Ever wonder what other people’s skincare routine looks like? Keep on scrolling to learn more about what this influencer does to keep her skin in check!
Morning skincare routine
First and foremost, this influencer skin type is oily, acne-prone, and sensitive! It is important to keep this in mind as not all the information and advice provided will be suitable for your skin type. Everyone’s skin is different and will react in different ways to certain protocols, routines, products, and techniques.
The first step of this influencer’s skincare routine is washing her face. She prioritizes cleanliness given that she is prone to breakouts and has an oily t-zone that tends to build up on her face. She starts with a bar of soap from Clinique and buffs that into her skin using a Clarisonic tool to get all the nitty gritty particles off of her face. She mentions that it lightens dark spots, exfoliates all the dead skin cells and preps her face for products.
The next step in her routine is a product application from Dermologica. This microfoliant gently scrubs her face and keeps her breakouts at bay. She mentions that it also keeps her skin looking bright which is essential for her to minimize dark spots on her skin. Soon after this step, she applies a dermatologist approved serum called Onexton for her acne prone skin.
In terms of moisturizing, she uses a Cerave product to keep her skin hydrated and supple. This is not only gentle on her sensitive skin, but it is super lightweight and does not feel oily. She then finishes off her morning skincare routine with an eye cream from Fresh.
Nighttime skincare routine
Her first step in her night time routine is to remove her makeup. She uses the Burtsbee’s gentle facial cleansing towelettes to remove most of her face makeup (including foundation). For her eye makeup she uses the Garnier micellar cleansing water with a cotton round to gently remove her mascara, eyeliner, and other products on her eyes and brows.
She then washes her face using the same products from her morning routine with her Clinique soap and Clarisonic tool. Following the face wash, she uses a night cream of Retin-a. She mentions that this is important in her routine because the specific properties in this cream (as informed by dermatologists) allows the skin cells to turn over. More specifically, retin-a is a form of vitamin A that allows the cells in your skin to maintain its life and mature at a slower rate. She finishes up her routine with the previously mentioned Cerave daily moisturizing lotion, eye cream, and chapstick to moisturize her lips.
The importance of maintaining your skin
Skincare routines can differ a lot depending on the person’s lifestyle and genetic makeup of their skin. This could be why skincare routines are so popular on a platform such as this where influencers can share what they like to do to keep their skin in check and what products they use that allows them to keep and maintain healthy skin!
