I think we allll could use a little self care right now, am I right?! Today I’m sharing my highly requested updated skincare routine with you all. I’ve searched high & low for products that work for me & so far this combo has done wonders for my skin! Before we dive in I’ll share a little background – my skin is typically pretty normal/occasionally a little dry. As for my diet, I normally eat whatever I want (ya girl loves carbssss) but I do usually avoid sugar! I also get a monthly hydrafacial at my local medspa & if you follow along on insta you know I SWEAR by them! Read on for my entire at home AM + PM routine!
The first part of my routine starts in the shower! Every morning I cleanse with my Skinmedica AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, it’s super gentle & so refreshing! About 1-3 times per week I follow with my Zo Skin Health Dual Action Scrub. I normally focus this on my T-zone because that’s where my skin gets the most congested.
Post shower I love to go a little overboard on the hydration, especially this time of year! I always start with my eye products, layering the La Mer Lifting Eye Serum over top of their Eye Balm Intense! I’ve seen such a significant improvement in my undereye area since using this duo! For the face, I use Skinmedica’s HA5 followed by Zo Skin Health Power Defense. I’ve been using HA5 for a few years now & it’s by farrrr my favorite product in my arsenal! Hyaluronic acid has so many benefits including immediate hydration & improved appearance of skin texture! If I’m applying makeup after my skincare I will apply this Zo Skin Health Pore Refiner to my T-zone, I always thought a pore refiner was just an unnesecary extra step UNTIL I tried this! It’s the real deal!!
I normally finish off with a quick swipe of chapstick – recently Aquaphor Lip Repair has been my go-to! I didn’t use chapstick very much at all until I got lip filler (full video on filler here) since then, I don’t go anywhere without chapstick!
At the end of each day I always wipe my face off with these makeup wipes – whether I’m wearing makeup or not. After that I use my Zo Skin Health Complexion Renewal Pads – these have been a GAME CHANGER in my routine! They help remove all the extra dirt/makeup/debris that your makeup wipes miss. Next, I apply a small amount of the Zo Skin Health Retinol over my entire face – I normally use this every night because it’s only 0.5% & it doesn’t irritate my skin. Retinol helps fight acne, reduce wrinkles & stimulate collagen! I always follow my retinol with a moisturizer – I love this Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque because it’s so lightweight & absorbs quickly!
Last, if I have any breakouts I spot treat them with the Zo Skin Health Aknetrol which is 10% benzoyl peroxide. I always apply this SO sparingly because I have given myself a little chemical burn with it, but it’s seriously the best acne treatment I’ve tested!
Below are a few other items/products I use on occasion when I feel like I need a little extra skin boost!
Patchology FlashPatch Restoring Night Eye Gels – these patches deliver retinol & peptides to provide intense hydration for the eye area! They’re also currently 25% off with the code CELEBRATE!
LightStim for Acne – I’ve shared this so many times but it’s been such a huge help to reduce breakouts in a flash! It’s also super easy to travel with!
Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks – I obviously love eye masks LOL I love throwing these on under big sunglasses on a Sunday morning coffee run!
Glow360 HA/H20 – Another hyaluronic acid product I love! This one is thicker so I use this when I feel like I need a little extra moisture!
& that’s FINALLY it! I know that was probably a little bit of a skincare overload but I love all these products & have found a combo of them works best for me! Any skincare products you swear by?! Drop them in the comments below so I can try them out!
