We recently returned from a trip to the Arizona desert after a week away. As a dry skin type, the extra dryness from the desert really did a number on my skin. Along with the climate difference, I also was eating foods I don't normally eat (hello pumpkin cheesecake) and sleep wasn't as good.
These are the fun facts that go along with travel many times. And it can take a toll on the skin. After a full day of getting laundry sorted and cleaning up I took a look at my skin and saw a dehydrated mess. I took some time to fix that and I am going to share just what I did here on this post. My skin is back to normal and glowing again, YES!
Step 1- Mask/exfoliate!
Step 2- Hair Mask
My hair was dry and needed a pick me up. I applied a hair mask for 10 minutes by Pattern Beauty.
Step 3- RED light!
I am a huge fan of the LED red light masks to stimulate collagen. My favorite is the Omnilux led therapy mask because they are the leaders in the science behind red light. I to use it to boost collagen.
Step 4- Eye Masks
My eye area needed a pick me up so I used our SMOOTH under eye masks for 10 minutes and it was just what I needed!
Step 5- GUA SHA
Facial gua sha helps lift and firm the skin, while helping product penetrate. I applied a generous amount of our REBOOT restorative oil and spent 5 minutes with my Gua Sha. If you want to see a short video on Gua Sha 101, click here.
