Keeping Clear: Skin Care While Traveling

Hello loves!

Since I will be traveling a lot over the next couple weeks, I am very cautious with my skin and how I care for it. Being in airports and big cities can always make my complexion a little irritated, so I make sure to exfoliate every night and never go to bed with an inch of makeup on. I like to switch up my skincare regimen every couple months. This month I am using very little product and I have been wearing less makeup so that my pores stay clear. See below my travel skincare routine and how I stay glowing from city to city! XOXimage

Image Skincare: Total Resurfacing Masque ~ I cannot live without this all-in-one masque/exfoliator in my life! It has really kept my pores clean and gets rid of all impurities. I like to exfoliate with this every night to take my makeup off. Some mornings I will apply it as a masque and leave it on for 20min. It is a stronger scrub and tingled quite a bit on the skin.

Natura Bisse: Diamond White Matte Sunscreen ~ I have been pretty oily on this trip due to all the climate changes, so I have been skipping the moisturizer and going straight to my favourite sunscreen at the moment, Natura Bisse. This line was formed out of Barcelona, and I had the chance while I was there last week of meeting with one of the owners and had a tour of one of their amazing spa’s. I received some of their new products to try and will be doing s review soon. But this sunscreen is a must, it is not oily, adds wonderful moisture to the skin and smells divine! This is serious luxury when it comes to SPF!

Motives Perfecting Primer ~ to add a little bit more of a “matte” look to my skin after all the exfoliating and hydrating, I like to add a small amount of this lovely Motives primer. It fills in any lines/pores and leaves my skin fresh and ready for my makeup application!


In Home Spa: Moisture Facial

Have you ever had the best facial in your entire life and wish you could do it every month but cant because of the cost? Well now you can bring that relaxing facial to the heart of your home with just a few products. Keeping up on your skincare routine is super important, especially when it comes to cleaning out your pores. With these great products and a few tips you can have pure skin all year long!

  • First, start off by cleansing your face with the Fresh Soy Cleanser and some luke warm water. This is a wonderful cleanser for any skin type. Rich in amino acids, the soy proteins promote moisture retention, elasticity, and firmness. Rosewater balances and tones the skin. It is fragrance-free and soap-free, and infused with calming cucumber extract, yumm! 
  • Next, turn on your portable Steamer. While it is heating, soak your towels in a bowl of warm/hot water. For some aroma therapy you can add a couple drops of lavender into the water. {If you do not have a steamer, boil  some water until it steams and place in a bowl, cover with a towel so steam stays in. When you are about to steam in your next step keep face 7 inches away from water and soak it in.}
  • When your steam is ready, apply your Suki Exfoliator evenly to the skin and lightly rub in circles into the skin for about a minute. Let the exfoliator soak into the pores underneath the steamer for 10 minutes. This will allow your pores to open up and get prepared for the extractions of any blackheads.  The Natural sugar crystals in this exfoliant will slough off dead skin to reduce fine lines and hyperpigmentation as they smooth skin’s surface. Rice flour extract stimulates circulation and chamomile extract calms inflammation and cools redness. Great for all skin types as well. 
  • Remove the exfoliator with your luke warm towel. You are now ready to remove any blackheads on the nose and any whiteheads. With two pieces of gauze or tissues, lightly squeeze out any imperfections from the skin. This is the correct and healthiest way to remove impurities from the skin.

  • After all of your extractions, you can calm the skin with a mask or a facial oil massage. I like to use Josie Marans Argan oil. In light, circular motions massage the oil around the eyes, cheekbones, jaw and then full face. Don’t worry about this oil clogging your pores because it won’t, This 100% Pure Argan Oil is a legendary oil that’s rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, and grown organically in Morocco. With its multitasking benefits, Argan Oil can be used for many areas including hydrating and nourishing skin, as a daily moisturizer and a skin treatment for any facial.
  • Finish off your relaxing facial with an anti-aging serum. Ole Henricksens Collagen Serum is an oil-free serum that works like a food for the skin and it contains vitamins for the face. The powered vitamin C compounds help even out fine lines as well as wrinkles and put off further breakdown. This serum is loaded with antioxidants to battle with ecological attackers and wetness binding ingredients to keep the skin fed and sheltered.
  • There you have it, a purifying and hydrating at home facial! Best to do at night before bed!

Being an Aesthetician has taught me so much about skincare, especially the importance to take care of it as much as you can while you are younger. You don’t have to use the most expensive products but making sure to take off your makeup every night, using a toner, moisturizer and some type of anti-aging product will do wonders. I will soon be posting about my daily skin routines, so stay tuned! 
In the mean time, what are your favorite skin care products?

Lots of love!
