Skincare has always been an integral part of my daily routine. When I was little, I used to sit on my mom’s bathroom counter and watch her go through her extensive nightly ritual of washing, toning, and moisturizing her face. From a young age, I have learned the importance of consistency and maintenance with my skincare.
That being said, finding skincare products that work for me has definitely been a trial and error process. I have spent years testing out an abundance of different products to either, happily find out that they did wonders for my skin, or sadly have broken me out. Thankfully, after such a long period of time trying out different skincare products, I have finally found my tried and true products that I cannot go a day without. Lets get into it!
I was first introduced to Mario Badescu products a few years ago when the rose water spray took over the beauty industry! After loving the spray, I decided to test out more of his products and I’m so glad that I did. I have pretty sensitive skin and the Enzyme Cleansing Gel has become such a staple in my nighttime routine. The cleanser is so gentle on my skin and has a very clean, fresh scent. I first splash my face with warm water. Next, I apply about a dime sized amount of product onto my hand. I use the tips of my fingers to work the product into my skin. After about 30 seconds, I splash my face a few more times with warm water to get the excess cleanser off of my face. I always pat to dry my face with a fluffy white towel. My mom always told me that rubbing your face with a towel causes wrinkles and we don’t need those y’all!
I have used countless micellar waters over the years and none quite measure up to this one! Either they feel sticky or leave a weird residue behind after application. Luckily, I have found Simple products that keep my skin feeling hydrated and super refreshed! Simple micellar water uses clean ingredients that simultaneously cleanse your face and remove any dirt or impurities that linger on your skin…even after a thorough wash. I apply the micellar water to a cotton pad and in a circular motion make my way around my face, ensuring that I reach all areas of my skin. I am always shocked with how much dirt it removes and always think…if I didn’t cleanse my face with this water, all of that extra dirt would just be sitting there! This product will ensure that you skin is squeaky clean before you apply any moisturizers!
My twin sister Cammie started using this product her freshman year of college and told me to try it out because she was seeing amazing results. Ever since the first application of this heaven-sent cream, I haven’t looked back. This ultra rich, chamomile infused cream will leave your skin soft, supple and super hydrated. You only need to use a small amount to see big results in the appearance of your skin. After some time using this product, your skin seriously looks airbrushed!
I have always wanted to use skincare serums and oils, but have been too scared that they would break me out. This past summer, I decided to bite the bullet and just test it out to see if I would see results. I am so glad that I decided to go for it because I truly believe that this product is making the biggest difference in the appearance of my skin. Bio Oil is known for helping to improve the appearance of scars. If you have left-over acne scars on your face that just will not go away or are looking to improve dull looking skin, this is the product for you! I put a pea sized amount of the oil onto my fingers and gently tap the product into my skin. Instantaneously, you will look like a glowing goddess. Overtime, I have seen all of my acne scars disappear and have such a natural glow to my skin. This may be my favorite product in the whole post!
Here you guys have it…the 4 products to perfect skin! In addition to using these products I always make sure to drink plenty of water, exercise and eat clean foods to improve the appearance of my skin. When you are healthy from within, I promise, it will show on the outside. If any of you guys test out these products, please let me know in the comments below!
