Hello, everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful day.😄 Today, I have come to talk about my daily facial routine and what I use. Knowing which products to use and when is challenging sometimes, so I have written this in the hope that y’all will benefit from my experiences.
I have spent a lot of time experimenting what works on my face. And, I know it can be quite frustrating to not be able to find the right products for you. There are so many different types of skin, and nobody’s skin is just like anyone else’s. Mine is combination, if that helps y’all decide whether or not to try my routine.😉 Combination skin is exactly what it sounds like- a combination of two or more types of skin. (For a description of all the types and how to treat them, go here.)
Every morning, I wash my face with this facial cleanser from Brandless. It is all-natural, without harsh products that harm your skin. It is more of a gel than a cream, and it doesn’t dehydrate my skin, which is beneficial.😂 And, I really love the grapefruit scent! After that, I use the facial toner that is also from Brandless. It smells wonderful, as well! The green apple scent is lovely- it isn’t too strong or too weak, either. Those two products work really well together for my morning routine.
Every night, I use this lotion and this cleanser. While everything else I use is from Brandless, the facial scrub I use is not. I still have leftovers that I am trying to get through before I switch to a Brandless scrub. They have this scrub I am going to use when I finish the rest of my current one. The Brandless lotion goes perfectly with a scrub, because it is thick and very moisturizing. I really love Brandless if you couldn’t tell!😜
In addition, I am going to list a few tips that I have found very useful:
- Hairspray clogs your pores big time!
Seriously. Using hairspray always breaks me out, so I always wash my face immediately afterward. And I don’t use excessive amounts!
- Be consistent.
Like most things, consistency is key here. If your face needs washed every morning and every night, you need to do it every morning and every night. Or it just won’t work!
- Don’t be afraid to figure out what works and what doesn’t.
I have done a lot of experimenting to come to the conclusions I have for my face. I have tried many different brands and products, and these are the ones I have found that work for me! If I wouldn’t have done that, I wouldn’t have ever found out what works for my face.
- Keep your hair up and away from your face.
This is a seemingly insignificant detail, but it really matters! I always have my hair in a topknot, and, if I don’t, oil builds up super quick.
- Caffeine effects your face!
It really does, so I avoid pop and/or coffee to keep my face from being oily. It took me too long to figure this one out!
I am so glad I finally figured out a routine that works for me! I also hope that I helped some of y’all decide which products to use and/or try.🙃 And now I’m thinking I need a whole post on Brandless alone…😂
