The Perfect Skincare Routine For Morning & Night

Skin care can be so confusing. Cleansers, toners, serums, creams, primers, masks, and more! Where do you start, what do you need, and does order matter?

To start, yes, order matters. For a product to be effective, you need to follow a sequence that does not negate the previous products benefits.
You wouldn’t put your moisturizer on and then wash your face, right?

Another thing to think about, time of day plays a role in your skin care needs! That’s right! Your morning skin and night skin have different needs to be met which means different skin care. Oh geeze!

Don’t stress! We are here to help simplify things for you! Team Poshtopia is trained to provide you with personalized Pampered Readings. Each reading is catered specifically for you! We have a basic guideline we follow, but we mix things up as necessary so you are getting exactly what your skin needs without too much fuss and (hopefully) zero confusion!

Right now, I am here to help figure out basic routine …

MORNING SKINCARE:
Your main focus is hydration and protecting your skin from whatever elements your skin will come in contact with.
We all know the sun and outdoor pollution are bad for your skin, but indoor pollution is too, so we need to make sure you are sufficiently protected.

1) CLEANSER
Your skin comes in contact with pollutants while you are sleeping and our pillowcases harbor dust and bacteria. Add in sweat and drool and your face is in serious need of love come morning.
If you are just getting started, Right Back at Ya Two-in-One Cleansing Clay Face Wash and Mask is ideal for resetting both oily and dry skin!

2) TONER
Toner helps reset your skin back to its most basic healthy state. It is a great prep for your morning skin care routine. Well Adjusted Face Toner has glycolic acid that gently chemically exfoliates dull skin layers. Lentil extract reduces the appearance of pores and beta-glucan adds needed moisture to keep your skin balanced.

3) SERUM
Using a serum with vitamin C is extremely important. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that will protect your skin against UV rays, brighten your skin, and support collagen production to help slow down the signs of again. You also want hydration via hyaluronic acid, lipids, and/or ceramides. These all protect your skin from weather-related dryness and the extra hydration will plump and smooth your skin. Perfectly Posh offers several serums that provide both vitamin C and hydration in 1 easy step. For younger skin I often suggest Never Grow Up Serum and for more mature skin I suggest Nothing Phases Me Serum.

4) Eye Serum
Impish Eyes instantly perks up tired skin and lessens dark under-eye circles with caffeine, cucumber, and CoQ10 serum.
We also have Cheat Sheets Under Eye Sheet Masks, and under eye mask for that extra dose of pampering. I really like to use these after watching a tear-jerker movie or during or after a flight.

5) MOISTURIZE
Once your serums and eye care are fully absorbed, follow with a moisturizer. Perfectly Posh offers several that are targeted for specific skin types. Be sure to contact me for a personalized Pampered Reading and I will help you find the right fit! In a rush? Moisturize 911 Face Crème is always a safe bet; a lightweight, aloe-based, caffeinated face crème that rescues tired looking skin.

6) SPF
You should always finish your routine with SPF. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, you need to protect your skin from UV Rays! Block It Like It’s Hot Face Creme is our lightweight SPF 30 face crème with blood orange and hibiscus to guard against sun damage.

EVENING SKINCARE:
Your main focus in the evening is repairing and rejuvenating your skin. Night is when your focus is on addressing your personal skin care issues.

1) CLEANSER
Make sure you are washing your face at night! Ridding your skin of dirt, pollution, and makeup will help your skin stay healthier and younger looking longer.

2) MICELLAR TONIC (optional)
If you wear heavy makeup, it is advised you give your face an extra wipe with a makeup remover after you wash your face. You may be surprised that your clean face isn’t quite as clean as you thought!
A Micellar Tonic, like Bare It All, is ideal because not only does it grab the deep down grim like a magnet, but it provides a boost of extra hydration. Natural ingredients like coconut water, prickly pear, apple, and radish root will leave your skin refreshed.

3) SERUM
When targeting skin care concerns at night make sure you have the right serum. Defiant Naked Youth Serum is excellent for aging skin and Impress Me Probiotic Pressed Serum is perfectly soothing for sensitive and irritated skin.

4) EYE CREME
For targeted eye care, Perfectly Posh offers 2 eye cremes. Defiant Uplifting Eye Creme is an age-defying eye crème that helps diminish puffiness, dark circle, and crows feet around the eyes.
Prize on the Eyes Eye Crème is a gentle, but decadent eye crème that soothes the delicate skin around your eyes.

5) MOISTURIZE
At night, if needed, you can use a moisturizer that’s richer than what you would typically use in the morning. All I’ve Avo Wanted is an intensely nourishing face mask with avocado oil that you can wear overnight! If you don’t need a heavier moisturizer, use the same moisturizer you use in the morning.

Core Catalog, Products

2019 Perfectly Posh Core Catalog Released

50091111_10218682447478545_2429260565206532096_n

Perfectly Posh just launched their new 2019 Core Catalog. The Core Catalog is the foundation of our brand. It contains basic skincare essentials for everyday use and best sellers that have a sort of cult following by our customers (The Stripper!). These are the products that will stick around all year long. This catalog was highly anticipated as we said good-bye to some older items and saw sneak peeks of new ones to come.
The focus of the new catalog is very different from past themes. We are diving deeper into skin types and which products best benefit specific skin scenarios. Basically, we are getting into very personalized pampering! This includes an exclusive men’s line that was very much in demand!
I will dive deeper into this personalized pampering, or Pampered Readings, in the next post.

I am also very excited to share that we have expanded the line of our Shea Sisterhood products to include a GIANT Healer Skin Stick. Plus, more items are now being made with Shea butter from the Shea Sisterhood.
An additional $3 from the purchase of each Giant Healer is donated directly to our community in Ghana; Gizaa Gunda. Don’t forget, $1 from each purchase of Always Ghana Love You Bath Bar is also donated to Gizaa Gunda, where we are building and helping support the businesses of over 600 women and their families each year!
We are excited to announce we have also funded a warehouse through the You Deserve It Foundation. This is a much needed resource to that area!

OK! Without further ado I want to share my 6 favorite items from the new Core. Why 6? Because we offer Buy 5 Get the 6th item free!

  1. Right Back At Ya Cleansing Clay Face Wash and Mask. This product is unique  because it is a 2-in-1 wash and a mask! It is ideal to help reset and balance both overly oily or overly dry skin! I love it because it is gentle (and effective) enough for every one in my house (yes, my 9 year old daughter uses it too!). Talk about convenient!

  2. Mad For Magnesium is my current obsession. This goes way beyond love. Relax, calm, and soothe. Need I say more?

  3. So Soapy Bath Bar is like no other soap I have ever used. The indulgent scent alone is beyond heavenly. Add the incredibly rich lather and you will experience the most luxurious shower (or bath) ever. Seriously.

  4. I have been in love with Twilight Zoned since summer when it came out as a body creme. The cool melon scent is now in a hand creme and I am beyond thrilled! I bet you will go just as crazy for this as I have!

  5. Rubby Scrubby is technically not new. It is an oldie, but a goodie  that has come back! It is convenient and easy to use and keeps feet looking fresh all year long!

    lp4205-1

  6. I love Posh’s sugar lip scrubs (as do my VIPs!). Make Out Magic (another oldie but goodie that has returned) works to smooth and soothe dry lips and tastes so yummy! You know when you are making cookies and you add the sugar to the butter? Yeah. That. Mmmmmm.

 

There are so many amazing new products, which ones are you going to try first?
