What comes to mind when you think about skincare? Complex routines with a million steps? Insanely overpriced products? And how do you know if those products even work? Coming up with a great skincare routine can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t NEED to be!
Lab & Co is here to say “Eff your beauty routine!” We’re a collaboration of exciting indie beauty & wellness brands that use clean ingredients and give clinical results. Our products are pure, potent, and proudly made in the USA!
Here’s a closer look at what we offer along with how you can incorporate these products into your skincare routine throughout the week.
Why is skincare important?
When it comes to a skincare routine, the steps for healthy skin are necessary. In fact, according to Steven Nwe, DO, as reported by Northwestern Medicine, by using regular skincare to invest early in your skin’s health, your skin will keep you looking and feeling your best throughout the year and will be better protected from winter’s harsh effects.[i]
We’d love for you to learn more about our products and how they can keep you looking and feeling great!
During your shower
The next time you stock your shower with your favorite bath time products, make sure our Black Botanical® purifying charcoal cleanser and ExfoliMATE shower cloth are among them! The charcoal cleanser features an all-in-one formula of clarifying botanical extracts, detoxifying activated charcoal, clearing beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), and exfoliating alpha hydroxy acids (AHA). This formula not only clears your skin but helps it look brighter and feel softer. You can use it every day as your all-over body wash, or use it as a deep detox or blemish-beating treatment.
The charcoal cleanser can also be used with ExfoliMATE, an exfoliating cloth that sloughs away dead skin cells and bacteria to give you clean, glowing skin. Since it clears clogged follicles, ExfoliMATE also helps prep your skin for the absorption of acne, sun and tanning treatments.
After your shower
Post-shower is the prime time to apply products that are going to lock in moisture to give you super soft skin! For example, our SKINBOSS body repair lotion and body repair cream, which can be applied twice a day and are most effective after soaking your feet or taking a shower. The lotion and cream work from your head to your toes to gently exfoliate and soften dry skin. The effective formula features a blend of maximum strength alpha hydroxy acids, sugar, fruit acids, and rich emollients to smooth away dead skin cell buildup and help stimulate cellular regeneration.
After your shower is also a great time to soothe your skin with our sweet plum oil, Vitamin C oil or squalane oil. Our sweet plum oil helps nourish and moisturize your skin, hair, nails, and scalp. Loaded with omega fatty acids and beta carotene, it’s more nutritive than other plant-based oils, and also features a blend of pure, vegan, cold-processed plum oils. Simply apply to the damaged ends of your hair, smooth over your skin, or massage into your cuticles or scalp.
Our Vitamin C oil features a blend of nutrient-rich oils that help revive, regenerate and rejuvenate fragile, aging skin without leaving you feeling greasy. With antioxidants and moisture, the oil may help to increase UV-B protection as well as correct hyperpigmentation and age spots.
After cleansing your skin, gently sweep a few drops of our squalane oil over your face and neck and massage it into the skin. With a blend of olive- and sugar cane-derived types, our squalane oil helps drench dry, thirsty skin. It also makes a great base for your makeup or a nice addition to your nighttime moisturizer.
On a daily basis or as needed
Our Butt Acne Clearing Lotion is a product that you can use in the morning and at night. This lotion has been scientifically formulated to help rid the lower back, thighs, and buttocks of acne-like bumps while soothing the skin with ingredients like arnica extract and calendula extract.
Woke & Ready Energizing Facial Mist is another product you can use multiple times a day! This mist combines the antioxidant power of white tea, the aroma therapeutic blend of mint, super hydrating organic aloe vera juice and skin-repairing vitamin B5 to moisturize and strengthen your skin. You can use it prior to your skincare and makeup routines as well as throughout the day for a pick me up!
When it comes to healthy lubricant, CocoLube is here for you. Available in standard or spray options, CocoLube offers a blend of coconut-derived oils for silky, sensuous, long-lasting lubrication. It’s toy-safe, non-toxic, and free of baddies like parabens, silicone, water, glycerin, petrochemicals, and preservatives.
Throughout the week
While some products are great for everyday use, some are better to use a few times a week. Our reSULface® MASK, for example, can be applied 2-3 times per week or as necessary and is great for your face and body. It uses the power of potent sulfur and zinc to purify pores, detoxify skin, and target pimples while niacinamide refines and firms your skin. A small amount can even be used as an overnight spot treatment for stubborn zits!
BambuBrasion Booty Detox Scrub helps give you a soft, smooth rear and is best used 1-2 times per week with three days between applications.
Our Aha! Moment® Champagne Body Peel combines the power of wineberry superfruit and alpha hydroxy acid to lift away dull, dead cells and reveal luxuriously soft, glowing skin. You can use it 1-3 times per week or as needed, and follow it up with lotion for extra-moisturized skin!
Any time you find yourself wishing for a healthy summer glow is a great time to use CLEANTAN. Our plant-based, concentrated formula can be added to your favorite moisturizer, body lotion, serum or oil to give your skin that fresh-off-the-beach, sun-kissed look. Feel free to experiment to find the perfect amount for your desired level of tan! Before using CLEANTAN, prep your skin with our Infinity Body Polisher, which exfoliates skin without creating micro-tears.
