Step 1 : exfoliation
Hi guys, today I want to share with you a step by step guide in my skin-care routine. As much as I love makeup and trying new makeup lunches, skincare is where my heart goes. It’s definitely something I’m being more interested as I’m getting older.
One of the first thing I’ve learned talking about skincare products is that you don’t have to splurge on expensive products and serums.
In these days we are definitely able to get the most important products for our skin at some amazing prices. The packaging maybe will be less fancy but at the end of the day you get what you pay for. And to me this will always be my number one priority.
The second most important thing that I’ve learned is that every step of your routine and even your make up application is useless unless you EXFOLIATE.
Exfoliate is the most important step in the process.
It allows you to create a new base so that all the products you put on top can be absorbed more efficiently.
Our skin purpose is to be a barrier, a strong and healthy barrier for everything that is outside, so everything we put on top is not supposed to make its way through every layers. That’s why exfoliate with and acid it’s not only important but necessarily for us. It allows us to remove the first layer of dead cells and epidermide that contributes to create the barrier.
Since this step is so important to me after many years of experiencing and trying so many different drugstore exfoliates I decided to splurge on this one.
I’ve already repurchased this product three times and I don’t think I’m going to stop buying it. It’s expensive but you actually need a really small amount of it, it effectve but still gentle on sensitive skin. I find it perfect for using it once a day or even twice when I’m having a bad time with my skin. I see instant results and I see how my skin needs it when I skip using it one day or two. To me it’s the most important step in my routine cause otherwise, everything I do after it it’s useless.
Anyway, enough rumble about this product, the next step is always an essence or a serum depending how bougie I’m feeling. But that is a chat for another day.
Hope you find this post some kind of interesting and I’ll see you in the next one! Love you a lots!
