I don’t want to jinx it, but I feel like I’ve finally figured out what works for my skin.
I went from having average high school acne, to dealing with super dry skin, to battling consistent pimples on my chin and forehead. Bleh. Not only was it frustrating, it was also exhausting trying to stay one step ahead of my ever-changing face.
Settling into a healthy, balanced lifestyle seems to have made a bigger difference than anything in terms of my skin. It’s amazing what consistently nourishing your body, eating a wide variety of foods and exercising regularly can do. Sure, I still eat a lot of “bad skin” foods (ahem, chocolate, chips and wine…) but nobody’s perfect and I’m not willing to give those up. #sorrynotsorry
I absolutely swear by the products I’ve been using over the past few months. Some are drugstore and some are high-end (aka: slightly expensive) but, considering I only get one face, I’m willing to invest.
Current Skincare Routine:
Once A Week
Yep. For the past few months I’ve been trying to go one day every week with zero makeup. It tends to happen on lazy days where I’m not working or at an event (obviously) but I don’t force myself to hide indoors. I’ve finally gotten to a point where I don’t mind going out fresh-faced. It’s kind of liberating, actually. My skin absolutely loves it and I wake up the next day feeling completely refreshed.
What are your favorite skincare products? Are you comfortable going out sans-makeup?
