I am looking for your beauty tips!
I have relatively normal skin but looks a little dull/uneven . I want a skin care regime to make me look my best by wedding day that won’t break the bank and won’t take me ten steps morning and night.
What are your go to products?

@Jessicachantal: I consider myself to have pretty normal skin too. During the summer it might be a little more oily and during the winter a little dry. I usually only get a couple pimples around my time of the month and that’s really it.
I really don’t have a specific regime but I can certainly share what my go to products are 🙂
You mention your skin being a little dull/uneven, exfoliation works wonders for this! I always liked using St. Ives Apricot Scrub a couple times a week. I also recommend using lotion. I usually put a small amount of Pond’s Dry Skin Cream on my face before I go to bed.
I’m not sure how often you have breakouts but Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Acne Wash is great to use, I just use it when I’m in the shower. For spot treatment I like Clean and Clear’s Persa-gel 10. Just dab it on that trouble spot and it will clear up quick!

@Jessicachantal: The only product I use from the drugstore is Olay regenerist cleanser, which Im pretty content with. I tried the regenerist moisturizer but was not impressed. Other than that I use a serum, moisturizer, and eye cream that I ususally get from sephora or macys. Combined all 3 are over $100.

I use the Mary Kay Timewise system – I was skeptical at first, but after 3 months, my skin has never looked better.

My skincare for the last several months has been pretty nice, affordable, and everything is natural. Avalon Organics Vitamin C facial cleanser ($8) and Avalon Organics Vitamin C anti-aging serum ($15), Beauty Without Cruelty face lotion w/ SPF 15 ($8), and Alba Botanica green tea eye gel ($15).
If anything you should try out the Vitamin C facial cleanser and the Vitamin C serum. Vitamin C really helps bring life to your skin! Also perhaps consider taking Omega 3 Fish Oil supplements. Good luck! 🙂

@Jessicachantal: honey! wet face with water first (else sticky as hell lol) massage a good dollop into skin and rinse! add a half teaspoon of sugar once or twice a week for exfoliation and your skin will look fab within days

@stronger-now1: never heard of this!!! What kind of honey exactly?!
i just sampled some Arbonne products and have to say I was not impressed. Just felt greasy and didn’t notice any dramatic results. For the price they charge I am not willing to settle for mediocre results!
forgot to mention my biggest issue by the Way – dark circles under my eyes!! I have always had this issue- no matter how much sleep I get or how much water I drink- those darn bags will not go away!

I exfoliate with a lactic acid toner (just LA and water, I use pH strips to get the dilution right) 3-4x/week. My daytime moisturizer is the Trader Joe’s “Nourish” moisturizer, and nighttime is Cerave in the tub and a little shea butter. The only thing I ever “spluge” on is sunscreen, since I’ve had trouble finding a cheap sunscreen that goes well under makeup.

@Jessicachantal: following because I’m looking for the same thinghave have normal to oily skin, break out more than I’d like but getting better. I wotree this tea tree cleanser at trader joes and I swear its the best, actually gets my skin clean without drying it out. Do not get it in your eye!
i have horrible dark circles as well, doesn’t matter what I do they have always been there. Have no treatment advice but for covering it I found Bobbi browns corrector and it actually hides them without creasing in my fine lines around the eyes. It’s pricey for me but I bought mine in feb-early march…? And the middle of the pot is just now empty and still have plenty around the sides so a little goes a long way!

@Jessicachantal: If you wear make-up, I wouldn’t use honey alone to remove it, as it won’t (I tried a few times, well I was lazy!) and woke up with panda eyes and spots! If you wear make-up, mix honey with a teaspoon of bicarb, and massage over your face with a face cloth. And you can use pretty much any oil for your eyes. I use sweet almond oil, but used olive oil when I ran out of almond oil. And once I went away for the week end and forgot my moisturizer, and I used almond oil all over my face instead, and my skin was so soft and actually flawless the next morning. So now my routine is:
– Honey and bicarb on a damp facecloth in the evenings when I wear make-up – just honey if I don’t
– I rinse it off then wet a cotton pad, spray a little apple cider vinegar on it, and apply to face (acts like a toner)
– Moisturize with sweet almond oil
– I apply honey to my face (dry skin) in the shower in the morning, and leave it one while I shower
– Repeat above steps
This routine has saved my sensitive skin, and saved me a lot of money.

I use Burt’s Bees sensitive skin product line and their anti aging line. Love the natural products they offer. It works best on my skin.
