Hey Y'all! Happy Friday! I wanted to talk about skincare today and I finally feel like it is the right time to share not only my morning but also my nighttime routine as well! I have had a rough couple of months with my skin and I feel like I am at a good place and have the right products for my skin now!
A little back story of my skin: I have always have fairly good skin, I never really had bad acne growing up other than a few bumps here and there. I do however have combination/oily skin which can definitely be a pain in the booty! The products I have been using not only help to control my oil but also keep me from having major breakouts!
In the morning I like to keep things very simple! I get up early for work and the last thing I want to do is spend an hour on my skincare. The first thing I do is wash my face with cold water using the Soap and Glory Face Soap (Vitamin C). I love the smell of this stuff and it wakes me right up...plus this bottle lasts such a long time!
Next I use a cotton round and the Clean and Clear toner just to remove any excess dirt or oil.
Before I apply any makeup in the morning I like to moisturize my skin with the Soap and Glory The Fab Pore Moisturizer. I know I said I have oily skin but I have actually read a study one time about how if you skip moisturizer it could actually make your skin even oilier, so I don't skip that step! The last products I apply are the Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot primer and the Mario Badescu Rose water!
My morning routine sounds like a lot but all of that literally takes me five minutes if that! So I call it a win!
My nighttime routine takes a little longer and by that I mean 7 minutes instead of 5!
I start off with removing my makeup and I usually will use a Target brand makeup wipe in the shower then just rinse my face with warm water.
After the shower I will use the Clinique Liquid Facial Soap made for combination/oily skin...a little goes along way with this product. Once I have my face cleansed I will go in with a cotton round and the Clinique Clarifying lotion (again made for combo/oily skin). I love that product because it really does remove any last bit of makeup that was left on my skin. I follow all that up with the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel which leaves my skin feeling so nice! The last products I use are the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum and I have noticed a huge difference in the texture and color of my skin since using this! I then follow it up with the Soap and Glory Puffy Eye Attack eye cream, this keeps me from getting those wrinkles and puffy eyes!
Twice a week I like to use a scrub and for that I always use the Soap and Glory 2 Min T-Zone Detox! It is perfect to remove any little whiteheads you might have and also get rid of dirt and oil deep in the pores, I love the feel of my skin after using this!
I also like to use masks! My favorite's are the Soap and Glory Bright & Beautiful Mask as well as the Mint Julep mask! I have used the Mint Julep mask since high school and I will never stop! It is so affordable and so good!
If I ever have any active breakouts or scars I will use the Mario Badescu drying lotion on my breakouts and then I use pure tea tree oil on any scars or dark spots! The tea tree oil has helped my dark spots left over after breakouts tremendously! I highly recommend trying it!!
Well that is it for my morning and night skin care routines! I do try to keep it as simple as I possibly can because let's be honest I am SO LAZY! If you have oily skin I highly recommend you try the Clinique products because I feel like that is what has saved my skin! If you have any other products you think I should try please let me know, I am always wanting to try new things! I love y'all and don't forget to subscribe and follow all my social media sites! Until next time...
