If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know my love for Karee Hays – she’s my fairy skin mother. Seriously. I met her a couple of years ago when Steve gave me a her famous Glow Facial for Christmas and I haven’t looked back since. We decided that it would be fun to “get together” to tonight, shave our face (yes you read that right) and do a little nightly skincare routine! Her products will seriously change how you treat your skin – it’s like she’s a magician. Plus, don’t get me started on her koji pads, my skin has never looked better.

THE PRE CLEANSE
The first thing we did was wash our face, we started with the Hyrda Cleanser, we put a lot of things that have oil on our skin. Karee’s first step is always a pre cleansing wash. Pre Cleanse is the first step to cleansing, we need to pre cleanse to break down everything and our normal cleanser won’t do that. Put it on your skin as it and have at it. She is also a big fan of a double cleanse.
You know when you shave your legs and you exfoliate first? That’s exactly what you want to do with your face, exfoliate so you can get a closer shave. We started with this to exfoliate and sometimes, Karee will add a little revision black mask to this step as well. Then we were ready to take the shave!
2 -3 times a week
Will you grow a beard?
First we mist. This spring water is better because it’s calming and one of the few that balance the PH. We’ll start with a foam cleanser to lather our face up. Rarely do you see him with fine vertical lines, and it’s because they shave their face everyday. We start at the top of our cheek bone and just really go at it – BUT BE CAREFUL. Watch your brows, watch your hair line. The truth about the razor, use a separate razor – and we love a mens razor, but stay away from the ones with a moisturizing strip because they breathe bacteria. Finish with a thick layer of the Avene Spray water.
The benefits: your products will go on better, you’re reduce fine lines, you exfoliate,
Once a week
Now is the perfect time to do an chemical peel. We’re starting with the Sheer Shine peel. Karee believes in giving people the tools they need to succeed at home. With this peel, start at the top of you forehead and work you way down. Be very careful around your eyes but also make sure you get right under. We typically do this once a week. Go all down your decollate and then down your back. Now, we put the peel on. After you put it everywhere, I take my hands and start rubbing it in everywhere. Sheer Shine is a lighter peel. We let it sit for 3 -5 minutes and now we spray again with our Avene Water and now we use our Retexurizing Pads to wipe away.
(secret tip, the Revision Vitamin K will help with bruising)
So, we start with 3 pumps of peptide gel mixed with the black mask. If you think about this, when you add peptide with water, the thinner it is – the deeper it can get. The skin is like a sponge, it can only absorb so much at a time. This is the best black mask, really for anyone- even your teenagers! Let’s mist one more time, grab your sponge and let’s get that sucker off. Then, yep you guessed it mist.
THE NIGHT ROUTINE
We started with the DEJ Eye cream and then we head right to the NECK – yes, you can’t forget that! Nectifirm is where it’s at (Revision code for the gift with purchase, a Nectifirm sample, CODE: NECK with a purchase of $100 or more thru 5.14.) Then we use the DEJ Night and amp it UP (since we don’t have anyone to see) – rub it all in and then, yes that’s right – mist it up. Now, everyone google lymphatic drainage, so we can drain all the puffiness from our face. I got my tool from SKN Nashville. Then I add a sleeping lip mask and it’s amazing. Then Karee adds lanolin under her eyes, yes seriously- she has all the secrets.
