let’s talk skin care! Lately, I’ve been experimenting with my skin care a bit. I have oily skin that requires the perfect mix of cleansing, toning, exfoliation, and moisturizing. I have some products I’ve been using for years, some newer items, and a list of skincare craves I’m currently lusting over. In preparation for summer I’ve been wanting to spice things up a bit and branch outside of my usual buys!
Today, I’m teamed up with the luxury fashion and beauty community Farfetch. I’ll be giving you a sneak peek into my current skin care routine and be sharing my current wish list of summer beauty craves from Farfetch.
I’m excited about this post because it was exciting to learn about new skin care products. I also love learning the beauty routines of other women and I hope you enjoy a peek into my skin care routine. Sneak Peeks are a great way to learn new products and techniques. It’s like being offered the possibility of meeting your next skin care crush or love.
Let’s get started. I follow a strict three-step routine but I alternate weekly with exfoliation. Every other week my skin care routine becomes a four-step routine. Exfoliation is key for my skin care routine because my oily skin tends to buildup quickly. I typically start each week with an exfoliation treatment to ensure my skin is ready to face the world.
Once or twice weekly I use a toner to keep my skin refreshed, hydrated, and buildup free. Moisturizer is tricky due to my oily skin. I typically spot hydrate using a lightweight product across my forehead and cheeks. I often alternate with a pore minimizing product because it helps with excessive oil without over drying. I use a creamier product to hydrate my eye area.
Since I’ve been wanting to spice up my skin care routine I’ve created a wish list of some items that caught my eye. I’m in search of products that can multi-treat some of my problem areas. I’m especially interested in quality ingredients that will help with dullness, excessive oil, and enlarged pores.
One of the problems oily skin brings is enlarged pores (say eww with me). I also find that my skin doesn’t seem to renew as fast as I think it should. I like my skin to look refreshed and clear of buildup (another oily skin issue). so I’m looking for products that will promote cell turnover gently. I discovered the below items and was instantly intrigued.
My skin care wish list includes the essentials and some skin care treats that are sure to indulge. Right now I’m craving these beauties. Enjoy!
What skin care products do you use? I would love to hear.
