Eco-Beauty Tips From Eco-Beauty Queen Lindsey Coffey
Wonder what a beauty Queen does to keep her skin youthful and glowy, plus naturally? We spoke with Lindsey Coffey model and environmental activist and the reigning titleholder of Miss Earth. Lindsey shares her beauty routine with us and shows us how to care for self and planet at the same time. The beauty queen’s routine starts with a great cleanser and she recommends One Love Organics Botanical B Enzyme Cleansing Oil which helps take off all the heavy pageant make-up while upholding the skin’s natural moisture barrier and pH balance. It’s also naturally fragranced with pineapple and citrus and cruelty-free, of course!
And since every great routine must have a moisturizer, Lindsey recommends Origin’s Clear Improvement™ Pore Clearing Moisturizer With Bamboo Charcoal. It offers hydration along with gentle exfoliation from Salicylic Acid and Bamboo Charcoal, and is vegetarian (except honey & beeswax), gluten-free for those with sensitivity, and made without parabens, sulfates or formaldehyde. For a “power” product Lindsey’s go-to is Drunk Elephant’s C-Firma™ Day Serum. “I swear this stuff makes my skin glow. I can see the difference even with all the red-eye flights I take and long days on photoshoots. It’s my holy grail product.” And when she can’t get enough sleep or has to travel a lot, she’s also been relying on The Inkey List Caffeine Eye Cream to help with puffiness and dark circles. “With skincare, I really believe it’s better to prevent issues than to fix them, so I always-always use sunscreen,” says Lindsey, and for that she uses La Mer’s The Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid. “It’s light but offers so much protection!”
For her ultra-pamper days she loves LUSH’s Mask Of Magnaminty which has Kaolin clay and peppermint oil that deep cleans and soothes the skin. The brand also supports communities by buying honey for the mask directly from apiaries local to their manufacturing centers. And lastly, at the end of the cycle, Lindsey recommends discarding the packaging properly. “I love Nordstrom’s BEAUTYCYCLE program which takes all my old product containers and recycles them which will greatly help us move towards a more zero-waste lifestyle. A lot of people think that all these items can be recycled but it’s actually quite challenging for local municipalities to do so. Nordstrom’s is really dedicated to taking on this challenge and aims to recycle 100 tons by 2025.” Thank you Lindsey for all these great recommendations and for helping us stay beautiful while keeping the planet beautiful as well.
