Besides using high-quality skincare, I’ve found that the best way to maintain my skin throughout the year is by getting mini facials. I like to try to get them during seasonal changes, when my skin always seems to experience a little turbulence. I live on the West Coast, where we experience four seasons and constantly shifting weather. Usually, when theres a change (even slightly) my skin is working in tandem and it causes me to need to switch up my products + routine accordingly.
Last Friday, I booked myself a facial at Project Skin, to get their ‘customized glow facial’. These can improve concerns like complexion, acne & blemishes, as well as skin tone + texture. They also help promote healthy cell turnover and improve fine lines, skin hydration, radiance and clarity, and are customized to your skin needs. Personalized to target blemish-prone skin, dehydration or irregular pigmentation – all without any downtime. It feels like hitting a reset button. Not to mention, my favorite parts: the heated blanket & shoulder massage, while we wait for the mask to set.
Lately, my biggest complaint is the redness & hyper-pigmentation I’m experiencing on my cheeks. It’s something I’ve always kind of dealt with, but has seemed more distinct lately. I completely ran out of my regular products, so part of my visit was to restock my skincare. Instead of just going with my usual ride-or-die Skinceutical favorites, I took the recommendations of my technician and brought home a few products that are new to me. Details below!
