Happy New Year!
With a fresh new year upon us, we got to thinking about all of the ways we can all look and feel our best in 2019! We are big believers of dermaplaning at home (that’s why we say #FirstYouFlash), so we devised an essential 5-step guide to take your skin from fuzzy to fabulous in a snap.
Our regimen also includes some of our most treasured vanity favorites guaranteed to quench and soothe your skin!
So let’s get ready to exfoliate and reveal our best skin in 2019!
The first step to revealing glowing skin begins with DERMAFLASH 2.0 LUXE. Designed for women of all ages, all skin types, and all ethnicities—our award-winning at-home dermaplaning device gently rids the skin of dead skin and stubborn all-over facial hair. DERMAFLASH has become a tried and true dead skin exfoliator amongst beauty editors around the globe because it rids the skin of bacteria clogging debris and pesky facial fuzz that can give a muddy appearance to our makeup (especially in the drab winter months.)
Beauty Bonus: DERMAFLASH 2.0 LUXE helps you remove unwanted facial hair painlessly at home while allowing your skin to properly absorb the vital hydrating nutrients of your serums and creams. Oh, and flashing let’s you say goodbye to heavy winter makeup, too! We consider it the gift that keeps on giving.
If you aren’t familiar with Lisa Eldridge’s ultra popular facial massage video, then get acquainted right now! Just watching it alone puts us in a relaxed state. Following a facial massage protocol is a great way to wind down for the evening and alleviate facial fatigue. Try implementing our night oil choice below with your massage and/or use a face roller. There are several facial rollers out on the market but we’re really loving Herbivore’s Rose Quartz Facial Roller as of late. Soothe stress and de-puff by promoting lymphatic drainage before going to sleep, or while catching up on Netflix.
Be good to your skin by applying a facial oil that’s designed to soothe, heal, and reveal better skin like Sunday Riley’s Luna Sleeping Night Oil. This beauty-breaking retinol oil firms and plumps the skin to improve the appearance of wrinkles and redness from dusk to dawn. We love how Sunday Riley combines botanicals with retinol to make the application of this sensual oil a truly transformative experience. The technology on this is also amazing as a blue botanical base acts as an indicator to reveal when the retinol has been properly delivered to the deepest layer of your skin. Keep massaging the oil onto your skin until it becomes sheer. Beauty Bonus: This oil works for combination, oily and sensitive skin.
If further hydration is desired (we like to overload on hydration during the winter), try Dermalogica’s Sound Sleep Cocoon. The name alone brings on thoughts of the perfect slumber. This gel-to-cream formula uses motion-activated aromatherapy hydration technology to soothe you to sleep and provide a rich veil of hydration using vitamin C so you wake up with a fresh glow. We love the honest beauty philosophy of the Dermalogica brand and how this at-home treatment absorbs into our skin and transforms it overnight.
We love using a good mist before bed to seal in moisture and always keep one on our nightstand to freshen up first thing in the morning. We’ve tried many facial mists, but our favorite is still Caudalie’s Grape Water. We like the fine mist on this one and love that it truly refreshes day or night. Not to mention, you can use it over your makeup and it won’t disrupt your look. Beauty bonus: This mist is quite large in size, totally affordable, and is certified clean.
Be sure to implement these five easy to steps in the near year for glowing skin.
Cheers to radiance and health in 2019, Flash Squad!
