I’ve covered some heavier things than usual the past two days, and I’ve really enjoyed it. It’s so reassuring to know that other people out there understand where I am coming from and have had similar feelings (or have had similar troubles dealing with their feelings). Thanks for reading and commenting. I appreciate the interaction more than you know.
With that said, happy Wednesday! We’re already halfway through the week, and I can’t believe it. I have a feeling that my semester is going to be over before I know what hit me. On a side note, how dumb is it that I have to pay to graduate? Like, really? I knew that applying for graduating + the fees were coming, but it strikes a sour note with me now that I have to actually do it.
Anyway, today I thought I’d share my skin care routine with you. It’s something that I’ve messed with over the years, but I think I finally have it down (until my hormones change again, that is… #lifeprobs).
Now, keep in mind that while I am a girl and I do use women-marketed products, I have one major trick up my sleeve that anyone can use:
Every morning, I put a thin coating of coconut oil on my face. I don’t use face wash in the morning, just water. Then, I let my fingers melt a little bit of coconut oil and I rub it on my face, in an upward motion (I heard once that that motion prevents wrinkles).
I follow up my coconut oil with Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream. I’ve been using this for two years now and swear by it. I love way it evens out the tone of my skin. It’s also a moisturizer and has SPF, which is important even in the winter (which is crucial for dudes, too!).
At night, I keep things simple with Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover. It’s light, not too harsh on my skin, and it smells good.
Then I follow up my wash with Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream. It’s really smooth, and I love how it’s not a heavy night cream like others I’ve tried. And like it’s washing counterpart, it smells fantastic 😉
And that’s it! I like to keep my skin care routine simple. I don’t suffer from residual acne, but I have gotten some gnarly breakouts in my time. I have found that my skin has been clearer than ever since following this routine, so you can bet I won’t be giving it up anytime soon.
Oh and if you didn’t see this on Twitter (pssst follow me!) yesterday, I thought of something genius.
If you’re unsure of the word salty like I was when I first moved to the midwest, it means peeved, bitter or annoyed. Will you visit my restaurant?
Questions of the Day:
>>What’s your favorite skin care product?
>>Have you ever tired using coconut oil on your skin? You would think it’d be counterproductive, but it’s really not.
