Recommended Daily Routine for Healthy Balanced Skin

Whether you have healthy skin, inflamed skin or mature skin, we recommend the same skin care routine for everyone. If you wonder how it’s possible for one routine to work for everyone, read this blog post here… it’s an important one!

We strongly believe in resetting the skin’s natural, biological processes to encourage your delicate skin to function on its own as it’s meant to. Our minimalist, high-quality skin care products, combined with the power of Daily Self Massage, will make your skin the healthiest it’s ever been. We promise!

To learn more about how we view the skin and why we recommend caring for it the way that we do, we suggest taking a deep dive into our Blog.

If you are brand new to natural skin care or have a compromised skin barrier, we recommend that you start with our popular Skin ReSet routine. Our Skin ReSet routine is a super minimalist routine that will reset your skin’s natural processes for optimal skin health and a radiant glow.

Morning Routine

We do not recommend cleansing in the morning. The skin is a delicate organ that is fully capable of cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing itself. The more that we do to it, the more we risk aggravating it and disrupting these natural processes. The purpose of a skin care routine should be to provide support and encourage the skin’s natural functioning. When we cleanse our skin at night, we wake up in the morning with clean skin. There’s no need to cleanse it again. We have a very delicate protective barrier on the surface of the skin that is vital for our skin’s health. This barrier is made up of our natural oils, sweat and dead skin cells. While we’ve been conditioned to think these 3 components are bad and should be removed, our natural oil, sweat and dead skin cells are very necessary for healthy skin, so we want to allow them all to serve their purpose. Cleansing once a day is sufficient. We promise!

Evening Routine

  • Oil Cleansing: Apply 3-4 pumps of Sacred Calm Soothing Cleansing Oil + Moisturizer to dry skin. Wet your fingertips and massage into your skin for approximately 60 seconds to lift away dirt and debris.
  • Using a warm, damp cloth, gently wipe your face to remove Sacred Calm.
  • If you wear heavy makeup, a double cleanse might be necessary. In this case, please repeat steps 1-2 above.
  • Gently mist your face and neck with Garden Mist Rose Geranium Hydrosol.
  • Apply 1 drop of Bright Soul Eye + Eyelash Serum around each eye. You can also apply it right up into your eyebrows for fuller eyebrows.
  • Apply 1-2 pumps (please note that this is less than your morning routine amount – see the evening tip section for the explanation of why) of either Sacred Calm Soothing Cleansing Oil + Moisturizer or Sacred Light Revitalizing Face Oil and massage it into your skin. If you did not perform your self massage in your morning routine, perform my Daily Self Massage for Healthy Skin now, which you can find the video tutorial to below.

Evening Tip:
We do not recommend using a lot of face oil in the evening, and Rachel does not recommend using face balm at all at night. While we sleep, our skin repairs, regenerates and exfoliates itself. If we have thicker amounts of oil or balms on the skin, they can disrupt this natural biological process. 1-2 pumps of Sacred Calm or Sacred Light is sufficient as your night time moisturizer. It quickly absorbs into the skin, so it will not disrupt your skin’s nightly repair process.

Daily Self Massage for Healthy Skin

The products will reset your skin on the outside, and Rachel’s Daily Massage for Healthy Skin will help improve your skin health from the inside-out.

The skin that we treat topically with skin care products is only 0.1 mm thick, and it’s underneath this layer of skin where all of the life occurs:

  • blood circulation that brings nutrients and fresh oxygen to the skin
  • lymphatic flow to help remove cellular waste and toxins from the skin cells
  • connective tissue, where collagen and elastin are produced and hydration is stored

These layers of skin can be encouraged and supported through gentle massage, which is why, at Her Soul Intention Skin Care, we are so adamant about adding self massage into your daily topical skin care routine.

When you combine your topical skin care routine with daily self massage, your skin will dramatically improve from the inside-out. Your skin tone will even out and I ensure you that your skin will even begin to naturally glow overtime.

Rachel created the Daily Self Massage for the Face and Neck for you. We recommend performing this massage once a day, every day, or as often as you can. It’s only five minutes long and will really help to improve the natural functioning of your skin.

To begin the massage, apply a little Sacred Calm or Sacred Light, take some deep breaths into your belly, and enjoy some much needed self touch, while improving the appearance of your skin.
