Let's Talk Skin
A few weeks ago, I was asked about the products that I use for a flawless look. To answer this question, it only made sense for me to start at the foundation of my makeup routine. I believe, healthy skin is the basis for my flawless makeup application.
And to begin talking skin, it all starts with Dr. Hauschka. About five years ago, my aunt, introduced my mom and me to Dr. Hauschka. A company specializing in natural, organic, and holistic skincare products using only high-quality ingredients from their very own biodynamic plant garden. That sounds pretty amazing huh? Well, it is! I have used Dr. Hauschka's products for years now, and I love it! My skin is very sensitive and many products that I've used in the past have caused my skin to breakout in hives and/or leave my skin feeling itchy or burning. Dr. Hauchka's cleanser was the first cleanser that I used that actually made my skin feel clean without the irritation, the way it should after a nice cleanse. Since then, I've included most of their products in my skincare routine. Why fix what works, right? And better yet, knowing exactly what is on my skin and where it was cultivated gives me a peace of mind. So here it is, my skincare routine:
Cleansing: I wash daily with Dr. Hauschka’s Cleansing Milk. It’s a gentle cleanser for my sensitive skin, and works as a make-up remover as well.
Toning: After using the cleansing milk, I then spritz Dr. Hauschka’s Clarifying Toner on my skin to balance the cleansing process.
Moisturizer: Then I apply Dr. Hauschka’s Moisturizing Day Cream on my skin. I use this product day and night.
If I have a blemish: I spot treat it with Aura Cacia’s 100% Pure Essential TEA TREE Oil. This oil has antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic, and antiviral healing properties great for blemishes.
Mask: I use Dr. Hauschka’s Cleansing Clay Mask to exfoliate and as a deep purifying cleanser weekly.
It's all about finding products that are good for your skin and will work for you. For me, a good skincare routine is what creates the most flawless makeup application. What is your skincare routine? Leave me a comment below, I’d love to know the products that you use!
