In today’s fast-paced world we tend to get up and go, go, go. Downtime often doesn’t exist, which can make fitting in a consistent, healthy skincare routine tough. With the daily hustle and bustle, it’s not unusual for skin to become worn down and dull looking. That’s why it’s important, even when it seems you don’t have a minute to spare, to give your skin the attention it needs.
Step one to simplified skincare? Get organized! Having your go-to products in order is an easy way to breeze through your daily routine. Keep cleansers and exfoliators in the shower, and make those steps part of your morning shower. Separate morning products and evening products so they’re easy to find and you remember what to use. Keep a small bag in your purse with your favorite MyChelle mist, lip gloss and sunscreen.
After your morning cleansing, treat skin with your favorite serum—I recommend MyChelle Perfect C Serum as a daytime super serum. A potent 17% dose of clinically proven L-ascorbic acid helps to strengthen collagen and improve skin texture. L-ergothioneine boosts cellular energy and helps interrupt the stress reaction that destroys elastin. Buddleja plant stem cell protects against photo-damage and oxidative stress through antioxidant activity.
Follow serum with a layer of MyChelle natural sunscreen. For irresistibly coconut-scented, full-spectrum UVA/UVB sun defense that offers powerfully effective protection and is non-irritating to the eyes, try MyChelle Sun Shield Coconut SPF 28. Translucent zinc and titanium dioxide provide a safe alternative to harsh chemical sunscreens. The addition of soothing aloe and vitamin E help reduce signs of sun-induced irritation. Apply to the neck and décolleté too, areas we often miss. By following this simple yet effective routine you will have beautiful glowing skin in less than five minutes!
At the end of the day, make cleansing a priority. It helps to get into the habit of developing a night routine, so that even when you’re exhausted and ready to crawl into bed, you still take care of your skin. After washing away surface impurities that have accumulated on the skin throughout the day, grab the MyChelle Vitamin A Plus Serum. This skin-refining serum with nourishing antioxidants improves the texture and smoothness of rough, dull and congested skin. Retinol and naturally-derived Vit-A-Like™ work together to resurface skin, clearing pore blockage and minimizing the appearance of lines. Argan oil, naturally high in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, works to balance sebum production.
Finally, end your day by focusing on anti-aging and hydration. Apply Mychelle Supreme Polypeptide Cream loaded with Matrixyl® synthe’6™ which reduces wrinkle volume by 21% and wrinkle depth by 19% in eight weeks. Proteasyl® TP Pea Peptide is clinically proven to improve skin’s elasticity, increasing overall firmness by 35% in just six weeks. Rice peptides improve skin smoothness while Syn®-Coll Peptide triggers skin’s own reparative function to accelerate collagen production. This unique cream is a true two-for-one deal because you get a nutrient-dense moisturizer with treatment-like results and properties.
Now, get your beauty sleep! Because that’s nature’s truest beauty secret… a good night’s rest!
