I’m so excited to share with all of you my skincare routine! I have gotten more and more into skincare the past few years and have narrowed down the brands and products I love. The past few months in quarantine have definitely gotten me hooked on my skincare. Wearing no makeup, moisturizing, and drinking A LOT more water has definitely served me well.
I usually share my favorite wardrobe finds and versatile pieces but have seen more interest in skincare from my Instagram. I am NO expert on this subject, but I know you love to discover new products like me. That is why I wanted to write this post and share what I truly enjoy using in hopes that you may love a brand I share as well!
My Morning Skincare Routine
My “getting ready” and schedule has looked a little different the past few months, and to be completely honest, it’s never a set schedule. However, even if I am not wearing makeup, I ALWAYS do my skincare routine! This first step in my morning skincare routine is washing my face with my Pixi Milky Hydrating Face Wash. I have been using Pixi makeup and their products for several years and received this as a gift to try out from the brand. I have enjoyed using it the past year because it is so gentle and gets off my creams from the night before and leaves my face feeling smooth. I then pat my face dry with my Weezie makeup towels. My mom gave me these towels a year ago, and I LOVE using them to take off my makeup or wash my face. You can now customize them and also come in adorable designs. The robe I am wearing in the pictures is also by Weezie and LOVE it! I love that it is short sleeve and is super soft and cozy. I am wearing the size small for reference.
Next, I use my Pixi Glow Tonic Toner, another Pixi favorite and a best seller for a reason! It dries very quickly and helps with breakouts during the day. I then add my Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum all over my face and neck. Before the quarantine shutdown, I looked at my skincare products and noticed I wasn’t using a moisturizer with SPF. I knew I needed to change this and have always been a fan of Supergoop’s sunscreen and have loved using the City Sunscreen Serum. On days that I am not wearing my Tinted Moisturizer or face sunscreen, I feel reassured knowing I have this to protect my face from sun damage. I also love to apply Elta MD face sunscreen if I am going on a run outside in the morning! My dermatologist recommended it to me in high school and love it for my face.
Lastly, I apply BeautyBio’s The Quench Eye Balm to my eyes. I have been rotating between this serum and the Pixi Retinol Eye Cream. Somedays, I like to change up my eye serums since I also use The Quench at night. I have loved using both and have seen fine lines reduced and makes my makeup application smoother and gives me the effect of “brighter” eyes. If I am working from home, I will then swipe on my eyebrow serum to help with growth and fuller brows. A lot of my eyebrow hair is blonde and sometimes doesn’t look like I have any! I have been doing this the past few months and have noticed they have grown a little. I will usually apply it to my eyelashes as well and have noticed a difference in length. I will then let my face be or apply makeup, depending on what I have going on that day!
Before I start my mornings and if I have all the time in the world, I love to use my rose quartz roller all over my face and neck. I keep it in my fridge, so it is nice and cold and wakes me up! I also love to put my cucumber eye patches under my eyes for about 15 minutes before doing my full morning skincare routine. I keep these in my fridge as well – nothing feels better than these under your eyes and your roller! I definitely need to add this beauty fridge to my list! To clean my rose quartz roller, I spray with my rubbing alcohol spray that came with my GloPRO – more on that in a minute! It’s a nice way to get ready and take on the day! I like to do both of these before I have dinner or an event to go to!
My Night Time Skincare Routine
In the evening, I will shower, depending on my workout schedule, if not in the morning, and wash off my face with my Pixi Milky Hydrating Face Wash. If I want to exfoliate, I will use my Rodan + Fields Unblemished Sulphur Face Wash. I then will use my Pixi Glow Tonic Toner after I wash my face and let it try.
Every other night I use my BeautyBio GloPRO on my face for about a minute. If you haven’t heard of the GloPRO, you definitely need to add it to your list! This product really helped transform my skin and allows my creams to sink deep into my skin and absorb all the goodness! When I have on makeup, I have a “brighter” or more “supple” glow added to my skin. It acts as a permanent toner and helps reduce fine lines. If you have a wrinkle – it’s not going to just erase it out of your skin. However, it does reduce the appearance and fine lines and use it as more of a preventative. Jamie Obanion, the founder of BeautyBio, is one of my favorite female entrepreneurs and has the most beautiful skin. I love to see what new products they come out with because I am so happy with the way her products have helped my skin. The GloPRO is the key to my skincare routine, and I definitely encourage you all to give it a try while it is on sale from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! A few days left, but an incredible purchase. I talk more about why I love the GloPRO in this sale in my blog post here.
So, the GloPRO is imperative for me, then apply The Quench for my face and Eyes. I love both of these products because when I wake up after a good night’s sleep, I really feel like they sunk into my skin and were really “working” to prevent lines. I have also noticed now that after a year of using the GloPRO, my pores have gotten smaller. I do not have any random monster blemishes anymore, and my breakouts are much smaller. I know the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a notorious time for bloggers to rave about products on sale – sometimes products you don’t need. However, this is one I waited for to go on sale, and I was very impressed with the results! The BeautyBio GloPRO is one I highly recommend to get at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and the goodies it comes with!
I am pretty much ready for bed after this. I apply my eyebrow serum to my brows and eyelashes and lather up in lots of lotion. I am a big fan of the Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion that I especially love for my hands. I apply it several times a day to help keep moisturized. It also can be applied to your face and neck, but I like it more for my hands and arms. I also love to switch between that and my Grown Alchemist Age Repair Hand Lotion. This is so good to put on my hands and elbows at night and smells SO good. It is a little bit more expensive and is why I switch between the two. I always apply lotion all over my body and use coconut oil all over my body if I have more time in the evenings. I love this brand, and it’s under $20. I apply it all over and wear old pajamas and let it soak in at night! My friend that used to be a model taught me this trick, and I have never looked back. I will also use my body GloPRO tool and the Sculptor lotion on my legs to help keep my skin nice and firm! I like to mix things up but don’t like too many steps – I am always so tired by the time I get to my nighttime routine!
A few additional items aside from my typical skincare routine are the BeautyBio R45 Reversal for face and Reversal for your neck. I finished the R45 Reversal for my face at the beginning of summer and would highly recommend it! BeautyBio recommends using it twice a year, and I can’t wait to order it again in the wintertime. It really changed the texture of my skin, along with my GloPRO. The skin on my face is so smooth and really gave it that summertime boost and glow! I am halfway done for the Reversal for my neck and finally starting to see progress in my skin’s elasticity. If I had to choose one, I would do the Face Reversal, but I am still very hopeful for the neck version because I love their products.
I also LOVE a good bubble bath and face mask! I try to use a charcoal mask about twice a week on my face and another light peel and polish mask to keep my skin smooth! A few other wins I love from Pixi that I know you all will love as well!
This post was so much fun to write! I wanted to share my skincare favorites for a while and finally had a moment to share my favorites with you! Of course, Teenie had to be a part of the photo shoot too!
