Hi bb, do you aspire to have glowy skin? (Um, is the sky blue?) If you, too, are on the ongoing search for products that give a lil’ brightening boost, don’t worry, we gotchu! In the video above, Cosmo beauty assistant Ama Kwarteng details her routine for lit-from-within skin, giving us a peek at two products that have been superstars in helping her achieve her #glowgoals.
Kwarteng starts by washing her face with Bioré Brightening Jelly Cleanser, which is made with a ~fancy~ technology that allows the product to do serious work for your pores. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jeanette Graf says, “The technology targets problem areas where there are stubborn blocked pores, making it easier to break them down and rinse away with water, which enables deep cleansing without stripping the skin.”
The Bioré cleanser is one of the first products formulated for what derms refer to as the 60/30 rule, which is as easy as the decision to stay in your pjs during a video-off work call. Just wash your face for 60 seconds, and then rinse for thirty.
Dr. Graf advises that washing your face for a minute with a gentle cleanser can do great things for your skin, like fully remove all that dirt, grime, and the stubborn build up of material in pores. “Rinsing for 30 seconds ensures that residue from the cleanser gets completely rinsed off,” she says. Make sure you’re not rinsing with water that’s too hot or too cold, though, to avoid irritating your skin!
Kwarteng recommends the cleanser, made with yuzu lemon and ginseng, for those who are looking to combat dull, uneven-looking skin. She also points out that it doesn’t create a huge clean-up sesh each time you wash your face. “I feel like some cleansers are so sudsy that it makes a complete mess in your bathroom,” Kwarteng says. “This one is pretty mess-free and easy to use—probably due to the jelly texture—and it’s super gentle.”
In addition to the cleanser, Kwarteng uses the Bioré Brightening Face Scrub two to three times a week to up her radiance even further. The exfoliator refines and polishes to improve texture and uneven tone, as well as visibly reduce the appearance of pores.
