Who knew that by taking a few simple steps your skin could be great. I never really had terrible skin besides in my teenage years where i had the occasional outbreaks and pimples appearing. However, i do see a difference in my skin when i take care of it and when i don’t. I wanted to share my daily skincare routine for the spring/summer season which should be different than your winter skincare. Its less hydrating, more clean and fewer layers.
My daily Spring/Summer skincare products
Recently i became pretty interested in skincare: whether it’s trying out new products or giving my impressions and recommendations. So let’s talk a little more in depth about the products I use on a daily basis.
Just as a note, I have combination skin; oily t-zone and a bit dry cheeks.
Daily Skincare Routine
I start my routine by washing my face using Glossier Milky Jelly. I like this cleanser because it’s super lightweight, The pH-balanced, creamy gel formula is made with a blend of five skin conditioners so your face is left feeling healthy and soft.
2-3 times a week I will exfoliate with Drunk Elephant T.L.C baby facial this is a super intense product. It prickles and you really feel it working on your skin. I saw a difference right away! my skin felt way smoother and cleaner.
After I cleanse and exfoliate, I use GO-TO Face Hero I used to stay far away from face oils, thinking it will make my skin oily, however, face oils are packed with essential fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants that work wonders for your skin! I mostly use this only at night before i go to bed.
My daily moisturizer i recently discovered is the Drunk Elephant Protini i was looking for a really lightweight formula that gets absorbed into my skin immediately. This one ticks of all my requirements. Protini’s proprietary formula delivers revived, younger-looking skin, almost from the first application. If i want to switch it up i use the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Matifying Fluid for Combination Skin.
For the perfect summer face tan, i add these self-tanner drops from Isle of paradise, i use shade medium but they are always sold out on Sephora. You just mix it with your moisturizer before bedtime and you wake up with a gorgeous tan! I also feel like since my skin is tanned I don’t need so much foundation and coverage so it ultimately prevents me from clogging up my skin.
once a week i use a face mask, my favorite is fresh black tea instant perfecting mask a cloud-like whipped texture that leaves skin super-smooth and dewy.
Some other favorite products I use here and there
- facial spray i use for a quick freshen up
- Jade roller to help increase circulation and reduce puffiness.
- Estee Lauder Advanced Night repair serum my first product for anti aging. I believe its never too early to start:)
