Is great skin.
I’m no spring chicken anymore and two kids will take a toll on your look. Some things can be hidden with the wonders of stellar foundation matched with amazing cover-up but even then, there are no promises. Having a quality skin care routine is just like having a great exercise plan–both will ultimately make you look good in your clothes (or make up) but isn’t the ultimate goal to look good naked? Yes. Yes, it is.
As a little girl, I can still remember my mom reviewing the importance of a quality skin care regimen with me. She would jokingly say to make sure that I took care of my neck too as it would likely become the skin on my face–all jokes right? We hope so!
In addition to drinking 1,001 ounces of water a day, weekly at home spa treatments + a quality anti-aging cream (I know, black doesn’t crack but I’ve got some things mixed in here), there are 3 major ingredients in my routine.
Dr. Brandt Oxygen Facial
Flash Recovery Mask
I’ve been using masks on my skin for over 15 years and this is by far the coolest mask and takes the least amount of time to do its job. After hopping out the shower, I left my face damp and used 3 pumps to cover my entire face. Thirty seconds later my face was filled with foam and it was such a funny feeling! It takes 3-5 minutes to finish up before washing off. After about 3 minutes the foam starts to fade and then you rinse off. Boom. Done. Immediately following, my skin felt so soft and brightened. I can totally see why SHAPE named it Best of Beauty in 2015 for being Best Mask!
Dr. Brandt Xtend Your Youth
I’m not going to lie, when it comes to a face cream, I’m a bit of a snob. I used to use Clinique’s face cream and loved it because it was perfect through all the phases of my skin–from dry to oily to now combination. But this face cream? It gets 2 thumbs up from me. Like I said, I have combination skin so finding something that is both moisturizing but not too moisturizing is a challenge. This face cream left my skin looking smoother, rehydrated and ready to take on the day. Not surprisingly, this cream won ALLURE’s Best Anti-oxidant Anti-ager.
