Glowing Skincare Routine 2017

 

Living in CT , especially in the colder months has me forever wondering why my ancestors didn’t set up camp some place with palm trees.

My skin gets so dull in the winter so I have devised a new routine that keeps my skin even toned and bright when I need it most.  I swear guys, I have tried an embarrassing amount of products to get my somewhat sensitive, uneven skin where I want it.  Here’s my recipe for glowing, bright skin.

I interchange brands a lot between drugstore and high end so included splurge vs steal options depending on your budget.   I’m a product freak but not a product snob,  sometimes good old Dove soap does the trick.  I actually only use that to remove my eye makeup!  Here’s my roundup of favorites and how often I use them.

Once A Week

Usually on a Sunday night, I deep clean then really hydrate my skin.  I do this by using a mask followed by a moisturizing night cream.

Masks

I alternate between a clay, mud, sheet and peel off mask.  I wear face makeup so I feel like once a week, a mask gives me a deep clean.  Clean pores are not very visible pores 🙂  Here are my current favorites:

Splurge: Mogi Mousse Clay Mask is vegan and organic (which I love).  It comes in powder form and you add your own water to bring it to life so to speak.  You can make the formula as thick or thin as you prefer.  This mask makes my pores almost invisible and my skin feel tight but not dry after I wash it off.  More deets here.
