Since starting school at Cinta Aveda in July, I have learned so much about each line of skin care products they offer and how to use and manipulate on the skin for better outcomes and to increase the radiance of the skin. After using Aveda for a while at school and also at home, I’ve noticed great changes in my skin—it’s much less dull and oily than before. Before Aveda, I used different brands of skin care. I tried so many, but I never really stuck to one. But I’m glad I’ve chosen Cinta Aveda as a school. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have gotten to try all these great natural products.
My top three favorites that I love and recommend are:
Herbal Clay Mask — When you have those ugly blackheads or whiteheads, mix this with a little of the liquid Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant. Microwave that baby up in a bowl for 30 seconds. Mix it and apply on the face. Wait ten minutes and rinse with warm water. Ta-da! Your face and nose looks clean without having to extract.
Tourmaline Charged Exfoliating Cleanser — OMG, I love this mask! It has made my life so
easy! If you get lazy exfoliating, or even to cleanse your face, this one’s for you. It’s basically a two in one. I recommend it for people who needs a little “oomph” of moisture in their dull-ish dry skin (like mine). For this cleanser, you just wet your face with warm water, take a bit of the cleanser on the tips of your fingers, and lather it on your face in a circular motion. Then rinse and pat dry. Follow with a spritz of the Botanical Kinetics Skin Firming Toner. Now it’s all nice and smooth.
Intensive Hydrating Mask — When you need that extra hydration in your skin, this mask is magic. It has aloe vera, so it works great by itself. This mask doesn’t really need heating up, but I do recommend applying a somewhat thick layer. What I particularly like about this one is that you can apply it and sleep with it overnight, then rinse in the morning. When you wake up, your skin will be quenched like you never stayed up late partying.
I have more favorite ones I’d like to talk about, but these are the basics that I feel everyone needs in their home. So I hope you go out and try these babies out!
