MY FALL SKINCARE ROUTINE
Okay, so in the past, I’ve put off truly caring about being consistent with skincare. But, as I’m getting closer to my 30’s, I’m realizing I’ve really got to get on it. With that being said, over the past few months, I’ve really tried to be dedicated to sticking to a routine.
I’ve struggled with my skin
for a really long time.
I was never the girl in high school or college that had flawless skin, and to be completely transparent, I still don’t. There’s always a certain time of the month I can expect to see some breakouts, but I’ve started to own that’s just part of being a human. With age comes wisdom, and I know what society deems as flaws have no measure of my worth (or yours!).
I want to share what products I use, and how often I use them. I don’t promise perfect skin if you use them, but if you aren’t using anything right now, the sooner you start the better you’ll be in fighting the aging process. I might be okay with my flaws, and one day I’ll be okay with wrinkles too. But, not just yet. :)
NEUtrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser
I absolutely love this daily cleaner. I keep it in my shower and I use it nightly. I’ll sometimes use it in the morning too if I wake up and feel a little oily. It’s inexpensive, and I’ve used Neutrogena since I was a kid. The Naturals line is formulated without a bunch of “bad stuff” like parabens, which I happen to be allergic to.

Yes To Cucumbers Micellar Cleansing Water
After I get out of the shower, or I’ve washed my face. I use a cotton ball with this to really help remove any leftover makeup or grime. I really love this because it’s soothing, and I’m always surprised by how much dirt comes off even after I’ve washed my face.

Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin nourishing Moisturizer
In the morning, before I apply my makeup, I apply this lotion. It’s really hydrating and it’s full of good-for-your-skin vitamins. I mean it says "multi-vitamin" - sounds healthy! And, again no parabens, a win for this sensitive skin girl.

It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+
Ok, so you’re thinking wait I thought this was about skincare...not makeup!? Well, I’m obsessed with this CC cream because it’s packed full of SUNSCREEN. Growing up under the sunny skies of Florida and spending many days at the beach, I can’t tell you enough how important it is to wear sunscreen EVERY DAY - not just at the beach, lake, pool, etc. Sun damage is real, and I’ve TOO many friends that have required things cut off their bodies to be tested for skin cancer. That’s no joke. Not only do I love the sun protection, this foundation has amazing coverage. I have both formulas - original and Illuminating. When I repurchase, I plan to go back to the original formula because I think it has better coverage. In case you're wondering, I'm in the shade "Light".

Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum
I got this in my FabFitFun box. Sadly, I’m not sure the company is still selling it - which is a total bummer because it was awesome. If you can find it, scoop it up. It sinks into your skin immediately and it’s super hydrating. I'm not going to link this one, so if you have any suggestions for good serums please share with me in the comments below.
Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream
I’ve always followed the rule of serum before moisturizer. I’m not really sure where I heard that, maybe YouTube? But, I always follow my serum with this cream. I apply it all over my face, neck and eye area. This stuff is AMAZING. It is a bit on the pricier end compared to some of the other products I shared, but you don’t skimp when it comes to night and eye cream.
Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate
I got this product in my Summer FabFitFun box, so I haven't used it for long. But, I needed a night time eye product. So, this is what I've used over the past few weeks. The product's website says it's packed full of things like certified organic grape and carrot juices blended with essential fatty acids and Vitamins B5, C and P. Is it wrong I didn't know Vitamin P existed?

Origins refreshing eye Cream to brighten and depuff
I don't use this EVERY morning, so I moved it to the weekly category. However, if I'm feeling groggy or if I didn't get enough sleep. I use this to look a little more human. It's perfect for waking up tired eyes.

Dr. Brandt Micodermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator
This stuff is pricey, but that’s why I love FabFitFun. I also got this in one of my boxes. This stuff is great for getting rid of dead skin and making sure all the serums and creams you’re putting on really can soak into your skin. While it’s expensive, a little goes a long way and it lasts for a while since you don’t use it daily. It's great for perking up dull skin.

Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer Medium/Tan
This is the easiest, strangest product I’ve ever used for tanning. Once you’re finished showering, you apply the lotion. Yes, while your skin is still wet. Then, you towel off and pat dry. Your skin is left soft and you develop a natural-looking tan over a few days! If you're constantly concerned about your self-tanner staying on you and, not your towel, fear not. This product is not going to rub off on your towel or your clothing. The added bonus is that you have soft skin. What doesn't love to keep their summer glow well into Fall?!
