MY Routine!

My Skin

I have a very pale complexion, with combination sensitive skin. I also suffered from enlarged pores. I have lived in South Florida my entire life, and would wear sunscreen everyday on my arms and neck but not my face. As such I had some sun damage, and some issue with a nice texture on my skin. At 30 (I’m  32 meow) I decided it was time to put on my big girl pants and start really taking care of myself. Diet, exercise, and SKINCARE!

I don’t like under-exxagerating how bad my skin was, because truly whats the point- I had bad skin. Breakouts, pores, flaking. All because I didn’t take proper care of it. It was MY FAULT. So when I owned up to that (rather then blame genetics) I started to see a VAST improvement.

My Routine

Morning

First CleanserClean It Zero From Banila Co. This is a great first cleanse in the morning. Sometimes I do not do a double cleanse in the morning, but if I wake up and my face is extra greasy then I do this. I can say I usually do a double cleanse in the morning. at least 5 times a week.
Foaming CleanserSecret Key Snow White Foaming Cleanser. I love this in the morning,. my complexion looks brighter and my face feels great.
TonerSunday Riley Martian Toner – I have been LOVING this. I switched up from my usually SK-II Toner
Treatment Lotion – La Mer the Treatment Lotion, Helps all my skincare work a lot better.
EssenceSK-II Facial Treatment Essence*– Put a small amount in my hands and gently pat into my face. I let it absorb completely before moving on
SerumsSK-II Genoptics Aura Essence,Skin INC Daily Dose Serum (Reborn, Repair Rebalance)
Eye CreamCaudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream. I got this as a deluxe sample and I ADORE it
Emulsion– Sunday Riley Tidal Water Cream. Another new addition to my routine, and I absolutely love it
Moisturizer – La Mer Soft Moisturizing Lotion. Love love love this!
I also apply Nature Republics Aloe Vera Gel all over my body and chest and neck area.

Evening/nighttime

First Cleanse – Clarins Cleansing Milk with Alpine Herbs– This leaves my face clean, and takes off all my makeup and is so refreshing!
Foaming CleanserLa Mers The Cleansing Gel, which is amazing, and during hormonal breakouts I use Tatcha’s Rice Enzyme Cleanser. I found a big difference when I catered my cleansers to certain times of the month, and different instances as well.
TonerBenton BHA Aloe Vera Toner
Exfoliate – Peter Thomas Roth Un Wrinkle Peel Pads
Pore Serum– COSRX Summer Pore Minish Serum– This is soso so good and it leaves my skin looking amazing and my pores looking noticeably tighter!
Treatment Lotion– La Mer The Treatment Lotion

SerumsEstee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, La Mer Renaissance Serum*, both of these are EXCELLENT, and I just have to use the tiniest amount of each
Eye CreamCaudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream
EmulsionSunday Riley Tidal Water Cream.
MoisturizerCreme de La Mer from La Mer* Holy grail product, my favorite skincare product!

I also apply Nature Republics Aloe Vera Gel all over my body and chest and neck area.

 

Also if my skin is very sensitive I will spot treat with the Indigo Soothing Triple Recovery Cream from Tatcha. If I wasn’t wearing a lot of makeup I will use the La Mer Micellar Water for my first cleanse at night to Midday.
