Skincare Routine of the Day

This is a place to share your skincare routine of the day!  Whether it be daytime routine or nighttime routine, I know you have one.  From simple to complex, expensive to inexpensive products: show and tell! If you are anything like me, your skincare routine changes daily. Skincare isn't as showy as makeup, but it is the quiet work horse of our daily lives. 20200118_005115.jpg

 

You might want to include with your post: your skin type, skin concerns (& the weather where you are).

Sometimes if all you can do is your skincare, that is enough.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

 This was from my recent evening travel skincare routine which is all about nourishing and repairing skin in the evenings

11.17.2022 PM (trip).jpg

 

Spoiler

My nighttime skincare routine falls into one of two categories when I’m at home - either (1) quick, easy, to the point & gets the job done so I can get my other work done 😉, or (2) a more detailed approach to treating my skin while giving me some “me” time, where my skin care is my self-care. 

 

This was a PM routine I’ve was using while away for work that is a hybrid of both approaches to my nighttime skincare routine. It's a two-part routine - the first part is done immediately after I get back to my room at the end of the day and the latter part starts about 30-45 minutes before I call it a night. 

 

  • Double cleanse: first with DHC Cleansing Oil, an oil based cleanser that removes sunscreen, makeup, dirt, debris and anything else that my skin picks up throughout the day. This one is olive-oil based and thoroughly cleanses my skin without stripping it or making it feel tight or dry. I follow that up with Biossance Squalane + Amino Aloe Gentle Pore-Minimizing Cleanser 6.76 oz/ 200 mL - a soothing, hydrating and comforting gel cleanser. 
  • Lip scrub - Sara Happ The Lip Scrub Pumpkin Spice - her lip scrubs were my introduction to lip scrubs and I love how the granules provide a good exfoliation without being too rough on the skin. She's since repackaged some of her products and while I like the portability of the scrubs in the tube, it's the ones in the jar that I find to be more effective. This pumpkin spice flavor / scent is limited edition and perfect for the cooler weather.
  • L'Occitane Immortelle Reset Overnight Reset Oil-In Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL is a must-have for my skin in the cooler seasons. It packs a punch in terms of hydrating and moisturizing my skin but is light enough that it is not too heavy or overwhelming when incorporating other products.
  • Dr Jart Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer - depending on how dry my skin is from the weather, travel or new environs, I might apply a couple of layers of this hydrating moisturizer. The beauty of this moisturizer is in its texture and formula - it comes out of the tube as a gel-creme formula but as it makes contact with the warmth of the skin, it transforms into a liquid-y, almost water-like essence/serum that is quickly and almost effortlessly absorbed by the skin. Sadly, this product has been discontinued and this is the last of my backups. Really wish they would bring this back. 
  • Lip balm - I forgot to pack my Laneige lip sleeping mask so I pulled out the HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA PhD Hybrid Lip Oil Hue  for some nighttime lip care.
 
The latter half of my evening routine is about keeping my skin moisturized throughout the night and involves a mask or face oil, or on some occasions, both. When I'm away from home, it usually involves both. This was my recent pairing. 

 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Oooh, that’s so nice! I love the double approach! @itsfi 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@itsfi I've had a few of the Biossance Mini Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Firming Oil minis and I like them for travel, too. Particularly if the hotel air system dries out my skin overnight.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Mini's are great for travel @curlychiquita💖 I just refill them from my full size when I start running low. Fortunately, I have a full size and various sample / mini sizes from last year's BF deals so I'm set. The Biossance rose oil is fantastic - my skin really likes it - absorbs smoothly and quickly. I had two people comment to me the morning after I used it that my skin looked soft and moisturized and bright. I honestly didn't think they were talking to me because with work travel, the best I can hope for is that my skin just stays the status quo - hotel HVAC is a mystery to me curlychiquita; the only thing consistent about it is that it'll somehow send my skin into some sort of frenzy after I get back home. Ha!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Lovely routine @sister13! The Korres black pine line is really great; my favorite range from that brand. Hard to go wrong with the MIssha essence - it's a classic! 💖

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks @itsfi  Agreed on the Korres! The scent is what gets me! I finally found the Missha essence at TJ Maxx, I’m too lazy to purchase from other retailers online, lol. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Lol @sister13. I miss the days when Target carried a few Missha products. For a while, TJ Maxx / Marshall’s was my source for the Korres Black Pine beauties! 😊 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

How do you like the Vegamour serum @sister13

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I have not noticed any major differences after recently finishing my Kerastase serum and starting this one, but I do like the consistency and it doesn’t make my hair greasy at all, and seems to soothe my scalp! @faeriegirl 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I went with a simple, effective, minimalist, morning skincare routine (and makeup too) during a recent work trip. 

SROTD - 11.7.2022 AM (trip).jpg

 

Skin Type:  Combination leaning dry 

Skin Concern(s):  Skin is very dehydrated, some dry patches, some dark spots and redness.

Weather / Setting:  Cold, brisk mornings and evenings. Inside heated room for most of the day.

 

1. Gently cleanse with Biossance Squalane + Amino Aloe Gentle Pore-Minimizing Cleanser 6.76 oz/ 200 mL 

 

2. I like to apply a vitamin C product right after cleansing in the mornings; my skin seems to respond well to this approach.  Biossance Mini Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Firming Oil. Let that absorb into the skin. 

 

3. Put some pep into those peepers and under eye area with SEPHORA COLLECTION Clean Eye Mask Caffeine - makes for a quick, lovely. little pamper sesh in the mornings. 

 

4. A  serum like fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL helps to add some extra hydration to the skin and works well as a primer before moisturizer. 

 

5. Moisturize skin by applying two thin, light  layers of Dr. Jart+ Water Drops Hydrating Moisturizer (discontinued), the first on its own, the second, mixed with another drop of the Biossance Squalane + Vitamim C Rose Firming Oil.

 

6. Apply two (2) layers of Saie Sunvisor Radiant Moisturizing Face Sunscreen SPF 35 for sun protection and a lovely glow.. 

 

7. HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA PhD Hybrid Lip Oil Hue for a lovely color, shine, and moisture to the lips. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Nice routine @itsfi! I need to try the Saie sunvisor.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thank you @faeriegirl! I have 3, maybe 4, sunscreens that are on constant rotation as far as my SPF goes and this Saie Sunvisor is one of them. It has a slight tint to it and some shimmer as well, so it makes for a nice and easy weekend sunscreen. Lately I've been wearing just this, concealer and a tinted lip oil or lip balm for "no-makeup" makeup days. I used it on a recent work trip and had folks coming up to me telling me my skin looked so moisturized and glowy or that I had a lovely healthy glow to my skin. I'll need to pick up another tube soon and am planning on picking up both the full size and the mini.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@itsfi ,

Off the subject, but I really love your l'ange comb!  I appreciate seeing your skin care routine!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@tsavorite, thank you, and thank you for making the recommendation for the comb.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Lovely routine! @itsfi I was just thinking about this thread! I need to get back into a a sound and consistent routine, I’ve been slacking and I’m starting to notice the ill  effects! 

I have that water drop somewhere too, don you love it?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@sister13, thank you. Love the Water Drops. it was the closest thing I found to this other Korean skincare product I received as a gift a while back and does an amazing job of infusing layers of hydration to my skin. So bummed they no longer make it. 🙁 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

It’s been a while since I posted a skincare routine. I did a peel tonight so am avoiding retinol in exchange for some gentle skin barrier protecting products.   This is the last of my Herbivore Orchid oil deluxe samples so I’ll have to actually buy some soon!  I love the fragrance!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Beautiful routine @heartsmyface! 😍 I had forgotten I have that DDG peel set: I should go look for it … 

 

Ooooh, I see a pretty Jill Stuart jar, but I’m not familiar with her skincare. 👀 What’s inside?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Hii! I have oily skin with blackheads, acne prone, acne scars and uneven texture skin.

 

I interchange with CeraVe Foaming Cleanser and The INKEY List Salicylic Acid Cleanser 5 oz/ 150 mL (twice a week) I double cleanse at nice with The INKEY List Oat Cleansing Balm 5 oz/ 150 mL fir makeup removal!

 

For my serums I use The INKEY List Niacinamide Oil Control Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL and The INKEY List Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL

 

I also use The INKEY List Beta Hydroxy Acid 1 oz/ 30 mL interchangeably with the SA cleanser.

 

I moisturize with The INKEY List Omega Water Cream Moisturizer 1.7 oz / 50 mL 

 

I protect with Neutrogena Clear Face SPF 50.

 

Is this a good routine? I was thinking that because I was using a water cream my skin is overproducing oil still from the lack of moisturization (not a word haha!)
