Skincare for some of us is as important as our overall health.
I would know. After trial and error, I know the benefits of following a consistent skincare regimen.
Every time I see my esthetician (s) (thanks Bee and Elizabeth). These ladies drill it in my head and give me tough love every time I tell them I skipped a step in my cleansing routine during the week.
I can say with plenty of experience once your skin is used to a particular routine with certain products, your skin will ‘notice’ the change or ‘switch up’ as I like to call it.
Its akin to brushing your teeth daily. If you skip a day (hopefully you don’t), your teeth will have plaque buildup.
Its similar to your skin. If you skip a step or say you skip your night routine, the next morning your skin will have ‘buildup’ that otherwise would not have been there had you kept your night routine.
I notice if I skip my night routine, for no real logic reason. The texture of my skin will be a little dryer and rough then normal.
Then, I’m rushing to call my esthetician for a dermaplaning facial which gets costly if I don’t stick to my once of month schedule.
Here is a morning and night routine that I follow recommended by skin professionals.
I love this cleanser because it is super gentle and contains tea tree oil which helps keep my pores clean and breakouts almost non existent.
Depending on what I feel like using, some days I use a Multi-Active toner by Sken or the AHA Glow tonic by REN. I love the AHA glow toner because it works as a gentle exfoliant.
Toning helps bring back the PH balance back into the skin after you cleanse it.
I then follow up using two serums. I use my ‘Blemish Bomb‘ which helps treat any breakouts I have and then I follow up with a Vitamin-C serum.
Finally, I use my moisturizer by Sken which has a great amount of Niacinamide’s to help balance and keep my skin moisturized.
Note: If I know I’m going outside I apply my Glow Stick with SPF by SuperGoop.
I use my ‘Nocturnal Cleanse’ from my morning routine.
I then use an exfoliating cotton pad and/or my Neutrogena Microdermabrasian facial brush.
I follow-up with a hyaluronic acid serum by The Ordinary.
I then use my ultra-hydrating Collagen Plump mask by PIXI.
By following a consistent routine, my skin stays clear and smooth.
