Today I wanted to show you guys what I usually do every other week to keep my skin looking smooth and youthful. Yes, I am quite confident about my skin that I can go out without foundation or powder and feel like I'm worth a million bucks. Haha, I'm not that cocky it's just that I don't like the feeling of a weighed down face so I try harder on not having to conceal my face. Honestly, good skin don't blossom overnight, you have to maintain it on a daily base and I've been doing it for the past 12 years! Of course, I'm not perfect and I do have some slightly larger pores and freckles but it's really not that obvious unless you stare really close to my face. (whoops just spilled my secret...)
Step 1: Clean face with cleanser
I wrote a review about my current favorite cleanser by Origins so if you guys would like to check it out please take a look at http://trouvailly.blogspot.com/2012/05/origins-checks-and-balances-face-wash.html
You guys do not have to use the exact one. You could always use your favorite cleanser.
Step 2: Remove old & dead skin cell on face.
There's actually a lot of similar products out in the Asian cosmetic market but this is one of my favorite because it works really well and the bottle has a lot more product then companies with similar product. This whole bottle only cost me $20! You can also use it on your body!
Step 3: Open up your pores
Here's a link to the product in case you guys want to check it out:
There's actually a buy one get one 50% off promo going out so if you guys are interested then you can check it out.
Step 4: Cleaning out blackheads!
Consistency of this product is very thick and you have to quickly apply on face before it dries!
Step 5: Manually remove stubborn blackhead
Step 6: Shrink your pores!
This is one of my all time favorite mask product that works really well to help shrink pore while giving you a clean, smooth, and refresh face all for $6-$7. Since I have just opened up my pore I would need something to help minimize them so this is the perfect product to get the work done. I usually take a little break in between this step and the previous one because I like to let my skin relax before putting stuff on it.
This make is very cooling when you put it on your face and the texture is very clay like so you would need to use a cloth to remove this product. Remember to wash your face with cold water afterwards!
Alright now! I am finally done with my biweekly mask routine. Hope you guys find it helpful and you should give it a try as it has done miracles for my skin. Good luck!
