Ultimate GLAM: Skincare Routine

Everyone loves a good makeup application but the most important part of a smooth application is a healthy skincare routine. How you take care of your skin underneath the makeup is essential. Who doesn't love glowing skin? I know I do! I am going to share my skincare routine with you and you might be shocked that it's not as extensive as you think! These days I'm all about simplicity so my routine is quick, simple and easy to follow! Keep reading...

The first step is to always cleanse the face before putting any extra products on the face.

If you're wearing makeup, use a makeup wipe to remove all of your makeup first. For your lips, if you're wearing matte lipstick such as our Velvet Matte Lipstick, because it's so easy to remove, using a makeup wipe to remove your lipstick will do but you can also use a sugar scrub for removal. Using a sugar scrub also helps to remove any dry skin from the lips leaving them soft and smooth, which we LOVE! 

Next, use a dime sized amount of facial cleanser and lather it onto the face. You can use your hands or a brush to massage the cleanser into your skin. Sometimes I use both. Make sure to massage the product into the skin well enough to pick up all the oils and/or additional makeup on your face. 

Wash your face thoroughly with warm water to ensure all cleanser has been removed. Please avoid the eyes when applying and taking off the facial cleanser as it will burn and cause irritation to the eyes.

Use a clean washcloth to dry your face. 

Apply a thin layer of the peel off or clay mask to clean skin. Cover all areas of the face but avoid the eyes and mouth area. Leave the mask on the face for about 5-10 minutes, long enough to fully dry. Your skin should feel like it's tightening and absorbing the product. I suggest doing this at least once a week, at night when you're settling in for the night. 

Remove the mask by peeling it off or using warm water. After removing the mask, your skin should feel clean and refreshed. Like a cool breeze is upon your face.  

Now that the skin is completely clean, it's time to tone! Toner is great for evening out the skin as well as removing any dark spots and/or blemishes. Take a cotton round, and apply a small amount of witch hazel (or whatever you prefer). Rub the toner over the face and neck area.

Last but certainly not least, it's time to moisturize the skin. It's summer and moisturizing is just as important now as it is in the winter. Using a moisturizer that has sunscreen (at least SPF 15) is important because not only does it add moisture back into the skin after cleansing, but it protects the skin from the sun. Apply a dime sized amount of moisturizer, and apply it all over the face and neck area.

To seal the deal, grab our clear lip gloss "FLAWLESS" to hydrate those lips! This gloss is hydrating, thick, creamy and long lasting. It will definitely keep those lips from getting dry and cracked. 

Once your moisturizer and lip gloss is applied, the face should feel silky, smooth and reflect a healthy glow!
