Happy Friday, everyone!
It's been a hot minute here on the blog, but I'm back in action to talk about a topic that you all know is very important to me -- skincare.
Now that it's winter, it's more important than ever to keep your skin in check... but with it being the busiest time of the year at work and otherwise (anyone else feeling the Q4 crazies?!), it's becoming harder than ever. BUT, thanks to my amazing partner Clarisonic, I can now take care of my skin with or without my busy schedule -- whether I'm on the road on a work trip, at home or staying the night at the boyfriend's.
No matter where I am, I make sure to stick with my skincare regimen at all times -- if anything, having this little routine helps me feel like I know what I'm doing, even when my life is all over the place. Check out my nighttime routine below!
Step 1: Remove Makeup
There is NOTHING better than the feeling of taking your makeup off at the end of a long day. I typically use a micellar water with cotton rounds to take it off easily, and to ensure my skin is clean and ready for the rest of my skincare routine.
Step 2: Apply Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser
This Kiehl's cleanser is an absolute godsend. Once my face is clear of makeup, I take a small amount of the cleanser and spread it across my face, so that I can get to work with Clarisonic's Mia Prima Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush.
Step 3: Massage Into Skin w/ Clarisonic's Mia Prima Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush
This step is my absolute FAVORITE. It's so relaxing and almost therapeutic, cleansing away any remaining makeup, dirt & debris. And the best part? It's gentle enough that you can use it up to twice per day -- and if you'd like, you can even use it to remove your makeup (sometimes I even like taking it with me in the shower!). Once I'm done, I rinse my face with cold water to clear off the suds + close my pores.
Step 4: Moisturize!
With temps lingering around freezing here in NYC, moisturizer is more important than ever. Once I've completed the above, I apply my favorite night cream or moisturizer and roll it in with a quartz roller (both stored in my fridge!) to soak it in and give my skin a nice cooling effect.
And that's it! Want to give the gift of happy skin this year? This Clarisonic + Kiehl's duo is honestly the best gift for anyone on your list this holiday season, whether it's your Mom, your SO or your BFF.
