Updated Skin Care Routine!

     Something very important in my beauty life is my skin! The most crucial thing about makeup, make sure to take it off before bed! A lot of people make this mistake, this can cause dirt buildup, acne, excess oily, or excess dry skin. To get the perfect canvas you have to take care of what's underneath the makeup. I stick with specific products, I've been using for years. My skin isn't big on change, so I try to stay as consistent as possible with my skin care routine. 

Step 1: Remove all of your makeup the best you can before full cleansing your face. I swear by Neutrogena: Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes in Night Calming. There are tons of high quality brand makeup wipes, personally I've tried almost all of them, and this is the best one so far! 

Step 2: Now to really cleanse the face! This is wash off any excess makeup & dirty. And remove any residue from the makeup towelettes. This facial cleanser works wonders, and doesn't give my skin any reaction! Clean & Clear: Essentials Foaming Facial Cleanser

Step 3: Time to tone your skin! Toners not only help remove any excess dirt and cleanser residue, it also restores your skins natural PH. I've been using the same toner for years, I tried switching and my skin wouldn't have it, so I stuck with what makes my skin happy! Clinique: Clarifying Lotion 2. Using a cotton round apply enough toner to fully wipe down your face. 

Step 4: Moisturize! Moisturize, moisturize. No matter your skin type, you always should add some extra moisture to keep your skin smooth and hydrated. I've fallen in love with this deep moisture night cream, my skin feels so soft after I apply it! Neutrogena: Deep Moisture Night Cream. Apply a generous amount all over the face, and neck! 

Skin routines aren't just about the regular day-to-day routines, but sometimes you need to give your skin some extra TLC! Face masks, those are my best friend, and could be yours too! I have experimented with tons of masks, it's best to pick ones suited for your skin type and skin conditions. If you don't know what's the best one, experiment! Trial and error is okay! 

My go to masks are:

Origins: Clear Improvement- Active Charcoal Mask

Apply this mask heavily all of your face, leave on until it's dry!...You're gonna look a little scary. After you remove the mask, your skin will feel tight and squeaky clean! 

St. Ives: Smooth & Nourished- Oatmeal Scrub + Mask

This is a more simple mask, you can even use it just as a gentle scrub for a quick deep clean! This mask will most definitely leave your skin feeling extra soft.  

 And there's my updated skin care routine! I hope you enjoyed, and learn about some new products.
