Beauty for Breakfast Pt. 24

Processed with VSCOcam with a5 preset

Fall in the Bay Area has been completely unforgiving to my skin this year. I’m not sure if it’s just the way my skin is reacting to the environment around me or if it’s because I’ve been under a little bit more stress than usual, but my skin has taken a turn for the worse. In 2015, I unofficially made it my resolution to do a better job of taking care of my skin and keeping myself hydrated, but turns out drinking 7 glasses of water a day is a tougher challenge than you might think. Since that’s something I’m actively trying to improve, trying to hydrate the rest of my skin is another thing I needed to tackle.

After having one of the best facials ever at the Monterey Plaza Hotel this past summer, I decided that I would pamper myself with a facial once a season just to refresh everything and get it all on the same page. Additionally, I’ve been using this Mario Badescu Enzyme Revitalizing Mask on a weekly basis. Instructions suggest you use it 2-3 times a week for 20 minutes, but since I have pretty sensitive skin, I didn’t want to overdo it and am only using it once a week. As a mask, I apply it pretty lightly and take it off right at 20 minutes – only using it in the evening right before bed. Afterwards, I have to try really hard to not touch my face at all. In the end, it leaves my everything feeling pretty relaxed, moisturized, and fresh! I think the scent helps with that part though. :)

    Hehe Mario Badescu is a fellow countryman. :))
    But tbh, I never quite liked his products. Expensive. I also tried a vitamin c face cream (don’t remember which one) and it was bad….
    I’ve had the same resolution in 2015 :D and I did manage to keep it. It was a pain at first, but now I really like my nighttime routine of pampering. <3
