Skincare Routine!

Sunday, July 6, 2014

This kind of piggy-back's off my recent post on my sunscreen routine but I can say that it is one of the more important parts of my daily routine. Growing up, I aways felt like I had horrible skin, massive breakouts, uneven tone, redness, you name it. Looking back, I can't actually find photographical evidence of this awful skin, so perhaps I was just self conscious, but either way, I am very diligent about my skin care routine. When I slack off, I think it shows. 
I have very sensitive skin, I aways have, and mine tends to be on the oily side so I feel that my routine can most certainly work for a variety of skin types. 

1 | Clarisonic Mia 2- This is hands down the best beauty investment I have ever made and I absolutely recommend that everyone go buy one right this very minuet. I use mine about every other day, sometimes every day in the summer. It is so wonderful for exfoliating and ensuring that you get all the grime out of your pores.  

2 | Sensitive Skin Brush- I purchased the sensitive skin brush for my Clarisonic, the bristles are softer and work best for me as my skin gets irritated so easily. The box says to change your brush heads about every 3 months, but that can get expensive, so I am always careful to remove my brush head and clean it front and back to remove the grime and I change them about every 6 months. 

3| Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser - This is the cleanser I use with my Clarisonic. It is gentle enough to use everyday. It is what I call my morning cleanser. It does not dry your skin out at all and it is scent free, which I love. 

4| Dermalogica Active Moist Moisturizer - This stuff is seriously amazing. It is so light, it doesn't make you feel greasy at all but it works wonders on my skin. Remember how I mentioned I have oily skin? Well, I think it is so important to not dry out your skin if it is oily, that just causes your glands to overcompensate. This stuff is the perfect balance between being extremely moisturizing but not heavy. It is well worth the price. Plus, the bottle lasts a long time! 

5| Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser - This is what I use as my 'night time' cleanser. I also use it some mornings if I am headed right to the gym and plan on showering after. It is wonderful for getting all of the makeup and dirt off your face at the end of the day. This is one part of my skincare I NEVER skip. To keep your skin nice, it is imperative that you remove your make up at the end of the day!
