Ya’ll! It is July already. How is this possible? I swear the year just started and now we’re already halfway through. Ugh.
Anyway, this week I wanted to share with you my updated skincare routine. My skin has been going crazy lately and I cannot figure out what is going on. Ever since having our youngest baby my skin has just been out of wack and I am really trying to get it back balanced.
I’m sure that all the stress with moving and the climate change hasn’t helped either.
I just have all these hormonal acne breakouts all over my cheeks and chin and I realized that some of the cleansers and moisturizers that I used (and worked) before are actually causing some of my breakouts.
So we’re basically starting from scratch to try and get my skin normalized again. This is the routine that I’ve been using for about a month now and it seems to be helping. The breakouts are getting fewer and further in between so I’m hopeful.
Let’s get to it… all the products in my current skincare routine.
Tula Probiotic Cleanser
I actually got this cleanser in one of my FabFitFun boxes and it’s been sitting in my cabinet for a while. I finally pulled it out when my old cleanser was gone. So far, I like it… it’s creamy and feels like it’s getting my skin clean.
Thayers Witch Hazel
I remember using toner back when I was in high school and haven’t used it since then. I heard that witch hazel works well to help with inflammation caused by acne so I’m giving it a try to help with my redness.
Nassif MD Detox Pads
These were another FabFitFun box product. I only use these in the morning and on alternating days with the witch hazel.
Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Pads
I bought these on a whim from Amazon. I wanted to add a retinol to my routine to possibly help control and stop the breakouts from happening. So far it seems to be working. I only use these at night.
Exuviance Day Cream
Both this day cream and the night cream below were recommended by a skin consultant at Ulta. I like the light and creamy feel of this and it doesn’t feel too greasy when I apply it.
Exuviance Night Cream
This one is a little heavier but still soft and creamy without being greasy. Obviously I only use one at night and then one in the morning.
Nerium Age Defying Eye Serum
I’ve been using this eye cream for a few months now and I absolutely love it. I feel like my under eye bags are almost completely gone and my eyes definitely look brighter and feel tighter.
There you have it. My current skincare routine. I’ll be sure to update ya’ll in a few months to see if it’s working or (hopefully not) making things worse.
