How to Achieve a Flawless Face from Start to Finish

I often get asked how I achieve glowing flawless skin. For the record no one has perfect skin, not even me. A flawless appearance takes diligence, patience and the correct products for success. This holiday season you too can achieve the Goldfaden glow by following a few easy steps.

Exfoliate

Keep it simple. Two to three times a week is all it takes. If you’re a member of the ‘aggressive exfoliator’s’ club and your skin can handle it, then everyday is okay too! We suggest having both a physical and enzymatic exfoliator in your regimen. They serve different purposes and should never used on the same day.

***An enzymatic or chemical exfoliator can come in the form of a peel, pad or sheet mask. All this means is that you are exfoliating with an acid.

***Acids come in two types, AHA and BHA. AHA acids are glycolic, lactic, malic and citric and are beneficial for the surface maintenance. BHA is beta hydroxy/salicylic acid.

***AHA acids exfoliate dead skin cells, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, reverses the appearance of sun damage, hydrates and makes skin look and feel firmer/tighter.

***BHA acid targets the surface but also works inside the pores. BHA contains calming properties so it is good for sensitive skin and those who suffer from redness.

Then there are the physical exfoliators – the scrubs. Physical or manual exfoliation result on smooth, clear and even toned skin. For an even canvas to apply makeup to scrub away with our cult favorite Doctor’s Scrub. Not only will you look flawless with makeup but your skin will be clearer, smoother and more even without makeup!

 

 

Smooth & Fill

Don’t have time to run to the dermatologist, don’t fret – it causes more wrinkles! Needle-less is our targeted line smoothing serum that perfect for those stubborn lines and wrinkles. Apply this powerhous
e serum, which is full of hyaluronic acid and peptides, to clean troubled areas for an instant result.

 

De-puff & Brighten

A crucial step is to hydrate and brighten the eye area, especially if wearing makeup. The eyes are the focal point of the face and they need to be hydrated. Thin skin under and above the eyes can age a person, so always apply one pump of Bright Eyes under and above each eye. We do not formulate with silicone, so you wont experience any pilling of slippage when applying makeup over.

 

Hydrate & Glow

There is a trick to getting the Goldfaden glow. Apply Fleuressence Oil all over the face by pressing a dropper full firmly into the skin. While the skin is still moist with oil apply a mixture of skin primer and foundation.

***Mix a pump of primer and a pump of foundation (my preference is GEE Beauty) on the top of your hand and use a kabuki brush to apply all over the face. The Fleuressence oil will add extra radiance to the skin and result in a dewy plump appearance.

 

Dust & Radiate

Finish off the look with GEE Beauty Soft Focus Powder. Dust across the hairline and on the top of the cheeks (where sun would naturally hit) and then along the jaw line and onto the neck. For extra radiance at night or anytime, add RMS light luminizer to the top of cheekbones and on the cupids bow (that little indentation above the lip).

Glow baby, glow!
