I chase clear skin like I chase the donut food truck. Having the best skin possible is super important to me, as I’m sure it is for you too!
Weirdly enough, I’ve had way more skin issues in my 20s than I did in my high school years. Maybe that’s a blessing, because now I have the patience to experiment with different concoctions to find the best products and routines for my skin, and as of this moment, I think I’ve found it.
I’ve been using this routine now for several weeks and have been so happy with how my skin has been acting. In case you haven’t noticed yet, I use mostly Pixi, along with a lovely little Elizabeth Arden serum.
Let me take you through my skin care routine, which I follow morning and night…
Step 1: Cleanse
Keeping your skin clean is so important. Removing your makeup and the nastiness of the day from your pores will help keep the breakouts away.
First, splash your skin with warm water to open up those pores, and then work Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser into your skin. It’s a delicious recipe for clear skin packed with yummy ingredients like glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, and aloe vera.
Step 2: Mud mask
This step, you only want to do two or three times a week. Shmear the Pixi Glow Mud Mask all over you face, and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. The rich mask is loaded with minerals to draw out excess oil and impurities from your skin. You can see all of the crud it pulled out of my pores!
Step 3: Toner
Toner is a step that a lot of people feel is unnecessary, but I don’t think so at all. You need a toner, and let me tell you why. Toner helps to balance the PH level of your skin, meaning that, depending on your skin type, it’ll prompt your skin to produce either more or less oil on its own, whatever it needs.
Pixi Glow Tonic is the best toner I have EV-AR used. I don’t know how it does what it does, but it has reduced redness and breakouts in my skin more than any other product ever has. You have to try this one.
Step 4: Serum
Now we’re going to step away from Pixi for just a minute and move over to Elizabeth Arden SuperStart Serum.
I usually like to spend a little more on my serums because a great serum can be a super effective way to correct troublesome skin issues, and this one is designed to speed up the natural repairing and renewal process of your skin.
Think of it as getting a fresh, new layer of skin faster than you naturally would.
Step 5: Moisturize
My final step is to moisturize, and whether you skin is dry or oily, you must, must, must moisturize. During the day, before I put on my makeup, I use Pixi Glowtion Day Dew. It’s got a slight shimmer to it that gives a gorgeous glow, and it looks amazing under foundation.
And then at night I like to use something a little heavier duty, like CeraVe Moisturizing Skin Cream.
After these steps, you’ll be left with smooth, glowing skin! Give it a couple weeks, and you’ll start to see amazing things happen!
