We all know that makeup is a great tool to enhance your natural beauty. But if your skin is not clean, then all those cosmetics on your face are just icky and clogging your pores. A glammed up face starts with nice, clean skin! So today I thought I would share with y’all the products I use to keep my face fresh. Let’s get started!
As you can see, my morning skincare routine is just about as simple as you can get. First, I wash my face with Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser. This mild wash gets all the overnight grease and dirt off my face really gently, and doesn’t leave it feeling tight or stripped. Instead, it is soft and supple! After washing, I apply Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. This is another product that I have mentioned several times before on my blog. I love how simple it is–no crazy scent or texture, just good old moisture! Plus, a little goes a long way so a single bottle will last you for months.
It’s no secret that I love to wear me some makeup, but when it’s time to go to sleep, I make sure that it is all OFF! To do so, I use my Clarisonic Mia 2 with Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Foaming Scrub in Pink Grapefruit. In my opinion, if you wear makeup, you NEED the Clarisonic in your life! No matter what cleanser you use, dirt and grime won’t get completely out of your pores if you just wash your face manually. This little gadget is a game changer. I’ve had mine for about eight months now and my complexion has never looked better or felt smoother. I can’t be without it! My makeup even goes on better since there’s no gunk trapped in my pores.
I love to use the Grapefruit Scrub with my Clarisonic. Because it has acne medication in it, zits are kept away! The scent is also refreshing. Also, don’t be alarmed by the term “scrub”–the tiny microbeads are gentle enough so you can use this product daily.
After applying the Clinique Moisturizer again, I use Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask as a spot treatment. Yes, I do look a bit funny going to bed with black dots on my face, but when I wake up, any zit that I have has shrunk! I highly recommend this product if you are looking for something to clear your pores and take care of your breakouts! This formula is thick, so all you need is a little dot and you’re good to go.
So there ya have it..a look at my morning and night skincare routines! These are the products I use to make sure my face is fresh, clean and ready for makeup! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
