My Skincare Routine

Thursday, July 6, 2017

After sharing my makeup routine with y'all not too long ago, I wanted to share my skincare routine as well. I like to think of skincare as the foundation for your makeup as if you don't properly take care of your skin, your makeup won't work to its full potential for you. Not to mention, a good skincare routine helps your skin look its best even when you're not wearing makeup, which I definitely won't complain about.

My skincare routine is fairly simple and to-the-point, which makes it easy to follow for me as it doesn't have a million and one steps to follow!

My Morning Routine

1. First, I wash my face using the Cetaphil Daily Face Cleanser. My morning routine used to be super complicated with lots of steps but I recently switched to only using one face cleanser and it makes my life so much easier in addition to being better for my skin. I also use my Clinique Brush to make sure my skin absorbs the cleanser before drying off my face.

2. I've been using First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Cream as my moisturizer for the past year and a half and love it. It helps with dry skin without feeling too "heavy" at the same time.

My Evening Routine

1. Just like in the morning, I use the Cetaphil cleanser with my Clinique Brush. Nothing too crazy here!

2. If I wore makeup that day (sometimes I like to let my skin breathe if I don't have any major plans that day), I will then take off my makeup using the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes or the Boscia Charcoal MakeUp Melter Cleansing Oil Balm. I received the Boscia Oil Balm as a sample from Sephora and really like it so far. It is a bit odd as you apply it all over your dry face and then rinse with warm water to remove your makeup but it does a really good job. On nights where I'm feeling a bit more lazy, I'll use the wipes as they are always such a good go-to!

3. At night, I use Clinique's Moisture Surge as a moisturizer as it's a bit heavier but leaves your skin so soft and refreshed. I feel like it makes my skin look a bit more vibrant, which is always love to wake up to in the morning.

4. Even though it is primarily an anti-aging cream, I do apply a little bit of Fresh's Loutus Youth Preserve Face Cream underneath and around my eyes for a bit of an added boost. Anti-aging and wrinkles obviously aren't a current concern of mine but I do occasionally get bags underneath my eyes from a lack of sleep or stress and this cream really helps with combatting those.

What does your skincare routine look like? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I've been looking at the Ultra Repair Cream for a while.. might have to give it a go myself! Would you say it would be okay for combination skin as well?
    I also did a recent post on my skincare routine: :-)

    1. My skin is fairly normal but on the drier side and I love it! They have a bunch of different sizes and you could probably ask for a sample in Sephora to try it out! Thanks for reading, Katie!
