I've had a few questions about my skincare and daily makeup lately so I thought I would show you what I've been loving this winter to keep my skin looking hydrated and healthy. For me, I struggle with my skin more in the winter. My t-zone will stay oily but my cheeks become extremely dry. I think I have finally figured out what I need to do to keep it looking respectable!
At night, I start off by removing my makeup with a cleansing wipe (this isn't totally necessary but I feel like it helps get off that top layer of makeup). If I use a wipe, it's usually these by Neutrogena.
Moving on to the more important steps! I will always use my Clarisonic Mia 2 at night, every single night religiously. I truly believe that this brush is a miracle worker. When I started using it a year ago it changed by skin drastically for the better. It's 100% worth the investment. I use a gentle, simple cleanser with it at night. My absolute favorite is the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser which I discovered when I first bought my Clarisonic as it came with it in the package. It's a simple, clean wash that really gets the job done with the Clarisonic.
After I cleanse, with the Clarisonic and Fresh Cleanser, I put on the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream. It's very hydrating, never breaks me out and I feel like it has helped with some fine lines on my forehead. Then, I put on the Fresh Lotus Eye Gel for a little extra under eye moisture to help with any aging. Last, I use my EOS Lip Balm in Coconut Milk which smells delish and is a great moisturizer.
Every morning I wash my face with Clean and Clear Morning Burst. It gives your face a fresh, awake feeling which is great in the AM! It has small, little bursting beads that give a very gentle exfoliation. Most mornings, I won't use my Clarisonic. I find it's too much morning and night on most days but if my skin is looking really drab or dry I will use it in the morning too!
On to morning moisture! I put a VERY small amount of Aveeno Eczema Therapy on my cheeks and any dry patches. I find that this really helps my dry cheeks and looks so smooth under makeup when it's dried. Last, I put on my EOS!
At this point, I wait for everything to sink in and then do my makeup! I will have an everyday makeup routine video up soon so you all can see what I do! I hope you enjoyed and you are safe and warm if you're in the middle of this blizzard like I am!
