Wisdom from an aesthetician

Top 3 skincare tips …
Exfoliate—personally, I love an enzyme peel. Put it on before you get into the shower and then wear it for five to 10 minutes with the steam. I love a good gua sha facial massage with your favorite facial oil. It relieves a lot of tension in the facial muscles and drains the lymphatic fluid that causes puffiness. Also, a hydrating mask that can be worn at night and then taken off in the morning gives your skin a nice, thorough drink of water.
Skincare routine …
For some, less is more, so if you’re inclined to do less to get the regimen done then I would go that route. Being a new mom myself, less is more because that’s more realistic. I would always say stick with a good cleanser, a fabulous moisturizer, sunscreen, and a great exfoliator.
Creating a spa vibe …
I like to pick one night a week and create a spa experience. A nice bath, setting the ambience with music, essential oils, and a nice face mask. Also, some healthy snacks and a little spa elixir, such as Champagne or cucumber-mint water, which is my favorite.
