SLX Selects: Our Newest Skincare Obsessions for an All-Natural Glow

New seasons call for new self-care rituals. The start of autumn brings cooler temperatures and drier air, which may leave your skin feeling a bit lackluster compared to your glowy summer self. To keep your skin looking like the radiant diosa that you are, we’ve compiled a list of our current skincare product obsessions made by our favorite Latinx-owned brands. From gentle foaming cleansers to peptide serums to UV protection (yes, you still need this in the fall, mija!) — we’ve got your whole skincare routine covered. All-natural, all vegan, all SLX-approved. ✨

LAGUNA CLEANSING MICELLAR WATER – BECALIA BOTANICALS

Meet the first step in your skincare routine: The Laguna Cleansing Micellar Water by Becalia Botanicals. Wipe away impurities and awaken your skin with this gentle cleanser. Tiny micelles, or oil molecules, expertly whisk away dirt, oil and makeup, while a careful blend of all-natural botanicals — calendula, sunflower, aloe, marshmallow, yucca, caffeine and Irish moss extracts — softly soothe the skin. This perfectly crafted formula goes above and beyond your regular drugstore micellar water.

ANOINTED VITAMIN C CLEANSER – SISTINE

Follow up with the Anointed Vitamin C Cleanser by Sistine, a non-abrasive foaming cleanser enriched with 15% Vitamin C. Composed of organic coconut, aloe vera and borage seed oil— this nutrient-rich lather delivers a luminous glow by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, improving skin texture and serving as a barrier against environmental stressors. It’ll leave your skin feeling extra refreshed and pristinely clean, without stripping your natural oils.

BLUE VELVET SERUM FACIAL SOAP – BELADOCE BOTANICALS

This is our new go-to cleanser for sensitive, break-out prone skin. The Blue Velvet Serum Facial Soap by BelaDoce Botanicals is as effective as it is beautiful. Made with ultra nourishing blue tansy, otherwise known as Moroccan chamomile, this hand-crafted bar is full of potent antioxidants and naturally soothing ingredients to calm irritated skin. Brazilian white clay, zinc and rosemary perfectly combine with blue tansy to balance your skin’s natural oils and purify your pores. It’s subtle, sweet herbal scent adds a final touch of aromatherapy to your skincare routine.

CHARCOAL DETOX MASK – BECALIA BOTANICALS

The magic of a good charcoal clay mask cannot be understated. You know that insanely satisfying feeling of taking off a mask that has drawn out all the dirt and sebum from your clogged pores? This is the mask for that. We especially recommend adding this to your skincare routine if you experience excessively oily, acne-prone skin. A blend of bentonite clay and kaolin clay mixed with turmeric powder, raw cacao, peppermint essential oil and activated charcoal jojoba oil will balance out excessive oil production, ease redness and minimize the appearance of pores.

03/PEPPA PEPTIDE SERUM – SISTINE

Peptides are the amino acids that make up collagen — the protein responsible for keeping your skin plump and firm — so adding a peptide-rich product to your skincare ritual can boost your skin’s strength and elasticity. The 03/PEPPA Peptide Serum by Sistine is formulated with rich peptides, hyaluronic acid, gotu kola extract and aloe vera leaf to give your skin exactly what it needs to feel extra supple and bouncy.

PINK SKINCICLE ICE GLOBES – THE GNARLY BEAUTY

Meet every serum’s super side-kick: The Skincicle Ice Globes by The Gnarly Beauty. Use these facial icing tools to massage your serum deep into your skin with gentle, upward strokes. Pop the Skincicles in the freezer for about 20 minutes before you expect to use them, then give yourself a quick 5-minute cryofacial after applying your serum. Not only does it boost the efficacy of your serums, it’ll oxygenate your skin by stimulating circulation and lymphatic drainage. We especially love incorporating these into our morning routines to reduce eye bags, de-puff inflammation and wake up sleepy, dull-looking skin.

RITUAL FACIAL MIST LOVE SUPREME – GUIDED FLAME CO.

When you hit that midday slump and your skin (and mood) needs a little pick-me-up, the Ritual Facial Mist Love Supreme by Guided Flame Co. is the perfect boost. Made with a restorative blend of lavender, clary sage, tangerine, vetiver, ylang ylang and blue tansy — this facial refresher is designed to enliven tired skin, while clearing out any stagnant energy your aura may have picked up. It’s intentional, soulful skincare at its fiiinest.

ANTI*BLUE x UV Skin Guard – SISTINE

Summer may be over, but y’all still need to be protecting your skin from those harmful UV rays year-round! The Anti*Blue x UV Skin Guard by Sistine acts as an all-around protectant from UVA rays, UVB rays and blue light (the light that’s emitted from all your phone and computers). A research-backed formula of bioactive micro-algae, aloe vera, jojoba oil, shea butter, green tea, vitamin E and minerals safeguards the skin with a photo-protective shield against free radicals and environmental damage. The best part? The light, airy texture immediately melts into your skin without feeling thick, tacky or greasy.

SAL HIMALAYAN BODY POLISH – BECALIA BOTANICALS

Love up on your entire body with the Sal Himalayan Body Polish by Becalia Botanicals. This lush exfoliant leaves your skin smelling like an absolute dream, while intensely exfoliating and moisturizing all at once. Made with Himalayan sea salts, sweet almond oil, coconut oil, vitamin E and shea butter — this indulgent and luxurious body polish is perfect for deeply restorative skin treatments in the shower. We recommend using one to two times a week to keep your skin feeling silky soft.

TAMARA BROWN SUGAR + COCONUT LIP SCRUB – BECALIA BOTANICALS

Finish it all off with a little something special for your lips. This all-natural lip scrub is made with a delicious blend of brown sugar, shea butter, macadamia nut oil, coconut sugar, coconut oil, cocoa butter, kokum butter, candelila wax and vitamin E for a nutrient-rich exfoliation. It tastes divine and leaves your lips feeling buttery smooth.
