Developing rituals in our lives that refresh and restore our natural beauty is essential to looking and feeling great everyday. Whether you prefer a fresh natural face, or a polished makeup look, one thing we can all agree on is how healthy skin can make all the difference!
Spring and Summer months tend to be fully booked with outside barbecues, pool parties, and vacations, meaning that time to pamper can be limited. But we must not curb a little “TLC” for our skin. I highly recommend setting aside time once a month for a professional facial, but don’t just stop there. Invest in the right products that allow you to pamper your beautiful skin at home.
Trust me ladies, I know skin care products and treatments can be expensive, so get excited because I’ve found a few drugstore treasures that will blow your mind! Follow these 3 steps once a week to watch your skin go from blah to bomb!
Step 1: After washing your face, use a facial scrub to simultaneously rid your skin’s surface of dead skin cells, dirt, and makeup remnants all while exfoliating. My favorite drug store find is Charcoal And Black Sugar Dual Action Scrub and Facial Mask.
Step 2: After scrubbing, apply a deep cleansing clay mask that will pull all the dirt out of your pores to ensure they do not get congested. I’ve been using the Aveda’s Botanical Kinetics Deep Cleansing Clay Masque for years and it always leaves me with an amazing glow in only a matter of minutes.
Step 3: After removing your mask, it’s time to sit back and relax with a moisturizing mask that will brighten and smooth your skin. My absolute favorite is the new Neutrogena Radiance Boost.
Remember Polished ladies, always keep your head up, and your skin, radiant. Our true beauty comes from the ability to love ourselves, so love your skin and it will thank you.
