PRO ARTIST SKINCARE PICKS

IMG_0822

My skincare has always been simple with no routine but since graduating from aesthetics school in June, I threw out everything and started from scratch.  I had no choice.  I studied the largest organ of my body and got my skincare on point for the first time in my life.   Maintaining light + bright skin is easy when you understand the science behind it.   The products I snapped on my instagram are my everyday go-to skincare tools for healthy glowing skin.

My Routine + Acid Virgins

Everyone has different skin and everyone reacts completely independently to ingredients; it’s all about finding what truly works, finding the right ingredients for YOU, and being consistent! :)

Babor Bi-Phase Cleanse •• Everyday, morning+night

Circadia Alpha Beta Peel (Professional Use ONLY) •• Once a week on my forehead & chin line.  Stupid hormones.

Naturopathica Sweet Cherry Enzyme •• Once every two weeks in the shower.

Circadia Vitamin C Serum •• Once a day, everyday before I put on my makeup.  Every women should be using this Vitamin C.  Life changing ;)  for real though!

Circadia Moisturizer (Day/Night) •• Everyday, morning+night

Circadia Sunscreen •• Everyday, ALL DAY.  I admit it, I sleep with SPF on.

There you have it!  My skincare routine. Never take your skin for granted!  Stay out of the sun & out of tanning booths.  90% of aging comes from the sun + 10% from natural aging.  Ya dig?

ACID VIRGINS

IMG_0326It is my belief that Glycolic Acid is one of the best chemical exfoliation for fixing dry skin, brown spots, acne scares, blemishes, clogged pores, chicken pox scares, fine lines and wrinkles.  Out of all the acids, I choose Glycolic for clients because it great for everyone, especially new clients who are acid virgins because it’s gentle and has anti-aging properties.  It has the smallest molecules therefore it penetrates deeper into the skin, creating fast & real results.  Glycolic Acid help’s skin’s appearance through exfoliation forcing new collagen growth and improved elasticity. Everyone should be exfoliating because your skin can’t effectively be moisturized until the dry skin buildup is removed, allowing you to get the best penetration out of your product.   Glycolic Acid is a cure all in my book!

How should I use Glycolic Acid?

For a chemical exfoliation:  I suggest that you use a Glycolic Serum at night only, for seven nights on, seven night off alternating with a hydrating cream or serum.  I recommend hydrating with Circadia AquaPorin Hydrating Cream to boost moisture, protecting from water loss while using a glycolic acid.

Recommended Product:  Glycolic Lotion Face Peel 10%

For manual exfoliation: I suggest using a scrub like Babor Mild Peeling 2-3 times a week on your off days in conjunction with the Glycolic Lotion for improved product penetration.

Recommended Product: Babor Mild Peeling

SUMMER BUYS: NO-MAKEUP MAKEUP LOOK

f4b11d54ab3c06e8676750d45b332a78

THE NO-MAKEUP LOOK is my everyday look when I am with clients.   Most professional makeup artists hate wearing makeup all the time and rather focus on having healthy skin.  I love doing makeup on other people, but I am more focused on having healthy radiant skin for myself. These are all great products for a radiant look, even if you didn’t get much sleep the night before.  These products are truly staples in my beauty bag.

You will also notice that I have added ESTHETICIAN TIP‘s with some of my product recommendations for all my professional cyber-friends.
