I am so happy its Friday and the weekend is finally here. I don’t know about you, but I am excited! Speaking of exciting things, I am sharing an amazing collaboration with Divya Amarnani of Amarnani XO today a dear and fellow spice blogger.
Ladies, while wearing makeup is all well and good, but having a proper skin care regimen is the key to healthy skin. Having healthy skin should be a priority for every woman.
I have suffered with acne since I was a teenager up until this very moment. After trying countless acne medications and products prescribed by dermatologists through the years and not getting very far- other than ultra dry, patchy, sensitive skin (and now hyper-pigmentation). I have reached out to Divya who is every verse and well educated in Skin Care for consultation. She was very thorough and encouraged me that great skin starts with a consistent skincare regimen. She put me on a very simple routine using Simple Products. Here is my current everyday (and night) skincare routine.
My Morning Skin Care Routine includes:
Step 1 | Cleanse – Massage pea-sized amount of Simple Kind to Skin Refreshing Facial Gel into dampened face for 30 seconds; rinse with warm water, pat dry.
Step 2 | Tone – Saturate cotton ball with Aloe Vera Juice and swipe cotton ball across entire face
Step 3 | Moisturize – Gently apply Simple Kind to Skin Light Moisturizer to entire face and neck.
My Night Routine Skin Care Routine includes:
Step 1 | Remove Makeup – Massage a small amount of Virgin Coconut oil into a dampened face one minute (or as long as you like).
Step 2 | Cleanse – Massage pea-sized amount of Simple Kind to Skin Refreshing Facial Gel into dampened face for 30 seconds; rinse with warm water, pat dry.
Step 3 | Tone – Saturate cotton ball with Aloe Vera Juice and swipe cotton ball across entire face
Step 4 | Treat– Apply Stridex (you can obtain one from Divya)to the affected acne area using one single pad Apply avoiding the under eye area.
Step 4 | Moisturize – Gently apply Simple Kind to Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturizer together with a small pea size of coconut oil to entire face and neck.
Protect Your Skin Throughout the Day – Using an SPF throughout the day, even when the sun isn’t out, is important because most SPF’s only provide a couple hours of protection on average.
Drink (enough) water – To determine your hydration needs, do the following calculation: your weight in pounds divided by 2. (ie: a 150 lb. woman should drink 75 ounces of water each day).
Get enough sleep – The phrase, “make sure to get your beauty rest” is true! Even our skin- the body’s largest organ, requires rest and rejuvenation.
Always take your makeup off – Leaving makeup, impurities and debris on your skin clogs pores, which cause breakouts.
Pay attention to what affects your skin – Certain foods, stress and hormonal changes are major contributors to skin changes and breakouts.
