Although I have talked about some of my favorite beauty products in the past, I haven’t shared with y’all my everyday beauty routine. I will start with my morning routine today and later on I will do a post on my nightly skincare regimen – ’cause that is a much longer process!
As I have said before, I have combination skin that is highly prone to breakouts, so what works for me may not work for you!
Step 1: La Mer The Cleansing Foam
I wash my face with this every morning and night. However, if I take a shower, then I wash my face with my Kiehl’s exfoliating cleanser. No matter what, I always wash my face twice a day!
Step 2: Kiehl’s Toner
I started using this toner years ago and it is the absolute best toner for anyone with oily, acne prone skin. If I go out of town for a few days and forget to pack this stuff, my skin instantly starts to suffer! I always apply this all over my face and neck, immediately after I wash my face.
Step 3: Kiehl’s Essence
After my toner drys, I gently pat my essence all over my face, neck, and the back of my hands (they need love too). It takes a few minutes to fully absorb into my skin, so while I wait I brush my teeth!
Step 4: Sunday Riley Good Genes
I was turned onto this product about a year ago and it is amazing! It is a lactic acid treatment that helps to brighten, plump, and exfoliate your skin. I apply this all over my face after the essence is fully absorbed.
Step 5: Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue
This is another product that I have used forever and am still obsessed with! It is the most hydrating tinted moisturizer that I’ve ever used and it has SPF 30 which is super important. I use the color Birch 1.5 for my skin, which somehow works with my skin color both in the Summer and in the Winter. I apply it all over my face and neck. However, I make sure to always wash my hands afterwards since it is tinted and I don’t want accidentally rub it on my clothes!
That is it! I have stuck to this routine for a while now and it truly is the best combination of products for my skin. I am always trying out new products but I have yet to discover anything better than these five products. Stay tuned for my night time routine – which I hope to share later this week!
