We all have a skincare regime that we follow day-in and day-out. However, we find that it's helpful to hear about the experiences of customers, and even our staff, and what they find helpful. Today, Megan, who is a big voice at Sally B's, clues you in on how she changed her routine to welcome in Fall. Megan is in her early 30's and has 2 young children. Her life is very full and she is a great juggler of business and personal duties (though it should be noted that she can't actually juggle). Here is her routine.
Growing up on the West Coast of Florida I never had to worry about moisture. There was always more than enough moisture in the air and my skin was rarely dry (also I was young!). When I moved to Atlanta, where there are seasons, I had to quickly become conscious about keeping my skin hydrated.
Fall is a magical time in Atlanta – leaves are changing and temperatures are as close to perfect as they can be. But amidst the beautiful weather, my seemingly normal skin has become itchy, dry, and even a little cracked.
When Fall showed its first signs, I got lucky that it coincided with Sally putting the finishing touches on B Quenched (check out my official sample from the first batch in the pic below). I, along with the rest of the Sally B’s team, began testing it out and was amazed at how quickly my skin changed. It became softer almost over night.
B Quenched is officially in my Fall and Winter routine, but it’s not the only product I rely on. Here’s my daily routine:
I start the day by washing my face with Tamanu Luxury Facial Cleanser followed with a few drops of Peptide Booster Serum. It doesn’t take long to absorb, and when it does, I put Luxury Mineral Foundation, Get Even Finishing Powder, or both. It just depends on what my day has in store. Recently, my 1.5-year-old daughter is by my side using her very own Sally B’s brush on her face, though she hasn’t figured out that her makeup container is empty.*
At some point during the morning I sip a cup of coffee to help jump start my day and condition my lips. Instead of milk, I add coconut oil to my coffee. It cuts the bitterness of coffee and makes my lips softer than ever.
DURING THE DAY
These months especially, I can’t go anywhere without a Lip Yummie. A Mints In Harmony Lip Yummie to be exact. I keep one in my purse, makeup drawer, and even my car. I also keep my Natural Buff Cuticle Bar in my car. An odd place, sure, but stopped at red lights is a great place to moisturize your cuticles.
Healing Hand Butter is another mainstay of my day. I have a jar of it on my desk and I apply it several times a day.
Like the morning, I start by washing my face with Tamanu Luxury Facial Cleanser. About 2-3 times a week I follow up Fruit Acid Toner for an extra deep clean and to exfoliate any dead skin. Then, every night, I apply a mixture of Carrot Facial Dream Cream and Antioxidant Skin Boost; one adds moisture and the other works to neutralize free radicals that may have formed throughout the day.
Right before bed I add B Quenched to my face, B Soothed to my lips, and Healing Hand Butter (and socks) to my feet. I let these three work their moisture magic while I sleep.
While this is my routine now, it is ever changing. As the days become colder and dryer I’ll add additional products, like an additional moisturizer in the morning and regular B Green Mud Masks.
