A Fresh Approach to Skincare
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when trying to find the right skincare products. At times, it feels as if we’re being drowned with marketing jargon and buzzwords like retinol, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. It’s common to find yourself blankly staring at shiny packages, packed with synthetic ingredients, promising us quick fixes and magical elixirs while being told that we’re using too many products, not enough or just short of the right amount. Skincare can seem like a big, scary world—but it doesn’t have to be.
Skincare should be simple.
At Lush, we believe that the skin should function naturally and in the healthiest way possible with the least amount of interference. Real skin should be nourished with real, fresh ingredients that meet you where you’re at.</p>
Where to start
It all starts with the ingredients, of course. Rid yourself of the fluff and get up close and personal with what you’re really putting on your skin. Whether you’re looking for a one-step routine or a ten-step one, all skin needs are unique. Look for solutions that benefit your skin in a gentle and natural way. Our handmade products are made with fresh fruits and vegetables, the finest essential oils, safe synthetics, and never tested on animals.
A fresh approach
You’ve probably seen vitamin C in many skincare products but does your skin even need it? A nourishing antioxidant, seek vitamin C if you’re looking to naturally even out skin tone, as this super ingredient may help brighten skin. Our new Bright And Beautiful Vitamin C Exfoliating Facial Scrub cleanses and nourishes with fine charcoal and vitamin C powder. Happy Skin Enzymic Facial Exfoliator is another great option packed with vitamin C-rich pineapple and jackfruit.
If you’re looking for collagen—many times made from heavily-processed animal by-products—why not try a natural, vegetarian alternative like neroli, primrose or frankincense, all of which provide the same toning benefit as collagen. Beauty Sleep Face And Body Mask is an indulgent mask packed with neroli and myrrh resinoid to give skin a plump and bouncy appearance. Or try one of our most luxurious moisturizers, Gorgeous made with brightening fruit juices and moisture-locking primrose oil.
Many people look to hyaluronic acid to hydrate and smooth out skin, but did you know it is often extracted from animals or synthesized in a laboratory? Ingredients like glycerin—a natural and gentle humectant—beeswax and agave offer the same benefits. Glycerin, found in some of our most beloved products like Cosmetic Lad Moisturizer, Don’t Look At Me Fresh Face Mask and Cucumber Eye Pads nourishes and moisturizes skin the same way hyaluronic acid would. If you’re looking for a makeup remover, Ultrabland Facial Cleanser made with beeswax gently removes dirt while leaving skin soft and nourished. Or give Cup O’ Coffee Face And Body Mask a try to invigorate skin with moisture-drawing agave syrup.
When it comes to skincare less is always more; opt for products with fresh, real ingredients and don’t pay attention to the trends. Instead, take a moment to listen to your skin, you’ll be shocked to realize that it’s been telling you what it’s needed all along.
