Having a daily four step skin care regimen is extremely beneficial for your skin. Taelor Holland, owner of Skin I’m In Skin Essentials & Beauty Bar was here today to share how a consistent routine will help heal and or maintain healthy skin. Here’s more from her:
If you’re anything like me I suffered from cystic prone acne for a while. Using the wrong products and not being consistent were some triggers. I was able to heal my skin completely when I educated myself on the right natural products and most importantly being consistent on a daily basis.
Step 1: Cleanser — Example: Turmeric,Honey, Goat Milk Cleanser
This is great for all skin types. It helps with scarring, hydration, smooth and soft skin, and breakouts. Make sure you wash your face twice daily with luke warm water only. Cleanser gets rid of dirt, oil, makeup, and bacteria. It helps prevent your pores from clogging.
Step 2: Toner — Example Alcohol free witch hazel, rose water , or micellar water
Toner should be applied twice a day as well. A great toner to use is an alcohol free witch hazel. I have a created one and will be dropping later this month.Toner helps balance skins PH. When we cleanse our skin our cleanser strips our natural oils and causes our skin to become too oily or too dry.
Step 3: Serum My Glow Babe serum
Serum is my favorite part of the regimen. This also should be applied twice a day. Serum is your “preventer” and protector. There are so many different types of serums. They’re serums for acne, anti aging, hydration, and hyper-pigmentation. Serum also helps protect your skin from free radicals. My Glow Babe serum is my number one seller. The Glow Babe Serum is an all purpose serum. It heals breakouts, scaring, cuts and burns while also hydrating and provided a glow.
Step 4: Moisturize — Example: Trader Joes Green Tea & Aloe Vera Gel Moisturizer
Applying a daily moisturizer is important as well. Moisturizer helps lock in moisture to maintain a health and balance. It leaves your skin feeling soft. Moisturizer actually can help control oily skin as well. Moisturizer should be applied twice a day. My favorite type of moisturizer is a Gel based moisturizer, its very light weight and doesn’t cause congestion.
Two things that can boost your skin results would be to add a mask and exfoliate once or twice a week four days apart. My favorite masks are mud masks because they hydrate, prevent breakouts, pull out impurities and leave your skin glowing. I make wonderful mud mask for all skin types.
Lastly Exfoliating is super important. Exfoliating removes your dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and leaves skin soft and radiant. My exfoliates are natural and not abrasive to the skin. Make sure not to buy the scrubs that have walnut, apricot shells or silicon beads. These can make micro tears in you skin.
