Holistic Skincare By Skin Type


Holistic skincare is much more than choosing the right products; it's a philosophy that unites body, mind, and spirit.  We explore a holistic skin care routine by skin type including pure plant-based treatments, wholesome foods, and supportive lifestyle choices to support vibrant vitality in body, mind and spirit, which are so intimately interconnected. 

What Does Holistic Skincare Mean?

Holistic skincare is all-encompassing–nurturing not just the skin but the whole self. 

This philosophy brings together the pure, potent power of natural ingredients with the art of personal care. By supporting the health of the body, peace of mind, and joy of the spirit, we create a complete circle of wellness which is reflected in the skin’s natural balance and beauty. 

When we work with nature’s perfect pace and traditional herbal remedies, we can enjoy the long-term benefits of holistic care over the quick fix, to reveal true radiance.

Rest and Rejuvenation 

There is no substitute for the rejuvenating power of a good night's sleep. Truly restful slumber—ideally a solid eight hours of sleep—is the perfect elixir for healthy skin and unlocks the full spectrum of benefits. When we sleep, our body goes into a mode of repair and renewal.

During deep sleep, our skin's blood flow increases, allowing collagen to rebuild and repair UV and other environmental damage.  

Stress Management 

Stress, with its subtle yet profound impacts, can manifest visibly on our skin. When we encounter stress, our body releases cortisol, a hormone that not only disturbs our emotional equilibrium but can also exacerbate skin issues like inflammation and breakouts, and may even hasten the signs of aging.

Incorporating tranquil rituals into daily life can significantly mitigate these effects, nurturing both skin and spirit. We can find solace and rejuvenation in nature, an age-old sanctuary that aligns us with Earth’s gentle rhythms. 

Whether it's spending an afternoon nurturing your garden, wandering through a lush forest, or letting the ocean’s waves kiss your feet, each moment spent in nature invites calm and fosters a profound connection to the world around us.

Mindfulness and meditation offer powerful reprieves from the chaos of daily life, centering thoughts and soothing the spirit in just a few quiet moments each day. Likewise, engaging in creative endeavors like painting or writing opens up channels for expression and joy, enriching our days with serenity and a sense of fulfillment. Such simple practices help to renew our inner peace and, by extension, the health and vitality of our skin.



Each decision about what we eat can steer us towards supporting and nourishing skin or contribute to imbalances.

Embracing a diet of pure, organic foods and enjoying fruits and vegetables in their natural state can truly transform your skin. 

Foods rich in water and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients are so important as they help hydrate the skin. Cucumbers, celery, and watermelon are particularly hydrating and packed with vitamins and minerals to support resilient, vibrant skin.

Citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, and grapefruits are also wonderful because they are excellent sources of vitamin C. This is crucial for collagen production, helping to keep the skin firm and elastic while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. 

A simple juice blend—perhaps spinach, cucumber, green apple, ginger, and lemon is not only a delightful refreshment but a powerful elixir for your skin.

Dandelion, nettle, and green tea are all great options to support detoxifying the skin from within.

It’s also wise to reduce the intake of foods that can promote inflammation and dullness, such as processed items, refined sugars, and dairy. 



Movement enhances circulation, nourishing our skin cells by increasing the flow of oxygen and nutrients, and giving our skin a vibrant, healthy glow. 

Engaging in regular physical activities like yoga or brisk walking not only helps reduce stress—crucial for preventing issues like breakouts or dullness—but also promotes lymphatic drainage. This gentle internal cleansing process naturally detoxifies the skin, aiding in the removal of toxins that can clog pores and dull our complexion. Perspiration during exercise also helps clear out the pores, removing toxins that can clog them.

Find an activity you love that doesn’t feel like a chore to fit into your daily routine—it could be dancing, hiking, or even gardening. The key is consistency and enjoyment. By incorporating regular movement into your routine, you’re not just caring for your skin; you’re enhancing your overall well-being, allowing your natural beauty to shine brightly.

Holistic Skincare Routine By Skin Type: Formula Selection

Skin thrives on plant-based ingredients and the following protocols for a natural skincare routine bring care for each skin type. 

Dry Skin

Begin with Cleansing Milk, a hydrating, gentle cleanser, followed by Bulgarian Rose Water to tone and balance the complexion. Treat the delicate area around your eyes with Awakening Eye Gel, to help keep this area moisturized, and nourish deeply with several drops of precious Quintessential Serum. In the morning, layer in protection with Intensive Repair Balm and in the evening apply Celestial Rose Crème

Twice weekly, revitalize the complexion with micro-exfoliating Epi-Peel and treat it to a full lavish restoration with Restorative Radiance Masque, revealing your optimal hydration and radiance.

This routine also supports dehydrated skin. Signs of dehydration often include skin that may feel tight, a lack of plumpness, and a general sense of skin discomfort or dullness. Address dehydration by infusing the skin with moisture-binding ingredients, for example, our Bulgarian Rose Water, to help restore its luminous, well-hydrated state.

Consider adding omega-rich foods like avocados and almonds to your meals—they’re wonderful for maintaining moisture. Staying well-hydrated will also support dry skin’s natural plumpness and glow.

Sensitive Skin

For sensitive skin, washing your face with soothing Cleansing Milk is ideal for a non-irritating cleanse which respects the skin’s natural barrier. Follow with calming Roman Chamomile Tonic to gently tone and relieve sensitivity. 

Gentle Awakening Eye Gel addresses the delicate eye area while Plant Milk Serum, formulated with Mountain Arnica and White Lily, offers an overall treatment to soothe and calm even the most sensitive complexions

In the morning, apply Spontaneous Recovery Crème for protective hydration, if your skin is not only sensitive but also dry. In the evening, switch to Celestial Rose Crème for its restorative properties. 

Enhance your care routine two to three times a week with the Epi-Peel, a gentle exfoliant that helps to maintain a smooth and soothed complexion.

Exploring mindfulness meditation could offer a serene break in your day, helping ease skin stress. Keeping a food journal may also gently reveal any dietary triggers that affect your skin’s comfort.

Combination Skin

For combination skin, start with Purifying Cleansing Gel for a balanced cleanse without overstripping natural oils. Follow with  Essential C Tonic, which invigorates and brightens the complexion with a range of citrus remedies. 

Nourish the eye area with Awakening Eye Gel and address active blemishes with Clarifying Dermagel, our spot-treatment formulated with Thyme, Tea Tree Oil and Myrrh, and hydrating Aloe Vera. Luminous Morning Crème is the best moisturizer for optimally hydrating skin in the morning, and in the evening use Celestial Rose Créme to  restore the complexion

Enhance your routine with Epi-Peel and Purifying Luculent Masque twice weekly to encourage a more refined, radiant complexion.

Incorporating leafy greens and antioxidant-rich berries can naturally help balance oil production. Consider using a humidifier to help ease dryness and encourage balance, especially in winter.


Oily Skin

For oily and acne prone skin, follow the same revitalizing routine as combination skin, with one key variation. Use the Luminous Morning Crèmeboth in the morning and at night for balanced, effective hydration to best support this type of complexion.

You might find that reducing dairy and refined sugars can subtly improve your skin’s condition. Keeping well-hydrated is also key, helping the skin to manage sebum levels and promoting a clearer complexion.


Mature Skin

Our protocol for mature skin begins with Cleansing Milk, a nurturing start to cleanse the skin without drying. Follow with Bulgarian Rose Water, to tone, refresh and deliver a burst of hydration to the skin. Treat the delicate eye area with ultra-nourishing Awakening Eye Gel, to soothe and quench tired eyes. Our ultra-concentrated Quintessential Serum is your next step, providing a wealth of nutrients to the skin. 

Moisturize with Spontaneous Recovery Crème in the morning for its hydrating and protective qualities. At night, allow Celestial Rose Crème to support the skin's natural repair processes.

Twice to three times a week, incorporate Epi-Peel for gentle exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, enhancing the skin's texture and radiance. Complement this with the Restorative Radiance Masque, a luxurious treatment that revitalizes and brightens, leaving skin replenished and full of life. 

Gentle physical activities, like yoga, can boost circulation and encourage a natural glow. Aim for plenty of restorative sleep to help skin naturally repair and rejuvenate.
