Mom's don't have time to waste- so let's get started!
In the morning, start with a clean face. Use a gentle cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils.
Starting your day with a clean face is key for healthy skin. A mild cleanser is best when washing your face in the morning, as it won't take away all of its natural oils. Oil cleansers are great for this step as it helps draw out impurities that regular soap often misses. After using an oil cleanser, using a double cleaner with lukewarm water to rinse off will help maintain skin’s pH level. Doing this every morning will make sure your complexion stays looking fresh and dewy all day long.
Apply 100% floral water such as our 100% Rose Water before you apply a thin layer of moisturizer all over your face and neck. You can also use oil serum
Hydrating your skin is an essential step for keeping it looking healthy and radiant. Applying a 100% Rose Water before you moisturize or apply oil serum provides an extra layer of hydration and helps to balance the pH level of your skin. The benefits don't end there - it can also help maintain moisture levels and soothe redness, leaving you with super dewy and glowing skin! So go ahead, give it a try - your mind, body and soul will thank you later :)
If you have any blemishes, apply a spot treatment to those areas.
When it comes to blemishes, hyperpigmentation, or those acne scars you just can't seem to get rid of, the best course of action is to apply a spot treatment. All-over treatments are great, but they often don't address individual problem areas. With a spot treatment you can ensure that your problematic area is getting all the attention and care that it needs. Not only will this help reduce acne breakouts and hyperpigmentation, but it can also help improve your overall complexion and make you feel more confident.
To protect your skin from the harsh winter weather, apply a sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
The winter weather can be harsh on your skin, particularly when the sun is shining and snow is reflecting UV rays. To give it a much needed skin barrier protection, make sure you apply sunscreen that's of at least SPF 30. It'll help to keep your skin hydrated and free from any signs of aged skin. This simple step can prevent flaking, cracking or skin damage due to the chilly winter air. So don't skip out on it; apply your SPF every time you leave the house and keep that skin looking soft and healthy no matter what kind of wintry weather is waiting outside!
Finish off your routine by applying lip balm to keep your lips hydrated throughout the day.
Our lips take a beatinig every day, whether you like to smooch or just are out and about in the elements. And while you may have slathered on your sunscreen and lotion to protect the rest of your skin, your puckers need some special love too! Make sure that you finish off your regular beauty routine by applying lip balm. With an added layer of protection, you can keep your lips smooth and hydrated throughout even the longest days and hectic weeks. Don't forget to show your smile some TLC and break out that lip balm for a little extra care!
