Nicole Walker

Looking for some basic, natural yet nourishing skincare routines? Read on! The lovely folks at UpCircle Beauty have some great recommendations for routines and products to fit into your day. It’s important to have a regular regime that not only suits your skin type but is easy to do. UpCircle chooses simple ingredients in their easy-to-use range proven to nourish your skin, all while reinforcing their core mission of rethinking skincare habits. Make sure to check out their products in our Summer Sale NOW ON!

At UpCircle we LOVE a simple skincare routine – other than upcycling ingredients it’s what we’re known for! We’ve put together some of our favourites into 3 simple & easy to follow routines. Some say it takes 28 days to root a new habit. So, let’s get started…

Cleanse & Clear

Beginning your day with a great facial cleanse is essential, whether getting rid of excess oils, make-up, grime, or any other impurities. UpCircle’s Cleanse & Clear routine hydrates and revitalizes complexion, giving you a healthy-looking overall glow.

Step 1 – It’s no surprise our Cleansing Face Balm with Apricot Powder is one of our bestselling products! This make-up-artist-favourite helps get rid of any lingering blemishes, from makeup remnants (I’m looking at you, waterproof mascara!) to other pollution. Containing finely ground apricot stone powder, it gently boosts skin with lush Vitamin E.

Next, lather up the Cinnamon + Ginger Chai Soap Bar with some warm water. Not only does the zesty citrus scent offer a fabulous wakeup to revive tired skin, but the pink clay gently exfoliates and soothes any irritations from the night before. Any makeup or impurities that made it past the Cleansing Balm will be stopped short by this double cleansing duo.

Finally, finish up with our award-winning Face Moisturiser with Argan Powder. Made using the fine powder from discarded argan shells, this is a staple in any skin routine to nourish and hydrate for the day ahead.

And there you have it! One simple, wholesome morning cleanse routine.

Redness Reducer

Admit it. We ALL get those imperfections from time to time. Here are a couple of products to help smooth skin and reduce the appearances of blemishes.

You don’t need a breakout to enjoy the UpCircle Kaolin Clay Face Mask! This gently soothing and detoxifying mask is made from upcycled powdered olive stones and will leave your skin looking and feeling wonderfully refreshed. Natural anti-inflammatories will help battle breakouts and tackle acne.

Step 2, it’s a fruity fav – the UpCircle Face Toner with Mandarin + Chamomile, made using repurposed chamomile, upcycled green mandarin fruit extract and hydrating Hyaluronic acid. Just a spritz will leave your skin both balanced and brightened.

Skincare shouldn’t stop when the sun goes down. Finish off with our soothing & strengthening Night Cream. Packed with replenishing niacinamide and Vitamin A from repurposed blueberries, this product promotes a good night sleep whilst hydrating and restoring your skin. Dreamy!

Hello Healthy Glow!

The glow up is real! OK, you may have your tried ‘n tested skincare routine down, but there’s always room for improvement. After all, you don’t just want good healthy skin, you want AMAZING healthy skin.

For a great, deep, detoxifying cleanse, use our Chocolate Charcoal Soap Bar. Packed with activated charcoal it clears and tightens pores whilst brightening the skin. Perfect for first thing in the morning, right before bed, or even for a mid-day cleanse (that’s a cleanse after our own heart)!

The Organic Face Serum with Coffee Oil will be sure to seal the deal – literally! This award-winning product, made from rosehip and upcycled antioxidant rich coffee, locks in moisture and boosts collagen, ensuring all that hard work stays put. 100% oil-based means not only is it 100% natural, but it goes after moisturiser and not before.

And finally, whether you’re sweating in the city or basking on the beach this summer, a good SPF is a must. Keep your skin healthy and protect yourself from damage caused by UV radiation with this SPF 25 Mineral Sunscreen. Upcycled raspberry seeds help protect from free radicals, and lavender oil helps keep breakouts away. Go on my sun!

Skincare is important but shouldn’t overcomplicate things. Whatever your needs, lifestyle or skin type we hope you enjoy trying out these UpCircle favs and are inspired for your own individual daily skincare routine.

UpCircle Beauty is the UK’s #1 upcycled beauty brand, making sustainable skincare from ingredients that would usually go to waste. They’ve rescued over 400 tonnes of coffee grounds alone! They’re also featured in our Summer Sale, so it’s the perfect time to try out their range of vegan, cruelty-free & natural products.
