What You Need to Go Makeup Free | Easy Fresh Face Skincare Routine
The goal here is to spend less time on your routine, so we don’t want to replace an hour of makeup application with an equally-involved skincare routine. We recommend establishing the best skincare products for your skin and sticking to them. Some of these steps, such as exfoliation and the face mask, you’ll only need once a week—maybe when you want to unwind with a glass of wine after a long week. And you may only need your routine once a day as opposed to both morning and night. Some products may allow you to double up—like our Tea Tree Charcoal Bar that both cleanses and exfoliates in one. Every face is different, so you can adjust as you need.
*One of the biggest keys to naturally glowing skin is hydration! You can have the best skincare routine, but your skin will suffer if you aren’t drinking enough water.
Here’s Mumu Bath’s all-natural, organic makeup-free skincare lineup:1. Exfoliant
Try to exfoliate your skin and remove excess dirt, oil, and dead skin with a gentle exfoliant one to two times per week. You could go the (natural) chemical route with salicylic or glycolic acid (which are found in fruits and vegetables). Or, you could gently buff away dead skin and resurface with a sugar, oats, seeds, baking soda. Try our Tea Tree Charcoal Bar to draw out impurities, purify skin, cleanse, and gently exfoliate all in one! It’s especially good for acne-prone skin.
Gently cleanse your skin morning and night (or just at night before applying moisturizer if you prefer). Our Signature Hydrating Facial Bar is the most popular calming face cleanser, and I personally love our refreshing and light Rose Pink Clay Soap. Or, give yourself a mini facial every day with Mumu Bath’s French Clay Facial Soap, which is great for those with rosacea, wrinkles, or sagging skin.
Use a toner to even skin tone by keeping it nourished and hydrated. Our French Clay Facial Bar doubles as a cleanser and toner. The geranium oil tightens and protects skin. It’s good for sensitive, acne-prone, and combination skin types and gentle enough to use every day.
4. Face Mask or Face Serum
It’s important to give your skin an extra boost every now and then. Our faces are exposed to the elements, blue light, and pollutants every day. Add a concentrated dose of skin-loving ingredients to keep it feeling soft, supple, and refreshed. Our new Repair & Deep Hydration Face Serum has a light, natural scent. It contains naturally-sourced nourishment from CQ10, argan oil, squalene from olives, green tea extract, apple extract, and rose absolute.
Even if you have oily skin, it’s important to moisturize every day. In fact, if you regularly apply a light, noncomedogenic moisturizer, your skin will start to produce less oil over time to help manage oily skin and prevent breakouts. Mumu Bath’s Deep Moisture Face & Hand Cream to wake up with soft, refreshed skin every morning with hydration that lasts through the day.
Don’t forget to protect that gorgeous skin with some SPF. Apply in the morning. Be sure to regularly reapply throughout the day if you’re out enjoying the fresh air and vitamin D!
7. Eye & Lip Care
One of the biggest secrets to a fresh makeup-free face is keeping your lips moisturized and plump and your eyes bright. Give them a little TLC with products just for them.
For bright eyes, try Mumu Bath’s Whipped Coffee Eye Mousse to boost circulation and minimize puffiness. Plus, it smells amazing—just what you need to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go in the morning.
We also have a soft and creamy natural lip balm with a hint of shine and color in five dreamy flavors. Plus, it’s twice the size of a standard chapstick, so it’ll last you longer.
