When I'm in a skincare slump

Is it just me, or do you sometimes get maintenance fatigue?

I have a secret—I actually love winter because it means I don't have to shave my legs as often. Plus I love winter clothes over summer clothes any day! Lately, I've been all about wearing trousers with cozy light jumpers or shirts. On repeat.

I got myself a pair of fabulous black pleated pants from Scanlan and Theodore, and they'll easily last me for 5 years or more. I'm not into having a ton of clothes; I never have been. I prefer having a small selection of cool clothing that I truly love and treating them like heirlooms. But the best winter find was definitely a pair of high-waisted mom jeans from Kmart that only cost me $20. I also found a gorgeous green jumper. The whole outfit cost me $45, and I'll wear them until they fall apart.

So that's my winter wardrobe. Decision fatigue is a real struggle, you know?

I feel the same way about my skincare/body care routine. It's kind of embarrassing considering I own an organic skincare company. But maybe it's just that in winter, all I want to do is hibernate a little longer in my flannel sheets…

But here's what I've learned. Every time I tan my face and body, I get a little hit of dopamine and feel so much better. I always promise myself to do it more often!

So, when I'm keeping it simple, I go for our organic Winter Skin as it’s the perfect self-tanning lotion for a winter glow. It's an amazing product that totally deserves the Genius award it won. It's a two-in-one deal—a body moisturiser and a warm, light golden tan at the same time. It's a gradual tan, so you can make it as dark as you like by reapplying it a couple of times a week and blends perfectly with all skin tones. Plus, it's deeply moisturising and packed with fabulous ingredients like vitamin C, aloe vera, apricot kernel oil, daisy flower, vitamin E, cacao, elderberry, chamomile... and, of course, nothing synthetic and it's vegan.

Face Tan Water is like a mini vacation in a bottle, and I absolutely adore the radiant glow, even & natural complexion it gives my face. It’s sunless tanning! So that's a no-brainer. It only takes 20 seconds—perfect for those times when I'm feeling a bit lazy.

If I had to choose between brushing my teeth and washing my face with Super Citrus Cleanser, I'd definitely pick washing my face! This cleanser instantly lifts my mood in the morning and at night, and the citrus aroma sparks joy.
