Sooooo many fans have asked for my skincare routine, so I decided to be generous and share my secrets.
I'm kidding!! ...but I did receive some requests ;)
My routine consists of three crucial steps:
1. Cleanser/Micellar Water
A lot of the products I use are from the brand "Simple." This post is not sponsored--I just love their brand! They don't add any harsh chemicals or preservatives, making it perfect for sensitive skin. Even if you don't have sensitive skin, I recommend using products made for sensitive skin. It changed my life.
Also, if you don't wear SPF during the day what are you doing?! I don't care if you "don't need it"! SPF of at least 15 should be worn every day, even if it's raining! I was raised by a mom whose worst enemy is the sun, so you can find me enjoying the outdoors with SPF 50, a hat, and oversized sunglasses.
You'll find everything I use is very affordable. Don't get me wrong, I love splurging on some good skincare, but I don't think you need to spend hundreds to find quality skincare products.
These are the products I use on the daily:
LINKS TO PRODUCTS:
The aloe vera gel is for spot-treating. It might be a little unconventional, but I find it works much better than things like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.
I'm also a huge fan of Korean brands like Missha, but I find that some of them irritate my skin. When in doubt, I always revert to these six products. I've tried it all when it comes to drugstore products. Nothing compares to these six beauties.
I also like to put some castor oil on my eyelashes and eyebrows to help them grow longer, using a clean mascara wand.
Some things to keep in mind:
Pat with your towel. Never rub.
Squeeze product onto the back of your hand instead of your fingers. That way you won't waste as much product.
Always apply creams with an upward motion on your face. We're trying to reverse gravity here!
Use your fingers and tap your face lightly. This helps the product absorb better.
For micellar water, use a cotton pad and get rid of all that gunk.
And just for the cherry on top:
P.S. I'm not a dermatologist, but all of the products I recommend are safe to use. It's up to you to determine what is best for your skin since everyone has different skincare needs. This routine works for me, but it might not work for you! (but since all of these products are meant for sensitive skin if they don't work for you feel free to comment below. I'm genuinely curious to hear your story.)
