I didn’t fully realize the importance of a skincare routine until I was engaged and planning for my wedding day. I wanted to have the best skin I possibly could for the wedding and tried every beauty item/treatment I could get my hands on. Months leading up to my wedding, I started getting regular chemical peels and facials from an esthetician and she stressed how important a skincare routine was. I found the best products that worked for my skin and made it a habit of taking care of my skin daily as should you!
In this post I am going to walk you through my daily skincare routine and share some of my favorite products that have become skincare staples.
Step 1: I remove all my makeup from the day and if it is in the morning I do a quick wipe under my eyes from mascara that never seems to come all the way off. I am currently using Neutrogena wipes and have been since high school!
Step 2: I always cleanse my face after I use a makeup wipe. I don’t like the feeling the wipe leaves behind and want to start with a fresh face before I go into my routine. I use this Elemis Superfood Facial Wash and love it! It is perfect for my sensitive skin and always leaves my face smelling great and feeling refreshed.
Step 3: Exfoliate Exfoliate Exfoliate!! This step is so important and is something you should be doing at least 3 times a week. Every day I will use the Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash and about 2-3 times a week I switch it out for Rodan + Fields Micro-Dermabrasion Paste. I’ll scrub the exfoliators into my skin for 30 seconds-one minute and wash with warm water. The R+F paste makes your skin feel so smooth and soft, but can also be rough and harsh on your skin, so I don’t recommend using it more than 3 days a week. The Philosophy Microdelivery still exfoliates your skin great, but is gentler and better to use day to day.
Step 4: After I exfoliate my skin, while my pores are clean and open, I will use a face mask. My current favorite face mask is the Rose Face Mask by fresh. It is the best smelling face mask I have ever used and is so hydrating for your skin. I will use this face mask in the morning every other day after I exfoliate.
Step 5: After I wash off my face mask, I’ll spritz on some fresh Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water that really does make your face glow and smell amazing! I then follow up the glow water with my fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream. I have been using this face cream for the past year and cannot see myself switching to a new face cream anytime soon. It’s the best!
That is my super simple and easy to do every day skincare routine! While these are products I swear by daily, I have tons of other beauty products I will occasionally switch out or add in to my routine. A few other favorite skincare items I love to use are, CAUDALIE Smoothing Eye Cream, fresh Vitamin Nectar Face Mask, fresh Vitamin Nectar Face Cream, GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment, fresh vitamin Nectar Glow Powder (seriously, your face will glow!), Tarte Undereye Patches, and Tarte FRXXXTION Stick Exfoliating Cleanser.
