Hey all~ I've been getting some questions lately about my skincare routine, so here the basic anti-aging skincare routine I use to minimize wrinkles, fine lines, and keep my skin looking mostly clear ^_^ Better yet, it's cheap! No luxury brands here.
I mainly focus on keeping my skin as moisturized as possible, since I've noticed that when my skin is moisturized my skin doesn't look as old. In my teens, my skin used to be oily but now it's very dry, along with fun hormonal acne.
HERE'S WHAT I USE/
Paula's Choice Clear Pore Normalizing Cleanser
$11.00, paulaschoice.com (I bought this on sale for $8.00)↓
This is a very gentle cleanser meant to control acne, but I find that it helps cleanse my skin without drying it out. It doesn't really foam up though which I really don't like.
Vitamin E Oil From Trader Joe's
$5.00+ (I bought it for this much, but it depends on the store, may be more)↓
This is actually an oil blend of soybean oil, coconut oil, and vitamin E. UBER CHEAP and really great for moisturizing your skin. The oil is very lightweight, absorbs quickly, and doesn't break me out. I like to spread this all over my skin, allow it to sink in for a few minutes, then dab off the excess.
Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum With Retinol↓
$28.00 at PaulasChoice.com
As far as serums go, this is one of the cheapest. It's meant to fight signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. I find that this "fills out" fine lines temporarily so I like to place this in any areas where I have fine lines. I don't put it all over my skin however because the vitamin E oil is enough for me.
Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream
Around $19.00, various online retailers↓
This is a moisturizer worth splurging on. It has a gel formula and spread easily across the skin, helping locking in the moisture. It cools my skin as well. It has a very strong fragrance though, which can be irritating for sensitive skin.
TONY MOLY Panda's Dream White Sleeping Pack
$12.00 at various online retailers↓
This is a simple sleeping pack that has a thick, lotion-like consistency. I use this at night so my skin is extra moisturized while I sleep. When I wake up I simply wash it off. I actually prefer the Lioele Waterdrop Sleeping Pack but I've been unable to find a reputable seller to buy from :( So this is my next favorite sleeping pack.
I didn't mention this because I really don't do this regularly, but I sometimes use an oatmeal exfoliator from Aveeno. It's around $5.00. If I remember to, I'll maybe use this once a week. I really haven't noticed any difference in my skin from using it though, so I doubt I'll use it more in the future.
I also remove my makeup with coconut oil. It removes everything! Plus it leaves your skin very moisturized...I bought a big jar of it for $4.00 6 months ago and I still have plenty left ^_^
So that's my skincare routine...what is your skincare routine like?
