Here’s the exact product formula I followed to get the most glowing skin I’ve had in five-plus years—definitely since I started the sleepless-night circus known as parenthood.
This step was therapeutic in itself. If you want the key to taking the chore out of washing your face, we have a hint for you: Make it a luxury. I applied a pump of Nourishing Oil Cleanser directly to dry skin, massaging it in a circular motion, adding water when needed to give it just a hint of creaminess.
Now this is where I’m really bringing the insider info. The next step is to layer the Resurfacing Mask directly on top of the Oil Cleanser. I know it sounds a little crazy, but go with it. Leave it on for five minutes before gently wiping clean with a warm, damp cloth. Luxury skin, delivered. If you want to invest in one product, my vote goes for the Resurfacing Mask. While all the products we featured here are standouts in their categories, the Resurfacing Mask might get you the most impact for the price point—and it definitely will go a long way with your morale. There’s something about taking time for an early morning face mask that can really start one’s day off on the right foot, no?
