For someone who is obsessed with skincare, my routine is extremely simple.  I have only a few great products in my rotation.  In the morning, I cleanse with Pai's cleanser, followed by an oil of my liking, then Ursa Major of VT sunscreen.  In the evening I do the same sans the sunscreen - that’s it.  I will occasionally add in a serum or an extra oil, and I do a mask once a week.  My skin loves simplicity and has been so much calmer since I stripped down my routine.  I still get breakouts, but they’re usually less severe, and when I do get them, I just allow my skin to be where it wants to be.  

I recently started to use F. Miller Skincare products, and I am in love with everything I’ve tried so far.  I’ve been using the face oil day and night, and my skin loves it.  My skin has been less red/irritated and very hydrated and dewy (without being greasy).  I’ve also noticed a reduction of the small comedones I get on my chin and forehead.  It doubles as a beautiful essential oil blend to inhale before applying - with neroli, jasmine, frankincense, and bergamot.  These are some of my favorite essential oils, and they smell so delicious together.  

I’ve also been using the eye treatment oil.  I especially love the stainless steel roller - it’s incredibly cooling and refreshing to the touch.  The skin around my eyes is easily irritated, and I often get eczema on my eyelids, which is why I can only use select oils/creams on my face.  Typically, when I try something new, it’s an immediate no.  This product is so gentle, and it has the opposite effect - it’s calming, and it reduces my puffiness in the morning.  I'm completely in love! 

The body oil is so yummy and luxurious.  I’ve been using it after every shower, and it soaks easily into damp skin.  Try it.  You'll love it.

I’ve never used hair oil, and I have no idea why because I have very coarse, frizzy hair.  This hair oil does not make my hair greasy at all, and calms my frizz.  I use it on both my naturally-dried and blow-dried hair.

Not only is this line ton-toxic and cruelty-free, it's also independently owned by an incredible woman, Fran.  I had the pleasure of meeting her recently, and she's amazing.  If you try any of these products, your skin and hair will thank her.

I love skin products.  Well, not all skin products.  But I love how we can nourish our largest organ in a healthy, sustainable way by choosing products mindfully.  Ursa Major of Vermont has a beautiful, natural/cruelty-free line of skincare, and I’ve been adding the products pictured above into my routine (with fantastic results).  

The Morning Mojo Bar Soap is refreshing and invigorating, yet soft enough for my eczema-prone skin.  It also gently exfoliates, which is so necessary for my skin with the dry Southern California air I live in.  

Their Force Field Daily Defense Lotion with SPF 18 is my absolute favorite face sunscreen.  It’s incredibly lightweight.  I use this every morning after cleansing and putting on oils, prior to my makeup or any extra moisturizers.  

Another lovely moisturizer is the Golden Hour Recovery Cream.  It's very soothing, calming, and hydrating.  It’s my go-to “anti-aging” product because it also firms the skin.  It smells lovely with notes of sandalwood, neroli, and a hint of rose.  

My absolute favorite product of theirs is the Vitamin C Serum.  It brightens, evens skin tone, firms, and lightly hydrates.  It’s the perfect summer serum, and I used it all season.  I was traveling (read all about it here) all summer getting very little sleep, and this serum was my rescue. 

Another must-have for traveling/being on the go are the Essential Face Wipes.  These remove dirt, grime, and grease so well that the wipes turn tan after using them with no makeup on!  Gross, and also amazing.  Be sure to hydrate after use.
