June is National Acne Awareness Month and this year we have curated our routine to fight acne. Many people believe that the answer to their acne is to overbear it with a complicated regimen. We are here to tell you that the key to solving this skin issue is simplicity, efficiency, and consistency. Here is our Acne Fighting Ritual.
Step One: Cleanse
The 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk is the first step in creating a base for the rest of the routine. Made without harsh soaps and sulfates, it cleanses without irritating the skin. The key ingredients in this are soy milk, blue lotus and whole oat. All of which soothe the skin and tone skin. After this step, your skin should feel fresh, clean, and never stripped.
Step Two: Exfoliate
A crucial step to alleviate acne and scarring is to consistently exfoliate and renew the skin. By doing this you are ridding the skin of dead skin cells and other pollutants that are clogging your pores. Use the BLUE LOTUS Mud Mask + Exfoliant 1-2 times a week to see results in pore refining and radiance.
Step Three: Treat
The serums are an amazing way to add extra treatment into your regimen. The Brightening Serum includes ingredients like Vitamin C and Alpha Arbutin that heal uneven skin tone. It also includes Neem and Prune extracts to fade scarring left from previous breakouts. Apply the Brightening Serum twice daily for best results.
Step Four: Protect
It's no secret that the sun can do damage to your skin, by not protecting yourself with SPF you are exposing yourself to harmful sun rays. The Essential Daily Moisturizer with SPF30 blocks against both UVA/UVB sun rays without a white cast, making it easy for everyday use.
Bonus: Make-up + BB Cream
While we recommend letting your skin breathe every few days out of the week, sometimes we all want a bit of coverage. The BB Tinted Moist Cream covers redness and evens skin tone with a lightweight formula that won't leave skin feeling heavy. It also features the ingredient sugar maple, which works to improve skin texture while it's worn.
Is cream contour too heavy for your liking? The lightweight formula of the BB Tinted Moist Cream is blendable and buildable making it perfect for your contouring needs. Here's our easy step-by-step guide.
Step One - Shape
Map out your face and find the areas you would like to shape and slim, this could be along your hairline, underneath the cheekbones and your chin. Depending on your skin tone you will take either the shade Deep (for medium to medium-deep complexions) or the shade Medium (for light or fair complexions). Use the darker shade to contour in these areas.
Step Two - Highlight
Find the areas of your face that you want to accentuate and make pop, these are usually the tops of your cheekbones, under eyes, forehead, and chin. Using the Light shade, apply a small amount of BB Moist Cream to these areas to bring them out.
Step Three - Blend
Using a damp makeup sponge you can begin blending these lines. Start with the darker shade and blend to get rid of the harsh lines, being careful to not completely blend the color away. Flip your makeup sponge to its clean side and use this to blend the lighter shade in.
Once you've blended to your liking, set with powder and you're done!
