Great skin care is more than just a day cream and lip balm, it’s all about the routine. Check out our pointers for the best methods to cleanse, moisturize, and protect your skin.
CLEANSING & EXFOLIATING
Wash your face every evening especially if you wear make up. Why? Because cleansing your face clears pores of debris to prevent dirt buildup, allowing the serum oil to reach the skin surface unimpeded; decreasing the chances of a breakout. Exfoliate your skin 1-2 times a week if your skin is dry-normal and 3-4 times a week if it is combination/oily.
Try: Lancome Creme Radiance Clarifying Cream-To-Foam Cleanser, Guerlain Bibhase Eye Makeup Remover and Peter Thomas Roth’s Strawberry Scrub ( for all skin types ).
Protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays to slow down the aging process and most importantly, to lower your risk of getting skin cancer. Wear sunblock every single day, it’s your best anti-aging cream!
Try: Sisley Paris Sunleya spf 50 sunblock
Body scrubs are an easy way to keep the skin of your body smooth and healthy looking. All year around. A good scrub removes dead skin cells, dirt and oil and helps to unclog the pores and expose your skin ‘s underlaying healthier layers.
The skin around your eyes is much thinner so you will notice fine lines and aging sooner. Use eye area creams or gels day and night.
Try La Prairie Cellular 0.5 ounce Eye Contour Cream or for puffy eyes Peter Thomas Roth Ccamber De-Tox De-Puffing Eye-Cubes.
A face mask should be part of your weekly beauty routine. If you have dry-normal skin use cream-based hydrating face masks 1-3 times a week. For more oily skin, the oil absorbing masks are the ones you need to use 2-4 times a week. Paper-sheet face masks are also an amazing option especially on long flights to re-fresh your face before landing.
For dry-normal skin try Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask . For combination/oily skin – Chanel Purifying Cream Mask. For a big refresher, try Guerlain Super Aqua Sheet Mask
HANDS AND NAILS
Don’t forget the importance of taking care of your hands and nails. Invest in a good hand cream and don’t forget the sunblock!
Try Jenna Hipp Essential Hand & Nail Cream
We all know the importance of a lip balm: nobody likes dry cracked lips. If your lips are super dry use lip exfoliation product on your lips gently to remove any dry skin off the lips and right after add a thick layer of a lip mask for 10-15 minutes.
Try Fresh: Sugar Lip Polish , Kaplan MD Perfect Pout Lip Mask and finish your lip treatment with Peter Thomas Roth’s Un-Wrinkle Lip Treatment or Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil.
Choosing the right makeup is an essential part of a good skin care routine. Many foundations contain skin serums and SPF. Find the right one for you!
