As much as I miss putting a full face of makeup on, my skin is loving every second of quarantine! What better time to focus on you, inside and out? The key to a flawless makeup application is good skin. Currently I am soaking in all the skincare I can right now while my face is breathing without any makeup, and you should be too! So, ladies, gentleman, and brides to be, here are some of our top 10 go to products we are living for!
Ashley’s go to skincare products!
1. Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate https://www.kiehls.com/skincare/face-oils/midnight-recovery-face-oil/819.html
Okay, this may be my favorite one. I apply a few drops of this before I moisturize at night. I will be re purchasing this every time! It gives my skin such a beautiful glow. When I wake up my skin is already so moisturized and smooth. It helps even out my skin tone and it has helped with small blemishes and texture from dry patches!
2. First Aid Beauty Facial radiance padshttps://www.firstaidbeauty.com/skin-care/product/face-cleansers-exfoliators/exfoliating-facial-pads
This is a new find for me and I am already completely out and have to re purchase! These pads help exfoliate, tone and brighten. I have seen the biggest difference with this using it in my morning skincare routine, as a toner pad and than applying a daytime serum. It really helps refresh your skin to pull off a beautiful healthy skin glow.
3. Laneige Lip sleeping maskhttps://us.laneige.com/lip-sleeping-mask
Do not forget about your lips when your are thinking skincare! This product is my new go to lip mask for my night time skincare routine. It is important to exfoliate your lips to be sure you are penetrating all layers of the skin. This lip mask smooths, firms and lightly melts away dead skin on the lips overnight. Leaving you with silky smooth lips.
4. Purity cleanser by philosophy https://www.philosophy.com/purity-made-simple.html
This is an oldie but a goodie so I refuse to not talk about it. This is my go to cleanser I’ve used for 7 years now!! Guys, this is the one product that I have not had to change in my routine because it never lets me down. It is a great cleanser for all skin types. It is lightweight and does it’s job. I like my cleanser to be simple so I can take care of my skins with all my other products, and this does just the job!
5. Peace out Acne (acne healing dots)https://peaceoutskincare.com
I flew through my first pack of these and I cannot wait for more to come in. I typically find myself with hormonal, stress or bad food pimples, as I like to call it. Treating it as soon as possible is my plan for action. These dots are skin tone patches that you apply right on top of a blemish. I cannot stress how much I love this product! It is so satisfying to remove your dot and see the blemish remove from your skin! It’s something you have to see to believe, please invest!
Kelly’s go to skincare products!
6. Lait U Milk Cleanser by Biological recherché https://www.shoprescuespa.com/lait-u-2.html
Cleansers are essential and the foundation to any good skincare routine. Lait U is suitable for all skin types. It is applied on dry skin and massaged until fully absorbed. (Sometimes I’ll leave it on for a few minutes as a treatment). Then rinsed with cold water. It leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated without an oily film that is sometimes left behind after cleansing. Lait U has been in my medicine cabinet for the past 3 years and it’s not going anywhere!
7. Weleda Skin Food https://www.weleda.com/product/s/skin-food-with-free-travel-size-mini
This product does it all! Skin food is a rich thick cream that can be applied to your face, body hands, and lips! I love using this product as my neck cream at night and to baste my lips before bed. When my hands are dry this is the first thing I grab. If you have really dry skin you can use it as a moisturizer. However I would not recommend using it that way if you have oily or acneic skin. This product is also great to have in your makeup bag. I like to use it as a highlighter for a wet, super glossy look. I also use it on a flat liner brush to help sharpen and clean up my wing liner. The is the most versatile product I own. Anyone can benefit from Weleda skin food!
8. Masque Vernix by Biological recherché https://www.shoprescuespa.com/creme-masque-vernix.html
“You know when your skin was really amazing? The day you were born. The delivery room is now providing anti-aging skincare inspiration. Biologique Recherche Creme Masque Vernix uses a mix of fatty emollients that stimulate vernix, the waxy coating on newborn baby skin.” — Allure There’s no denying that your skin will look and feel like a baby’s butt after you use this! I love wearing a thin layer of this mask to sleep or mixing it in my moisturizer!
9. Ren Glycol Lactic Mask https://usa.renskincare.com/collections/masks/products/glycol-lactic-radiance-renewal-mask
Just a little bit about this amazing brand first! Their MO is “clean to the skin” “clean to the planet”. What’s not to love there! All of their bottles are made with Ocean Plastic, tubes made from post-consumer-recycled plastic and designed for circular recycling. All packaging and products are always with the environment in mind.
This mask brightens, tightens, and gives my skin the most radiant glow. It contains all-natural fruit acids to help smooth the skins texture, and lighten the appearance of hyper pigmentation. When my skin is looking dull this is my go to! As with any product that has AHA make sure you are wearing your sunscreen!
10. A313 Vitimin A https://www.avibon.com/products/a313-pure-vitamin-a-50g?_pos=2&_sid=153f576cd&_ss=r
Vitamin A does wonders for the skin! A313 is the best over the counter, pharmacy grade French Vitamin A. It speeds up the healing process. Helps problematic skin conditions such as acne by helping to normalize oil production leaving the skin more balanced. Helps with pigmentation fine lines and wrinkles. Leaving the skin looking more firm and youthful. Once I started using Vitamin A I knew I would never go without it! Remember to wear your sunscreen!
Your skin is the largest organ on your body. We only get one so why not preserve, protect, and take care of the one we got! My skincare regimen is my me time. Those 5-10 minutes in the morning and night are like a trip to the spa. Just the escape I need from reality, especially during quarantine! Hope you try out some of these amazing products!
