Get amazing looking skin in just one week – your complete routine to achieve visibly younger looking skin in just seven days. I don’t know about you ladies, but I for one am really suffering from these constant weather fluctuations! Here at the derma e® Southern California office, it’s 80 degrees one day, 65 degrees the next day, and super windy, which makes the air incredibly dry. I’m not complaining though, as I have relatives in Boston and Chicago who have to fight tooth and nail just to get the ice off their car windshields! If you’re tired of searching for products that will offer salvation for your poor, dry skin, search no further! In the span of seven days, I went from having dry, red, puffy, flaky, patchy skin to having dewy, hydrated, incredibly soft skin. How you ask?! Don’t fret my friend! I will walk you through, step-by-step, what you need to use to transform your skin in just one week. So get your printer ready, because you’re gonna want to tape this plan to your bathroom mirror!
Day One Morning Cleanse and tone with the Soothing Cleanser and Toner. I recommend this duo for all skin types, especially when you’re going through a soothing and hydrating skin-type journey such as this. Soothing Serum. This lightweight treatment is highly nourishing and restorative, and it helps combat visible redness, irritation, and puffiness. I love the way this product feels going on. It’s very slippery and lightweight, and it just glides over the skin. Apply a generous amount to the face and neck. Age-Defying Eye Crème. This little eye crème packs some serious punch! It contains two powerhouse antioxidants that help fight free radical aging while conditioning and hydrating the delicate skin underneath the eye area. Apply a pea-sized amount to the entire eye area. Age-Defying Moisturizer with SPF . Just like the eye crème, this transformative moisturizer is mega-antioxidant rich. Its pinky/orange hue comes from an ingredient called Axtaxanthin, the same ingredient that gives flamingos and lobster their trademark color! Apply to the face and neck and follow with your regular makeup routine.
Evening Soothing Cleanser and Toner Soothing Serum Age-Defying Eye Crème Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin A & Green Tea Advanced Crème. No other crème has transformed my skin as much as this one product! Rich in Retinyl Palmitate, a gentle form of Vitamin A, this product helped improve my skin texture almost overnight, and made it incredibly soft the next morning. Skin, Hair and Nail Oil. This is the key product that will unveil that inner glow that every woman wants! Rich in Vitamin E and Fatty Acids from Organic Argan Oil, this fragrance-free oil goes a long way to help soften and moisturize your skin. I use a few drops on my entire face every night and have never found anything that has gotten rid of my flakiness so quickly. A true miracle in my eyes.
Exfoliate Use the Microdermabrasion Scrub every other day. This may seem a bit more than you’re used to, but the goal this week is to achieve complete skin rejuvenation, and you can’t get that luminescent glow with any dead skin sticking around! My favorite tip when using this product is to use it at the end of a shower. I massage it into my skin for about 2 minutes and rinse it off. Your skin by this point is nice and soft, and the scrub can gently remove impurities and dead skin cells much easier and with less effort. After I get out of the shower, I immediately put on a serum to lock in moisture. So there you have it. Your complete 7-day skin transformation plan! If you have existing derma e® products, such as a favorite eye crème or scrub, feel free to swap those with my recommendations. The key here is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, and then exfoliate!!
One last thought…Having beautiful skin is something to be proud of, but beautiful doesn’t have to mean perfect. I’ve seen many girls with acne scars, sun spots, freckles and wrinkles who have gorgeous skin! I’ve learned that the women who don’t fight their skin have the most ageless looking skin. They have learned what works for them and embrace their beautiful imperfections. Good luck! Remember, you are all beautiful! Stay luminous! Kate
