Having a skincare routine is the most important factor when it comes to maintaining healthy beautiful skin. In order to have your makeup look flawless, you have to start at the surface and get your skin in check first or your makeup will just look like its sitting on top of your face. For me, I don’t usually wear makeup on bad skin days. Its important to let the skin breath during times of breakouts or dryness. Below I’m sharing my favorite skincare products for day and night!
First, if I’m wearing makeup that day, I remove it with the Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing Oil. I use about 1 pump and rub it in my fingers to warm it up. Then I rub my fingers in circular motions around my eyes to remove all eye makeup. Once I feel like most of the mascara has been broken down I rinse it off. Next, I use 1 pump of the Cera Ve Foaming Facial Cleanser (for oily skin) on my Clarisonic Mia 2 to exfoliate while removing my face makeup. I like this cleanser because I feel like it really lathers up and takes all my face makeup off. I also love my clarisonic because it gets deep in my pores to remove the dirt and excess makeup. It’s basically just a vibrating brush with a special brush head that focuses on deep cleaning. It also helps remove any dryness or texture on the skin. I only use it about 3 times a week so I dont over-exfoliate my face. I use the Garnier Shine Control cleansing gel when I wake up in the morning to remove oil build up from sleeping. I have very oily skin so it also helps to mattify my face before I apply my makeup. This cleasner I just use with my hands.
After my face is clean, I spray my Alaffia Coconut Water Face Toner all over my face. I absolutley love this stuff!! It smells amazing and refreshes and hydrates my skin after cleansing. I also love this for the summer! I put it in my beach bag and spray it in my hair and on my face when I get hot at the beach. In the morning, I will apply my makeup directly after toning because I find if I use a moisturizer my skin just gets too oily throughout the day. But at night after toning, I apply the Olay Night Pore Perfector mixed with the Cera Ve Moisturizing Lotion . I like this combonation because one works to shrink the pores and even out the skin tone and the other just moisturizes. On days when I feel like my skin is acting up or its extra oily I willl use a face mask. I always love trying new ones but the Origins Active Charcoal Mask really helps to purify and diminish oil production. I try to use this a few times a month.
That concludes my daily skincare routine! I hope you enjoyed and found some new products or tips you wanna try!
