Fresh Skin with Drunk Elephant
With the lifestyle that I lead my skin gets very little breaks so I take my skincare very seriously! I tend to try products I feel will help me keep my skin looking it’s best based on my needs and the season!
My love for skincare is influenced by my obsession with having #glasskin and learning the practice of applying the steps of the KOREAN beauty routine became more than a hobby but a lifestyle! During the winter months I follow these steps religiously but with summer and having less time I changed my routine and included the following products:
There is not a day or night when I dare to skip my steps and double to triple cleansing is just the beginning!
You might find it a bit intimidating, time consuming or expensive to follow such a routine but trust me it’s totally life changing!
Why I love using Drunk Elephant Slaai™ ?
I always start with a cleaning balm to break down my makeup as gentle as possible. I wear brow gels, lash fibers everyday and matte lipsticks on occasion and this method helps my skin release the products without stripping moisture and oils as well and me having to aggressively wipe the products off my face! This innovative cleansing balm is formulated with clean antioxidant fruit extracts and African Oils that help nourish the skin while cleansing.
I follow with a Cantaloupe Jelly Cleanser because double cleaning is just a rule I must follow and this particular cleanser is formulated to remove all traces of makeup, excess oil, pollution and any other grime from the day. Being a city girl this is a must! It is also free of SLS, fragrance and essential oils, Beste™ No. 9 is totally non-irritating, non-sensitizing and appropriate for every skin type!
After drying my skin I follow with C-Firma™ A super-potent vitamin C day serum packed with a powerful antioxidant complex, essential nutrients, and fruit enzymes, all working together to firm and brighten the appearance of skin, while improving the signs of photoaging. I am particularly excited about the anti-aging properties and dark spot reducing benefits!
At night I use a completely different serum for I seek hydration to help my skin replenish as I sleep. B-Hydra™ which can be used during the day as well, is a ultra-hydrating serum replenishes the complexion and improves the look of skin tone and texture.
I never skip my eye-cream! Knock on wood I’m still crows feet free! At the moment I’m using C-Tango™ Multivitamin Eye Cream is rich and restorative, featuring a brightening combination of eight peptides, five forms of vitamin C and cucumber extract for firmer, stronger-looking skin around the eye area. This formula is gentle enough for AM and PM use!
During the day I use a hydrating to tinted moisturizer but at night I’m using Lala Retro™ which is a multi-faceted rescue cream that provides replenishing barrier support by reinforcing skin's acid mantle and defending against the effects of everyday stressors. Sounds amazing right?
