Women I meet in my travels and in my private studio continue to ask me how to get their skin clean. They say they don’t have a clue on what to really do.
I tell them to NEVER go to sleep without washing your face or with the days makeup on (and remove every trace of mascara too) as well as getting a great nights sleep. That is why they call it beauty sleep.
I know that’s not always easy to get when you are sleepless in Seattle. But a good nights sleep is essential nightly as your skin needs it.
You need to make a plan and create a nightly beauty ritual and do it every night.
Do what’s right for you and select a skin care line that is so you. You can mix and match. A soap from one brand and a cream from another. But try and keep a few from the same line if possible so you don’t have an allergic reaction.
Just a few easy steps!
You may use a soap bar (not deodorant) liquid soap but cream cleanser at night.
Rosewater makes a refreshing toner. Stay away from strong alcohol based ones. Way too drying to the skin.
Nourish and Hydrate:
Choose a moisturizer that is light but at night you can use a richer one. It all depends on how your skin is behaving. Your skin changes as the seasons change and from stress or the weather outdoors. Your moisturizer must change to go with the flow.
A hydrating Eye gel or light eye cream is perfect. A little goes a long way.
And remember don’t scrub or rub your face like you’re washing your car or pots and pans. Be gentle with your delicate skin.
Always treat your neck and décolleté to what you put on your face. Not just your face!
So that’s it as far as a SIMPLE nightly skin ritual.
