Turning Skin Routines Into Rituals Part 1
Learn how Alicia and Dr. Renee Snyder prep and cleanse with our Sage + Oat Milk Candle, Golden Cleanser, Be Luminous Exfoliator, and Harmony Mask.
[Alicia Keys] I'm so crazy excited to be taking you through the offerings of Keys Soulcare. I'm like, "What? Is this real?" I love this Keys Soulcare community that we're building. It is so genuine and so beautiful, and so many people are just up to so many great things. You are up to so many great things. So one of the things we talk about a lot is how do we take care of ourselves? How do we nourish ourselves and our mind, body, soul, and spirit? More than ever, we need these rituals, these ways to tune into ourselves. And that's why Keys Soulcare is so super exciting, and I'm honored to be able to share it with you.
I will take this sage scented calming candle at the beginning of my ritual. I'll light it, and I will literally close my eyes and say a little prayer. I'll think of something that I really want to bring to fruition today. I really wanted to put mantras on these offerings, because, to me, mantras are so big and it's so... Such a simple way to do something powerful. So this is called the Golden Face Cleanser. This is going to be your first step. You're going to wake up in the morning, light your candle, drink some water, and put this cleanser on your face. So let's do it. Let's get to washing.
Can you tell us what's in here, Dr. Renee, so they can hear?
[Dr. Renee Snyder] Absolutely. So this Golden Cleanser has one of Alicia's favorite ingredients, and that's Manuka honey, which is where it derives this beautiful golden hue from. The cleanser also contains turmeric, which is known as one of our hardest working spices in the world. It's been used as an Ayurvedic essential for over 4,000 years and is known to be detoxifying for the skin.
[Alicia Keys] It's a beautiful cleanser that's going to make your skin feel not too dry, but definitely clean and smells good. This one is the skin exfoliator. I love this. I love it so much. It's super cool, and you just pour it in your hand and you see how that just pours out? Mmm. It's all fun. And then when you add the water, it gets more smooth, kind of looks like that almost. And you just feel the little bit of beads in there, just getting rid of any of that stuff that needs to go.
[Dr. Renee Snyder] When we set out to create this together, Japanese hojicha powder was basically selected due to the tannins it shares with green tea, and that offers hydration, moisture retention. It's also an antioxidant and an astringent. The lactic acid that's contained within this exfoliator is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates that top layer of the skin to reduce age spots and uneven pigmentation in order to help with a dull or an uneven complexion.
[Alicia Keys] The Harmony Charcoal Face Mask is really awesome. One of my favorite things about it is how it looks and feels and smells. It's like it almost feels like you just dug it out of some deep cave. Oh, look at that. You feel like you're in the cave with me? This also has Manuka honey. It helps smooth and brighten. It has gold foil in it that creates the harmony and the radiance.
[Dr. Renee Snyder] And there's charcoal within this Harmony Mask that helps to draw out the debris and the impurities of the skin.
