As many of you know, Ayr Skin Care was founded and is managed by a dedicated mother-daughter team — Kirsten and Fiona. While most of our blogs have been written by Kirsten so far, today, we are proud to introduce our Vice President of Marketing and Operations — Fiona.
We thought it would be good to spotlight how one of our own uses some of the the most popular Ayr Skin Care products in her morning skincare routines. Fiona is 28 years old and has always had dry skin. Here's her day in a nutshell!
Rise and Shine
Every morning, Fiona is awakened by her little pup, Oliver, wiggling all over the bed and telling her it’s time for his breakfast. Once he is taken care of, the next stop is always straight to the bathroom to start her basic morning skincare routine and get ready for the day.
Fiona starts off with either a Calm Facial Bar or Reveal Exfoliating Facial Foam Cleanser (for every other day exfoliation). She always makes sure to treat herself to a mini two minute facial massage while cleansing with these, especially while using the Reveal. Small massages give all the natural fruit acids time to exfoliate properly. After cleansing, Fiona rinses with lots of cool water and then pats her face dry.
After her skin is clean, the next step in her morning skincare routine is a spritz of toner. The one she currently uses is a brand new formula that will be released soon. Until our toner is available to you, it’s best to find one that doesn’t have any alcohol. Alcohol based toners can be too harsh and drying for skin, stripping away natural moisturizers.
Awaken Revitalizing Eye Serum is always next on the list. Fiona dabs it on under her eyes, starting about a half inch away from the “crow's feet” area (the outside corner of each eye) and slowly tapping her fingers in a semi-circle downwards. She never puts any on her eyelid, beneath her eyebrow, or too close to her eye. The skin is thinner and a little more oily here, so it makes it very easy for product to migrate too far and accidentally get into your eyes.
Finally, Fiona finishes up her morning skincare routine with our Pure Moisture Nourishing Face Cream. If the weather is colder or drier, or her skin just needs a little extra touch of moisture, she’ll add a single drop of Virgin Marula Oil to the cream before spreading it on her face.
The best ending for this morning routine is the Dry Body Oil, as it absorbs so quickly and easily. After using it, you’ll feel like you can just get dressed and go — without worrying about residue or stickiness.
After the day is over, Fiona usually rushes home to wash her face. If she has light or no makeup on, it’s easy to jump right into cleansing with the Calm Facial Bar to remove the day’s debris, followed by toner, Awaken Eye Serum, and then 2-3 drops of Virgin Marula Oil.
Sometimes, she takes an extra drop or two of the Marula Oil and spreads it on her neck and décolleté. On days where she has waterproof or stubborn eye makeup on, she just uses a swipe of fractionated coconut oil to remove it before cleansing.
The next morning, she wakes up to softer, healthier looking skin. Now it’s time to rinse and repeat!
