Here's my daily skin routine and what I use to get my skin in great shape!
I went through a bad year or so with horrible skin....I changed a few things, and use different products, stop using some other ones...and voila!My skin is back to shiny, smooth goodness again.
so here's what I do everyday:
I use Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub, EVERYDAY! I wash my face with it in the shower, it is gentle enough to use everyday.
When I ran out, or when I've tried other scrubs, they contain too many "bad" oils, or lanolin, or mineral oil, all which make me break out.
TO REMOVE MAKE-UP, I'm going to do a video on the eye make-up remover I make, made from Olive Oil. It works wonders and is so good for your skin.
After I wash my face, I dry it and apply moisturizer.
I have a couple favorites:
One is a little too pricey, but it's so DIVINE...it's actually called, Immortelle Divine Cream from L'Occitane. (It is their BEST SELLER!) L'Occitane uses all natural ingredients, never tests on animals, and the essential oils in this cream, made my skin look AMAMZING! I received a free jar in my prize box from winning the ELLE Video Star contest, and I haven't been able to afford to buy a new jar yet, it's $95! But if you wanna see the most amazing skin you'll ever have, and if you're worried about aging ~ this is the CUPCAKES, baby!
What I have been using for months now is: Exuberance, it's the: She's So Lovely Rose Daily Moisturizer. Exuberance is made with mostly all organic ingredients, and definitely all natural! It comes in a beautiful pump dispenser which is very sanitary, love that! It is a great daily moisturizer that just makes your skin glow! IT travels with me everywhere, well except for when the bottle broke during one of my travels...I was so sad, but now I've got a new bottle and I'm good to "glow"!
NOW FOR MY "SECRET" (well, I guess not since I talk about it in a video, ha ha ha) MOISTURIZING TRICK:
After I've moisturized...AND ONLY AT NIGHT (you don't want to put this on, and then try to put make-up on...it'll me a melty mess! ha ha ha), I put it on at night after I've washed my face:
I glide on a layer of ALBA Un-Petroleum, over my moisturizer to seal in the moisturizer and provide the most deeply moisturizing power ever! It is all natural, contains no PARABENS, or mineral oil (which is the result of making petrol products like gasoline, yuck!) This is the ultimate skin-multi-tasking-moistutrizer! Put in on your nails or feet for perfect looking manicure / pedicures! I apply a little to dry, chapped lips, to soften them up really well. AND DEFINITELY SLAP A BIG HELPING AROUND THE EYE AREA, to keep those wrinkles away! I can't tell you how I love this stuff, and it's super cheap!
LAST BUT NOT LEAST....MY SUPER SKIN TRICK!
My LEMON FACE SCRUB...I was even in a hotel, and my skin was having a horrible reaction to some moisturizer I had to by at CVS, because I had forgotten my whole "beauty bag" at home, and I quickly got some lemon slices for the tea in the room, some sugar packets, whipped up a little scrub, rubbed it over my skin for a few seconds...and instantly my skin looked and felt better!
So here it is again! I love this!
Now you know how to get the glow! Hope my tips and tricks help you want to show off your your face even more!
huge love and glowing skin... Kandee
