My Skincare Routine
As a makeup artist, I know the importance of taking care of my skin. I can never stress enough how important it is to have a clean and smooth canvas to work with; and I’m always sure to inform my clients of this as it directly reflects how their wedding photos will turn out. I learned the hard way on one of my first ever photo shoots that the camera picks up everything!
For the most part I like to keep my skincare routine fairly simple; I have a 9 month old so it needs to be through, gentle and fast. In the morning I use the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. I love this product so much as it gently exfoliates my skin without being harsh or overly abrasive. I tone (not pictured) with some steeped Japanese Green Tea that I got from a sushi stand at Yordale Mall. Green Tea has antioxidants in it that help the skin. Next, I apply my Pure + Simple Algae serum and then my sunblock; I use the Life Brand SPF 50. I think this is meant for the body but I use it on my face and haven’t had any issues. If I need to, I’ll use a light hydrating moisturizer from Simple Skincare.
In the evening, depending on how much makeup I’ve been wearing, I like to use the cleansing oil from Origins. If I’m wearing little to no makeup, I like to just use my Pure + Simple Sensitive Cleansing Milk, followed my my green tea toner, algae serum and overnight repair serum (this is an oil). If I need it, I use the Simple Skincare night cream. For spot treatment, I reach for the Origins Spot Remover.
The combination of these products leave my skin feeling healthy and soft. It takes me about 5 minutes to complete everything from start to finish, which is perfect when you’re short on time.
