Skin Care Routine

I have tried a numerous amount of products, from drugstore to high end, and I can finally say I love my routine. The line I use is the:

Neutrogena Naturals 

I wash my face daily and nightly. This is important folks to prevent breakouts!!!

These products have been consistently awesome for my skin. There are three main reasons I love this line. 

1. No harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, phthalates!
2. Not tested on animals!!
3. It actually removes my waterproof makeup!

Step 1

 Product Description: "Completely cleans skin and removes makeup in one step without stripping skin's natural moisture. This Peruvian Tara seed bionutrient rich cleanser leaves skin soft and rinses clean. Developed for gentle eye area."

Sale Price: $6.49

This is HANDS DOWN my favorite face cleanser. It removes EVERYTHING, even waterproof mascara (and we all know I wear waterproof mascara to hold my eyelash curl). I wear a fair amount of makeup so I was surprised that it took off all my makeup with one to two pumps and water. The smell is a nice, fresh scent. This is an excellent product, and not expensive at all.

Step 2

Product Description: "Gently scrubs away impurities and dull, dead skin cells that can build up in pores to improve complexion for fresh, clear skin. Suitable for even acne prone skin. Gentle enough for daily use. Won't clog pores."

Sale Price: $6.49

Can you say best scrub I have ever used? Yes.. This scrub does not feel like sandpaper rubbing on your skin (I hate that feeling). It has a small and refined grain that leaves your skin soft and smooth. If I wanted to skip step 1 and just use this, I could. It makes my skin feel SO fresh, clean, and healthy looking, and my pores don't look clogged either. I will continue to buy this as long as they make it. 

Please Neutrogena, do NOT stop making the Naturals line.

Step 3

Product Description: "CLEAN & CLEAR® PERSA-GEL® 10 Acne Medication is a unique formula that goes to work immediately, releasing the medicine deep into the pores where pimples start. This maximum strength Benzoyl Peroxide acne medication is the same prescription formula recommended by doctors."

Sale Price: $6.49

I will use this maybe 3-4 times a week and I swear by this product. I apply a thin layer all over my face, as if you were moisturizing, and it clears my skin up and keeps other pimples from forming. It is a bit drying, but what acne product isnt? Using a benzoyl peroxide medication along with salicylic acid cleanser/scrub works the best for my skin to help clear and prevent cystic acne.

You can find all these products at drugstores near you.

Yay clear skin!
