The New Year is the perfect time to rethink your skincare routine. That’s why I teamed up with Ulta Beauty to try bareMinerals Skinsorials – a new 3-part daily ritual that just launched during Ulta Beauty’s Glowing Skin event. For endless reasons, a consistent skin care routine is the most important part of your beauty regimen. It’s something you should adopt for yourself every single day. Think of it as five minutes or so that you’re taking just for YOU! Not only will it benefit your health, but it’ll create a solid base for your makeup to stand out, hydrate your skin, and of course, will create anti-aging benefits for you down the line.
So for you busy body ladies who are huge fans of the five minute face, for instance, because you have to use your time sparingly, this super simple three-step process with only three products is the answer to your skin care prayers.
The first step of the bareMinerals new routine is to cleanse. Our face takes a lot more of a beating throughout the day than you might realize, so this is a super important step. I chose the Blemish Ready Cleaner for myself, because as many of you know, I have acne-prone skin. Enriched with lots of fabulous ingredients like salicylic acid, peppermint, and sea salt, each aspect of this cleanser comes together to not only get all of the dirt and leftover makeup off of your face, but it infuses some minerals back into your skin. There are other options for cleanser other than this one if you don’t have acne-prone skin like I do.
The next step in is to apply a serum. I love the Skin Longevity Serum for its versatility for so many skin types and its lightweight feel. One of the stand-out ingredients in this serum is a long life herb from Japan, full of more nutrients than kale or spinach! All it takes is one to two pumps a day of this lovely serum, which doesn’t apply as thick and saturated as many serums do.
Lastly, it’s time to moisturize. Moisturizing is absolutely essential in any beauty routine. The True Oasis Oil-Free Replenishing Gel Cream is a unique product in the sense that there’s a much different consistency to it unlike the typical cream moisturizer you’re used to. As I rub this moisturizing gel on my face, I find I get a cooling effect as it penetrates my skin that is so calming. It’s a great option for many skin types, but specifically oil-free and combination skin. There are some other moisturizers to choose from to suit your skin type.
Now is the best time to try new skincare products, and with only three steps making a new beauty ritual so convenient and quick, why not! To make sure you kick off this year with the best skin ever, every Thursday–Sunday, Ulta Beauty will feature some of their favorite skincare products on their website for 50% off!

A question I posed in the video that I’d love to share with my readers as well is what aspect of your skin care routine do you love the most? How many steps have you incorporated into your routine?
