Washing my face is so much fun.
It’s time for a late night confession. Are you ready?
I’ve been in the beauty biz for 15 years now and I have never had this much fun washing my face. Literally, it’s fun and so satisfying lately to be seeing improvements in my skin even after using a good skincare regimen for over a decade now. So, what’s changed, you ask? Two things.
First- Double Cleansing
What the heck is “double cleansing?” Well, it’s cleansing your skin. Twice. Once with an oil, and then with a gentle cleanser. I’ve used Aloette’s Essential Cleansing Oil for years but have always just followed it with a toner. Not anymore. Last month, Ryan Christopher, a skincare expert who works closely with my brand posted a quick video about double cleansing the right way and I was so inspired. I have struggled with hormonal breakouts for years and I really think switching it up has made a world of difference in decongesting my pores and controlling inflammation that would pop up under the surface of my skin.
You start with an oil, cleanse your skin for 60 seconds- yup, a whole minute, massaging the skin on your face and neck with a non-synthetic oil cleanser to remove makeup and break up oil buildup on the surface of your skin. After that, you’ll follow with a good, lathering cleanser to remove any residue and deep clean your pores. 60 seconds with this one too. It’s self-care, y’all. You’re worth it.
This brings me to the second thing that has made my skincare routine more satisfying and just plain fun!
Introducing City Detox
Back in January I received a little vial of powder from the Aloette home office with instructions to wash my face with it and report back the results. You read that right- a powder…. to wash my face. I sprinkled a little in my palm, mixed it with a little water and rubbed my palms together to find the most luxurious foaming cleanser I had ever used! Seriously. Sprinkle, mix, foam- amazing. My skin has never felt so clean. It’s brighter, more even in tone, and those breakouts are nearly nonexistent.
City Detox contains enzymes to gently exfoliate and clay to detox and purge pores. This gets rid of not only makeup residue but dust, dirt, pollen, and other environmental pollutants that gather on your skin each day. The best part is, it only takes just a little bit. This bottle of cleanser will last you a WHILE so it’s an incredible value. More bang for your buck.
I am so excited that City Detox is now available to launch to the public! I’ve loved this cleanser for months and now so can you! City Detox launches on August 21st and it’s sure to be a big seller. You can swipe one up on my website found under the My Faves tab and add an Essential Cleansing Oil to your cart as well.
