The Ultimate Beauty Routine for Glowing Skin from Allison McNamara
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
I think that every person needs this. I’ve been using it for more than five years, but it’s one of the brand’s tried-and-true products. I use this as a toner after I cleanse, but it doesn’t strip the skin of moisture. It has a minty-citrus scent that’s super refreshing. It’s the perfect skin pick-me-up to use throughout the day. If you think your makeup is getting a little cakey, spray it on and it’s the perfect refresher. It’s amazing. I have one in my car, my purse…everywhere.
Tata Harper Clarifying Mask
Easily one of my favorite products. I’ll use a mask two or three times a month when my skin feels dehydrated or clogged, or after I’ve been flying. This mask pulls out the impurities and makes my skin feel balanced and clear. I think people are over-masking these days. Don’t mask every day!
MARA Universal Face Oil
I was sick of oils and serums that just didn’t do enough and am so proud of what we created. Our hero ingredient is Moringa oil, which is amazing and incredibly nutrient-rich. It’s packed with 46 anti-oxidants and fabulous for your skin. I use it instead of a cream moisturizer, morning and night, because it addresses hydration and anti-aging all in one. Sometimes I will add a retinol or glycolic treatment in to the routine if I feel that I need it. But if you made me pick one product for the rest of my life for glowing skin, it’s this.
Jade rollers are amazing. They’re a Chinese tradition that help with lymphatic drainage, like sinus issues or puffiness. They say it helps with wrinkles, but I haven’t seen too much evidence of that. For me, it helps with migranes…or hangovers! I like to jade roll after I have some oil on my face and will do it while I’m watching TV. Just jade away!
Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40
I include a sunscreen in my beauty routine because I’m so frickin’ pale. Really, I can get sunburned just being in my car. But sunscreen is so important for everyone. I find that people don’t use sunscreen because they haven’t found one that they like or it can be hard to remember. I love this Unseen Sunscreen because it goes on so nicely after your skin care products and before makeup, and it’s not chalky. They also have an oil and a stick that I also really love.
