The skincare industry is enormous and there are heaps of products for us all. While some of us have 50 products, the others may only have moisturizer. I didn’t start taking skin care seriously until about 6 months ago. I started to analyze my skin and realized that I wasn’t happy with the overall complexion. I’m not sure why I waited until 24 years old to start a proper skincare routine. I went in for a chemical peel to clear up my hyperpigmentation around my mouth. (FYI, this was the very first skin appointment in my life.) Along with the chemical peels, I was given a rigorous skincare routine with multiple steps that my esthetician recommended and within 2 months, my skin looked amazing! I was so happy with my skin that I decreased how much makeup I wore on my skin. Rather than covering up marks on my skin with makeup, I wanted to show off my skin, without makeup. I want to share with you guys, a routine that has worked for and may also work for you!
Here are a few rules to follow that worked for me:
1) Always wash your face after waking up and before sleeping. If you have makeup on, take it off as soon as you can. Let your skin breathe!
2) Face masks truly help. I always have 2-3 that I am using per week so that I can switch up the routine. Use a face mask at least 5-6 days per week.
3) Find a serum for your skin type. I use a mandelic serum for my hyperpigmentation and also the Good Genes serum. The Good Genes serum is serious business and you should only use it every other night or 3-4 times per week. Peel pads are amazing! If you haven’t tried them, you must.
4) Moisturize, every day. I moisturize every morning and sometimes at night as well. The Dr. Dennis Gross C+ Collagen Cream is my recent obsession.
Lastly, never forget sunscreen!
