My "current" skin care routine

I did a blog post last year about my skin and how I was committing to a better skin routine. I had just gotten into the world of makeup and it was soooo frustrating that makeup wasn’t looking good on my oily and acne-prone skin. I was spending money on foundation that looked horrible and actually made my pores look larger. I’ve gone through a lot of different products over the last year and I’ve finally found a few products that have changed my life and my skin. I’ve done a video on it and I wanted to also post a blog about the products and where they can be found. I hope you enjoy!

Morning Routine:

I bounce between two cleansers:

Biore 4-in-1 Detoxifying Cleanser

Clean&Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleanser (This may actually be discontinued)

Then I follow it up with a chemical exfoliant:

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant

If I have a breakout or a need a little extra treatment: 

Paula’s Choice CLEAR Regular Strength  Daily Skin  Clearing Treatment w/ 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide 

Then I always moisturize with a lotion that has a sunscreen of some sort:

Olay Total Effects Moisturizer  + serum  Duo with SPF 15

or 

CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion

Nightly Routine:

If I’m wearing makeup I will double cleanse:
1st with: Clean&Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleanser
Then with: Paula’s Choice CLEAR Pore Normalizing Cleanser

Then I follow up with the chemical exfoliant again: 
Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant

Then I moisturize with:
CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion

Then I go in with my eye treatment cream: 
Cliniques Anti-gravity firming eye lift cream

On days that my skin is particular angry with me I treat my skin with a mask:

Lush Mask of Magnaminty

or 

a cheap one from Walgreen’s or Walmart. 

These steps I have taken to clear up my skin and pores has really changed my life. It may sound hyperbolic but coming from someone who use to struggle with cystic acne to someone who barely gets acne. 

I hope this helps you in your path to clearer skin!




*I am by no means a person of infinite knowledge about skin and how it should be treated medically. I am not a dermatologist or makeup artist so the ramblings above are just my opinions. If you have questions about skin care, I recommend you see your dermatologist.
