Skin care is the most important part of any beauty regimen. Makeup can be amazing at covering up anything from breakouts, fine lines, and dull skin but if you focused more on your skin underneath your makeup, you’ll soon realize the application of makeup is so much easier and your overall confindence with your skin will change! Of course drinking lots of water and eating healthy will make a huge difference in your skin, but using the right products will too! We are constantly trying out new skin care products and when we find new favs, we have to share them with you! We have been trying out a ton of new products from Cosmedix and figured we update you guys on our current skin care routine. Cosmedix is an incredible skincare brand that stays away from harsh chemicals and instead uses science and nature. We have definitely noticed a huge difference in the tone, texture, and overall appearance of our skin. If you want hear more from us, check out our youtube video below!
Cleansing Oil- If you struggle removing your makeup, try a cleansing oil! We have been loving one from Cosmedix lately, it has a really great formula like literally melts your makeup off. We typically will use a makeup wipe to remove the oil or just go in with some warm warmer to help emulsify and rinse clean.
Face Wash- We have used so many different face washes but recently we have gone back to an oldie but goodie, Purity. This is a great gentle cleanser that that really gives you a deep clean and helps to remove any makeup left behind after using a cleansing oil.
Masks/Scrubs- We don’t do this step every night, but finding a great mask and using them consistently can be life changing for your skin! We have been using the Clear Deep Cleansing Mask and the Pure Enzymes Cranberry Exfoliating Mask from Cosmedix and really saw a difference right away! Also, using a great scrub a few times a week will help gently remove dead and dull skin. If we are feeling like our skin needs extra hydration we love the Rescue Intense Hydrating Balm and Mask that can be worn for a little bit or even overnight.
Toners- This may seem strange, but toners are an obsession in our life. We have been loving the Purity Balance Exfoliating Prep Toner which is great to remove any traces of makeup and impurities left after washing your face, which can clog your pores. This is also perfect for evening out your skin tone, which has been huge for us! We have also been using the Benefit Balance Antioxidant Infused Toning Mist which helps to nourish your skin and defends against free radical damage. We love using this toner throughout the day as a great pick me up for our skin.
Oils- Oils are something we only use a few times a week as well. We have been using the DAILY REJUVE FACIAL OIL from Cactus, which is really great when our skin is feeling extra dry. We also love the BrooklynBotany Vitamin C serum, it really helps to brighten up your skin as well as their Tea Tree Oil which you can use for a million things!
Eye Cream- Eye Cream has always been an important step for us because we both definitely have some fine lines around our eyes. We have been using two by Cosmedix recently. We use the Eye Genius Brilliant Eye Complex in the morning because if combats dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. It also has Mica in it, which helps to help make your under eyes appear brighter. For nighttime, we’ve been reaching for the Opti Crystal Liquid Crystal Eye Serum, which has the coolest color we’ve ever seen in a skin care product! This eye cream is super thick and helps provide deep hydration and reduces the look of fine lines and crows feet.
Vega Lash/ Vega Brow- These products have really made such a huge difference for us! We definitely struggle with lash and eyebrow growth and both Vega Lash and Vega Brown have worked wonders for us! We use them both day and night and find that using them consistently is really what helps to see a dramatic difference in the length and fullness and your lashes and brows.
Lotion- Finding a great face lotion can be tough but recently we have been obsessed with the Charolette Tilbury Magic Cream. This is seriously amazing and has really helped our skin feel so rejuvenated and glowy! We find it works great as both a day and night cream and it also works great underneath makeup. If we are spending a lot of time in the sun, we also really love the Peptide- Rich Defense Moisturizer with SPF 50 because it is really important to protect your skin from the harsh UV rays from the sun.
