Keeping a consistent skincare routine on the daily has always been a struggle for me. To be quite frank, I just never keep up with them! It wasn’t until I found an array of products that I really enjoyed, that I began to keep a consistent routine. I find this routine to be very simple and quick, which we love for lazy gals like myself but it’s also a routine that won’t break the bank, which we also love for broke gals, sadly also like myself. I find that consistently following these 6 steps has kept my skin moisturized and breakout free for weeks!
Pre – Cleanse:
I usually wear some form of makeup on my face every day, whether it’s full glam or just some brows and mascara, the first thing I want to do when I get home is rip off all that makeup. To do so, I love to use Organic Coconut Oil which is very effective in removing all sorts of makeup, including tough mascara.
Once my skin is somewhat makeup-free, I make sure I remove all remaining makeup and buildup with a cleanser and water. My all-time favorite cleanser is the Aveeno Clear Complexion foaming cleanser. It is super gentle on my skin but also does an amazing job at removing any leftover makeup without leaving my skin feeling patchy and dry like other stripping formulas.
They always say third time’s the charm so to make sure all makeup is truly out of my face and pores I go in with the Thayers Facial Toner on a cotton round. I soak my cotton round on the solution and run it across myself in circular motions, making sure I get all the crevices and tough spots I may have not caught yet. My favorite toner from Thayers definitely has to be the Rose Petal because of its distinct smell.
My all-time favorite moisturizer also has to go to Aveeno, their Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer is a must-have for all skin types! It also has SPF 20 so it may remove an extra step in your morning routine. The Clear Complexion Daily moisturizer from Aveeno is another favorite of mine, as that one includes salicylic acid for when breakouts get out of control.
A recent addition to my everyday routine is the NEW! Awkwardly Vain’s Organic Raw Brown Sugar + Coffee Scrub. I can honestly say this product is a game-changer when it comes to keeping the skin clear and hydrated. Made with all organic and natural ingredients, this scrub makes my skin from a 4 to a 10 in no time. After having cleansed my skin, I use the scrub 2 to 3 times a week after toning. Not only does this magic solution get rid of the toughest white and blackheads but it also embarks your skin in a buffet of essential oils that leaves the skin feeling fresh and hydrated immediately.
The final rose on this episode is brought to you by Insta Natural Beauty, with their Organic Rose Water mist which I adore! I use this as my final step on my routine to lock all that moisture in place. The smell is amazing and this solution could also be used as a toner in the event that you’re all out of your favorite Thayers bottle.
