Kate Bryan – How to Start a Skincare Routine
Some people are born with great skin, while others need to work and find the perfect daily habit to achieve flawlessness. Unlike well-pampered celebrities, beauty bloggers are simply everyday people sharing their knowledge in makeup and skincare. This is one of the main reasons why we think they are so relatable.
A blogger that has caught our eye lately is lifestyle and beauty guru Kate Bryan (@k8_smallthings) of The Small Things Blog. Living in North Carolina, Kate posts about beauty, style, recipes, and personal life as a wife and a mom of three.
Her blog’s rise to popularity started with her creative hair tutorials. Kate loves testing and trying out beauty products, which is why she started a blog. Additionally, she’s also known for her bubbly makeup and brilliant skincare recommendations. If there’s anyone we should take beauty notes on, it’s Kate.
Kate’s Simple Skincare Routine for Beginners
This skincare routine only consists of three products. It’s best for first-timers who are just starting to build their skincare regimen and for people who are resetting their regimen with some new products.
Your chosen cleanser should have amazing ingredients that leave your skin clean and moist. Kate recommends a cleanser with green tea extracts. This may be because green tea helps fight visible signs of aging on your skin.
2. Eye Cream
Together with a high-quality cleanser, the perfect eye cream will also help combat skin aging and restore moisture. Some ingredients Kate likes in her eye creams are squalene and marine algae (seaweed). She says that these ingredients in a product are “great to help lock in moisture.”
Eye creams nourish the delicate areas around your eyes. With this, Kate advises you to use your “weakest” finger so that you won’t pull too hard on your skin. You should also apply the cream from your eyebrow to the highest point of your cheekbones.
With moisturizer, the consistency doesn’t matter as long as it properly hydrates your skin. The product can be thick and creamy or slick and watery.
Your skin should be glowing even if you don’t put any makeup on; to know if your moisturizer is doing miracles for you. Kate highlights some of her favorite ingredients: rice, green tea, and algae. They all help restore your skin’s natural radiance.
