Current Skincare Routine

As much as I love makeup, I am a firm believer that skincare should always be the #1 priority in your beauty routine. When you skin is at its best, everything else is just icing on the cake. Makeup goes on more easily and looks better on healthy, balanced skin. If you’re preparing for your wedding or big event, get into a regular skincare routine and consult with an esthetician and/or dermatologist to help guide you to your best skin. Keep in mind that products can do wonderful things, but genetics and lifestyle factors also play a major part in the health of your skin. Some key lifestyle factors include avoiding sun exposure, drinking enough water, not smoking, and getting enough rest. I believe investing in the health of your skin is something you will never regret. The video below is my current skincare routine and favorite products - please note that these products work well for my particular skin, but everyone’s skin has different needs and can react differently to ingredients. Be cautious and conservative when trying new products! XO KL
