Lauren Ashtyn's Skincare Must Haves!

The best foundation you can wear is healthy looking skin!

Lets start out by me being upfront and honest... I am SO picky when it comes to skincare or makeup! These products are all things I have learned and researched on over the years. I am NOT sponsored by any of these companies however I would love to be because I love their products so much and I never promote anything unless I absolutely love it! (After all I do have a reputation to uphold and promoting things you don’t love feels dishonest to me) Most of you don’t know but I had severe acne 8th grade through high school and it was so depressing. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere most of the time because I was so embarrassed and didn’t want to be made fun of. I’m so blessed to have the skin I have now! The biggest difference is the products I’m using all used together!! I’ve always been really good about washing my face morning and night but what I didn’t realize is that when I have makeup on I need to use cleanser to clean my makeup off then wash my face again to get into my pores and actually clean my skin! Doing this with the correct cleanser has been a game changer! Plus using all products that get all the dead skin layers off so my moisturizers can actually penetrate to the max into my skin! I hope this helps you guys out too! As soon as you use these products you feel an immediate difference in the way your skin can breathe! I would love your feedback if you try one of these products!

Here are my skincare essentials! I have put them in order of how I use them every morning and night! I use every product morning and night except the Daily skin peel (I only use at night) and the SPF (I only use in the morning). Also keep in mind once your done applying the products to your face and neck wipe the excess on the top of your hands! I do this with every step.


*I do this once per week*

One of the key factors in having dewy smooth skin is making sure your skin is properly exfoliated!! This little device is amazing! I use to exfoliate with very harsh little beads in a cleanser and that is finally a thing of the past!!! A couple of years ago I started shaving my face... yes that's right I said it I was SHAVING MY FACE but didn't like that I could cut myself and getting your forehead was quite a challenge using a real razor plus what if I slipped and got my eyebrows LOL! This little device basically exfoliates and gets all the unwanted peach fuzz in one swipe!!!! Its a total must have considering I invest so much in my skincare and what's the use in doing that if it can't penetrate into your skin as well because you have dead skin sitting as a barrier on top! This little tool is a must try!


Step 1

Pre-cleanse

A pre-cleanser is like a rinse for your skin, designed to remove makeup and general dirt/debris. By doing that, it gives your normal cleanser a chance to do its job properly and actually cleanse skin (rather than having to double job).

I use this product by wetting my hands with warm water and applying a dime size amount to cleanse all the makeup and oils off of my face. This gentle cleanser removes impurities without stripping skin of the essential oils your skin needs. Unlike most pH-neutral cleansers, this formula foams into a creamy lather, leaving skin silky, smooth, and well-moisturized. This key ingredient also helps to balance the pH-level of the skin, which helps the skin function properly.

 

 

Step 2

Cleanser (I use the deep)

This product is LIFE CHANGING! I have been using it for years now and there is nothing on the market like it! This cleanser cleanses your skin while also gently exfoliating your skin at the same time! Instantly after using it I can feel my skin "breathe". I apply 1/4th a teaspoon of the powder into my damp hands and rub both of my hands together to create the perfect texture of paste before applying and cleansing my entire face with it. I usually cleanse for around 45 seconds before rinsing. The Rice Polish gives your skin a new beginning through non-abrasive exfoliation and pure Japanese ingredients delivered in a cloud-like foam. Finely ground rice bran and papaya enzymes promote natural skin turnover to instantly reveal a smooth, makeup-ready canvas. The pH neutral, amino acid base formula provides effective cleansing without stripping skin of essential moisture or breaking the skin’s barrier function, leaving skin baby-soft and supple. Hadasei-3™, a trio of anti-aging Japanese superfoods - green tea, rice and algae - helps restore healthy-looking, youthful radiance. Daily use helps to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation and breakouts.

 

 

Step 3

Daily skin peel 

(Night Routine only)

I use this product every single night! (When first starting out with this product I would use 1-2 times per week and slowly start using it more often because this product is very powerful)

This product is a total game changer in the industry in my opinion. You have access to a peel on your skin that truly works without being overpowering it will give you that instant glow! A patented two-step anti-aging AHA/BHA peel pad pre-dosed with seven acids to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, pores, and shine.It has one cloth that you use until the wipe is dry and then let it sit on your skin for two minutes. Following the first wipe there is a step two wipe that you use until this one gets dry. Then you will follow with next step.

(Always avoid eye area with any type of skin peels)

Step 4

Acid Charcoal Serum

A universal serum that uses six acid blend and charcoal to instantly plump fine lines, fight dullness, and exfoliate dry surface cells. I always use one pump into my hand and then pat into the skin gently avoiding the eye area. This product gives an instant glow to your skin!

 

 

Step 5

Collagen Boosting Peptide Serum

A serum that is packed with supportive peptides and raspberry stem cells to help support natural collagen for firmer-, plumper-, younger-looking skin. I use 1 pump of this product all over my face avoiding the eye area. This product smells SO GOOD! This lightweight anti-aging serum nourishes and enhances radiance from the first application. With daily use, YOUTHPOTION™ helps visibly restore skin’s youthful bounce and smoothness while the look of fine lines and wrinkles are significantly reduced for younger-looking, glowing skin.

 

 

Step 6

The holy grail of moisturizers

 A protein moisturizer that combines signal peptides, growth factors, amino acids, and pygmy waterlily to visibly improve skin‘s tone, texture, and firmness. I use one pump of this amazing moisturizer all over including my eye area and lips too! This cream is free of essential oils, silicones, and fragrance.

 

 

Step 7

Worlds best face oil

Okay I have to be the first to admit I was super skeptical of this product. I have combination skin but it can get oily if I use the wrong type of product or makeup. So obviously anytime I have used a face oil it has ended with having a greasy face. (YUCK) I read the reviews on this product and watched the video and I thought if all of these women with acne prone skin can use this oil then I should give it a try! IM SO GLAD I DID! I will never go without this product. I will give you a disclaimer this oil has a very potent smell... some reviews people done like the smell.... I LOVE THE SMELL lol it smells like essential oils rubbed all over your face and neck! This unique blend of rosehip and damascus rose oils combined with 13 other skin-loving oils that give you a more even, bright, and smooth appearance. I use 2-3 drops and pat it all over my skin including lips and eye area.

 

Step 8

Deep hydrating firming eye cream

The serum glides effortlessly onto skin with a cooling ceramic applicator to calm. Fast-absorbing—making it suitable for use under makeup or for makeup-free radiance—this serum is an effortless, soothing start to revitalized-looking eyes all day. This product has a great applicator the you can use directly under the eye area!

 

Step 9

(Morning Routine only)

Super Serum Skin tint 40SPF

One of my FAVORITES this skin tint has been amazing for a glowy skincare routine. This serum is literally perfect for anyone wanting an extra glow! I don't even use foundation anymore instead I just use this product! I use the color 7 Diaz. If you wanted more coverage then you can always put your foundation on top but for me this has been perfect for making my skin look and feel as smooth as glass! I do use a very very light powder on top and just pat it into my skin so through the day I don't look oily! Im also a huge fan of this because I think this will be perfect for summertime having 40SPF!! Try this product you won't be disappointed!

DRINK TONS OF WATER! I try to drink a gallon of water per day. You always want to make sure you drink at least half of your weight in oz of water per day. Yes I know water is boring but it is a game changer when it comes to skin!

I drink 2tbs of apple cider vinegar with 1/2 a lemon mixed in warm water every single morning!
