I hope this day finds you in good health, feeling good and enjoying life! Today, in honor of the first day of school ( It actually wasn’t too bad this year 😛 ) I wanted to share my current skin care routine. Now, I must say, I have been really blessed with pretty good skin. Aside from the occasional blemish ( and pimples due to other womanly situations) I’ve never really had to do much to maintain clear skin. But with age ( Yes I know I’m not old by any means lol) my skin has gone through changes. Recently, my skin has changed from combination skin ( dry and oily) to more on the oily side. So, I’ve had to change-up my products.So… this is what I’m currently using.
Lets start with the products I use on a daily basis and I’ll list them in the order that I use them in:
Step One: Clean and Clear Makeup Dissolving Foaming Cleanser: Love this product. I use this in my evening shower routine. I particularly reach for this product when I wear a full face of makeup all day long. If I have a very basic face ( concealer, powder, eyeliner, mascara) I jump right into step two.
Step Two: Simple Cleansing Micellar Water: ( What is a Micellar Water? It is a skin care product that removes makeup and cleanses the skin, without the need for rinsing) I use this product in lieu of makeup removal wipes. I enjoy that it gets the majority of my makeup off, but I however am super particular about my skin so I always follow this with a cleanser
Step Three: Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash (pink grapefruit) This is my Holy Grail product! If they ever discontinue this product, I don’t know what I’ll do 🙂 I really like this product because of the microbeads in this formula. This helps eliminate blackheads ( which is one skin blemish I tend to get more often as of late) It smells fantastic! I truly feel my skin tingling while using this product. It doesn’t leave my face feeling overly dry, which I also love.
Step Four: Next, I like to moisturize with a product from a local business vendor ( my friend Vanessa) Oubel Lemongrass Body Butter.(This can be used all over the body) This is another Holy Grail product for me! My skin has never felt so smooth! Whenever I’m feeling stressed or my skin I just needs a boost, I like to use the Ginger Mousse Mask from this line to give my face some life!

What I love about these products, is that they are all easily accessible and cost-effective. I can purchase all of these products (with the exception of the Oubel products) at Wal-Mart or Shoppers Drug Mart ( similar store to a CVS or Rite Aid). All of these items are all priced 15 dollars and under! Check them out!
I try to do a Ginger Mousse Mask once per week and do the remaining steps daily! What’s your skin care regimen? Any products I should try to combat oily skin? Let me know!
