Everyone’s skin is different and reacts to every product differently than others but if you have combination, dry or oily skin these will help you because I’ve faced all.
(I’ll write if a certain product is best suited for what type of skin type. If nothing is mentioned, all skin types will like it)
Ok so let’s start off what I use when I first wake up. I usually just wash my face to emulsify the oils and then wipe it off with a towel. Then I apply the Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer. It’s a drugstore product but unlike the products below, this is a more natural product which has no harsh chemicals, dyes, or other harmful things for your face. That was a big part of why I switched to this. It also works as well as the products below, moisturizes really well but doesn’t make my skin oily, plus its way more affordable.
Before I used to use Tatcha Moisture Rich Silk Cream in the winter (The sample size was only .5 oz, but it lasts a while) and the Clinique moisturizing gel in the summer. The thing was though, the Tatcha one is good for drier and sensitive skin types. It really replenishes is and makes your skin better. This is a product you’ll have to invest in because it costs $150 for a 1.87 oz tub, BUT I promise you, it lasts a long time. I had the .5 oz one and used it for months (I still have some left over after using it all winter).
If you have oilier and more acne prone skin, I suggest you get the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. This literally feels like putting water on your skin. I use it in the summer a lot because it doesn’t make my face breakout and in a weird way it controls the oil on my face.
Throughout the day, I don’t really moisturize as much. Sometimes I do it after I’ve been out all day and kinda just wash up a bit, but most times I just moisturize in the mornings and at night.
Before I go to bed I wash my face with AVEENO Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub. Honestly for me, face washes don’t really do much besides get rid of oil and freshen up my face about it, that’s about it. This is great if you have oily skin, darker spots on your face or both even.
I used to use the Olay Foaming Face Wash for sensitive skin, but it left a weird residue behind. It’s not really noticeable at all, but the weather started to get warmer so I started using the Aveeno above. That’s the only complaint I have about it though. This is a really nice product to you if you have drier, sensitive skin. It doesn’t dry your skin out more than it already is and if you have something like eczema on your face, this would work really well.
Once I wash my face, I like to apply this Vitamin C serum called Radha Beauty Vitamin C Serum. It’s really nice and light enough for everyday use. It smells a little like coconut oil and quickly absorbs into your skin. I love that it also doesn’t leave it feeling greasy at all so that’s amazing. The thing is with this, I really love that this quickly produces results. I had a few breakouts on my skin and within a week they were gone with no scars. A few of my older scars also had started to fade.
After this, I apply the Simple Moisturizer from above.
A few times a week I like to use the Clinique Clarifying Lotion #2. This is really great. I didn’t really see much of an improvement on my skin after using this, but the stuff that comes off with it is AMAZING. I use it at night once a week after I wash my face. You just pour some onto a cotton pad and wipe it all across your face and neck. The amount of gunk that comes off is so surprising. I don’t even wear makeup and so many things come off from dirt left behind even after washing my face with soap, to the color left on my neck from a scarf which I can’t see.
I still use this because I feel so much better knowing all these hidden things are off my face. They also have one for dry skin and oily skin. (Mine is combination). It literally feels like wiping water on your face and it kinda just dries away.
Every three weeks I use the Adovia Dead sea facial mask. It’s nice and thick and definitely smells like mud. Even after one use, my skin feels brighter and looks cleaner. I really recommend this to anyone because it kinda just gives your skin a little boost.
Every six weeks I like to DermaRoll. If you guys are interested in a more in-depth post on that, comment below. I like to use the OZ Naturals Vitamin C serum. This one is a little bit thicker than the one mentioned above.
If you’re lazy like me and don’t always have time to sit and apply products, get this. Even if I don’t Dermaroll, I use this once a week at night without lotion to let this just sink into my skin. It’s really nice and does what it’s supposed to, clear up my skin.
Hope this helped some of you,
