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.

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.

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.

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.

My Favorite Way to "Treat Yo Self...": Getting a Pedicure and Dessert.

Best Beauty Trick I’ve Learned

The soap brow trend to get a big fluffy brow by using a spool in soap and brushing it through the brows.

My Holy Grail Skincare Product Is

Blueberry Milk by Sorella Apothecary.

Current Beauty/Trend I’m Loving

Fluffy brows and fresh glowing skin.

My Most Regrettable Beauty Faux Pas

Not blending my lip liner enough with my lipstick.

Who Inspires Me

I wouldn’t say one person in particular because I am inspired in so many ways. I’m inspired by makeup artists who do flawless, effortless beauty looks, by permanent makeup artists who create brows or areolas for people who have gone through traumatic illnesses, and by people who strive to take care of our planet.

I Am Passionate About

Making people feel good about themselves.

What Challenges Me

What challenges me is the constant need to always improve, evolve, and keep up with trends in this fast paced, quickly changing industry.

One Thing I Really Want to Learn Is

Lip blush for permanent makeup! I love the way it looks, and I want to be able to provide that to my clients.

My Favorite Client Moment Is

When my clients see their new, freshly microbladed eyebrows!
