Minimal Skin care Routine

My Minimal Skincare Routine
 

I was trying to use acids and exfoliators as a normal part of my routine and I did more damage than good. So, instead of giving a big lecture on what I did wrong, let’s go into what I did right.

Heal the skin with moisture and protection and most importantly love. 

 

Cleanser:

Dermalogica’s Special Cleansing Gel or the Ultra Calming Cleanser is my go-to. But, I also love the Refreshing Cleanser from Murad.

Exfoliation (weekly)

Dermalogica’s microfoliant is the BEST for all skin types and is gentle! This product has been my all-time favorite for 5 years. You can see visible results and you could use this anywhere with textured skin or clogged pores.

Protection:

I apply SPF before I apply my moisturizer. Why?

SPF has zinc which is a great ingredient for acne-prone skin and gets absorbed better! When I layer this product over my moisturizer it seems to rub off like a gommage.

I would apply my sunscreen after my moisturizer (waiting about 30 minutes) but it leads to greasy skin and extremely sensitized skin.

Moisturizer:

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial moisturizer will always be my favorite. As I get old, I see my skin lacking hydration and moisture. So, I might add hyaluronic acid once in a while to give it an extra boost.
