When is the right time to start using skincare products, and what products should you even begin with? My mom has always said the earlier the better, so it all began for me when I was about 15 years old. I’m not talking about advanced skin care or exfoliation, no…none of that. Just regular products and a basic skin care regimen to keep my dry skin healthy and hydrated. As time passed, new concerns came up along the way — namely, how do I keep wrinkles and random breakouts at bay? Well, it took me about ten years to get where I am now with my morning and nighttime skincare routine, and to finally love each and every product on my shelf. (Call me picky!).
Welcome to my skincare regime:
Essential-C Cleanser has phospholipids and sodium PCA which attract and bind moisture to dry skin, while a combination of vitamins A, C and E defend skin from free radical damage.
Lancom Tonique Toner is perfect to use when my skin feels a little drier than usual.
Olehenriksen Facial Water I use this when I need to add some hydration to my skin before or after makeup. It’s also great for touch ups throughout the day.
Thayers Witch Hazel Toner is perfect for when I start noticing my skin tone is uneven, plus it gets rid of every last trace of makeup that didn’t come off after cleansing my face.
Biossance 100% Squalane Oil is the holy grail for my dry skin. I felt like this is what I have been missing my whole life.
love this SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture I because it doesn’t clog my pores. I used to have little bumps on my forehead from using heavy moisturizer. This one has not done that, and the bumps are all gone. I only use moisturizer during the day because I feel oils and creams would be too heavy to sit on my skin all night.
Banana Bright Eye Cream: I haven’t experimented with too many eye creams yet, but I do like this one a lot.
