My skincare usually is the same year round. I love trying new products but I have a few favorites that I can not live without. Now that it is summer I like to keep my face extra hydrated and moisturized. I use mostly the same products on my face every morning and night. My morning skincare routine consist of cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. My nighttime skincare routine consist of cleanser, toner, eye cream, and moisturizer. If I have a blemish I will apply a overnight blemish lotion and I will do a face mask once a week.
I have used this cleanser for the passed couple of years and have not found a better cleanser for my face. It is formulated for all skin types, this one-step cleanser deeply cleans pores and eliminates makeup build-up. I try to wash my face every morning and every night but sometimes I am lazy and use makeup wipes, if we are being real.
After I wash my face, I use a toner to tighten my pores. Kopari revitalizes and restores your skins natural balance. It is alcohol-free, phthalate-free, non-GMO & vegan. I close my eyes and spritz all over my face after cleansing to tighten pores.
I have used this for the last six months and really like it. After I spritz the toner all over my face, I apply this moisturizer This is a the 24 Hour, light-textured hydrator. It reduces moisture loss and has a continuous water replenishment throughout day. I have Rosacea and my skin tends to soak up moisture very fast. I tend to apply a little more on my cheeks than I do the rest of my face when my skin is really dry.
I started using this eye cream when I started using the ultra facial cream. This creamy yet uniquely concentrated avocado oil formula gently moisturizes the delicate eye area. I apply it only at night with my finger tips around my orbital bone and try to do it lightly and not pull my skin. It gives you a burst of hydration for the eye area.
I usually do a face mask once a week. This is a gentle yet effective clay mask that purifies and detoxifies clogged pores to clear complexion, eliminate dead skin cells, and restore your skin.
If I have a blemish, I apply this overnight drying lotion that battles breakouts and reduces redness, irritation and inflammation.
After I exfoliate my body or shave I use this convenient spray lotion that moisturizes and absorbs in seconds, so you can put your clothes right on and get on with your day.
It is summer and you are getting tanner and don't need a full face of makeup. It is the perfect time to let your skin glow. In the summer I normally won't put on foundation if I'm just doing a natural makeup look.
If I am just going to the pool for the day I apply BB cream that has SPF in it all over my face and I put on water proof mascara. If my skin is dry then I will put on a little facial oil before I go and lay out in the sun.
If I am going out for the day and need to look decent I usually go for a more natural look. Which consist of concealer if I have a blemish or dark circles under my eyes, foundation, a little bronzer all over my face then I contour under my cheek bones, a dab of blush and highlighter, mascara (I use two different mascaras to get a fuller look), fill in my brows with an eyebrow pencil and some lipgloss.
At night if I am going out I will put on more makeup than my natural makeup look and add eyeshadow and eyeliner.
My hair is naturally wavy and always want to dry it and straighten right after the shower. But now that it is summer and l spend a lot of days at the pool, I embrace my wavy hair.
SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
I switch my shampoo and conditioner all the time. Once the bottles are empty, I usually try something different. Right now I am using Fekkai shampoo and conditioner and love it plus it smells amazing and is available at Kroger.
I spray this on my roots while my hair is still damp if I blow dry it. I have super thin hair so this gives me more volume and really makes my hair feel thicker.
HAIR DRYER AND STYLING TOOLS
If I am not leaving my hair natural then I blow dry it after I spray my roots with the volume spray and then straighten it or curl it.
After I am done styling my hair, I dip my fingers in this cream and rub my hands together and apply it evenly throughout my hair. This helps my fly aways and frizz.
If I don't feel like washing my hair, I will just apply a little dry shampoo to it or throw on a baseball hat. I am a freak about washing my hair so I don't use dry shampoo often but when I do use it, I use Elizabeth and James dry shampoo spray or R+Co dry shampoo paste.
