Get ready for bed with me!
Beauty has always been important to me; especially when it comes to taking care of my skin. I mean, you only get one face right?! I have problematic skin - yes still in my late 30’s - which is prone to breakouts so it’s important that I stick to a routine, especially because I’m on TV (in HD) almost every day.
After years of experimenting with the latest beauty products, researching, learning from some of the best dermatologists in the city along with friends, estheticians and make up artists, I’ve finally found the beauty routine that works for me… scroll through for my personal picks and for a video of how I self-care each and every night!
FIRST: Face Wash
I use SkinCeuticals Replenishing Cleanser for a deep cleanse… without stripping my skin of any moisture.
SECOND: Toner (every other night or when I’m wearing a lot of make up)
I apply BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE LOTION P50 with a cotton pad.. every other night or when I’m wearing a lot of make up. After applying all over, I wipe over the congested area on my face multiple times.
This liquid exfoliator gets my skin as clean as possible. The smell might take a little getting used to (haha) but it’s really so refreshing on my skin.
THIRD: Eyes (every night)
I absolutely love this LA MER eye concentrate cream. It’s definitely one of the more costly products I use, however, it lasts me about three months… costing just $2.00 a day! So if y’all ask me, this is the cheaper way to go over Botox!
Here, I apply this cream from the edge of my brow to the inner corner of my eye.
FOURTH: Treatment (every other night)
This Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment is a total game changer… I never travel without this product! I sleep with this treatment on my face and when I wake up in the morning..it’s total I woke up like dis vibes!
I apply this topical exfoliator treatment all over my face and it clarifies, smoothens, and retextures my skin. It really has the biggest impact on my face.
FIFTH: Serums layered (every other night)
These iS Clinical serums are used for different purposes.. and I apply them both on my face.. I discovered these serums through several dermatologists and high end facialists.
First, the active serum targets any acne and problematic skin. It definitely tingles on my skin, but that’s how you know it’s working!
Second, the pro-heal serum helps reduce any inflammation and hyper pigmentation. It nourishes my skin.
AS NEEDED: For moisturizer, there are a few products I use depending on how my skin feels.
When my skin is feeling dehydrated I apply the LA MER renewal oil on my face, neck, and décolleté. When my face feels dry, I use this LA MER moisturizing cool gel cream all over. I use oil -free hydration because of my oily / sensitive skin. In the summer, when I need instant but light hydration, I apply the Kale + Spinach Green Tea Hyaluronic Acid.
