I want an affordable skincare routine for day/night that is effective for very dry skin. My mom just bought me a clarisonic and I'm so excited to use it; it's inspired me to start up a daily routine. Now I only use a cleanser to remove makeup and rose oil before I go to bed. I also use a facial spray whenever I remember to. I have dry, non-sensitive skin and my pores become clogged on my nose. I'm not prone to breakouts but I have scarring and want an even and radiant complexion Can you help me?

Welcome to the wonderful world of what is having an elaborate skin care routine…

Keep on using the rose oil, great product! That could act as your serum or moisturizer or as a final step after all your products. Oil can penetrate through moisturizer but moisturizer cannot penetrate through oil. 

More affordable, quality brands to keep an eye out for

  • Boots Botanics/No 7 (sold at target)
  • Pixi (sold at target)
  • Mario Badescu (sold at Ulta and Norstrom)
  • Simple Skincare
  • SkinFood
  • Nip + Fab
  • CeraVe (dermatologist brand, great moisturizers and sensitive skin products)

Products that will help with scarring and a radiant, clear complexion.

YES SKIN CARE, I CAN FINALLY BE OF USE,, night routine: I use clean and clear continuous acne control wash (if u have very sensitive skin, I would not recommend tho), you can get it at target, its p cheap. Then I use aveeno positively radiant skin brightening daily scrub, it helps if you have rough patches on your face, also can be bought at target. Also use purpose gentle cleansing wash (also at target). Then I use kiehls ultra facial cleanser, which is super effective! (Part 1)

(part 2) its a bit expensive, but worth it, you get it on the kiehls website, then spray my face with distilled water (aka bottled water). For moisturizing I use kiehls ultra facial toner, then kiehls ultra facial cream, and then Tony moly green tea chokchok watery cream moisturizer (on tonymoly website for abt $27)and if u have dark circles use khiels cream avacado eye treatment. For morning routine I only use the khiels face wash and do the same moisturizing routine minus the eye cream

(Part3) every week I use a face sheet mask, usually Tony moly. They have different kinds based on skin type, but I usually use tea tree BC I get red irritated spots on my skin. I also recommend washing your face with cold water! Its better for your skin. And last thing: khiels rare earth deep pore cleansing masque is good for reducing pore size aye (super sorry for this extra long ask lol)

dude thank you so much for telling me all this?? i definitely want to try out some of khi’s stuff now, anything you recommend starting with first? also does this pretty much work with any skin type? i pretty much have combination skin oh and products for spot treatment? thanks again for telling me all this (i need to reach this level of care now lmao) !!

Everyday Make Up

My everyday makeup consists of over ten products. For some, that may be too many products for everyday but I’ve become accustomed to wearing this much makeup on a daily basis. My everyday makeup consists of a mix of drugstore and high end items. It is best to first explain my skin type before I go on. Everything I use is tailored to my skin type so that my makeup looks a certain way throughout the entire day. I have combo oily/normal skin. I’m oily in my t-zone and normal everywhere else. I don’t have any issues with dryness.

MOISTURIZER


I begin with Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. I use different moisturizers for different seasons because skin reacts with the change in weather. In the winter, my skin is much drier than it is in the summer so I use a more intense moisturizer during the winter. I use the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 in the winter and it keeps my skin from feeling tight and painful. In the summer, a moisturizer like this however, is too heavy for my combo skin. The Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion contains no SPF so I mix Shiseido’s Urban Environment Oil-Free SPF 42 with it. The Shiseido sunscreen is very sticky on its own so mixing my moisturizer with my sunscreen helps it to spread more easily. If you use it on its own, you’ll realize that it’s hard to spread all over your face and leaves a sticky residue on your hands.

PRIMER

I have tried a lot of my primers, but I always come back to my Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimizer. Once again, because I have oily skin, I tend to reach for products that do not clog my pores and helps keep oil at bay. This primer has mattifying properties and it fills in your pores. Tea tree oil is known for its disinfecting and soothing properties, a great alternative for those with acne prone skin. Tea Tree oil reduces the redness of pimples and helps to minimize them. The Body Shop has a great range of tea tree oil products. Their Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion is one of my favorite moisturizers but I haven’t had the time to repurchase it yet, so I’m sticking with my Cetaphil for now. 

FOUNDATION


My current everyday foundation is the L’oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Mattefoundation in the shade 102. This is my absolute favorite drugstore foundation. It is my Holy Grail foundation. The texture is light and smooth. It says it lasts up to 24 hours. I’ve never worn it for 24 hours, but the foundation does last at least 10 hours without breaking down on me. This foundation is especially suited for those with oily skin. It keeps you matte, without looking flat. The finish is a demi-matte, so there is still dimension left to your face. This foundation has worked better for me than many high-end foundations. Keep in mind, I’m a Sephora VIB Rouge so I have tried a lot of high-end foundations.

The collection comes in 12 shades, which is not as great a selection as CoverGirl foundations, but it isn’t the worst. I used to mix shade 101 and 102 because 102 was still a bit darker than my skin tone, but I realized that mixing the foundations compromised the finish and longevity of the foundation. In order to make this foundation work for me, I add two drops of my CoverFX Custom Cover Drops in G30 and mix it together with my finger. Then I dot the foundation on my forehead, cheeks, nose and chin and blend it out with my Beauty Blender.

If you’ve never heard of these drops, they are absolutely amazing. The Custom Cover Drops itself is not a foundation. It is a pigment that you can mix with absolutely anything to create a tinted moisturizer, a full coverage foundation or a colored primer. Basically, if there is skin care that you like, you can add these color drops to your skin care. It eliminates having to wear an extra layer or two of foundation on your face. All you need is two to three drops, and you’ll get medium coverage. If you want fuller coverage, use more drops. This is a God Send because I have so many foundations that I love but the color is never quite right. These drops have stopped me from throwing my foundations out.

CONCEALER


For concealer, I use Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer in 10 Light Sand. It is my favorite concealer from the drug store. The consistency is very light and never settles into my fine lines. If you’re wondering why I would worry about fine lines at the age of 21, it is because I have a wrinkle under my right eye from excessive rubbing over the years. I grew up as a swimmer and chlorine would irritate my eyes so I spent a lot of time rubbing my eyes. Now, I’m paying for it at 21.

POWDER


For powder, I switch between a couple of powders, some drugstore and some high end, but lately, I’ve been using my new Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder and it is amazing. It reminds me of the Make Up For Ever HD Powder. The MUFE powder is a lot finer than the Laura Mercier powder but it leaves a white film on your skin whereas the Laura Mericer Powder is more of a very light beige tone. A little goes a long way with this powder, which is great because high-end products are expensive. Makeup is an expensive hobby, to be honest. I use a flat kabuki brush and stipple the powder all over my face after my foundation has set.

BLUSH, BRONZER, & HIGHLIGHT


For blush, I am using my Benefit Cosmestics Sugarbomb Box O’ Powder.I’ve been using this for over a year. This is more of a cheek highlight than a blush. It adds the lightest pink sheen to my cheeks and it is beautiful when the light hits it. It never looks heavy, but it does look a bit powdery sometimes. (However, all powdery cake face makeup can be fixed with MAC Fix+).

For bronzer, I use Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil. This bronzer comes in three shades - Milk Chocolate, Chocolate and Dark Chocolate. Since I’m so pale, I use the lightest shade to bronze and contour. I pop this in the hollows of my cheek, follow upwards around the edges of my face on either side of my eyes, on my jawline and on my hairline. I’ve tried a lot of bronzers and the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil line is one of my favorites because it isn’t orange like a lot of bronzers. Because of my skin tone, orange bronzers are very obvious so I stay away from them.

For highlight, I’m using the new Becca x Jaclyn Hill Highlighter in Champagne Pop. This just came out in stores a few weeks ago and I love it. It’s basically MAC’s Soft and Gentle but better. Soft and Gentle is a beautiful highlight but it adds too much color to my cheekbones, making my face look much darker than I actually am. It’s not to say the Soft and Gentle isn’t a great product, but it isn’t for everyone. If you’re as pale as I am, then the Soft and Gentle may not work for you. The Becca highlighter however is much lighter but still has that beautiful sheen to it. It is easily one of my favorite highlighters.

EYESHADOW, EYELINER & MASCARA


The products I use for my eyes change everyday but the colors do not. I typically stick with a very neutral eye for school and work. Lately, I’ve been using my Too Faced Chocolate Bar for my eye looks. I take the color Marizpan and pop it all over my eyelid and add depth to my eyes by blending Milk Chocolate in my crease. I deepen my eyes by adding Triple Fudge in the outer corners of eyes.

For eyeliner, I use the Dollywink Liquid Liner in black. The Dollywink liner has a brush tip so it makes it easier for me to create my wing. It is one of my favorite eyeliners. It’s dark and easy to use. It took a bit of getting used to when I first started but once I got the hang of it, I fell in love with it. I have repurchased this product at least five times.

For mascara, I use Maybelline’s Falsies Mascara in black. I opt for the waterproof formulation because my eyelashes are often weighed down by any mascara that isn’t waterproof. Waterproof formulas are much drier, helping lashes to stay up better. I never buy high end mascaras because I don’t think it’s necessary. Drugstore mascaras are amazing, so there’s no need to spend triple the money on a mascara when you can buy one that does the same thing at the drugstore.

EYEBROWS
For my eyebrows, I use my Holy Grail Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Granite. Granite is more of a grey color. I have black hair so I use grey instead of brown. Makeup artists suggest using brown for your brows, even if you have black hair but I find that grey looks more natural on me than brown. I line the edges of my eyebrows with the brow wiz, then I brush the products upwards to fill my eyebrow with an eyebrow brush. I naturally have a good amount of hair for my brows, so I don’t need a lot of product. I’ll have a separate post going in detail about how I do my brows. This eyebrow pencil actually has a spoolie but as you can see, mine broke off. Because I’m horrible. 

Skincare Routine

Step 1: Cleanse!!!! Even if you don’t have any makeup on, cleansing is important because it removes all the dirt and nasty stuff off your face. Cleanse your skin in the morning and at night. Some cleansers I recommend are: Neutrogena healthy skin booster white tea and vitamin E, and Aveeno positivity radiant brighting cleanser( which goes along with the moisturizer).

Step 2: Exfoliate. You should only exfoliate 1-2 times a week. Exfoliating removes dead skin and leaves you with your skin feeling super smooth. I recommend the St. Ives exfoliating scrubs.

Step 3: Tone. Toning helps clean any remaining dirt on your face, and it also helps balance your skins pH levels. I especially recommend toners for those with oily skin. I personally suggest toners with witch hazel, to help remove scars.

Step 4: Moisturize! Moisturizer helps lock everything in and keeps your skin from drying out. Use moisturizer everyday and night but wait for toner to dry before putting it on. I recommend Aveeno positively radiant daily moisturizer.

Step 5: Sunscreen. The key to clear and heathy skin is keeping it protected from the suns harmful UV rays. A good way to do that is applying a sunscreen with at least an SPF 30. I suggest using Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-touch SPF 55 for those with sensitive skin.
