Hello guys! If you read my last skincare post here then you know this post was in the works! You all voted on Instagram and it was such a close race but that post won to go up first but I promised I would still share my updated skincare routine! Make sure you go and check out that last post for some reference as to why this new routine is so important to me (hello cystic acne get away from me)!
The only thing I do that is not mentioned in this post is use the African Black Soap! I took these images while I was in NYC and did not travel with a giant soap block unfortunately lol (but trust me I totally thought about it I love that stuff!) But that being said enjoy and I hope you find a product or two to add into your routine!
I love two serums and use them both day and night.
The first is Intelligent Elixirs pure squalane. I buy this from Mooi Studio but it can also be found here. I use it to really moisturize my skin (and defiantly because Mooi told me it was good for me!)
The second is from my Box of Style and I have been using it for the past month and a half that I have had it! The Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum which is for brightening and has some anti-aging properties to it. Also super gentle on my skin!
I have some pretty dry skin and live in such a dry climate so these are the best ones I have tried out!
First up is a twice a week mask that I sleep in from GlamGlow. I have talked about this before because I have been using this for almost two years! It just does the trick and has never broken me out. I put it on before bed or when I am on an airplane - it does the trick!
Second is my daily moisturizer right now. I sometimes use this one from Philosophy during the day, but I honestly found that if I use this Kate Somerville exfolliant/moistuizor. I didn’t like using it day and night in the summer but since winter has come I have skipped out on Philosophy for something a bit stronger.
3. Face Wash
My face wash is kind of always on rotation - I know that is bad, but what I am using now is the African Black Soap mentioned in my last post or if I am traveling this one from Glo. I also spoke about the face that I use a little face mitt with my cleanser. I just feel like it does a better job than my fingers and I don’t like using my Clarisonic everyday!
4. The Extras
I like to start and finish my skincare routine with a little spray of my rose water. I think it is a big part in why I feel so glowy and it has some good properties for fighting bacteria also! Finally I mentioned above, but head to my last post to hear about how I manage bad acne flare ups!
