When it comes to skin care, I try to keep everything simple. It has taken me a really long time to find a cleanser that I really like and so far, my Acure Organics Facial Cleanser is working quite well and I highly recommend it. I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin and it’s difficult to find something that is natural and gentle, but still cleanses my skin effectively. I also think the price point is pretty affordable, especially since you can find it at a variety of retailers (which means keep an eye out for those coupon codes!).

For toner, I generally use a mixture of tea tree oil and witch hazel. If I have a big zit, I use apple cider vinegar as a blemish treatment. All these products are inexpensive, easy-to-use, and can be used for many other things beyond skin care.
Finding the perfect moisturizer can be daunting to say the least. I read about argan oil from several green beauty blogs and I purchased a small bottle from Amazon to try it out myself. I think it’s a nice simple product that is very moisturizing not only for your face, but also for your body and your hair. You just need a few drops and it gets the job done. Coconut Oil is also a great moisturizer and I like to use it for removing my makeup.
When it comes to sunscreen, Kiss My Face has a great face and neck sunscreen that I LOVE. It doesn’t leave a white cast on your skin and it is easy to blend. It has a good EWG score and I purchased mine on Amazon for around $10 when it was on sale. I use it everyday and it is my current HG facial sunscreen.
