While makeup is fun and can really enhance your natural beauty, I believe that taking care of your skin is the foundation to good makeup! Think of your skin being a canvas-- if you have a canvas that had not been taken cared for properly, your paints (makeup) won't look good on it! Today I'm excited to share some amazing Bioré charcoal products with you that have helped my skin to feel great and look great. I found these products at my local Target, and have been incorporating them into my beauty routine!
My nightly beauty routine is nothing fancy-- I take my makeup off (usually with makeup wipes), then I wash my face. Lately I've been using Bioré® Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser. Justin has also been using it, and we love the way it feels on our faces! It has a bit of a soothing effect, and makes our faces feel cool and clean. You can tell by the photo above that we've been using the cleanser frequently, since it's not all the way full anymore. It's a big deal for me to find a good facial cleanser because I have really sensitive skin. There are certain face washes that totally irritate and dry my skin out! For example, I took this cleanser to my parents' house when I visited a week ago and was too lazy to take it into the shower to wash my face. I ended using some other brand's face wash that was in the shower, and the next day my skin was dry, patchy, and red! And to make it worse, when this happens it always takes a week to heal. Ugh! This happens with certain cleansers, but the charcoal cleanser from Bioré is so gentle that my face had no problem switching to this wash! Win win.
Next, I make sure to moisturize my face. I've always had really dry skin, so moisturizing is a key part of my routine. Aaaaand that's about it with my nightly beauty routine. Yep, I'm boring. The thing is, I don't feel like I have to do much more, especially since using the new cleanser. I haven't had any bad breakouts since I've started using it! The natural charcoal in the cleanser is known for its ability to draw out and trap deep-down impurities. It is also infused with Japanese (!) Skin Purifying Technology. I love how my skin feels tingly smooth after using it! It is gentle enough for everyday use, and makes my skin feel amazing every time I wash with it.
makeup wipes are so quick and easy to use.
I also love incorporating "special beauty routines" every week to every other week to really treat my skin. The Bioré® Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strip is a new product that unclogs pores and draws out excess oil for the deepest clean. It keeps oil at bay for 24 hours. These strips also made my skin feel tingly and cool, which is one of the best feelings on my face, in my opinion!
I also love using a mask every other week or so. I recently tried out the Bioré® Self Heating One Minute Mask and can honestly say that it is my favorite mask I have ever used!! I like to call it a spa in a packet. This mask purifies pores 2.5x better than a basic mask. The unique formula heats on contact to open pores and removes pore-clogging dirt and oil. I was shocked at how warm it got the minute I touched the formula with my hand. It felt amazing on my face-- as if I were getting a facial at the spa! All it takes is one minute while most competitive masks take ten minutes to set. I loved this and will be buying more in the future! If you take away anything from my post today, make it be TRY THE SELF HEATING MASKS out! I am obsessed with how good it felt!!
AHHH. Scary. But it felt oh so good. #noRAGRETS! ;)
^With how awesome my skin has been feeling, I feel confident enough to post a no makeup, no touched up photo on my public blog. As a matter of fact, I let my hair air dry in this photo as well. Being natural never felt so great.
