Let’s Talk Skin & My Top 5 Favorites!
My biggest piece of advice to anyone!
Before asking someone what skin care product they use, always, always, always ask them their skin care concerns. A lot of you have been asking about my skincare routine without asking my skincare concerns. Managing my skin is a lot of work and while I’m always sharing my products with you guys through direct messages on my Instagram, it’s important to know that what works for me, might not work for you.
Now let’s get into my concerns and how I treated them. My biggest concerns were combination oily skin, breakouts, the appearance of pores, fine lines, and dark spots. I tried a lot of products. Some that turned out to be a complete waste of money and some that really worked. I am going to list my Top 5 products (in no particular order) that worked for me.
Sunday Riley Luna Oil - After washing my face, I apply this oil to my face every single night. I began to see a difference in my skin within a couple of days of using this. This product has helped my skin with fine lines, pores and my oily skin.
Olehenriksen Balancing Force Oil Control Toner - I came across this product by talking to a customer in Sephora. We talked about oily skin and she bragged about how this product worked for her. I began to use this product about 4 times a week and it’s helped so much! Not only did this take care of my oily skin issues, but it also helped with my pores as well. I’m on my third bottle of this. I also use the oil-control wipes as well. The wipes are perfect for cleansing my skin and work just as good as the toner!
Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum - I found this product by taking a Sephora skin test. It was kind of expensive, so I was a bit hesitant, but I decided to go for it. Skin care is important and I was tired of skimming. I apply this product twice a day (morning and night). At times, I skip the night time application because of the other oil I use, but I never skip the day time application.
Peter Thomas Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream - this product is a great moisturizer! I realized an oily skin concern is usually driven from lack of moisture. I apply this product twice per day (morning and night).
Peter Thomas Max Mineral Naked Broad Spectrum SPF 45 - Apply SPF everyday! Regardless of skin color or type! Always apply SPF. This lotion is great for me because it’s not too oily and doesn’t leave me feeling greasy. The biggest issue I had with applying SPF was the greasy feeling and how it always clashed with my primer and makeup. This product is perfect and will take care of me this winter! it also helps with evening out your skin tone as well!
