The Truth About Clear, Healthy Skin!
My skincare routine has changed quite a bit over the years, but at 31, I have this thing down! So I wanted to share all of my secrets with you, because it’s one of the most frequent questions I get!
Things that have affected my skin that are really common issues for many people:
These states of being, pills and food groups are all highly inflammatory. So although birth control is the answer for many doctors for acne, it’s throwing off your hormones, causing leaky gut and only suppressing what will likely be a horrific acne situation the minute you stop taking that pill.
Dairy makes me break out a ton along my jawline, which is very common for people with dairy issues. That’s also a place that’s common for hormone issues. So if yours are out of whack, you’ll likely see that acne pop up down there.
I do a really good job of managing the inflammation and working with my gurus to help minimize the issues I have which is occasional acne, oily or dry skin and wrinkles.
Your skin is your largest organ.
So whatever you are eating or drinking is going to show on your skin. So be mindful of that, and know that it makes a huge impact!
Let’s get to the non-toxic magic that keeps me clear, tight and “glowy” without fillers or injections because I’m doing all I can to avoid those forever. (Never say never, but as of right now, not for my bod!)
Immediately after working out, I wipe my face with the Beautycounter Rejuvenating toner pads. It’s important to get that dirt off your face before it has time to seal in your closed pores. This one small action has really improved my skin and the amount of breakouts I get.
The rest of the day, I keep everything super simple and clean from BEAUTYCOUNTER.
My go to’s:
The Nourishing Cream Cleanser
The Rejuvenating Radiance Serum
Dew Skin Moisturizing Coverage (It’s tinted!)
And at night, I’m obsessed with the Overnight Resurfacing Peel and Countermatch Recovery Sleeping Cream
I get facials every 3.5 weeks with Abbie at Goodformskin in West Hollywood. I notice if I wait that extra few days, my skin tends to get a little more clogged so I keep it between 21-24 days. I know that sounds like overkill, but it’s still just once a month. We do extractions, tea tree masks, oxygen, high frequency, cold dermal rollers and whichever light peel is suited for my skin at the time. And then every few, we will do microdermabrasion, which I love! Gets off all the dead skin and primes you for all the clean products.
I started seeing Ivan Pol who created “The Beauty Sandwich.” He uses a couple different tools to plump and firm your skin without Botox. I thought it was crazy until I did it and saw immediate results.
I found Ross at Next Health in West Hollywood and I LOVE him! He does a microneedling + PRP treatment that has worked absolute wonders. My melasma on my upper lip and under my eyes is reversing, and starts the day after treatment. I did 3 treatments and continue to go back as needed every few months or so. It tightened my skin, improved the texture and is making the melasma and sun damage disappear. YES!!!
I hope that doesn’t feel overwhelming to you. At the end of the day, I recommend hydration, sleep and a clean diet to make the most impact. If you want to do the treatments and try the things, then go for it! But it’s not going to do as much for you as the daily, consistent commitment to clean food and sound sleep.
Enjoy your masking.
