We as women spend so much time and money on our faces. Makeup, face wash, moisturizer, toner, masks, etc. 85% of women apply an average of 16 skincare and cosmetic products every day from eye creams to moisturizers, foundations to brow products. That ends up being around $8 a day! That’s crazy to me, spending that much time and money every day! What I use everyday cost way less, are better for your skin, and your skin will thank you.
I use aloe vera gel as a moisturizer, it actually goes into your skin, unlike most moisturizers that only sit on the surface of your skin. Aloe vera goes deep and leaves my skin smooth all day long. It’s also amazing for after shaving to help decrease the chance of ingrown hairs. It’s good for every kind of skin ailment that you can think of like psoriasis, eczema, and acne. For a morning face pick me up keep it in the fridge plus keeps it thicker. Also drinking aloe vera juice is great for your skin and gut health.
I use doTerra’s essential skin collection invigorating scrub. It’s the perfect amount of biodegradable exfoliant to get my face nice and squeaky clean without being too abrasive. Plus it’s not drying for people like me who have super dry skin. The essential oils in them help keep my skin from getting acne breakouts and also help with my blackheads that always pop up on my nose.
I use doTerra’s essential skin collection pore reducing toner. This toner is amazing! I have half as many blackheads as I used to due to this toner.
My Daily Skin Routine:
My daily routine is to scrub my face with the invigorating scrub every night when I shower, when I get out I use some aloe vera. When I wake up in the morning I use the pore reducing toner and use aloe vera if I need a little more moisturizing in the morning. This keeps my skin moisturized and keeps it from breaking out almost ever. Anytime my face breaks out is when I am lazy and skip part of my routine. I don’t normally wear any makeup besides mascara every now and again so I am not helping with that. But this is the mascara I use and love!
I use this face mask by Earthyandy. Its amazing, dirt cheap, and super easy. If you buy the ingredients in bulk it’s cheaper and you will always have what you need on hand. What’s not to love! I don’t use a face mask every day but I normally do one at least once a month to give my face a little something extra. Here is a link to her site for the recipe.
This is the ingredients I personally use and have had good results from!
Tea Tree Essential Oil (aka Melaleuca)
