I’m SO excited to share with you my current skin care routine! I have switched to natural, organic, and nourishing products that my skin absolutely loves! I am passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and always knew that your body absorbs any toxins and chemicals in the products you use on your skin. I wanted to make the switch to more natural ingredients wherever I could! When Athar’a contacted me to try out their line of handmade, organic and vegan skin care products, I immediately went to read the ingredients and couldn’t be more pleasantly surprised. These products are full of nothing but organic fruits, oils, clays… things that come from the earth! You could literally eat these products! hehe. The best part about them is that they are actually effective! They leave my skin so hydrated and glowing. I seriously feel like I’m giving myself a spa treatment every day. I’m hooked! :)
My skin type is normal to combination with my T-zone being more oily and prone to breakouts and the rest of my face more normal. Athar’a has lots of products for all skin types from oily to dry. Read below to see my routine and which products I use.
PS: Athar’a is giving away a gift package full of their amazing products! Make sure to enter their giveaway on Instagram! :)
Wash face with Athar’a’s Neem Oil Soap— good for oily, acne prone skin. I know it sounds scary to be putting oil on already oily skin, but it actually regulates sebum production and helps keep it clear.
Apply Athar’a’s Moroccan Coffee Eye Cream— the caffeine and antioxidants in this cream reduce dark circles and puffiness and prevent wrinkles. It’s an essential.
Apply Athar’a’s Super fruit & Jasmine Antioxidant Face Cream— this one smells Ah-mazing and feels so luxurious!!
Apply SPF moisturizer (I use this one)
Wash face with Athar’a’s Neem Oil Soap using my Olay Pro X skin brush (An affordable option to the Clarisonic. I don’t know how I ever lived without this thing!–just ditch the products it comes with.)
Mist face and neck with Athar’a’s Eastern Goddess Neroli Toner Spray— so refreshing and hydrating. It’s also an aromatherapy which helps with my stress from nursing school ;)
Massage Neem Healing Oil on face, neck, cuticles –I have also been putting this oil on the back of my arms for the little bumps that are so common for many people and it has helped tremendously. And it smells like lavender which I looove.
Twice a Week
Apply Athar’a’s Moroccan Glow Detoxifying Face Mask to clean skin (usually after a shower) in an even layer. It comes in a powder form so you just mix it with water to make a paste (they recommend not to mix it in a metal bowl so whoopsies for me!)
Remove mask once it begins to dry by washing it off with warm water– it makes my face feel soo soft!!
Then I mist my face with the Neroli toner spray and apply my neem oil and I feel like I just had a facial. :)

Robe: Ralph Lauren color “Trose”– in love! (also comes in a lighter pink and light gray)
