summer skin


I want to make more of an effort to open up on a personal level so I’m sharing my daily skincare routine. I have struggled with my skin in the past and I’m finally happy and comfortable in my own skin. Yes, buying clothes makes me feel great but it’s also such a good feeling when you’re confident with how you look minus the clothes.

This summer I’m making it a goal to wear no makeup. The routine I’m sharing with you is one that I have used through out the winter and currently continuing into summer.


1st step: cleansing

If I’m wearing a foundation and/or eye makeup I always start with a makeup remover for my night routine. The one I’m using is called Green Clean by Farmacy. It’s like a balm to oil formula that you rub onto your dry skin. It’s so gentle you can apply it right onto your eyes to remove eye makeup. I usually apply onto my face and then hop in the shower to rinse off.

The second product I use to cleanse currently is the Enzyme Cleaner by Mario Badescu. It’s a gel cleanser and it makes my skin feel amazing. After starting this as my usual face wash, my skin has never been clearer. I highly recommend and it has a great price point.


2nd step: serum

My favorite serum is Vinopure by Caudalie. This product has helped my shrink my pores and clear my skin. I’m currently on my third bottle! I normally only apply this during my night routine.


3rd step: moisturizer

My favorite moisturizer to date is Tatcha’s Dewy Skin creme. Packed with vitamin C this moisturizer is so good for your skin plus it’s all natural! Ever since switching my skin care routine to all natural based pproducts, I’ve seen such an improvement in my skin. Every product I have purchased from Tatcha I have really loved so I can’t wait to try more.

Last but not least, it’s so important to moisturize under your eyes to prevent aging. My go too is Vasaline. So affordable and it’s super moisturizing. My most recent purchase for an eye creme has been the Farmacy Dew It all Total Eye Cream. I use it both day and night. It’s packed with vitamins and helps with aging and stress.


Sometimes in the morning I’ll add an extra step to my routine, especially when I’m going make up free. I store this product in the fridge and it’s so refreshing to apply in the morning. You’ll notice the difference in your skin instantly after applying. The brand is Glow Recipe and the product is Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free Moisturizer. This product is extremely lightweight, just like a juice. After I apply this in the morning and then I’ll layer a creme moisturizer.


My everyday beauty tip

Don’t forget the lips! It’s so important to care for your lips just like your skin. I used to ignore my lips and I’ve noticed now that I pay attention to them and moisturize (so key) that my lips look so much fuller!! I would avoid my lips in the past because and I was insecure with how they looked. Now that I give the same care and attention to them as I would my under eyes, I’ve become more comfortable in my own skin.
