Taking care of your skin is a full time commitment, and don’t believe anyone that tells you otherwise. I’ve dedicated the last 3 years to getting to know my skin, and perfecting my weekly routine. But what do you do when you break out out of nowhere and need to get rid of acne ASAP?! Well here’s my little trick. One day a week I do this to fix any pimples or potential break outs.
First step: Wash your face with warm water, tap dry.
Second step: Apply the BOSCIA CHARCOAL PEELOFF MASK to the areas you wish to clean. Once a month I do the whole face, but usually I do my nose, chin, and cheeks once a week. Let it dry and try not to move your face at all for the next 30 minutes. Peel off the mask when ready, wash your face with lukewarm water. Rest your skin for 10 minutes.
Third step: Apply ORIGINS ACTIVE CHARCOAL MASK to the whole face. This will dry all the existing pimples and help them fall off. Also, it will be a further cleanse for this charcoal treatment. This mask requires a poker face the whole time. No drinking, talking, smiling, or eating. Just sit still for about 20 minutes, or if you’re impatient like me use a fan to help it dry. I use a traditional Japanese hand fan. Once it’s dry, thoroughly wash your face with warm water with circular motions, and then pat dry.
Now your face feels a little dry and uncomfortable.
Fourth step: This is crucial. After you’ve dried your face, use your favorite overnight hydration mask. I use LANEIGE WATER SLEEPING MASK. Apply the right amount and go to bed. Make sure to drink plenty of water for a good night sleep!
Fifth step: Good morning, gorgeous. Now that you’ve woken up, wash your face with cold water and it’s time to do your morning face routine.
Make sure you’re not allergic to any of the products before doing this routine and let me know what you think. I’ll post my Saturday combo routine soon if you guys like this one.
