As I get older, skincare has been a top priority for me. I take my current skincare routine very seriously and today, I am sharing the products that works for me. Skincare has been a top priority for the past few years. I am always eager to learn more about skincare, how I can care for my skin better and what works for me and testing out new and better products. More so than ever, I have been paying more attention to my skin and being consistent with my routine. The best lesson I have learnt over the years regarding skin care is consistency. Whatever you do including taking care of your skin, consistency is key! When it comes to skincare, it is important to find out what products work for you and being diligent in taking care of your skin.
I cave out time every morning and evening to take care of my skin. That 5-10mins self care time is important. One thing for sure is I try not to sleep with makeup on and also allow my skin to breath from makeup. I will be sharing my current skincare routine and how I care for my skin right now. I do rotate on some products; but the majority of the products that I use are constant and consistent.
Cleanser: I alternate between Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser for Normal to Oily skin and Glossier Milky Jelly cleanser. I use the Glossier Milky Jelly cleanser mostly in the morning for a gentle cleanse. The Cetaphil helps with deep cleaning when I have been wearing makeup all day. Hence why I mostly use it in the evening at the end of my day. Occasionally, I use the Glossier Milky Jelly as a makeup remover rather than using makeup removing wipes.
Toner: I currently use La Roche-Posay Effaclar Toner For Oily Skin. I have a normal to oily skin and this works perfect for me. It helps tighten and reduce the look of pores. I have been using it for about a year now. It is great for acne prone skins. I have previously alternated with Dermalogica toner.
Serum: For my morning routine, I use the Caudalie Vinopure Skin Perfecting Serum along with the Glossier super glow and super bounce. The Glossier super glow helps brighten and energize my tired skin; while the super bounce softens my skin. For my nightly routine, I substitue the Caudalie Vinopure for the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum along with La Roche-Posay Redermic-C.
Eye Serum: Dr. Dennis Gross Triple Correction Eye Serum has been my go-to eye serum for years. It helps with puffiness and fine lines. I have added the Glossier bubblewrap eye and lip plumping cream. This Glossier eye cream helps my under eye stay hydrated and smooth. I personally use it more for my under eye cream. It’s very hydrating and it brightens my under eyes.
Here are other products that are part of my current skincare routine: I use are the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery oil for my nightly routine. I have been using it for over 3 years. I have had so many compliments on how naturally glowy my skin looks. It helps prevent any spots from appearing and keeps my skin clear and soft. Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution, is another product that I often use. It help even my skin tone and I can see some fine lines have decreased overtime.
Here’s the body lotion I use: Cerave Moisturizing creme.
