Skincare

I have been waiting to post about my skincare routine for a while! I have always had normal skin with minimal breakouts and this has been my routine for so long. So, I wanted to share it with you all!

Before I get in the shower, I use Too Faced Mascara Melt Off on my lashes since I wear their Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara. I use to never be able to get ALL of the mascara off so now I use this and it's SO gentle on my eyes and gets every bit of mascara off! These two products are a MUST HAVE.

Once I am in the shower, I use Philosophy's Purity Made Simple face wash. I use warm water all over my face to help melt with the removal and then apply a small amount of face wash to my face and rub it in circles all over for 1 or 2 minutes to make sure I'm getting every part of my face. Then, I use a wash cloth that I ran under the hot water and rub that all over my face to rinse the face wash off and also to gently exfoliate my face. This is a secret that my sister shared with me! She says to never use your hands to wash off the face wash but to always use a wet washcloth! I love Purity because it gets every bit of my make up off and leaves my skin so soft! Its not harsh and smells so wonderful. Click the picture below to buy the face wash!

Once I have washed all of my makeup off I use my cleanser! This cleanser was recommended to me by the woman who gives me my facials at Emory Aesthetic Center and it has changed my life! I use a little bit and mix it with some water and rub it all over my face, EXCEPT FOR MY EYES, and then rinse with a wet washcloth! I usually rub the washcloth gently in circular motions to exfoliate as well! This cleanser is pretty pricey but if you're looking for a cheaper one Mario Badescu has a great one! I used this one before and its so great! Click the picture and button below to purchase these products!

After I cleanse my face I use ProActiv's Skin Smoothing Exfoliator. I only exfoliate twice a week because if I do it too much my skin will become very dry! I use a small amount and rub it in circular motions on my skin, never my eyes though! Once, I have rubbed it in I will use a wet washcloth, yet again, and use circular motions to rinse it off my face. Since this product can be pretty pricey I am going to link some other really great products for you to try!

After I have exfoliated, I use a towel to dab my face dry. Once, my face is dry I use Tarte's Maracuja Oil and use 1 1/2 drops of that on my fingers and lightly rub it into my face. I then use Origins GinZings Refreshing Eye Cream on my eyeslids and underneath my eyes. Next, I use Sunday Rileys Good Genes Treatment and apply two pumps onto my fingers then rub it into my face, not my eyes. After the treatment I use Sunday Rileys CEO cream as my moisturizer and I'm done!

My routine is super easy and I have been doing this for so long! I hope you try some of these products and let me know how they work for you. This routine works for my skin but remember everyone's skin is different and will react differently to each product! Let me know what other routines you would like to see! xoxo

Stay daring,
