My face has always been an issue since I was a teen with the usual breakouts. But then, I wasn’t so crazy about my looks lol! Around 19 I had it pretty good with not much blemishes or pores. Was a great time. But then I got pregnant at 20 the first time around and I broke out the entire time like no tomorrow. And being pregnant, there’s not much you can use or do! Due to this and my second pregnancy, I got some scars and huge pores. It really sucks. And I’m almost 30! I wish I had the non teen looking face haha! But I am gonna share with you a few things I use now for my skin care (and it’s nothing drastic or expensive, but works for me and will hopefully work for you!)
Firstly, my face wash is one of 2 from the Pacifica Brand. I use both and mix them up. One is the Kale Face Wash and the other is the Cocunut Milk Wash. These both are gentle on my sensitive skin as I over-dry quickly (not to mention oily too!). They also are so smooth and foamy and leave my skin feeling soft. So these, I use in the morning and at night.
Now, for night, after my face is washed and clean, I use Kiehls Rare Earth Pore Refining Toner. This I actually do find it minimizes the look of my pores. And I seriously need that! And then after that dries, I use the Nip and Fab Glycolic Fix Overnight gel. It has a funky smell, but I love how my face feels every morning! Now for my under eyes, I am still working on figuring out something I like and that works for me. If anyone has a suggestion, let me know! So that’s about it for my night routine.
For day, after washing my face, I use the Kiehls toner again that I use at night and then use the Kiehls Facial Fuel eye-depuffer with caffeine and hibiscus extract. This actually makes my under eyes look less dark and more awake. As far as moisturizer, I don’t use any as my IT Cosmetics CC cream has that plus anti aging and more (if you haven’t tried it, you must!).
Now for those annoying random cystic acne, if anyone understands what I’m talking about. I use an amazing all natural salve. It’s called Uncle Harrys Hemp Blemish Salve. I literally put this on at night at the first sign of the cyst acne (and morning), but literally the next morning the cyst is minimized. And by day 3, fully gone when normally these cysts take a couple weeks to go away!
So basically, I’m very simple when it comes to my face routine and also like it keep it more natural and less chemicals.
