We love to refresh our skin especially mid-week with our version of an “At-Home-Facial”. Check out our quick step-by-step guide, and the products currently on our menu.
Step 1: EXFOLIATE with Roccoco Botanicals Papaya Radiance Peel– While there are many ways to exfoliate, we love mixing it up and using ENZYMES for facial exfoliation once a week. Enzymes actually remove dead cells leaving the living ones unharmed- Ah, science! Green Papaya is a natural exfoliant that is gentle on sensitive skin, while still being effective, and leaving our face feeling SO soft!
Step 2: MASK with Clark’s Botanicals Intense Radiance Mask– Ok this mask is one of our favorite GO-TO’s. We use it twice a week, and we are amazed by the instant results every time. Through the unique blend of ingredients, this mask reduces redness and leaves our skin incredibly smooth, soft, and refreshed.
- Kaolin clay gently draws out impurities to instantly brighten without stripping moisture
- White Genepi combats free radicals
- Tripeptide Complex softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Jasmine + Algae Extract + Glycerin helps to retain moisture while smoothing and softening
While a pricier mask, the jar lasts and it’s WORTH EVERY PENNY!
Step 3: HYDRATE with Le Prunier Beauty Oil– The Power of Plum! This anti-aging, multi-purpose oil (great on face, body, or hair) balances, restores and refreshes. This deliciously scented plum oil is rich in antioxidants, protecting the skin and using Vitamin A & E to aid in healing and hydration. We love how lightweight this oil is on the skin and how quickly its absorbed, leaving a dewy finish sealing in moisture without clogging pores. Suffer from hyperpigmentation? Studies show Plum oil will actually brighten skin tone and reduce hyperpigmentation. We’ve definitely noticed our skin is brighter and feels more hydrated throughout the day when applied before moisturizer in the morning (BD Pro tip: a little goes a long way with the rich textured oil, usually 1 pea-sized drop is enough for us). This beauty oil is great for all skin types, especially acne prone & sensitive or allergy prone skin. Lastly, because it must be said, Plum Oil is a natural UV sunscreen booster..a total win all around!
Step 4: JADE ROLL with Tao Radiance– Seal in the goodness! First, let us say, we’re major fans of jade rolling. It improves circulation, releases facial tension, and decreases toxins to reduce puffiness and fine lines, all while stimulating collagen production. If this isn’t reason enough to pick up a jade roller, rolling also helps the skin seal in and absorb product on a deeper level. This roller specifically is real jade which is incredibly important to reap the benefits we just mentioned. BD pro tip: Keep your jade roller in the fridge! The extra cooling sensation will help to further depuff, refresh, calm and soothe!
