I used to be a facialist non-believer. I just thought it was a total extravagance; why would I want to spend money to have someone wash my face for me? Then I started going to Heyday after someone gave me a gift card, and I'm a changed woman — or at least my face is, anyway.
The biggest lesson I've learned so far: I don't exfoliate enough. I was shocked when my "skin therapist" (shoutout to Liana the GOAT) told me that I needed to add in a weekly exfoliant to my beauty routine, mainly because it brought back memories of the awful, gritty scrubs I used as a teen. She recommended I try One Love Organics Brand New Day Microderma Scrub and Masque, as it exfoliates more with the ingredients than actual grit.
It starts as a powder, which you shake out into your palm not unlike kitchen spices. I use about a dime size amount and add in a few drops of water before rubbing it over my face in small circles. It smells vaguely of pineapple, which I love, and doesn't feel harsh on the face at all. I noticed a difference in my skin pretty much immediately; as soon as I wipe it off, my face feels the softest it ever has. And a once a week scrub down with a little bit of this stuff has made my face brighter and clearer — no more weird breakouts. Like my girl Liana, it's a total game changer.
One Love Organics Brand New Day Microderma Scrub and Masque, $39, available at One Love Organics.
