Let’s face it, we all want perfect, glowy, clear skin and most of us have no idea where to being. Skin care in number one for us and its super important to take good care of your skin. Skin care is always important but especially during these warmer months when we find ourselves at the beach and pool, wearing little or no makeup. We’re here to give you some of our tips, tricks, and hacks on how we keep our skin look fresh and clear.
Diet, in our opinion, is the absolute most important thing when it comes to taking care of your skin. Eating greasy food will definitely clog your pores and that will cause breakouts so try to stay away from pizza and fast food. Eating healthy is important but the biggest tip we have is to drink a ton of water! Not drinking enough water can dehydrate your skin, causing your skin to look older, so drinking water throughout the day will help to make your skin look younger and glowy.
You guys! We can’t stress enough how important it is to wash your face, especially when your wearing makeup. You never ever want to fall asleep with your makeup on, EVER, this will literally ruin your skin. So no matter how tired you are or how much you drank, wash your face, even if your just using a makeup wipe. We have tired so many different face washes, but have found some favorites along the way. Lately, we’ve been loving the (Olehenriksen Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser), we usually use this in the AM and it makes your face feel so refreshed. We also love the (Vichy Purete Thermale Fresh Cleansing Gel) to wash our face in the PM, it really helps to wash off the day. Other oldies but goodies for us are (Purity), which we’ve been using for years and the (Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Gel Cleanser), which is seriously so bomb and one of our all time favorites!
Scrubbing and exfoliating is super important and will basically remove all the dead skin on your face, leaving your skin feeling fresh and smooth! Without scrubbing the face wash, serums, and masks, won’t get the chance to really absorb into your skin, causing them to not work as well. We have been loving the (Brooklyn Botany all over scrub), it really help to detoxify the face and leaves it feeling so refreshed! If you are in a rush or don’t have as much time, we really love the (ExfoliKate), which is a scrub/mask you can use in the shower. If your really looking to deep clean your face, which we like doing at least once a week, we really recommend using a facial brush like the (Soniclare from Michael Todd). The new kit is freaking awesome and even comes with a few attachments, which is great! This will really help to remove built up oils and dead skin, which can cause breakouts. More on the facial brush coming soon!
Serums have been a new product we’ve recently added to our skin care regime and its been a total game changer! Serums basically transform your skin and help to even skin tone by reducing the look scares, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation. First of all, the (Brooklyn Botany Vitamin C Serum) has literally changed our lives and has helped our skin so much! If you are anything like us and suffer from redness or scars and discoloration, you need this! Our skin has improved so much overall ever since using it and we can’t say enough good things about it! We’ve also been loving the Idealia (Life Serum from Vichy), which is literally life! It smell absolutely amazing and really help your skin look bright and youthful!
We freaking love masks! Every kind of mask from clay to sheet, from eye to lip masks, you name it, we love it! There are so many different types of masks and they all do a little something different. They can help the skin in a number or different ways from, clearing out impurities to brightening your skin tone. We love to use different masks that target different things back to back, and will sometimes do 3 or 4 in a row. That may sound crazy, but its totally fine on your skin and will make you feel like a brand new person! Being mask obsessed, we have tried a ton but right now we’ve been using the (Double Glow Peel) and (Mineral Pre Purifying) masks from Vichy. The peel honestly transformed our skin, you skin will literally glow after using this a few times! You don’t actually peel it off, but after its sets you gently scrub your face then rinse it off. It makes your skin feel brand new! The Mineral mask is a clay mask and has the best texture we’ve felt seen in a mud mask. It is so smooth and creamy and makes your face feel incredibly soft!
