Sustainable Skincare that Sustains YOU!


by Corey Radman February 18, 2016

The paucity of time is the number one challenge women combat. It's why we're racing around all the time. It's why we so often feel overwhelmed. 

It's why we always put ourselves last.

Given a choice between finishing up the kitchen cleaning, letting the dog out, emptying lunch boxes, or applying a facial mask, most women choose the clean up duty. After all, the former will get stinky faster. The latter is what makes you feel good, though.

We at White & Elm are just as neglectful about these duties. My last mask was 3 weeks ago, but I feel so much better when I get in at least 1 per week. That's why a weekly ritual is important. If every Sunday evening, you blow off the pots, settle in with John Oliver and let your mask dry, that's half an hour of total me time. Seeing your favorite show on will remind you. 

The pots can wait. Sustain yourself instead.

While you may be cleansing, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen, daily. If you’re not exfoliating, your skin isn’t as healthy as it could be. It is very important to exfoliate your face and body all year round. But after the winter, sloughing away all that dead skin seems even more necessary.

How to Find The Perfect SPF: Understanding Sun Protection Factor 101

For sure you need to be wearing a daily moisturizer with a minimum of an SPF 15.  You also need to look for sunscreens that are labeled Broad Spectrum because this means they have passed specific laboratory testing that shows they protect against both UVA and UVB rays.  If you plan to be in direct sun for more than a few hours, please reapply your sunscreen.  Also, if you are planning on swimming or sweating heavily opt for a Water-Proof formula as well.  It's best to avoid chemical sunscreens altogether because let's face it; we don't want the chemicals we put on our skin to end up in our blood stream. Also, because we don't yet know the impact that nanoparticles will have on our health, it's best to use mineral sunscreens that specifically use non-nano minerals.
