For anyone else currently dealing with self-iso skin issues, keep reading ‘cause Australian beauty guru Zoë Foster Blake is dishing out her best tips. While lamenting about the perils being holed-up inside on the skin, the Go-To Skin Care founder took to Instagram to demo her personal at-home facial routine and share how she’s tackling her skin “wigging out.”
Introducing her mini at-home facial regimen on Instagram, Zoë says:
"Skin can start to get a bit bitchy with all this constant insidesies. Dry, flaky, spotty, dull, annoying. If you take 25 mins once a week for a deep clean and nourishment party, you will see a difference. Your face will get the TLC it needs, and you will get the glow you deserve.”
#1 / Double cleanse to freshen your face
Foster kicks off by explaining that because she’s wearing makeup and an SPF product, she’s first going to be double cleansing her skin. If you’re starting with bare skin, cleansing once is sufficient.
Zoë’s products of choice? A Go-To Posh Cloth in combination with the Go-To Skin Care Fancy Face Nourishing Oil Cleanser which she says is “excellent for people with imbalanced skin.” She then follows up with Go-To Skin Care Properly Clean Facial Cleanser saying “your skin will be so clean after this, you won’t know yourself.”
#2 / Remove dead skin using exfoliating pads
Up next? Exfoliation. Foster uses the Go-To Skin Care Exfoliating Swipeys “to get rid of dead skin that’s hanging around and even everything out.” Some other exfoliating options we love are the Naturally Serious Get Even Cold Pressed Peel Pads and First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads.
#3 / Purify with a deep-cleaning mask
Next up is a clay or purifying mask “to draw out impurities.” Foster says she uses one of these at a minimum of once per week and again gently removes it using a cloth as she did with her cleanser.
#4 / Nourish and hydrate with a mask
Foster explains that once you’ve deep-cleaned the skin you need to nourish it and “put some stuff back in” – primarily hydration. Her fave nourishing treatment is the Aspect Probiotic Mask but we also recommend the Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask and the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask.
#5 / Finish off with your skin care
To cap off the routine and continue adding hydration, Foster applies PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum followed by Go-To Skin Care Face Hero Face Oil then Go-To Skin Care Very Useful Face Cream. And there you go; we'll bet your skin has gone from 'bitchy' to bright just like that.
