Want to be glowing by Saturday? Try this at home facial tonight:
This works best if you have a prescription retinol at home (Retin-A, Retin-A Micro, Renova, etc), but any cream that has retinol in it will do. Wash your face and wait about a half hour. Apply the retinol – if you are using Retin-A and typically use a pea-sized amount, and use a little extra. Let it soak in for a few minutes. The add a deep hydrating mask or cream over the retinol – we like CeraVe Moisturizing Cream or Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Cream-Mask Face and Eyes. To make sure that your skin is more dewy that flakey the next day, really slather on the moisturizer. Leave it on overnight, and wash it off in the morning (try using a Clarisonic for extra smoothness). Your skin will be glowing and bright all weekend long!
Now, obviously retinols are a long-term skincare commitment, but if your skin needs a little extra boost after a long week, this mask does the trick!
