Posted: Jan 04 2015

It's the post-holidays, and admit it, you have been partying a little too much! (If there is such a thing). Modlook 29 is invested in having you looking your best, and that is not limited to pretty clothing! We we have a lot of! Taking care of yourself from the inside is just as important. Living in Los Angeles, (a city with a lot of fun things to do, and also a lot of pollution) the girls here at Modlook 29 have learned a thing or two about how to keep our skin looking it's best. Here is a list of our favorite products to reverse and prevent breakouts and damage caused by wearing make-up, staying up all night, excessive cold temperatures and more! So you can keep partying into the new year, without it taking a toll on your precious skin. 
What we have learned is that using harsh products is never good on your face. Think about it like this: If your face is already upset, you should be using products that are gentle enough and promote soothing of the skin, instead of drying it out and causing redness on the skin which can lead to more breakouts and uncomfortable pain and stiffness. 
1. Green Tea Or Warm Water With Fresh Lemon
I want to start off with this one before I get into my favorite beauty products. There are a variety of amazing products out there that may benefit your skin, but you must have a good habit of drinking a lot of water to have the best results. Saying hydrated is a basic necessity that you should be incorporating into your daily routine. It keeps your skin elastic, prevents stretch marks, breakouts and dryness. Wake up, and drink a warm cup of green tea and lemon. Drink a warm cup of water with lemon before bed. You can also add some lemon into your water throughout the day. Lemon is fascinatingly effective for even, bright and elastic, healthy looking skin. It helps give you that glow! 
This deep-cleanser will refresh even the most oily, congested skin! Brazened Honey was inspired by traditional Indian Ayurvedic principles, which put emphasis on balance as the foundation to health. Fresh free-range eggs and honey soften, lime oil brightens, spices warm the skin and ground almonds exfoliate. Kaolin clay reaches deep down into pores to pull out dirt and impurities, leaving your skin noticeably brighter and fresher. Our deepest cleansing mask, Brazened Honey is the perfect way to revive sluggish or congested skin. Use it the morning after a night out!

Features

  • Ideal for those with combination to oily skin, or those who want a deep cleansing mask to remove excess oil and impurities. 
  •  Brazened Honey is very stimulating, so if you’re quite sensitive, we recommend navigating towards Catastrophe Cosmetic or Oatifix instead! 
  • Features ginger root extract in Brazened Honey to warm and cleanse the skin.
Sleep the years away with Immortelle Precious Night Cream. This silky smooth, skin-caressing cream works during the night, leaving your skin feeling smoother and softer, and also helps to reinforce the epidermis and to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.

This one is great when your skin is red or upset. Do you remember putting calamine lotion on bug bites as a child?

Use all over your body in the shower or bath for smooth, perfectly soothed skin!
