A couple of weeks ago I talked about the importance of a night time cleansing routine to enhance your complexion. However, if you want truly good skin, you will need to care for not only your face, but your neck twice a day. Yes – I know it sounds redundant! And one frequent question that comes up during skin care consultations is “Why twice a day? Isn’t a good cleanse at night enough?”
Surprisingly that answer is NO.
What most of us don’t realize is how we can pick up contaminants from pillowcases, especially if we sleep on our sides. We also tend to touch our faces with our hands and get natural oils on our faces from our hair. One more source of contaminants is the air around us. It’s extremely difficult to keep pollutants out of the house.
So unless you wash your pillowcase daily, cleanse your hands and hair immediately before going to bed – and purify your indoors completely – your face will need a morning cleanse. It may sound like a lot of work so I do one more thing…
…make it fun with a hairband that has rabbit ears!
Adding a little ‘silly’ makes this easier. This is my morning routine…
If I take a shower in the morning, I use Rice Water Bright cleanser. If I don’t shower that morning, I use belif Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser or Anew Micellar water. While drying, I floss my teeth (yes…I recently learned to floss before brushing!). Next, I apply Dr. Belmeur Cica Peptite Ampule and Isa Knox eye serum along with Isa Knox serum for my face. While that’s absorbing, I make my bed. Then I apply Isa Knox day cream. While that is absorbing, I brush my teeth and take care of any other chores that need to be done around the house. My last step is Anew Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty Defense SPF50 regardless of the weather forecast or how much time I will be spending indoors.
Dermatologists agree that if you sit near windows or in front of a computer screen, you are exposed to potentially skin-damaging light. I researched this after hearing about it from Avon trainings and now do it every day. (It has made a difference in my skin).
If you are looking to learn more about skin care or improve the quality of your skin, don’t hesitate to contact me to start that conversation. There is so much I love about being an Avon Independent Sales Representative. One reason is how often I am able to help people bring out their best face and neck possible!
P.S. I am also super excited that we will be introducing a clean and vegan line!! Yes, Farm RX is coming soon so I may make some changes. If so, I will let you know about those soon. So stay tuned!
