Happy Holidays Beauties!
Hope everyone has been enjoying the last year of this DECADE! Crazy!
Now that a new decade and new year is upon us, its time for new habits. The right skincare routine is so important as a preventative measure. Yes, are there tools and procedures that can pull and tuck and tug years off your face, but who wants to deal with that? When really, it could all have been avoided with proper routines and products! I’m going to give you a rundown of my routine and how easy this can be.
You will want to have a daily routine, a monthly routine and a yearly routine. They don’t have to be extensive- just enough to keep your skin balanced.
A daily skin care routine doesn’t need to include a closet full of products, just some staple favorites. I’m a huge fan of multi-purpose products. My morning and night skin care routines take about 5 minutes!
Face Cleanser- (morning and night) I’m currently using our Lavender Creamy Cleanser by a|k studios in the morning and night. Its gentle and smooth and I love how clean it feels when I wash my face.
Facial Serum- (morning and night) Advanced Wri-Lax Serum by a|k studios is my JAM to prevent and smooth out wrinkles! It smooths expression lines and is super lightweight.
Facial Moisturizer- (morning and night – yes, I use the same moisturizer on my face at night!) Collagen Hydrator from PCA Skin – this is the creamiest moisturizer I’ve ever used. It doesn’t clog pores or make me greasy.
One other product that should be in EVERYONE’S kit is a retinol. It combats fine lines, wrinkles and stimulates the production of collagen. A Must Have! I use this during my nighttime skincare routine around 3 times per week. I use the Intensive brightening retinol by PCA Skin.
SPF- EVERY DAY, SUN OR NO SUN, sunscreen should be applied to your face! My ride or die is the Daily Replenishing SPF by a|k studios. It’s a combo SPF and primer. It also has the loveliest cucumber scent.
When its time for my monthly skincare routine, I’m still doing all the above. I’m just adding in two masks. I like an enzyme mask and charcoal mask. I use the Pumpkin Clarifying Mask from a|k studios and the Detox Charcoal mask from PCA Skin. I do these in combination with each other once a month. In the summer months I’ll do my masks twice a month depending on my skin.
My yearly routine is special – I make sure to have appts scheduled with my esti-bestie for a chemical peel. I see my esthetician for a peel once a year since my skin is sensitive to them, but the results are beautiful. I’m very much looking forward to my 2020 peel!
Alright my beauties – if you’ve gotten this far, I hope you’ve enjoyed these quick tips on what a daily, monthly and yearly routine should look like!
We are always at the studio ready to help you get set up! Stop in and see us!
With lots of love and glow,
See you in 2020!
