HEY GUYS!! I am excited to finally be posting my highly requested AM/PM skincare routine! So many people messaged me on instagram and asked me for this so I decided that even though I have a skincare post already, I will give you all a deeper and updated look into what I do for my skin.
I decided to give you all a look into my skincare/beauty cabinet so you could see all of the products I alternate with. I am only going to dive deep into the products that I am CURRENTLY using daily. I will post updates when things change! All products will be linked for easy shopping.
Let’s start off with cleanser-
I currently am using Orgins Checks and Balances cleanser with my Clarisonic both day and night. This cleanser doesn’t over dry out your skin but it leaves you feeling CLEAN. Some cleansers leave a film on your face or don’t make you feel confident that you removed all the ick from your day. This one does. I love it for my oily skin and it removes makeup! (warning- not sensitive eyes friendly).
AM skincare routine-
After cleansing in the morning, I ALWAYS follow with Sunday Riley Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner. This toner is AMAZING for oily or acne prone skin. It is also good for sensitive skin! It is one of the only products that has truly changed my skin. It balances my oils and keeps them at bay all day. It also calms redness and irritation!
I then make myself a little skin cocktail out of the Glossier Supers Pack. I have Super Pure, Super Bounce, and Super Glow. These are lightweight serums that soak up quickly into the skin and leave no oily residue. These little bottles will drastically change the appearance of your skin. Super pure is for acne prone skin, super glow leaves me feeling radiant, and super bounce plumps my skin for a youthful and healthy glow. These three together are unstoppable!
Following, I use the Peter Thomas Roth Environmental Repair Hydrating Gel. I love this because it’s an awesome lightweight moisturizer and it has vitamin A in it! If you have oily skin- vitamin A should be your BEST friend. As some of you know, I went on Accutane a couple of years ago. Accutane is essentially just super concentrated vitamin A! To be honest, I wish I could stay on a tiny dose of Accutane my entire life because of how beautiful it made my skin. Therefore I JUMP at any products with vitamin A involved. For those of you with super dry skin, skip this one and try a more rich and hydrating moisturizer (like the next one I am going to talk about).
Lastly, I use the Glossier Priming Moisturizer. I LOVE this product. It is a rich yet somehow still lightweight moisturizer that doubles as a primer and preps your skin for makeup application. The best part? IT ALSO HAS VITAMIN A IN IT!! It leaves your skin extra hydrated, plump, and all around super healthy looking. Not to mention- makes makeup application flawless! (I even wear this alone on my no makeup days).
PM skincare routine-
This one is a little less predictable because I try to alternate things throughout the week. I will explain my process as I go!
My favorite product of the entire bunch- Sunday Riley UFO Oil. You have probably heard me talk about this before. I am obsessed with it. I go through bottles like a mad man. I need help honestly. It is just honestly my skin’s savior. Nothing has ever changed my skin like this product. I don’t know what exactly they put in here that makes your skin so beautiful, but I will forever be grateful. The product description says:
“With 1.5 percent salicylic acid, this fast-acting, quick-drying, medicated oil clears acne and blackhead-causing buildup and debris from congested pores for smoother, blemish-free skin. Tea tree oil and black cumin seed oil support clear skin, while hexylresorcinol and licorice naturally brighten the appearance of old acne discolorations for a more even-toned complexion. Counterbalancing the potentially drying effects of salicylic acid, milk thistle and cucumber seed oil nourish the skin and smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles, without leaving a greasy residue. Chamomile and neroli soothe stressed, blemish-prone skin.”
ARE YOU SOLD YET? You should be. I must warn you- this comes with a good 2 week breakout period. A lot of people give up on it before it has a chance to fully work its magic. Hang in there for the prettiest skin of your life!!
Once or twice a week, I swap out UFO for Sunday Riley Luna Oil which is specifically meant as a sleeping night oil. It is a heavier oil that combats dry or tired skin in a FLASH. You will wake up with visibly more luminous skin. The product description says:
“Luna works throughout the night to deliver more visibly youthful, luminous, even-toned skin in the morning. Trans-retinoic acid ester (retinol) complex reduces the appearance of pores and wrinkles, while visibly improving the signs of premature aging, including fine lines, uneven texture, age spots, dryness, and dullness. Balanced with blue tansy and German chamomile essential oils—both rich in soothing, blue azulene—the look of redness and sensitivity are visibly balanced for a calm, even-toned complexion. Luna is clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, radiance, and skin smoothness in as little as four weeks, while advanced retinol ester mixed with potent botanicals makes this product the ultimate transformational, soothing, sleeping night oil.”
Whichever oil I use, I let it sink in about 5 minutes and then follow with Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment. This stuff OBLITERATES acne scarring, dark spots, dullness, and texture. I am someone who used to have pretty intense acne scarring and I still struggle with it. This treatment has helped SO MUCH and has allowed me to be able to go makeup-less (and even prefer the way my skin looks without foundation)!
The last two products are kind of add ons! They are only used when needed. The first is the Glam Glow Powermud Dualcleanse Treatment Mask. I use this once a week- usually when my skin is extra clogged and needs a DEEP cleanse. It features OILIXER, which is a custom blended complex of four powerful, rare, non-greasy, and fast-absorbing deep cleansing oils. CLAYTOX is a carefully balanced four-clay blend specifically developed to provide an ultragentle skin detoxification for a maximum yet delicate cleanse. And PUREIFIER is a complex mix of cleansers, astringents, and exfoliators, working in synergy to dramatically purify and condition the skin.
Lastly, I use Kate Sommerville Eradikate for any breakouts that need to be spot treated! This is a super powerful sulfur treatment that will dry up a pimple overnight!
Let me know if you use or love any of these products! I hope you enjoyed my AM/PM skincare routine!
