AM & PM Skin Care Routine

I have to first premise that I was SUPER unsure about using oils. I thought because I had oily skin it would make it worse and who would’ve thought that oils would help someone not breakout?! I was totally skeptical. BUT I decided to try it after hearing about it so many times on my favorite online morning show “The Morning Toast” along with several youtube videos (Sarah Therese, The Skinny Confidential) I watched! I started using oils about 3 weeks ago during my facial routine, and I have noticed such a difference. I have struggled with breakouts and an un-even skin tone for years, and have tried SO many different products with nothing working that great!  So here’s to using oils & loving them!

AM Routine:

  1. Rinse my face with plain water.
    • I typically do this to wake me up & it also helps refresh my face but it doesn’t strip the oils from my skin that have been soaking all night longggg!
    • Repeat part of nightly routine 🙂
  2. Derma Roller. I use this in upwards directions across my entire face. I will then use it in horizontal diagonal directions (but always going up). I heard someone say, “why massage your face downwards when you want young looking, not sagging skin?! Always massage up.”
  3. Collagen. I then use the Advanced Clinicals Collagen Serum. I pat this serum into my “problem areas” or the areas that are prone to fine lines. My forehead, in between my eyebrows, and under my eyes.
  4. Tea Tree Oil. I use this to spot treat any pimples.
    • I use very little! This bottle will last FOREVER!
  5. Frankincense + Lotion. Just like the Lavender I roll a small amount of oil into my hand then a pump of lotion.
    • I rub my palms together until oils mix and apply all over my face! I love the smell of lavender so this oil mixture is my favorite!
    • I haven’t found a great lotion yet so for now I am using up the last of Nourish Organic Face Lotion. This one seems a bit watery, so I am still on the lookout for a great all natural cream!

Apply Makeup and you are all set to go! 

 

PM Routine:

  1. Oil Cleanser. I wasn’t to keen on making my own (especially if I didn’t end up liking it, I didn’t want a ton of oils leftover) so I decided to go with one from Target! Fatco Cleasning Oil is super easy to use! I follow the exact directions on the back.
    • Oil in Palm. Massage all over face (including eyes to remove mascara). Use washcloth and hot water to steam it all into pores. Remove oil from skin with washcloth. 
  2. Derma Roller. I use this in upwards directions across my entire face. I will then use it in horizontal diagonal directions (but always going up). I heard someone say, “why massage your face downwards when you want young looking, not sagging skin?! Always massage up.”
    • *Derma Roller Note* I don’t typically use the derma roller if I have a breakout. I personally feel like rolling over a breakout would cause an even bigger irritation!
  3. Collagen. I then use the Advanced Clinicals Collagen Serum. I pat this serum into my “problem areas” or the areas that are prone to fine lines. My forehead, in between my eyebrows, and under my eyes.
  4. Tea Tree Oil. I use this to spot treat any pimples.
    • I use very little! This bottle will last FOREVER!
  5. Lavender Oil + Acure Marula Oil. Finally I apply a small amount of lavender oil into my palm and one pump of the Marula Oil.
    • I rub my palms together until oils mix and apply all over my face! I love the smell of lavender so this oil mixture is my favorite!

Then its off to bed!
