non-Comedogenic (won’t clog pores)
- Has Vitamin C
- Has salicylic acid to fight break outs
#2 Young Living's ART Toner
Why do I need a toner?
- Toners can help remove dead skin cells that dull the skin (yes please!)
- They can reduce the appearance of pores (Oh yeah!)
- And can remove particles left behind after cleansing (wooohoo!)
Applying a toner is often a step long forgotten. ART toner has a revitalizing feeling on your skin and those essential oils are so beneficial! It has lavender, witch hazel, peppermint, royal hawaiian sandalwood, frankincense, aloe, green tea, lemon, melissa and other amazing ingredients to support your healthy skin.
I personally only use this at night but you could use it 2x a day after you wash your face. Just put some on a cotton round and swipe over your face.
Retail cost is around $33 for 120 ml
#3 Juice Beauty - SPF 30 Oil Free Moisturizer
SPF is really important, in my opinion, when you’re choosing a moisturizer, and this one is broad spectrum SPF 30, organic, and oil-free!
I will let Juice Beauty describe their healthy skin awesomeness because they do it so well!

#4 Juice Beauty SPF 8 Lip Moisturizers
Oh yeah, my lips are skin too! Yup, don’t forget them, or the SPF either (yes your lips can burn, ask me, I know!)
This trio combines mineral SPF sun protection with emollient certified organic plant oils, mango, passionfruit, and vitamins. It’s a lip softening sun barrier that’s good for you! You get one clear and two mineral tints!

“Handpicked Bulgarian Rose, ethically sourced from the Rose Valley of Bulgaria. This moisturizing murumuru butter and rose body wash is made with no sulfate cleansers, no parabens and is infused with plant based cleansers, leaving you and the planet a little more beautiful.” From their website.
No more in shower lotion for me, and it’s 16 fl oz! This lasts forever!
So on top of smelling great and really moisturizing, it’s planet friendly!
Love Beauty and Planet also has other great fragrances to support your healthy skin.
