The best feeling ever is coming home after a long day, getting out of those uncomfortable clothes and into the coziest of pjs then heading to the bathroom to remove all that makeup that has been on my face for 8+ hours. There is just NOTHING like the feeling of having clean refreshed skin after the end of a long day is there? Raise your hand if you agree! Up until a couple of years ago, I decided to put more effort into taking care of my skin. Going the whole nine yards, from making better choices when it came to skincare brands and even adding a few more products to my skincare routine. I'm not joking when I say I go all the way with skincare. I love my serums, eye creams, and facial oils but more than anything lately I've been LOVING my Clarisonic Mia 1. I've been using my Clarisonic Mia 1 for an entire month now (all of October) and I am so impressed by it. It gives the deepest clean without actually irritating my skin and gives a better clean then just using my hands and fingers alone to wash my face. My skin has been loving this new device too, I was getting hormonal breakouts (thanks to my pregnancy) all around my chin and once I began using my Clarisonic, they quickly diminished and almost vanished completely. Of course, I still get the occasional breakout but not as often as I did before, which makes me so happy! My skin feels so soft after using my Clarisonic and honestly, it makes getting to the skincare portion of my day so much more exciting! I love that it's gentle on my skin and always leaves it feeling oh so soft and smooth too! Want to know more about my step to step fall skincare routine? Keep scrolling!!
Step By Step Skincare Routine:
Step 1. Wearing makeup? First, remove with an oil cleanser // No makeup: swipe some micellar water onto the skin using a cotton round to get rid of any dirt or oil
Step 2. Face Wash: Step two is simple, use your Clarisonic Mia 1 and your favorite face wash to cleanse your skin. I've been using my Clarisonic Mia 1 daily, morning and night with the acne brush head and it's been amazing! Most people think that this gadget is used to exfoliate the skin and believe that using it daily is too harsh but on the contrary, it sonic cleanses for the deepest clean like I've never experienced before. It's gentle on the skin and has improved my skin texture considerably.
Step 3. Toner: Apply toner to a cotton round and swipe all over face to tone skin, this step ensures that every trace of dirt and makeup is removed.
Step 4. Eye cream: Make sure to press or tap eye cream around your orbital bone with your ring finger. Always be as gentle as possible during this step as the skin around your eyes is very delicate.
Step 5. Spot treatment: Have any breakouts that you just want to get rid of? Take this step to spot treat and get rid of those pesky little breakouts stat!
Step 6. Serum: Basically a thinner moisturizer, it contains great ingredients that your skin absorbs rather quickly.
Step 7. Moisturizer: This step locks in the serum and hydrates the skin all day/night long.
Step 8. Daytime: A good skincare routine always ends with some SPF because we want to make sure we're protected from the sun's harmful UV rays. // Nighttime: Two words, face oil. This step at the end of a long day is my all time favorite skincare step EVER! This gives my skin such a healthy glow. This step helps lock in hydration and helps you wake up to healthy beautiful skin in the morning! By the way, when choosing a face oil make sure to find on that is filled with good-for-your-skin ingredients.
