Daytime // My Skincare Routine
The one thing people tell me all the time, is that I smell like roses and unicorns.
Just kidding, the thing people tell me all the time is how beautiful my skin is. Although, when I wake up in the morning I don't always agree, and a occasional break out gets me down. I do think I have found a plan that works great for my skin. I grew up with really nasty hormonal acne, and finally after all these years have found what works best for me.
The most important thing is to avoid the sun. I cannot say it enough. The sun makes you speckle and age faster than anything else for sure. Second thing is do not discount the importance of a great dermatologist. I love IPL photo facials. I love microdermabrasion. I'm totally a product whore.
Here are the products that are super life changing that I think everyone should use. Click the images to purchase:
The Josie Maran Argan Oil is what I put on before I sleep, get on an airplane, before my makeup- pretty much all the time. It doesn't stay oily and is super lightweight and because it's so natural it really calms my skin and leaves it plump.
I can't say enough about the Kate Somerville Exfolikate product. I think the secret to beautiful skin is to get ride of all the crap sitting on the surface. I use this once of twice a week or whenever I feel "dull."
My friend Sarah got me hooked on Caudalie products, and she paints some of the prettiest faces in the world. I love this mist. The scent is beautiful, and it's a great spray to spray on your makeup at lunch or mid-day and it sort of re-energizes it. When your foundation starts to get dry and old looking, I spray a little of this and it looks new again.
The Mario Badescu products are all to die for. I love this all natural brand and I swear DEEPLY by the drying lotion. Yes, it is bright pink so you have to have a super loving husband, or only secretly wear it at night. But, a little on the end of a cotton swab applied to a zit, whitehead or place you picked at your face when you shouldn't have- and it fixes it right up. Trust me.
I also love the Mario Badescu Healing and Soothing mask. When I'm having a week of breakouts, or my skin is "freaking out" this really just calms it all down and dries up all the drama.
