Skincare has been one of my biggest struggles over the years. I started getting acne in 6th grade and by 7th I was trying anything and everything my dermatologist could think of to save my skin. Over the years I have tried almost everything and I have finally come up with a routine that is perfect for my skin. I have extremely sensitive and oily skin (no amount of toner, moisturizer, or water helps but at least I wont get wrinkles), I get the occasional breakout and quite a bit of redness in my skin, but this routine helps keep those to a minimum.
Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser // This has been one of my favorite cleansers for years. Gel cleanser is the perfect formula for oily skin and I think that the charcoal in the cleanser helps prevent breakouts.
Boscia MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil // This is my favorite makeup removers. It's an oil that emulsifies any and all makeup and then you add a little water which turns the oil into a milky cleanser and washes everything away.
Clarisonic // I have been using a Clarisonic for years and can always notice a huge difference in my skin when I am using it consistently. It cleans 6 times deeper than just using your hands. I have fewer blackheads and my skin looks less congested when I use my Clarisonic.
Sunday Riley Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner // I started using this toner a few months ago and it has made a huge difference in the redness and oiliness in my skin. I'm not so in love with the scent but it isn't unbearable.
Sunday Riley CEO Repair Moisturizer // I just started using this at the beginning of the month and I'm loving it. I'm living in Utah this summer and the air is so so dry up here, so I didn't think my favorite moisturizing sorbet was cutting it anymore.
Supergoop! Everyday Sunscreen SPF 50 // Wearing a SPF everyday is so important to prevent fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and dark spots all over your body. This is my favorite because it dries dry, its not sticky or shiny. I love to use this mist on my face instead of the lotion.
Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 50 // I like to use this one at the beach because its water resistant and feels a little heavier.
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer // I decided to stray from my tried and true primer I have used since 7th grade to try this Hourglass Mineral Primer and I love it. It helps fill in pores and make the perfect canvas for foundation.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation // If you have oily skin this is the best foundation. Its formulated for 24 hour wear so while you shouldn't wear makeup for more than 12 hours this foundation stays in place all day. I always set it with this powder and 'bake' my under eyes and t-zone for long and hotter days.
Fresh Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask // This is my favorite night cream that I have ever tried. It its ultra moisturizing and helps with the elasticity of skin. This has made my skin visibly more firm and softer to the touch.
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel // This peel is a cure all. It helps with everything from large pores, to acne scars, black heads, and dullness.
St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse // If you are like me and can't tan to save your life, this will make you look less ghostly in the summer. I have never had it look orange and as long as I exfoliate and use this mitt.
Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant // This might not exactly be skincare but it is one of my favorite products I have ever discovered. It smells amazing and is perfect for sensitive skin.
Aside from my daily skincare routine, I love to mix in these masks and scrubs a few times a week.
I hope this helps anyone looking to update their skincare routine.
P.S. I added a new "SHOP" tab to the navigation bar up top where you can shop my everyday skincare, makeup, and haircare.
