Hi guys! A lot of people ask me about the skin care products I use and what regimen I follow everyday. Although, I don’t have great skin, sometimes you need people with not so great skin telling you what they do 😛 I have to say that everyone can follow the regimen I do each day, but the products can absolutely differ depending on your skin. I like to have options since I have combination skin with dry T zone. I like to switch things around. I love trying new products for my skin, and yes, some of them lead me to breakout; but, it doesn’t stop me from trying new products. I am not a big fan of using the same brand for all my skin care for some reason. Taking care of your skin is very important and knowing the right products for your skin can be hard. Hopefully I can help with that. Investing in a good skin care regimen is extremely important – remember good skin requires commitment and not a miracle!
My skin care routine starts at night with one of the most important steps in skin care: taking my makeup off! I have many different ways of taking my makeup off and that depends on the kind of makeup I am wearing. If I am wearing a lot of makeup with a good amount of mascara and liner I take a little of Shiseido Perfect Cleansing Oil and gently rub it around my eyes and then with a warm Makeup Eraser I gently clean my face. This thing is legit it takes everything off! Then, I use a mild cleanser like the Peter Thomas Roth anti-Aging Gel Cleanser, because I need a nice clean skin in order for my routine to work 🙂 To make sure I got everything, I sometimes use witch hazel. Witch hazel is such an underrated product, and it surely is one of my fav products. If used correctly it can help control excessive sebum production. But, if I only have light everyday makeup on I use the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water on a cotton round and take the makeup off. Then I use the Eminence Monoi Age Corrective Exfoliating Cleanser. To tone my skin I sometimes use a witch hazel or sometimes the super refreshing Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner from Fresh. Once my skin is clean and toned I take a light SKII Facial Treatment Essence onto my hands and pat it on my face, neck and décolleté. Once that is absorbed into the skin, I use this brightening serum from Sofina I got from Japan or I use the Kora Organics Noni Glow Oil. I top it all with the La mer cream. Currently, I’m using Derma Plus Vitamin K eye cream for my under eye dark circles. I never skip this step! Lastly, something that mostly everyone forgets is the neck.I take pea size amount of my fingers and, using upward strokes, apply the StriVectin Tightening neck cream.
I know it’s a bit much to think about, but once you start following a routine every night, it only takes a few minutes.
When I wake up, my skin still looks pretty fresh. In the shower I usually wash my face. I usually like to use mild cleanser, but sometimes when I feel like I am breaking out I switch to Replenix acne wash. The 10% Benzoyl Peroxide instantly helps with the acne. I tone my face while it’s still damp from the steam. Then I apply the La mer cream or sometimes I use Tata Harper Hydrant Reconstituant only if I am feeling oily. The last step is to apply a SPF. I use Chantecallie SPF 45. It’s also a primer 🙂
