Relaxation / Recovery Day

We all have those days where is is nearly impossible to get out of bed. We all know those, the weekend got the best of you days. This is how I relax & rover from weekends like that.

I wash my face using my everyday face wash, Clean&Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser. I really like this cleanser, it has small beads in it that helps scrub your skin and get rid of the germs from the night. The citrus scent really helps wake you up in the morning. One tip, if you use this you must moisturize your face afterward, this face wash is very drying. 

I then like to use the Biore face / nose pore strips. They help pull out your blackheads and help clean out your pores. I've been using these for years and they've worked great. You should not use them everyday as they can be harsh on your skin. I recommend using them at most once a week. When placing the face strip on your forehead make sure you don't stick it on your eyebrows, you really don't want to rip out half of your eyebrow. Also be careful pull off the nose strip since it is close to your eyes. 

I like to really deep clean my face, I use the Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask. I like these because they're quick and easy to use. All you have to do is wet your face, apply the mask, wait one minute,& rinse off. This mask is a little different then normal masks. It doesn't harden or dry on your face, it is also water activated so the more you put water on your face the hotter the mask will become. 

I then brush my teeth using my Crest Glamorous White line. I use the toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, & white strips. I don't use the white strips everyday. I've really been loving using all of these and I can very clearly see the difference in my teeth. 

During the week I tend to keep my makeup very simple, I go for a "no makeup, makeup look". Which basically means I keep my makeup very simple just accenting my features.
