The 6-Step Miracle Routine That Has Been Saving Our Skin
It goes without saying that at Follain, we’re total skincare fanatics: We’re constantly trying new products and swapping secrets for getting clear, glowing skin. But with cold, dry weather in full effect over the last couple months, our skin has been in need of some serious TLC.
Maddie Clary, digital educator at Follain, came up with a super-charged, super-healing routine of Follain favorites to help, whether you’re suffering from dryness, dullness, break outs—just about anything. Word got around the office and soon we were all swooning over the effects this routine. We knew we had to share it with the green beauties of the world.
Disclaimer: We realize that with six steps and seven products, this routine is pretty luxe. But even if you don’t have access to every product listed below or the time for such an involved skincare routine, layering a couple of these can work wonders; each is a miracle product in its own right. Rachael Bentley, our in-house graphic designer, saw almost immediate results, after struggling with uncharacteristic breakouts on her cheeks and chin for several weeks.
“I overheard Maddie talking about a ‘miracle routine’ in the office, so I had to ask her about it,” Rachael said. “I followed her instructions one night after work (accompanied by some herbal tea and and an episode of Friends, of course), and my skin felt heavenly after the final step and especially the next morning. My entire face was soft, smooth, bright, and incredibly moisturized. Best of all, the breakouts almost completely vanished over the course of the next week, so the products were working hard even after I took them off. My skin feels back to normal, and I’m psyched!”
Read on for Maddie’s totally non-toxic miracle skincare routine.
With dry hands and a dry face, massage the cleansing balm into your skin. This will melt away your make-up, dirt, and oil from the day. Rinse with warm water and a washcloth.
Pat your face lightly dry. Then with dry hands and a dry face, massage the cleanser all over face and neck. This will help open up your pores to increase the effectiveness of the next step.
Mix these two products together. Layer the mixture on top of the Regenerating Cleanser. The enzymes will eat away at dead skin cells, helping brighten and clear your complexion. Leave on for 5 to 10 minutes (it’s supposed to tingle, so don’t worry!).
After your power mask has done its work, rinse it off with lukewarm water.
Apply your favorite toner.
While your skin is still damp from the toner, apply a small scoop of Blue Cocoon, mixed with a couple drops of Youth Dew. Mix together and gently press into skin.
