Hello everyone! Welcome back! I hope everyone is having a fantastic day. Today, I want to share my morning skincare routine with you guys. I will go through exactly what I use and how I use it, I will also tag the items I use in this post.
My skin is currently in this weird stage of it being oily one day and dry the next. I am taking Spironolactone so that is why my skin is being so strange. Typically, my skin is very oily and acne prone. Lately, I have been trying to listen to my skin to accommodate its needs. I try to aim to have both acne fighting and moisturizing properties in my skincare routine.
My Skincare Routine:
It depends on the day, but if I have time I will do a face mask in the morning. I have two masks from The Body Shop that I am currently alternating between and they cater to either moisturizing or clarifying the skin. I try to do a mask at least 3-4 times a week because my skin responds well to it. Lately, I have really gotten into The Body Shop products and I suggest you guys go check them out as well! They always have pretty decent sales and they offer some pretty amazing products.
I will begin with how I cleanse my skin. When I wake up, I go to the bathroom and cleanse my face with the Drunk Elephant Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser. This will wash off the oils and anything that was on my face from the night prior. I really enjoy this cleanser because it is so nice to work with and it doesn’t break me out at all. From what I can tell, there is no scent and if there is a scent I cannot smell it because it is so extremely light.
After I finish washing my face, I go in with the Biore Witch Hazel. Witch Hazel really helps clean and tighten my pores, and soothe any irritated blemishes I might have. When I apply it, I use a round cotton pad. Over the years, I have tried many different brands of Witch Hazel but the Biore Witch Hazel works for me; It does what it claims to do as well as giving my skin a cooling sensation after I apply it.
Once I wait for this to dry, I go in with Tea Tree Oil. I apply this also with a cotton pad. It smells very earthy but it does not bother me at all because the scent goes away after a few minutes. Tea Tree Oil helps with acne, blackheads, and oily skin. I have noticed a significant difference in the amount of blackheads that I have been getting compared to a few months ago when I wasn’t using this product.
Finally, I apply moisturizer. I use the Philosophy Purity Made Simple Ultra-Light Moisturizer. This moisturizer saves my skin! It is so incredibly light and it doesn’t cause my face to break out or get super oily throughout the day which is amazing. I have always had such an issue in the past with moisturizers so it is really nice to find something that works for me.
I try to make my morning skincare routine as simple as possible because I am very busy. This routine works well for me and it is very time friendly as well. I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know if you have tried any of these products out and how you like them! I would absolutely love to hear from you. Have a great day everyone:)
