My Spring Skincare Routine
The recent weather change has been so bad for my skin and I’ve pretty much been going crazy trying to figure out what exactly my skin wants. **but I have finally figured it out!! My skin is back to being clear, glowy and any acne scarring is fading more and more everyday. I’m so freaking happy about it.
I have sensitive, dry skin and I’m prone to acne and eczema so I have to be careful with what products go on my face. I mostly stick to using the “clean” products at Sephora. Any products labeled “clean at Sephora” steer clear of ingredients my skin doesn’t like such as fragrances, parabens, sulfates, etc. Some of my favorite brands with clean products are Drunk Elephant, Supergoop and Summer Fridays.
You’ll see in my routine that I use quite a few Drunk Elephant products and that’s because they are just so good. I have *almost* tried their entire line and LOVE all of it. Drunk Elephant is a little on the pricey side (but well worth it) so I have had to make some hard decisions and just choose favorites to keep around on a routine basis.
SO here’s my daily routine that’s been keeping my skin clear, plump and glowy lately:
Garnier Micellar Water - the HG of Micellar Water. I’ve written a whole blog post about it here, but basically it’s just the best way to cleanse your face in the morning. You really only need to wash your face once a day (at night before bed) so that you don’t strip your face of the good oils. So I use this micellar water every morning to just gently cleanse.
Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream - my fav moisturizer ever. I’ve been using it for probably 6 months now and I’m never going back. It’s very moisturizing and sinks into the skin quickly.
Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream - I like this eye cream because it is just basic. It moisturizes well and it doesn’t ever pill up.
Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen - this SPF is definitely one of the best. It goes on really smooth and also works as a primer. SPF is always a must but especially in spring and summer when you’re spending more time outside.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick - BEST LIP BALM. So moisturizing and lasts forever.
Drunk Elephant Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser - my favorite cleanser right now. It feels light and moisturizing. My face always feels really clean afterwards but never stripped.
Summer Fridays Overtime Mask - I only use this once a week. I used to make the mistake of over-exfoliating (mixing chemical exfoliants with physical ones, multiple times a day, it was so bad). I have finally figured out that my skin only wants me to exfoliate once a week and with THIS MASK. I have tried lots of other exfoliants but this one really works the best. It always leaves my skin super smooth and glowy. Plus I can use it in the shower so it’s a time saver.
Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream - I love that I can use this morning and night. I use a just a bit more at night (especially if I just exfoliated) so that my face gets some extra moisture while I’m sleeping.
Drunk Elephant Luxury Facial Oil - I mix this Marula oil in with Lala Retro every night and it’s game changing. This is pretty much my secret weapon that I know will always help my skin. Marula oil is good for your skin in so many ways, you can read more about it here.
Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream - Again, good and basic :)
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick - You know the drill this stuff is good!!!!
