Desert Skin Rehab: Part 2

LSC-DesertSkinRehab2

Last week we gave you the rundown of our marketing coordinator Madeline’s post-Coachella skincare rehab regimen. And now we’ve got the photographic proof of its speedy efficacy. Just one week after returning from the desert, Madeline’s Lancer Glow is back!

Upon returning from Coachella, Madeline’s skin was angry. Overexposure to the sun, heat and dry desert air had caused it to break out, dry out and become unevenly pigmented. To remedy this, Madeline exfoliated with Sensitive Polish for the first four days to jumpstart the cell renewal process. Exfoliation also causes blood circulation to increase, and this helped her blemishes to heal quickly without scarring. Plus, by using Polish in conjunction with a healthy daily dose of Sensitive Nourish, Retexturizing Treatment Cream and Advanced C Radiance and drinking a green juice and extra water each day, Madeline’s skin quickly regained hydration from the deep layers to the epidermis – hence her radiant glow. In the after photos, you can see what is, quite frankly, a miraculous recovery: redness is drastically reduced, pimples are nonexistent, her coloring is even, and her flaky, scaly skin is now smooth and soft to the touch. All just in time to go back for Stagecoach and do it again! (Kidding.)

Desert Skin Rehab: Fighting the Effects of Fun and Sun at Coachella

LSC-DesertSkinRehab2

No matter how well you care for your skin, there are times it can be hard to maintain a meticulous regimen, especially when you’re away from home. Last week we posted about how traveling can tax skin health: Flying speeds up dehydration and sun exposure, and upon landing, a change in hard or soft water and air humidity can easily irritate skin and cause breakouts and dryness.

But few climates are as brutal as the SoCal desert combined with the party atmosphere of Coachella. For nearly 15 years, Angelenos having been trekking to the desert to spend three days enjoying the music, sun, food and crowds that make up the famous festival. While we’re all for having some good, healthy fun—which Coachella makes easy with vegan and vegetarian food options, juice stands and fresh fruit—there are few things more taxing than three full days of sun exposure, ultra dry and hot temperatures, and the inevitable cocktail or five, we mean, two.

Our marketing coordinator headed to Coachella armed with her Lancer arsenal, but had a hard time maintaining her regimen in the desert. “My skin was super irritated from the heat, dry from the air, and so dirty. As much as I wanted to polish all the grime away, I knew I would be exposed to the same thing the next day, so I held off on polishing, and stuck with tons of Sheer Fluid SPF, Nourish and eye cream to stay as hydrated as possible.”

Even being so proactive, Madeline found that her skin suffered: “I can see the pigmentation on my nose, around my eyes and in the hollows of my cheeks from the sun. Plus some congested pores from all the sweat and dirt. I want my Lancer glow back!”

So what are the doctor’s orders for tackling post-Coachella skin? Check out Madeline’s rehab regimen below:

Diet. Beautiful skin starts from within, so the first step is to boost your daily intake of water and greens. This will make a big, and noticeable, difference. If you’re jonesing for something with more flavor than good old H2O and celery sticks, try Pressed Juicery‘s Greens 3 and coconut water for extra hydration.

Skin Care. It’s important to be diligent about your daily regimen once you’re back from the desert. Since returning from Coachella, Madeline has been following these steps:

In the morning:
1. Wash with Sensitive Cleanse and pat skin dry
2. Retexturizing Treatment Cream
3. Sensitive Nourish
4. Sheer Fluid Sun Shield
5. Eye Contour Lifting Cream

At night:
1. Remove makeup with grape seed oil
2. Steam face for 5 minutes in the shower
3. Polish
4. Sensitive Cleanse
5. Advanced C Radiance
6. Sensitive Nourish
7. Eye Contour Lifting Cream

Next week, we’ll be sharing Madeline’s before and after photos – be sure to check back!
