I hate to admit this, but I have not always been the best when it comes to having a good skincare regime and following a plan. I have gone through stages of skincare, but honestly nothing that has lasted me a while. My skin is naturally pretty clear, which I guess is a blessing! While my skin is generally “clear”, I do suffer from larger pores. My skin sometimes isn’t as “smooth” as I would like it either. I am always on the hunt for skincare that truly cleanses, nourishes, diminishes wrinkles (You are NEVER too young to start protecting your skin y’all..) and brightens my skin.
Currently, I use a couple different products religiously and I have noticed great changes in my skin. My skin feels soooo much softer, looks so much healthier, and I now love to wear no makeup out in public….no worries! I have gotten so many compliments just in this past month alone that my “skin looks so clear” or “perfect”…haha! There are a couple tips & products I have been loving that have helped my skin look so much better…it’s not just natural. LOL!
I have been using Philosophy Purity for over a year. I use this every night to take off my makeup. Purity is amazing because it gently cleanses your skin and removes all dirt and oil from the day. This stuff is so gentle, but so powerful! It takes off alllll of my makeup off, even waterproof mascara and my full Game Day makeup (which is a lot of product…lol). I always feel so clean afterwards.
It also lasts me a long time. I am still using the same 16 fl oz bottle I bought months ago and I still have half left. It is seriously worth every penny (and it isn’t even expensive). I swear by it.
Yes, I put oil on my face. And my skin is naturally more oily than dry. I KNOW I sound crazy, but y’all…it seriously has made the biggest difference in my skin. I have never seen my skin so bright, healthy, smooth, and soft. I have been using this facial oil by Puristry. This brand is great because everything is organic and made from nature. All I do is put a dime size amount into my hand and gently rub it into my skin after cleansing.
When it comes to facial oils, I think every one needs to invest in one. I know I sound crazy because WHY would you want to add oil to your face when everyone wants that matte finish. Well, the reason is because our skin craves moisture. Sometimes, your skin produces more oil because it is dehydrated and craving that moisture. Instead of forcing your skin to overproduce oil, apply the good stuff! I have already noticed a significant difference in my forehead wrinkles. Like…they’re gone. It’s because of this oil!
The most important step, right?! I have tried a couple different moisturizers, and to be honest, I love them all. HA! I have used so many great ones, but currently my favorite one is also from the brand Puristry. This one is soooooo light weight, so it really sinks into your skin. Ladies, if your moisturizer feels heavy after you apply it and thick, it isn’t the right one for you. Moisturizer is NOT supposed to just sit on your skin. The idea behind moisturizer is that it goes INTO your skin to erase wrinkles, smooth, and hydrate your skin. If your moisturizer is too thick and won’t melt into your skin, you are simply wasting your money on a product that isn’t really doing anything for your skin.
This product is amazing because, again, it is made out of all natural and raw products. It is extremely light weight and feels so good on your skin. I love pairing this with the facial oil. Honestly, I have seen so many great changes in my skin since using these products!
