Hello Lovelies!!! Since I am often questioned as to what products and what routine I use to keep my skin clear, smooth, and shiny I thought I would write my first blog based on that. I have combination skin, more on the oily side. Therefore, the products I will be mentioning are recommended more for anyone with the same skin type. The challenges I tend to face with my skin is blackheads due that I have open pores and I’m super oily and I have a mild case of Rosacea towards the center of my face. What are your challenges?! Working as a makeup artist throughout the years, I have noticed that many women face similar challenges. The one common factor that many of these women have is that they use the “WRONG SKINCARE”. Ladies, your skin is your business card! It is the first thing someone sees when they look at us. It should be your pride and joy. I hear many women complain and asking “what can I use to cover”, but why not ask “what can I use to improve/correct my skin”. Commmeee on ladies!!! Let’s all look the best we know we can!!! Sooooo, throughout the years I couldn’t find a perfect regimen/routine that would help prevent me from breaking out as often as I was, but within the last year I have found a routine that has managed to keep my skin clear,shiny and smooth. Here it goes ladies……..
***Every morning I wash my face with my mild glycolic wash (Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser). A Glycolic acid cleanser is used to exfoliate and wipe out wrinkles, small dents, black spots, open pores and white scars on the skin. After I have cleansed my face, I use my 2-in-1 moisturizer/primer (m61 Hydraboost Moisturizer). This moisturizer contains Vitamin B5, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid plump and replenish the skin’s moisture level and is also 100% paraben-free. To finish off, I use my hydrating eye cream (Kiehls avocado Eye Cream). I let this all sit on my skin for at least 20 minutes before I put any makeup on.
***Every 2 days I like to use my glycolic peel wipes rather than my wash and moisturizer on my skin (m61 Power Glow Peel). These pads are AMAZINGG!! This radiant glow peel provides deep exfoliation, resurfaces, clarifies, helps to firm the skin, helps reduce pore size, helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, helps to reduce the appearance of spider veins, combats dry/rosacea-like patches, and it assists in calming and soothing irritation.
***Every night I remove my makeup with my Caudelie Instant Foaming cleanser. After all makeup is removed, I then pair my Mia Clarisonic with my stronger glycolic wash (m61 Power Cleanse). This wash is a bit more harsh and drying than the morning one. This just allows me to remove any bacteria or product that has built up within my pores. Afterwards I moisturize my skin using my oil-free moisturizer (Mario Badescu Oil-Free Moisturizer). Finally, to end my night I use my favorite eye cream (Kiehls Midnight Recovery Eye Cream).
HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL AND THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT!!!!XOXO
