Did you know you ONLY need are 4 skin care products morning & night?
Why do we complicate our routines so much?
Turn on the TV, pick up a magazine, hop on social media & all you see is
“BUY THIS SKIN CARE PRODUCT TO FIX XYZ PROBLEM FOR GOOD & TAKE 30 YEARS OFF YOUR SKIN!”
No wonder why so many of us are confused as hell when it comes to your skin.
I’ve been a licensed esthetician for almost 15-years and if there is ONE piece of wisdom that I can impart you with today, it’s the fact that we don’t need to constantly buy products searching for that “next-best” magic serum.
Most of us don’t even take care of our skin’s properly at home, so we need guidance & knowledge.
Unfortunately, most of these so-called experts you see on social media, videos & online tutorials, they are just people who love skin & love to share the latest “trends” with the world.
That’s great & I love their passion, however, they are NOT educated in the skin, how it functions, why specific skin conditions can occur and they certainly can’t help you fix them!
Estheticians have a bad rap for product pushing, which is certainly not the case in my treatment room.
For example, if I have a brand new client who’s not even washing her face morning & night, the last thing I’m going to do is send her home with a line-full of products.
My #1 goal with that client is to get her to just start washing her face.
Maybe it’s because her cleanser dries her out, so I adjust that product & offer her something that I KNOW will work for her skin’s specific needs.
I know what will work for her, because I just the spent the last hour touching her face & seeing how she responds to my products, from that assessment, I can provider her with a working solution to solve her problem.
If it’s not a product issue and it’s a time issue, we address that too and figure out a time in her day that WILL work so she makes sure to always wash her face both morning and night.
Why only 4 products?
To be truly effective, you first need to find a product line that you absolutely love and offers you the results & skin that you have always wanted.
Once you’ve established that, here are the products that you ONLY should have at home…
- Cleanser – make sure it’s not an exfoliating cleanser because you’ll use this both morning & night.
- Exfoliant – either an enzyme or gommage, which are gentle on the skin & won’t damage your skin’s barrier. Exfoliation is designed to remove unwanted dead skin cells, not remove layers!
- Serum – don’t buy these over-the-counter because most contain too many filler ingredients that make the product feel good over actually delivering results. And don’t fall into the front-label trap of believing what you see on the front! Seek out a professional for a good serum.
- Moisturizer – you’ll need both a morning with SPF and night without SPF to keep your skin hydrated.
Now that you have your products, just get started!
Find a time of day and night that will work for your schedule.
NOTE: Exfoliation should ONLY be done 2 times a week – any more than that and you can either sensitize your skin or dehydrate it.
