EyesByErica’s guide to Perfect Skin
Step 1: Makeup Remover
It is extremely important to properly remove your makeup every single day to prevent breakouts and makeup build up that can make it difficult to apply makeup in the future for a flawless, polished finish.

Step 2: Facial Mask
I love facial masks! I recommend using a facial mask at least once a week to achieve optimal perfect skin texture. Facial masks can target skin concerns such as oiliness, dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, etc. And can really assist in repairing the skin to your desired skin appearance.

Step 3: Face Exfoliator
One of the number 1 keys to perfect skin is removing the dry skin from your face to smooth the texture on your face. This is important, especially if you want to wear foundation and makeup daily, you will really want your products to lay smoothly on your skin. And the way to achieve smooth skin is by removing the dry skin from your face with a face exfoliator. I only recommend using an exfoliator 2-3 times a week in your skincare routine.

Step 4: Facial Cleanser
Cleaning your skin daily is essential to healthy, radiant looking perfect skin! You should really be cleaning your skin morning and night with a cleanser that removes all of the environmental residue that is built up from the toxics and micro pollutants that you can not even see in the air. I recommend a facial cleanser that foams and leaves the skin hydrated and doesn’t strip the skin of its essentials oils.

Step 5: Toner
I LOVE FACE TONERS! A lot of skin care enthusiasts do not talk about toners in their daily skin care routine, but this is a step that I would never skip! Toners prepare your skin for the moisturizer and smooth the skin’s texture that will assist in your makeup looking more flawless! And it also balances the skins Ph levels which can reduce the over production of oil; which is great for us, oily skin type makeup lovers!
Step 6: Speciality Serums
Serums are amazing when you have more skin concerns and you want even more results from your traditional moisturizer. There are currently SO MANY skin serums on the market that can reduce the pores, oil production, fine lines and wrinkles; the list can go on FOREVER! But most clients that I encounter want to look younger for longer! So I highly recommend investing in a serum that targets one of your major skin concerns and use it EVERYDAY for the best results!

Step 7: Eye Cream
The eye area is the most common facial feature that show aging! SCARY, right??? And the eyes are the most visual body part looked at among the human population! So it you want younger looking skin and especially eyes; eye cream is essential to your skincare routine. I recommendation an eye cream that is hydrating, reduces fine line and wrinkles and depuffs.

Step 8: Moisturizer
Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! This is the number one key to healthy looking skin! You MUST use a moisturizer on your face daily: day and night! If you are exposed to sun, I recommend using a moisturizer during the day that has SPF to protect your skin from UV/UVA exposure. Hydrated skin can assist in makeup/foundation applications looking smoother and fresher. And if you have oily skin, I recommend using an oil-free lotion that hydrates the skin and evenly disperses the oil production in the face to areas that are needed.
Step 9: Face Spray
This step is optional for skin care lovers! If you like SUPER hydrated skin and want a healthy glow, I recommend using a face mist that you can spray on you face during your skin care routine and after your makeup is complete to give your skin a fresh, dewy glow!
