I always try not ordering the same thing each month to really enjoy the variety they have to offer so here are my June favorites:
Before I tell you about the new additional to my skin routine (and yes I am LOVING having a routine these days) I’d like to hit you with some pretty narly facts about your skin and pollution. Did you know that 88% of us breathe air that is below the world health organizations safety standards? Or that some cities have more than 161 days of unhealthy breathing air per year? Or that after 8 hours in unhealthy air, your skin will have 1 gram of pollution adhesion’s?
Hi there babes!
All right so before we get into this blog post I have a confession to make, I am indeed or used to be the girl who washed her face with soap. I left make up on over night and pretty much had NO form of facial routine. This wasn’t because I didn’t want to; I think I just didn’t know where to start or what was best for my skin.
So basically I went to Dermalogica for a free skin mapping consultation, where the skin care professional got close up and personal to my pores to see what was going on. After a quick free check in, a skin care routine was created that would best suit my skin and lifestyle.
On that note, here are the products that make up my new daily skin routine!
STEP ONE – THE PRECLEANSE
Now this is my personal favorite! When I was a soap face washer I would probably need to wash my face around 4/5 times to get it mildly make up free and still have a messy towel afterwards. The Precleanse is an oil-based product you apply on your face before you wet or clean it. The oil sticks to all the dirt & make up before you even get to the actual skin that needs to be washed.
STEP TWO – SPECIAL CLEANSING GEL
A refreshing gel that smells amazing! Leaving the skin feeling soothed, light and a maximum of one wash after the Precleanse.
STEP THREE – DAILY RESURFACER
Okay so basically a miracle worker. The Daily Resurfacer is the exfoliation process best suited for those with sensitive skin or allergies (which I have been blessed with both… ha ha) So instead of using a grain or bead like exfoliator, I have been allocated these little finger hats of goodness. Essentially each finger hat contains little Pac Men helpers that eat away at the dead skins cell on your face, leaving you with an exfoliation that leaves your skin soothed and not full of red blotches or dryness.
STEP FOUR – ULTRA CALMING MIST
Now this step I use mainly in the AM as I find the Skin Smoothing Cream suits me better at night. This baby you just sprites on your face to leave it feeling fresh AF! The mist instantly soothes sensitivity that may have been caused by the Daily Resurfacer (which it shouldn’t) but in the bazaar incident that it does, this baby has your back. Not only is it a perfect STEP FOUR, its also a perfect STEP ALWAYS! I carry this around with me and give my face some extra hydration after instructing a class or even after a work out if I’m on the go. Remember your sin is your biggest organ so we need to keep it hydrated!
STEP FIVE – SKIN SMOOTHING CREAM
Pretty much all you need to know is in the name if I’m being honest. If my skin is feeling super dry I will use it both in the AM & PM, however starting off with so many products It has suited me best just at night.
STEP SIX – SKIN HYDRATING MASQUE
This is some powerful shizniz y’alls! If you have every looked for the hydrating supreme mask look no further! Like the hero of the night, while you sleep this champion is fighting off those fine lines making sure you are looking fresh AF the next morning.
STEP SEVEN – MULTIVITAMIN POWER FIRM
Now this is a real big girl step in my life, and I did have some questions to whether I really needed an eye cream at the tender age of 26. However as my mama always told me, prevention is better than fixing! So here I am, placing magic on my eyes one night at a time.
Feeling a lot like Jenny from the block, I will always know where I came from using soup, but dam it feels good to be looking after my skin like a rock star!
All my love,
