Quarantine gave many of us a lot more time at home. Self-care and taking care of yourself is more important than ever, as well as optimizing your beauty routine. Here are a few of our favorite discoveries during quarantine:
Haven’t made it to your facialist in months? Bring the results of a dermatologist’s office to you with Perfect Image peels. These 30ml minimalist bottles contain specially formulated peels made up of gentle acids and pure ingredients, and each bottle yields 15-30 peel applications. Created by a chemist in 2007, he saw a need in the market for professional-strength chemical peels at a price more affordable to consumers. Peel options include Glycolic, Salic, Lactic, and Pineapple Pumpkin Enzyme and are Paraben-Free, Gluten-Free, Phalate-Free and Cruelty-Free. The result? Skin that is smoother, plumper, firmer, more hydrated, and a reduction in wrinkles. Starting at $24.99
Most of us won’t be doing any exotic travel anytime soon, but you can take the wonders of the Amazon and its beautifying organic ingredients to your own home with Rahua Beauty. Rahua is rainforest grown beauty that is affordable and sustainable that is produced by the Quechua-Shuar tribe in the same complex, ritualistic, and sustainable fashion it has been for generations. Founder Fabian Lliguin, who had long worked to support the rainforest’s indigenous people, didn’t want to disrupt this process, and more than 500 families from the Quechua-Shuar, Achuar, and neighboring tribes work with Fabian and his wife and business partner Anna to cultivate the rainforest grown ingredients used in the collections.
