When trekking through Whole Foods for all your summer grilling and snacking needs, do not overlook the beauty department. We’ve assembled our top 10 favorite facial skincare buys you can find there—and bonus!—they are all natural, ethical, or organic.
Weleda Skin Food, $19
The cult level following Skin Food is well deserved—calendula and chamomile make it highly soothing and vital for any type of dry, rough skin—whether on face, hands, body, or feet.
Rose stem cells soothe, while hyaluronic acid and aloe vera are busy hydrating. A great, everyday cream to slather on—at only $25. (I’m a huge fan of the beautifully fragranced rose body lotion, too.)
Full of nothing but nature’s most moisturizing and cleansing oils: coconut, avocado, tea tree, and lavender oil. And all organic, perfect for the first step in removing dirt and makeup.
Sensitive enough for all skin types to gently decongest skin, while absorbing excess oil, drawing pimples and blackheads to the surface, purifying bacteria, and minimizing pores. So good!
Vitamin C is a tricky and unstable product, but it’s highly powerful for anti-aging, so it’s worth finding an effective one. This one is great at reducing the look of lines and aging, and is partnered with sea algae and rosebud to provide anti-aging with a side of moisture.
The OG of natural beauty, and it still stands the test of time. Green apple is very effective for brightening and uneven skin tone with alpha/beta hydroxy fruit acids (i.e. nature’s exfoliants).
I’m a huge fan of both mineral sunscreen, and also brush-on sunscreen. This one is perfect for mid-day SPF reapplication, while also absorbing oil.
You already might be a big fan of a mid-day facial spritz, if so, I invite you to try this certified organic rose water version that is harvested from the Alteya’s family rose farm in Bulgarian Rose Valley. Hydrating, cleansing, and, hey, edible, so you could even use it in foods or drinks if you wanted.
Moisturizing, easily absorbed, weightless, oh, and SPF 50. This cream is also additionally fortified with Kicho’s proprietary soybean plant placenta, which encourages skin rejuvenation and regeneration.
Great for exfoliation for even the most sensitive skin, with a powerful blend of pumpkin puree and fruit extracts that helps clear dead skin cells for a more revived, luminous complexion.
