Skincare evolves almost daily with the endless option of products and brands that cater to various needs for your foundational facial regimen.
With the different levels of sensitivity, dryness, acne, or discoloration among varying skin types, it’s important to stick to products that you know work for you and adhere to a regimen that responds well to your skin. If you break it down to the four foundational components of maintaining good skin, you should always consider Water, Exfoliation, Toning, and Moisturizing.
We stick to spring water as a go-to option, especially with brands that use their products to create positive social impact. JUST Water created their business around responsible water sourcing and recently partnered with Jaden Smith to bring clean water to the long drawn out the crisis in Flint, Michigan. Staying hydrated and supporting a good cause is all good in our book. (Retail $0.99 per 16.4 oz carton) www.justwater.com
