Face Wash & Exfoliating

When it comes to taking off your makeup and cleaning your face, ladies PLEASE avoid makeup wipes! They are incredibly drying on the skin which is what we are trying to avoid, especially during the winter months.

Exfoliating is the key to a brighter completion, which we all want! Try and stick to exfoliating only once or twice a week.

Cleansing & Toning

Cleansing is an important step in a healthy skincare regime. It hydrates and preps the skin for moisturizers, serums and masks.

Truthfully, toning is a step you can skip as it’s really just an extra benefit but do try it if you can.

Caudalie Moisturizing Toner effectively cleansers, softens and hydrates the skin. This gentle toner revitalizes the complexation of skin with its highly concentrated moisture-rich consistency.



Moisturizing & SPF Protection

Screen Shot 2017-02-15 at 10.06.32 AMWe cannot stress the importance of wearing SPF everyday. SPF should always be the last step in your skincare routine and the first step in your makeup routine. Go no lower than SPF 30 in order to fully protect against burn, pigmentation, dark sports and fight against premature aging. Clinique Mineral Sunscreen Fluid For Face-Board Spectrum SPF 30 is an oil-free, ultra-lightweight mineral sunscreen. This quick-absorbing formula is comfortable for sensitive skin and gentle enough to use around the eye area, and looks great in flash photography!
