Skin Prep: One Month Before the Big Day
If you want to set up a consistent, gentle exfoliating routine, before a special event, we would recommend starting at least a month in advance, and if possible, 2-3 months in advance. And always complement any exfoliation with barrier supporting ingredients like ceramides, lipids, and humectants.
Start using a gentle exfoliating mask with a gentle dose of AHAs (or a dose of gentle AHAs), once or twice a week. Do NOT be tempted to overdo this. We LOVE the Votary Radiance Reveal Mask which combines gently exfoliating Lactic and Mandelic acid with soothing, barrier supporting ingredients like Echium and Sunflower seed unsaponifiables.
You can incorporate a hydrating serum with gentle exfoliating properties like the gentle Votary Brightening Hyaluronic acid serum with a low dose of Glycolic acid.
Support your Skin Barrier with healing, nourishing, hydrating ingredients. We love both Arcana’s Glasswing Ceramide Serum (combined with Arcana’s Nine Herbs Charm serum), as well as Verite’s Goodnight Recovery Sleep mask for soothing, barrier support, and repair.
Don’t forget the skin barrier in your hands which can get damaged with the amount of handwashing all of us are doing. We absolutely love the Verite Spa Japanese Lemon, Vanilla & Jasmine Hand Cream a lush creamy hand potion for day and night.
