Importance of a Skincare Routine
Having a good skincare routine is very important, as you probably already know! I remember a time when I didn’t take my skincare routine seriously, and it showed. Some of the benefits I have noticed in a good skincare routine are: less breakouts and more confidence! When your skin looks good you will feel more confident and wear less makeup, which will lead to better skin!
Products I Use
Picking skincare products is a big decision. I personally think you should put a lot of thought into what brands you pick and what ingredients they use in products. Skincare products are an investment, so make sure to invest wisely. Most of the products I use are from TULA, a few select products are not. Make sure to do your research and pick products that are right for you!
Step 1: Cleanser
One of the best daily cleansers I have found is from TULA. I use their purifying face cleanser everyday in the morning and at night. It is important to wash your face daily to get rid of all of the impurities it collects throughout the day.
Step 2: Toner
Picking out a good toner is very important. That is why I use TULA’s pro-glycolic 10% resurfacing gel toner. This toner helps even out skin tone, remove dead skin cells and dirt, and helps diminish the appearance of pores.
Step 3: Acne Spot Treatment
After applying toner it is good to use an acne spot treatment if you are prone to acne breakouts or have current breakouts. I have tried several different spot treatments and love TULA’s go away acne spot treatment the best! I can see a difference in redness and size reductionthe morning after I applied the treatment.
Step 4: Moisturizer
Moisturizer is one of the most important steps of a daily skincare routine. I use two different moisturizers. In the morning I use Neutrogena’s moisturizer with SPF 15 in it. It’s very important to apply sunscreen every single day. In the evening I use TULA’s 24-7 hydrating day and night cream. It is very moisturizing and doesn’t make my face feel oily in the morning.
My daily routine is very important, but I use a few other products when needed throughout the week. I love to use Biore’s nose strips 2-3 times a week. I also use a scrub 2 times weekly. My current favorites that I alternate between are Tula’s so polished exfoliating sugar scrub, so poreless deep exfoliating blackhead scrub,and their limited edition so pumpkin exfoliating sugar scrub. My new favorite product I have found is blemish patches. They are little clear dots you can put on acne in the evening that work to remove spots that are about to pop overnight. Two other items I include in my skincare routine are TULA’s brighten up smoothing primer gel and their rose glow & get it cooling and brightening eye balm. I included their primer because it not only helps makeup application easier, but it also doesn’t clog pores and helps brighten your skin! The rose glow & get it eye balm leaves you feeling energized and ready to conquer the day. It can be easily applied under or over makeup at the beginning of the day or throughout it! I almost forgot one of the basic and most important parts of a skincare routine, taking your makeup off! My personal favorite is a wipe, I like to use Billie’s Wonder Wipes!
A Couple of Notes
This is what I have found works best for me, it may not work the same for you! This is just a guideline to help you out. While a good skincare routine will help you a lot, it is also very important to drink lots of water and eat healthy foods for clear and bright skin!
