5 Step Skincare Routine

#NOFILTER. We all want that in our lives amirite? That is the goal. Skincare talk has been  a major buzz throughout my millennial crowd these days. Poreless, glossy, glowy, no makeup makeup ready skin - What’s not to love? I have got to say that thanks to my mom I’ve been applying some sort of something to my face since high school. Throughout the years I have added to the routine and skincare for me has majorly evolved from the dove soap bar + evening moisturizer. Instead of knowing I can cover blemishes I have been more interested in overall preventing and  healing my skin. The last year I have amped up the regimen because #ForeverYoung eeek and #OperationWeddingReady. I feel like when I work to really take care of my skin, getting ready in the am is so much quicker and I just feel good.

A few people have asked what I do for my skincare routine and I wanted to include the 5 steps I follow morning and night. It seems like a lot but honestly it has become habit and layering each product/oil on is pretty relaxing and nice. 
  1. Cleanse - The last year I have used the Peter Thomas Roth anti-aging cleanser and I love the instant clean feeling it gives. I’ve seen a tighter  brighter appearance and more I AM AWAKE look and feel.
  2. Exfoliate - To exfoliate daily I use my Foreo facial tool when washing my face. This creates the best canvas and I feel like it REALLY gets deep into any little bits of makeup left behind. I also like to use a Dr. Dennis Gross peel pad or weekly Drunk Elephant TLC Sukari Babyfacial to resurface.
  3. Toner + Essence - For my toner I use either Fresh Rose Hydration Toner or Thayers Rose water mist...I guess I like Rose. It  is such a nice clean feel to tighten up pores. I’ll even keep it in a sprayer in my bag or desk to refresh if I feel ehhh. Lol my team laughs when I spritz it out at work. We mean business when the Rose water comes out! Right after I apply an Essence (this is new I added this year). Lancome Hydra Zen feels cooling and preps your skin to absorb serums. Thank you K-Beauty for that little add.
  4. Serums - In the AM I use Drunk Elephant Vitamin C-Firma Day serum - It also has amazing brightening evening results. In the evening I will use a Peter Thomas Roth Retinol + Grapeseed oil combo. These are both great for Anti-aging, renewing, and acne prevention.
  5. Moisturize - My skin tends to be on the dry side. I have been using a lot of products with Hyaluronic acid and a water gel feel to hydrate my skin in the morning and evenings.  Peter Thomas Roth and Tatcha Water Cream are a few recent favorites of mine. For my Eyes Biossance has a nice tightening cream too that I use.

WAIT THERE’S MORE!  Lips + Lashes - These are totally extras - but I like to use Laneige Lip mask before bed (you will never have chapped lips again it’s amazing). Also the Grande Lash serum has really improved my lash growth..Someone asked if I had little falsies a few weeks ago -just a pop of mascara and you really start to notice a difference. If you want to De-puff try NuFace or a Jade Roller. You'll feel much more awake, contoured, and lifted :)

**Tip  - you do not have to wait for everything to dry. Just layer up lightest to heaviest product.
Oh one last thing - I will say though from what I’ve noticed good skin REALLY always comes from within.
  • Foodie choices - I see the biggest difference when I eat clean (bye sugar bugs, watch the alcohol, LOTs of veggies/protein)
  • Hydrate - Drink ALL the water
  • Take my vitamins +Vital Protein Collagen - I cannot tell you guys HOW much I feel like this has helped my hair, skin, nails health. My hair and nails have grown much faster and I like adding a little protein pack to my coffee in the morning with a scoop.
I hope this was helpful! Let me know if you try anything from this post. I LOVE talking about all this skincare wellness topics...happy to be introducing it to the blog.

  1. Martingale is a negative-progression betting system the place the gambler will increase their wager once they lose and/or lower their wager once they win. This commonality of log-normal distribution no longer holds when this arbitrariness of wager value is violated, e.g., within the situation the 토토사이트 place the player can solely wager objects (in-game skins). One of our targets is to uncover the commonalities behind the behavior of online gamblers. To implement this, we analyze the data from totally different online playing techniques. The first one is pores and skin playing, the place the bettors are mostly online game gamers and the place beauty skins from online video video games are used as digital currency for wagering8,14. The different system is crypto-currency playing, the place the bettors are mostly crypto-currency users.
