HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN SKINCARE ROUTINE

Good evening babes! It has taken me years to find a solid skincare routine and to actually take it seriously. I would always try a moisturizer and been like, sweet this is all I need because everything else makes me flare up and I’m lazy. That is no way to live life my friends. Your skin reflects how you take care of yourself on the outside but also on the inside. 

Putting together a skincare routine can be overwhelming with so many different products on the market. The first thing you need to do it determine your skin type. What are your problem areas? Are you an oily, dry, or combination kinda gal? What do you want to improve or reduce? 

Personally, I have combination skin (meaning I have an oily T zone and dry cheeks), big pores, cystic acne, and sensitive skin that reddens with almost every product. Taking all of this into consideration I also know what brands I like drugstore and higher end. 

Below I have listed a few products that I have used personally or have good reviews for different skin types, if you are unsure if its for you click the link to read about it and see if it fits your skins needs. 

Enjoy creating your own skincare routine!

EXFOLIATORS

Exfoliants are a game changer, using one 2-3 times a week takes away all of your dead skin leaving you with glowing skin. 

L’OREAL – Smooth Sugars Scrub

FRESH –  Sugar Face Polish

CLARINS –  One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser 

 

CLEANSERS

Finding a nice gentle cleanser to use in the morning and night can be overwhelming for sensitive skin, go for more of a lotion instead of a harsher product.

MARCELLE – Ultra Gentle Cleansing Gel

DERMALOGICA – Daily Microfoliant Exfoliator 

PHILOSOPHY – Purity 

 

TONERS

I love using toners before my moisturizer to clear the skin 2X as much leaving it ready for other products to sink in better (this also helps with oily skin tremendously). 

SIMPLE – Soothing Facial Toner

PIXI – Glow Tonic

PIXI – Rose Tonic

MILK MAKEUP – Matcha Toner

 

 

DAILY MOISTURIZERS

If you have oily skin using a gel moisturizer over a cream will help reduce your oil throughout the day and won’t clog your pores. 

MARCELLE – Hydractive Gel Cream

OLAY – Total Effects 7 in 1 

DRUNK ELEPHANT – Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer

CLINIQUE – Moisture Surge 

 

NIGHT MOISTURIZERS

I love sleeping masks, they are so effortless and make my skin so soft. These give your skin a little extra boost of hydration while you sleep without the gunk your face gets when your out and about using the day. 

LANEIGE – Water Sleeping Mask

GLOW RECIPE – Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

GLAM GLOW – Good in Bed 

FRESH – Lotus Youth Dream Night Cream

MICELLAR WATERS

Micellar waters are amazing for removing makeup, I typically use my cleanser first and then go over my face with a cotton pad. You’ll be amazed at what is left behind. 

SIMPLE – Kind to Skin Micellar Water

BIODERMA – Sensibio H2O Micellar Water

KIEHLS – Herbal Infused Micellar Water

 

FACIAL SPRAYS

These are totally not necessary but they are nice to have especially on a hot day, I like adding a spritz after everything is applied to my face to give it 10X the glow and hydration. 

MARIO BADESCU – Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater

HERBIVORE – Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Face Mist

EVIAN – Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray

GLOW RECIPE – Watermelon Glow Ultra Fine Mist

 

FACE MASKS

Masking is the perfect “me time” product. There are masks for every skin problem you could think of. If you don’t get a lot of me time, a sheet mask is perfect, it’s a one and done and you don’t have a tub of something you won’t use up. 

PIXI – Glow Mud Mask

FRESH – Rose Face Mask

SEPHORA – Face Mask Collection

GLAMGLOW – Bubble Sheet Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask

L’OREAL – Pure Clay Daily Cleanser
