The last thing on your mind when you wake up or lay down to sleep is a complex, fifteen step, double cleansing skin care routine. At Pure Bliss Med Spa we wanted to provide an easy to follow step by step skin care routine to use as a foundation to your customized regiment. Let’s start from the top with the day time regiment! The goal during the day is to protect the skin from free radicals, the sun, and environmental pollution.
1.You want to begin the day with a blank canvas so we suggest starting with a cleanser! Say good morning to your pores! Wake yourself up with tepid water and a gentle cleanser.
2. Next up is antioxidant serums. At Pure Bliss Med Spa our customer favorites are from SkinCeuticals. The C.E. Ferulic is a daytime vitamin C that will deliver the most advanced environmental protection while also improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a harmonious combination of 15% pure vitamin C, 1% vitamin E, and .5% Ferulic acid that work together to block against atmospheric aging. The Phloretin CF with Ferulic acid is best for normal to oily skin types. The 2% Phloretin is derived from the bark of apple, pear, and grapefruit trees. This works synergistically with vitamin C to neutralize free radicals. Basically, everyone needs one or the other in their regiment.
3. Third is an eye cream. It is vital to apply eye cream twice a day starting in your early twenties. The skin underneath eyes is 1/10th the thickness of the rest of the skin on your body. It is a delicate area so be sure to apply gently with your ring finger in a patting motion and never tug or pull. Regular application of a great brightening and tightening eye cream will help to ensure the elasticity of the skin.
4. Moisturize, moisturize, and moisturize. Even the oiliest of our client can be paired with the perfect moisturizer for them. A tip is that you can apply this as a way to lock in all the benefits from your serums and eye creams. Leave your skin slightly damp while applying your choice of moisturizer. Think of it as a barrier to keep the good in and the bad out.
5. Finally! The grand finale is sunscreen! You’ll want to make sure that your sunscreen has Zinc Oxide in it. This will provide the utmost protection from UVA and UVB rays. A product that we love at Pure Bliss is the SkinMedica Essential Defense. With a total of 6.0% of Zinc Oxide it is lightweight and will not leave a white or grey cast on any skin tone. Paraben free, hypoallergenic, oil free, and fragrance free this is ideal for any skin type including sensitive. With the close of Summer and start of Autumn, Pure Bliss is offering this product for 20% off making it an affordable 30$.
The proper way to lay products is from thinnest formula to thickest. The idea behind this is that the serums and antioxidants are then able to penetrate the deepest they can without additional barriers. Not applying your regiment in the correct order could alter the potency and efficiency of the products you have invested in. Keep it simple with this five step daily sequence and stay tuned for our blog post for the night time regiment! Glowing, radiant skin is the result of an effective skin care regiment and allows for your natural beauty to shine through!
