My Updated Daytime Skin Care Routine

Hey Dolls!

In June I posted a skin care routine. It was at the time the best skin care routine I had done. I felt that my skin was clear and visibly soft. Sadly, I experienced some breakouts (I am not sure exactly what caused the breakouts.) and that routine was not helping me get rid of the breakouts. Naturally, I switched up my routine and I now have clear skin (again), visibly soft skin (again), and a more even tone to my skin. With such amazing results I figured it would be a perfect idea to share my skin care routine. In today's post I will be discussing my daytime skin care routine. Wednesday I will post my night time routine (So stay tuned!). So, without further a do let's jump into it!

  • I begin with washing my skin with cool water and Alpha Hydrox Foaming Face Wash. I pump one pump of the face wash into my hands and then I gently wash my face and neck area.
  • I then rinse off the face wash.
  • 2x a week I will use True Blue Spa's Green Tea Fizzy Foaming Face Mask in the mornings to soothe my skin. Or I will use papaya soap as a mask. It helps even my skin and give it a natural glow. (With continuous use.)
  • Once I have finished with my face mask I will then take a cotton ball or cotton pad and apply a thin layer of witch hazel to my face. Witch Hazel helps balance the skin's pH and soothe the skin.
  • Due to my oily skin I refrain from using a moisturizer when I apply makeup. For SPF I usually use a primer or foundation with it. If I am not going to wear makeup I will mix Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Clean and Clear's Advantage Oil-Free Acne Moisturizer and then apply it to my face. I use the moisturizer because it has an SPF of 15 and it has salicylic acid in it.
  •  Then I use Benefit's It's Potent eye cream under my eyes. If my eyes are extremely dry I will use the Elf refresh roll in conjunction with my eye cream.  
  • Once that is all finished I apply Carmex to my lips.
That's all folks!

This routine is similar to my old one I have just changed up some of my products. The routine has worked wonders for me and I am sure you Dolls will love it!
