Happy Tuesday Beautiful!
I’ve spent the last three weeks introducing you all to one of my favorite natural skincare lines, Alchimie Forever, which I am now selling on ceciliawongskincare.com. I have to say that I have received an overwhelmingly positive response to the three products I am carrying, the Gentle Refining Scrub, the Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask and the Tightening Eye Gel. Each of these has a specific duty to perform in your spring skincare routine. Because I have spent the past few weeks touting the benefits of these lovely new products, today I wanted to write about the order of your spring skincare routine. Clients often ask me about which products should be used when and how to properly layer some of my best-selling products. Here I have laid out an easy to follow skincare regimen that is gentle enough to be used daily but effective enough that you’ll see results:
In addition to this fabulous daily routine that I suggest you follow, there are a couple of products that I recommend you add in to your weekly routine. These products are powerful and help you to achieve the glowing skin of your dreams, however, it is because of their efficient nature that I advise you to limit their use to once or twice a week in order to avoid doing damage to your skin. Here are the two products I suggest you incorporate weekly:
During the colder months of the year, it is essential to avoid over exfoliated, which tends to dry out already dehydrated skin. However, now that spring has sprung, I recommend adding a scrub to your weekly routine.I cannot stress enough that using a gently abrasive scrub daily is too much for most people’s skin.I love using Alchimie Forever’s Gentle Refining Scrub weekly. Due to the synergies between cranberry beads, jojoba pearls, and papaya enzyme, this scrub is able to effectively exfoliate the skin, both mechanically and enzymatically. Remember that Gentle Refining Scrub can be used in two totally different ways: as a scrub and as a mask. For instructions on how to do so, see my article about the scrub. Finally, be sure to use this product in the evening prior to the daily routine prescribed above.
Adding a mask in to your weekly routine is a great way to pamper yourself and give yourself an at-home spa treatment. I personally love to make a ritual out of my DIY treatment by applying my mask right before a bath laced with essential oils like lavender and chamomile. That way, while the mask does its work on my skin, my body and mind are able to relax and rejuvenate, while also getting a dose of aromatherapy. Currently, I’m using Alchimie Forever’s Kantic Brightening Moisture Mask for my spa ritual, due to it being packed with natural botanicals to soothe, protect, and brighten dull skin. As I discussed a couple weeks ago, this mask harnesses the power of blueberries (the same ingredient used in my powerful Black Currant Serum) to help make your skin glow.Just like the scrub, use this mask in the evening before the daily routine, but be sure to do this on a different night than when you are planning on using the scrub.
