13 Steps to Clear Skin: My Skin Care Routine

Posted by

We all want smooth, luminous skin. Beautiful skin is associated with heath and it’s what we see before we apply makeup. Here is my skin care story…

After years of clear, even skin I came down with strep throat in my mid-thirties. A week later the cystic acne started. No matter what face cleanser I used, my skin would not clear up. I became desperate for answers. Over time I implemented a routine that has been healing from the inside out. Let me be clear that I am not talking about skin that gets the occasional pimple. My journey took me from four or more large, cystic, painful pimples at a time to clear skin.

13 Steps to Clear, Luminous Skin


Food

1.Each morning I drink 16 ounces of lemon or lime water (through a straw because I have sensitive teeth.)

2.Next I drink 16 ounces of organic celery juice (cut off the leaves because they are bitter when juiced).

3.I take 1000 mg of Ester C twice per day.

4.I alternate between cat’s claw and red clover tea.

5.For breakfast and mid-morning snack I drink a smoothie with plenty of fruit, coconut water and fresh Aloe vera.

6.Lunch includes a salad with fresh squeezed lemon or orange for dressing.

7.I drink water through the day to stay hydrated.

8.I avoid gluten, eggs, corn, pork, canola oil, soy and dairy.


Skin Care

Morning:

1.Wash face with vegan cleanser in shower (I use one made with charcoal).

2.For toner I use micellar water and apple cider vinegar.

3.I use vegan face cream enhanced with tea tree oil and Vitamin E.

Night:

1.Wash with vegan cleanser.

2.Follow up with toner and face cream.


How to apply foundation for flawless skin (even when it’s not)

Foundation is the best way to create the look of beautiful, even skin. Follow these steps for professional application.

1.Find the right color by testing the foundation on your jawline and checking in daylight. The color should disappear when blended.

2.Before applying foundation make sure your skin is clean and moisturized. Use primer if your makeup needs to last through a late night.

3.For full coverage foundation applying with a sponge is the best choice. For an airbrushed finish, blend foundation all over your face, starting in the middle and working your way out. Do not pile it on, less is usually more.

4.Apply concealer on top of foundation; the foundation will keep the concealer from creasing. Concealer should be a lightweight liquid one shade lighter than your skin. Be careful not to go too light or you will look fake. For best application, use a small, pointy brush to cover under-eye circles and any other spots not covered by foundation.

5.Lastly, apply luminous powder. Look for a translucent powder that increase glow while reducing shine. Using a powder brush, start at one side of your hairline, swoop down to your cheekbone, up to the bridge of your nose, across the other cheek then up again to reach the opposite hairline.
