The key to beautiful, healthy-looking skin? Maintaining a proper skincare regimen.
Our skin is constantly exposed to dirt, bacteria and other pollutants. Therefore, it’s extremely important to cleanse your skin twice daily—morning & night—regardless of whether or not you wearing makeup.
“What can I do to help my skin look and feel better?”
This is one of the most frequent questions I get asked by my clients. The key to beautiful, healthy-looking skin—whether or not you wear makeup—is maintaining a consistent, daily skincare regimen.
Creating a proper skincare regimen will vary from person-to-person. Each of us has different skintones, skin-types (i.e. dry, normal, combination, oily), as well as other factors that affects our skin’s health. Therefore, it’s very important to personalize a skincare routine based around your specific skin needs and concerns.
It's important to keep in mind that skincare isn’t magic—once you begin and maintain a proper skincare regimen, you must give your skin at least two weeks to notice any sort of improvement.
