My Easy Skin Care Routine
It has taken me a while to figure out what products work best for my skin. I have tried so many soaps hoping that my face would clear up. Throughout high school, I struggled with acne. I felt like I could never get rid of it. My mother, who has used Neutrogena for a majority of her life had suggested that I tried Bioré. Once I tried it, I knew Bioré was going to be my new Holy Grail face wash.
I first wipe my face with makeup remover wipes. Wipes will not remove all the makeup, so it is pertinent to wash your face with soap to remove the residue and help minimize acne from developing. I use the Bioré to wash my face after removing my makeup. What I love most about this face wash is that it has exfoliating beads to really scrub the skin to ensure that the skin will be left feeling soft and properly cleansed. I have used some face washes that have left my face feeling dry and as if it did nothing to help fight the acne.
I use the Clinique Clarifying Lotion in number 3 for combination oily skin. There are different clarifying lotions for different skin types which is awesome because the product can really cater to many people. I like to use this after I wash my face since the pores are still open, so the clarifying lotion can really be soaked into the skin. There are times when I use this product even if I didn't wash my face, because it can still remove some of the access residue makeup.
Hydrating the face is so important. I think that applying lotion to your face daily can help slow down wrinkles from forming. The Olay is very good for moisturizing your face in the morning and during the summer because it is light and won't leave your face feeling sticky or oily. During the winter I started using Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Refining Moisture Cream Complex. This cream is pretty heavy so I suggest that you use it at night. I love how luxurious it feels on the skin. My only complaint is the scent, it is not really pleasant but the main concern should be that the product is doing its job.
I found that these simple and easy steps has dramatically reduced the acne on my face. These steps must be done everyday to get the best results.
I hope my easy skin care routine will help you too!
