Since you all see my face on a daily basis and have asked multiple times about the products I use on my face, I thought a post dedicated to this specific topic would provide better information than a 15 second insta-story.
Firstly, I will tell you, I don't have perfect skin. It's very sensitive and finicky. Just last week it was like lizard skin, peeling off my face, wrinkly, dry, and super sensitive. So it's always a work in progress regardless of how it appears on social media. While I do not filter my stories, lighting and makeup can cover a lot.
Secondly, I honestly believe what you put in your mouth has a tremendous reflection on the look and feel of your skin. Good products are important but so is good nutrition!
So with that said, let's just dive into the details. I will list everything with links in the order I use them starting with my AM routine.Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides $43.00 20oz
I have this on auto-ship and use it religiously in my coffee EVERY MORNING. One scoop per cup. You don't even taste it and it's 20g of collagen in every serving. Collagen helps promote glowing, vibrant skin while increasing elasticity.
Daily Wash by Jordan and Petersen Skincare $38.00 6oz
I use this morning and night as my facial cleanser. It's mild but leaves my face squeaky clean without striping my face. I have also used their Super Wash which is also great. It's a little stronger than the Daily Wash but is still a great face wash.
Tip: Always wash your face twice. This removes all of "the day" off of your face and gives a really clean slate for your products to do their work.
Clarity Toner by Jordan and Petersen Skincare $45.00 6oz
I use this morning and night after my facial cleanser. I spray it directly on my face, neck, and chest and let it air dry for several seconds. It's mild, extremely refreshing, and contains healing and anti-bacterial benefits.
Since I am not loyal to nor sold on a specific eye cream product there is no tag for this; however, I use an eye cream every day just because. I would love to know if you have one you love.
100%L-Asorbic Acid Powder (a.ka. Vitamin C) by The Ordinary $5.80 20g
Ok, NO, that is not a typo! These products are really that inexpensive. I recently learned about this company/product line from my friend @kathfit (sneak over and give her a follow. She's a life coach, fitness coach, and all around cool chic) and I LOVE these two products. I wholeheartedly believe these two products have been a game changer for my skin.
I use this combo morning and night. Put a tiny scoop (scooper included in the jar) of the Vitamin C and a few drops of the Acid in the palm of your hand and mix with your finger until it's smooth. Apply to your face. It will tingle a little bit. That's magic happening!
Tip: Let this sit on your face for a minute. Brush your teeth or something to give it time to soak in.
Here is where my routine changes a bit from day to night.
In the am:Hyaluronic Acid 2% by The Ordinary $6.80 30ml (1oz)
This is a hydration mega booster. I only use this in the am before I apply my moisturizer. Just a few drops will do your whole face, neck, and chest.
Another great option is Active Hydration Serum by Rodan and Fields.
Redefine AM by Rodan and Fields $78.00 30ml (1 oz)
I don't have a link for this moisturizer; however, I would be happy to put you in contact with my friend and rep Elizabeth if you don't have a rep. Again, this is only in the AM and applied to my whole face.
the MAX Stem Cell Neck Lift by Image $86.00 6oz
I use this morning and night on my chest and neck. Always apply in an upward motion. Helps brighten and tighten your skin.
Mineral UV Filters SPF 30 with Antioxidants by The Ordinary $9.80 50ml(1.7oz)
Last AM step is sunscreen. EVERY DAY. If you are wondering what the sun does to your skin, go look at your patio furniture you left out all year. I know, it's brutal. I have used several and love Skin Ceuticals Sport UV Defense, SkinMedica Environmental Defense, but honestly this is a great one at a fraction of the cost. Apply to your face, neck, and chest.
This begins after you cleanse, tone, and use the Vitamin C/Ferulic Acid mix.Intensive Repair Oil by Jordan and Petersen Skincare $85.00 1oz
Radiant Glow Oil by Jordan and Petersen Skincare $85.00 1oz
100% Organice Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil $9.80 30ml(1oz)
I use ONE of the three oils above every night. In no particular order and sometimes I will use the same for several days and then switch to one of the others. I apply to my whole face, neck, and chest.
Repairing Cream by Jordan and Petersen Skincare $98.00 1.7oz
Final step of my PM routine and I LOVE this product. I apply to my whole face, neck, and chest. Just a reminder, to follow this with the MAX product on your neck and chest in the PM as well.
Additionally, I use a "scrub" about three times a week. Although this product is labeled as a Daily Cleansing Mask, it has the characteristics of a scrub. I put it on in the shower and wash off at the end of my shower. So I leave it on for 7-10 minutes depending.
Daily Cleansing Mask by Rodan and Fields $39.00 4.2oz
I have three go-to masks that I use, well, honestly not as often as I should. I use one or two of them maybe every other week or so. I am trying to get better and be more consistent with my masks. But the three I love are:
Detoxifying Mask by Younique $49 50ml (1.7oz)
Apparently this has been renamed to You-ology Perfecting Mask
You will need to order this through a rep and I can put you in contact with my friend and rep Jolene if you do not have one. This is a bubbly charcoal mask I use directly after wash and then apply the J&P Radiant Mask for a double dose. It really leaves my skin soft and silky and I love the bubbly characteristic of this charcoal mask as opposed to a drying, crackle mask.
Radiant Mask by Jordan and Petersen Skincare $62.00 2oz
An awesome Papaya Enzyme mask. I love this one after the Detoxifying Mask above. You can also put this on at night and leave it on if you feel like you need an extra shot of hydration.
Radiance Mask by Rodan & Fields Reverse $54.00 50ml (1.7oz)
Elizabeth just introduced me to this one and I LOVE it. It's a great mask that also leaves your skin silky smooth. It smells good. It's golden, and you get to look like an Oscar award!!
PHEW!! I know that was a lot. It doesn't feel like a lot once you get into the routine. You should also know, I didn't buy all of this at one time. It's been a long process of finding what I love and what works for my skin and then an occasional new item when I get bored.
I hope this was helpful. Please watch for our IGTV video as I walk through the steps above coming in a day or so.xo
