do NOT use an exfoliator that leaves your skin feeling tight and squeaky clean
toner is underrated. it’s very important. i especially like ones that spray on, less cotton pads to through away.
find a great moisturizer. quality and simplicity over pretty smells
only do your full skin routine at night, if you do the whole thing twice a day that can actually irritate your skin. if you want to clean the oil off in the morning use a very gentle foam cleanser.
MOISTURISE! (no matter what skin type you have)
serums can be a great addition to your skin care routine that helps add radiance, and evens skin tone out. also helps with acne.
SPF!!! sunscreen. it’s a must. try and find skin care or makeup with at least spf 15 in it.
face masks leave your skin feeling amazing. i would only use it twice a week. lush has just brought out a coffee one that lasts longer then their normal products and you don’t have to keep in in the fridge. i used it last night and i’m very impressed.
once you find a routine stick ! to ! it ! don’t just use an exfoliator twice a week and do nothing else like i used to. if a product isn’t working for you don’t feel guilty for tossing it. don’t just try and finish it because you spent money on it.
also don’t spend heaps of money on products you’re not sure on. you can find great stuff inexpensively that lasts a while. (my fav brand is sukin from australia and lush)
