Just yesterday I was questioned about my age. (Explains “Yes!” to self) All of my efforts to look young have paid off. I have always been dedicated to one goal and that’s flawless skin. I have a rigorous beauty routine, but believe me, it’s worth it! For instance, I use a toner before I apply a brightening serum in the morning, and use an eye contour lifting cream before my day cream. There are also different steps I take for my nightly routine because every night I apply a sleeping facial before bed. Keep reading for my step-by-step beauty routine for flawless skin.

My Morning Routine:
Every morning I wash my face using the Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser I received from the team at Elizabeth Arden. I really enjoy the soft micro-beads cleansing my skin, leaving my face feeling soft and glowing. The next thing I do is apply a toner with Cotton Pads. I use Humphrey’s Organic Witch Hazel. It’s a natural astringent that helps fight off acne and blemishes, reduces puffy eyes, tightens pores and locks in moisture.
Then I use the Skin Inc Brightening Serum I received from Glossybox. The Serum helps to improve skin tone, hydration and translucency. I use three drops right before I apply the LANCER Eye Contour Lifting Cream, followed by my Lift and Firm Day Lotion with SPF 30. I can apply makeup as usual, but I try not to wear makeup if I don’t have to. And if I am having trouble with blemishes I used Murad’s Acne Spot Fast Fix. This pimple product is awesome and works in as little as 1 day.
My Evening Routine
In the evening I follow the same steps using the Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser, Humphrey’s Organic Witch Hazel applied with Cotton Pads, then I use the Skin Inc Brightening Serum. What’s different is at night I use a Greek Yoghurt Advanced Nourishing Sleeping Facial by Korres. It feels luxurious going on and contains super-charged proteins that melt into skin to work overnight for intense and immediate moisture. I wake up with luminous and supple skin. It really is amazing!
Another thing I like to do is use Boscia’s Pore Purifying Black Strips in conjunction with its Luminizing Black Mask every other week. I use them together for a very clean feeling. The Pore Strips are great, they remove everything! But when I’m not using Boscia products I use the GLAMGLOW ‘Youthmud’ Tinglexfoliate Treatment. It’s a tingly mud mask that rejuvenates my skin, making me feel glam-tastic!
I have been doing this routine, using different products, for six months now. I am crazy about washing my face and hands, and try my darndest not to touch my face during the day. Water also plays a HUGE role in my skincare routine. I try to drink a liter of water before each meal, excluding greasy or sugary foods. I hope my recommendations help you achieve flawless skin, too. But remember, I am not an expert so please consult you dermatologist to see if these products are right for you.
