Kirstie Allen knows skin, so when we wanted some definitive do’s and don’ts for our daily beauty regimen, we knew just who to call.
Areas of congestion and blockage on problem skins generally match where their owners place their mucky paws. Do you sit with your hands resting on your jaw line? Do you touch or rub your face a lot? Not only will touching worsen problem skins, it will also drag and damage dryer skins.
If you are not cleansing correctly then anything that follows could be a waste of time. Stop worrying about expensive moisturizers and serums and get this bit sorted first. You need to cleanse twice and you need water, there are no short cuts and face wipes are a no. They are quick and easy but they will only dry and cause your skin to age while bringing no real benefits.
Dry your face with a clean tissue
Your bath towel has probably not been washed in a few days, so stop using it to dry your face. Use a fresh clean tissue after each and every cleanse and shower.
Use Organic Skincare
Suggesting to use Organic Skincare may not come as a surprise, however, there really is logic and science behind the products. If you haven’t tried any Pinks Boutique Luxury Organic Skincare yet then please do and feel the noticeable difference within the first few weeks.
Internal and External
Everyone runs to skincare products but so many skincare complaints begin on the inside, stress being a frequent and major factor. Taking time to learn about breathing, meditation, wellness may reap major skincare rewards when combined with the right products. Sleep and diet are crucial and I tell every skincare and facial client I ever meet they need high-quality high-level EPA fish oils and a good skin vitamin based supplement.
Don’t forget that products elsewhere on your body can affect your face.
If you struggle with sensitivity or reactions, rosacea etc you need to think of your body as a whole. My early career was entirely dominated by nail extensions and heavy chemicals. If you react to acrylic or UV cured gel it doesn’t react on your nails but on your face. This can be the same with anything from hair products to toothpaste. I have helped lots of clients with sore broken lips, rashes and irritation around their mouth and nose by changing toothpaste and removing sodium lauryl sulphate in the toothpaste. Leading dermatologists who have no interest in organic and natural at all are starting to get very worried by the increased number of facial skin reactions to UV cured gel polishes.
