Get That Glow: My Skincare Routine



With winter approaching, I always take extra care with my skin. I'm a product junkie and and always love reading these types of posts- so here you are! I'm also passionate about healthy skincare in general, as it's taken me a long time to feel like I am in a good place with my face. I struggled with acne and breakouts as a pre-teen and teenager and it was a sore subject for many, many years. After lots of trial and error, medicated face washes and even some prescription medicine, I didn't see much difference in my skin until I started paying more attention to what I was putting into my body. My daily diet is nowhere near perfect, but as a rule of thumb, I try to limit dairy, gluten and sugar. These three things in excess sends my skin into a downward spiral and the more I read, the more this is not surprising to me. 

A little over a year ago, I slowly started switching most of my skincare to Beautycounter. I love the company's mission and anything that's better for my skin!? Well, sign me up! I've always been so passionate about what I put IN my body, that I wasn't always paying attention to what I was putting ON it. I was a ride or die Neutrogena girl for years, but my skin hasn't been happier since making the switch! I love the Beautycounter products so much that I decided to sign up as a consultant. I won't focus on that too much here, but if you would like more information, or would like to be added to my Beautycounter Facebook group, send me an email!



Here's my daily routine. It's nothing crazy or intricate, but it really works for me. I love all of these products!

Morning:




1. Beautycounter Charcoal Bar- This is what I cleanse with in the shower. I LOVE this facial bar. It cleanses and purifies and has done wonders for my face. 



2. Neutrogena Toner- I still cannot part with this. It's the most basic toner and has been a part of my skincare routine for years. 



3. Beautycounter Nourishing Eye cream- because once you turn 30 "they" say you need it.



4. Beautycounter Rejuvinating Radiance Serum- Well, I'm not getting any younger and have added a few anti-aging products to my routine, this being one of them. We'll call this...taking preventative measures. In all honesty, this serum makes my skin so soft and my complexion more even. 



5. Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion- easily one of my favorite skincare products, I love this moisturizer! I apply this right before I put on my makeup for the day.


Night:




1. Nourishing Cream Cleanser/Exfoliating Cleanser- I switch these out every other night and always cleanse at night using my Clarisonic brush. I love that thing and have been using it for almost 7 years. It has been one of my best beauty purchases to date. 



2. Beautycounter Nourishing Eye Cream


2. Beautycounter Rejuvinating Radiance Serum


3. Beautycounter Brightening Oil or Rosehip Oil- Oil is all the skincare rage these days and now I see why. I've been using it for over a year and love how soft my face feels when I wake up. It's especially necessary in the winter when the cold weather dries you out. Rosehip Oil does wonders for your skin. It's packed with vitamins and antioxidants that help improve the skin's tone, texture and pigmentation. The Brightening Oil from Beautycounter is a new addition and after almost a month of use, I'm noticing more evenness in my skin tone.



4. Nourishing Night Cream- this is also a must! I actually take a pump of cream and add 5-6 drops of whichever oil I'm using, mix it in my hand and apply to my face.

EXTRAS:




I LOVE masks! I use one every 2-3 days and typically do them at night. My all time favorite is the Beautycounter No. 3 Balancing Charcoal Mask. This is actually the product that got me hooked on these products to begin with. I alternate with the No. 1 Brightening Mask




This Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Rosewater is the best! It's a perfect midday pick me up for your skin. The smaller spray bottle is perfect for on the go!




Castor oil is supposed to be the best all-natural product to promote lash growth so I thought I would give it a go! The jury is still out on this one but I'll keep using it!
