Many people ask me what I do daily to take care of my skin. I think people assume it is a laborsome routine – especially when I list out the number of products. But it is quick and easy with all the right anti-aging products. I’m giving my skin everything it needs to help stimulate collagen and elastin production, maintain the results of my treatments longer, and protect my skin from sun damage. At New Image, we primarily carry Alastin Skincare and some select SkinMedica and Colorescience products. Right now, I’m exclusively using Alastin and Colorescience. So, here is a look at my regimen. If you’d like to watch a video of me talking through the products I use, you can see it here!
STEP 1 : Gentle Cleanser
This is a large tube that lasts a LONG time. All you need is a pea-sized drop on your fingers or a washcloth. I always start and end my day by cleansing my face. Never skip it! (Well, to be completely honest, I miss here and there.😉)
STEP 2: Regenerating Skin Nectar or Restorative Skin Complex
Depending on whether I am post-treatment, I change the one I use. At the time of this video, I had just gotten a Halo, so I used the Regenerating Skin Nectar but would typically use the Restorative Skin Complex. Skin Nectar is an excellent product for anyone post-treatment or with sensitive skin (i.e., acne, vascularities, inflammation, or any other kind of sensitivity) because it is gentle with three anti-inflammatory ingredients and TriHex peptide technology. TriHex cleans out old, broken down tissue that prevents new tissue growth while stimulating new collagen production. TriHex is the key to my anti-aging skincare routine. I use one pump am and pm on the top of my hand and dab it on my face with my fingertips using an upward motion. Anything I have left I use on my neck. Don’t forget your neck!
STEP 3: Restorative Eye Treatment
I use one pump am and pm applied to the top of my hand and, using my fingertips, apply under my eye, and eyelids. This is a great product to encourage elastin & collagen production around the eyes to reduce wrinkling as well as diminishing dark skin tone and brighten the area!
STEP 4: Ultra Nourishing Moisturizer
Many people are worried about moisturizer causing breakouts, but this is great for all skin types. All Alastin products are non-comedogenic (meaning they will not clog your pores). I use one pump am and pm applied all over my face.
STEP 5: Alastin HydraTint or Alastin Retinol .5
I always finish with HydraTint in the morning. This is a tinted SPF that is a pretty universal color and goes on sheer but still provides a nice finished look. And it has antioxidants, so it’s great protection for your skin. I use a little less than one pump. In my evening routine, I skip the HydraTint, of course, and use one pump of the Alastin Retinol .5
STEP 6: Makeup
After that, my brows, mascara, cheek color, and favorite Colorescience SPF Lip Shine. My Lip Shine is formulated to hold moisture in my lips, provide SPF protection (because you need it there too!), and give me a nice shimmery color that I like. I apply the Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush in SPF 50 throughout the day to know I’m always protected..
So that’s it! My anti-aging skincare routine! It usually only takes me a few minutes, and I am confident knowing that I’m giving my skin the best I can to age gracefully and prolong the results of my treatments!
