Beauty Routines.

Now that I have gotten the evil hormones out of my system, my skin is really starting to clear up (knock on wood). But I recently found myself having to come up with three separate beauty routines...

One for morning. One for night. One for before Bikram class.

Morning Beauty:

I needed something gentle, but cleansing. I don't want my skin to be dried and flaky when I put on my make-up.


  • Fresh Lemon Oil Cleansing Balm
  • Blue Flame Purifying Toning Mist
  • Philosophy The Present

Night Beauty:

I can be a little more aggressive before going to bed. No worries of flaky skin that people will see. I use a toner with alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and an exfoliating moisturizer with salicylic acid.


  • Phycisians Choice of Arizona Exfoliating Cream
  • Fresh Lemon Oil Cleansing Balm
  • Physicians Choice Of Arizona Smoothing Toner
  • Philosophy Hope In A Bottle

Bikram Beauty:

I've learned that it's best to take my make up off before class starts. That way, I'm just sweating body water and not body water mixed with make up. After class, I just rinse my face with water.


  • Fresh Soy Cleanser
  • Astara Blue Flame Purifying Toning Mist

Oh Fresh cleansers...I'm curious, how long have you used them and do they work well?

Since hitting my 30's I've been searching for a good cleanser for my skin and a good eye cream too. I've noticed lines around my eyes but all the eye creams out there seem awfully heavy and old lady like.

I really like the Fresh cleansers. They don't feel like they're drying anything out after I use them. They're gentle. And organic, from what I understand.

For my eyes, once a week I dab Creme de la mer around them... But just my eyes. That stuff is way to heavy for me to use on my face. A container of creme de la mer has lasted me over a year now.
