My Skincare Routines

February 10, 2020

I have been searching for what feels like years for the perfect skincare routine and praise the Lord I believe I have finally found it!!! From my high school days of hormonal acne, to stress acne in college, and now to random breakouts around my period or from traveling. I feel like I have tried too many products to count.

All of the products listed in this post are products that I have already used up and re-bought or have been using for several weeks so I know their long term effects on my skin. Keep in mind all of these products might not work for your particular skin type, but I will say they are worth a try becuase I love them. For reference, I have sensitive, combination skin that leans just a little more towards the oliy side.

Morning Routine
My bioClarity cleanser is the first thing I reach for in the mornings. It helps wake up and refresh my skin, while cleaning away oil build-up from my beauty sleep. This cleanser has been my favorite for about two years now, it is so gentel but super effective!

Next I reach for one of my spot treatments to touch on any pimples that might have shown up, or if I have none then I will still apply a thin layer to my problem areas. I either use this one from Tula or this one that comes in my bioClarity clear skin bundle. I let this dry for about three minutes before moving on to my next step. 

Currently my favorite part of my morning skincare is this Bright Boost Illuminating Serum from Neutrogena. This product literally makes my skin feel happy! It erases any dullness in my skin. A little goes a long way with this product. I wait another two to three minutes to let my skin absorb this product.

Next I use my Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar with SPF 30. This thick (but not greasy at all) moisturizer is the perfect finishing touch to my full face. I waited way too long to incorporate an SPF in my daily routine, and most people usually ignore this step, but it is so important! Especially for anti-aging purposes, and me being as fair as I am.

Before I end my routine I pop on a little of this bioClarity Eye Will Chill Eye Gel to give my undereyes a little extra wakeup boost.

Before Makeup Routine
I have fallen in love with this Tula primer!! I use it literally everyday, whether I am doing a no-makeup day or a full face! It adds a little color to your face and smoothes out all imperfections. It is seriously a dream product!

Next I swipe on the beloved Tula Cooling and Brightening Eye Balm. This is another dream product that I use every day! I also dab a little bit in the corners of my eyes and on my cheek bones after I have applied any makeup for the day. They also have the rose gold one.

Some days I only use these products and a little mascara!

Night Time Routine
I start by removing all of my makeup with the Neutrogena makeup remover wipes, literally the only makeup wipes that do not irritate my face! I also use this Yes To Micellar Water with a cotton round to make sure no makeup is left on my face before I begin my skincare routine.

Again I go to my trusty bioClarity Cleanser.

Now for my favorite part of my PM skincare, these Facial Radiance Pads by First Aid Beauty. If you don't try any other product from this post, try these! I kid you not they are little miracle workers. These pads exfoliate and tone your skin. For me they drastically improved the texture of my skin! I ran out a couple weeks ago and my replacement pack just came in the mail, the next morning after the first use my skin was plump and smoothe and bright! I let my skin absorb this product for two or three minutes.

Once again I use a spot treatment the same way I do in my AM routine.

Almost finished and I use either this bioClarity restore serum that also comes in the clear skin bundle or if my skin is feeling dry I use this First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. Beware, this particular product is very thick and can make your skin greasy if you use too much, especially if you have an oily skin type. If you have dry skin, then this product could be your saving grace!

Lastly, I use the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream. I know you're thinking...what?! But firstly, i have serious squinty eye crows feet. Secondly, it is never too early to start trying to prevent wrinkles! This product is light and truly had me seeing results in a couple weeks!

Oh and super lastly I use a homemade lip scrub every night made from coconut oil and brown sugar!

Generation Clay Brightening Mask I use this two to three times a month

Tula Detox in a Jar Exfoliating Treatment Mask I use this once a week and this jar lasts forever!!

A more affordable version of that mask is this Yes To Blueberries Mask I used this once a week before discovering the Tula one but will no doubt keep using it! This product also lasts for so long.

This Glycolic Foaming Cleanser replaces my bioClarity cleanser in my PM routine whenever I am on my period (I always breakout on my period) or having stubborn breakouts. It is a bit stronger than my bioClairty and really helps clear up pimples!

Every ten days I use these dermaplaning razors to get rid of peach fuz and layers of dead skin on my face. I always use a cleanser before and mositurize after.

Once a week I use my Linduray Microneedle Derma Roller. This tool helps with product absorbtion and aids in tightening your skin. I always cleanse my face and then spritz it with my Mario Badescu Facial Sprays before rolling.
