Now that things are settling down from all the holiday cheer it's time for a skin refresh! If your days went anything like mine, where chocolate and candy were in constant rotation at work, and you couldn't stay away from the sweets whether baking for a holiday party or indulging in them, “no” was just not an option. Not to mention the drinks that were flowing and some nights of forgetting to remove all that festive makeup, (was that just me?). Let’s just say my skin does not love me right now!
What better way to start the new year than with some self-care? With a little TLC from some favorite OFRA skin savers, my skin, and yours too, can be renewed and refreshed just in time to knock out all those resolutions we made this year.
First things first, remove any makeup you’ve got on with the OFRA 2Phase Makeup Remover.
And to make sure all the dirt and grime is gone, cleanse with an appropriate skin-type cleanser. OFRA Foaming Kiwi Cleanser works great for all skin types.
Between 1-2 times a week, you’ll want to exfoliate. The OFRA Soft Pearl Peel works for everyone including the most sensitive skin types and is ideal for reducing pigmentation, removing dead skin cells, and eliminating blackheads.
For a good skin detox throw in a mask 1-2 times a week as well after exfoliating or alternate weeks. The Volcanic Clarifying Mask works wonders as it dries down from its clay base, absorbing excess oil, removing toxins and minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines while also maintaining moisturized skin.
After you’ve exfoliated and/or masked, using a toner like the OFRA Essential Toner will remove any excess product and correct the P.H. balance of the skin after contact with water.
Follow up with an appropriate serum. During the colder, drier seasons we recommend something more moisturizing but non-greasy like the OFRA B5 Moisturizing Serum.
Our eyes deserve special treatment, so next apply an eye cream like the OFRA Biotech Eye & Lip Cream and continue with a face moisturizer. A personal fave is the Advanced Vitamin A & C Cream with SPF 20 because even though it's not summer, we still need to be protected as the sun's UV rays are harsher when they reflect off of snow #funfact.
Last but not least, don’t forget to moisturize your lips! The OFRA Pure Vitamin E Lipstick is super hydrating and contains natural sunscreen.
Whether your New Year’s resolution is waking up earlier, or you have some other beauty goals in mind, we hope 2018 brings you nothing but positivity. It all starts with you! What you do today is what determines your tomorrow, so start with small goals, get into routines that work for you and keep slaying your skincare and makeup game all year long with OFRA!
