My “my skin feels like junk” evening routine
10 Things You May Not Know About Me
You know those days that for some reason your skin just doesn’t feel right? On this particular day I had gotten up early and applied my usual makeup, went to the salon to have my hair done, rushed home to freshen up, then went out for the afternoon and evening. By 7:45p, I wanted nothing more than to scrub my face clean of my makeup and let my skin rest.
I chose 3 masks from my linen closet and applied them on the following order, and only on particular areas of my face.
First up, I applied First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Intensive Peel to my chin, around my nose, and onto the inner parts of my cheeks, near my nose. This helped clear out any junk, absorbed some oil, and generally left those parts of my face “scrubbed clean” feeling. I don’t apply this anywhere that I don’t need it, which is basically anywhere my skin is already clear.
I rinsed my face well, pat it dry, and then applied fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask all over my skin. This feels so good on my skin, and it isn’t too heavy for those of you with oily skin. It looks strange, so consider yourself warned! There are tiny particles or oranges and other citrus fruits in the mask, which I think it so fun, but my husband definitely did a double take when I had it on the other night.
After about 10 minutes, I rinsed that off with warm water, and pat my face to dry.
Finally, after a few minutes to let my skin rest, I applied my beloved fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask* all over my face. I only applied a thin layer and actually left it on through the night. I know they make an overnight mask specifically for this purpose, but it works well to do it this way.
The next morning my skin felt amazingly soft and completely cleaned up.
*this mask was sent to me as a gift from fresh, with no strings attached. It’s very expensive and if that is out of your budget, I’d look into the Clinique Even Better Brightening Moisture Mask for another option that delivers great results!
