In my years of working as an esthetician, I found myself delivering the same advice for my clients no matter what the skin type. I even found myself giving this advice to clients that were seasoned in skin care so I thought I would share some of the most common tips here.
1. Exfoliation should be a weekly routine-
One of the issues I came across is a build up of clogged pores. One way to help prevent this is through regular exfoliation. A basic rule of thumb is one to two times per week, but the product you use will have instructions on usage. So many of my clients did not do this and I could tell during extraction time! This is especially important during this Covid time when we are wearing masks and bacteria build up is occurring.
2. Wash your face at night-
Many of my clients confessed that washing their skin at night was not happening! One of the most important reasons to wash your face is to remove the makeup/debris from the day. Our skin cells are rejuvenating at night so it is the best time to be applying your targeted skin care.
Even oily skin can be dehydrated. Keeping skin hydrated ensures the skin doesn't produce excess oil which can lead to breakouts. If you are oily use products that contain lightweight ingredients that deliver a high impact like hyaluronic acid. This will add water hydration and not heaviness from oil based products. If you are dry, use the oils and creams to nourish your skin.
Staying hydrated is important as it helps plump out skin making it an anti-aging tool!
Do you have a solid skin care routine? Do you exfoliate? I would love to hear in the comments below!
To put it “simply”, Jess’s Repair toner is just like my Amex. I never leave home without it. It’s perfect for a quick spray after a workout to cool and hydrate your skin. It’s also the first thing I put on my face when I wake up in the morning. It’s a must-have.
This is my second time purchasing the toner and I love it. Even if I do nothing else with my skin, I always use this to keep my skin hydrated, which is very much needed in the California sunshine. I am not a huge lavender fan so I was concerned at first that the smell could be off putting for me but it has a really delicate fragrance so I had nothing to worry about.
This toner is great for taking away my redness, and I love the smell!
The toner spray is so nice and refreshing. Super-fast shipping. I received my order the next day.
As an esthetician and skin care educator who has worked in almost every facet of this amazing industry, my journey began not only with a quest to heal and correct skin but to connect with people. I have spent my 15 year career as an esthetician in the treatment room in every type of spa, as well as a trainer for multiple luxury brands, where I have had the privilege of traveling all over the world.
