There are a few things this past month that I felt like I could not live without. Things that would simplify my life. Staying on top of my facial routine has become harder to do in part because I am just being lazy (lol). But with these items even the laziest person can keep their skin looking and feeling its best.
Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel
A gentle astringent (causing the contraction of body tissues) that helps fight acne, reduce inflammation, lessen bacteria growth on the skin, and helps reduce oil and redness. Using a toner is especially important for anyone with oily skin like myself. The toner helps to reduce the excess oil without overly drying out your skin. You are recommended to use the toner twice a day after you have cleansed your face and then follow with your regular moisturizer. You can also use the toner throughout the day to cleanse your skin. On days when I have to apply my makeup later in the day and want to start with a fresh face cleaning my face with the toner helps to clear my pores. It gives me a fresh canvas without having to wash my face. Which should only be done twice a day.
Cetaphil Oil Control Moisturizer
This moisturizer has been one of my new favorites. It provides a matte finish while regulating oil production and providing protection from the sun. I personally do not have acne prone skin but thought I would give it a try because I do have very oily skin. I would recommend this product for any one with oily and combination skin. It will have an overly drying effect on someone who already has dry skin. The cost and the effectiveness of this product definitely makes it a hit!
Measurable Difference Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C. What can I really say about this that you don’t already know? We all know that Vitamin C is good for your body as well as your skin. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, alleviate discoloration, and promote an even skin tone. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps slow any damage of collagen from sun exposure and aids in repairing skin. So make sure you are putting on your Vitamin C twice a week at night!
Detoxifying Silt Gelee Mask
This mask can be used on any skin type. Drawing out impurities without drying out your skin and removing the most stubborn blackheads. The buoyant mask gives your face a fresh and hydrated feel. This make is definitely a must try! If you aren’t too crazy about buying the big bottle for $60 then swing for the travel size one for way less.
Evian Facial Spray
A hydrating facial spray that can be used on a fresh face or to set your makeup. With its powerful micro-droplet mist, Evian Mineral Water Spray hydrates, tones, and refreshes skin throughout the day. It’s the only facial mist that can care for your skin on a daily basis. It can be used throughout the day to give you a refreshed and soothe look, especially for anyone with more dry skin.
