MY SKINCARE ROUTINE

the last few months i have been OBSESSED with my skincare. really, austin is so sick of me talking about facewashes & serums & what not. i have spent a long time deciding what products are just right for my skin, what works for me, what i should & shouldn't use & all the ins & outs of my skincare routine. i've been researching & talking to literally everyone & feel like i finally have figured it out. now, i'm no skin expert, this is just what works for me but these are truly all products that i love.

i categorize my skin type as sensitive/dry to normal/dry. my skin is really, very dry. i can go to the most humid climate & still have dry skin, so i have to seriously moisturize if i want my face to last through the day. i have times where it can be really sensitive, but for the most part its pretty much normal/dry. i'm not acne prone, however when i do get acne its on the cystic side of things which really sucks. especially because i was a born picker & picking at cystic acne is the absolute worst thing to do. i try my best not to do it, but i'm human.

my cousins & i were all talking about skincare, cause like me they are obsessed, & i learned about caroline hirons. i had never heard of her before but she knows her stuff. for real. i love reading her posts & watching her videos, she is such a well of knowledge when it comes to skin, so if you haven't read or hear of her, you totally sure.

it was from her that i developed my skincare routine. i learned the importance of washing my face morning & night & adopted a dual-wash system.

1. cleanse
2. exfoliate/ tone
3. spray hydrate
4. eye cream
5. serum/oil
6. moisturize

every morning i go through this routine. i've been using the YTTP wash for three months & it has completely transformed my skin, afterwards i use my toner & then spray my face with herbivore rose water which i forgot to show! followed up with my YTTP age prevention serum, which i totally love. when i'm able i am planning to switch it out with a retinol, but for right now this one is more in my price range! i then use the eye boosting oil & after i drop the fresh oil across my forehead & cheeks, then i rub it in & follow with the dr. jart+ hydro gel, which i also totally love. 

1. makeup remover/ cleanse
2. cleanse
3. exfoliate (2x's a week)
4. tone
5. hydrate spray
6. eye cream
7. serum/treatments/oil
8. moisturize

i think the biggest change in my skin has come from the dual-cleanse i've started doing. i always felt like my makeup didn't get all taken off from my face wash, but the dual system makes my skin squeaky clean. i started using this system with the philosophy purity wash because my cousin gave me a travel size one & i have really liked it, it is so soft on my skin. i then follow up with the YTTP wash, i use a witch hazel toner because i don't think my skin needs something that will dry it with an acid. then i apply the YTTP age serum, my eye boosting oil followed with glossier's super pure which i swear by. that stuff seriously works against acne, it is amazing. everyone needs it. & after i drop the fresh oil across my forehead & cheeks, then i rub it in & follow with the dr. jart+ hydro gel, just like i do in the morning.

twice a week i skin the philosophy wash & start with my YTTP & follow through with the cure scrub which is amazing. you apply a decent amount to your face & let it sit a minute & then lightly rub your face & it peels off so many dead skin cells. it is seriously so gratifying to see all the skin come up. i'm weird like that. but i love this product, you need to use it.

  1. Nice post! The content is really very informative. These are the best skincare products one must use in their daily skincare regime. All kinds of skincare problems can be resolved only if you keep a proper skincare regime.I would like to add my favorite product too one should include in their kit is revitol skin brightener. Its the most effective cream and will invariably brighten your skin tone and give a radiant glow. Its a must try.
