Skincare Essentials

 

I had the immense pleasure of meeting the Biotherm team a few months ago for a little press trip in Santa Barbara. We learned all about the brand, did yoga, had amazing food, relaxed, and got to try out all the amazing new products they were launching. Now I’m German/Canadian, so I knew about Biotherm before, but it surprised me how few Americans knew about it. It’s not sold in stores here, but has been available for many years online at Biotherm-USA.com. Biotherm was always the brand my older sister would buy and I would borrow (sorry Sina!) and it was amazing how every product actually works, how fresh it smells, and the amazing experience you feel during and after. 

I wanted to outline a few of my favorite products that I’ve been using non-stop since that trip in June below:

Clarisonic Mia Fit + Biotherm Total Renew Oil

MORNING + EVENING

 

If you’ve never tried a Clarisonic before, it’s about high time you did! It’s amazing how much dirt and makeup still stays on our faces when just using our hands. You can try doing it yourself, then using a clarisonic after and you can see how much residue is still remaining on the brush head. So since discovering this, I’m completely converted and always first wash my face, then wash it again with my Mia Fit, both in the morning while showering and at night before bed.

Biotherm Life Plankton Mask

SEVERAL TIMES A WEEK (OR AS OFTEN AS NEEDED)

 

This mask is probably my favorite product Biotherm has ever released. I use it whenever my skin is acting up, whether its dehydrated, I’m breaking out, or my skin looks tired. Literally for everything. And then my face just instantly looks and feels better. The applicator is so easy to use and the mask doesn’t dry or get messy.

Biotherm Life Plankton Essence

AFTER TONER, IN THE MORNING AND EVENING, BEFORE MOISTURIZING

 

Life Plankton is the key to Biotherm’s skin care expertise and has been protected by 8 patents. This powerful active ingredient has the amazing ability of being skin-friendly while being extremely protective and equally soothing. It’s infused at the highest concentration for the first time in this formula (5%). It’s just one of those life savers, and so easy to use. Just a few drops patted onto your face after cleansing and toning, before your moisturizer, and you’ll see the results in 8 days, from brighter skin, to fine lines reduced, to an even skin tone, you name it!

Biotherm Aqua-Gelée

AFTER SHOWERING

 

The fastest and easiest body lotion I’ve ever used, Biotherm has nailed gel moisturizers. Goes on so quickly, smoothly, and is instantly absorbed, hydrates up to 48 hours, and smells fresh too.

Biotherm Wonder Mud

A FEW TIMES A WEEK

 

A pore-refining mask that only takes 3 minutes? Yes please! You can even just use it for your trouble areas like your t-zone. Plus an exfoliating mask that wipes on easily? Double yes.

Biotherm Aquasource Everplump

OVERNIGHT

 

I always try to add a little extra moisture at night, especially since now we should be keeping our face moisturized to combat aging effects (yes something we do have to think about), and this Aquasource Everplump is slightly more concentrated moisture than Aquasource itself. The gel-like texture, again, just goes on so instantly, is so light and quickly absorbed, your skin can actually breathe once it’s on.
