I was standing in line at Costco today, when I was approached by a woman who wanted to know, "What is your secret? How do you keep your skin so beautiful?" I let her know that it is not a secret at all. I started Art of Skin Care because I wanted to help others achieve the same success with their skin that I have. I have tested every product we carry so I know they work and I am dedicated to sharing my skin care knowledge with others.
Today, I want to share with you my current skin care routine. These are the things that are giving my skin that extra juicy glow that gets strangers complimenting my skin even at the age of 55. I am loving the results and you will too!
First, I cleanse my face with Sorella Apothecary's Orange You Jelly Cleanser. With the cleanser still on my face I use My Skin Buddy on it's red setting. This helps the cleanser draw dirt up and out of my skin while simultaneously rejuvenating it. Once my face is clean, I spritz on Sculplla Stem-Cell Mist. This is a natural filler, that, over time, fills and plumps fine lines. It also preserves filler, for those that have had filler injections.
Next, I apply Purue Soft Peeling Mask. Sheet masks can feel icky (cold, damp, bleck) so I like to warm mine up and help the products penetrate even deeper by using My Skin Buddy on top (trust me, its worth it!). With the sheet mask on I massage over the top with My Skin Buddy set to the vibrate only setting for 5 minutes. I then remove the mask and use the My Skin Buddy on the Red setting again for 5 minutes to infuse the leftover serum. Once finished, I blot away any remaining serum with my fingers and spread it onto my neck, arms and back of hands.
Finally, It's time to seal in moisture and protect my skin from daily pollutants and sun damage. I do this by first applying Sorella Pomegranate Acacia Antioxidant Serum for hydration and protection from pollution, followed by the extra firming Sorella Blueberry Milk Moisturizer. I then apply Sorella Quench & Protect for protection from aging sun damage. I am in love with the Sorella Avocado Lip Hydrator and apply it before heading out to face the day.
I like to keep my makeup simple. I apply Illuminare Moisturizing Mineral Foundation in Portofino Porcelain followed by their coordinated blush also in Portofino Porcelain. My favorite brush is the Illuminare Flat Top Brush. I apply a few dots of foundation to the brush, pat the dots across my nose and cheek and then blend downward. I also have clients that love to just mix this foundation with their sunscreen. It is super easy to use and gives a magnificent glowy finish.
For lips I use Jane Iredale's Paris Just Kissed Lip Plumper. I especially like this for aging lips because it lightly plumps (ginger oil), hydrates (shea butter, sunflower oil, avocado oil) and the color doesn't collect in fine lines around the mouth.
I finish the look with Grande Lash Conditioner and Mascara.
First, I wash away the day's dirt and grime with Sorella Apricot Mango Cleansing Milk. This creamy cleanser feels and smells sensuous and calming after a long day. It also gently removes my eye makeup. I follow my cleanser again with Sculppla Stem Cell mist.
Finally, I add that much needed moisture with Sorella Facial Nectar. On my particularly dry spots (neck and cheeks,) I pat on Sorella Facial Balm for extra moisturizing protection. My skin care is complete when I apply sweet dose of Sorella Avocado Lip Hydrator.
