With the winter temps making my skin dry + my bones chilly, I have been reaching for my favorite skincare products more + more each day. Somedays I have extremely dry skin + need a little hydration + other days my skin is an oil mine and I need something to zap those zits away. Since my skin is always changing things up on me, that means I need to switch up the products I use every so often. Recently I have been adding a mix of products, tools + treatments to my everyday skincare routine + wanted to share my favorites with ya’ll below! All are affordable (nothing over $150) + they all last a long time while truly leaving your skin looking + feeling great!
What’s more fun than playing with new beauty + skincare products? N O T H I N G! Duh 😉 I love getting surprise packages and testing out new creams, cleansers and serums because at 24…my skin is far from perfect and I am always game for new products that will help my combination skin…
First up? This True Glow Eye Serum + Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask both from Valentia Skincare. I just turned 24 and apparently now is the time I should start thinking about aging and the proper skin care…so while I am not dreaming of botox just yet (in LA it start at 30…insanity I know) I figured I would start off small with some ultra hydrating and moisturizing products like these ones that smell good and give my skin the glow I need!
Being in LA means I am outside in the sunshine A L O T! While I love getting a killer tan, I try to protect my face from sun spots, dark spots + damage with makeup and creams that have a high level of SPF in them. The perfect product? The Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector. It is light and easy to apply and keeps your skin safe from harsh sun damage (basically a requirement in Cali).
My friends say I am going to have young skin forever since I am still always breaking out and having more issues with acne than I do aging (who knew getting zits was something to be happy about haha)! To combat my oily skin and help clear and prevent breakouts, I turn to Derma e! I got these fab products a couple of weeks ago and they have really helped scrub and clear up my skin in just a matter of days. My personal favorite? The 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask! While it’s on I feel it extracting the pores and getting a deep down clean…when I was it off, my skin feels refreshed…#addictive!
And I had to add a hint of glam to the routine…these new Bite Beauty Lipstick hues have me actually wanting to wear more than just a lipgloss…They are smooth, long lasting and honestly the colors are so pigmented and really flatter my skin tone! The Amuse Bouche Lipstick comes in T O N S of shades (all perfect for work or play).
