  • (laughs)

  • (beep)

  • - Peace and blessings, family.

  • Andra Day here, I am gonna show you

  • what I do to get ready for bed.

  • (calm music)

  • Before I start this, I just wanna say,

  • to be quite honest with you, I actually really don't sleep.

  • I don't sleep much at all, so this isn't really

  • a like get ready to go to bed with me thing,

  • this is more like if you don't sleep,

  • here's how to look like you did, honey.

  • So the first thing we're gonna do

  • is wash our face, cleanse, I mean,

  • I'm not really doing a makeup removing thing here,

  • but I'll make up for it by doing a mask.

  • So I'm just gonna cleanse my skin.

  • I love this cleanser, this is called Organiclear.

  • This is actually my friend's line.

  • I didn't think I would like it, and I thought

  • once I tried it, I would just have to like avoid him

  • and be like, "Damn, I really don't like this,

  • "and it's gonna kill me to tell him."

  • But this cleanser is actually so, so, so, so good,

  • and I've put a lot of people onto it.

  • So we're gonna start by washing our visage, honey.

  • I just wet my hands first, and then lather it up.

  • You're supposed to be like gentle with your face

  • and around your eyes and all that stuff and whatever,

  • but like I'm just,

  • just do as I say, not as I do.

  • Bam, okay?

  • This cleanser's so great 'cause like I said,

  • it's organic, it's vegan.

  • All the ingredients in it are clean and non-toxic, so.

  • So the next step we're gonna do, and so I'm doing this

  • for you, I don't do this all the time,

  • this mask in particular, and it's just by The Body Shop.

  • It's called Himalayan Charcoal.

  • This thing is ridiculous, you exfoliate

  • as you put it on, so you scrub, you're like heating

  • up the face, it dries down, the clay sucks out

  • all of the toxins and it has a cooling effect as well too

  • that kinda like refines and tightens everything,

  • but here we go, you'll see.

  • Okay, this mask is actually messy as hell, honestly,

  • but it takes all the nasties away.

  • I'm using my hands because again,

  • you're trying to exfoliate as well.

  • So sometimes I just add a little extra in the areas

  • where I need a little extra pore cleansing and refining.

  • And I'm gonna leave that on til it dries down

  • and I can't wait, I'm gonna come back and show you guys,

  • I'm probably actually gonna keep this mask on

  • for like 30 minutes, but when I come back and it dries,

  • so you see how it starts to dry down like this,

  • but once it's completely dry, then you can actually

  • see it start to suck the oil out of your skin,

  • so I'll show you guys when I come back, love y'all.

  • Okay y'all, I'm back.

  • So the mask completely dried down

  • and as you can see around my nose,

  • like my T-zone area mainly, all of those little dots

  • are all the like oil and dirt that it's pulling

  • out of my skin, so I'm about to rinse this off

  • so you can see what my skin looks like

  • once I'm done with this mask.

  • (water runs)

  • Let's see what we're working with, let's see.

  • Boop, boop, boop.

  • And I'm gonna do one more cleansing step.

  • Plus I actually wanna introduce you guys,

  • in case you don't know about it already,

  • Donkey's Milk soap.

  • Mm-mm-mm, the fatty acids in Donkey's Milk

  • is so good for your skin.

  • Actually I got into it because I read

  • a story of Cleopatra, she used to bathe

  • in donkey's milk and I was like,

  • "Honey, that sounds luxurious, so I need to know what's up."

  • And I'm like an all-over lather type of person

  • so the whole like, just get your cheeks

  • and don't do your eyes, I don't know,

  • I just feel like this is faster, so.

  • Okay.

  • My towel has my mask all over it.

  • I have like my regular regimen, and then sometimes

  • it likes to be varied a little bit,

  • so this is like my full extensive regimen,

  • and one of the big parts for me is cleaning,

  • I have to cleanse and clarify my skin,

  • so I do even after doing those two different face washes

  • and that (laughs) that face mask,

  • detoxifying face mask, I still go in

  • with an astringent, and I just honestly,

  • some people might be like, "This is horrible,"

  • and if you know a better one, I don't know,

  • let me know but I've been using this for awhile,

  • and so I go in an upwards motion

  • and I just continue to purify.

  • I call this purifying, clarifying step.

  • I do my ears, too, and I do my neck.

  • And when you do your neck, well one thing

  • the dermatologist told me was not,

  • don't take this same pad and go back to your face.

  • So just do your neck.

  • Okay, next thing I'm gonna do is toner.

  • This is the La Mer, the Tonic, their toner.

  • I love their toner.

  • You know, a toner is, I know I hear toners refine your pores

  • and all that stuff all the time, and they do

  • and some do, but the real purpose of the toner

  • is actually to balance your skin's pH,

  • and I do think there is a little pore refining in it

  • if you can see, I think so.

  • So I do everything, honestly, when I do my skincare,

  • you guys, I do my face, my chin,

  • my ears, my neck, even the back of my neck

  • and my decolletage, am I saying that right?

  • (mumbles)

  • And even my breasteses, but I'm not gonna do that

  • on camera, obviously.

  • After that, even though I know I just did a toner,

  • so this product, this is called,

  • this line is called Solvaderm.

  • I just discovered this stuff like last year.

  • So this toner, I thought I was buying their toner

  • when I was buying this, and it wasn't until

  • I was using it for like two weeks

  • and I loved the effect on my skin.

  • I didn't see this until later, neck and chest,

  • I didn't know that's what it was for.

  • No, I did not stop using it on my face

  • because I loved what it was doing to my face.

  • So spread sistren around, I feel like I use

  • like just too much of everything, but it's okay, whatever.

  • You could be gentler on your skin,

  • but I'm just getting through this right now, okay?

  • Bam, you see what I'm saying?

  • There's something about this product,

  • I don't know what it is, I don't know what it is, y'all,

  • but it's something.

  • Okay, so next thing we're gonna move onto.

  • I use this, it's called The Mist.

  • It is the La Mer, I don't know, revitalizing spray,

  • it's soothing and it's revitalizing,

  • especially after I do that mask, you know,

  • the one that I'm doing kind of like an abrasion

  • and it's pulling toxins out of my skin,

  • so I just wanna kinda soothe and calm,

  • and then I also heard that your skin

  • receives moisture better when it's a little damp.

  • So this I kind of, this sort of sets me up

  • to put all of the moisture back into my skin

  • that I just kinda, you know, just kinda stripped out of it.

  • (bottle spritzes)

  • And then from there, I'll move on

  • to the La Mer Infused Lotion.

  • I'm obsessed with this product,

  • blend, blend, blend honey, blend, blend, blend

  • like your life depend on it.

  • So you're just putting your fingertips like that.

  • And it's kinda like an essence, maybe, I guess,

  • it's like, I feel like the closest thing I can

  • sort of compare it to.

  • And then the next thing we're gonna do is serum.

  • Sometimes I put the little eye patches on,

  • I'll just show you actually

  • so you can see.

  • Sometimes I put these Peter Thomas Roth detox,

  • Cucumber De-Tox Hydra-Gel Eye Patches.

  • These are some of the only eye patches

  • that I've seen that actually work for my under eyes,

  • 'cause as you guys can see, I have, it's genetic honestly,

  • and I don't sleep very much so I have super,

  • super, super dark just under eyes and around my eyes.

  • So I just try to do some things to just brighten them,

  • part of that is hydrating, I forgot to mention that earlier,

  • drink your water.

  • So I'm just gonna go into my serum.

  • My serum situation is a little crazy.

  • I use this Prestige Cell, this Concentrated Serum.

  • I got this in Korea when we were in Seoul,

  • and I just remember messing with it in the store

  • and being like, me and my friend were like,

  • "Hold on, sis, is your skin getting better

  • "as I'm looking at you but it's too good to be true

  • "so you don't wanna acknowledge it?"

  • And she was like, "Yes," and I was,

  • "Bet, let's get all of them."

  • So I have this serum, I do use the Chanel Le Lift Serum.

  • I also use the Chanel Blue Antioxidant Serum.

  • I also use the Drops of Youth,

  • these have plant stem cells in them

  • from The Body Shop.

  • I use the La Mer Regenerating Serum,

  • the La Mer The Serum Essence,

  • and last but definitely not least,

  • I use the Bio Lifting Serum by Chantecaille.

  • So I know this sounds crazy and it is crazy,

  • and so all of these dermatologists and estheticians

  • are gonna be like, "Whoo, whoo, whoo!"

  • But it works for me and my skin looks really good

  • once I'm done using these, so like I said,

  • that's how it is, honey.

  • Okay, so the trick for me here is to just

  • a teeny little drop of all of these.

  • They all do something different,

  • they all do something different,

  • they all do something a little similar obviously

  • 'cause they're all serums, but they all do something

  • a little different, and I've tried a bunch

  • of different serums and like put these together

  • and this is like a combination of serums

  • that is really, really good for my skin.

  • Okay, so this is what I basically look like

  • when I'm done, it's a mess.

  • I just mix all of that together.

  • You definitely don't want to do it in layers

  • but again, I'm not gonna, I'm not here to preach to you

  • about no skin, I'm just showing you what works

  • really well for my skin.

  • So if it works for you to put on all these other layers,

  • I don't know, do it.

  • Rub that in, I put that again on my neck

  • and my ears, and then I'll later on,

  • off camera I'll do that.

  • So next we're gonna move onto the eye creams.

  • So I'm gonna start actually with an eye serum.

  • This is just a sample honestly, 'cause I just like

  • had to pick up some things and they gave me this sample

  • of this eye serum.

  • I'm always trying stuff for my eyes

  • 'cause again like I said, it's just like

  • darkness becomes you under there.

  • And my makeup artist was telling me,

  • you know, you gotta try an eye serum.

  • So I just looked at a couple of them

  • and then I got this free sample from them,

  • so I said, "Why not try it," and so far it's been okay,

  • you know, I don't know if I noticed

  • like a huge difference but it's been cool.

  • Pat, pat, pat, pat, pat, pat.

  • A lot of eye creams and serums are really good

  • for like fine lines and wrinkles so anywhere
