"There's nothing that feels better than cleaning your pores," says Gucci, who is mid-session with Dermaflash's whirring, at-home ultrasonic device, which delivers deeply gratifying exfoliation and extraction in the privacy (and safety!) of your own bathroom. It's February, after all, "that time of year when I feel like my skin needs a little reset."
When a visible boost is needed, Gucci makes time for a 10-minute clean beauty ritual that combines hydrating face creams, plumping serums, and soothing essences with stimulating facial massage and exfoliation. "I'm never a big fan of the skin feeling stripped. Everything I look for is active and soothing," says Gucci, who starts her routine with Skin Design's Face Bath balm cleanser and finishes with Tammy Fender's Roman Chamomile Tonic before moving on to her favorite Westman Atelier no-makeup makeup staples.
The extra investment in your pre-makeup canvas can be transformative when you can find the time. "On days I do take this many steps, it feels more supple, firmer, brighter, tighter, and more hydrated." From there, says Gucci, Vital Skin Foundation or Lit Up Highlight Stick melt into skin, correct any lingering redness and continuing the work of those active skincare benefits.
