It has taken me sooo long to finally post this, but here is my skincare routine.
Ok so first, I want to start by saying that this is just my personal skincare routine. This has been specifically tailored to my skin type from my esthetician. I can’t say that this is perfect for everyone and I would recommend that everyone see someone to get one personalized for themselves. But, I wanted to share with you the specific products I use.
For my morning routine, it is pretty simple. (all the links are below for the products.)
I start out with iS Clinical’s Cleansing Complex. It is a really gentle gel cleanser and I only use a tiny bit. I folllow up with their Youth Eye Cream and Corrective Control’s Aroma Matte SPF 30. I admit, I just started using eye cream and SPF in the last year. I noticed I was starting to get fine lines, so I wish I would have started earlier.
SPF is helping prevent future sun damage. But also, if you have any existing acne or breakouts it will prevent them from getting dark. This is what happens when you have dark spots on your face, if you were in the sun with them it will cause scarring.
For my evening routine, it is WAY more complicated. I actually had to follow a piece of paper for a good month until I got the hang of it. But now, I feel lost without using every single product.
Again, I use the same cleansing complex to get all the makeup off. I then follow up with Active Serum. What this does, it kind of tingle on your skin and helps clear up and prevent any breakouts. Because I wear so much makeup on camera every day, I really need this.
Next I use Shani Darden’s Retinol Reform. This product is a miracle in a bottle and a favorite of Rosie Huntington Whitely and Jessica Alba. Shani does my facials, as well as theirs. She is the one who has made this custom skincare routine for me and she is the best ever. If you live in LA, I would make an appointment with her.
Anyway, back to the retinol reform. It helps to reduce wrinkles and get rid of acne scarring. I started using this 1x a week and eventually worked my way up to using it every evening.
I add on eye cream just as I did in the morning and then for evening, I use a different moisturizer. The SPF is good for the day, but I don’t need it when it is dark (obvi). In the evening I use the same brand as the sunscreen but their oil free healing lotion. It is really light weight and lasts me a long time.
In addition to all these great products, I do get monthly facials where Shani can clear out my skin and get rid of any breakouts. I try to not pick at my face which can make scars worse. I let her do any extractions and she is the best.
So there it is, all my products. I hope this helps you out, leave a comment below on what else you want to know! It is over whelming but I really love this routine.
