Skincare Routine

My skincare routine is pretty simple compared to some, but I wanted to share with you the products I’ve been using and loving this year. I like to keep things simple, because I know if I add too many things into the mix they will just expire in my drawers. I have pretty normal skin, although sometimes my nose will get dry if I start slacking on exfoliation/moisturizer. My routine has definitely evolved over the years…At one point it just consisted of makeup wipes if I was lucky.. cringe!

 

In the morning I’m rushing out the door to class, so I quickly swipe my face (on the exfoliating side of the pad) with this cleansing toner to neutralize and refresh my skin. I was looking for an alcohol free toner because I hated the chemical smell in most toners and I don’t really see how alcohol could be good for the skin. This is the first one I came across and I’ve loved it so much that I just repurchased it again at Whole Foods. I follow up with this moisturizer and apply either this or this (which sadly just ran out) to moisturize my lips. Every once in a while I get fancy and reach for big sample of this vitamin C serum, which instantly brightens up your skin. It’s supposed to help even out skin tone, but I don’t use it regularly enough to notice any changes. Next I apply a sunscreen all over my face, then use this eye cream which also contains sunscreen (although I wish it had more SPF). Both of these products are in this kit that I’m currently working through. I plan to post about it once I use a few more products!

 

For nighttime, I basically do my skincare routine in the shower after my workout. I cleanse with this face wash, which I’ve been loving because it’s somehow creamy and foamy at the same time. I use my clarisonic 2-3 times per week to exfoliate and my skin feels so much smoother afterward. Once I get out I make sure to remove any leftover eye makeup with this remover, which is gentle on the eyes and doesn’t burn like others I’ve tried. I follow up with the same toner and moisturizer.

Sometimes I keep makeup wipes in my gym bag to freshen up my face after a sweaty workout. I’ve repurchased these wipes again and again, but my favorite kind to use after the gym are ones with a fresh cucumber smell.

 

And that’s my full skincare routine! Have you tried any of these?

  • Strutting in this @joulesclothing dress (c/o) with one of my new #bloggerbesties @pardonmuahinsta in our matching flower crowns at #tbscon | As soon as we both introduced ourselves as Amanda we had an instant connection and felt like we had already met before! Connecting with likeminded girls is at the top of my priorities list throughout 2018. I’ve been such a homebody and stuck in my own comfort zone and it’s time to change it up!

I created a girls only private Facebook group to connect this amazing community of women here. Yes, Y O U reading this! I want you to join and hope it can become your go to place to seek advice, share your success, and feel like you’re talking to your best friends. As I slowly start to put my true self out there on social media, I’ve realized that I’m not alone in this world. We all have insecurities, weird habits, and moments to celebrate 💕 I added the new group to the link in my bio for a short period of time, but I want to keep it relatively on the DL to connect with my real squad out there 🍓.
