♥Abbey's Skincare Essentials ♥

Do you ever get overwhelmed by the market of skincare products? Every single day, there are hundreds of new trending or viral products that circulate the internet and ad spaces, making it difficult to weed out the ones that are actually beneficial for your skin. Abbey Rose (@abbeyroseskin) is one of our trusted esthetician's here at True Skin Spa, and we're breaking down some of her top picks for products she keeps on hand at all times for her skin's health.

Vitamin E Oil✨

Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that is known for reducing inflammation, advancing the healing process & deeply moisturizing the skin. Many studies show that Vitamin E oil is effective in treating conditions like psoriasis and eczema, making it suitable for all skin types due to it's sensitive nature. Vitamin E oil is an extremely versatile product to add to to your routine. Abbey often uses it as a base for facial massage, including Gua Sha & exfoliation by dermaplaning to achieve glowing results.

Ice Roller/Chilled Facial Roller✨

Cold therapy is extremely beneficial for many reasons, including acne treatment, lymphatic drainage (depuffing), tightening and firming the skin, and calming the nervous system. When cold compresses are applied the skin, it constricts the pores and stimulates blood flow, keeping your nourishing products in the skin and keeping debris out. Abbey uses an ice roller every morning and most nights after applying skin care products and before SPF.

Pure Rose Water Spray✨

Rose water is full of antioxidants, and extremely gentle to the skin. It helps to bring the skin's PH back into balance, which makes it very effective as a gentle facial toner. It also has a softening & hydrating effect on the skin. Abbey loves to use rose water as a setting spray for light makeup days, and even in her hair & on her face throughout the day for a quick and easy refresh.

Oil-Based Cleanser✨

Using cleansers with harsh detergents too frequently can disrupt your skin’s barrier function and cause dryness, redness, blemishes, etc. to appear or worsen. Oil cleansers are able to cleanse the skin while nourishing the barrier and adding moisture back into the skin. Despite popular belief, oil cleansers are suitable for all skin types including oily skin, and will not be the cause of breakouts. Abbey recommends strictly using an oil cleanser in the morning when the skin is not in need of a deep clean, and as your first cleanse in the evening to gently remove makeup before using a stronger cleanser.

Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Masks✨

Masking 1-2 times a week can immensely improve your skincare results, but with so many on the market it's hard to know which one might be the right choice. Hyaluronic Acid is a powerful hydrating agent, helping your skin to better absorb moisture & serums to give that plump, glowing result. It’s sensitive enough to be used on most skin types & is especially beneficial during dry winter weather when the skin is in need of extra hydration. Abbey loves using H.A. sheet masks at least once a week to keep a healthy, hydrated complexion.

Ceramide Barrier Serum✨

Ceramides & lipids are ESSENTIAL in repairing & maintaining the health of your skin barrier. A disrupted skin barrier = all kinds of skin issues, and it is unfortunately very easy to disrupt. These specific serums deliver a therapeutic dose of both ceramides & lipids to the skin, which are the building blocks of a strong skin barrier. Abbey uses a ceramide serum every day, sometimes twice a day to maintain the skin barrier health and strength. It is even more important to use after chemical exfoliation days when the skin is more vulnerable to free radical damage.

We hope this information helps you find some products that are helpful in routine and that you can trust.
