I'll start with what I do at night. Usually I'm taking off makeup so the first thing I do is use the Neutogena facial wipes to remove all of the visible makeup. Next I start my cleansing routine. If you do nothing else you should always Cleanse, Tone, Treat, and Moisturize
As you can see I use a Clarisonic. The Clarisonic cleanses 10X better than your fingers so what ever cleanser your using will just cleanse that much better.
I chose to use the Phylosophy Purity made simple at night because it removes makeup. That's a quality all cleansers do not have.
I love the way this makes my skin feel. It's refreshing and cooling and leaves my face smooth and extra clean. I just put the toner on a cotton round and wipe my intire face avoiding the eye area.
So now were all cleansed and toned. Before you Moisturize you want to treat your skin. There are over a million products to choose from so depending on your skin conserns that will determine how you will treat your skin. For me, I'm always looking to make my skin look flawless and I look for products to controle my oily skin.
Don't forget about your eyes:
I always use some type of eyecream. At this time I'm using Phylosophy Full of promise it's double sided, one for under the eye and the other end is for the eye lid. Make sure you read how to use the products as most eyecream a should not be used on the lid unless otherwise stated. Always use your ring finger to apply anything under your eye as that areas is thin and delicate.
After applying the eyecream I apply some type of strum and at the moment I'm using Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford. This you only use once a day so I use this at night. (My skin loves this).
The last step is your moisturizer. Before I started on my clinique routine I was only using the seaweed night moisturizer my Mario Basescu. Now I still use this moisturizer but now after I apply the dramatically different moisturizing gel I also apply the MB last. Do I need both probably not put it's not pore clogging and it's oil free so why not. When I run out of the seaweed night cream. I'll just use the Clinique moisturizing gel. I'm sure it will be just fine.
So. That's my Night time skin routine. Let's talk about out daytime Skincare.
As you can see new products are replacing some of my night time products. I still Cleanse, Tone,Treat, and Moisturize.
So. In the A.M. I use the Clinique liquid facial soap for oily skin. If course with my awesome Clarisonic. This is a clean, fresh, and tingly cleanser. I can say I've never had a cleanser that feels like this. It's cooling and I just love it. It leaves that fresh clean feeling.
After I cleanse I still use the same toner.
So..The products I use to "treat" my skin in the daytime is more for controlling oil and sun protection. I use the eyecream just the same as night time. To controle my oil I've been using the Phylosophy Totalmatteness. I pat it into my skin until it's dry. The final step is a moisturizer I apply the dramatically different moisturizing gel and then my SPF moisturizer by MURAD. It's not shown because I only have a sample. It's the mattifying moisturizer with SPF 15. I live for this moisturizer.
This concludes my step by step skin routine. I hope you guys enjoyed this. Check out my social networks:
