Step 1: Clean it!
Piling stuff on is one idea, but if your skin isn't clear and unclogged to be able to take in the goodies, there is nothing productive happening. That's why, like with everything, you need to make sure your skin is clean and ready to enjoy the good stuff you put on it. This time I used the Burt's Bees Peach and Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub because even if it cleans and scrubs everything, it is the sole cleanser that leaves my skin moisturized. This thing is amazing! The absolute perfect texture and if you check my Favorites post from yesterday, you will find the review there too.
Step 2: Mask it!
What I did was use the Origins Drink-Up Intensive Overnight Mask in the evening so my skin would be ready for the full treatment in the morning. You can also do this as a last step, if you do the whole process in the morning. Clean it,moisturize it, then slap this mask on in the evening for extra hydration.
Step 3: Serum Time!
If you don't use or don't feel the need to use a serum every day, this will be right up your alley, because having a serum on standby for dry situations like this is ideal. Right now, I don't use a serum on a daily basis (but I will come winter and frosty winds), but putting it on when your skin feels extra dry is a blessing. It prepares your skin for the moisturizer and locks in all the moisture of your skin. I really like the Melvita Orange Blossom Extraordinary Water in small quantities. This thing really gets the job done and you need the tiniest amount for it.
Step 4: Moisturize it!
I'm really loving Mango Butter right now, but just go with your favorite moisturizer at this point,to seal the rescuing deal. I find the mango butter to be doing a ton of good to my skin and it's so much more hydrating than the face oils I had been using. I don't think I'm going to be able to go back to just oils after this.
I can tell you that after that, my skin was feeling nice and puffy again.
