Daily Regimen

Daily care regimens vary greatly, but simply having one is immensely important for healthy skin! Regimens should depend on one’s skin type, product preferences, and time and monetary constraints. After lots of product tests and trial-and-errors, I’ve finally found a daily regimen that’s quick, easy, affordable, and great for my skin type!*

My current regiment utilizes Mary Kay products. You can find the skincare packages for normal, dry, and oily skin, as well as other Mary Kay signature products, by clicking here.

  • Morning:
    • Step 1– Remove both face and eye make-up entirely. In the shower or at the sink, wet face and apply a generous layer of the ‘botanical effects’ cleanser for normal skin. Massage gently across entire face.
    • Step 2– Wet the brush attached to the ‘skinvigorate’ cleansing tool. After powering on the tool, gently allow the brush to massage entire face for about 1 minute, spreading time evenly across chin, cheeks, and forehead.
    • Step 3– Rinse face and gently pat dry. Rinse brush on the ‘skinvigorate’ tool and dry tool completely.
    • Step 4– Apply a generous layer of the ‘botanical effects’ hydrating formula (moisturizer) for normal skin.
  • Evening:
    • Step 1– Remove both face and eye make-up entirely. In the shower or at the sink, wet face and apply a generous layer of the ‘botanical effects’ exfoliating mask for normal skin. (This product can be used as an exfoliator in the shower/at the sink as well as a dry mask**). Massage gently to allow exfoliating beads to remove dead skin. Rinse thoroughly.
    • Step 2– Apply a generous layer of the ‘botanical effects’ cleanser for normal skin. Massage gently across entire face.
    • Step 3– Wet the brush attached to the ‘skinvigorate’ cleansing tool. After powering on the tool, gently allow the brush to massage entire face for about one minute, again spending about 15-20 seconds on each of your major facial areas.
    • Step 4– Rinse face and gently pat dry. Rinse brunch on the ‘skinvigorate’ tool and dry completely.
    • Step 5– Spray a small amount of the ‘botanical effects’ freshener for normal skin onto a cotton ball. Gently massage face.
    • Step 6– Apply a generous layer of the ‘botanical effects’ hydrating formula (moisturizer) for normal skin.

That’s it! In total, the regimen takes about 10 minutes. Only 10 minutes out of your entire day for clear, healthy skin?! I’ll take it. Happy skincaring!

*Daily regimens should vary depending on personal skin types. Consult a dermatologist if you have difficulty identifying your specific type.*

**Exfoliating products should be used with caution. Depending on your skin sensitivity, you may want to exfoliate more or less often. Those with normal skin types can exfoliate once per day, while those with more sensitive skin types should exfoliate 2-3 times per week. Consult your dermatologist if you have questions about appropriate exfoliating practices.**
