So we’ve talked about skin masking and covered all you need to know about detoxing, but what about a fool proof night time skin routine. I know, I know, there are so many layers to this skin care business, no skin pun intended. Have good night time routine is crucial to optimal skin health. A long a grueling day of hitting the streets are skin is practically screaming love. Think about the toxins, dirt and dust in the air your skin comes in contact with on a daily basis. Your night time routine is where you reset the skin from a long days work and replenish during sleep time, so why not use products that make this process quick and easy and not to mention, clean.
Since cold weather in NC is here to stay and I have dry skin, Earth-Kissed Beauty has been the ultimate life saver. I keep my night time routine pretty simple for the most and I’m sharing my step by step process to a easy peezy night time routine that’s quick and painless, LOL because I don’t have time for all that other stuff.
Step 1 is to ALWAYS cleanse. You want to get all that dirt and grim from the day off your body and face and any good skin care routine includes a thorough cleansing process. I typically cleanse my face and body in the shower. Adjusting the temperature to a luke warm water for face, as hot water tends to dry the face out and irritate the skin. My current cleanser of choice is the Trader Joes Spa Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil. For body I use Dove for Sensitive Skin.
Toner is the next step in this quick and easy process. I use a cotton pad to apply my toner to my face. Currently using Thayers Witch hazel Facial Toner UnscentedUsing a toner is the best way to capture any left over dirt your cleanser didn’t get and is also great for balancing the ph levels of your skin. After cleansing, ph levels are typically not balanced.
Nearing the end of this process with restoring the moisture back into your skin. That’s where Earth-Kissed Beauty products come into play. I’m currently using and LOVING the Renewal Night Cream and Lavender Vanilla Body Butter. These have been staples in my routine since the summer and I’ll continue to keep them around because my skin is loving it.
You see, skin care doesn’t have to be stressful and reducing the amount of products I use at night has given me sweet dreams. The way my life is, less is best. My advice, keep your routine clean and simple and it’s pretty much fool proof.
Hope this info was helpful. Till next time, friends.
So, I’m sure we’ve all dealt with it, yes, you know what I’m talking about, those fall skin transitions. Those transitions where your skin is not behaving the way you want it to because of the weather changes. It happens to me every year. The minute the weather starts to make it’s transition to colder days, my skin becomes really dry and parched and I notice the texture is not as clear. I also get a few blemishes if I’m not taking steps to moisturize throughout the day. I have combination skin, but in the winter, it seems more dry than anything and with all the holiday parties and holiday events, I wear more make-up than usual which can clog the pores and collect dirt build up. This year, I’m taking extra measures with my skin and incorporating a weekly mask routine to keep my skin happy and healthy as it goes from warm to cold days here in NC.
I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about masking in past blogpost. It’s definitely a new addition to my skin routine because why not. Aside from my weekly Apple Cider Vinegar and Bentonite Clay mask, I’ve incorporated the new YESto White Charcoal line to my skin care routine as well. I’m lazy, so the Yesto Detoxifying and Hydrating White Charcoal Mud Mask is amazing. I can target certain areas with this easy to use stick and bam, clean, healthy hydrated skin in no time. My favorite thing about the tomato line is that it’s specifically for dry sensitive skin and since I fit the bill, I’m winning. Masking is a permanent thing in my skincare routine this season by who wants dry, blemished skin? Not I. Other than masking, I’m making sure to do the following to keep my skin at top level this fall:
- Moisturize 2 times a day or more
- Drink at least 64oz of water a day
- Consume at least 4 servings of vegetables a day
- Oil cleanse and tone
- Incorporate clean beauty/cosmetics products into my daily routine
- Exercise regularly
- Sleep at least 8 hours a day
I think with these actions steps, my skin will fair the fall and winter weather transitions. Here’s to happy and healthy skin this season and seasons to come.
Stay tuned for my updated skincare products coming to the blog soon.
Hi everyone. Guess what, we have officially entered #glowupseason. Literally though, LOL. I’ve been MIA for a while, but that’s because things have been crazy this summer and I was in need of some serious self care, so I’ve kicked off my self care routine with a new beauty line, Just Glow NYC. They sell a variety of mask to help you get your glow on. I’m currently digging the After Glow Mud Mask with Dead Sea minerals. This mask got my face super clean without stripping it of moisture. As many of you have read in past post, I have dry skin, so I’m constantly battling with keeping my skin moisturized. After using this particular mud mask, my face is super soft to the touch, supple and of course dewy and glowing. I applied the mask with my fingers, making sure to lay it on thick and then I let the mask sit for about 15 minutes, rinsed it off and applied my daily moisturizer afterwards. Talk about amazing results!
One of my favorite things about this brand of mask is that it’s affordable. There are so many mask out there that are a bit on the expensive end and I’m on a budget, but don’t want to sacrifice great skin days, so having found an affordable mask makes all the difference and to top it off, all the Just Glow NYC products are vegan and cruelty free. They are also free of Pthalates, Phosphates, Sulfates, Mineral Oil, and Parabens. In other words, its nothing but the good stuff and none of the bad.
