So let's talk skin... whenever the word skin comes to mind I think of handbags duh... NO. I think of my awful teen years where I spent hours trying to conceal my horrible acne.
I remember one summer I spent at the beach I truly thought that the ocean water was helping my acne, so. I TOOK SOME OCEAN WATER HOME AND USED IT. now, that's what you call crazy.
Little did I know that this "pre-teen acne" was only temporary, but man was it rough. I found a routine that worked for me and I have been sticking to it! But you know what the major culprit is.. dry skin..! Yep that ocean water was only working temporarily .. like any toner it was drying out my acne and then boom giving my skin a minute of full clearness but I wasn't getting any moisture so it was only working counteractively, that's why a good moisturizer on top of a toner is key! Kiehls facial moisturizer is a game changer and let me tell you a little goes a long way and it works wonders.
Now that I've given you some background on my pre-teen years lets touch base into what I got going on now and I'm sure many women can relate when I type out the hated word..... wrinkles.. yep. it's an unfortunate reality but its something we have to deal with and in many ways, we can prevent them, first by using skin ceuticals anti-aging serum. It is on the pricier side... but it lasts forever!
And lastly my new favorite tool.. a jade roller! I use this sucker after my nightly routine and it has done amazing things for my skin, from tightening it to getting rid of fine lines.. and i especially use it after a night of too many glasses of wine, because it helps my face look less swelled!
So there you have it lash queens.. my 3 favorite things that I have been using on my skin but that's not all I use.. oh no siree! (when I typed that I said it out loud and Siri said "yes" ... creepy) anyways BACK TO SKIN! Below is my full routine, these products have made my skin glowy, clear and plump, I'm obsessed with all of these products and most of them you can find at your local CVS, everyone loves a good bargain right!?!?
MY ride or dies
1st. These Neutrogena wipes get all of the make-up and gross stuff off my face before I go to go town with my cleanser and toner.
Next up we have my beloved M-61 cleanser. This cleanser is on the more expensive side, but I have found that it is not harsh on sensitive skin and little goes a long way.. this bottle can last MONTHS.
This skin Ceuticals toner is my absolute go to, it helps get absolutely everything off my face that my cleanser wasn't able to ... not to mention the second I feel a blemish I know it will kill that little sucker .
Ah yes, my all time favorite. Isn't she a beauty? This moisturizer isn't too costly and truly makes your skin more vibrant and glowy. It especially helps after a sunburn when your skin is mega dry, and you need a quick fix before you start pealing or worse see blemishes...
I use Tea Tree oil whenever I feel an annoying little blemish, or if I need to brighten areas of my skin. Tea tree oil really does the job without over drying your skin!
And lastly my new beloved jade roller! It helps with making your skin look less puffy and helps with those fine lines before they turn into those hated wrinkles.
