Hi all, today I’m bring you my current skincare routine! I’m kind of tired of doing just review blogs, so I thought this would be a fun way to change it up a bit. Hope you enjoy, and let’s begin!
About Where I Live:
So you have to make a routine that matches the climate you’re from. I live in Alaska, and currently it is cold and dry; like crack your face open dry. So I need to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Also, I can’t use a face wash that strips my face of tons of oil.
We can break my skincare routine into two different sections: the everyday routine and the twice a week routine. I do this because there are some products that aren’t good for everyday use.
I take my showers in the morning, so that’s when I wash my face. I alternate between two foam products, but I change the formula up every winter. Last year I used the Inissfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam, and that was really nice! However I wanted to try some new products, so now I’m using the The Face Shop Herb Day Cleansing Foam in Aloe. It’s really good, because it’s a very gentle formula. I alternate it with the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash, which I’ve been using since middle school.
After that I use the Naturie Hatomugi Skin Conditioner as a toner, and I also put this in a little spray bottle so I can take it with me when I travel. When I went to Florida last month, because of all the humidity, I only had to use the skin conditioner to have moisturized skin. It was so nice!
Then I alternate between two different types of lotion, the Etude House Face Conditioning Cream, and the TonyMoly Pure Eco Skin Moisture Gel. I really love snail creams because I find that they both moisturize and work to repair your skin. Another snail gel I use is the Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream, but I’m currently out of that product.
At night I wash my face with a foaming cleanser if I wear makeup, if not I just rinse it with water. Some people prefer to wash their face every night too, but I find that that dries my face out too much. Everyone is different, so keep that in mind!
Twice a Week Routine
If I have some kind of face mask’s lying around, I use that twice or even once a week. I’m kind of broke right now, so I typically don’t use them more than once.
Every Monday and Thursday I use an exfoliating wash. Currently I’m using the TonyMoly Floria Brightening Peeling Gel, and this is just a mild peeling gel. I used to use the St. Ives Green Tea scrub, but I’m currently out of that product. Plus I feel like the peeling gel is more effective, and my skin is a lot clearer since I started using it.
Another thing I use is The Face Shop Herb Day Massage Cream in Mugwort once or twice a week. I really enjoy this product because it’s so moisturizing, and it helps me relax!
So yeah, there’s my skincare routine! Let me know if you liked it, and/or if you want to see a review on any of the products above!
