What up what up?
I NEED to share some of my after traveling skincare routine with you guys.
I’m like really into taking care of my skin – sometimes it’s kind of obnoxious. Not in a bad way, but I’ve told CIC readers before that I will legit use hand soap to wash makeup off my face before bed if I have to…
Maybe that’s worse than wearing the makeup to bed LOL who knows.. but I feel like I need a clean face all.the.time.
Sometimes I honestly get anxiety when I have makeup on because I feel like my face is just… dirty. Sounds insane, I know. And yes, I wear still wear makeup. OBVIOUSLY. I just love feeling fresh, you know?
My face steamer is a pure example of fresh. YOU NEED ONE. It’s fucking amazing.
You literally stick your face in steam for about 10 minutes and it feels like every piece of dirt ever made just dripped off your face.. (SIGH). I can’t even explain it fully because you JUST need to experience it on your own.
Ok so you know about wearing eye masks on planes.. lol whatever. I told you it gets obnoxious.
NOW – for after the plane. Whenever I get home from vacation I am crazy about face masks, eye masks, face sprays, etc. I’m even kind of anal about makeup after being away for a bit. I haven’t worn foundation/bb cream once this week (since getting back from New Orleans) because I feel like I need to let my face breathe. It literally feels trapped, like I need it to be able to be free. I don’t know?
Also, it feels very swollen. Like, very swollen.
It’s super annoying.
My ice roller is KEY for this. I mean, honestly, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever purchased on Amazon. And I purchase a lottttt of things on there (my absolute favs: here & here). The ice roller just feels SO.GOOD. I roll it under my eyes for like 15 minutes, no lie.
So besides the bomb ass ice roller, I’m addicted to face and eye masks plus oils.
Whenever I get home from traveling I usually do a full face mask twice during the week, eye masks three times during the week, and I do oils daily. I will also use sprays to spritz up my skin a little bit. They are super refreshing!
Like I said, I try to avoid makeup and let my skin air out for a week or so. I get the ‘dewy’ look by the oils. I swear by the magic of jojoba oil. ALSO – coconut water spray. It gives you such a glow. I’m overly obsessed – I would spray it all over my entire body if I had time.
+ vitamin c spray’s
This is just a major yes all around. It makes you feel so refreshed and it really does give your skin a glow, shiny look. I carry it in my bag and spray some on my face throughout the day. I have no idea what the limit is, but I have none. I’m fully addicted.
+ snail eye masks
Eye masks are a must the week after a flight. They really, really, really help me. My eyes get SO swollen and I look beyond tired after weekends away.. it’s almost embarrassing! Snail eye masks have been saving my life – I feel like the skin under my eyes just pops after I use these. I need them all.
+ blueberry face mask
I can’t get enough of blueberries on my face (remember? LOL). I feel like my skin needs antioxidants, especially after traveling. And, duh, blueberries are packed with them! I love bright complexion and blueberry masks really do that for me.
THAT’S IT. That’s all you need to brighten your skin after traveling. They all work so good and you feel finnnne and refreshed. And seriously – get the facial steamer. I just can’t talk about it enough. Snapchat fam knows.
What are you guys doing? Let a girl know!
Going to go rub snail juice on my eyes as we speak..
