current simple skincare routine (2017)

Hello everyone! This post is all about my current skincare routine  for clear and glowing skin. I use these products daily and nightly, and they work amazingly. So, if you'd like to know what I use on my skin, keep on reading. 

1.  Remove makeup (NIGHT)

The first thing I do before I start with any products is remove my makeup. I typically use organic, unrefined coconut oil to do this. All I do is take a small amount of it in my hand, and start rubbing it all over my face. I love using coconut oil to remove my makeup because it breaks down everything, even waterproof makeup and liquid lipstick. After I've melted all of the makeup on my face, I take a hot, damp washcloth and wipe everything away. I repeat this process twice to ensure that all of makeup is removed. 

2.  Cleanse (MORNING AND NIGHT)

After I remove my makeup, I cleanse my face. Recently I've been using the Purity cleanser by philosophy along with a facial buffing pad (you can find these in a 12 pack at Target for 1.99, and they're reusable). The thing I love the most about the buffing pad is that it cleanses and exfoliates my skin, and is gentle enough for me to use everyday. My cleansing routine is fairly simple. I wet the buffing pad with warm water, apply cleanser to it, and then start rubbing it in circular motions all over my face. I do this for one to two minutes, and then rinse my face and then the pad with cold water. 

3. Tone (MORNING AND NIGHT)

Following cleansing, I tone my face with Apple cider vinegar diluted with water. I squirt some onto a cotton pad and then rub it all over my face and neck. This is going to tone your face and reset the pH balance of your skin.

4.  Spot treatment (NIGHT)

After toning, I use Veltin cream to treat any blemishes. I basically just apply the cream anywhere there are pimples (forehead, chin, and nose).  It's pretty strong so I only apply a very small amount to each area.


5.  Moisturizer (MORNING AMD NIGHT)

Lastly, I apply moisturizer. In the morning, I use the Neutrogena oil-free moisture with sunscreen (SPF 35), and at night I use the Neutrogena oil-free moisture for sensitive skin. Moisturizer is essential to getting and maintaining clear skin.
