Looking to nail down a beauty routine that’ll keep you looking your best, from head to toe? It all starts with the hair — which you likely want to be shiny, voluminous, healthy and gorgeous. Next? The skin. We all want clear, clean, glowy skin — and with the right skincare regimen, it’s totally attainable. Finally, on to the body. Again, here the ideal is clean, clear, smooth, soft skin — from head to toe. Follow our simple steps for achieving an optimal beauty routine, from your locks to your soft, smooth feet. The trick? Use high-quality products that are free of unnecessary chemicals, smell amazing, and get the jobs done beautifully.

Fit for a Crown: An Ideal Hair Routine

  1. Wash. This one is pretty obvious. If you want your hair to look good, clean it. Doing so every day is totally unnecessary and can actually harm your hair, as it doesn’t allow for your scalp’s natural oils to nourish the hair follicles on their own. Shoot for washing your locks every two or three days. We recommend using Oribe products, which are super luxurious and effective and smell amazing. Their signature shampoo and conditioner are great. If your hair has more specific needs, try something like the Supershine Moisturizing Cream, which is intensely hydrating.
  2. Brush your hair carefully. We love Mason Pearson hairbrushes — they’re an absolute cult classic that was founded over 130 years ago. The family business celebrates the intricacies of craftsmanship and innovation, and their brushes exfoliate the scalp while stimulating circulation. 
  3. Use natural hair care products. This is crucial. There’s no need to harm your gorgeous hair and delicate scalp with harsh, chemical-ridden products. View our collection of good-for-you- hair products here. Dry your hair gently with a gorgeous towel by Blomus. We love the German brands’ line of luscious, super-high-quality towels.
  4. Make sure that you’re eating protein. Protein is essential for, among other things, healthy hair and nail growth — the follicles are formed partially in thanks to protein. Include lean, clean proteins into your diet every single day. 
  5. Avoid using too many heat styling products. Blow drying may be a necessity for you (we recommend this one), but try to save using a flat iron, curling iron, and other heating tools for special occasions. They fry your hair, leaving it damaged and less glossy and healthy in the long term. 
  6. Treat. Your hair may have special needs — it may need some help with volume, may be asking for extra dose of moisture, and so forth. You can find products for whatever it is that your hair needs here, in our hair collection. Where to start? Try this Oribe hair oil, this texturizing mist, this anti-frizz cream, and this multi-tasking mask — you’ll be off to a great start.
  7. Style. Ok, you’re headed out the door and ready to style your locks quickly. You may be in need of a few spritzes of dry shampoo, or may want to do an easy, laid back ponytail. Try these hair ties, which won’t damage your hair. They also come in a pack of neutral, beautiful tones. Think of them as the adult version of the hairbands that you always had on your wrist in high school.

Glow Girl: A Beauty Routine for Your Face

So, what’s an ideal morning and night beauty routine for your face? Follow these skincare steps, and you’ll have healthy, glowing skin in no time. We love Korres products. The Greek company fuses the worlds of science and beauty to create products that promote long-lasting skin health, without causing harm to the environment. They focus on using active ingredients and stay away from using mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffin wax, silicones and other ingredients that’ll do your skin more harm than good. They make clean formulas that’ll work for your skin, regardless of what it needs. Follow these steps for a clear, glowy and healthy complexion:

  1. Cleanse. Try this gentle cleanser. We love to double cleanse with this miracle micellar water, by the cult classic French skincare house Bioderma. There’s no need to wash it off, and will leave your skin feeling even cleaner after a long day. It’s also great for daytime touch-ups.
  2. Tone. This gentle toner will refine your pores and rid your skin of excess oil.
  3. Next? Apply a serum to your visage. Doing so will help to soften your skin, leaving it extra soft and glowy. This is a great pick for anti-aging. Serums are super helpful to use all year long, and they’re especially crucial during the winter, when your skin is more likely to feel and be drier.
  4. Apply some eye cream. There’s an eye cream targeted towards just about everything and anything that you need. We love this one, which restores the skin of the eye area, reduces signs of aging, emphasizes your skin’s natural brightness, and mutes dryness, dark circles and fine lines. It’s a great pick for anyone, regardless of what your specific needs are.
  5. If you’re prone to blemishes or have a blemish or two, spot treat. Try this one, which will work to eradicate blemishes without harming your skin.
  6. Moisturize! Regardless of your skin type, it’s important to use a moisturizer every morning and every evening. Browse our collection here to find one that suits your skin’s needs. This Korres moisturizer is great because it’ll provide your skin with a matte finish and moisture — along with some beautiful fragrance.
  7. Protect your skin from harmful UV rays by using an SPF. Too many steps, not enough time? Use a foundation or tinted moisturizer such as this one, which has SPF in it. This way you don’t need to wait for a layer of sunscreen to soak into your skin before you apply your makeup (if you’re wearing face makeup).
  8. Lip balm! Whether you’re applying makeup or not, moisturize your lips. We love this one, which will provide your lips all-day hydration, moisture and a polished look. Put one in your bag and reapply throughout the day — your lips will look and feel softer, more moisturized, and more beautiful in no time.
  9. And sometimes, mask! Regardless of whether you need to dry your skin out a bit, fight blemishes, provide your face with extra moisture, or up your anti-aging game, there’s a face mask for everyone and every face. Do one every few days, and you’ll work your way towards smoother, glowier skin in no time. You can also save time by using a night mask like this one, so that you can wake up with smoother, healthier skin. Night masks are great time savers for those who don’t want to apply masks during the day, but still want to reap the benefits. Self-care while you sleep? We’re in!

  1. Clean! It may seem obvious, but take a shower. Use a body cleanser such as this one by CO Bigelow. When you get out of the shower, dry off with a luxurious, super-soft towel by Blomus
  2. Exfoliate. Use an exfoliator to scrub off dead skin and leave your skin feeling and looking smoother, softer and more radiant. Try this body polish — it’ll look beautiful on your shower ledge, and will clean your skin thoroughly. 
  3. Shave. You’re an adult now, so it’s due time that you throw away those pink plastic razors and invest in a safe, high-quality razor that’ll last you for years to come and look more polished and beautiful in your shower.
  4. Moisturize. Apply a nice body lotion or body cream to your skin to help it to retain moisturizer. Give your hands an extra dose of moisture, as they’re not covered up during the day and can get especially dry. Try this hand cream, and stash one in your tote and to use on the go. Hand cream is also a great item to have in your desk drawer. A good hand cream will provide your hands with the silky and smooth texture that they deserve — they work hard for you, after all! Bonus? It has a nice, fruity fragrance.
  5. Glow. Let’s face it — vacation time is not a year-round event, as sometimes we can grow a bit pale in complexion. Help your skin to get a bit of a sun-kissed glow back by using a product such as this or this. Both will provide you with a hint of natural looking color. Miss the sun during colder months? Invest in a SAD lamp!
  6. Finally, spritz on a bit of a gorgeous scent. Browse some of our favorites here — there’s a fragrance for just about everyone. Our favorites? The luscious, luxurious scents by powerhouse Tom Ford.

Follow these steps and enjoy smoother, clear skin, bouncy, healthy hair, and a more beautiful appearance in no time.
