My skincare routine for DRY SKIN
So I have dry skin and it is a bit sensitive and I found that these products worked best for me. I apply it in such order 1) Cleanser 2) Toner 3) Serum/Booster 4) Moisturizer 5) Sunscreen (AM only) For the cleanser LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser I really enjoyed it. It did wonders for my dry skin. It has a creamy milky consistency that doesn’t lather ensuring that your skin isn’t overly stripped. I would also recommend this product if you have sensitive skin because it has 8 ingredients! For sensitive skin it is better to use less ingredients to ensure that your skin doesn’t get irritated. I would compare the consistency to CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser. Next I use a toner. FARMACY - Deep Sweep The only reason I actually use it is because of the BHA. I found it to not be irritating and my skin didn’t have a tingling feeling either. Since I do have dry skin I don’t use it all over my face. I only use it on my chin for whiteheads and on my nose for blackheads. Another plus is that this toner is alcohol free! After that I use a serum/booster. VERSED - HYDRATION STATION Booster With HA This booster is really good and I didn’t find it to be sticky as others might say. It has a lightweight consistency and almost feels like there isn’t anything on your face. After I apply this booster my skin feels really soft and hydrated which is a must for dry skin. Hyaluronic acid offers those benefits. The moisturizer I use is the HONEST - The Daily Calm Lightweight Moisturizer When I found out that Honest Beauty came out with this formula I was impressed because they usually use fragrances (essential oils) in their products. I decided to give it a try because it is fragrance free. However, it had a noticeable scent to it that wasn’t pleasant. Yes it is fragrance free but it just has a noticeable “lotion” type smell that you can smell all day. Besides that one problem I have no complaints. (If you have moisturizer suggestions for dry skin please let me know) Finally I use sunscreen. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 PA +++ This right here is one of the only sunscreens with zinc oxide that doesn’t leave a white cast. Sunscreen is an essential part of your skincare routine no matter what your skin tone is. You should definitely be using one especially if you exfoliate. It feels like there is nothing on your face. I definitely recommend this one!!
You may have heard of VERSED Skin. It’s an affordable skincare brand available at Target. The Fix Emergency Eye Mask is a hydrating gel cream mask to nourish and hydrate the eye area. This has a thicker gel cream texture that you just tissue off for removal . I use it under my eyes while using other masks like an exfoliating or detox mask in order to keep the eye area from drying out. You can apply it and sit around the house for a little while before going to bed as well. It has multiple ways you can use it. It reminds me of a cheaper version of the Sisley eye mask. If you want a cheaper dupe here you go. Same texture, different ingredients, same effect ultimately . Cucumber depuffs and soothes while caffeine helps reduce puffiness and swelling. Vitamins E and B5 nourish the eye area while humectants like glycerin hydrate the skin . I’m completely smitten with the uber lightweight texture of the Hydration Station Booster with HA. This product has the cutest little size (it’s 15ml). It has a dropper style dispenser. This has a water light texture so it’s so easy to layer under anything. I was totally impressed with how light the texture is . This hydrating serum has hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid so it has a smaller size and is able to penetrate better. Sodium hyaluronate is the salt of hyaluronic acid so it’s smaller and able to penetrate better as well. I love the combo of these two which gives it such a lightweight texture . This is one hyaluronic acid serum that doesn’t have a thick or sticky texture, it just feels hydrating. It’s fragrance free and fairly simple. If you want to try an affordable hyaluronic acid serum that is lightweight, not heavy or sticky (like other cheap HA serums) then you should really try this one. It’s quite nice . I love that they’re affordable & fragrance free. I’ll have to report back on the Firming Serum I haven’t been able to crack it open yet. I was also toying with trying the overnight facial peel but I wanted to start with a few items and see what I thought.
VERSED-HYDRATION STATION Booster With HA
From red + bumpy to GLOWY + clear
I have combo (gets oily but dry cheeks.. ugh) with hormonal breakouts, and then I started getting red bumps and enlarged pores/blackheads. Stress and quarantine amirite? Got started with CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin for a gentle cleanse, and sometimes when I’m extra oily the SA cleanser, and if dry the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Pure Skin Face Cleanser Then moisturize and brighten with bliss - Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer and let it absorb while you do your thang, followed by the MOST important step in your routine - SPF via the best CeraVe - Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 For Normal To Oily Skin and or the PAULA'S CHOICE - Essential Glow Moisturizer SPF 30 (another good Paula’s is their Ultra Sheer Daily Defense). On days when I’m dry / after sun it’s the cult FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer , and on the days where my pores are congested and on the verge of a breakout I prevent with PAULA'S CHOICE - Niacinamide and BHA Duo , as well as once or twice a week the The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque if necessary for treating / preventing breakouts and enlarged pores. This mask will draw out your blackheads over a day or two and then you will see improvement! When I need to repair and get the glow, its all about the SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask my new fave. Hope these products will make you feel as glossy and fresh as I am!

My Current Extra AF Morning Routine✨
A lot of products, I know. But I’ve found a routine that works for me! I currently alternate days between PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster and The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% but everything else I’ve been using daily. Why do I use two moisturizers? Let me explain. When I first started my skincare journey, I was battling a pretty persistent case of fungal acne on my forehead. It wasn’t until I stopped using an oil cleanser and switched moisturizers that the acne stopped. I’ve found that FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream helps keep my forehead hydrated without causing it to get too oily, which had been part of the problem. It also is free of many of the esters and omega fatty acids that can normally trigger fungal acne breakouts. Why not use it on my whole face then? Well, I’ve got combo skin, and my cheeks tend to dry up pretty quick. I’m obsessed with the texture of DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream and it’s been my favorite ever since I received a sample from Sephora about a year ago. I honestly couldn’t bear the thought of saying goodbye. Currently been testing out the COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser because I ran out of my all time favorite YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser and I’ve got a lot of thoughts. Post coming soon. Hope you’re all having a good Monday and surviving all the bullish*t🌈 If you need a friend, I’m here! Let’s remember to be good to one another (and ourselves) through this!!!
PAULA'S CHOICE-10% Azelaic Acid Booster
In the AM I wash my face with VERSED - WASH IT OUT Gel Cleanser then I rub in 4 drops of VERSED - HYDRATION STATION Booster With HA . It says to use 1-3 drops but I found it works better to use a little more. Moving on to make up, I shake up the Glossier. - Perfecting Skin Tint and apply 4 finger tips worth to my forehead cheeks and chin. Then I mix a little Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color and MAYBELLINE - STROBING LIQUID™ ILLUMINATING HIGHLIGHTER together on my hand and tap cheeks until satisfied. I use my finger to apply MAKE UP FOR EVER - Artist Color Eye Shadow . I put a little SEPHORA COLLECTION - Colorful Shadow & Liner on the inside of my eye and line with KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - KVD VEGAN BEAUTY Tattoo Liner
MAKE UP FOR EVER-Artist Color Eye Shadow
New routine added Versed
I use to break out every time I washed my face but now I’ve been using a gel cleanser and a serum and my skin has never looked better. I mix my FAB moisturizer with the serum at night. In the morning I just wash with gel and apply serum by itself.VERSED - WASH IT OUT Gel Cleanser VERSED - HYDRATION STATION Booster With HA FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer
