Skin Type: Normal to Dry (Sometimes Sensitive)
Morning Skin Care Routine: Every morning I wash my face with Hydrating Gel Cleanser. It’s hands down my favorite cleanser because it glides on silky smooth and I love the way my face feels once I wash it off. Once a week I also use the Refresh Facial Polish to exfoliate and lift away dead skin so my face is baby soft. After cleansing, I use the Purifying Tonic to tone and revive my skin. Recently, I started using the Advanced B5 Hydration and I am obsessed. I particularly enjoy this serum in the summer because my skin still feels like it can breathe. In the Fall and Winter months I cannot live without the Conditioning Hydration Cream. Lastly, I apply Ultra 15% Vitamin C and Oil Free SPF 40, making sure I not only apply to my face but my neck and décolleté. After these last steps my morning skin routine is complete and I’m ready for makeup!
Evening Skin Care Routine: My evening skin routine is the most important part of my day! I grew up always washing my face before I went to sleep. Luckily my mom always stressed the importance of removing your makeup and wash away the dirt from the day. I start by using the Conditioning Milk Cleanser to remove my makeup, and then cleanse with the Hydrating Gel Cleanser. 3 to 4 times a week I use the Brightening Polish to exfoliate and brighten my skin. This product really works and I notice a difference right away! I use the Purifying Tonic to level out the pH of my skin and then it is time for moisturizers! At night time I tend to go for a heavier moisturizer. I apply the Moisture Rich Cream, Vital Eye Cream then Mint Balm and I am ready for some shut eye!
Makeup (or Hair Care) Routine: I tend to not wear a ton of makeup during the workweek. I have a toddler at home so my morning routine has to be under 30 minutes (that includes showering, hair and makeup). Once I get out of the shower I towel dry my hair and mix up my cocktail of Infinite Shine Smoothing Oil and Style Defining Cream and smooth it over my damp hair. And that’s it- my hair-do is complete! As for makeup, I like to keep it simple. I apply Sheer Tint Base with my favorite brush of all time- the Dual Foundation Camouflage Brush. I then apply Lid Primer, which I never used before I worked at glo, and I am amazed with the difference it makes. Next, it’s time for some color, I use the Powdered Cheek Stain and Bronze in sunlight to give my skin just a bit of shine. I normally choose my eye shadow colors based on my outfit- which tends to be Eye Shadow Trio in coffee or amethyst most days. I also use the Majestic Jungle Collection to create looks perfect for a night out on the town! I love the Precise Micro Eyeliners because the thin point lets me define my eyes for daytime without all the drama associated with heavy eye liner. Water Resistant Mascara, Mint Balm and setting my makeup with the Revive Hydration Mist is last on my list. Then I am off for the day!
Can’t Live Without Products:
There are a few products that I cannot live without. Having somewhat sensitive skin, I always have a bottle of Remedy Gel around the house. I am obsessed with hydrocortisone, it fixes any minor rash or breakout I may have. My other obsession is the Smoothing Salt Scrub. I use this once a week and my skin is soft, smooth and glowing! Since having a baby my skin has changed a bit and I developed a slight case of Keratosis Pilaris on the back on my arms. I started using Therapeutic Body Exfoliant and I saw results within a week! My arms are smooth and the red bumps have faded significantly. Lastly, the most amazing product that I use throughout the day is Revive Hydration Mist. It gives my skin that instant burst of moisture and I instantly feel refreshed for those days where I could really use a afternoon nap!
