Finding the right skincare system can be challenging, there are so MANY choices and it can get complicated. Also, finding something that actually works? Good Luck!
On my journey to clear, bright, flawless skin I discovered Vasanti’s Brighten Up! Skin Care Mini’s. What really stood out to me was ” 5 steps, 5 days, transform your skin!” Doesn’t that just sound amazing and oh did I mention the Brighten Up! Skincare Mini’s are ONLY $19?! … so I had to give it a try and this is what I learned:
Skin care is more than just cleanse and moisturize. There are important steps that we should not leave out– maybe thats where I’ve been going wrong.
CLEANSE – “duh, you’re supposed to wash your face!”
TRUE!What you use to wash your face is just as important as washing your face! A lot of cleansers on the market tend to dry and irritate skin. One of the reasons for this is the use of Sulphates in the formula. Sulphates tend to strip natural oils which leaves the skin parched, dry and uncomfortable. Vasanti’s Brighten Up! Aloe Cleanser is not only Sulphate free but actually has incredible ingredients like Oatmeal Kernel Oil, made to build the skins moisture barrier which is key for sensitive skin and to prevent aging! Great for Daily use (morning & night)
EXFOLIATE –“but aren’t exfoliators kinda harsh?”
FALSE! Exfoliation is absolutely key to healthy, clear, bright skin! We all get a build up of dead skin cells, it’s natural. In fact, our skin regenerates every 21-90 days(depending on age),which means dead skin needs to shed for new healthy skin to emerge. The dead skin cells left on the skin can make your skin appear tired, blah, dull, uneven and rough. And that expensive serum you’ve been using, won’t work as effectively because dead skin cells don’t allow for proper penetration of moisturizers/serums. Vasanti’s Brighten Up! Exfoliator is 99% natural and doubles as a micro-dermabrasion. It is an aloe based exfoliator made for the most sensitive of skins, hydrates with coconut and exfoliates with papaya. Did I mention it’s also a micro-dermabrasion treatment but natural and NOT HARSH? Brighten Up! Exfoliator is made with 25% grade crystals(the same crystals your dermatologist uses) and the micro-crystals are NOT plastic beads(yay! for the environment!) Best for use 3-5 days/week(gentle enough to use everyday)
DETOXIFY – “aren’t masks what you wear on Friday Nights for fun with your friends?“
Haha, YES and NO! Masks can of course be worn with your girlfriends (spread the wealth of good skin to your girls too). However, masks are not just for fun, in fact they are key to revitalizing your skin. There is a HUGE variety of masks, some brighten, others moisturize and some just look cool. It’s impossible to figure out what you need without sacrificing what you want. Vasanti’s Miracle Mask is a heaven sent! It is a 5-in-1 mask made to detoxify, brighten, hydrate, nourish AND exfoliate your skin. Whoa, talk about multi-tasking. This charcoal activated mask, is made to remove impurities trapped deep in your pores, brighten with turmeric, hydrate + nourish with butters AND exfoliate lightly with papaya. When you’re ready to wash your face, your face will get ALL the benefits the various masks on the market offer BUT in ONE MASK. Use 1-2 times per week.
HYDRATE – “aren’t moisturizers a necessity for dry skin?”
FALSE. Hydration is absolutely KEY to healthy youthful skin. In fact, our bodies are comprised of 70% water! We crave hydration! And just like not drinking enough water, most of us don’t hydrate skin well either. You might be wondering, isn’t hydration JUST for dry skin. NOPE! You can have oily skin and still be dehydrated, meaning the surface of your skin may appear oily but the dermis is lacking hydration. Lack of hydration is one of the main causes of premature aging! In order to keep your skin looking and feeling supple you must hydrate! Vasanti’s Brighten Up! Amplify moisturizer is an aloe based moisturizer, that dries quickly and delivers not only moisture but radiance!Great for Daily use (morning & night)
SERUM – “oh is this a fancy word for waste of money?!”
FALSE! Serum’s work best to deliver a high concentration of key active ingredients to skin. The molecules of a serum are made to absorb much faster into skin’s epidermis to get to work on repairing damage ASAP. Vasanti’s Brighten Up! Glow Boosting Serum not only deliver the benefits of ingredients such as Abbysinian Oil (hydration) and Arbutin(evens skin tone without the use of hydroquinone!) but leaves you with the most beautiful glass-like skin! Great for Daily use (morning & night)
These 5 easy to use steps will transform your skin! I found after 2 weeks of use and following the above steps to a T, my skin was noticeably brighter, smoother and did I mention – compliment worthy?! What are you waiting for, get this cute Brighten Up! Mini’s today!
