My Skincare Routine

My skincare routine is something that I've stuck to religiously every day for as long as I can remember. Although it has changed over the years, I have never gone a morning or night without using a series of products. I have tried numerous different brands and countless combinations of creams, cleansers, serums, etc. for months at a time to try and figure out what works. My current skincare routine is one I have been using for exactly a year now and I must say it is the first one that actually works! The most important part of a skincare routine is actually using it! If you want results there are no cheat days allowed. So don't sleep in your makeup and don't forget to use your products. Don't forget!!!! I am now in my mid-twenties with normal, sometimes oily skin. I struggled to fight acne through my teenage years and early twenties and would always dread catching my oily reflection by mid-afternoon. I couldn't be happier to report that my skin is currently well balanced between oily and dry and I haven't had a breakout in months! And I owe it 100% to the steps I have taken every morning and every night. So if you are looking for the best skincare routine and want to know how to clear up your skin here's the best skincare regimen.
  1. 1.Mermaid Wash 2. Sun Shower Toner 3. Super Berry Eye Serum 4. Serious C + Quench Me 5. Balancing Act - Oil Free Moisturizer 6. Miracle Worker Primer 7. Makeup!
  2. 1. Agua Fresca - Cleansing Water 2. Sun Shower Toner 3. Super Berry Eye Serum 4. Serious C + Quench Me 5. Resurface Me or Retin-All My Lines Away
So here it is laid out: Morning - I use my Mermaid Wash (but I have to admit, sometimes I skip this step because I'm lazy or in a hurry). I use my Sun Shower Toner (I NEVER skip this step!). I use my Super Berry Eye Serum, Serious C, Quench Me, Balancing Act, Miracle Worker then I put on my makeup. Night - I use Agua Fresca to take off my makeup and when I'm feeling especially dry in the winter I use Coconut Cleanser. Then I go through the same cleanse, tone, eye serum, face serums, but then I use the Resurface Me for my nighttime moisturizer. If you wake up with a little bit of shine you are going to LOVE what a toner will do for you. This clarifying treatment will remove the dirt, oil, and dead skin cells to leave your skin ready to absorb all your anti-aging skincare products. By the way, you will be shocked at how dirty our skin gets just from our pillows! This product smells of cucumber and lime and will immediately transport you to a tropical getaway. I promise you will not want to skip this step because it is so easy and is the best toner with sea salt and fruit extracts to clarify your skin. Our last blog post talked about Super Berry Eyes so I won't dive too deep into why this is the best eye serum....but.....I can't live without it! I call it 8 hours of beauty sleep in a bottle or my morning coffee as it alleviates puffiness and dark circles. And nighttime use will prevent crows feet and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Serious C and Quench Me are the Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid serums to be use morning and night. These are the number one skincare ingredients recommended by dermatologists. We'll definitely post about why these skincare products are the most important but for now let's just say - try it for a couple weeks and you'll see...they firm, clarifying, restore elasticity, hydrate, restore collagen production, remove sun spots, age spots, discoloration, OMG they do it ALL. Enough said. So like I said, I have always been more oily. Sooo, I've been terrified of moisturizers because I didn't want to make it worse! Then I checked out the ingredients in the Balancing Act and realized it had Green Tea which fights bacteria. It is a lightweight non-greasy formula that is the perfect consistency to deliver moisture without being to heavy. This oil free moisturizer also contains Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and Aloe which are irresistible! My skin has been clear and under control from using this product. I had really bad scarring left from my acne so by using the Resurface Me - Alpha Hydroxy Acid lotion my skin now has a completely even tone. I highly recommend this product for any discoloration or uneven texture and tone. Click link to order a STARTER KIT to try the full skincare routine! --> Skincare Regimen
