Ultimate Guide on How to Put Together A Skincare Routine!

how-to-put-together-a-skincare-routine

I know that going into the skincare isle can be seriously daunting. I’ve been known to spend hours – yes HOURS roaming up and down, reading hundreds of labels to come out with the same products I’ve already been reluctantly using because I just didn’t know what to get, what would be best for my skin type and concern and not to mention how and when to apply all of these products! From serums to oils, essences to toners, cream vs lotion, I was lost.

While today I am a self proclaimed skincare expert  – thank you very much 😉 and I have an excellent routine that I love and that works…for me.  As a blogger, and a human with changing skin needs and concerns, I do switch up products from time to time, but as for the ‘routine’, I have that locked in place.

My reason for creating this post is mainly thanks to my family and friends. When ever we get together at least one person always asks me about skincare and what they should be using etc. While this is more of a personal thing, dependent on your needs, it’s the routine itself that most people seem to fall short.

Fight Oily Skin With Moisture!

skincare-for-oily-skin

As someone with oily skin, it is very easy for me to get caught up in all of the wonderful products out there that help me keep my oil in check. While I am oh so thankful for these products as they truly do wonders for my skin, my oily skin can still get dehydrated. In fact, it is quite common for us oily girls to have dehydrated skin as we use harsher, sometimes drying skincare to help fight off the oil and those pesky little pimples that go hand in hand with having oily skin. Kind of a catch 22; dehydrated, oily skin…And it took me a while to really understand and realize how important it was to truly have a balanced skincare routine. Continue reading
