Quick Skin Regimen

A skincare regimen is elusive for a lot of people.  Many people aren’t sure which creams or serums to use and in what order.  They wonder if they should exfoliate, and if so, how often.  And serums? Which ones? During facials, I give customers insight about the best products (cleansers, serums, moisturizers, etc.) to use. But what if you’re in a DIY kind of mood and want something earthy & simple to get your skin glowing in the morning?  So, I have a gift for you. Here’s a super-quick skincare regimen that even the busiest CEO’s can follow. Each one takes less than 10 minutes, I swear. Ready? Here you go:

If you have dry or combination skin, try this:

  1. Scrub: Don’t throw away those coffee grinds! Mix a pea-sized amount with a creamy cleaner. The caffeine will simulate & invigorate your skin. The longer you leave this combo on your skin, the more invigorating it will feel.

  2. Soothe: Put a few drops of oil -- like grapeseed or coconut oil -- in the palm of your hand and mix with a few drops of calming essential oils (like lavender or bergamot). Pat your face gently with the mixture.  

  3. Moisturize: Apply your favorite moisturizer.

  4. Protect: Apply sunscreen.

 

If you have oily skin, try this:

  1. Scrub: Don’t throw away those coffee grinds! Mix a pea-sized amount with a gel cleaner. The caffeine will simulate & invigorate your skin. The longer you leave this combo on your skin, the more invigorating it will feel.

  2. Soothe: Put a few drops of hyaluronic acid in a bowl and mix in a few drops of your favorite essential oils with antiseptic properties. For a light serum, use tea tree oil. For a medium one, use eucalyptus oil. For a strong one, use peppermint or all three.      Pat your face gently with the mixture.

  3. Moisturize: Apply your favorite moisturizer.

  4. Protect: Apply sunscreen.
