Many of you have asked what my skin care routine is like or which products I have in my regime. So, I thought I’d add it in as a small post to help inspire you to try some new products or ideas at home. I do like to mix it up, so it is always changing a bit. But right now this is what I’ve been doing at home. Please note that while I use lots of products (along with some food items) for face and body, alternating them the way I do allows me to make them last. I get at least 3 months out of most of my products, and some (like Topical C, Moisture Mist, Acne Serum, and Retinol Peeling Cream) last even longer!
Every day before I shower, I dry brush to increase circulation and help encourage a healthy lymphatic system. Dry brushing also gentle exfoliates the skin. Read more on dry brushing here.
Cleanse with Aroma Bella Cleansing Lotion or 1 dollup of Raw Organic Honey (on damp skin)
Tone (when needed) with Aroma Bella Aloe Freshner
Treat and hydrate with Sanitas Rejuven-A or Vita Rich Serum and a few pumps of Moisture Mist
Apply Everyday Minerals Foundation or DNA Sol Protection SPF 28
Spot Treating, usually in the evenings, or as needed for healing
Sanitas Topical C is a staple in our home. Both my husband and I use this for lip balm (because many traditional chap-sticks make lips more dry) and as a rapid wound healer for minor burns and irritations.
I love using DNA’s Mediclear Acne Serum for hormonal breakouts as a spot treatment. It works quickly to reduce inflammation and rapidly heal the breakout without drying or depleting the skin!
Twice a week
Mask and Scrub! I choose between Aroma Bella’s Replenishing Mask and Sanitas’ Tea Tree Mask – both are awesome! I also use Malie Organics’ Renew Body Polish in the shower, which contains Hawaiian sugar, ginger and sweet lime to exfoliate, hydrate and brighten my skin.
*I also really enjoy adding in freshly home-made masks (my current fav is blended organic papaya fruit with raw honey to hydrate and exfoliate,) and will replace my usual weekly mask with a fresh one when I have more down time!
Twice a month
For two evenings in a row, twice a month, I will substitute Sanitas Retinol Peeling Cream (available by special order through the spa) for my usual Rejuven-A in order to give my skin’s metabolism a little “boost.”
