You know how “those” mornings go. The mornings where you look in the mirror, and your skin looks dry or oily and has lost a little of yesterday’s vibrancy. You’ve tried every product under the sun, but nothing seems to wake up your skin in the morning.
It took a while to find the perfect skin care routine for all skin types, but we've cracked the code of the perfect skin care routine you should be doing.
You might be horribly disappointed at how simple this is, and that’s because a great skin care routine doesn’t have to be complicated!
Mornings are always jam packed with very few minutes to spare, so this routine is impactful, quick, and full of results!
Step One: Washing Away Impurities
Start with the Advanced Purifying Cleanser. We always use this Cleanser with a wash cloth, but you can use it with a Clarisonic brush as well.
You just need a dime-sized pour onto the palm of your hand. Rub it in your hands for about 4 seconds. The Advanced Purifying Cleanser foams up beautifully. The Cleanser is a very strong cleanser with salicylic acid, lactic acid, tea tree oil to help with inflammation and B vitamins.
The key is to apply it on your face just below your eye lids and your forehead. With a wash cloth, wash away the Cleanser with a gentle scrub. When you do dry off, pat dry. Rubbing your skin vigorously with a wash cloth decreases your chances of retaining moisture.
Step Two: Combating Fine Lines and Wrinkles
The next product we use is the Advanced Correcting Serum for the face and the neck area. The retinol within the Serum helps with fine lines and wrinkles. Apply two pumps of this Serum to the face and neck for 20 seconds.
The Serum is a multi-use and multitasking product that can be used for women and men all skin types. It’s packed with retinol, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, ferulic acid, and a natural lightening agent called Illuminotex. The Visha Skin Care team of scientists created Illuminotex to help lighten dark spots and the dark circles under the eyes. Results typically take about 10 weeks.
Here’s a secret: When you are putting the Serum on your neck, apply it with an upward motion so you don’t create laxity or a loosening of the skin tissue on the neck.
Step Three: Awakening Your Eyes
After the Serum, start applying the Bright Eye Booster underneath the eyes and around the lips. It’s designed with caffeine and hyaluronic acid for a jolt of energy to the skin.
In July, when you purchase the Bright Eye Booster, you get a FREE travel-size Advanced Correcting Serum to boost your morning routine, using code FREESERUM17 at checkout.
Here’s another secret: lightly tap the eye cream around your eye instead of smearing it. The reason you tap it in is so you don’t create laxity, or loosen the skin tissue around the eyes. By tapping under the eyes and beneath the brow, you are awakening your face with the multitasking power of hyaluronic acid, which is super moisturizing. It’s not only used to just tighten bags under your eyes, but it can also be used around the mouth.
Step Four: Final Touches
This one is simple: Chapstick and sunscreen! After applying a layer of Chapstick, put on a sunscreen of SPF 30 and Advanced Skin Care Bright Eye Booster before putting on makeup.
At nighttime do the same thing, except you will need to remove eye shadow, concealer, and mascara. For a quick and easy clean, use a gauze dabbed in baby oil.
