Updated Skincare Routine

Updated Skincare Routine

I hadn’t realized that I didn’t update my blog on my skincare routine in forever until I started writing this blog. I always love to try new products and update my routine accordingly. My skin is constantly changing depending on the time of year, the amount of work I have, the amount of stress I am under, my social life, etc. Basically, you can probably tell exactly what I am going through just by looking at my skin.

I feel like I use to have pretty good skin, aside from blackheads, until I went abroad my junior year of college. My skin bugged out and I got really bad acne and still have some scarring from it on my cheeks. Trying to hide it never worked for me. I have combination skin which means I either get really oily and try to use products to dry me out or I am too dry and “cakey” looking and over compensate with too much moisture. Something I just recently learned is that just because your skin is oily doesn’t mean you have oily skin. Sometimes your skin is too dry and naturally creates oil to overcompensate. If you take care of your skin correctly and keep a good balance of the two, you will see drastic changes.

The below products are ones I use everyday and have become obsessed with! I of course added some options of things that are in my cabinet, but I have never been more happy with how my skin looks! I’ve been receiving so many compliments saying that I am glowing and feel so confident in my own skin. My routine consists of different price points, for both that “Blonde on a Budget”, as well as the “Platinum Blonde”.
