My Skincare Regimen

I was pretty lucky as a teen to have great skin. Then I ended up being that mid-twenties person who’s skin acted up and it was all downhill from there. For years, I was convinced that I had acne prone skin. Well turns out, I have sensitive skin that breaks out usually when I’m stressed {which obviously never happens…}. Once I started treating it like that, my skin really cleared up and looked great! So…here are the products I’m using right now. I think mostly all of these I’ve been using for a at least a couple of months, so I feel pretty good about them.

1. Korres Greek Yoghurt Cleanser : This cleanser works great–it takes off most of my daily makeup, which is helpful and it foams a little bit, which I do like. I’ve been switching back and forth between this and the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser. Both are great and work similarly.

2. Clarisonic Mia Fit Facial Cleanser: I had a Clarisonic a while ago and my skin went bananas so I ended up giving it away. I decided to give it another try and am really glad I did. I have the Radiance brush head, which is not very aggressive, but definitely helps brighten up my face. After I bought it, I realized I was never using it because it took so long at bedtime and I just wanted to GO TO SLEEP. So I moved it to the morning and it’s made all the difference.

3. Drunk Elephant Shaba Complex Eye Cream: Now that I’m solidly in my 30s, I finally got onto the eye cream bandwagon. I’ve tried a couple of different ones, but I’ve really enjoyed this one. It’s very light and I feel like my eyes are a lot brighter and seem less tired–which is impressive given that I work nights and never sleep.

4. Fresh Vitamin Nectar Moisturizer: I love this moisturizer. It feels so nice on the skin, but is not heavy and greasy. My only complaint is that it doesn’t have SPF in it, but luckily I use a tinted moisturizer that has SPF.

5. First Aid Beauty Retinol Serum: I love First Aid Beauty All their products are specifically for sensitive skin and it really doesn’t irritate the skin at all.

6. Herbivore Blue Tansy Resurfacing Mask: Two awesome things about this mask: it’s blue and it smells so earthy. I think the smell may be a love or hate thing, but I personally like it. This also has the advantage of not being harsh on the skin either–but has definitely helped minimize my old acne scars.
