Rituals, we participate in them every day, sometimes knowingly and at other times unknowingly. One of the daily rituals we all participate in is washing our face, and our skincare routine. No matter how little time we spend or how much, it's something we all do.
Recently, I decided to start taking my skincare regimen seriously, especially after becoming lazy during the pandemic and turning the big 40. At first, it was a goal, but quickly turned into a ritual that calmed my mornings and evenings something to look forward to while giving me a sense of calm. The simple steps of caring for myself, taking time for myself, pampering my self felt good.
To really make my ritual something special, I enlisted an amazing line-up of only the best products. Today I'll share them with you and why each makes me feel pampered, taken care of, and calmed.
You would be surprised that this is sold by Stella & Dot, don't let that throw you off. It's been the best luxury skin care system I've used! Within just a few weeks my bumpy skin has smoothed out, my acne scars are fading, and I have an effortless glow. No makeup needed anymore, just tinted moisturizer! The Pure Results Regimen - OILY that I use includes:
- Reveal Biomimetic Peel Pads with LSR10®
- Hydralift Oil Free Moisture Injection Gel with LSR10®
- Youthful Quattro Peptide Face & Eye Serum with LSR10®
- Rebalance Gentle Purifying Cleanser
- Daylight Radiance Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 32 with LSR10® - Tinted Radiance - Tan
I also added on a few extras for specific needs like dry spots, random acne, dark spots and dry lips:

Aromatherapy Associates Rose Shower Oil
Talk about a de-stressor and "Calgon take me away" moment! It's not just oil in a bottle. This will change how you shower!!! You cup a small amount of oil in your hands, inhale deeply and massage on your body. It then transforms into a cleansing milk, and provides aromatherapy.
Warm Damask Rose, known to be a natural anti-depressant, is combined with pure essential oils of Geranium & Palmarosa, working together to create a powerfully therapeutic blend that uplifts your spirits and enriches your skin.
One bottle provides up to 20 shower experiences, and is a steal at $39 a for an 8.4 oz bottle. You can purchase yours HERE.
It's more than a mask, they call it, "a peel in a balm". It's a luxurious pink balm that glides onto the face gently and smells like a burst of roses (heaven). It's been great for resurfacing and brightening my skin. The scent alone calms me and I love how it feels. I feel so luxurious after using it once a week. Click to purchase and learn more.
A Good Sheet Mask
You can go wrong with a midweek or morning sheet mask. My go to has always been Facetory. And I have some great news! We will be updating our Spa & Beauty Section with 6 Facetory sheet masks. Make sure to check the site for updates!
It's a professional facial at home! I swear!!! I wake up in the morning after using this and the results are speechless. There is noticeable improvement in my scaring, acne, and rough/bumpy spots. Healthline does a better job explaining this than I could:
Derma rollers can allow skin care products to penetrate deeper, producing more powerful effects.
I use mine twice a week, no more. This is the recommended amount so you don't cause any additional trama to the skin. You can pick one up on Amazon. I love the Sdara Skincare Derma Roller.
What skincare do you use in your daily ritual? Will you be looking at your skincare regimen differently, I hope so! It's a treat and something so simple that we can give ourselves daily.
