Meet the Maker: Brittany Maritsa Ruley of Bee's Moon - Part II: The Maker

How do you start your day?

I start my day by waking up slow, loving on my dogs, and having a big cup of coffee.

Do you have a morning / evening ritual?

My morning rituals include watering my plants, quiet time to visualize harmony, and dancing to City Girls in my kitchen before outlining my day.

What is your daily skincare routine?

In the mornings I never wash my face with a product, I don’t want to wash away all the magical oils my skin needs and spent the evening making, I only rinse with water, spritz with a rose water and apply moisturizer and SPF. I happen to use our Night Healer as a day moisturizer as well.. I’m a rebel.

In the evenings I start with our Cosmic Cleansing Oil on dry skin, taking about 60 seconds to work that oil in really well before swiping it off with a warm bamboo cloth. I repeat this process one more time to lay down nutrients onto clean skin, again with the Cosmic Cleansing Oil (double cleanse, queens!). Then, I rinse my face with water and spritz a rose water or witch hazel mist before applying my Night Healer moisturizer on damp skin to lock in the moisture. At times I add in various products here and there, like hyaluronic acid, retinol, AHA or BHA acid, eye cream, or a face oil. However, on a daily basis I keep it very simple and only use a few products.

Do you have a daily wellniss routine?

My daily wellness routine includes salt lamps / nice ambiance, stretching, skincare, loved ones, my dogs, acting on my creativity, giving my body what it asks for, and not shutting out uncomfortable emotions or situations that need tender attention and healing time.

What is beauty product or tool you can’t live without?

I cannot live without my Night Healer moisturizer. It feels so good year round and the glow and protection it gives me just doesn’t happen with other moisturizers... and an eyelash curler!

What do you do for R&R when you need to reboot?

When I need to reboot you can find me in my bed, with my dogs, snacks, salt lamps on, and a full day of movies.

What are your must-haves when traveling?

When traveling I must have motion sickness medicine, snacks, headphones + podcasts, and of course I pre-plane-prep my skin with Cosmic Cleansing Oil and a thick layer of Night Healer for protection against the dry plane air.

What selfcare advice would you have given yourself 5 years ago?

Self Care advice to 5 year ago me: “Pain is not shameful, and healing does not happen overnight; continue to do the hard work on yourself because the journey is long and beautiful.”

Do you have any beauty / wellniss advice for our followers?

Stay hydrated, try new things, find what works best for you. Nothing beats a professional facial. Your skin is communicating with you, listen to what it is saying and try not to be mad at it. Be kind to yourself and others. Listen with empathy. Think of our Earth as you honor yourself.
