Today I want to talk SKINCARE! Everybody talks about it, it’s everywhere you look and I (personally) feel SO dang overwhelmed with ALL of the products on the market. How do I know what’s best for MY skin? What really works? Why can’t I just have one product line that does it all?? Today I’m going to talk about it ALL + I want to share a few fave skincare tips that I’ve been using for years.
First off I just want to preface this by saying that I was THAT girl that was using anti-aging skin products when I was in middle school and highschool.. not extra AT ALL right?? I have been worried about handling how my skin aged from a very young age. I seemed to have lost some of that wisdom, however, in my late teenage years and in my early 20’s and lived in a tanning bed. That sun kissed glow is just so dang addicting. I am now slowly starting to pay for all that extra exposure that none of our skin needs. I spent the last half of my 20’s getting smarter, but didn’t overly focus on anti aging so much, rather moisturizing and healthy skin.
When I turned 30 last year I suddenly felt this pressure to “get it together” with my “anti aging” skincare routine. I for SO long was dying to find the perfect skincare routine. I wanted a company to deliver me with everything I needed in one line. I didn’t want to worry about trying to research five different brands for five different products, I know I know, I wanted it ALL. I just have never felt satisfied in the past. I found myself using one product from this line, and another from this line and was constantly wondering, am I covering all the bases? When I found this line, I was apprehensive it would be able to fill my bucket of needs, but was open to trying it. It checked off my “must have’s” in the area that it was a one stop shop system, GF, Paraben free, Sulfate free, and cruelty free, Lastly, the ingredients were all natural based.
After extensive research on the company and the ingredients, I decided to give it a try. I have been using it for a little over a month now, and I am hooked! My skin seemed to adjust to the routine very well, no redness or break outs like I have experienced with other products. I have noticed the fine lines on my face diminishing, my complex appears to be more even toned, and I have noticed my skin just looking healthier overall!
This five step skincare routine is the one that I have been using and to be honest, loving!
This is my night routine I follow each night + morning, with the exception that someday’s I skip the eye cream in the am
Step 1: Saranghae nourishing + moisturizing oil + foam cleanser
I LOVE this cleanser, not only does it have truffle and gold extract (YES PLEASE), it serves as a make up remove and cleanser all in one for me. It deep cleans the pores like an oil cleanser, but removes like a foam cleanser. I love how well it cleans my face, but yet leaves it feeling so moisturized. In addition to good cleansing and moisturizing, drinking WATER and lots of it, helps keep not only you hydrated, but your skin as well! It is recommended that you drink half your body weight (converting the pounds to ounces) a day. So if you weigh 130lbs, you should be drinking 65oz of water a day. Our skin is our largest organ, so naturally it is SO important to keep it well hydrated. Often I even try and go for the full weight of my body (adding oz). To keep track of my water intake I have the same 330z water bottle I use everyday. So I try and fill it up 3x a day. Once in the morning, once mid day, and then once in the evening. It is an easy way to ensure all your water intake for the day is accomplished.
Step 2: Saranghae deep radiance essence + serum
This serum I apply once my face is dry from cleansing. This bad boy is full of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. I didn’t know much about hyaluronic acid until finding this product line, but did you know that is what keeps moisture in our skin? We start to lose this acid at (as early as) 18, even though the damage of the loss doesn’t show until our 30’s or 40’s! When applying multiple products to your face, you always want to start with the lightest product first and move to the thicker ones as you go. This ensure that the products that are less dense are reaching your pores and not getting blocked by thicker creams. Also, treat your neck as an extension of your face, apply serum and creams that are for the face on your neck as well.
Step 3: Sarahnghae Firm & Lift Celluar Regeneration Cream
This might be my favorite step! I love me a good moisturizer and this one packs a good punch. Not only does it leave my skin feeling moisturized, it is reducing damage by oxidative stress produced from free radical damage. When applying any moisturizer, ensure you are massaging it into your skin, in a circular motion. This aids in circulation and added bonus…face massage!
Step 4: Saranghae focus renewal eye cream
This eye cream does what every good eye cream should do, tighten, lift and brighten. How it does it though, is how this product is unique. It is formulated with Sang Hwang mushroom, which is full of power anti inflammatory, anti bacterial and antioxidant properties.
Step 5: Saranghae elemental essence mask (This step I usually do once a week, usually at night)
This mask filled with coQ10 (if you haven’t heard of it before, look it up, SO good), and more hyaluronic acid. It leaves my skin feeling fresh, smooth and beautiful!
That’s it, four easy daily steps and one mask (as needed). I love that it is one product line, and it is quick and easy! We are all busy and we need quick + easy, but effective. Have you tried this line? Let me know in the comments, or if you plan to try it, please share with me your experience!
