Skin care is the range of practices that support skin integrity, enhance its appearance and relieve skin conditions. If there is one positive thing I can take out of this quarantine, it is that I have learned more about myself and how to self care. During these (almost) two months, I have been studying my skin and trying skin care products at home that I have and haven't used before, combining different products, etc.
Overtime, I have found the PERFECT skincare routine for me that I use every morning and night and my skin has been FLAWLESS. My skin is so much brighter and smoother that on FaceTime, my mom thinks I am wearing makeup!
The skincare products I use are all from VERSED, a non-toxic, vegan, sustainably minded skincare brand that can be found on VersedSkincare.com, and Target.

Now it is important to note that everyone's skin is DIFFERENT, so if you decide to try these products, patch test yourself on a small piece of your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Step 1) Day Dissolve Cleansing Balm
For: All Skin Types
What: Soothing, Oil Based Balm that melts into skin, removing makeup as it cleanses.
How: Massage a dime- size amount into dry skin, wet fingertips and continue to massage, then rinse.
Why: I use this every morning and night to take off any remaining makeup residue I may have on that I haven't cleaned off yet.
For those with dry skin, I would suggest using Baby Cheeks All in One Hydrating Milk
Step 2) Weekend Glow Daily Brightening Solution:
For: Dullness, Aging Skin, Problem Skin
What: Brightening Toner that targets trouble spots
How: With reusable Versed cotton pad, swipe across clean, dry face.
Why: I use this every morning and night and have noticed my skin brighten significantly and less trouble spots!
Step 3) Stroke of Brilliance Brightening Serum:
For: Dull, Aging Skin
How: Place 2 drops on clean, and almost dry clean and let it sink in for 2 minutes and massage.
Why: This product paired with the Weekend Glow Daily Brightening Solution has made a huge difference in the appearance of my skin, especially since my skin had gotten so dull from the winter coldness!
Step 4) Zero- G Smoothing Eye Cream:
For: Aging Skin
How: Take pea-size amount and massage under eyes.
Why: I have always struggled with lines under my eyes, but since using this product consistently, I have noticed the appearance of those lines decrease drastically.
Step 5) Dew Point Moisturizing Gel-Cream
For: All Skin Types
What: Moisturizer that keeps bounce in the skin!
How: Smooth peanut-size amount across face
Why: While I usually use CeraVe PM as my moisturizer, and it has done me good, I have noticed using the Versed Moisturizer with the rest of my skincare being Versed has created more a much better end result.
Versed products are affordable, super cute, and not only good for your skin, but good for the environment!
