Beauty Week // My Current Skincare Routine

Skincare is something that is absolutely near and dear to my heart. I think I've brought this up on here before, but up until the end of high school, it wasn't really something I paid much attention to. I mean, I loved products don't get me wrong, but I didn't use anything regularly and I definitely did not have any kind of routine. By the time I finished high school and started college I had learned the importance of taking care of your skin. 



I would say it has taken me about a year to build me routine and figure out the products that work best for me. I have combination skin that is pretty sensitive and prone to hormonal breakouts, but I swear my skin has ever been better since I started using Glossier products. Although I am a rep for the brand, I swear these are the products I swear by and use every single day.


I start off every morning by washing my face. The splash of water is exactly what I need to wake myself up in the morning and get me going on my day. I like to use one or two pumps of Milky Jelly Cleanser on wet skin in the morning to give myself a little refresh. After washing my skin, I will usually put a few serums on depending on what my skin needs. The Glossier serums are so great and effective. Honestly, I didn't understand the hype about serums until I finally tried them and now I don't know what I did before!. I use Super Pure when I feel a breakout coming on or around "that time of the month," Super Bounce almost always to give my skin a little bit of elasticity, and Super Glow when my skin is looking kind of dull. I follow that up with Glossier Priming Moisturizer and then some sunscreen because sunscreen is so so important! I love Glossier's Invisible Shield because it's super lightweight and completely clear so it does not leave a white cast. It also smells really good!


At night my routine is even simpler. I use Milky Jelly Cleanser to remove makeup and wash my face. First I will use 2-3 pumps on dry skin to get all of my makeup off and then, I rinse it and follow with a couple pumps on wet skin to make sure everything is clean. Once I wash my skin, I like to lather up on Priming Moisturizer Rich. It's a little too thick for during the day (especially in summer), but my skin soaks it all up over night and feels amazing in the morning. I can't get over the lavender scent either.


When I see a pimple start to rise to the surface, Mario Badescu Drying Lotion is my saving grace. My friends call it my pink sand and they used to make fun of me until they tried and saw how amazing it is. I swear it has magic powers. I also try to do a face mask at least once a week. This Origins Charcoal one and this Glossier one are my go-to's and leave my skin feeling so fresh!
