My Current Skincare Routine!

Having trouble with your skin? Start a skincare routine fitted for your skin type!

Having a skincare routine is the first step towards improving your skin. It does take some time to find the perfect products that work well for your personal skin situation. No skin is the same! Thats the beauty of skincare, there are so many options available 🙂

If you don’t have the time or money to spend do a ton of products to test out on your skin, I recommend seeing a licensed esthetician or dermatologist. They can provide you their expertise and recommendations of what skincare products you personally need to improve or maintain your skin.

I have seen estheticians throughout the past few years and I have LOVED it. The overall experience as the customer definitely guided me towards pursuing the profession for sure!

My skin care routine has changed throughout the years but I’m confident in saying that I have found a stellar routine that works for my specific skin.

I hope you enjoy reading about these fantastic products!

1.) Exfoliator

St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub

My fiancé actually got me hooked on this product about six months ago. I personally love the apricot scent! Before using St. Ives I was using Neutrogena scrubs, but this stuff really does the job well (and affordably).

I like my exfoliators to remove the dead skin as well as prepare my skin for my cleanser that I immediately use following this step (smooth and squeaky clean).

I typically only use this product every other day depending on how my skin is doing that week! I love using this product in the morning to start my day with a fresh clean slate 🙂

2.) Cleanser

Clinique Liquid Facial Soap (Oily Skin Formula)

I have been a Clinique skincare fan for YEARS! (yes, literally years). I have always had at least one product of theirs in my skincare routine since I was about fourteen years old. I began my first skincare regimen with Clinique’s 3-Step Routine and never looked back! Its great stuff.

I have used both the dry and oily skin formulas and my skin, more recently, has been working amazingly with the oily skin formula.

What I love most about this cleanser is that it doesn’t leave any type of film or residue on the face after application. It gives a fresh, cooling sensation with a clean feeling after cleansing!

Cleanser Tool

Clarisonic Mia 2 Facial Cleansing Brush

The fact is… this tool is what truly improved my skin overall. The Clarisonic gets all of the dirt out out of my pores and truly CLEANS my skin. This is way more effective than using your hands. This tool works with any cleanser that you have. You can also purchase different brush heads to use for different purposes like firming, plumping, blackhead removal, even applying your foundation! (want a review on their foundation brush head? I love mine!!)

I know this is a pricey item… but again it’s so worth it. Save for it! Do it!

3.) Toner

Sanitas Skincare Brightening Peel Pads

Jaclyn Hill got me into this brand back in 2015 from one of her YouTube videos:

I initially tried their VitaRich moisturizer and LOVED it so much. I kind of strayed away from the brand once I ran out of the moisturizer simply because this brand can be kind of pricey… but so worth it! Especially with this product!!

I use this product every other day so that my skin doesn’t dry out from over using it. This product has completely removed all the texture on my forehead and chin area. I had under the surface bumps that weren’t coming through with ANY product that I tried… until this!

This will always be a staple in my routine!

4.) Serum

Sanitas Skincare VitaRich Serum

After trying the Sanitas Skincare line again I found myself wanting to try more and more products. I kept falling in love with so many different things! Especially this.

Anything from Sanitas that has “VitaRich” within the title, (serum, moisturizer, cleanser), it’s going to be amazing and nourishing.

This serum completely rejuvenates my skin and gives my skin a natural glow all day with moisture. Im never dry throughout the day or night with this product! This doesn’t feel like a thick product sitting on the skin, rather, the skin just absorbs it amazingly.

5.) Moisturizer

Sanitas Skincare Vitamin C Moisturizer

Yet again… another Sanitas product!! What can I say… they’re phenomenal!

The Vitamin C moisturizer paired with the VitaRich serum is an absolute dream for my skin. The Vitamin C gives my tons of moisture while controlling the oil throughout my t-zone.

It’s not a mattifying moisturizer, but it’s not completely luminous either. It’s perfectly in-between!

6.) Spot Treatment

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

This product has most recently been introduced into my skincare routine. I love using this product whenever I feel a pimple or breakout coming through. I put it on at night, then in the morning it’s completely brought forward and dried out! Definitely recommend this product to any skin type that has the occasional breakout!

Thank you guys so much for reading about my current skin care routine! I hope I have even some guidance to my combination skin peeps out there!!

Just always remember that you are beautiful. Everyone struggles with something in their life and appearance. Spread love and love yourself. You’re never alone! It’s all journey, enjoy it.

Stay tuned for my next post!
