Show Your Skin Some Lovin'
Figuring out a skin care routine that works for you is absolutely essential, especially during the winter time. I can’t emphasize how important it is for everyone (girls AND boys) to take care of their skin.
Below, you can find a list of some of my favorite products that I use on a daily basis. Ever since I’ve paid more attention to my skin care routine, and I’ve realized what works best for me, I always feel as if I look so much better.
*Note - not all skin types are the same, so please proceed with caution when trying something new to you. Always start with a small dab to see how skin reacts!!*
Exfoliate your lips! I can’t emphasize this enough! I feel like this is the most underrated process in the beauty routine. I hardly hear people talking about it! No one wants to kiss lips that haven’t been taken care of. Flaky lips are NOT a look.
That being said, my favorite lip exfoliator is from e.l.f cosmetics. Remember to follow up the exfoliation with any chapstick of your choice!
Next, let’s talk cleansers. My recommendation comes from pixi beauty - a brand you can find at your local Target store. I have the rose cream one, and it’s the most gentle, relaxing thing ever. Once I get out of the shower, I immediately rub this on, rinse, and move on to the next step in my routine. This cleanser literally feels like a cloud is sitting on my face. My skin’s kind of sensitive, and it hates harsh chemicals, so stumbling upon this was a blessing.
For the longest time, I never understood the point of using a toner until I finally started to use one. A toner cleans up your skin. Any bacteria/dirt left behind, a good toner goes in there and gets that junk out. Since I’m obviously a pixi beauty fan girl, my toner is from them once again. Grab a cotton ball, dab some on there, and give your skin a good pat down!
I’ve had a tough battle finding the perfect moisturizer for myself, but I came across the Moisture Surge from Clinique thanks to a mini gift bag I had received, and I fell in love! Again, this moisturizer was so nourishing for my skin. The name isn’t a lie - it’s seriously so hydrating, and so relieving.
Not exactly skin care related, but to all my make-up lovers - you already know to always wash your face before going to sleep. Neutrogena used to be my go-to choice for makeup wipes, but the chemicals are way too harsh for me, and I always felt like my skin was burning! Recently, I discovered Coconut infused make-up wipes at the Daiso Japanese store in Northridge. They also have Aloe Vera ones, too! I’d definitely recommend finding a location nearest to you and trying these out.
I love learning about new products and trying ones out.
