I use a gentle cleanser and washcloth. I don’t use a scrub, the washcloth is enough of a scrub for me.
I start with Oxygen Plasma, which, as explained to me by my very long time facialist and friend, Keli Stone-Urbano, “is a vital oxygen serum that transports volumes of oxygen into the tissue which stimulates collagen and elastin formation, combats fine lines, wrinkles, and plumps the skin”.
Then I use an alcohol free toner.
I follow with a very intensive peptide serum that is full of vitamins C, A, and E as well as antioxidants.
I mix the serum with a powerful moisturizer that’s also full of peptides, vitamins C, A, and E as well as antioxidants.
Then I use a rich eye cream that soothes, hydrates, firms and defines eye tissue, using high levels of retinol, hyaluronic acid, CoQ10, shea butter, algae extract, and essential fatty acids.
Then I use a moisturizing sunblock with broad spectrum protection.
This is my routine, AM and PM, minus the sunblock in the PM, obviously.
Adopting a really good skin care routine has been the best investment of my adult life. I’ve been seeing Keli for regular facials for about twelve years now. I also love micro needling, and I try to do that once a year at least. It’s very effective. I love how fresh it makes my skin feel. Ideally I prefer to go without make up when I’m not working, au natural is usually my go-to. With some help.
