The #1 most successful step for perfect skin.
DO NOT SLEEP IN YOUR MAKEUP!
I hate washing my face! I know that must sound so weird coming from a licensed esthetician but it’s true. I hate spending too much time in the bathroom. I hate splashing water on my face and feeling it run down my arms to my elbows and getting the collar of my shirt all wet and having cleanser in my hairline.
It’s such a messy process and I have yet to figure out how not to get water all over my sink counter and floor. And that’s in the morning. Don’t even get me started talking about my nighttime routine. Ugh! I just want to move from the couch and fall into bed, skipping the bathroom altogether. I used to do that. I would wake up my eyes feeling crusty, black mascara and tinted moisturizer staining my pillowcase. And oh, remember when we could go out and wear red lipstick? Once I woke up thinking I had been stabbed in the face.
Going to bed with makeup on can age your skin up to 7 times faster
“When you sleep in your makeup you are not giving your skin a chance to recover from [free radicals], which can lead to premature aging” -Dr. Eric Schweiger, HuffingtonPost
That Melissa is in the past. These days I want my skin to look and feel youthful and glowing. And I know you do too because 90% of my clients tell me they are dissatisfied with their skin. They hate their (check all that apply):
- skin tone
- skin texture
- age spots
- fine lines
- skin is pink
- skin is sensitive
- skin is dry
- skin is oily
- all the other things
If any (or all) of these things are your concern. The fix is simple… wash your face and put on your skincare products. If you want your skin to be gorgeous and glowing, cleansing is the most essential step. It provides your skin a fresh canvas allowing your day and evening products to work more efficiently. And consistency is key. But it takes time to develop habits.
In an effort to create long-lasting habits, it’s important to start with the parts that are manageable. But maybe you’re not sure what your skincare routine should look like. I totally understand, I am a visual learner too.
I made a video for you to follow along with demonstrating how fast and easy it is to cleanse your skin and apply all the products you may use to keep your skin hydrated, glowing, and breakout-free.
Even at my most exhausted I always wash my face before going to bed.
Everyone wants to get in and out of the bathroom as quickly as possible; I figured out a way to do my entire routine in 3 minutes. In this video, I show you how easy and fast your skincare can be. I will give you the hacks and tricks to simplify your routine and still achieve results from your products.
The only thing required from you is the desire for youthful glowing skin.
I hope you enjoy the video, let me know in the comments if it helps.
