One of the biggest compliments that I receive is that I have nice skin!
Having good skin is partly due to genetics, but I do take good care of it. Your epidermis is the largest organ in your body, and it's important to not overlook it when it comes to health.
Everyone's skin is different, but I have a few staple products that I use which have proven to be beneficial for my own skin.
Here are the products that I use to maintain my bright and healthy skin. All products can be shopped by clicking the links!
You're probably sick of hearing it, but wear your sunscreen! Not only has sunscreen been proven to slow down the signs of aging from environmental impacts, but it is also a great way to decrease your risk of skin cancer.
I use an SPF that's anywhere between 40-100. I like this sunscreen from Supergoop because it is lightweight and airy under my makeup, but any sunscreen will do. It's just a matter of personal preference.
Hyaluronic acid is something that my dermatologist recommended to maintain moisture and firmness in my skin.
Hyaluronic acid fills skin with hydration for a visibly plump effect, and can be added before your moisturizer to help your skin absorb even more moisture from the product.
Glow Recipe is a brand that is new to me, and I absolutely love it. If you're looking for a fool proof serum, I recommend this one!
Origins is a brand that creates great skin care essentials, and I use more than one of their products in my routine. This eye cream has a small shine to it, which gives your eyes the appearance of being brighter and more awake.
I've tried many moisturizers, but this moisturizer from Glamglow is my favorite for many reasons. It is cool on my skin and it has a refreshing scent to it. Not to mention it really wakes up my skin in the morning.
It's a great product to use even on days when you're not wearing makeup because it gives your skin a healthy glow.
Pro tip: Don't forget to apply this cream to your neck as well! Someone once said to me, "You're only as young as your neck." Although I don't think your main focus with skin care should be anti-aging, it is a nice reminder that your neck deserves some extra love too!
I was talking to a man who was shocked that I wash my face every day. Your face doesn't touch as many things as your hands do, but it is still exposed to dirt as well as natural oils.
This face wash from Origins is my favorite, and I have been using it for years now. It foams up perfectly with warm water and is extremely gentle, yet effective, when removing dirt, oils, and makeup.
I saw someone use this cloth on Instagram and it looked too good to be true. This girl used only water and one swipe on her face to remove her makeup- I knew I had to try it.
The Makeup Eraser works as an environmentally friendly makeup wipe, as it can be reused as many times as you'd like. It works great with just water, but for even better results, soak the cloth in water and add your favorite face cleanser to the mix.
As an added bonus it's super soft which allows it to be extremely gentle on your skin- there's no tugging on your skin when you use this face cloth.
