  • - When you're pregnant, people are like,

  • "Don't use any of the things you use

  • "when you're not pregnant 'cause it's all poison."

  • And you're like "What?"

  • Only when you're hosting a parasite

  • can you treat yourself well?

  • It just seems a little messed up.

  • (upbeat music)

  • So this is a special sustainability

  • edition of Go To Bed With Me.

  • Which is very exciting for me,

  • because the company that I use on my skin

  • is True Botanicals which is the most

  • clean, sustainable, non-toxic company

  • that I have ever encountered and I've spent

  • a lot of time thinking about that stuff.

  • I also enjoy that the packaging is sustainable.

  • It's this dark shaded glass,

  • which keeps it preserved without putting

  • a bunch of harsh preservatives in the product itself.

  • It's something they learned from

  • the old perfumeries of France.

  • One thing I'll also say about True Botanicals

  • is they are MADE SAFE certified.

  • MADE SAFE is a third party certification organization.

  • They have really high standards,

  • very few companies pass their kind of check list

  • of sustainability requirements.

  • So I'm very excited to tell you about it,

  • because it's not only sustainable but it works.

  • So this is my basic night time routine.

  • It's not very extensive, it's not like a 75 step process.

  • It's really simple, and my skin is,

  • it's combination I feel like

  • everybody's skin is combination.

  • It goes through different things

  • based on stress and based on weather.

  • So first things first, I use the Nourishing Cleanser.

  • Now I use the Clear Line.

  • The Clear Line is based on fighting acne.

  • I used to have really bad breakouts,

  • like into my 20's when everyone else was done with breakouts

  • I was still getting them and I was going

  • to dermatologists and they were like,

  • "You have to use this harsh chemical,

  • "and this crazy peel, and this crazy mask."

  • And I was like surely that's not a good idea.

  • Now I will say, if you have a full face

  • of makeup on you would use the Pre Cleanse Oil first.

  • Which you just put on your skin,

  • massage it and then follow with the cleanser.

  • But right now I'm just gonna go right into my cleanser.

  • So one thing I should mention about True Botanicals

  • it smells so good.

  • It's like walking through a woodsy spa

  • in Northern California you're just like ah what?

  • You can get your face wet first,

  • I kind of just bang it on there.

  • And like who knows if that's the appropriate

  • thing to do but who cares?

  • This kinda to the ritualistic nature

  • of the nighttime routine, like you want something

  • that smells good you don't want something

  • that smells like burning tires

  • for the sake of beauty, like come on.

  • If it smells like crazy chemicals, it is crazy chemicals

  • and you shouldn't be putting it on your face.

  • Oh you know what I'm gonna do?

  • (water running)

  • I'm gonna put my hair up.

  • Maybe something I usually do first.

  • (water running and splashing)

  • Oh.

  • Super clean.

  • (sighs)

  • So, next step,

  • is the Antioxidant Booster.

  • So this stuff has something called resveratrol

  • which you find in apple peels.

  • It's what in the apple skin

  • that keeps apples nice and moist.

  • Often we just have to look to nature,

  • how is nature figuring it out?

  • And what you do, is you mix it with this Repair Serum.

  • You get to feel like a little chemist.

  • And I was never good at chemistry.

  • So this is my chance for redemption.

  • You put it on your hand, not very much

  • just like a little tiny bit.

  • Then you add a few pumps of the Serum

  • then you rub it together.

  • And it turns into this yummy Serum.

  • So you put it right on your skin, and then,

  • (sighs) again it just smells so good.

  • Okay so this is the Clear Pure Radiance Oil.

  • The Pure Radiance Oil is everything.

  • This is like the gateway drug.

  • You start on this, you're gonna be hooked

  • on this entire line.

  • It doesn't make you super slippery,

  • like it doesn't just kinda slide off

  • and you don't feel all gross.

  • It goes right in.

  • (rubbing on skin)

  • I put this stuff on during flights,

  • like on airplanes and people are always like--

  • (sniffing)

  • 'Cause they're like what is that magical scent?

  • Okay so you might be wondering,

  • but Olivia, why would you put oil on acne prone skin?

  • That's nuts, you're crazy.

  • A lot of creams, that seem super yummy

  • and kind of moisturizing are full of a filler.

  • Some of them have wax in them,

  • and they just sit on top of your skin.

  • So for a minute you're like,

  • (sighs) I'm so dewy and fresh.

  • But it's not going in, it's not penetrating.

  • The great thing about face oils is they penetrate in,

  • it really changed everything.

  • And sometimes I'll run out, and panic.

  • And I'll put on another moisturizer I have

  • in my medicine cabinet and I'm like ooh.

  • Its just not giving me what I want.

  • So, I know it seems crazy but this oil got rid of my acne.

  • Next thing I'm gonna do is put on,

  • this Overnight Mask.

  • This stuff seals in the moisture from the oil.

  • It's great, let me show ya.

  • Well what you do, is you put it on top,

  • and all the benefits you're getting

  • from that oil from the Serum get locked in.

  • And it's really noticeable,

  • like after about eight days of using this,

  • you feel very very different.

  • And this in the winter, absolutely saved me.

  • You know, these New York winters.

  • I'll mention too, the Antioxidant Booster

  • if you do get acne you make a super condensed

  • version of it, I'm gonna do this really quick

  • 'cause this is valuable.

  • You make a condensed version of the Antioxidant Serum.

  • So you do like a lot of the powder,

  • and the Serum and I have this big

  • whopper of a zit right here and I just put

  • a condensed version of the powder on there

  • and it's gonna go away.

  • My chin's always my acne spot.

  • I dunno what is that, hormones?

  • Bad luck, bad karma?

  • There ya go.

  • Here is the Nutrient Mist.

  • It's very moisturizing, it smells amazing,

  • and you can use this as a makeup setter as well.

  • So you can use this before you put your makeup on,

  • you use it to set your makeup and then all day long.

  • (spraying mist)

  • You spritz it on.

  • And I have never smelled anything

  • that smelled this good in my life.

  • It's so good.

  • This I also use on airplanes and people are like

  • what is happening?

  • But at night as the last thing you do.

  • (sighs)

  • Oh it's good.

  • That's good stuff.

  • I feel like there's a moment for everyone

  • when they decide they wanna change the game,

  • they wanna change the way they're living

  • their life to maybe live it in a way

  • that makes them feel a little bit

  • more consistent with the world they wanna create, right?

  • And this happens I think as you get older

  • you're like what am I doing to contribute

  • to the world I wanna see?

  • And for me, being pregnant was a huge eye opener for me.

  • Because when you're pregnant people are like,

  • "Oh be careful, don't use any of the things you use

  • "when you're not pregnant 'cause it's all poison."

  • And you're like "What?"

  • It's poison?

  • Why was it okay when I wasn't carrying a baby?

  • Like, only when you're hosting a parasite

  • can you treat yourself well?

  • It just seems a little messed up.

  • So I remember thinking surely if things

  • are totally unsafe when you're pregnant,

  • they're probably unsafe all the time

  • and you are worth it even without being a mom.

  • You're just worth taking care of, you really are.

  • So that's when I started really researching

  • non-toxic skin care and non-toxic

  • kind of everything that I came into contact with.

  • And yeah, it's overwhelming.

  • There's a lot.

  • And a lot of information that can get confusing.

  • But the great thing is now there are products

  • that work and are non-toxic.

  • You don't have to worry that you're sacrificing

  • something you're actually getting everything

  • you want and need out of your products

  • while also contributing to a more sustainable future,

  • for yourself, for the planet,

  • it's just a little bit of a way to participate

  • in the good, the goodness.

  • Really when you start thinking about

  • what you're putting on your skin,

  • you think about what you're coming into contact with

  • at all times including what you're putting in your mouth.

  • Toothpaste is a big part of that.

  • So I'm using Dr. Bronner's.

  • This is good stuff right.

  • All the Dr. Bronner's stuff is great.

  • I love the soap that you read when you're in the shower,

  • and it's like you can use it to wash dishes.

  • And you're like great,

  • I might bring my dishes in here, for efficiency.

  • And the Humble Brush.

  • Which is made of bamboo.

  • Bamboo is the miracle plant.

  • I learned how to brush my teeth from Seinfeld.

  • (brushing teeth)

  • Which maybe ages me, I dunno.

  • But there was an episode where Elaine

  • learned to brush her teeth properly

  • and they're like brush out, brush out,

  • brush out, circles, brush out.

  • And I was like what?

  • (water running)

  • (swooshing water around her mouth)

  • (spitting water out)

  • Boom.

  • You know, to make my kids brush their teeth

  • for more than two seconds I make them pick a song

  • and everyone has to brush their teeth

  • for the length of a song.

  • So I always try to think about it,

  • it's supposed to be a two minute process.

  • My advice for anyone who's trying to lessen

  • their impact on the world in terms of waste

  • or in terms of the chemicals they're pouring

  • into the water system or in any other way,

  • is baby steps.

  • If you can do a meatless Monday,

  • or maybe just meat Monday.

  • Maybe you only eat meat once a week.

  • You know we all know that's a huge

  • contributing factor to global warming.

  • I think in terms of packaging,

  • it's all about packaging.

  • Just pay attention to the amount of plastic you use,
