Skincare has always been a bit of an enigma to me. In all honesty it took me a while to really understand that if you have oily skin you should be moisturizing it. For years I suffered with dry, flakey gross skin because I refused to give it the TLC it desperately needed.
It only took me about 21 years before I figured it out. Could have been worse.
My Current Clean Beauty Skincare Routine
My Skin type
I guess it is helpful to know my skin type in order to know whether or not this routine would work for you, now wouldn’t it?
My skin type is best described as combination/oily. My t-zone produces oil like it’s going out of style and yet somehow manages to be as dry as the Sahara desert.
If you would prefer to watch in video format, I have also filmed the routine:
Step 1: Wash Face
Only using water. I prefer to avoid a surfactant cleanser, I feel that this is sufficient to cleanse my skin and not strip off the oils.
Step 2: Facial Toner
I am currently using the Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner which helps add moisture into the skin. Plus it feels very refreshing!
Step 3: Moisturize
During the winter months I am using the Wildcraft Geranium Orange Blossom Face Cream－If you’re curious to learn more, I have a full review on this.
Step 4: SPF
I do not have an SPF in my rotation currently, as both my SPF treatments have expired and I have been slacking. But it is important and I highly recommend adding SPF into your skincare routine even throughout the winter months.
Step 1: Oil Cleanse
For my eyes I use a blend of Almond + Coconut oil (yes, I loathe coconut oil in skincare but it’s the only other oil I have on hand… and it works.) For the rest of my face I have been using the Muni Muni Slime Hydrating Cleanser－review will be live soon!
Step 2: Double Cleanse
To remove those oils from my skin I have been using the Drunk Elephant Pekee Bar. It is a mini that I received in the travel duo, for more information you can check out my full review on the Drunk Elephant set.
Step 3: Facial Toner
Again, I go in with the Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner to lock in moisture that I may have lost after washing.
Step 4: Serum
A tried and true love of mine is the Herbivore Lapis Oil (read the full review here.) I have also started using the Graydon Skincare Fullmoon serum which is proving to be a favourite as well－review on this one soon!
Step 5: Moisturizer
To seal in the hydration I like to follow up my serum with a moisturizer. I have fallen deeply in love with the Iremia Skincare Soothing Lotion (read for full review) which is great for sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Step 6: Eye Cream
I finish off with an eye cream mostly as a preventative measure. I am currently using the Schaf Eye Cream which is also full of great anti-aging ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides and Q10. A review will be coming shortly on this product.
Yes, my skincare routine is definitely more than I thought I would ever do to be entirely honest. However, my skin is looking and feeling the best is has in years－so I am certainly going to keep it up.
