A Daily Act of Self Care for Anti-Aging


When it comes to creating good habits, I have read my fair share of books on how to make them stick. So why is it still so difficult? Especially when the desired results of the good habit are beneficial for both my mind and body. One tip that keeps being repeated everywhere is simplicity. The simpler it is, the easier it is for the habit to become, well, habitual. With that in mind, Maapilim released a skincare kit, Good Face Day, to help everyone create the “self-care” habit of taking care of their skin.

What is Good Face Day?

The Good Face Day Kit is a bundle of essential anti-aging skincare products to be used both in the morning and in the evening. But there’s a lot more to it than just that. Each product in the kit is formulated for a specific function, and when using the products together, your skin gets the full care it needs, all in under 2 minutes. Let’s go over each product and step of this handpicked am/pm skincare routine.

Step 1: Clean the Dirt Away with Face Cleanser

Maapilim’s mild cleanser removes dead skin, dirt, and toxins from your face without drying out or stripping the skin by using witch hazel and aloe vera. By using these natural ingredients, your skin benefits from their healing properties, working to heal blemishes and improve texture.

Step 2: Moisturize and Firm Skin with Anti-Aging Face Moisturizer

The face moisturizer leaves your face feeling hydrated with no greasy residue. Maapilim uses plant-based hyaluronic acid (a moisturizing agent that holds about 1,000 times its weight in water) and pomegranate bark extract, which is loaded with vitamin C. This combination is essential for collagen support, keeping the skin firm and elastic.

Step 3: Depuff and Brighten Eyes with Eye Cream

This final simple step is crucial for an anti-aging skincare routine. When your eyes look tired and puffy, it can make your whole face look that way. Maapilim’s eye cream uses a nutrient-filled formula using quinoa extract, vitamin C, and colloidal oats to soothe skin, lighten dark circles, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Take Time to Slow Down

A key part of anti-aging is more than what you put on your skin. Taking time to slow down and reduce stress is also a key component in the Good Face Day Kit. Every box has a specific theme, which is expressed through an essential oil blend and a current copy of SAND magazine. The box’s subscription delivery is also intentional to help reduce stress and help make your skincare ritual hassle-free (no more running to the store when a product runs out). Also, by getting the Good Face Day Kit, you save 30%, as opposed to buying the products separately (not including the box’s additional exclusive products). If you want to try out the routine first, you can also get a trial box for $10 here.
