origins overnight mask - this is amazing for dryer climates and during winter
the perfect exfoliator - this is gentle enough to use 3-4x a week - eminence stone crop oxygenating fizzofoliant

3-4 nights per week i apply a prescription strength (i saw a dermatologist for this when i was 24 yrs old) retin-a to my entire face
BELIEVE IT OR NOT I’D NEVER HAD A FACIAL UP UNTIL THE END OF 2018. I USED TO WORK FOR A TANNING SALON WAY BACK IN THE DAY, AND SINCE I’M TURNING 33 THIS YEAR, I WANTED TO GET A HEAD START ON SLOUGHING AWAY AS MUCH SUN DAMAGE AS POSSIBLE, SO I STARTED WITH A MICRODERM AND FELL IN LOVE, THIS IS WHAT I DO ON A REGULAR BASIS NOW:
professional microdermabrasion facial 1-2x a month
hydration facial in-between microdermabrasions - so 3 facials total per month
if you are in the denver area, i swear by the service with jennifer at botanica wellness sanctuary
if you are in the madison area, I swear by the service with sam at rz & company
IN ADDITION TO THE TOPICAL PRODUCTS & PROFESSIONAL SERVICES, THE BELOW ARE PART OF MY ROUTINE AS WELL:
lots of sleep ( I average 8-9 hours of sleep every single night - SOMETIMES I SLEEP 10-11 HOURS) - this is thanks to an all-natural vegan beauty powder that puts me right to sleeP; WAKE UP BEAUTIFUL BY PACIFICA BEAUTY.
