I need to be told what to do. I'm not sure if it’s a touch of ADD, or if my brain is scattered from having to keep track of a million things from day to day, but I will admit, sometimes I have a difficult time keeping it together. Sometimes I just need to be told what to do. Establishing a skincare routine is always difficult for me as it requires me to focus, and decide exactly what, when, and why a particular product is necessary. Lucky for me, MyChelle Dermaceuticals has provided me with a delightful kit - the MyChelle Dermaceuticals "hello, beautiful" collection, which meets all of my skincare needs. Not only does this kit come organized in a beautiful flip-top box (made of recycled paper), but MyChelle has also outlined a 3 minute morning/night routine which anyone, even the most scatter-brained of us, can follow.
Let me begin by sharing MyChelle’s wonderful 3 minute morning/night ritual, which has simplified my skincare routine tremendously!! In the morning, I spend one minute on each step (sometimes less than a minute). MINUTE 1: Gently clean your face with one of our cleansers to wake up your skin and create a clean slate for the nourishment to come. MINUTE 2: Nourish your way to a great start every day with our power-packed serums, refreshing mists and luxurious creams. MINUTE 3: Protect your skin with our chemical-free, reef-safe, mineral-based sun defense products that show UVA and UVB rays who’s boss. These 3 steps cover all of your bases, leaving your skin radiant, cleansed, refreshed, nourished and protected from the sun. Who could ask for anything more?!?
Now ladies, lets not forget about our nighttime skincare routine. After a day of exposing our skin to makeup, pollution, dirt, oil and sun exposure, your nighttime ritual is just as important (if not moreso) than the morning routine. MyChelle gives an outline of an easy, 3 minute/3 step routine anyone should be able to follow with ease: MINUTE 1: Cleanse away the dirt and stress of the day with one of our refreshing cleansers. MINUTE 2: Once a week, treat your skin to one of our highly effective treatments, which include delicate peels, masks and scrubs. Apply one in less than a minute and then soak in the benefits while you tackle another chore before rinsing. MINUTE 3: Use our serums and creams to finish off your night and load up your skin with hydration and rich botanicals.
MyChelle offers an amazing array of products to use while adhering to the above mentioned 3 minute morning/night skincare regime. I was lucky enough to be able to use the following products for my new ritual. Step 1: the amazing White Cranberry Cleanser. This cleanser is naturally exfoliating and pore clearing, bringing skin into healthy balance. Willow Bark and Totarol™ bring balance to oily and blemish-prone skin conditions. Pomegranate, a super fruit rich in antioxidants and naturally exfoliating fruit acids, protects against environmental aggressors, while keeping pores clear and skin calm.
Step 2: the Incredible Pumpkin Peel exfoliates and deeply nourish skin with Pumpkin Pulp, Enzymes and Fermented Juice. Loaded with antioxidants, this fortifying peel rejuvenates and supports cellular integrity while clearing pores and aiding detoxification. Skin is left feeling incredibly soft, smooth and clean with a renewed healthy glow. This product smells good enough to eat. Think pumpkin pie, YUM.
