Over-cleansing can strip the skin of its natural oils and leave sensitive faces dry and flaking, which is exactly why I skip out on a full face wash routine in the mornings. Instead, I splash on a little bit of Cleansing Water. Formulated with minimal, natural ingredients (like cucumber, aloe water, and coconut water), it gently cleanses and tones in one fell swoop. (Plus, there are crystals in the bottle for extra good vibes.)
While not *technically* a serum, Aurelia’s lightweight cream can be mixed in with any serum or moisturizer to add a quick hit of good bacteria to your skin; which has all types of benefits, like improved microbiome function (to keep bad bacteria out and moisture in) and reduced inflammation. Since I've started using this, my skin feels less reactive — I think because my barrier is stronger.
Apply this limited-edition palette with a dry brush for a sheen, or use a damp sponge to achieve a trendy strobe highlight.
