Hey you guys! It’s that time again! The time when the temperature drops and whatever products you used for the summer and fall seem to be doing absolutely no good for your skin in this cooler (or if you live on the East coast: FRIGID) weather! For a couple of months it seemed like the skin on my face wanted to everything except cooperate. I’m prone to breakouts. I know this. I’ve accepted it. I live with it. What I wasn’t used to was this extremely dull, dry, lackluster appearance I had going on. I will admit that, especially during the holiday season, I had been extremely lackadaisical with my skincare routine and boy was I paying for it! I mean I thought splashing some water on my face and applying some random moisturizer was good enough. Ummm not even because 1) The temperatures in Los Angeles had dropped to ridiculous levels I hadn’t felt in a while so whatever moisturizer I was using wasn’t being effective and 2) I had Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping to do! (That’s my excuse) Just the stress of the holidays was starting to show on my face so I knew at this point that I had to start fixing the damage I had done. But the sugar I consumed during the holidays was somewhat worth it….LOL!
So for the last few weeks I’ve been really diligent in properly washing and moisturizing my face as well as implementing a mask weekly and I’m seeing great improvement! I’d like to credit it to my new routine! So check out what I’ve been using! These are very easy to find products which have been really good to me this Winter season! Let’s Go!
Let’s start off with the cleanser….because well duh…! First I cleanse my skin with Olay Regenerist Luminous Brightening Cream Cleanser . I love this product so much! It makes my skin so good and moisturized, even before I apply my usual moisturizer! I definitely recommend this cleanser!
I absolutely love this Dickinson’s Pore Perfecting Toner to wipe off any remaining residue from my face after I’ve got through cleansing. Makes my skin feel super refreshed!
Now I use Honest Beauty Even Bright Everyday Moisturizer when I need something light on my face before I apply my makeup for the day. This light moisturizer does the job! And I’ve noticed some improvement with the “after pimple” spots on my face when using this. I was gifted this moisturizer from Jessica Alba of the Honest Beauty company when I attended a taping of the FAB LIFE show a few weeks ago. Check out what else I got here on my INSTAGRAM!
Now for those days where I’m not wearing any makeup or I want that extra moisture for my night time face washing routine time I use Cetaphil’s Moisturizing Lotion. It’s a great mosturizer and a little goes a long way! I get my moneys worth using this product!
And last, When I want to do a goooood mask treatment I use Aztec Secrets Indian Healing Bentonite Clay. It claims to be to most powerful clay on Earth; I have no doubt about it yet! This stuff is TIGHT when it dries! When mixed with Apple Cider Vinegar (I recommend Braggs brand) this makes for an excellent mask! Great for pulling out any impurities on your face!
These are my current favorite products to keep my skin from going crazy on me! If i come across any other fantastic products I’ll be sure to let you all know!
