Normally, having a ton of options is a good thing. Having lots of fashion choices lets you express your unique sense of style. Lots of food options means you can satisfy that niche food craving. And having hundreds of skincare products to choose from means you can find precisely what your skin needs! But having that many options can also be a tad bit overwhelming too.

That’s why we’re giving you an insider look at OUR daily skincare ritual. We like to keep things simple and clean, so this is a great option when you’re starting fresh, starting over, or just OVER your normal routine. 

Our skincare ritual involves a little thing we like to call CHGR--Cleanse, Hydrate, Glow, Repeat! If that sounds perfect for you, then keep reading and learn all the details on our no-fuss skincare ritual designed to raise vibrations and enhance natural beauty.

The Fifth & Root Daily Skincare Ritual

Everyone’s skin is unique, so it makes sense that your skincare practices will be unique as well. There are different morning skincare routines, evening skincare routines, mid-day skin pick-me-ups, and even weekly masks and treatment options. When the options are overwhelming, or even when it just feels like your routine is falling flat, it’s a good idea to get back to basics.

That’s why we love our botanically-infused skincare ritual. Clean beauty is important to us. That’s why we like to keep things clean and simple with powerful ingredients and no-fuss instructions. So sit back, take notes, and get ready to let your natural beauty shine.

Cleanse Away Impurities

Unless you have really dry skin, cleansing your skin should be something you do daily. You might not know it, but your skin comes into contact with a lot throughout the day. From dirt and sweat to pollution and bacteria. If you let that stuff sit on your skin too long, it makes it harder for your skin to get the oxygen it needs. When that happens, you might experience clogged pores, excess oil, dull skin, or even excess redness. Even if your skin is prone to dryness, it’s still a good idea to use a cleanser every few days.

To get the best of both worlds, we like to use powder cleansers that double as exfoliants. Like you, we’ve got a lot on our plates. So having products that have a two-in-one bonus is a huge win for us. Plus, not only are these products TSA-friendly, but you also get to control how much exfoliation your skin receives. 

For combination skin, this is a MUST. Some days your skin is oilier and can use stronger exfoliation. Other days, however, if your skin is dry or feels sensitive, you’ll want to cleanse more gently. This versatility is what makes powder cleansers perfect for all skin types. 

Just make sure when you’re choosing your products that they’re full of natural ingredients. Our Karmic Cleanse is full of superfoods like matcha tea to calm and nourish your skin. Other ingredients like French green clay and fruit enzymes help rid your skin of impurities and dead skin cells while ground hemp and crushed jade gently exfoliate and infuse your skin with natural beauty vibes. Plus, we added 50mg of CBD because our skin deserves the absolute best 😉

Hydrate and Protect Your Skin

Two things your skin absolutely loves are oxygen and water. That’s why making sure your skin is moisturized is so important! Skin that’s properly hydrated looks fresh, has fewer fine lines, and has a more even skin tone. 

Even those with oily skin should be moisturizing. This may sound strange, but sometimes your skin actually produces more oil because it’s not hydrated enough. We’ve all made this mistake too. First, you notice more oil and a few blemishes. Then you panic and start applying drying products hoping it will dry up that extra oil. Unfortunately, this sometimes signals to your skin that it needs to produce MORE oil just to stay hydrated. 

The reason your skin takes hydration so seriously is that without enough water, your skin can’t protect you as well. In case you forgot, your skin is absolutely amazing. It protects you, keeps you warm in the winter, sweats to keep you cool in the summer, and is an indication of your overall health. That’s why we tend to look so haggard when we’re tired, stressed, or overworked. 

So, first things first, drink more water! Regardless of what your skincare routine looks like, you can probably stand to drink more water throughout the day. Second, make sure you’re applying some kind of moisturizer once a day. We like calming moisturizers with plenty of CBD. 

That’s why we put 250mg of CBD in our Second Nature. We won’t go into the full heavy-duty explanation (you can check that out here), but we’ll give you the short version. Your skin responds beautifully to CBD because it has its own endocannabinoid system. This system helps control moisture, inflammation, redness, and even oil production. So, using a moisturizer with CBD means you’re giving your ECS a nice little boost.

On top of that, we’ve added adaptogens like Wild Indigo, Rhodiola, and Ashwagandha to combat cortisol and reduce signs of aging. Plant peptides from orange blossoms and pomegranate help boost collagen and terpenes add soothing aromas and fresh vibes. It may seem like our moisturizer is jam-packed with ingredients, but that’s because it soothes, hydrates, repairs, and nourishes skin.

Help Your Skin GLOW With Enhanced Nourishment

We don’t need a crystal ball to see that dry, dull-looking skin might be in our future. That’s because the cooler temperatures of fall and winter are right around the corner. Cold temperatures aren’t the only thing that can leave your skin feeling less than fresh though. Stress, hormones, dehydration, and even too much screen-time can leave your skin looking tired and irritated.

When this happens to us, we get our glow back by using a Radiance Facial Oil. Even if you’re worried about acne, a rich facial oil can nourish your skin and provide the nutrients your skin may be looking for. If you’re really worried about acne, you can even just add a drop or two to your cleanser and/or moisturizer. As your skin acclimates to the extra moisture, you’ll be able to use more and more without fear.

For those with dry or combination skin, your face will drink up the high-vibing botanicals we’ve infused into our High Glow. With a whopping 300mg of moisturizing, cortisol-quenching CBD, our radiance facial oil is designed to undo the damage of urban living. Apply a few drops to your face in the morning or evening and get ready for dewy, youthful-looking skin. 

We’ve used a blend of seven nourishing oils to provide vitamins, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. This helps strengthen and moisturize your skin barrier while Bakuchiol improves signs of premature aging. Plus, if you really love the effects of this product, you can add a drop or two to your lotion for a full-body glow.
