Developing a skin regimen is key if you plan on having youthful, healthy-looking skin. A good skin regimen addresses the specific needs and behavior of your skin type and since there’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to taking care of your skin, finding products that work well with your skin type is important.
We caught up with Kimberly-Chloe Wilson, skin expert and founder of The Butter Bar and got some really great tips for finding the best skin regimen.
How to Find the Best Skin Regimen with The Butter Bar
If you have sensitive skin, most commercial skin care lines and even designer brands may not be right for you. Has your skin ever broken out or became inflamed from using one of these products? Mine has and it’s a terrible feeling. It’s because many store brands include harsh chemicals that can actually irritate your skin and cause damage over time. Skin that breaks out easily from using topical treatments do much better with natural products.
The Butter Bar’s Melan-in Serum is a perfect all-natural product to include in your daily skin regimen, especially if you have sensitive or acne-prone skin.
The Melan-in Serum is made with organic and 100% natural ingredients including carrot and spinach seed oil. With vitamins like A, B1, B2, B3, B6, folic acid, and chlorophyll, it works to add moisture, regenerate your skin cells, and it fights signs of aging as well as acne.
Because it has natural SPF 30-40, it can be used as a sunscreen as well. Some people with darker skin tones don’t think they need to protect their skin with sunscreen or serums, but if you truly want to take care of your skin and protect it from UV rays that can cause certain types of skin cancer, using sunscreen should be apart of your daily skin regimen.

If you have acne-prone skin and if traditional acne-fighting treatments leave your skin feeling dry and damaged, try The Butter Bar’s Flawless Facial System-Advanced: For Acne & Hyperpigmentation.
Unlike commercially manufactured products, this acne-fighting system uses organic ingredients to cleanse and heal your skin. The full set includes a Black Honey Face Wash, a Flawless Facial Apple, Honey, and Green Tea Face Toner, an Aloe-Papaya Moringa Oil Facial Moisturizer (With Chia Seed Oil), Apples & Mustard Blemish Banishing Facial Mask, and the Brown Sugar & Honey Acne-Fighting Scrub. (The Flawless Facial System has officially made me hungry!)
If you are a vegan, use Butter Bar products that do not have honey in them. For more tips on taking care of acne-prone skin, read this article.
For eczema or dry skin, use natural products that will hydrate and restore your damaged skin.
I remember when my youngest sister had the worse case of eczema as a baby. It was so bad she actually use to tear the skin off of her foot because it was so itchy! (She still has the scar to prove it!). One thing that my mom use to do to soothe my sister’s skin was give her oatmeal baths and drench her skin in heavy creams for added moisture. The Butter Bar’s Oatmilk Bath: For Eczema & Itchy Skin is designed for those with sensitive skin and who need a moisture-infused, revitalizing skincare treatment.
An oatmeal bath can do wonders if you have eczema or dry or itchy skin.
Keep in mind that healthy skin starts with healthy habits all around, including your eating habits. Go on a detox diet to help clear up your skin and try our Aloe Vera & Kale Skin Detoxing Smoothie as well as our 6 Fruit-Infused Detox Water Recipes.
Now, if you have allergies, may the force be with you! I know how chaotic it can be during allergy season. Did you know that sodium laureth sulfate and sodium laurel sulfate (common ingredients found in commercially manufactured skincare and haircare products) can trigger allergic reactions after they are applied to your skin? Crazy right?
