I believe that however we start our day, that’s how the day will go.
That being said, it’s very important for me to drink something good and take a very good care of my face as a first thing in the morning (after brushing my teeth) :).
1. Exfoliating, and why is it that important?
Exfoliating removes the dead skin cells, which clog our face. This way fresh new cells below are uncovered and thanks to this, skin care products we use become more effective. Refine Bamboo & Green Tea Cleansing Scrub works perfectly for me and is great for all skin types, as well as mature and pre-maturely aging skin. I will go further and tell you that it’s the best exfoliator I’ve ever used – no joke! It is known as “microdermabrasion in a jar”. It, not only exfoliates, but also increases microcirculation and does what every proper exfoliation should do: leaves healthy and glowing skin, minimises pores, reduces breakouts and acne, hides wrinkles and allows super absorption of other products.
To make you more convinced that it does leave your skin (not only smooth, but) VERY smooth, I’ll tell you that after I used it for the first time, the next day when my hubby and I were still in bed, he touched my face to say “good morning my love” (as usual), but this time I heard: “Wow, love, your skin is so smooth” instead. I started laughing and said: “thank you, I’ll write about it” :).
I don’t use this scrub often, but only twice a week and put a very thin layer of it all over my face, so I’m sure it will last for me for some time.
2. After a good exfoliating, time for a good toner
I’ll be honest with you, I wasn’t using toner, because I was thinking that it’s unnecessary in my skincare routine. I couldn’t be more wrong. Did you know that toner shrinks pores, can prevent ingrown hair, refreshes skin and adds a layer of protection? The last part was the most interesting to me, because a toner can help close pores and tighten cell gaps, which actually prevents blackheads from appearing. Vibrant Complexion Corrective Toner balances, with its botanicals ingredients pH levels, which can get out of whack after cleansing.
Personally, I really like the smell of this toner, because it has a nice smell with an earthy undertone :).
Do I still need to tell you that now I don’t imagine my morning without a toner? 🙂
3. My favorite step: apply on my face this velvety cream
All the steps are very important for me in my morning routine. Nevertheless, the last one is the most pleasant for me. I have already written how important using of a moisturizer is before, so I won’t repeat myself :).
After all the cleansing, it’s a rewarding time for velvety smooth application of Timeless Age Defying Cream. My skin absorbs it so nicely that I can easily put my makeup on after (if it’s a “makeup on day”) and it doesn’t look bad (like after other moisturizers). If I don’t put makeup, my skin looks so glowy and is very soft. Right now (in summer), I just put this cream on and I’m ready to conquer the world :D.
The things I like about all the Skin and Senses products mentioned above is that the small amount goes a long way so all the money are very well spent in the long run. Their products are organic and vegan. Third thing, worth mentioning, is that I’ve been using these products for over a month now and I’ve noticed that my skin is firmer, brighter and much smoother, than it ever was, which is actually strange, because I’m getting older not younger, but I’ll take that :D.
