1. Cleanser – Olay Gentle Clean Foaming Cleanser
Obviously, cleanser is a very important step for any skincare routine. I’ve been using this Olay face wash for a long time, it’s my absolute favorite! I love how gentle it is (my skin can be sensitive, so I don’t like to use anything with a ton of chemicals). Personally, I think face washes that aren’t gentle do more harm than good and cause breakouts. Something gentle like this is perfect!
2. Makeup Remover – Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water & Ponds
I love this Micellar Cleansing water from Garnier! It gently removes makeup, helps improve the tone of your skin, helps with dry patches, and moisturizes. Cleanser isn’t going to remove all of your makeup, so micellar water is a great way to remove what’s left over.
Another favorite for makeup removal… Ponds! I’ve used this stuff for years. This stuff not only removes makeup, it’s a deep cold cream cleanser as well!
3. Astringent – Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Eliminating Astringent
Astringent can improve your skins appearance by minimizing pores and drying up oily skin. Astringent is meant to be applied after cleanser, but before moisturizing. Astringent also helps remove dead skin, bacteria, and any makeup that was left behind even after makeup remover.
4. Moisturizer – Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
Moisturizer is a very important step in any skincare routine and this Clinique moisturizer is one of my personal favs! It’s so hydrating and again, works well for my sensitive skin. However, I’ve found that when it comes to moisturizer, everyone has their own favorite. I’ve talked to people who do not like this moisturizer at all. I personally love it, but my general recommendation is that you use a moisturizer that YOU love in your skincare routine, it doesn’t necessarily have to be this one! But you should definitely find one that you like.
6. Face Mask (2x per week)
A few of my favorites…
