This is such a multi-purpose product for me, besides the amazing job it does for my brows! It also is amazing for taming stray hairs for whatever hair style I’m doing! I have one in every purse. Haha I can’t live without this stuff!

Static Nails

Now I know this is bringing you back to your 12 year-old self but hear me out! I’ve been a huge fan of press-on nails for years now because I’m able to switch up my styles and colors for less than half the price of going to a salon! My favorite brand is Static Nails.

They stay on for 2-3 weeks, and they have a wide variety of shapes and colors to suit whatever mood you’re in! Don’t knock it until you try it!

Sorella Main Squeeze Hydrating Serum

This stuff has a very unique tacky texture to it which I like for daytime use. With it, my makeup stays put, and the serum gives me a plump and hydrated complexion.

Skincare Routine with Chelsea

We’re kicking off a new employee spotlight series. Each month we’ll be featuring a La Belle Aesthetician’s step-by-step at home skincare routine including instructions, products, and even a video tutorial. Up first: Master Artist and Aesthetician Chelsea!

Chelsea is sharing her Sunday Skincare Routine, perfect for when you need that little bit of extra cleansing.

All Fresh Faced Skin Care, A Natural Difference, and Sorella Apothecary products featured in Chelsea’s routine are available at both La Belle Studio locations.

Step 1: Remove Makeup

Chelsea begins her routine by removing her makeup. To remove mascara, foundation, etc., she likes to use Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Cleanser. It’s a great product if you wear lash extensions, which can’t be exposed to oil-based products because oil will break the lash bond.

Apply the cleanser to a makeup pad or cleansing cloth, then gently remove your mascara and any other makeup you have applied.

Products Used: Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Cleanser + Cleansing Cloth.

Step 2: Cleanse the Skin

Once her makeup is removed, Chelsea cleanses her skin. Her go-to product is Fresh Faced Skin Care’s Gentle Face Wash, which is a great every day product. (It’s also safe to use on lash extensions.)

But on Sundays, Chelsea adds Sorella Apothecary’s Polishing Powder to it for a more powerful clean.

She combines her cleanser and a little bit of the Polishing Powder by sprinkling/pouring both into her hand and then mixing them together. Next, she applies the mixture to her face and cleanses as she normally would, working the cleanser into any areas where she normally gets oil build up.

Then using two facial sponges, she removes the residue from her face.

Products Used: Fresh Faced Skin Care’s Gentle Face Wash; Sorella Apothecary’s Polishing Powder; and Facial Sponges.

Step 3: Tone the Skin

Next, Chelsea tones her skin with Fresh Faced’s Pore Perfection. This product helps to balance the pH of your skin, refine pores, and keep your skin nice and clear. She applies it to a cleansing cloth and swipes all over.

Products Used: Fresh Faced Skin Care’s Pore Perfection + Cleansing Cloth.

Step 4: Apply Mask

This is Chelsea’s favorite part of her Sunday Skincare Routine: a Papaya + Pumpkin Mask from Sorella Apothecary.

She gently applies a thin layer of the mask allover then leaves it on for approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

The mask helps to prevent breakouts and gives your skin an amazing glow.

Bonus Mask Tip: If you find you’re on the verge of a breakout or have a stubborn blemish that won’t go away, Fresh Faced Skin Care’s Purifying Sulfur Mask is great for a spot treatment. Apply wherever you’re getting a breakout or feel a pimple is about to come to the surface, and leave on for about 10 to 15 minutes.

Products Used: Sorella Apothecary’s Papaya + Pumpkin Mask; Fresh Faced Skin Care Purifying Sulfur Mask.

Step 5: Apply Serum

Once Chelsea finishes removing her mask, she applies her serum.

A Natural Difference’s Erase A Line is one of Chelsea’s holy grail products… for good reason! : )

The next day after applying, she notices the fine lines around her eyes and on her forehead are noticeably smoother. It has an exfoliation quality to it, keeping your skin fresh and clean and exfoliated.

Be sure to only use this product at nighttime.

Product Used: A Natural Difference’s Erase A Line.

Step 6: Apply Eye Cream

For the eyes, Chelsea likes to use Sorella Apothecary’s Yogurt Kale Eye Cream. It’s super hydrating and has anti-aging properties, and lightweight. She also notices that it’s great for preventing concealer caking when she applies her eye concealer on top.

Product Used: Sorella Apothecary’s Yogurt Kale Eye Cream

Step 7: Apply Moisturizer

Chelsea finishes her routine by applying Sorella Apothecary’s Blueberry Milk Moisturizer. The product smells amazing and can be used daytime, nighttime, or both. It’s not too heavy, and it will keep your skin nice and hydrated without making you greasy.
