Ever wonder how some people have faces that just glow and radiate? You might think it costs an arm and a leg, but actually, it doesn’t take more than a good routine and quality products.
Because I have combination sensitive dry and oily skin in the t-zone, I don’t need to tend to my skin as much as I should. There was a period when I used what I thought were quality products like Shiseido, but that just resulted in breakouts. So then I turned to plain soap, and although it made my skin dry as a desert, the breakouts disappeared. But I realized that I couldn’t do that all the time, so I started to research into simple, economical and quality skin products that I could put together as a daily routine.
Here’s my three-step secret to a flawless skin.
1. Scrub it clean
I start with a good cleansing with Olay Fresh Effects Bead Me Up Exfoliating Cleanser. This is really good people of all ages because it’s gentle enough on sensitive skin, but tough to get rid of the oil and grease. The micro-beads help to eliminate the black noses and really dig into the pores. The best part is that it doesn’t hurt even if it gets into your eyes.
2. Beauty sleep
Before going to sleep, I put on a layer of Nature Republic’s 92% Aloe Vera, which refreshes and rehydrates my skin from a day’s hard work. The best part is that the gel acts as a cooling soother and after it dries, it actually tightens your skin, leaving your face visibly smaller and brighter the next morning.
You can also use it for a ton of other uses, like mixing it with your hair conditioner to prevent split-ends, or act as a massager cream for the whole body.
Before applying any makeup, I make sure to smother on a layer of The Body Shop’s Honeymania Body Butter. It not only leaves the skin feeling and smelling like honey, it also makes the skin notably whiter and smoother. That’s because the ingredients is from handpicked honeycombs. Just be careful not to attract the queen bee.
If you thought the secret to perfect skin was complicated, hope this routine will prove you wrong.
