#MyCleanBeautyShelf: Peek Inside Kosmatology Founder Janis Covey’s Cabinet
Janis Covey, PharmD, is the founder of Kosmatology, a MADE SAFE certified, affordable, organic skincare line designed for the entire family. Janis’ journey into clean skincare began when her youngest daughter, Cameron, developed eczema at three months old. Trips to the pediatrician only resulted in prescriptions for topical corticosteroids.
As a compounding pharmacist, Janis was aware of the side effects of potent corticosteroid creams and she wanted a more natural remedy, she used her knowledge to create what is now known as the Goody-Goody Grapefruit Lotion Bar. Cameron has been eczema-free for nine years using only this product. After her results with her daughter, Janis went on to create a clean skincare line, Kosmatology, for the entire family. Let’s peek inside her beauty cabinet for the latest #MyCleanBeautyShelf.
My beauty philosophy is…
Take care of your body inside and out and your skin will show it. I believe keeping your body hydrated, eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables and getting enough sleep will keep your body healthy inside and out, and keep your skin glowing.
First thing in the morning, I…
When I wake up, I have a mug of warm water with lemon then the rush starts to get the girls off to school. After they are on the bus, I usually have a cup of coffee and breakfast, which almost always includes fresh fruit.
My morning skincare routine
Is very simple. As a mom of two girls, my life is pretty hectic. I obviously want to take care of myself and show my daughters how important self-care is, but unfortunately the school bus doesn’t wait. My morning skincare routine includes washing my face (I use Kosmatology’s Rose Geranium face wash) and moisturize with the matching Rose Geranium face oil. I also use Erin’s Faces Firming eye gel, Blissoma’s Intense Hydration Tonique, and of course, SPF. I currently love Babo Botanicals Daily Sheer Tinted Sunscreen.
My morning haircare routine
Sad to say: a messy bun.
My morning makeup routine
Once again very simple. I use INIKA foundation and pressed powder. I apply Kosmatology lip balm and that’s it. I will occasionally wear eye liner (Erin’s Faces) and mascara (Lily Lolo) but only if we’re going out to dinner or a special occasion.
My favorite beauty tip
Do what you feel works for you and your skin. Skincare is not one size fits all.
