Hi friends! Happy Friday! I’m here to bring you my updated skincare routine. I recently did a poll on Instagram asking you guys if you’d rather see an update haircare routine or skincare routine and skincare won! I’ll probably be doing an update haircare routine at some point since I have cut my hair since doing my last haircare routine and it has changed some. So let’s dive in!
My morning skincare is a lot less extensive than my nighttime skincare just because I don’t want to layer on the products before layering on makeup. I find that it makes more sense and more of a difference in my skin when I do more intensive skincare at night when it has time to sink in. Ya know? So in the morning, I wash my face with my Noxzema cleanser. I know Noxzema is suuuuch a throwback but I love the tingly feeling it gives my face and just makes it feel so fresh in the morning. I’ll lather it on my face and go in with my Clarisonic. I love my Clarisonic. My face feels so much cleaner when I use it and I can always tell a difference in my skin when I don’t use it as much. Then I just apply my Derma-E Scar Gel and let that sink in. I follow that with my Garnier SkinActive Moisture Rescue Gel Moisturizer. Yes I still use this and it never lets me down, even in the dry winter months. It’s super lightweight. Then I apply my primer in my “problem spots” and follow it with my makeup.
I’m going to include my body skincare as well because your body needs some TLC too. When I shower at night, I like to use a body scrub to get off all the dead skin and make my skin super smooth! I use this body scrub and it smells amazing! It also lasts forever! When I get out, I slather my body with this lotion. It isn’t greasy but it’s super moisturizing and smells really nice.
Now to the face. I still use my Equate makeup remover towels but I started using makeup removing wash cloths. They’re these wash cloths you can find at Ulta and they have some kind of solution on them to take off makeup. You just wet them and they work like magic. I love them and you can wash and reuse them! After I take my makeup off I cleanse with my Noxzema and Clarisonic. I like to use my face scrub as well. It is a life saver! I’m obsessed with this stuff. It is pricey but it lasts forever. I usually use that about twice a week. Then if I’m feeling like treating myself to a mask, I’ll use this Mud Mask and I am obsessed with it. It does totally smell like play dough buuuut that doesn’t bother me because it really works to clear skin. And if I’m being honest, I like the smell of play dough… I go in with a toner after that. I can’t say I’m in love with this toner but it gets the job done and it’s alcohol free so that’s a win. Then I’ll go in again with my Derma-E Scar Gel and put it on my acne scars. At night, I like to use an eye cream because my under eyes tend to be dry and need some moisture. I got a sample recently of this eye cream and I’ve really seen a difference in my under eye area. I follow that up with this Retinol serum. It’s never too early to prevent aging! I follow that up with my Garnier moisturizer and I’m all done. It seems extensive but the mask and scrub aren’t everyday so there are only a few steps!
I hope you guys enjoyed my skincare routine!
