My Skincare Routine for Oily Skin October 19 2016, 0 Comments

My skin type is very oily not sensitive, if you have similar skin this might work for you. Starting with the morning I like to keep it very simple. I only wash my face with the Aveeno Positively Radiant Brightening Wash in the morning. It is a very light wash that it is almost like rinsing with water! I then continue with my Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On for under and around my eyes to make them look more awake. This stuff is great I instantly notice my eyes look different.

I then finish off with my Simple Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15. This is mainly to protect my acne scars so they do not get worse. I recently learned that sun makes the hyperpigmentation marks darker and so I added this light moisturizing SPF! After this I put on my make up. I never really wear face make up unless I'm going out or to an event that I want to cover all my acne or scars. I usually never wear anything to work. Its much better for your skin to not clog all those pores with foundation, it’s not good for your skin.

At night its much more complicated. On a regular night that I do not use a facemask I either wash with a sulfur wash my dermatologist prescribed me, or my Movis cleansing bar from Lush. If I wore make up I will use the Simple Exfoliating Facial Wipes to get it all off.

After cleansing I use the toner that I made. Its just equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water in an old lush spray bottle! I use a cotton ball to wipe that all over my face. I think all toners do the same, and that’s to just get a deeper clean than the cleanser. Next I put on my Curology. This is an online prescription, kind of like pro active but a personalized bottle of ingredients to fit your acne fighting needs from a real dermatologist. This is new in my routine that I am trying out for my active breakouts.

After I let that sit I put on my Neutrogena Naturals multi-vitamin nourishing night cream. I love this night cream I notice such a difference in my skin right after one night. I stopped using it for a bit, for no particular reason just kept forgetting near finals and then I did one night and my skin was so lovely the next day. I really love the Neutrogena Naturals line, the ingredients are very simple and work so great on my skin.

I finish off with my Neutrogena Healthy Skin eye cream and if I have any huge pimples on my face I will put some Clean and Clear persa-gel on the pimple to treat it over night! This contains 10% benzoyl peroxide. And then I'm done and go to bed!
