Skin Care


PRODUCTS THAT WORK + CURRENT FAVES


HEALTHY + HAPPY SKIN

I am fortunate enough to have skin that can handle almost any product without breaking out or having any other problems. I think this is due to my very persistent skincare routine for both morning and night. When I do breakout, it can be really bad due to my cystic acne, so I never, ever forget to do my routine (like, literally ever). Over the past year or so, my skin has become rather sensitive and quick to become dry, so I usually buy hydrating products and am a bit more mindful. However, with that said, I love to experiment with skin care and rarely use the same products again (unless I love them). My everyday basics always include makeup remover, face wash, rose water spray and moisturizer.

I think it’s really important to establish a morning and evening skin care routine that’s perfect for your skin, and do it every day! I cannot stress this enough. If you do a skin care routine once a week, it is not going to be near as effective as if you do it every day! Below is what I do, and I advise you to try it and compromise it to work for your own skin, because everyone is different and must find what works for them!


Morning

  • Wash your face first thing when you wake up with a cleanser.
  • Mist your face with rose water spray.
  • Apply moisturizer to your face and neck – make sure it has a SPF!
  • Apply sunscreen to your face and neck.
  • If your face is super puffy, use the ice roller and jade roller.
  • Once a week (or as needed) apply under eye patches for 15 minutes, or however long the instructions say.
  • Once every one-two weeks, do a face mask.
  • Try super hard to not touch your face if you haven’t just washed your hands (I still struggle with this).

Night

  • Remove make-up.
  • Wash your face with cleanser.
  • Mist your face with rose water spray.
  • Apply a soothing night cream.
  • Apply eyelash growth serum to eyelids and eyebrows.
  • If I have bad breakouts, I have a prescribed retinoid prescription and will apply that to the areas. However, this makes your skin super dry so if you do use this make sure to apply your moisturizer extra-good the next morning!
  • Apply lotions to entire body.
  • Apply lip mask.
  • Every two weeks, wash your makeup brushes! I just use hand soap and warm water to do so.
