Daily Green Skin Care Routine
Having a daily skincare routine is extremely important. As we go about our day our skin collects all kinds of dirt, oil and sweat; wiggling their way into our delicate pores. By not removing these at the end of the day the clogged pores can lead to acne breakouts as well as inflammation and discolouration. Follow these steps to keep your skin looking vibrant and feeling clean.
1. Start with a facial oil to remove any makeup or dirt from the face. Recommended product: Kodo Collection Flora
2. After you've removed your makeup begin washing your face with a cleanser. This will help clean everything that was left behind.
Viva Bio Foaming Cleanser for acne prone skin.
Viva Milk Cleanser for mature/dry skin.
3. Spray a cotton pad with a toner and gently wipe your face. A toner will remove any last trace of dirt that was left behind. It can also help to reduce the appearance of your pores.

4. Once your face is dried you're going to want to rehydrate your skin. Dry skin can crack and make you look more tired. In the mornings you should try and avoid serums and oils as they can cause sunburns very quickly. Try using a cream in the morning and serums at night.
Although having a daily skincare routine is very important it is just as important to have weekly ones as well. Get in the habit of exfoliating 1-2x per week. As our skin regenerates, the old skin cells are left behind. Clogging pores and causing our faces to look dull and discoloured. Through exfoliation we can help remove these dead skin cells and actually boost cell turnover! Allowing fresh, healthy cells to surface.
