If you’ve been in the market for a new cleanser any time this past year, you’ve probably noticed something called a cleansing stick. One of the most recent Korean beauty trends to hit the skin care products market, cleansing sticks are solid face cleansers that look a bit like oversized lip balm (personally, we like to compare them to jumbo glue sticks).
Facial cleansing sticks are usually made with a combination of natural oils and moisturizers. Like with other skin cleansers, cleansing stick formulas are formulated to achieve different skin benefits. At St. Ives, we formulate our Cleansing Sticks with 100% natural coconut oil, then add some of our favorite ingredients (like cactus water, apricot, honey, and green tea, just to name a few!) to make them totally unique. Here’s how they work:
Did we mention they’re also a ton of fun to use? Check out our cleansing stick how-to page for the particulars, but we love being able to precisely target areas of our face. Plus, the solid stick format means that applying product now doubles as a mini facial massage!
Aside from cleansing sticks’ face-cleansing benefits, they’re also spill-proof and bacteria-resistant. Go ahead and toss them into your gym bag or carry-on—cleansing sticks contain very little water and preservatives, so they don’t help those gross microorganisms (read: germs) grow! Getting a fresh, natural glow has never been this fun! Win-win-win.
How to Be Stress Free with 5 Chill Outdoor Activities
How do you deal with stress? If you opt for exercise, meditation, yoga, or journaling you’re on the right track. But do these activities out in nature, and their stress-lowering benefits go to the next level. In fact, just 15 minutes with nature is proven to have a serious de-stress effect!
Curious to know why we love nature so much? Because it has serious benefits and is seriously fun! From lowering stress levels to boosting your mood, keeping you healthier to helping you focus, it’s the cure-all we all need to tap into more.
Fact: Working out is a great way to burn off stress and boost your mood. That’s because exercise has been shown to lower cortisol levels (aka the body’s stress hormone) and release endorphins (the body’s happy hormone). And when you do it in a park, the woods, a beach or any natured-filled space, you get the added benefits of nature!
