Back To Basics | Julie's Skincare Fundamentals August 31 2017
Whether you’re heading back to school or just getting back into the swing of a routine, brush up on your skincare basics with Julie’s 4 skincare rules to live by, the foundation of a daily ritual, and a guide to how much product you should be using.
Your personal experience with our line of skincare may differ, since everyone's skin is unique and routines need to be adjusted according to the season. For a more personalized skincare ritual, we recommend booking either a facial at our Skincare Clinic in Toronto, or scheduling a virtual video skin consultation with one of our expert holistic aestheticians.
The 4 rules to live by for glowing skin
#1 Sleep: One of the best things you can do for your skin. Aim for 8 hours a night.
#2 Drink plenty of water: to stay hydrated and keep your body happy and healthy. I also love herbal teas like red raspberry, oat straw, nettle, fennel, peppermint.
#3 Mindful eating: Digestion is key to healthy, beautiful, clear skin. Listen to your body and feed it what it needs. Make sure you are having at least one bowel movement daily.
#4 Don't pick anything: This is so hard but trust me, it works. The less you pick, the less scarring you have.
Daily skincare ritual
Cleanse nightly with our Moisturizing Oil Cleanser + Makeup Remover to remove all dirt and make-up. Massage cleanser into wet skin and remove with a damp face cloth.
Tone after cleansing and when your skin needs a pick-me-up with our Invigorating + Balancing Toner.
Moisturize! Hydrate and protect your skin morning and night. Julie always massages a face serum into her freshly washed, damp skin OR combine with water/toner in your palm before applying. Use AM or PM or both, whichever you feel work best for your skin.
Every morning when you apply your serum, Massage your face by following our Natural Facelift Ritual. This is Julie’s secret weapon to tone, smooth and detoxify with lasting results.
In the fall + spring she layers serum under our Nourishing + Revitalizing Moisturizer. In the winter, she layers it under Protecting + Restoring Face Balm.
For blemishes, apply our Clear Skin Advanced Spot Concentrate directly onto imperfections. One drop is all you need!
Exfoliate three times a week to rejuvenate your complexion and regenerate skin cells using our Regenerating Exfoliator + Resurfacing Mask.
Clarify your pores and draw out impurities once a week with our Detoxifying + Clarifying Clay Mask. Try a Superfood Mask: mix 1 tsp Clay Mask with 1 tsp honey + yogurt. Or try another one of our DIY mask recipes.
Every night tell your skin how much you love it!
