August is my least favorite month, there I said it . It gets super hectic with all the preparations for the new school year and it’s practically impossible to enjoy anything outdoors in a three digit weather.
So I decided to dedicate this month to indulge in my own At-Home Spa Day. Here are some of my favorite products that will make my experience more pleasant with professional results.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Pro Facial Steamer:
Dr. Dennis Gross’ Pro Facial Steamer is the ideal first step in starting off your self-care with dewy, hydrated, purified, and soothed skin. Along with enhancing all of the rich benefits in your skin care routine, it aids in prepping and priming your complexion for any kind of application, absorption, and exfoliation in the products used.
The amount of time you spend in front of the steamer will also depend on your skin. For those with dry skin try steaming for no more than 12 minutes, combination no more than 15 minutes, and those with oily skin no more than 20 minutes. Finish steaming and start your “Me time” off the right way with supple skin, ready for application!
