Morning skincare routine

Finding a routine that works for me

My skincare routine has changed greatly over the past few years. From acne to wrinkles and everything in between, I’ve altered my skincare routine to help improve the clarity and texture of my skin. Be sure to check out my nightly routine here.

Cleansing

The first product used is the Aveeno Clear Complexion cream cleanser.  When choosing a face cleanser, I’m sure to pick something that gentle on my skin. Sometimes if I’m experiencing more breakouts than usual, I will use the Alba Botanica Acnedote Face and Body scrub (I also use this on my back and shoulders to help prevent breakouts). 

Toning

After allowing my face to dry, I will wet a cotton ball with Pixi Glo Tonic, which you can read a review here. After allowing my skin to dry (after a minute or so), I will use a nickel size of 5% benzyl peroxide (I’ve been using Replenix 5% benzyl peroxide  ). After using this, I allow my face to dry for around 5- 10 minutes.  Then I use Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen (you can read my review for this sunscreen here) all over my face and neck. This sunscreen won’t irritate my sensitive skin and won’t leave white cast on dark skin. 

If my skin is a bit parched

If my skin is feeling slightly drier than usually, I will moisturize with  MAC fix plus or with Tarte 4 in 1 setting spray.

Keeping up with change

I’ve realized that some products just don’t work well for me and I have to change or find something new to get my desired effects on my skin. 

What are some of your favorites products in you daily routine?
