(Closed) What is your skin care routine?

  • poll: What's your view on mineral and organic skin care produc?

    I'm loving it and I can feel the difference!

    I like it but it's too expensive, so I'm not using it anymore

    I don't like it and it's a waste of money

    I've never tried any of it

    I really don’t use any skin care products except for basic face wash. It’s got little exfoliating beads in it. In the summer, I go all out with the SPF. I’m pretty strict about that. I suppose I probably ought to be thinking about wrinkle prevention, but honestly, I just can’t be bothered and those products are so expensive.

    Most skin care things I don’t even know what they are for and even if I did, I probably couldn’t be arsed to use them. Fortunately, I’ve always had pretty good skin (never been prone to acne or anything like that).

    How do the green tea bags work? I’ve had awful dark circles lately, thanks to about two months straight of severe insomnia. Normally, my skin care routine involves a good ten hours of beauty rest every night, but life is sort of getting in the way of that at the moment. I look like I’ve been punched in my eyeballs.

    • Oh ill play!

    My routine for AM

    • splash face with cool water.
    • put on my cerave cream or organic troubled skin cream from Etsy
    • use my BB cream

    Night Routine

    • Wash face with Aveda or Cerave sensitive skin with hand brush(depending on the amount of makeup I have on)
    • apply treninion cream 1 or 2 times a week, cerave cream over top.

    Thats it!!! my routine used to have so much going on before, too complicated but now it is simple and my skin loves me for it.

    for a natural toner that’s cheap look into witch hazel. I have been using that.. and only that and moisturizer plus a exfoliant once a week and I’ve been break out free. I was actually shocked how well it’s worked.

    Clinique mild foaming face wash, Clinique toner and Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel and All About Eyes eye cream (pre makeup) 

    At night, makeup wipe, face wash, toner and Johnson’s 24 Hour Moisture Cream and eye cream. I sometimes alternate my night moisturiser, I have like 10 to use, I just think it makes a difference to keep swapping creams.

    I also just recently started using a serum from Loreal in a brown bottle (can’t remember the name) that you use before moisturiser. It makes SUCH A DIFFERENCE to your skin!! I absolutely love it.

    Also, a 500mg vitamin C pill 3 times a week = bright skin.

    I have dry, sensitive, reactive, acne prone skin. Yay.

    – wash face with 1.5% benzoyl peroxide (fragrance free, 100% comedogenic/irritant free) face wash, wipe off with wet wash cloth (for exfoliation)
    – oil/fragrance/irritant/comedogen free moisturizer on damp skin 
    – Target brand eye cream
    – Everyday Minerals jojoba foundation (LOVE), followed by the rest of my makeup

    – remove eye makeup with Neutrogena eye makeup remover
    – wash face with Bridal Party face wash (2x week switch out with Bridal Party exfoliant wash)
    – same moisturizer 
    – Target brand eye cream 

    I stopped using toners and now look very closely at everything that gets put on my face against a list of comedogenic and irritating ingredients. My skin is finally clearing up.

    I’m definitely going to try some green tea bags, though.

    Right now because I’m getting ready for the wedding I have been…

    -wash face with reversalist face wash by avon

    -apply reversalist night cream

    -avoid makeup

    I’ve also been tanning occasionally (bad, I know) and I’m about to start using Jergen’s gradual tan lotion. I’ve been using Dove firming body lotion below the neck.

    Usually, when I’m not getting ready for a big event, I just…

    -wash face with olay bar soap

    -apply olay active hydrating beauty fluid lotion
