Five clean beauty faves for putting your best (natural) face forward.

FaceTime coffee dates with friends. Zoom conference calls. MarcoPolo birthday parties with family. HouseParty cocktail hour with the besties. While you may not be connecting with your loved ones in person, you’re still seeing them virtually. So why not take the extra time we have at home to show ourselves some love — making sure we look our best, naturally. We did a deep dive into our favorite clean beauty products at Getchell’s Apothecary in search of the five must-have items that will help you look and feel your best. Added bonus? Each line mentioned goes to extra care to make sure its formulas are non-toxic and all natural. Call it beauty with a conscience.

Start with a beautiful base.

The Chamomile Lavender Water by Loli — a clean skincare line that lets you take beauty into your own hands — is one of our favorite daily go-tos. It works as a moisturizing cleanser and toner in one, making this the perfect way to start your beauty regiment — in the morning or at night. We love swiping the nourishing water over our skin in the morning for a dewy, make-up free look.

Go for a less-is-more makeup look.

For those days you’re looking for a natural look, without applying heavy concealers and bases, opt for the Velvet Glow Foundation by clean color brand Vapour. The formula boasts skin-toning botanicals to help promote a flawless complexion. We love it because the finish is velvety and matte — and its plant-based list of ingredients doesn’t contain harmful or toxic chemicals.

Unwind those hunched over been-staring-at-my-laptop-all-day shoulders.

We hear you when you say your work-from-home desk set-up is less than ideal for your posture. Rescue stressed shoulders with Indie Lee’s i-Recover Mind & Body Gel. The eucalyptus and menthol gel soothes and revitalizes sore muscles, by way of a gently tingling sensation. We dab a little bit on the back of our neck before bed to help promote extra restful sleep.

Get a head start on your morning-after glow.

Cult favorite Vintner’s Daughter is widely considered the most splurge-worthy beauty product among skincare gurus. The plant-based, all natural Active Botanical Serum and Active Treatment Essence pair for reportedly remarkable results. Looking for glow? You got it in spades. Massage a tiny bit into the skin before bed — it almost takes the place of beauty rest.

Don’t forget hair-care!

Clean beauty shouldn’t just apply to what you’re putting on your skin. That’s why we are obsessed with Rahua’s line of pure, plant-based hair-care products. For extending the longevity of your last salon appointment, use the brand’s Color Full Shampoo and Conditioner, which uses Amazonian lilac clay to reduce brassiness and more and flaxseed oils to nourish each strand.
