I am one sensitive girl. I am allergic to almost all of nature, so it makes it hard for me to find skincare products that don’t irritate my skin. My skincare journey has been a long and rough one, but here’s a collection of products that I swear by.
Step One : Cleanse
I start my routine with a good cleanse. To me, this is the most important part of the entire routine, because it removes all the dirt and unwanted debris from my skin. I mean… just think about all the pollutants and bacteria your face comes in contact with throughout the day.
I wash my face using this tiny device, the FOREO Luna FoFo. I have personally been a fan of Foreo products for years and this device has become apart of my skincare essentials. What I love about the FoFo is that it sends vibrations through your skin as you’re using it, and pulsates every 30 seconds (indicating that it’s time to move to a different section of your face). The Luna also connects to an app on your phone, and it uses the prongs on the back of the device to analyze your skin. I know… cool, right!?
Every other day, I alternate between Dr. Bronner’s Pure – Castile Soap, and the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash. Both of these products help prevent breakouts to those with sensitive and acne prone skin.
Step Two : Exfoliate
Exfoliation is a crucial part of a healthy skin care routine. The best exfoliator I’ve found is the St. Ives Acne Control Scrub. Exfoliating twice a week removes all of the dead skin cells, which can help even out your skin tone. Be careful because too much exfoliating can do more harm than good.
Step Three : Replenish
After stripping your skin of all of the bacteria and toxins, it is important to replenish, so that your skin remains healthy. Using a water-based face serum will allow your skin to quickly absorb the minerals and minimize your pores.
Another tool that I absolutely swear by is the Jade Roller. Using a Jade Roller after applying a serum will increase circulation, sooth skin and reduce inflammation.
Step Four : Moisturize
Last but not least, HYDRATE! I mean, seriously.. who wants dry skin? Hydrated skin is healthy skin. Not only is it important to hydrate your skin from the outside, but the inside as well. I feel like this should be obvious, but drink WATER! Drinking water will rejuvenate your skin cells, as well as regulate your other body systems.
