Nighttime Skin Care Routine
CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin Mentioned in my previous post: my holy grail for facial cleansers! Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel I used the Neutrogena hydro boost cleansing gel as a double cleanser courteous to my Cerave hydrating cleanser. The main reason I double cleanse is to use the first cleanser (hydro boost) to take off an remaining makeup, diet, oil and toxins from the air before doing a deep cleanser (Cerave). I recommend double cleansing because it personally has helped my skin become cleaner and clearer! you can double cleanse with the same cleanser or you can use two different ones! The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% toning solution is an exfoliating toner to help with textured skin. Since it’s a exfoliating toner, it’s recommended to be used every other night (preferable). This is my favorite toner I have used so far! Personally, the exfoliating portion of it has helped my skin become smoother and dewy. I use this product about every other night. The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution This chemical peel has been my favorite exfoliating product so far. This easy-at-home 10 mins peeling solution has improved my textured skin and reduced the appearance of my acne scarring! I would recommend if you have highly sensitive skin to do a patch test first, because after all it is a chemical peel. It does tingle and have a bit of burning sensation when first applied, but goes away within a couple minutes of use (that means it’s working ;)) The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% my holy grail serum for my skin care routine. I have been using this since day one of starting my skincare routine and it’s been amazing! I get a hint of red after using my skin care products and thus has helped reduce the redness my face produces after my routine! this serum is also wonderful to help the appearance of your pores look smaller and helps with uneven skin tone! 100/10 recommend this product to be in your skincare routine! Clean&Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment I’m not a fan of Clean and Clear products, but after discovering this spot treatment, they have gained a little respect from me. I struggle with those are to get rid of cystic pimples and have never found a treatment strong enough to make them disappear until I started using this product. This product made my monster of a pimple completely disappear after one use! I continue to use it on others and it has made them disappear within a short amount of time too! CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin mentioned in my previous post!

Morning Skin Care Routine
CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin This hydrating facial cleanser is a MUST in your skincare routine! with 3 ceramides and hyaluronic acid, it’s gentle enough to use on the face. unlike the Cerave foaming facial cleanser, the hydrating cleanser doesn’t strip your skin of the essential oils it needs, but hydrates. the consistency of this cleanser feels water based and goes onto the face feeling very hydrating. I usually leave the cleanser on my face for about 1 min and then rinse with lukewarm water. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Smoothing Gel Exfoliator 150ml This hydro boost exfoliator has given my skin new perceptions. This exfoliator has helped my acne scars and textured skin to become very minimal. The consistency of this exfoliator is gel like with micro beads to help the exfoliating process. this product is gentle enough to wear it doesn’t leave micro tears in your skin, but I can still feel the beads exfoliating! I usually place a pea size ( a little goes a long way) in my hand and rub it together to create more product to place on my face. I rub the product into my face for about 30 seconds and let it set for the other 30 seconds, then rinse with luke warm water. I use the exfoliator about 2-3 times a week. DERMA•E - Vitamin C Concentrated Serum I have just recently started using the Derma-E vitamin C concentrated serum, but by the looks of it, I think it has really brightened up my skin. I use about 2 pumps of the product every morning and apply evenly to my face ( it smells like fruit loops!). Don’t forget to apply sunscreen before going out! COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid I have struggled with black heads, especially on my nose, my entire life. I tried pretty much ANYTHING (even pore strips; yuk!) to try and remove my blackheads. I came across this product on my favorite estheticians page and decided to try it out. I was amazed after just a couple days of using that my nose looked as clear as the rest of my skin! it’s recommended to use 1-2 a week, but I use it every day. I apply with a cotton round pad to the areas affected (usually just my nose) and let it sit and continue my skin care routine after it dries! CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Not much has to be said about this moisturizing lotion because it simply is the best! my heart will always go with Cerave products and this is the best lotion I have found for my face! I apply it evenly on my face and neck once in the morning and once at night.
