While it's safe to say that everyone has been hoping for a reset this new year, 2021 is starting off to be just a stressful as last year. Self-care is as important as ever as we deal new developments in health, politics, employment, and everything else. In a bid to produce more soul-soothing wellness products, Alicia Keys has just launched six new skincare products with matching affirmations to benefit both skin and soul. Just like her initial skincare product in Keys Soulcare, these six additions were formulated with board-certified dermatologist and W3LL PEOPLE co-founder Dr. Renée Snyder. Snyder tells Byrdie that the products are all clean and are formulated without 1,680 FDA and EU-restricted cosmetic ingredients.
Joining Keys Soulcare's initial product lineup of the Skin Transformation Cream (featuring retinol alternative bakuchiol), Sage + Oak Milk Candle and Obsidan Face Roller are the following new offerings:
Described as a "delicate, soothing facial pore cleanser," the Golden Cleanser is formulated with New Zealand Manuka honey, turmeric, and chamomile. Mind Body Green writes that Manuka honey contains a rich amount of methylglyoxal (MGO) that makes it a potent antimicrobial ingredient in skincare. It eases inflammation, helps control acne and promotes wound healing. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties while chamomile is well-known for its soothing benefits. Since the Golden Cleanser is packed with these three potent ingredients, your skin will enjoy a gentle, but thorough cleansing. The affirmation for the Golden Cleanser is "I am devoted to this moment."
A water activated powder exfoliator, it transforms into a foam with microgranules to get rid of dullness and reveal more radiant skin. This exfoliating powder contains an ancient green tea powder called Hojicha, mung beans, oats, and lactic acid. Use every couple of days for best results. The affirmation for the Be Luminous Exfoliator is "I am layered, complex and divine."
This purifying face mask has New Zealand Manuka honey, activated charcoal and gold foil to give you radiant skin fit for royalty. Its soothing scent of sandalwood will elevate your mood while you relax and let the mask restore your skin's glow. The affirmation for the Harmony Mask is "I walk in my own strength."
This naturally rose-scented revitalizing mist hydrates and tones skin with witch hazel and Rose of Jericho. Enjoy some aromatherapy in the middle of a stressful day with a few spritzes of this mist and remember the affirmation, "I am as free as the air."
This multipurpose balm can be applied on the lips, cuticles, elbows, heels and anywhere else that needs a spot of moisture. The lightweight and vanilla-scented balm has camelia seed oil, Rose of Jericho, avocado oil, and shea butter to give vital hydration to dull and dry skin. The Comforting Balm's affirmation is "I surround myself with things that are good for me."
This cream is simply the fragrance-free version of Key's Soulcare's first Skin Transformation Cream and has the same affirmation which is, "I welcome all circumstances as catalysts for change."
