The #1 question I’m asked most often is “what type of skincare do you use?” This is always my favorite topic and I love sharing as much as I possibly can when it comes to skincare. I have a pretty strict routine making it difficult to explain all at once. So I’ve decided to do this skincare series to share my coveted secrets! First up…best facial cleansers 🙂
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser: I’ll start with this one as I typically use this cleanser “IF” I wash my face in the morning. I’m emphasizing “IF” as I try not to wash my face with any cleansers in the morning. I’ve spoken to several dermatologist about this and they all agree that rinsing your face with water only is best to start your day. Especially as we get older! Using cleansers first thing in the morning can strip away natural moisture that we’ve built in our skin’s protective barriers while sleeping (in case you weren’t aware, our cell turnover increases significantly while we sleep). However…if you find you must wash your face in the morning due to sweating during an early morning workout, etc…this is the cleanser you should use!
This is a creamy, hydrating cleanser containing ceramides and hyaluronic acid which moisturize and restore the skin. This cleanser is non-comedogenic (doesn’t clog pores), non-drying, and non-irritating. The perfect way to start your day with fresh, dewy skin. This product is inexpensive and can usually be purchased at your local pharmacy or grocery store. I prefer this product over other pharmacy brands because of it’s patented MVE delivery technology. This technology provides a controlled release of skin-nurturing ingredients slowly over time. Helping to restore and maintain the natural protective function of your skin and keep it looking healthy!
Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel: Ok this product is an all time fave! I’ve been using Peter Thomas Roth for 13 years now and it never disappoints. This cleanser in particular is magic. Not only is it packed with anti-aging ingredients, it gently cleanses deep into the pores removing dirt, impurities, and makeup. It also exfoliates the skin sweeping away dead skin cells that dull your complexion. I became even more of a believer in this cleanser when I convinced my boyfriend to start using it nightly as part of his skincare routine. He’s a professional tennis player so his face is always riddled with massive amounts of sweat and sunscreen. This type of lifestyle is a sure way to have regular breakouts and clogged pores which is why a good cleanser is so essential. This cleanser alone completely transformed his skin. He no longer deals with unnecessary breakouts, clogged pores, or a dull complexion. So for all you men out there… the answer is YES, these skincare tips work for you too!
I use this foaming gel cleanser every night before bed as it leaves my skin feeling fresh, clean, and revitalized. It’s anti-wrinkle technology helps to clarify and brighten the skin with glycolic acid, salicylic acid, extracts of peach, white oak bark, lemon, lime, linden, grapefruit, and arginine. An advanced deep pore resurfacing action supports natural cell turnover to help diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
Too Cool For School Egg Mousse Soap: I came across this product when I began researching Korean beauty secrets. Korean’s have maintained beautiful skin throughout the ages. So whatever they’re doing…I want some! It turns out that Korean skincare has used egg extract for some time now. Egg contains collagen and protein which our skin craves. This creamy mousse cleanser is packed with amino acids and free of sulfates and parabens. It’s gentle on the skin, smells delicious, and leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean and hydrated. If you like a gentle, foaming mousse cleanser, give this one a try!
