6 farm-to-face beauty products to clean up your regimen

Keen to go green without radically changing your regular skin care regime? These five farm-to-face heroes will clean up your cabinets (without forcing you to give up on your fave beauty go-tos).

A does-everything salve, Farmacy’s {Honey Savior} soothes scrapes, calms stings and all but eradicates itches. S.O.S. for skin in crisis – whether due to burns (sunburn included), allergies or weird skin rebellions – this blend of antibacterial honey, healing propolis and royal jelly brings calm where there’s chaos. Rich and replenishing, it’s a drink for cracked cuticles, balm for chapped lips and ‘force field’ for dry, scaly patches. Keep one by your bedside, one in your medi-kit and one in your handbag…

The ultimate pick-me-up, Therapie’s phenomenal {Restore Aura} spray is a moment of calm in an elegant bottle. A heady blend of spirit-lifting, soul-soothing and stress-dispelling crystal essences, this mist is a must when you’re feeling fatigued or fragmented. With organic rose and frankincense waters, alongside cold-pressed lemon oil to inspire and energise, this is a desk (and bathroom cabinet) essential.

A suits-all superfood serum, {Youth to the People} source the most potent, plant-derived ingredients – the leafy, vitamin-rich greens you would usually find in your lunchbox – and have distilled their goodness into this featherweight, age-defying elixir. Packed with youth-boosting tripeptides, the {Age Prevention Superfood Firm and Brighten Serum} also boasts a blend of vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to plump, hydrate and gradually diminish visibility of fine lines. It’s a perfect post-cleansing step for man, woman and skin-savvy teenager (prevention is better than cure)!

The eco anti-perspirant, Black Chicken Remedies’ {Axilla Deodorant Paste} is the perfect concession to ‘cleaner’ beauty. Formulated without a single synthetic, this paste boasts a blend of farm-fresh plant extracts to neutralise whiffs, while the high clay content works to ‘mop up’ excess moisture. Sure, it won’t keep your underarms Sahara-esque, but it works brilliantly without clogging pores with potentially harmful metals. 

A miraculous mask, MV Organic Skincare’s {Signature Mineral Mask} is like a weekly M.O.T. for all complexions. Formulated with ultra-refined rare white clay, this conditioning blend ‘feeds’ stressed, sensitive skins with its super-charged cocktail of minerals. Working wonders in seven minutes, this ‘haute natural’ treatment will quickly become a firm skin care fixture.

Fresh from South Korea, Thank You Farmer’s featherweight {Sun Project Light Shimmer Essence SPF30} infuses skin with conditioning shea butter (to enhance elasticity), while niacinamide exhibits a skin-brightening benefit and titanium dioxide creates a physical ‘force field’ between complexion and the ageing effects of the sun and pollutants. The ultimate ‘top coat’, this is an easy way to usher ‘farm-to-face’ into your daily make up menu.
