My at-home routine for healthy, glowing skin year-round with Aprilskin
As a full-time corporate worker and a part time traveler, my life is constantly on the go. My week days tend to be long and busy which is why I always make time on the weekends for a little self-care, starting with my skin!
My skin tends to be on the drier side and is even worse in the colder temps. I also have very sensitive skin and am prone to rosacea which can be driven by diet, stress levels and environmental factors. I have cycled through various skincare regimens and I’m so happy I found the Aprilskin Calendula Line! This is the perfect regimen for a blemish free complexion and it’s so simple that even the busiest person can incorporate this into their routine. Enjoy these easy steps for glowing, more youthful looking skin.
Step 1: Calendula Peel Off Mask
Chicago winters can be brutal so the first and most important step of my skincare routine is the calendula peel-off mask. This mask removes dirt, dead skin and other impurities that your skin picks up throughout the day. You can use your fingers or the plastic applicator brush to apply generously all over your face. Let the mask dry for 30 minutes for best results! This mask is made from calendula flower extract so not only does it feel great, but it smells great too! Nothing feels quite as satisfying as peeling this mask off your face and revealing softer, smoother skin underneath!
Step 2: Calendula Peeling Pad
After my skin is completely clean from the peel-off mask, I use the calendula peeling pad all over my face. The purpose of the peeling pad is to pick up any residual impurities left behind after the peel-off mask. Plus, I can get in those hard to reach places like underneath the jaw line where I’m prone to breakouts. The peeling pads are made from calendula and lavender flower so not only do they pair perfectly with the peel-off mask but they’re gentle on my sensitive skin. You can even use these everyday as part of your daily washing routine! After this step my face is feeling completely cleansed and moisturized.
Step 3: Carrot Blemish Serum
Of course, no skincare routine is complete without a finishing serum! The carrot blemish serum is made from carrot water, carrot seed oil and carrot proteins so it’s gentle on your face just like the rest of the Aprilskin lineup. This serum contains zero sulfates, parabens or artificial fragrances and helps to reduce oil levels, whiteheads and blackheads. Seriously, this serum is the whole package and is the perfect way to wrap up my usual regimen.
