Skincare 101

by Sarah

We strongly believe in the importance of great skin care, and how a daily regime is crucial for keeping skin healthy and happy. Before opening Room 152, and prior to my stint as an archaeologist, I worked as an esthetician (still can’t make that connection between my three career choices lol). For a year and a half, I preached the four daily-do’s … cleanser, toner, serum and moisturizer. Above all, you need these in your life twice a day, everyday! Trust me, the results are outstanding! Not only are you helping to protect a portion of your body’s largest organ, you can visibly see the results. Tired, dull skin?… gone! Youthful glow?… you bet! I have kept with this ritual all through my 20’s and 30’s, rarely missing a single day. When people discover my age, their shock cracks me up. It’s satisfying in a way, since I’ve worked long and hard for it, and it sure has paid off!

Two of my absolute (take-my-arm-but-don’t-take-these) favourite products are Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream, and Eminence Citrus & Kale Potent C + E Serum. I’ve tried MANY different products, and have NEVER had the results that these two have given me. Now that I’m in my late 30’s, I’m far more committed to fighting the good fight with those pesky fine lines. I’ve found that whenever I’ve strayed from, or run out of one of these products, my skin starts to show it in a very sad way. So I’ve learned not to, and will stick to them like glue! With a high antioxidant content, as well as citrus fruit oils to tone and refresh, Citrus and Kale Serum helps with improving skin’s hydration and elasticity for a younger looking appearance. Magic Night Cream works over night to firm and improve elasticity, making the skin appear far more smooth and supple. It’s like an over night face lift in a jar!

So there it is, my secret’s revealed! The key to beautiful skin is not just good genes, it’s maintenance. It’s sometimes difficult to stick to such a strict routine, especially after those long, hard days where it’s more appealing to stay stuck to the couch then to drag your feet to the bathroom sink. But I can say with absolute certainty, you’ll thank yourself tomorrow!
