Skin care is the most important step in a daily and nightly routine however not having a good skin care regimen can cause breakouts and clogged pores.Over the years I have been in the spa industry and gained insight on skin care. I have combination skin and have hyperpigmentation spots on cheeks and a spot on my neck. I was so embarrassed when my co-worker was doing a facial for me and said “Jasmyn,stop plucking your cheeks and go to a medical spa for laser hair removal,YOU KNOW BETTER”.Lets just say when I saw a hair come up I would grab my tweezers and get to work to remove it and it is the biggest skin care mistake I made and I still battle hyperpigmentation and will be continuing treatments for laser hair removal.
The fun part of my skin care routine is grabbing a cup of coffee then I get to work on the steps.
I always start by setting aside 3-4 small towels then I cleanse my face with Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser,and once done I remove the cleanser by applying warm water to the first towel;Then pat dry with the second towel.Tip: You only want to use any Glycolic products for a max of 3 days a week,it can cause dry skin if used too much.
I then use the Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion which the Citrus in the product naturally breaks down pore congestion and dead skin cells for a healthy glow. Apply with the third dry towel or cotton pads.
Once the toner drys I use the whitening mask to help lighten my hyperpigmentation spots,It has blend of kojic acid and extracts of licorice root, mulberry, and grapeseed; I only use it once a week.The mask should stay on for about 10 minutes or so then use the fourth towel to remove the mask with warm water.
Once all steps all completed I use the dry towel to pat dry my skin then moisturize with Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer and apply a small amount of hyaluronic eye cream for a healthy glow.Sunscreen is important no matter the time of year so always add facial sunscreen if your moisturize of choose doesn’t have SPF in it.
The use of multiple towels comes from my career in the spa industry every spa has a certain protocol and using the same towel in all steps can create bacteria and even clogged pores.At night just be sure to remove all of your make-up before cleansing this will insure your not mixing makeup residue with the cleanser.
Ta Da your done!Only makeup I’m wearing is my lips using Ciate London in the color Bitter Sweet.
