Heather Urquhart’s Skin Care Routine

This winter, Huna was so thrilled to have partnered up with the wonderful Earthlove, a seasonal subscription box filled with eco-conscious goods for leading a holistic, more earth-centered life. Earthlove thoughtfully sources products that are ethically responsible, including zero waste packaging, natural ingredients, cruelty-free, organic and non-GMO, gluten-free, beegan/vegan, and fair-trade. Earthlove also supports artisans, makers, and small businesses in the US & Canada. Huna’s vegan formulation of a classic cult-favourite product, Nourish Skin Nutrition Balm, was featured in this Winter’s Subscription Box.

Heather sits down with Earthlove and shares her secrets to a youthful, glowing, and healthy complexion.

“My beauty routine begins internally, providing my body with essential hydration and nutritious foods.  I eat a healthy organic whole food diet, take herbal supplements and probiotics, and I keep hydrated with water and herbal teas throughout the day.  I then implement that same philosophy into my skincare routine, giving my skin the delicious nutrition, it needs.  My skin routine stays pretty consistent in that I always have a twice daily cleanse/treat/moisturize routine and a weekly exfoliate/mask regimen.  But I do switch up the products in my skin routine based on the seasons and how my skin is responding. I love to intuitively listen to my skin’s needs, and we try to encourage that at Huna as well.”

 

Step One

I absolutely love the Huna Revitalize Cleansing Crème to cleanse my skin without stripping my skin’s moisture, both morning & night.  My skin seriously loves this stuff.  It is so moisturizing and removes every last bit of my makeup, sunscreen, and grime from a long day.  Even eye-makeup removes easily with the Cleansing Crème.  It leaves my skin feeling perfectly cleansed, soft and smooth.

Step Two

Sometimes I follow with Huna Botanical Face Mist in the morning or throughout the day, for a refreshing hydration boost…it’s like a thirst-quenching drink for skin.  At night, I loyally use our Huna Exfoliate Fruit Extract Face Toner.  This product is my holy grail for waking up with fresh-looking, clear, bright, and even-toned skin each and every morning.  It is an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) formula made from 100% fruit acid extracts- think oranges and lemons. It also contains strawberries which are a natural source of salicylic acid, so it really busts through blemishes overnight too.  I’m a huge fan of a good dual-purpose product.

Step Three

I am crazy proud of our Firming Eye Cream.  It is a highly-effective vegan formula made with sea kelp, vegetable ceramides, cocoa, and vegan hyaluronic acid.  It is very lightweight, quick-absorbing, non-greasy.  You will feel it immediately hydrate, soothe, and soak into skin right away.  I formulated it specifically to address all of the key first signs of aging which impact the eye area- dehydration, dark under-eye circles, puffiness, lack of firmness, decreased elasticity, and fine lines.  This puppy is my saving grace.  I am prone to very dark under-eye circles, so I use it day and night.  I am never without it.

Step Four

I always follow with the Revitalize Age-Grace Face Serum.  Hydration, Antioxidants, and Polyphenols.  You need those three essentials covered every single day to maintain optimal skin health.  This is Huna’s signature beauty staple and longstanding #1 seller- and for very good reason.  The Revitalize Age-Grace Face Serum provides deep phytonutrient-rich hydration- yet soaks in super-fast, feels ultralight and silky smooth.  It delivers potent antioxidant protection to protect skin from the premature aging effects of environmental free radical damage.   Use it in the morning to protect your skin all day, and use it at night to support the skin’s natural repair process.

Step Five

If I need an extra moisture boost (especially in Canada’s cold winter months), then I’ll use Huna Skin Nutrition Balm to nourish, repair, regenerate, and deeply moisturize my skin.  It makes such a great overnight skin treatment.  The Skin Nutrition Balm is amazing- it instantly moisturizes, and skin looks healthy and nourished immediately.  It really seals in moisture and protects skin from trans-epidermal moisture loss.  I love using it as a nightly facial treatment- it feels really good waking up to baby soft, smooth, hydrated and supple skin.

It’s all about learning to listen to your skin.  Your skin communicates to you constantly, but most of us don’t know how to listen.  A rash on your face is more than just a rash.  It might be telling you that your digestive health needs attention, like perhaps it is trying to communicate a dairy allergy or sensitivity to you.  Learn to listen to your skin, and fall in love with your skin.  Develop a lasting relationship with your beautiful skin- it does so much to protect and keep you safe every day.
