Always, Sometimes, Never: Skin Edition
links + small things
It feels like a never ending stream of new and improved skincare products and methods, and while I love to try new things, there are a few things that have been consistent for me for the last little while. Below, I’m breaking down what I do, and don’t do, to my skin!
wash my face before bed – and I always wear wrist scrunchies so water doesn’t run down my arms!
moisturize after washing my face in the morning – I’ve been using PTR Waterdrench for months and love it.
wash body in the shower
exfoliate with a gritty exfoliator – I’ve had good results with this one by No7. It has enough grit without feeling too harsh.
wear eye masks – I love the Wander Beauty ones!
apply a face mask – The Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask by Fresh is my all-time favorite.
apply eye cream (I tend to forget about this!) – Bobbi Brown Eye Base sits on my makeup vanity, I just need to throw it in my makeup bag so I don’t forget to use it.
apply self tanner to my body – read this post for recommendations and tips!
dermaplane – I don’t like the way it makes my skin feel and I always deal with little tiny breakouts afterwards too!
apply toner – Mainly because it’s not a step I’ve ever committed to doing religiously.
get intense facial procedures – My sensitive skin is only proving to be more and more sensitive as I get older so intense facial procedures make me a little nervous!
botox/injections – I am completely neutral on this topic but until this point I have never done either of these things.
