So as most of you know skin can change! Different factors can contribute to that, like the weather, pregnancy or dun dun duuun — AGING! Lately I’ve noticed some changes in my skin, so I knew it was time to update my skin care routine. I’m very happy with how my skin has improved since tweaking my regimen. Today I’m sharing with you the combination of products I’ve been testing out for the past month. So let’s get into it, shall we?
Daily Day and Night routine
Step 1 // Day + Night Cleanser
Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser : The name says it, the Milky Jelly Cleanser has a cool milky jelly texture that gently melts off all the gunk on your skin. It does not foam but I promise you it cleans very well and feels very nice! Once rinsed, it leaves your skin feeling clean without stripping it of its natural oils. The formula is made with a blend of five skin conditioners. My face feels so soft and hydrated afterwards! I like to apply it to dry skin and massage it all over me face and neck, then rinse.
Step 2 // Facial Spray
Mario Badescu Facial Spray : I’ve been using this facial spray since forever and I’m still so obsessed with it. It’s probably my favorite part of cleaning my face! I must specify that it is not a toner. It’s a refreshing, soothing facial spray that gives an extra boost of hydration to your skin with a divine smell! I mist it on my face and neck, then wipe with a cotton round.
Step 3 // Serums
Day Serum : Super Bounce Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Everyone should have Hyaluronic acid in their regimen! It’s packed with mega skin boosting benefits. Hyaluronic acid is crazy moisturizing, helps improve firmness and elasticity plus so much more. I apply this serum to my face and neck every single day!
Night Serum : Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair
Newest addition to my regimen! This baby has done wonders to my skin. They know what they’re doing at Estée Lauder because this stuff is amazing. This product claims to significantly reduce the appearance of key signs of aging. I’ve noticed a difference with the firmness, the clarity, the texture and the radiance of my skin. I apply to my face and neck every single night!
Step 4 // Moisturizer (Day Only)
L’Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream: I’m a huge fan of shea butter. It’s a very nourishing and hydrating ingredient but most products I’ve used that contain shea butter tend to be heavy and oily. NOT this one! The comforting cream texture is luxurious without being too rich. It goes on so nice and sinks into skin pretty quickly, locking the moisture in. I apply this moisturizer to my face and neck every morning!
Step 5 // Skin Gym Jade Crystal Face Roller
Jade rollers are the new trend around town and I have to admit, I totally jumped in the bandwagon. Jade rollers are suppose to promote healthy blood circulation and help boost natural collagen. It can also help promote lymphatic drainage, reduce puffiness and wrinkles and improve the elasticity of the skin. Honestly, I can’t for sure say what exactly it has helped my skin with, but I can say that using a jade roller has brought a positive contribution to the improvements of my skin and well being. Using the jade roller to massage my skin feels very good and relaxing, specially when I don’t forget to put in the freezer! I use it as the last step to gently massage in all the goodness I just applied on my face. Feel good side effects are a bonus!
I use these products every week as needed, per manufacturer’s recommendations!
Earth Therapeutics Green Tea Hydrogel Under Eye Patches 2-3X / Week : I love these little things so much! Will wake my tired eyes in no time plus the cool hydrogel feels really nice!
Acure Brilliantly Brightening Facial Scrub 2-3X / Week : Possibly my favorite facial scrub of all time. This scrub is amazeballs! It leaves my skin refreshed and baby butt smooth! The granules are not too small, not too coarse and it lathers nicely when rinsing off . An all time favorite!
Juice Beauty Organic Green Apple Peel 1X / Week
Another favorite! Does a lot of great things for your skin without harmful ingredients. The formula is organic. Helps even out skin tone and improve texture. It’s recommended to use in the evening to give skin a chance to rejuvenate overnight.
