Today, for the first time ever, I am going to be discussing my skin care routine! I know I normally chat with y’all about clothes, fashion, and jewelry so this a little outside of my norm! However, I’ve received a couple questions about this topic over the past couple of months so I figured it was time to share! I am going to try to answer all the questions y’all have had and please let me know if you have any more.
Over the past year I have been trying to take better care of my skin. In my new years resolution post and the college letter I wrote to myself (blog post) I said, “I wish I took better care of my skin!” Now, with Enza Essentials, I am feeling better than ever about my skin, especially around my facial area! I started using the Complete Sustaining System regimenabout a month ago and have slowly started seeing great results! I am going to take you all through a step-by-step night time routine. This way you can see what products I use, how I apply them, and what areas they target.
Step 1: Sustaining Cleanser
This cleanser is a lightweight gel that lifts away the makeup and dirt from your skin. It helps maintain a natural level of moisture and softens the skin. I noticed after using this my skin is more smooth and feels very nourished.
Step 2: Fine Facial Polish
I use this product twice a week since it is a scrub. It contains rice bran that absorbs oil from your skin. The salicylic acid in the polish also helps exfoliate your pores. They say you can use this product as a mask but I haven’t yet! I bet it would be great to leave on a for a bit then scrub off!
Step 3: Cool Sustaining Toner
I highly recommend using a toner! This is a product that will help tone and texture your skin! It replenishes, brightens, and revitalizes your skin. I want smooth, blemish-free skin, so I use this constantly. I’ve noticed it helps balance my coloring, sun spots, and softens some scarring I have.
Step 4: Glycol Serum
The second to last steps helps offer a mild exfoliation. The serum includes aloe vera, vitamin A, and vitamin E. It works to refine your skin and hydrate it.
Step 5: Sustaining Glow Creme
I’ve heard so many myths about applying moisturizer to your skin after using a regimen. “Don’t use that it will clog your pores.” “The heavy lotion will just cause more breakouts.” I got to the point where I actually started listening to the reviews and my skin suffered. Ladies, it’s so important to use a creme in the morning and night. Your skin needs hydration! It’s important to find the right creme for your skin and apply it correctly.
I also have a morning routine that I use with the Enza Essential products. It consists of 4 steps (sustaining cleanser, cool sustaining toner, vitamin C serum, and advanced SPF protection). Applying the Vitamin C serum helps hydrate my skin and the SPF is a skin protector. My dermatologist once told me if their is any product I should apply in the morning it should be SPF. We never realize how damaging the sun can keep and what times we are exposed. Just driving down the road in your car can cause sun exposure and you probably don’t even realize it! My tip to y’all – wear the sunscreen!
You can shop the Enza Essential collections at their website, www.enza.com. When you receive your regimen you will also get a folder that contains everything you need to know! I found the product sheets and information very helpful! It shares what ingredients are in each product, the purpose of them, and the benefits you are receiving!
