What's your daily skin care routine?

 

Share your am and pm routine here and let's help each other out by giving ideas on skin care products that work. I thought it would be fun to get this type of thread going again. We used to have a similar and encourage all you lurkers to chime in too. :) We are a community of beauty obsessed so let's help each other out because the beauty struggle is real right? Aren't we all looking for the best next thing in skin care? I've tried hundreds if not thousands of products and still try new ones only because I love to do it. I had my skin care set for a while but then got bored and started using different products again and not a day goes by that I don't at least window shop at Sephora.  :lol: I'm a huge fan of Korean skin care too but I just love skin care in similar and trying out new products is fun. I hope you all with join me in sharing our routines so that others can get information and ideas for theirs and we can all talk about what works and what doesn't.

I'm trying a new routine for a week now despite sticking to The Ordinary full routine for months.

The changing weather makes my skin go crazy, I do not even know which part of my routine I can change.

 

It has been humid lately and my usual normal skin became so dry (as per last facial I had), I was told to use heavy moisturizer at night so my skin will be hydrated in the morning. Being the rebel I am, I don't listen to instructions. :D

 

Anyway, my morning skin routine goes like this:

OLEHENRIKSEN Balance It All

1. Cleanser -- Find Your Balance™ Oil Control Cleanser

2. Toner -- Balancing Force™ Oil Contol Toner

3. Moisturizer -- Counter Balance™ Oil Control Hydrator

 

Influenster sent me a set to try and glad that I am able to use them because suddenly my dry skin goes oily during daytime.

 

You can buy a trial set in Sephora if you do not want to commit to full sizes.

For nightime, I do not usually have time for a complex routine. I am a SAHM so I do not wear makeup all the time. If I do, I use DHC oil cleanser to remove my makeup.

1. Cleanser -- Shamanuti Activated Charcoal cleanser (sample size from Birchbox)

2. Toner -- evian facial spray

3. Moisturizer -- Farsali Rose Gold Elixir

 

I had been using the Farsali elixir but still contemplating if I'll continue. It just sits on my skin the whole night, then when I wash my face in the morning, my skin feels so dry. Also, I got a little breakout as I understand that my skin is adjusting to my new routine. Hopefully next week, my skin goes back to normal, if not, I'll go back to using The Ordinary Lactic Acid serum.

For my routine I really only use three products! I am very simplistic when it comes to skincare, and to be completely honest I've always been a bit lazy. So it took me awhile to find products that are easy for me to use and to remember to use. In the morning I use neutrogena naturals cleanser, toner, and then neutrogena moisturizer for sensitive skin. At night to remove my makeup I only use ONE product as my nighttime regimen. I use Albolene Moisturizing Cleanser because it removes my makeup in one swoop with no water or soap and leaves my face so moisturized and ready for bed. This is definitely my favorite product I've found thus far and it's an essential part of my skincare regimen (link removed).Here's the link so you can see for yourselves because this a product I want everyone to know about.

In morning I wash my face with cleanser. I am very cautious about in skin matter. I always prefer organic beauty products for the skin. Products from Kaiame Naturals are really good. From few months I am using these products and really satisfied.

In the morning and at night I've been using Sephora's oil cleanser (love the scent) as well as a salicylic acid cleanser for acne (brand changes but right now using neutrogena).  The double cleanse seems to work well for me especially at night with all the dirt and makeup to remove. In the morning I follow it with Coola sunblock, then primer and makeup.  At night I follow it with truth serum and Julep sleeping mask.

Hyderabad is a highly polluted area in India. So, whenever I come from office or whenever I go to the office, I use facewash to clean my face.

Skincare routine varies among different skin types. Before you build skincare routine, firstly you must know about your skin type. I personally prefer natural product for my skin such as aloe vera gel, coconut oils and also drink more water to keep your skin hydrated.

I start my skincare by washing the skin with a scrub and then eat something healthy like Fruits.

This year I reacquainted myself with toner and exfoliating. At first, exfoliating made me a little flakey, I found out later that was normal. I use a simple 4 step process

Step 1: Cleanse/exfoliate, using my face brush. I had a roommate in high school who was from Japan, she got me hooked on the face brush. 

Step 2: WIpe away the cleanser with a face shammy

Step 3: Appy toner using organic cotton round.

Step 4: Apply eye cream and moisturizer.

 

Once a week or so I will give myself a face mask, usually one with activated charcoal. Occasionally I will do some additional exfoliating with a sugar/coconut oil scrub I make myself.

Hey everyone,

I have recently been looking into organic products and am hoping someone can tell me about good (or bad) organic skincare products they have used or have heard good things about. I know the organic is supposed to be better so i would like to try one or several if you have any suggestions.

Hi,

Thank you for asking.

Well to be honest, for me it is quite difficult to follow a steady skincare routine to follow. Because now and then I get to try and review different skincare and beauty products. With so much skin care advice out there and multitudes of products to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to focus your energy.

Hi guys!

I just moisturize with a hydrating moisturizer and then I lock it in with moroccan argan oil, that I know is cruelty-free, it’s from Virginic: https://virginic.com/collections/oils/products/moroccan-argan-oil 

In the morning I don't really use any face wash (I've heard you're not supposed to wash your face in the morning). I’ve been using the Bobbi Brown hydrating moisturizer. 

this one: https://www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/product/14007/12761/skincare/moisturizer/hydrating-face-cream/fh10 . 

However, I'm looking for a brand that would be completely cruelty-free. Any recommendations for oily skin?

In the evening I use any natural makeup remover, antibacterial face wash, Pixi toner, physicians formula moisturizer and then moroccan oil again.

Hi there!

CLEANSE (morning and night): I usually use a simple face wash in the morning and in the evening. Clinique liquid facial soap is probably my favorite.

EXFOLIATE (nighttime): I really love De Lu Chamomile Almond Body Scrub (found it at DeLu-MH.com) for exfoliating. It smells amazing and makes my skin feel so soft! I use it just about every time I shower on both my body and face.

Awesome! Reading through here helped me and I learn a lot of skin care tips. I usually just get my makeup using a makeup remover (Night tine) and cleanse my face with a facial soap or toner, then that's it. I can then go to sleep. However, I make sure to get a facial treatment once a week or thrice a month.

Hi Everyone,

For my routine to be honest, it's quite difficult to follow a routine skincare. Sometimes I become so extra careful for my skin and the other times I become so lazy that I even forget to apply moisturizer; but yes one thing I sure to use in my routine is a natural face makeup remover cloth

Not a single day when before going to bed I haven't used it. It's enough to take off the whole day dust and dirt from my face.

I would recommend you to use it.😊

In the morning: Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen. You’ve probably heard this before, but it’s worth repeating: Sun protection is a skin care routine must. In the morning, apply a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher—after moisturizer but before applying makeup—as directed. You should reapply sunscreen at least every two hours or immediately after swimming or sweating. But sun protection doesn’t end at applying sunscreen. There are other measures you should take, too. Limit your amount of time in the sun (especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., which are the sun’s peak hours), seek shade, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.

At night: Remove your makeup. Sleeping in your makeup isn’t exactly the best idea. When you sleep in your makeup, it can mix with the dirt and oil on your skin, leading to clogged pores. Keep a bottle of micellar water, on your nightstand for easy makeup removal. Micellar water is powered by tiny micelle molecules that cluster together to surround and lift away impurities from the skin’s surface. This micellar water removes even waterproof makeup and leaves skin with a hydrated feel. Simply saturate a cotton pad with micellar water and hold it over closed eyes for a few seconds before gently wiping to remove your mascara, eyeliner, and eyeshadow. You can also wipe the pad across your face.

At night: Swipe on a peel pad. Want a brighter-looking complexion? Think about adding a peel pad, such as the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads, to your nightly skincare routine. The multi-ply textured pads physically resurface dead skin cells on skin’s surface to reveal the youthful-looking skin underneath. Smooth a pad over your face after facial cleanser and follow up with face moisturizer. Freshly revealed skin may be sensitive to sunlight, so set a reminder to apply broad-spectrum sunscreen and take other sun protection measures in the morning (as you’ve just learned, this is a skin care routine step you should never skip!).
