My Face Care Routine

Tuesday, February 19, 2013


Do you ever wake up in the morning and think this is the face I get to work with? There are many occasions this has happened and some of them happen around that "girly time" while other times happen after too many glasses of Chardonnay. I get a lot of people who ask me how my skin got so clear and honestly a lot of it is contributed to good genes.

I do take a lot of care of my skin though and try to always use make-up and cleaning products that are non-pore clogging. I think the biggest NO NO that I commit is not always drinking enough water and sometimes I fall asleep with my face on. The biggest sin is that second one so I always suggest buying those makeup wipes, ones from The Dollar Tree work great, and wipe your face off every night. Even for guys that don't wear make-up like us ladies it is best practice to use these wipes too because our everyday environment can really wreck our skin. I plan to share with you my skin cleaning routine and please know that this won't work for everyone but I want to share with you if it can help.

First Step: Ivory Soap (Wash your face) $1.00 for three bars!

I remember seeing my friend in high school who used to have pretty bad acne show up to school one week with almost completely clear skin. I asked him "Man, you look great! What have you been using for your skin?" He told me after a lot of different medicines he just started using his mom's Ivory Soap. I've been using it ever since he said that and I can truly say it cleans extremely well and doesn't clog my pores.

Step 2: Witch Hazel (Toner) $2.99 for a whole bottle!

My mom told me she read an article when I was around thirteen talking about what makeup/skincare secrets models use and this was one of them. After washing your face use a cotton ball to throughly go back over your face/neck to get off any excess makeup/dirt/oil etc..

Step 3: Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque 3 oz. (Use 2-3 x's a week) Sally Beauty Supply $3.69

I am a true Sally Beauty Supply shopper and I loved finding this product. I have used it since high school and it hasn't let me down since and I use it at night on a few trouble spots. It will probably freak your significant other out to see you with a green face but it will be worth beautiful skin later.

Step 4: St. Ives Microdermabrasion (I use this once or 2x's a week on opposite days I use the masque above) $5.00 or so at your local CVS or Walgreens

I bought this a few years ago and the packaging has changed but the product is still great. Let me know how this skin routine works out for you!
