New Year, New Skin Care Routine ha! I don’t know about you but its like every couple week my skin is like yeah I’m gonna change it up on you so you need to figure out what I want. Kinda annoying + frustrating if you ask me ha! So for the past 4-5 months I’ve been researching like crazy + trying different products and I finally found a routine that is working!
I’m pretty sure I have the World’s most pickiest + weirdest skin. It is dry one hour of the day, oily the next, + combination the next. It likes products one day, not so much the next.
I have suffered from cystic acne for the last 10 years. The less products I put on my face and the cleaner they are seem to help a lot. Also what I eat has helped as well. I think most of my skin’s problems were from my hormones being all over the place + stress. Now that I am not as stressed, eating better, + taking my stop being crazy pills ha! My skin has improved so much! I do feel that with all those life changes + adding these products has really helped my skin look its best.
I wanted to do my new skin care routine before my beauty routine because I feel like good skin is the best canvas for the your makeup. When your skin looks good, your makeup applies + looks better. Otay enough of me going on + on ha!

✨ My Routine ✨
✨Step 1: Cleanse + Exfoliate ✨
I use Origins Checks and Balances™ Frothy Face Wash every morning + night. It really cleans out my pores + gets rid of all my make up. At first I didn’t really like it because it left my face feeling a little weird after I rinse it off but I now like it because my skin feels so clean after each wash! I have seen a big difference in my skin since using it, especially in my pores.
Then 3 times a week I use Wishful Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub. I’ve raved about this before + I love it just as much now too. It is super fine but really gets all the dead skin + stuff off your face. After I use it my skin feels so much softer + looks brighter because it got al the dull skin off my face. I really like it because as you use it you can feel the results of the dead skin being removed. A little goes a long way but on days where I want to really get a good exfoliation I’ll do it a couple times in a row.
✨ Step 2: Spot Treat ✨
Next I use Tula Go Away Acne Spot Treatment. I have used this product for YEARS now! It is the only thing that I found actually works for blemishes, especially the cystic acne I’ll get. It takes the pain away from them + heals them pretty quickly. I like that it is clear so I can apply it over my make up through out the day. I don’t put it directly on the blemish, I put it on a Q-tip then apply it to the problem area. I like that its a clean product as well + fairly priced. It does last me a long time even when I use it serval times a days for a weeks on end.
I use SUNDAY RILEY U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil about 3 times a week at night. On the nights that I use this, depending on the state of my face + blemishes I’ll either skip the spot treatment or put it on after I apply this face oil once it absorbs mostly into my face. It smells kinda funky, not gonna lie but I really like it and it works! A little goes a long way as well. This isn’t a clean product but I have to say it works and so far my face likes it so I’m just gonna go with it ha!
✨ Step 3: Under Eye Care ✨
Next I use Origins GinZing™ Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff. I use it twice a day, morning + night. I really like this product and have been using it for a while now. I get the smaller size because I like the applicator better than a jar of product. I’m not a fan of jar packaging lol. Anyway it really does refresh + brightens up under my eye area. I have genetic dark circles under my eyes [thank you Armenian genes ha!] so when I say I found a product to help brighten that area, it works ha!
The Tula Rose Glow & Get It Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm has been in my makeup routine for a couple of years now. I use this product to add a glow to my under eye area + brighten it up even more. I feel that this product cools + depuffs better than the Origins one but doesn’t hydrate as well. The two together are the perfect combination!
✨Step 4: Hydrate + Moisturize ✨
The LAWLESS Set The Stage Hydrating Primer Serum is an awesome product because it is a multipurpose product. I personally use it as a serum. It’s like a blanket full of clean + good + rich ingredients for your face. It goes on smoothly, absorbs quickly + truly works. I’ve used it for 6 months now and really feel that it is part of why my skin is doing so well.
I found that I have to use two different moisturizers. I use Origins Clear Improvement™ Pore Clearing Moisturizer with Salicylic Acid when my skin is having a moment + breaks out a lot. It’s thin so it doesn’t feel like I have a lot of product on my face + really does work as it keeps my breakout to a minimum or if I have a blemish it helps heal it fast. I’ll use this most of the week to make sure I’m keeping my skin in a good place. It’s a clean product with great ingredients for your skin!
I also will use the Origins as a spot treatment on my bigger blemishes and then use Caudalie Vinosource SOS Intense Hydration Moisturizer all over my face. Like I said above, sometimes my skin is dry + when that happens this moisturizer is awesome. It is so hydrating! I apply this to my skin at night because it is a little thick. My skins feels amazing in the morning when I wake up. I’ll use this a couple times a week to make sure my skin stays hydrated all the time. It’s a clean product with great ingredients for your skin!
And that is my skin care routine! I know it seems like a lot of products + a long routine but since I don’t use them every day it’s not so bad. Plus the routine works so thats all that mattes ha!
