I keep things pretty simple and tend to stick to the products that work best for my skin. I have allergies and my skin is sensitive so I use 1. Neutrogena face wash in the shower and 2. Larenim's new facial cleaner (Argan Purifying Cleanser). It's so light and refreshing.
In conjunction with these facial products I am completely obsessed with 3. Larenim's Bamboo Skin Polish. In just one minute I can treat my skin to a spa like facial. Not only does it leave my skin glowing but it diminishes blemishes in a day or two. You can use this scrub daily too. Most scrubs can only be used once or twice a week.
I always carry 4. Tea Tree astringent pads with me. They're great for in between showering, or after the gym.
When it comes to make up I can't live without mascara and a lip gloss. My favorites include 5. Mineralash by Larenim because you can add layer after layer with no clumping. I really like a few drug store brands ....when they say longer, thicker, "Illegal Length" I'm a sucker. A good mascara will make your eyes pop and there's not a dire need for much more.
Before applying a good lip gloss I dab on a little 6. Aquaphor for extra moisturizing. Anything for extra hydration wether it's my face or body, it can't hurt. I carry several colors in shades of neutrals, plums and a pouty pink color. I prefer a simple look for the most part or if I want to step it up I go for a smokey sexy look.
Sometimes I experiment with an array of beautiful 7. Larenim Eye Shadows, many that double as liners but my day to day routine is making sure my skin feels fresh and clean. I think it's important to let your skin breath and not pile on layers of unneeded protect products if you don't have to.
Luxury products do not mean luxury prices. You just have to be a smart shopper and take the time do a little research. If you feed your body with healthy stuff you should do the same with your skin.
I've known Kirsten Corcoran for over eight years now. She has introduced me to great products but also educated me in the arena of what makes products 100% pure ...so many brands list a few natural ingredients and slap the word mineral or organic yet it's still loaded with toxins. Your skin deserves the best so give it just that.
