Glowing with Nuria Beauty | What I've Been Using to Balance Out My Skin
As someone who brunches a lot and tends to be a little generous on the weekends sipping on lots of bubbly, I am constantly making sure that no matter how much fun I have on a Saturday or Sunday I am still maintaining a really solid skincare routine to not let the toxins and dehydration in my skin takeover. I genuinely feel that regardless of just going through every day life, ever since I hit the other side of 25, my skin is way more sensitive than it ever was - it’s more receptive to hormonal changes, the environment and is super prone to acne.
I recently discovered Nuria, a clean skincare line that is designed for transition skin. What’s transition skin might you ask? It’s that challenging combination of hormones, stress, acne, and environmental aging. I’ve never tried a skincare line that was specifically for these kinds of issues so I was instantly drawn to its unique mission knowing that its products are super clean. Created by Chief Scientist and Curator, Naomi Furgiuele, the product line highlights natural ingredients from around the world that women have been using for centuries for their skin.
There are over 1300 ingredients on Nuria’s “made without” list, including Parabens, Sulfates SLS and SLES, Phthalates, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, mineral oil, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, talc, triclosan, triclocarban. Soooo rare!!! Nuria products are also non-toxic, not comedogenic, and cruelty-free. My skin is very sensitive, so it’s really comforting knowing that all these elements aren’t in any part of its collection.
There’s two products in general that I love to incorporate into my skincare routine: toner and serum. Both are pivotal in tackling the underlying issues in the skin. I’ve been absolutely LOVING Nuria’s Hydrate Moisturizing Toner and Defend Skin Restoring Serum.
Hydrate Moisturizing Toner - Perfect for all skin types, helping skin restore its natural balance. Toner is key for me because I naturally have oily skin which in turn creates blemishes. This toner has helped a lot with moisturizing and refining my skin without making it too oily. I struggle a lot with finding products that do exactly what I need (aka, not add any extra oily-ness) so this truly has been a perfect match for me. It contains Mallow Root, Rose Oil, and Chamomile to help soften, hydrate and prep rough, dry skin for any skincare treatments that follow, amplifying their effectiveness. It’s also infused with Aloe Leaf Juice and Cucumber which provides a refreshing, natural glow.
Defend Skin Restoring Serum - Serum is a huge part of my every day skincare routine because it really sinks deep into the skin, to nourish and repair any damage, especially from environmental causes that you just can’t necessarily control. This serum is packed with antioxidants like Rooibos Red Tea and Carrot Seed Oil. Combining the wisdom of Asia and South Africa, this potent formula replenishes nutrients, restores skin balance, and fights dullness caused by environmental toxins, stress, and lack of sleep.
