Starting a Skin Care Regimen

Changing to an all natural (or any new) skin care regimen can be a daunting task. Building a regimen tailored to your unique skin needs is the first step toward achieving beautiful, glowing skin.

When your skin care regimen is correctly dialed in it will leave you feeling like you just finished a spa facial in your own home. Getting to this point can take a bit of trial and error, but at Brown Barn Botanicals you need not be afraid – we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee policy – you can return any skin care product within 30 days of purchase for a full refund that includes your return shipping costs.


If you are unsure where to begin we suggest starting with a cleanser and a mask or exfoliator since they give the quickest results.

Typically the sequence of your skin care regimen will look something like this: cleanser, exfoliator and/or mask (a few times per week), toner or elixir, serum, eye products, face oil and/or creme moisturizer.

We recommend adding each product one by one until you’ve found exactly the right match to your skin type. Take note of what does and does not work or feel right for your skin and try making minor adjustments first (in other words don’t give up too soon!). For example, if the moisturizer feels too light perhaps add a face oil or switch to a creme in the evening. If your moisturizer feels too heavy try using less or gliding it on over damp skin.


Important – don’t panic if your skin breaks out when starting a new product or routine!┬áIf you are new to natural skin care, or to Brown Barn Botanicals, your skin may react by detoxing itself. In fact, it is more common to break out at first when making a major change than to not break out. An adjustment period as your skin purges chemical build up is normal. It typically takes up to six weeks for skin to adjust to any new product so be kind and patient with your skin, it’ll pay off in the end!

If breakouts from new products continue for a long period of time (over two weeks), then it might need a different option. Test things one at a time and identify what feels heavy, or oily, or drying. These are key indicators of something not being right. That said, sometimes you yourself may need an adjustment period in order to get used to a high quality natural product. For example, sometimes an oil can feel very “oily” when you first use it but as your skin adjusts you find it sinks in quite quickly!
