How do I get my skin ready for date night?
Looking and feeling your best for date night and beyond is as simple as developing a regular and consistent skin care routine. Cleansing morning and night will ensure that dirt and debris is being removed from the skin. Exfoliating the skin regularly (2-3 times per week) will help to increase cellular turn-over and improve skin’s texture and tone. Feeding the skin nutrients through serums and creams will also help to improve the overall health of the skin. And remember to always finish off your daily routine with a good sun protection!
Now that you have a daily routine in place, let’s talk about preparing your skin for a night out on the town. Start with a good exfoliation session: Use the Fruit Fiesta Peel to renew a youthful glow and texture with Multi-Fruit Acids and 7% Lactic Acid. This potent Alpha-Hydroxy Acid blend smooths the look of wrinkles, and leaves skin feeling refreshed and invigorated. Removing dead skin cells will give you the perfect pick-me-up. Now hydrate the skin to plump up wrinkles and fine lines.
Next use the Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum to restore moisture with hydrating agents naturally found in healthy skin. Hyaluronic Acid binds water to the skin, improving suppleness and plumping fine lines. Sodium NaPCA and olive-derived Squalane prevent moisture loss as they smooth and soften skin.
Now apply the G2 Instant Firming Serum (one of actress Yvonne Strahovski’s must-have products!) She recently shared her beauty secrets with The New York Times and told them: “My morning routine is pretty basic and simple. I try to use natural products. I’m super conscious of not putting chemicals on my skin, like parabens and sulfates. I love MyChelle products. It’s this organic line that a friend, who is a makeup artist and facialist, introduced me to. I use the fruit and enzyme cleanser and then I moisturize with the pumpkin cream. They also have a couple of serums that I sort of go between, like this morning, I put on the G2 one, which is a firming serum.”
The G2 Instant Firming Serum is loaded with Phytonutrients and skin-smoothing Peptides, which begin working immediately to visibly improve firmness. Argireline™ Peptide is clinically proven to reduce wrinkle depth up to 27%. Fast-acting Instalift™, from Goji Berries, has been shown to dramatically increase skin firmness in only one hour. Fermented Pomegranate Extract, a super-antioxidant, refines skin texture as it fights free-radical damage.
Next, seal your serums into the skin by spritzing with the Fruit Enzyme Mist. Antioxidant Turmeric strengthens and Vitamin C-rich superfruit Mangosteen supports collagen to help skin maintain youthful-looking firmness and structure. This mist will replenish, repair and retain vital moisture for a refreshing, protecting, and soothing pick-me-up wherever you go.
Finish by applying the cream most suitable for your skin type and top everything off with sun protection (unless your date is in the evening, of course!)
