Keeping My Skin Merry & Bright

With new cleansers, creams, masks, and moisturizers coming out daily, the competition is fierce for space on your bathroom sink. But the real tie-breaker? What works for YOUR skin. And if you’re been here for any amount of time, you know that what has worked for mine the past 18 months has been TULA Skincare.

GLOW ALL OUT KIT

Like you, I’ve swiped on, slathered, and pat on dozens of skin-care products in my lifetime. I’ve scrubbed with some pretty spectacular (and at times maybe not so great) exfoliators, tapped on too many eye creams to count, and peeled with the best of them to find something that really worked for my skin.

Even now, when I’m in deep winter denial, I still pull out the big guns to keep my face moisturized and my skin from chafing. I refuse to dig out my real cold-weather gear (you know, the coat coat) and I’m leaving my beanie and gloves in my closet for now. I usually hibernate this time of year because I prefer to stay warm but the weather has the opposite effect on my skin! Between being repeatedly hammered in the face with arctic wind and having all the moisture sucked out of the air, my skin, unfortunately, pays the price. But with my line-up, I’m going to show you just how I keep my skin in check!

2 Staples You Need

For the health of my skin, I really do rely on the basics. And it doesn’t get more basic than a good cleanser. When I was younger, I thought that a good cleanser would leave my skin tight and squeaky clean. But now that I’m older and wiser, I know that this just isn’t good for my skin! A gentle cleanser, one that removes dirt and impurities but doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils, is so important!

TULA’s Purifying Gel Cleanser is so gentle and I use it with my favorite tool for washing my face, the Clarisonic brush. The technology provides a deep cleanse that you can’t get with your hands. It’s a must for home use if you want that ‘fresh-from-my-esthetician’ glow. I like to put a nickel-size amount of the cleanser on my brush and go to town!

The other star in this duo is TULA’s cult-favorite Hydrating Day & Night Cream. Moisturizers are like Saran wrap for your skin—they lock in dampness to keep you hydrated and glowing. And this cream is the best of the best! I use this nightly (with a few of my favorite tanning drops mixed in) and this keeps my skin from getting chapped during the winter!

Tone

I used to think I had to use a toner every single night, but the truth is, it just kept drying out my skin! But with TULA’s pro-glycolic 10% ph resurfacing gel, it simply  sloughs off dead skin cells (without over-drying), removes impurities, diminishes the appearance of pores after cleansing, deeply hydrates and conditions the skin for more radiance and glow. In fact:

“97% OF WOMEN SAID THEIR SKIN FELT MORE HYDRATED AFTER USING THIS RESURFACING GEL AS THEIR TONER STEP FOR 4 WEEKS. THE MAJORITY OF WOMEN AGREED THEIR SKIN TONE LOOKED MORE EVEN AND THEIR SKIN FELT SOFTER, SMOOTHER, AND PLUMPER.”

Used directly after cleansing on dry, clean skin, this toner is one of the major steps in locking in moisture!

Don’t Forget Your Eyes

I don’t know about you but my eyes can get crepey and dried out during the winter months. It’s not a pretty site! But I love TULA’s new rose glow & get it cooling & brightening eye balm. Made with the same probiotics + superfoods in their original Eye Balm (think: caffeine, aloe, blueberry & hyaluronic acid), plus the addition of rosehip oil (a plant-based retinol alternative) & hydrating rosewater so you feel instantly energized, awake & ready to glow.

You can see the glow on my arm straight away and it does exactly that when applied on the undereye! It instantly hydrates, cools, and almost reflects light so that even if you’re not resting well, your eyes won’t tattle on you!

Mask On Mask Off

When it comes to my skincare routine, the most indulgent thing I do is mask once or twice a week. In my opinion, there’s no better form of beauty T.L.C. than devoting 20 to 30 minutes to take care of your skin. And face masks are designed to deliver high concentrations of active ingredients to your skin than almost anything else out there!

I love this hydrogel mask for a number of reasons because it has so many dang benefits:

  • Calms distressed skin and relieves the look of redness and inflammation
  • Brightens the appearance of skin
  • Improves the look of skin elasticity
  • Contains probiotics and superfoods for a truly healthy glow
  • Aids moisture retention

It’s these 6 products that are getting me through this dry winter and when you snag all 6, you get MAJOR savings!

  • cult classic purifying face cleanser (6.7 fl oz)

For $98! This 5-star kit is valued at $174.00 and you’re getting $76 savings! But make sure you use my code TARA to get an additional 20% off your purchase!

Winter came, but that doesn’t mean your skin has to suffer!
