Question of the Week: How many skincare products do you use every day?
I use way too many. And after my Korean Beauty Skincare Makeover yesterday at Sephora (get one, if you can!), maybe I'm not using enough? The K-Beauty routines have so many steps. But WOW. My face felt and looked amazing afterwards.
Here's what I'm doing for my skin, right now.
Cleansing: Erborian Solid Cleansing Oil - This one is new to me. I just started it today! It's an interesting concept and my skin feels amazing afterwards.
Essence: What's that? An essence is an extremely concentrated source of skincare applied after washing. Right now, I'm in LOVE with Kiehl's Iris Extracting Essence Treatment. It makes the skin look amazing in a fresh, radiant way. A little goes a long way. And never use a cotton ball! You'll waste it all!
Serum: MitoQ Serum is a new serum that claims to recharge our mitochondria batteries, slowing and reversing the signs of aging. Sounds impossible, right? I have no idea if the science is solid, but I'm testing both the serum and the supplement. According to the brand, MitoQ's patented technology delivers powerful antioxidant support to mitochondria, the power source of your skin's cells, restoring their vitality so they can fight the symptoms of aging. The results? Re-energised cells, and younger looking skin.
Face Firming: Lumeme Time Freeze Instant Lift V-Shaping Serum is like a bra for your face.
Moisturizer: Bosica Sake Balm uses fatty alcohols to hydrate the skin and plump fine lines and wrinkles. I just picked this up yesterday and it feels so good. SO. GOOD.
SPF: Kiehl's Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50 locks in your skincare and preps the skin for an amazing makeup application. Oh, and it stops sun damage.
I'm also trying out a slew of beauty tech and masks, but I'm under contract and can't speak about those things just yet. However, I tried this dentist office grade teeth whitener and got two shades lighter in about 30 minutes total. That rocked.
