Hello loves! I hope you all are doing your best to keep up with your skincare routine (if you have one) or just taking care of your skin in general. I’ve been seeing a lot of people saying that this quarantine has their skin going haywire. I’d have to say that I’m part of that group as well.
Now, I can admit that I’m not the best at taking care of my skin. I know, I know…that’s terrible, but I’ve been doing better for the most part. I found some different products that I’ve used fairly consistently for over a month. I decided that since I’ve been using these enough to say I have somewhat of a routine going, that I would show you guys what my current routine is looking like. I do have a 2019 mini skincare routine if you’d like to read that post as well!
Step 1: Cleanse face
The first thing I do of course is clean my face. The products in this step are mostly the same from my 2019 routine. If It’s the end of the day and I have makeup on, then I’ll use these Neutrogena face wipes (pictured bottom) to wipe my makeup up off. If not, then I’ll get straight into cleaning my face.
I still use a spin brush to cleanse my face, but I did change the brand I use. Now I use the Vivitar facial power brush (pictured right). I really like it and I love that it has a cover to go over the spin brush and comes with a travel case. I also still pair it with raw African black soap(pictured left). I love the black soap and have yet to find a reason to stop using it.
Step 2: Nourishing facial oil
After cleansing my face, I need to get the moisture back. This is where I start to add in new products. One day my friend and I went to Tj Maxx and I decided to look for some skincare products because I wanted to do better. Listen, if you’ve never gotten facial products from Tj Maxx, then I highly recommend! They have so many products and they’re all so inexpensive!
There is where I found this beauty. This is the Pearlessence Argan and Vitamin E oil. I am loving it! My face feels so smooth after using it. I love that it has a dropper too. It makes it so much easier to apply. I just put a few drops on my face and rub it in. I do try to wait a minute before going to the next step just to let it sink it.
Step 3: Face moisturizer
Lastly, after letting the oil absorb for a minute or two, I put on a face moisturizer. Along with the face oil, I found this beauty at Tj Maxx as well. This is the Skin Therapist day and night Hydraboost face cream (a mouthful I know). This cream has a mix of so many great products like Jojoba oil, Aloe vera, and Hyaluronic Acid. With the combination of this face cream and the oil, my face always feels nice and moisturized! If I ever plan on wearing makeup that day, then I give it time to absorb in my skin to help my face look even more flawless when I put my makeup on.
My skincare routine is super short, but not everyone needs a lot of products in their routine. Sometimes it just takes a few two or three products. Have you guys tried any of these products?
What’s a skincare product that’s a staple in your routine?
