They never told us that skincare would require a PHD in cosmetic science. These days, it seems we need to be careful and knowledgeable to navigate the world of beauty. After all, we want flawless skin but what we don’t want is to spend enormous amounts of money on products we don’t know how to use. So, that’s why I felt the need to compose, in chronological order, when to apply what, in the morning and evening. AND then I wanted to share it with you!
This post is sponsored. Being an ambassador means I represent the Body Shop by sharing my truthful reviews and thoughts. They were kind enough to gift me these products.
Best order for your skincare products:
Right now, I’m really into serums that reduce pores, brighten and add a youthful glow. That’s why I switched to Clarin’s Pore Control. Also, I recently went to the Body Shop in Santa Monica and the wonderful staff showed me a number of gentle enough products for sensitive skin like mine. Check out their stuff and make sure you take a peek at their Tea Tree line which is great for acne prone skin.
✓at home facial peel
You should be doing weekly facials or face masks at home. You can get facials done by professionals but it’s costly. If you can’t afford going seasonally (4 times a year) then twice a year should be feasible. I usually forget to get mine in the bustle of life but when I do I feel so good!
Sunday’s are my self-care days in which I pay extra attention to my skin. I replenish and nourish it depending on what it needs that week. I usually do one of MANY masks that are all affordable and work well. No BS here. Pay special attention to the
mask that you leave on overnight and wake up to clearer skin!
✓moisturizer, night cream or facial oil
I sometimes simplify my PM routine when I want to give my skin a break by simply washing and moisturizing. However, this step by step is my go-to routine. Remember that between each step, make sure your products have time to seep in to your skin. I really love this new line of Vitamin E products from the Body Shop. It conditions, nourishes, and protects the skin. It also has Community Fair Trade shea butter from Ghana that melts in, leaving it smooth and soft. And, as always, it’s cruelty free.
I hope you found this very helpful especially if you suffer from adult acne or prefer vegan products not tested on animals. Most everything I use is vegan and cruelty free. What’s something you swear by in your skincare routine? Let me know below!
