I have always been really bad at taking care of my face. I hardly ever remember to take off my make up or brush my hair out before bed. Over the past month I have made more of an effort to take care of my face. I have successfully washed my face every night except for two. Can I have a round of applause please??
See these babies? These are my holy grail, my number one, the loves of my life. OK a little dramatic right? But these things are amazing. I would say at least 90% of the time I have clear skin, all thanks to these babes.
Lets look at my every day routine. I love the Clinique 3 Step Skin Care line. I use the mild version in the face wash and the type 2 clarifying lotion, (thats the purple one.) The yellow lotion, also comes in different options. You can get the gel version or the regular version, which is the one I use. The gel formula is best for people who have oily skin. You can buy the three step set here. The next is a face oil, I use the Derma-e Radiant Glow face oil. I use this interchangeably with my Clinique moisturizer. Buy it here. The next two products are from FORMULA 10.0.6. They are both blemish creams. The first one is Rescue Me and it is a spot treatment, get it here. The second one is On Your Mark, its a blemish mark fader, helps with dark spots and acne scaring. You can get it here. And lastly, of my daily items, yes, the very typical rose water. I use rose water for everything, after my lotion, before and after my makeup and during face masks to keep them active longer. Get it here.
Alright, now on to the items I use weekly to help keep my pores clear and my skin hydrated. Keep in mind I don't use these all every week. I just pay attention to how my skin is feeling that week and use what I feel is necessary. Starting with the Bioré charcoal pore strips. Is it just me or does everyone like peeling them off and looking to see what comes out of their skin? Buy them here. Next is the FORMULA 10.0.6 face masks, I really like the Be Berry Clear illuminating peel mask and the Deep Down Detox ultra cleansing mud mask. I use the the first one if my skin is feeling dull and the second one if I feel any type of break outs coming.. typically around that time of the month. You can get them both at Ulta and they are under 10 bucks. Next is the Body Shop's Brattish Rose Fresh Plumping Mask, again I use this if my skin is not looking glowy enough. Buy it here. Then we have Mario Badescu Silver Powder. This totally sucks everything out of my pores and it's probably my favorite product. Get it here. To apply my face masks, I just use a random elf brush. I hate using my fingers! It was probably $2 at target. And again, rose water. Like I said before, I use this to keep my masks from drying out while they are on my face. Once a mask is dry it is no longer active so to make it last long you need to keep it wet. I mist my masks maybe twice and it really helps!
So there you have it ladies, everything you need for you best face.
Love ya xoxo
