Fans of reality TV star and business mogul Kim Kardashian have long wondered what her secrets are to maintaining her glowing, youthful-looking complexion. But did you know she was suffering from a skin disease that inspired her and led to her passion for skincare?
Kim Kardashian disclosed her skin issue in an interview saying,
I had psoriasis since I was 25. To prevent flare-ups, I prioritize skin care, live healthily, and focus on a plant-based diet. Skincare is crucial for my self-care.
Many assume she must have an intense regimen involving the latest in cosmetic procedures and products, celebrity facialist Toska Husted shares that the 41-year-old’s routine is actually quite simple.
Toska Husted’s Exclusive Insights On Kim’s K Skincare Routine
“It’s more like a ritual for her,” says Toska. She advises creating a calming ambiance first. The facialist, who also counts Khloe Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez among her celebrity clients, advised setting the mood first. Dim the lights and play some soothing music to create a spa-like ambiance for your skincare session.
The routine involves cleansing with both an oil-based and milky cleanser to remove makeup and impurities while nourishing the skin. An exfoliant is used a few times a week followed by a mask left on for 20 minutes. Face serums and a facial massage are applied before sealing it all in with a rich moisturizer.
A good skincare routine involves these steps. Double cleansing ensures thorough cleaning, exfoliation provides smoother skin, hydrating masks are good for nourishment, facial massage improves circulation, and moisturizing is for skin health and hydration.
Toska’s Key Tip
Toska Husted also shares one key piece of advice – don’t apply skincare right before bed. The facialist warns that products won’t absorb properly if used too close to sleep.
“All that serum and moisturizer will end up on your pillow,” says Toska. Not only is it a waste, but it could cause breakouts. She recommends allowing at least 30 minutes after your routine before nodding off.
This gives the skin time to fully soak up nutrients so you wake with a dewy, well-rested glow.
An Hour to Achieve Dazzling Beauty
While effective, Toska notes Kim’s routine only takes 30 minutes to an hour to complete. She also advises against wearing makeup when it’s not needed to give skin a break. Most importantly, clients are reminded to cleanse twice daily and wear sunscreen daily, even in winter, for complete skin protection.
Through her simple yet consistent approach, Kim maintains her glowing complexion whether working or relaxing at home. Fans looking to achieve radiant skin can follow her lead with Toska’s professional guidance and tips for self-care. With the right products and techniques, anyone can achieve Hollywood-worthy skin.
