Pamela’s Skincare Routine with Naked Klay
Hello Gorgeous Community!
I am a SUPER sensitive young adult... Yes, I’m not just sensitive in the emotional department but also in the skin department. I’ve learnt that my skin needs and deserves extra love and care.
I‘m excited to share my skincare routine with you – I hope it will answer some questions you may have about your skin and skincare routine.
My skin type has always leaned towards the dry side. I would often get eczema breakouts on my face. Until I reached 25 my skin decided to shake things up a bit. It went from being predominantly dry to adopting a more combination nature, complete with the classic oily T-zone. I also became acquainted with the occasional unwanted visitor – adult hormonal acne!
I have made a conscious choice to avoid synthetic skincare. They would irritate my sensitive skin even more and would often be the culprit to my skin’s melodramatic performances. Ever since making the switch to natural skincare actives and ingredients my skin has finally found its happy place! I rarely get an eczema breakout and I can confidentially say that I love my skin!
Here’s my daily skincare routine using Naked Klay – Ancient Herbal Medicine for the Skin.
P.s Dani and I personally formulate every product to ensure that they are not just clinically proven and effective, but incredibly compatible with even the most sensitive skin types. Our inspiration? Our own experiences with finicky skin. We’ve crafted these products with love and care, and we can’t wait to share them with you.Step 1: CLEANSE
Hydrating Body Wash
I start my routine by double cleansing. The first cleanser will break down any makeup, remove dirt and excess oils from the day and clean your skin. The second cleanse will address your skin type or concern and should have ingredients to hydrate, smooth or exfoliate and treat acne.
I use our Hydrating Body Wash, a product crafted with the whole family in mind. It’s designed to be versatile, allowing you and your kids (if you have them!) to cleanse your entire body including the face, especially when time is poor. This body wash is formulated with natural ingredients like Prickly Pear, Bamboo, Soybean Oil, and Vitamins E and B5. It not only cleanses deeply but also nourishes and protects the skin.
But stay tuned… as we have an exciting range of dedicated cleansers coming very soon.Step 2: EXFOLIATE/ MASK
Our Clay Masks are a game-changer, offering you a 2-in-1 solution that will simplify your skincare routine and save you time. With their built-in exfoliation properties, you can multitask while pampering your skin. Imagine brushing your teeth or styling your hair while the mask works its magic, knowing you're reaping all the fantastic benefits. When it's time to rinse it off, you'll not only have beautifully refreshed skin but also the bonus of exfoliation – two essential steps accomplished in one go! Now, that's what I call efficient skincare.
I use the 2 in 1 Hydrating Exfoliating Mask – Pink Clay at least 2 times a week. It's my pre-event skincare secret weapon! The Pink Clay Mask works its magic by instantly hydrating and prepping my skin, giving it that plump, radiant glow that's an absolute must before applying makeup
The 2 in 1 Detoxifying Exfoliating Mask – Charcoal Clay I use about once a week for a good detox…. usually on a Friday night or over the weekend. I also like to spot treat! Whenever those pesky hormonal acne breakouts decide to throw a tantrum, I turn to the Charcoal Mask for some targeted TLC. It's my go-to solution to calm those angry breakouts down.
Step 3: SERUM
Our Expose -Balancing Serum the ultimate go-to serum for balancing my skin... however I often indulge in the art of serum layering. It might sound like a lot, but trust me, it's a skincare technique I learned during my time working in the skincare retail industry, and it's a game-changer.NOTE: Always apply the serum you want to reap the most benefits from FIRST. Gently pat it into your skin and wait for about 30 seconds, letting it work its magic. And for me, the second layer of serum is our Naked –Anti-Ageing Serum, I am a BIG believer in preventive skincare. It’s like an investment in your skin’s future. The beauty of our Naked –Anti-Ageing Serumis that its versatile for all ages, due to the hero ingredient Bakuchiol. It’s natures alternative to Retinol, without the side effects.
Step 4: MOISTURISE
Let's talk about our incredible Clarifying Moisturiser.I use this morning and night. Sometimes I opt for our Hydrating Moisturiser in the colder months if I’m feeling my skin wants that extra hydration boost. Our Clarifying Moisturiser is infused with powerful medicinal herbs that deliversdelicate balance without compromising your skin's essential oils, which are crucial for its overall health and vitality.Step 5: OIL
My favourite part of my skincare routine. Our Beauty – Empress Oil is so divine in texture I feel great every time I put this on. It’s not pore clogging, it looks fantastic under makeup (the glow effect) and it smells absolutely amazing! This Beauty Oil does everything all in one. It has 5 nutrient dense oils, active medicinal extracts inspired by Chinese Medicine and natural Vitamin E. A key hero ingredient in this oil is Snow Mushroom – a vegetal alternative to Hyaluronic Acid; clinically proven to hold more moisture properties than the famous Hyaluronic Acid! Another hero active ingredient that I love is Marrubium; a herbaceous plant that protects your skin from toxic air pollutants that can premature ageing. I know my skin is intensely hydrated and protected with this oil.OTHER: SKIN TEA
As mentioned previously, I'm deeply committed to preventative/proactive skincare. With my background as a chemist, I understand that our skin's health is intricately connected to our internal well-being. While topical skincare plays a crucial role, it's only one piece of the puzzle. At Naked Klay, we firmly believe in a holistic approach to skincare.
Every day, I personally incorporate a blend of our Dry Skin Tea and Anti-Ageing Skin Tea into my routine to maximize the benefits for my skin. They both have incredible skin benefits. If I am feeling more on the drier side – I find myself drinking the Dry Skin Tea more regularly.
