This January, we are Giving The Process: For each of the first 30 days of the month, we’re highlighting something—and someone—amazing in the wellness world, representing the beauty, health, style, creative, energetic and/or spiritual boost you need to make yourself a priority in the new year—and decade. On January 31, one charmed follower will win one of every item and ritual we highlight, including a $1,000 gift card for Live The Process!
They say it takes 30 days to create a habit—sign ups for our newsletter, follow us on IG and tell us how you’re hoping to make taking care of your physical, emotional, intellectual and/or spiritual self a priority this year—to make 2020 about self-care without guilt.
Today’s gift is Tracie Martyn’s Absolute Purity Toner + Complexion Savior.
My name is: Marius Morariu.
I’m known for being: The co-founder and natural skincare developer of Tracie Martyn Beauty and Wellness.
I'm sharing: The ultimate, New Year’s resolution, clean and green skincare detox duo: Absolute Purity Toner (An East-meets-West cocktail of organic antioxidants in an organic lavender water base) and the gemceuticals powered Complexion Savior gel mask, featuring detoxifying and super-antioxidant malachite crystal.
You can find it at: traciemartyn.com.
What inspired me to develop it was: A lack of natural products that perform well, an abundance of petrochemical-based skincare containing scary chemicals and my vision to offer a solution, where neither safety nor efficacy are compromised.
What makes it special is: The synergy of amazing natural ingredients in the right concentrations and combinations to create a delightful skincare ritual that is simultaneously overachieving in performance and delicious to experience. This combo is self-care in a bottle (or two).
One thing you can’t miss is: The beautiful jade color and cooling feeling of the Complexion Savior (like a tall glass of water for your skin) and the subtle, but wonderful scent of the Absolute Purity Toner (like a walk through a lavender field)—with the bonus of an amazing skin glow at the end.
Your body will thank you because: It is your temple and you made it nice! Engaging your senses is a form of meditation and caring for your skin is caring for your largest organ and your communication vehicle to the outside world.
This will help you prioritize your own health, joy and energy this year because: You will become more aware and in tune with yourself and nature while using natural ingredients in your self-care ritual. You’ll be building your self-esteem and self-love and also your appreciation for Mother Earth, who provides all of our nourishment (in this case, in form of superfoods and vitamins for your skin).
My favorite personal short ritual for self-care in 2020 is: Deep breathing: Inhale the fresh, green, herbal and citrus scent of the Amla Purifying Cleanser before you wash your face with it in the morning.
Applying the Complexion Savior gel mask and meditating for 10 minutes, while listening to ocean sounds and imagining my skin drinking in all the hydration and nutrients.
Washing off the mask and splashing on the lavender-scented Absolute Purity Toner.
Next, massaging the flower power Organic Bulgarian essential oil-scented Face Resculpting cream into my skin in upward strokes to uplift both my face and my spirit.
Finally, finishing with feelings of gratitude for the inspiring experience, having “charged my battery" and my skin.
