As I sit here in bed, a prisoner to shoulder surgery recovery, with time on my hand (yes, singular); I’ve decided that working on some blog entries is the most productive use of my free time! Bonus for you, I’m on painkillers so this could be pretty entertaining (thank the Lord for Grammarly and spellcheck).
Up first in my beauty repertoire is Summer Skin Essentials for Gorgeous Glowing Skin. Below, find out the product deets of my fave daily/weekly skincare products for glowing, hydrated skin. I have mentioned before that I am a beauty product junkie and skincare snob, so rest assured these are the BEST, tried and true products.
KARUNA HYDRATING+ FACE MASK ($8-$28) single-use, deep conditioning sheet masks to restore dry, dehydrated skin. This comforting mask is made out of 100 percent natural wood-pulp fiber, allowing pores to fully absorb essential nutrients and nourishing ingredients for ultimate hydration. The refreshing, oil-free formula contains a powerful blend of hyaluronic acid and peptides to renew, aloe vera and chamomile to hydrate, and Chinese licorice and vitamin B to detoxify. Research results: In a clinical test on 20 subjects, ages 18 to 60: – 40% increased hydration.
O.R.G. SKINCARE MINERAL PEEL FACE ($44) *if you were to purchase only ONE item from this post, this would be it* The first of its kind, O.R.G. Skincare Mineral Peel Face is a unique spray-on exfoliant that instantly removes dermal debris, dead skin, and pore impurities. Natural enzymes soften dead skin and stubborn makeup while natural extracts like milk thistle and licorice root brighten skin and diminish the appearance of dark spots, leaving skin radiant, clean, and healthy.
BRIGHTENING MASK($75) A unique brightening mask that helps to hydrate, revitalize, nourish and condition complexions. This sophisticated mask helps address the effects of glycation, such as mottled, yellowish and wrinkled skin, by combining our exclusive BMC Oligopeptide Anti-Aging Complex™ with stabilized vitamin C, glycolic and kojic acid to help brighten skin, refine its texture, improve its tone and elasticity and accelerate its natural cell turnover. Results are a fresher, more invigorated complexion with a remarkable youthful glow.
DAILY MICRO DERM SCRUB ($28) The daily micro derm scrub is a favorite stimulation product regardless of age or gender. This refreshing and invigorating sudsing citrus scrub will start your morning off great. Use the daily micro derm scrub in the shower on you face, neck, decollete, and arms for soft renewed skin. Botanically based, our daily micro derm scrub uses naturally renewable raw materials and never uses micro beads and is cruelty-free.
CLARISONIC MIA 2 WHITE SONIC SKIN CLEANSING SYSTEM ($169) Mia 2, enhanced with two speeds and the brand’s patented T-Timer which allows you to customize your skincare needs. Follow the T-Timer prompts while gently moving the brush head in small circular motions. CLARISONIC recommends spending 20 seconds on your forehead, 20 seconds on your nose and chin, 10 seconds on one cheek and 10 seconds on the other cheek. Its sonic technology gently yet deeply cleanses pores without abrasion or harsh chemicals, removing six times more makeup than manual cleansing so that products absorb better and your skin is more receptive to skincare ingredients. *I use my 3-1 Normal to Oily Daily Cleanser with the Radiance Brush head and my skin has never, ever looked better, no joke*
CLARISONIC RADIANCE BRUSH HEAD ($27) Radiance Brush Head provides a gentle yet effective cleanse with extra-soft and plush bristles and rounded bristle tips.
