I am a very simple girl when it comes to skin-care. That is why my goal has always been to simplify my skincare routine. Sometimes adding too much to your skincare routine can cause the products to cancel each other out and work against your skin instead of for it. Skincare doesn’t have to be fancy, but it needs to be effective. My 4-step skincare routine has been very effective in clearing my acne, hyperpigmentation, and brightening my skin.
With consistency, you will see that a simplified skincare routine gets the job done. It maintains healthy, glowing skin while effectively combating acne and other skin problems. It does take much trial and error to get the almost perfect skincare routine, but it is definitely worth it.
I have tried so many skincare products over the span of my life, but I have finally narrowed it down to the perfect products for me. I usually keep with the same products, but I might switch up a few throughout the year based on how my skin feels. For example, I tend to add a thicker moisturizer in the winter and a lighter moisturizer in the summer time.
Below you will find my go-to products along with some alternatives based on what time of year it is. Give them a try and see if they are something you would want to add into your skincare routine.
MY SKIN TYPE
I have combination skin, so I am oily in my T-zone and dry around my cheeks and chin area. I tend to use products that control my oiliness while keeping the dry parts of my skin moisturized.
