So ladies *insert long eye to eye stare LOL* let's have a pretty candid talk about your SKIN. Long before I decided to go to esthetician school, I've been obsessed with the health of skin primarily because of my line of work in the makeup industry.
I can't tell you how many times, I would get a customer that would come in and ask for a foundation whether it be a liquid or powder because her skin was oily.. At this point I would backtrack and ask about a skincare regimen... (9 times out of 10 she didn't have one) but whether she did or didn't, I always felt it was a very important conversation to have.
You see, life can be hectic at times, and maybe once out of the week you may be so tired that you forget to take off your makeup or forget your toner, but it's very important to have a daily routine that you follow to keep the health of your skin up to par. The healthier your skin, the better any type of makeup you choose to wear will look.
My personal routine includes, a cleanser, exfoliator (I use a couple times a week), toner, moisturizer and eye cream.
Now I don't use products all from the same brand, one because my pockets can't handle it LOL and two I like different products from different lines and collectively they give my skin great results.
Here's a small break down of the products I use and where they can be found in store (click for site):
- Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser $11-50
- Philosophy Micro-delivery Exfoliating Wash $8-60
- Murad Hydrating Toner $30
- Murad Hydro Dynamic Ultimate Moisture $75
With these different brands, you can get the smaller travel versions before investing in larger sizes but they are all definitely worth the investment. If the prices are a little too steep for your budget, research other brands that have the same effective ingredients but more cost effective.
