♡ My Most Current Skincare Routine

skincare-routine

If you’ve seen my other post on skincare products, you’ll know I’ve tried a TON of different things. Although Eminence was a pretty great option, after 6 months of use, my skin still needed some extra love. After running out of all of my Eminence, I reached out to the Esthetician (Alexandra) at Organic Bunny to get help establishing a brand new skincare routine. She was super thorough and asked me all kinds of questions about my skin. She also asked me if I had a price point, which is awesome for us people on a budget. She gave me several options under each category: Cleanser, Toner, Masks, Moisturizer, & Serums. I’ve been doing this about 3 months and my skin is SO MUCH BETTER. I’ll be completely honest, this skin care routine is $$$. My skin has been rough since moving to Utah and I needed all the help I could get. I procrastinated getting the Kypris line for so long…1. Because it’s expensive as hell and 2. Because I didn’t know if it truly lived up the hype. Trust me, it works wonders. It also last forever and a little goes a long way. Knowing that it would work well and that it would last a long time, I invested in this routine. Here’s a look at my current skincare routine that’s taken me 3 years to get right. I’m not just satisfied with it, but amazed by the positive change in my skin! Before & After pics are below!

Cleanser:

FITGLOW Beauty Calm Cleansing Milk: This is absolutely amazing for sensitive and dry skin. It’s super gentle and removes all my makeup. It doesn’t strip the skin at all. I like this cleanser better than any oil cleanser I have tried. It’s a blend of organic cucumber, aloe, chamomile and wild-crafted rose.

Toner:

Fitglow Beauty Sea Toning Mist: This is hands down the best toner ever. Most toners dry my skin out even more, but this one is balancing and refreshing for the skin. You can even set your makeup with it. It’s great for sensitive skin (hello, me!), redness, and inflammation as it contains wildcrafted rose, willowbark organic aloe, kelp, blue green algae, and hyaluronic acid to boost moisture and hydrate the skin. It also removes any remaining makeup, even if you don’t think you have any left to remove.

Masks:

Kypris Glow Philtre: This is one of the best masks I’ve used. Most masks I’ve bought in the past are made with cheap ingredients. Yes those charcoal or oatmeal masks don’t do much good. I didn’t know this until I spoke with an esthetician about my skin. A mask is something you invest in and quality ones are actually pretty pricey. This mask makes my skin smooth, soft, and gives a glowy finish. It’s ultra hydrating and helps maintain clear pores and a smooth texture! It also exfoliates and reduces any hyperpigmentation! I use it about 2-3 times a week and after 2 weeks of use, I noticed a BIG difference. I apply a thin layer to damp skin (a little goes a long way) and leave on for 20 minutes. I then wash it off with a cloth.

100% Pure Acai Pulp Facial Scrub: I keep this scrub in the shower and use it 1-2x a week. It’s rich, yet great on sensitive skin. It’s also perfect to remove any dead or dry skin! I expected it to dry my face out like most scrubs do, but it left my skin silky smooth and moisturized. You can either massage it into skin using a small circular motion or leave it on for 15 minutes and let the fruit enzymes naturally exfoliate without scrubbing (although I still buff off at the end just to make sure all the skin is removed).

Serums:

Kypris Antioxidant Dew: I learned this from Amanda of Organic Bunny. One mistake people tend to make (I did this for years!) was feeding the skin moisture (oil) when your skin really needs hydration (water). You can drink all the water in the world, but it’s still not enough, especially if you have dry skin. My skin was super dry and scaly and was desperate for hydration. This serum has been a dream for my skin. It’s packed with Vitamins and nutrients and calms my redness . It also enhances my skin’s elasticity.

Kypris Clearing Serum: I use this for any blemishes I get. I also use it daily (at night time) just to keep my hormonal breakouts under control. It has zinc, green tea, lavender, etc. and works to heal and prevent breakouts.

Eye Cream:

Good Medicine Starry Eyes Brightening Cream: I love this eye cream! I bought the small size a long time ago still have half left. It’s potent and works to reduce under eye circles, wrinkles, and puffiness. It has a warm sensation when you apply, so you know it’s getting to work!

Moisturizer:

Kypris Beauty Elixir III- Prismatic Array: There’s 3 different Elixirs to choose from! The Elixir I “1000 Roses” was recommended to me initially for my very dry skin, but I ended up going with the second recommendation (Elixir III) as it is still very moisturizing and a little more cost-effective. All of the Kypris Elixirs are the holy grails of moisturizers. Elixir II is for oily skin! I use the elixir twice a day. Its full of collagen-promoting properties, essential fatty acids, and natural actives. It will also last a longggg time.


My Personal Routine

My skin is on the dry side with hormonal breakouts. Sharing what I do daily below! For these blends, you can layer the products one by one or mix them in the palm of your hand and apply all at once.

AM: I spray a bit of the toning mist on a cotton ball and gently wipe my face. I do NOT use cleanser in the morning. Then I add a few drops of Antioxidant Dew mixed with 2-3 drops of the Beauty Elixir III. I apply this about 10 minutes before starting my makeup routine so it really soaks in. You can use the Clearing Serum twice a day if you’d like, however, I just use it nightly.

PM: I remove my eye makeup with an oil like coconut or jojoba. Then I use cleanser, toner, a few drops of Antioxidant Dew mixed with 2-3 drops of Clearing Serum, and 2-3 drops of Beauty Elixir III.

Kypris truly is WORTH IT!
