Beautiful, Badescu Skin

"Putting your best face forward."

TONE IT UP!

It’s been nearly two months into the new (-ish?) year. We’ve passed the obligatory Valentine’s Day landmark, which was more than likely to have been celebrated with one too many chocolate truffles and all things iced red and pink. Should we bother with asking just how you all are doing with your respective New Year’s Resolutions for 2012?

Get off the scale. Eat that one extra chocolate without regret. Do it! Guilty pleasures aren’t sweet for nothing; savor it, enjoy it.

Focus on what makes you feel good. For starters? Start toning.

Toning. It’s essential in the cleansing process, body, mind and soul. We’re talking complexions: toners remove any residual dirt, oil and makeup from the surface of your skin for a truly clean cleanse. If it’s one thing you add on or carry on into the new year, it’s toning.

2012 means a new beginning: start fresh. Literally. Take the Alpha-Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion, for instance. It’s the perfect alcohol-free toner for combination skin that needs a little extra help in texture or the discoloration department. Lemon and grapefruit extracts exfoliate their way for a smoother, brighter, better you!

For an extra bit of cooling, soothing and disinfecting oomph, we say have a fling with our Cucumber Cleansing Lotion. (After all, you never know what it could lead to – it could be love at first cotton ball.) It’s another one of those instant refreshers ideal for combination/oily skin whose T-zone needs a bit of shine control. Let the cucumber extract calm and revive dull skin. Purify those pores!

The point? It’s never too late to make a fresh start.

  1. I usually use seaweed cleansing lotion, but I’ve really started to love the alpha-grapefruit cleansing lotion. It’s gentle yet effective!

    • Josette J.: The Seaweed Cleansing Lotion is definitely one of our most popular, but the Alpha-Grapefruit is just as divine. It’s so lovely in the morning for an instant boost!
