All About Skin Care



My daily skin care routine always starts after a nice warm shower when my pores are open and ready to be cleaned! I like to start off by using the Clarifying Cleanser by Murad. I suffer from a little bit of acne still so this helps prevent and treat it by having a time-released acne medication that stays active for hours after rinsing.


I then like to pat my face with a clean face towel until it is nice dry. If my skin is still feeling a bit congested, I then will do a mask treatment for ten to fifteen minutes. One of my favorite masks to use is the Clear Improvement active charcoal mask by Origins. As we all know, active charcoal acts like a magnet to help draw out any pore clogging impurities. It also contains White China Clay to help absorb any environmental toxins. I highly recommend this product as it has made a huge impact on my skin.  


Once in awhile I will suffer from a lot of acne around my chin area so to help with that throughout the day, I love to apply my Murad Acne Spot Fast Fix



Moving onto oils. I have two that I am absolutely obsessed with! The first is a Lavender face and body oil by Measurable Difference. I scored this oil at T.J. Maxx for only seven dollars and I use it every single day right before bed to help calm and relax me. I like this oil to be applied to my back, neck, shoulders and chest.

Another oil I can't get enough of is my Virgin Cold Pressed Rose Hip Oil by Organic Pharmacy. Now this little baby is more on the pricer side. A one ounce bottle costs 60 dollars! I know, thats expensive but I can't even begin to tell you how much I love it. I use this daily before applying my moisturizer. I have a pretty oily skin type so I never thought oils on my face would work out for me, but this one once applied, sinks into my skin within minutes and doesn't leave behind an oily residue or greasy feeling. Instead it leaves my skin feeling very moisturized and balanced. This oil is great if you're looking for something that also contains great anti aging benefits!


Next is my favorite moisturizer and under eye cream! Right after applying 3-4 drops of rose hip oil to my face, I like to go in with my Maracuja C-brighter eye treatment cream. I take a little scoop of this and apply right under and all around my eyes to help keep the delicate skin around the eye protected! You don't need much of this product because it spreads out well and again doesn't leave a greasy feeling.

My Favorite moisturizer at the moment is definitely the Drink of H2O by Tarte. I have been using this gel moisturizer for quite some time now as I am on my third jar, and I must say I love it so much. The reason why is because it truly feels like a drink of water for your skin! The gel sinks straight into your skin leaving it supple, hydrated and not at all greasy or heavy feeling! Tarte did an excellent job with their skin care line. I use almost every product they offer and I can't say anything bad about them.


Ladies! Don't forget to take care of the rest of your skin that is your body. My favorite lotion is my beloved Hemp Herbal Body Moisturizer in Vanilla Plum which smells divine. I got mine at my local Ulta store. They have plenty of other scents as well that I need to get my hands on.

    1. I'm so glad you like it! Thank you, that means the world to me! Maybe I can help you out, what is your skin type? I know for me, I'm more on the oily side but I know more people with dry or combo skin than I do oily.

  9. I love facial and body oils too! I either use a body oil from the drugstore or just slap some extra virgin coconut oil on. :)
    What I also really like to do is massage my cleansed face with a mixture of jojoba and almond oil while watching TV then I wipe the excess of with a gentle toner and get on with my routine. It has been a huge help with flakiness (yuk).
