Lauren Ashtyn's favorite skincare essentials
Lets start out by me being upfront and honest... I am SO picky when it comes to skincare or makeup! These products are all things I have learned and researched on over the years. I am NOT sponsored by any of these companies however I would love to be because I love their products so much and I never promote anything unless I absolutely love it! (After all I do have a reputation to uphold and promoting things you don’t love feels dishonest to me) Most of you don’t know but I had severe acne 8th grade through high school and it was so depressing. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere most of the time because I was so embarrassed and didn’t want to be made fun of. I’m so blessed to have the skin I have now! The biggest difference is the products I’m using all used together!! I’ve always been really good about washing my face morning and night but what I didn’t realize is that when I have makeup on I need to use cleanser to clean my makeup off then wash my face again to get into my pores and actually clean my skin! Doing this with the correct cleanser has been a game changer! Plus using all products that get all the dead skin layers off so my moisturizers can actually penetrate to the max into my skin! I hope this helps you guys out too! As soon as you use these products you feel an immediate difference in the way your skin can breathe! I would love your feedback if you try one of these products!
Here are my skincare essentials! I have put them in order of how I use them every morning and night! I use every product morning and night except the Daily skin p eel I only use at night. Also keep in mind once your done applying the products to your face and neck wipe the excess on the top of your hands! I do this with every step.
Cleanser (I use the deep)
I use this product once to get all the makeup or oils off my skin then rinse with water and then I cleanse again to clean out all of my pores. I usually cleanse for 45 seconds each time.
Daily skin peel
I use this product every single night! This product is a total game changer in the industry in my opinion. You have access to a peel on your skin that truly works without being overpowering it will give you that instant glow! A patented two-step anti-aging AHA/BHA peel pad pre-dosed with seven acids to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, pores, and shine.It has one cloth that you use until the wipe is dry and then let it sit on your skin for two minutes. Following the first wipe there is a step two wipe that you use until this one gets dry. Then you will follow with next step. (Always avoid eye area with any type of skin peels)
Tonic glow toner
This effective, skin-resurfacing toner will exfoliate and brighten your complexion, while being gentle enough to use daily. By stimulating the skin to naturally exfoliate, lactic acid and willow bark extract work together to smooth, tone and help reduce the pore size, while azelaic acid precursor will brighten and help to even out skin tone for the perfect glow. I always put a couple of drops into the palm of my hand and then pat it into my skin. I do not like to use a cotton ball like most people because I feel that it always soaks up and wastes too much product. Make sure to avoid the eye area with this product.
This product contains PITERA™: A bio-ingredient derived from yeast fermentation that resembles your skin's Natural Moisturizing Factors; contains over 50 micro-nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and organic acids to condition skin's natural functions. An iconic essence with 90 percent PITERA, this “miracle water” softens, visibly smooths, reduces the appearance of pores, evens skin tone, and enhances radiance. Again I always put a couple of drops into the palm of my hand and then pat it into my skin. I do not like to use a cotton ball like most people because I feel that it always soaks up and wastes too much product. (I do put this under my eyes)
Acid Charcoal Serum
A universal serum that uses GLAMGLOW’s six acid blend and charcoal to instantly plump fine lines, fight dullness, and exfoliate dry surface cells. I always use one pump into my hand and then pat into the skin gently avoiding the eye area. This product gives an instant glow to your skin!
Intensive hydration serum
Offering long-lasting hydration, this serum adds freshness, luminosity and radiance to the skin. White Rose Stem Cells and flower acids work to smooth and soften the skin, resulting in an even, glowing complexion. This product feels so hydrating but never feels greasy to the skin! This product is amazing for all skin types! I apply two pumps and gently rub all over my face, eye area, and neck.
Rose face cream
I mainly use this product on my neck, under eye area, and my eyelids. Nourishing, moisturising, soothing and protective, this delicate face cream replenishes the skin on a daily basis. Enjoy its soft texture coupled with the delicious fragrance of fresh roses. This product smells AMAZING!
Rose Glow Booster CC Serum
This product is a GAME CHANGER! You can totally get your glow on with this product! I use 3-4 pumps! (yes I know my routine is excessive lol) Brightening face primer. Color correction. Lights up skin. Regenerating and hydrating benefits of rosehip butter. This Glow Booster CC Serum is a party skin savior that color corrects and preps the skin to create a flawless canvas. Infused with rosehip butter, moonstone extract and gemstone pearls, this limited-edition gold-rose version of the iconic Brightening CC Serum evens out and instantly brightens the skin to look positively glowing for the party season. Easily buildable. Lightweight serum texture. The softness of rosehip butter regenerates skin cells, helps hydrate and strengthens the skin’s protective barrier with its antioxidant action. The mystery of moonstone extracts and gemstone pearlsboosts natural radiance with a beautiful metallic light-reflecting glow while revitalizing, soothing and offering anti-aging benefits. Skin looks instantly brighter and positively glowing. The universal shade flatters all skin types and tones.
DRINK TONS OF WATER! I try to drink a gallon of water per day. You always want to make sure you drink at least half of your weight in oz of water per day. Yes I know water is boring but it is a game changer when it comes to skin!
