There’s washing your face and slapping on some moisturizer, ablutions style. And then there’s a beauty ritual, where your intentions—from the skin-care products you use to the purpose of taking an actual minute for yourself (for inner beauty!)—are a tad more pure, explains Jeannie Jarnot, founder of beauty delivery service Beauty Heroes.

Each month, Jarnot adds one must-try natural beauty pick (AKA a “hero” product) to the medicine cabinets of women across the country, who then build a personal ritual out of them.

Jarnot has her own seasonal skin-care ritual down to three products. And for her there’s a chicness in this simplicity—as well as total bliss taking 30 minutes on a weekend morning for some facial TLC. (Though there are no skin-care consequences for doing yours in 3 minutes to dash to brunch.)

The clean-beauty savant shared her super streamlined, totally do-able ritual with us for super clear, bright, and glowy skin.

What type of skin would you recommend this particular ritual for?

Honey, in particular, is one of those wonder ingredients that I think works well on every skin type. It’s a humectant (draws and locks in moisture), anti-bacterial, a natural exfoliator and rich in nutrients. Anyone who has rosacea may just want to shorten the time they spend beauty steaming to 3-4 minutes.

What results should we expect from this ritual?

Every step in this ritual will lead you towards clearer skin. Step 1 naturally detoxifies, step 2 exfoliates and step 3 treats skin to the powerfully clarifying mangosteen fruit oil. The honey and berries in the mask are powerful skin-brighteners, so you’ll also see a more even skin tone. Plus, your skin will feel soft as a petal.

What’s the purpose of a skin-care ritual, especially for busy people?

To me a beauty ritual means taking time to enjoy skin care, as an act of self-care. Some of my beauty rituals are just a few minutes long and others, like this one take about a half hour. The ritual can be for the sole purpose of seeing a result in your skin or experiencing products that smell and feel great, or both. I recommend enjoying the process and the result, why not? Anyone skeptical of spending 10-15 minutes for a beauty ritual might want to just try it. Don’t blame me if you get hooked.
