As promised, let's build you a skin care routine with the Beauty Experts’ Top Picks gift set. So there are a few things that are missing when we think about what your routine will entail. One is that we don't see a toner, and we also don't see an exfoliant. You want to also have a serum or special treatment. Then you can do “bump treatments,” I like to call them, adding extra moisture and hydration as you move along.
Step 1: Cleanse With Stone Crop Gel Wash
I love our Stone Crop Gel Wash. Everybody and anybody can use it - not a problem. It's one of our top sellers and excellent for removing makeup, so you don't need to worry about your eye area.
What about a toner? I have here with me, because I'm following the theme of minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, our Neroli Age Corrective Hydrating Mist. It's beautiful. It's got more density and color, which means it's going to be more moisturizing for you. But don't worry, if you have a combination skin type, feel free to go ahead and use this too.
Step 3: Exfoliate With VitaSkin™ Exfoliating Peel
Then, of course, I mentioned exfoliation. Let's just think fast and quick. It's a busy season. Some of us may not want to sit around for, like, an hour at home and do a skin care routine. So one of my favorites is our VitaSkin™ Exfoliating Peels from the Clear, Calm, Firm or Bright Skin collections. My rule of thumb is on cleansed skin, you just want to pump, wipe and leave.
Step 4: Mask With Bamboo Age Corrective Masque
After applying your peel, wait for about two minutes, then apply the Bamboo Age Corrective Masque. Spread a nice, thin layer over the face. It's creamy in texture, so super easy to apply and very easy to remove.
My favorite way to use these types of cream masks is to place it on the skin, massage it in, work a little harder on your problem areas, so maybe between the brow, across the forehead, all the places that you have a lot of expression - spend a little more time there. Then, let it set in the skin for a few minutes, re-wet it and massage it in again. I recommend doing this three times to get the maximum plumping effect you may be looking for.
After masking, we want to treat the skin. This is a very important step to skin care, especially if you’re looking at minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, as well as minimizing the appearance of dark spots.
To do so, I love Vitamin C serums. Eminence Organics Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum is incredibly special because it not only has Vitamin C, but also has Vitamin E - all the goodies that your skin needs to look its best.
Step 6: Apply Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream
Then I would apply an eye cream, and if you know me, you know which one I'm pulling up. It's our beautiful Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream because I'm addicted to the roll-y ball. This eye cream is a great option as it is very complementary to the products that you're finding in the set.
Step 7: Moisturize With Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer
One of our top ten products, as you may have seen me talk about in the past, is our Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer. It's lightweight enough that even if you have more of a combination skin type, you can also use this. Just add a little bit of water to it before you do the application.
Step 8: Bump With Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil
Now, I don't know if you know where this is, but I'm from Alberta. I am a prairie girl, which means very, very dry winters. I always need a little more “bump” when I go home and visit my family every year. So, in addition to using my moisturizer, I like to add a facial oil. In this case, the Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil.
I wanted to just take a moment to share with you just how much facial oil you need to use. This is a question that comes to me quite often: "I'm over-using. It feels too rich" or, "How am I not using it properly?" The key with facial oils is you literally only need one, maybe two drops - not droppers! Literally, just one beautiful drop is needed, and you're gonna see how far it goes. Application can be done either by massaging it in, or just take it in your hands and press over top of your moisturizer. You will have the most beautifully hydrated, plumped and smoothed skin out there.
With this routine, we know your skin will be soft and bright all holiday season. Has this gift set made your beauty wishlist this year? Let us know in the comments below or join the conversation on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest | LinkedIn | YouTube.
