LET'S CARE ABOUT OUR SKIN CARE
Mornings can be tough, but let’s give a sh*t about our morning skin care routine!
Don’t you want a basic skin care routine that will save your skin from aging and blemishes? When it comes to skincare, keep it simple and small. You don’t need 15 products to create a flawless glowing skin. Here are my favourite products that are effective, long lasting and result driven.
FIRST: A morning routine should consist of either a cleanser or exfoliating toner. If you have oily skin and sweat at night, I highly recommend using a gentle cleanser. Your cleanser shouldn’t leave you feeling tight and dehydrated. IS Clinical Cleansing Complex is hands down the best cleanser I have ever used. You only need a dime sized amount. Those of you with dry skin should invest in an exfoliating toner such as Ole Henrickson Oil Control Balancing Force. Apply it using a cotton round. It will help remove any debris and ensure makeup application is smooth.
SECOND: Apply a vitamin C serum as it strengthens the skin and fights free radicals (sun, environmental, pollution). Lock everything in with your favourite moisturizer, find something for YOUR skin type. IS Clinical has 2 of my favourite, Moisturizing Complex and Reparative Emulsion. And, yes, eat your fruits and veggies too - that helps optimize skin health.
THIRD: The final step often gets neglected, but it is the SINGLE MOST important one. Applying a sunscreen! SPF is my number 1 recommendation for all ages, especially those of you in your 20’s! Treat it as a serum - find something that works for you and that you like. And no, SPF 15 in your foundation does not count! If you want SPF in makeup, I suggest a tinted moisturizer with an SPF between 30-50. IT Cosmetics CC cream and Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue are some great choices.
My favourite time of the day has to be my night time skin care routine. It’s a great time to unwind and relax. Details coming up in the next post, so stay tuned.
You can purchase IS Clinical products from the Myuz website or in person at Blush and Blonde.
