Glass Skin (pt. 2)

After any kind of exfoliation, it is necessary to hydrate your skin and strengthen the skin barrier. I’ve started using ROVECTIN liquid skin lotion from Sokoglam daily to protect my skin after bi-weekly exfoliation. 

The liquid lotion has caffeine extract which Sokoglam states is used to depuff your skin as well as hyaluronic acid and natural enzyme exfoliants. Before using this liquid lotion I like to use rose water. Then I apply liquid lotion, a serum, eye cream, and a face lotion. I’ve used Marc Jacob’s Youthquake for about one month and my bottle is practically done.

I like Youthquake’s gel-like texture. I prefer gel-like lotions in the spring and summer and richer custard-like lotions for the fall and winter. I enjoyed using my March Jacobs face lotion because it brightened my skin with pineapple extracts. I’ve now switched over to using Peter Thomas Roth moisturizer because I’m gravitating towards that brand and Kiehl’s again.

However, it is not due to any shortcoming from Marc Jacobs Youthquake. I think Youthquake is on par with Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer except it is slightly thicker. Currently, Neiman Marcus is selling Youthquake for only USD 29. Sokoglam sells the Rovectin for USD 29 as well. ❤

Dermaplaning at Home (Glass Skin pt. 1)

This post is an installment for a two-part series on how to achieve clear glass skin at home. My step one of glass skincare is dermaplaning.

I recommend StackedSkincare’s dermaplaning tool because it is safe to use and has more blade exposed than the typical tool. I believe effectiveness and safety are important components for dermaplaning so I recommend investing in a good tool rather than purchasing a cheap product. The cost of this tool from StackedSkincare is $75.

I use witch hazel after dermaplaning to clean up my face and close my pores.

If you purchase this product, note that changing the blade is tricky. I suggest that you always keep the cover on the blade when changing blades and use a tool to help “hit” it off the wand. The brand has a video on how to use this tool and on how to change the blade on YouTube. I also bought a pack of blade replacements from the site. I clean the tool with rubbing alcohol after each use. The blade needs to get replaced monthly.

Why is Dermaplanning Great for your Skin?

  1. It prevents breakouts
  2. Gets rid of dead skin and peach fuzz
  3. Softens skin
  4. Reduces fine lines

Peach fuzz and facial hair darken and shade your face, this is a major obstacle in the way of achieving glass skin. That’s why I recommend weekly dermaplaning at home as step 1 for glass skin. Let’s have glass skin together! Look forward to my second installment because the products used after this treatment can help you achieve glass skin. ❤
