Skin care is an essential part of everyone’s day. Personally, I love the feeling of clean skin. But something that I love more than having clean skin, is my skin looking clean and youthful. I have used a lot of products through the years, but decided to make a post about my absolute favorite skin care products and essential items that everyone needs in their routine. I will not be sharing my entire routine, just because some of these products are not ones that I have used long enough to call them favorites or I haven’t noticed anything magical about them.
Every morning and night, I wash my face with my absolute favorite face wash. This face wash is a must have in my skin care routine and has been a life saver. I have gone through 3 full bottles of this product. For only $12, you get so much product. I love the way it gets super foamy and soapy because it really feels like my skin is getting super clean. Be sure to check out my favorite cleanser… Soap and Glory’s Face Soap and Clarity 3 in 1 vitamin c facial wash. This face wash is available at the drug store, but not every drug store. I know it is available at walgreens, target, and ulta, but I am unsure of where else. The brand is exclusive to the US, UK, and Canada.
My favorite summer moisturizer is the Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture for combination skin. This moisturizer is available for a variety of skin types, but the combination skin is my favorite. I think it provides just the right amount of hydration to my skin and I love the fact that it is oil free and does not clog my pores at all. I have tried other moisturizers, but keep coming back to this one. It’s affordable, lightweight, and super hydrating. You can pick up this moisturizer at basically any drug store and its super easy to find.
The biggest life saver on my bathroom counter right now is Witch Hazel. I am obsessed. I feel like witch hazel is the absolute perfect toner for anyone because it is alcohol free and gentle on the skin. I purchase Dickinson’s enhanced witch hazel toner because it had hyaluronic acid added for extra hydration but also cleans out and refines my pores. This is an absolute must in my daily skincare routine. It is super affordable and has helped to clear up my skin. It’s available at any grocery or drug store and I have it linked to walmart. I definitely think this is a must have for anyone looking for an alcohol free toner.
The next and final product is something you probably have in your house already. It’s coconut oil. Coconut oil is great for so many things and I find myself using it for various things in my beauty routine daily. You can use it to make a DIY mask or scrub, but my favorite is as a natural makeup remover. Coconut oil is great for removing even the most stubborn makeup including waterproof mascara. Before cleansing, I use coconut oil to remove my makeup. And then after applying everything else, I put coconut oil along my lashes before bed to condition and strength my short lashes. Coconut oil is pure magic. I linked my favorite coconut oil, but honestly any pure coconut oil that you buy at a supermarket will work just fine. I prefer organic and unrefined coconut oil personally, but it’s up to you.
I am still looking for an absolute must have serum and/or face oil because the last few I have tried have broken me out or I did not like the way they treated my skin, so please leave me some recommendations of your favorite affordable skin care goodies and Ill come back with my review.
