What I like is no-fuss, two-step, no-brainer style skincare (and makeup, tbh). I know, a girl's got to give herself enough me-time to stay sane. Except, 'me-time', is also on a schedule and pampering doesn't happen nearly as often as it should. There's always something burning in the oven, someone to call back, a text to anxiously await, some work to do, and even some laundry to pick up that you forgot about.
Along with the few things that I know for sure, like, to choose love not fear, is that everyone needs a seventh day for beauty rest and restoration. And, that a girl should always remember to wash her face before bed. Unless, she wants to wake up next to him, with a pimple on her chin.
My 84 year old, grandmother, swears her flawless skin can be attributed to the fact that since she's been a teenager, she's cleansed her skin daily. She gently exfoliates, uses natural face masks to enhance what's there and clean up what shouldn't be, and never
would be caught going to sleep with a full face of make up on. She also uses a daily moisturizer with light SPF, everyday. I think we can account her wrinkle free, radiant skin at 80-something, to this. So, no excuse, ladies. Get it right, keep those pores tight.
Since I'm always trying to get my JLO glow on and look like I'm beaming, at all times, keeping my skin hydrated - and dewy - is strictly my main concern. I've used Glossier's Mask Duo Set since this Summer until now, and am struck by the unbelievable way it instantly leaves my skin feeling hydrated, rejuvenated, and balanced.
First, comes the detox. In keeping with the idea of leafy greens in your diet, the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack, abstracts all the dirty nonsense that shouldn't be in your pores and replaces it with vitamins to help boost your skin to it's natural purity. Let's consider this similar to stopping to grab a Green Juice from Grassroots or something, except, this time, it's for your face. It dries quickly - in less than 20 minutes! - so you'll have just enough time to file your nails and maybe put some rollers in your hair.
Next up, the Moisturizing Moon Mask. I just love the way that sounds, don't you? If it seems magical, it is. A mostly plant derived blend, that includes a little lemon to softly brighten, this follow-up mask, soothes your skin in an instant.
And, if you have sensitive skin, like I do, then you'll love the fact that these masks are fragrance free. Gentle does it, it's only your moneymaker, after all.
Let me know how it goes! Wait, is that your skin glowing? Or, is it my imagination.
