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.

Drinking the right amount of water is a great way to stay hydrated during hot summer days, but don’t forget to hydrate your skin, too!

Sorella’s Main Squeeze is an ultra hydrating serum. Infused with snow mushroom extract and peptides, it provides immediate plumping hydration with just a single application.

4. Avocado Oil Lip Hydrator

A day on the water can leave lips dry. Keep them hydrated with Sorella’s Avocado Oil Lip Hydrator.

The lip product’s plumping avocado oils and anti-aging polypeptides not only will provide all-day hydration, but help reduce fine lines.

(We have a feeling you’ll want one for home, work, the gym, etc.)
