SKINCARE | My routine
Hello and welcome back to my channel....jk this is a blog and not a vlog. Ya dig? Anyway, today I am going to walk you through my skincare routine. If you read up on my last blog, you saw that I only wash my face once a day. Yup, once in the evening before bed. It sounds crazy, I know, but seriously this has balanced out my skin so much!
Morning: I shower and rinse my face off with water, once I am out, I apply a dime size amount of Circadia's Vitamin C Reversal Serum. After that, I apply a generous layer of Light Day Moisturizer with SPF 37. I apply it to my entire face, neck and decollete. I make sure and apply the sunscreen at least 30 mins before I leave the house so that it has the chance to absorb properly. I know that some makeup does have SPF in it, but that is definitely NOT enough to rely on and you really should have a separate moisturizer containing sunscreen for that benefit!
Evening: I cleanse with lukewarm water and Circadia's Lipid Replacing Cleanser twice. If it is exfoliation day, then I use the LRC followed by Circadia's Micro-Exfoliating Honey Cleanser. If I am wearing makeup, I remove it all with Garnier's Oil Free Micellar Water, then double cleanse after that. "Lipid replacing" means that it adds oil where it is needed and takes away where there is too much (at least, this is what I have found it to do)! This cleanser really is the best part of the whole system I use. After I rinse that off, I apply Vitamin C Reversal Serum again, followed by AquaPorin Hydrating Cream. Once that is all applied, I am off to bed! Another cool fact is: men can also use these cleansers and system!
PRO TIP: Pores are not muscles, therefore they cannot open and close. Using warm water to "open the pores" and cold water to "close the pores" is simply a myth. The reason that pores can look larger is because your skin produces an oil called sebum. Sebum can actually build up in the pores and oxidize, causing them to look like blackheads. When in reality, they are not, they are just clogged pores!
I hope this has helped you in some way or another, and if it has please share with your friends & fam!
