Current Skincare Routine: AM/PM

I have been searching for a skincare routine that works for me for what feels like years! I have finally felt like I have found the best mix of products + brands that have helped me gain confidence in my skin! I have tried all these products for about 3-6 months and can truly so they have worked for me and my skin!

There are a mix of low budget and high budget products, but I have felt like my skin is worth the splurge + most of these products have lasted me at least 3 months! I want to do everything I can now to prevent pre-mature aging, and I can confidently say my skin has been happier than ever since being consistent and investing in my skincare!

My AM Routine

Rinse with Cold Water:

I don’t wash my face in the mornings, because all the oils and skincare from the night before makes my skin so smooth! I typically just do a quick rinse with cold water to help tighten my pores and wake me up!

Moisturize:

I have tried A LOT of moisturizers, and let me tell you I am picky haha! I have loved Tula’s Day and Night Moistrizer but it does not have sunscreen in it. Use my girl Blake’s Tula Code for 15% off (blakehealey)

I was gifted Skin Authority’s Age Defining Moisturizer and so far I am liking it. I have been using it about a week in the mornings because it has SPF in it! It has felt great on my skin and has worked well under my makeup. The price tag is a bit high, but it does have some other Age defying features in it that typical moisturizers don’t have!

I am still in search of a middle price ranged face lotion that contains SPF! My fav site for clean beauty is Credo, so I will be testing several out from there soon!

My PM Routine

Wash:

So honestly, I personally don’t think face wash plays a huge role in your skin care routine! Your face wash cleans your face from dirt & makeup then is completely rinsed off. It is not sitting or soaking into your skin. So with that said I will use any face wash or soap (but I do try and stay away from fragrances).

I have used Tula, Skin Authority, Neutrogena, Burts Bees Baby body wash, Cetaphil, and they all do they job! I think saving money on a face wash in order to invest in skincare that soaks into your skin is the way to go!

Retinol:

Retinol is amazing to skin smoothing, plumbing, and reducing fine lines! I love using a retinol but am still in search of a clean beauty brand option post pregnancy!

Oil Up:

OIL IS LIFE! I am absolutely obsessed with this Peet Rivko Facial Oil. I tried several oils before this, and this one takes the cake! It does not me breakout and does not my any breakouts worse. They also sell a mini oil for only $10 if you guys wanted to test it out before buying the larger option!

Eye Moisturizer:

Under the eyes, around the eyes, under the eyebrows, and into my smile lines, this moisturizing lift cream is bomb! One tiny pump goes a long way, and although it is a higher price point the bottle lasts about 2.5 months! Skin Authority has some other products I am excited to try as well, and I will keep you guys updated!!
