Face Everyday With Your Natural Glow
Some people love putting on makeup everyday. It’s a ritual. But you? You’d love to get up, throw on some blush and mascara (or nothing at all!) and be out the door in 30 seconds flat. We want that for you, too. So if you feel like little imperfections in your skin are holding you back from being your best self, we’ve got you.
These ladies know their stuff and not only pamper you but educate you on how to take care of your skin. Their products are amazing! Can't say enough great things about SELF!
I’ve always liked to think that I’ve been blessed with good skin and could wash my face with soap and be totally fine, but it’s been two weeks and I’ve already visited Self twice, as well as committing to a TWICE daily (talk about going from 0 to 100) regimen. I can’t even believe I’m saying this, but I actually look forward to my morning and nightly face routine — probably because I can already notice a huge difference in such a short amount of time.
I’ve been using the SELF skincare line for a month and the change in my tone, texture, and overall glow is off the charts! I’m using less and less makeup, getting compliments from complete strangers and my confidence next level.
How do I incorporate new products into my skincare routine?
The best way to welcome new products into your skincare routine is to introduce them slowly and one at a time. This gives your skin the chance to get comfy with each new product and helps you pinpoint any potential reactions to a specific one. So, give your skin a good 1-2 weeks to get acquainted with each new product before you bring another one into the mix.
I just started a new product and I’m breaking out.
Purging is entirely normal, though it may feel a bit inconvenient initially. It's a temporary spike in acne that can occur when you start using a new product that speeds up cell turnover, like retinoids or exfoliating acids. This process usually goes on for about 6 to 8 weeks. Although it might seem a bit challenging at first, the payoff is clear, radiant skin. So, hang tight, and remember, it's a phase that leads to better skin health!
