I tie my hair back with one of these cool hair tie thingys. It doesn’t leave a ponytail bump or crease in my hair if I’ve just had a blow out and keeps me from getting product in my hair.
I wash my face. Most days I don’t really wear makeup. Just tinted sunscreen and some foundation powder. So a micellar based makeup wipe will do the trick. If I have been to an event or had a photo shoot that day, then I will use a microfiber face cloth and micellar water to get all my makeup off. Since I have eyelash extensions, I use a special foam cleanser that I get from my lash extension provider.
I go over my skin one more time with a glycolic acid cleansing pad with witch hazel (I keep these in my beauty fridge and they feel SO nice on the skin). I tend to get dark spots and also have larger pores on my nose and I feel like these wipes have helped with both of these issues. Plus I’m always shocked how there’s still some grime they take off even though I JUST washed my face.
The same brand also makes a stronger pad specifically for nighttime but so far I’ve been too much of a wimpy baby to try it, so if anyone orders it and has a great experience, let me know. I love the normal ones and my skin has not had anything but positive effects so it should only be extra amazing, right?
I kept hearing about Korean skin care products being the holy grail and I was dying to try some of this fountain of youth goodness for myself, but didn’t know where to start. Everyone was basically telling me that you could get all the benefits of the gazillion dollar skin creams for much less. I was intrigued, but totally intimidated. And then I read a BuzzFeed article that recommended a specific Korean brand with a super silly packaging design, but out of this world results. The price was reasonable enough for me to give it a try and not be bummed if it didn’t live up to they hype. Well ladies… it does.
So I use the Hell Pore Control hyaluronic acid serum very lightly as needed, mostly just under my eyes, between my eyebrows and a little on my chest- areas of the most concern for me. Then I apply the Elastic Retinol Cream all over my face (you don’t need very much). I smooth it in with my fingertips and hit the bed. Done.
