After implementing a skincare routine exclusively with Farmhouse Fresh (FHF) products this past month, it’s safe to say the brand has earned the YOGA + Life seal of approval. Its clean beauty standard, consisting of all-natural ingredients and sustainable production practices, has led to a summer glow that I can’t celebrate enough.
It’s never too late (or too early) to commit to taking care of your skin. I’m a firm believer that nourishment starts from within, but the products we use on our face and body matter not only for our own health and wellbeing, but that of the planet as well.
After taking advantage of FHF’s complimentary virtual skincare consultation with their licensed esthetician, I learned more about the brand’s ethos. The FHF headquarters in Texas are home to a ranch where botanicals are grown on site, in addition to a nonprofit farm animal sanctuary. Every product purchased helps fund, rescue and rehabilitate abused animals that their employees help care for. Not only are the farm-to-table products themselves spa-like and results-oriented, but their impact is palpable. The woman-owned business has its skincare made in the U.S. and packaged by hand.
Here was my personal skin regime after disclosing the following criteria to FHF:
- I am 23 years old.
- I have combination, acne-prone skin.
- I live in the dry climate of Colorado.
Step 1: Green Tea Milk Wash
This face wash is creamy and gentle; I love that it doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils but still cleanses makeup and dirt off the skin. The coconut milk and green tea extract boost moisture in the skin, leaving a refreshing finish. $27
This gentle but powerful exfoliator is a stand-out product. I use it two to three times a week to revive my skin. The formula reduces signs of redness and discoloration while leaving your face supple and radiant. The micro sugar crystals are gentle enough for everyday use, but with my sensitive complexion I opt for a few times throughout the week. I found it to be the most effective product for minimizing breakouts. $26
Implementing face masks into my routine has made a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin. I attribute the soft goodness to these two masks. A few times a week, I’ll alternate between the turmeric for when I want a line-smoothing effect and the glycolic mask for a silkier feel. The tingling sensation upon application lasts for one to two minutes and it isn’t too intense. $30/$26
Step 4: Illumination Juice Facial Tonic
While this step is probably the least essential of the bunch, I love the refreshing feel of the mist. The alcohol-free toner brightens and evens the skin and it’s perfect to use throughout the day for a vitamin-infused pick-me-up. $42
This product is a mega hydration boost that I especially appreciate living in Colorado. It truly replenishes the skin, leaving it glistening and dewy. I like to apply lightly underneath moisturizer during the day and use a heavier dose for my nighttime skin care. $58
The milk moisturizer has been my go-to for its ability to hydrate without being too overbearing. It’s lightweight yet creamy, and pairs nicely with the face wash from Step 1. The gel moisturizer was a first for me, but the consistency was a pleasant surprise. I still haven’t transitioned to using it every day, but a few times a week I appreciate its hydrating and soft application. It’s also long-lasting, perfect for days when you’re out and about and need the added hydration layer. I’ve used it as an overnight mask and loved its use there, too. $34/$39
Facial sunscreens are often hit or miss, and I’d highly consider checking out FHF’s mineral take on the product. It applies seamlessly and doesn’t leave a white layer like others I’ve tested often do. I love that it provides SPF 30 protection in addition to other vitamins in the ingredient list. Typically, I prefer scentless face products, but the subtle rosemary and spearmint keep it light. Make sure you re-apply after swimming because it comes off with water! $38
