It’s Mean Girls Day!
Mean Girls is honestly one of my most favorite movies ever. To honor of this special day, I want to share some of my fave pink products that I use on my skin. I get a lot of questions about my skincare routine. Most of you don’t know this, but when I was in high school, I had really bad acne. In addition, I was picked on because I was “flat chested” and skinny. This is one of the reasons I can relate to Mean Girls so much!
We all the know the line “On Wednesdays, we wear pink.” Well, here are some of the pink skincare products I use everyday.
Foreo LUNA Mini 2
I cleanse my skin twice a day–when I wake up, and before I go to bed. When I cleanse at night, I use my Foreo LUNA Mini 2. Not only does it feel good, but the massaging sonic technology promotes circulation to prevent wrinkles and cleanse your skin really well. My skin is left clean, fresh and radiant!
Foreo makes a ton of different beauty products that I will definitely be investing in. If you have a very specific skin type, I highly recommend the LUNA 2. Each color is designed for a specific skin type to help you get the most out of your self care routine.
PRO TIP: to use–
1. Rinse your face with warm water.
2. Apply your favorite cleanser to your face using your fingertips.
3. Turn on your Foreo LUNA Mini 2 and gently massage your cleanser into your skin. You can adjust the settings to make the sonic motion stronger or lighter.
4. No need to push too firmly–just move gently over your skin in circular motions remembering to show some love to your neck and chin areas.
Fenty Beauty Match Stix
Oh, child! Let me tell you how this Fenty Beauty Match Stix in “Rum” makes me feel–like a bronze queen who spends all her days on the beach drinking from a coconut! This is a highlighter stick and it stays on all day. Not only does this apply really smoothly, it catches the light at every single angle. This product comes in 10 slay-ready shades and you can use it as a highlight, a blush and even as a lipstick topper!
PRO TIP: the only advice I have for you, is to blend. This product blends SO easily. I’m by no means a makeup expert, but if you don’t blend, the color will show up like a line, and like you didn’t finish putting your makeup on (this is a rule for ALL makeup–not just this one).
For my everyday moisturizing cream, I use Clinique’s Moisture Surge Overnight Mask. Daytime, or night time–I use this moisturizer. I have combination skin so this works great for me. This cream is lightweight and gives me a soft glow without looking like I dipped my face in cooking oil. It really gets deep into the skin to maintain moisture.
Many people don’t realize how important it is to have a good toner. Using a toner is important for people with oily or acne prone skin. It’s also really great at removing any excess makeup you left behind during your cleanse. Toners also restore PH balance. We have really acidic skin and just being out in the environment forces our it to work into overdrive to maintain its’ health. Having a good toner really helps to maintain that healthy PH level.
PRO TIP: choose a toner that has aloe, witch hazel, rose water or any other natural ingredients that are beneficial for your skin type. Read the labels and learn about your skin. Always choose your products based on your skin type.
Healthy skin doesn’t just come from products. Although it is really important to invest in your skin, there are lots of other things you can do to support the work that your products put in:
- Drink lots of water
- NEVER sleep in makeup
- NEVER work out in makeup
- Don’t touch your face
- Don’t mess with blemishes
