Who wouldn't love to ditch makeup once and for all? It sounds nice, yet unattainable, for those of us who don't have perfect, blemish-free, spot-free skin. Alicia Keys has mastered her unique skin care routine and put in the work to achieve her flawless complexion without any trace of makeup!
"It took me forever to get this skin," Keys explains. For many years, she struggled with breakouts that were triggered by a combination of heavy makeup and performances under hot lights (which made her sweat for hours). "I know how it feels to have a face full of bumps and pimples. I lived through that in the public eye."
These days, however, her sensitive and acne-prone skin stays clear and calm with a routine of minimalistic and medical-grade products. Epicuren is proud to hold some of Alicia Keys' go-to products.
Bulgaricum Probiotic Mask Powder
A calming mask that introduces healthy bacteria onto the skin, while moisturizing and soothing. Helps to purify, soothe, and hydrate. "Epicuren is one of my favorite brands. So I love this mask. If you smell it, it's almost milky or something. What I like about it is, first of all, it smells like there's food on your face so you wanna eat yourself. And then second of all, it has a little bit of a grainy texture... and something about that feels good sometimes, like an exfoliant but not really. It's still a calming thing. This, I'll actually leave it on my skin for five...maybe I'll make it 20 minutes. Then I rinse and dry it off, pat dry again... my skin feels really good."
Aloe Vera Calming Gel
Made from the purest, whole leaf Aloe Vera plant, this gentle blend contains an array of soothing ingredients that lightly hydrate. *This product can be used on its own, as well as to be mixed with the Bilgaricum Probiotic Mask Powder to make it applicable.
Acidophilus Probiotic Moisturize
Restore balance and harmony with this gentle moisturizer, enriched with Lactobacilli Acidophilus and Micronized Silver to maintain a fresh, blemish-free complexion.
X-Treme Cream Propolis Sunscreen SPF 45
A moisturizing formula enhanced with Propolis (nature's medicine); provides an invisible shield from harsh environmental elements while helping the skin appear supple and more radiant.
