I’ve mentioned several times that I keep my skincare pretty simple. I’ll be honest and say that I tend to slack sometimes, so the simpler, the better. You’ll see that I don’t use any serums, or extra products — I try to keep it at the bare minimum, while still using products that are beneficial for my skin type and problems.
Oily, Acne-Prone Skin Essentials
I have several cleansers I use for different reasons. Each morning I wash my face with Murad’s Acne Clarifying Cleanser and I follow by using Pixi’s Glow Tonic. For moisturizers, I use the St. Ive’s Renewing Collagen Moisturizer and for my under eye area, my morning favorite is the Origins GinZing Eye Cream — it’s so refreshing and cooling, perfect way to wake up.
My evening’s vary from day to day, but I try my best to keep my routine consistent. To remove my makeup I use my absolute favorite cleanser, Philophy’s Purity Made Simple Cleanser, it’s amazing and wonderful for all skin types. I also like to go in with my Mia Clarisonic Cleanser 2-3 times a week with Neutrogena’s Ultra Gentle Cleanser, at least once during those 2-3 times a week, I like to use the Clarisonic Pore & Blemish Cleaner, to help keep acne at bay. My favorite brush head to use is the Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head, I have not had any pesky white heads since using this brush attachment. I then go in with the Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads, these have glycolic acid and salicylic acid. I finish off by using the same moisturizer, I have yet to find something that I like for night time, and use the CeraVe Eye Repair Cream.
For SPF and oil control, I love, love, love Murad’s Oil-Control Mattifier, I use this under my makeup — as a primer, essentially. For a once a week scrub, I love to use the Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Scrub, it’s not too harsh and smells amazing! For something a bit stronger, I like to use Dr. Brandt’s Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant, I use this about once, maybe twice a month. I have a few favorite masks that I reach for often, Biore’s Self-Heating One Minute Mask, Pixi’s 15 Minute Facial Glow Mud Mask, and Derma E’s Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask. And for those pesky blackheads, my go-to are Biore’s Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips. I do have several other hydrating masks and sheet masks that I use occasionally, but these products mentioned are all products that I have repurchased over and over.

So, that’s what my skincare routine looks like…like I said, it’s pretty simple and straight to the point.
