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

Wow you have a speedy AM routine @sprocketta! you’ve got the right idea, I used to neeeever wear sunscreen. I do now but oh the years I didn’t😭

 

Hope the Farmacy eye cream works out for you!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I am about to try the eye cream too, just pulled it out this am🤞🏻

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Wearing sunscreen everyday is a great thing to do @sprocketta! 😃 It’s a really good idea to slowly introduce new products, especially acids, into your routine. Maybe dilute The Ordinary peel the first few times you use it by applying the peel solution to a damp cotton round/square pad and then applying to your skin. If I’m nervous about peels, I’ll patch test on my arm and if nothing, I’ll patch test on part of my neck to see how my skin responds before I use it on my face. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Couldn't agree to take it slow and patch test  more, @itsfi!

 

Let us know if you end up using the peel, @sprocketta!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Heh. I just wing it on and hope for the best @itsfi 😆

Yours is the smarter, safer idea to start a new product.

 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Mine is honed from waaaaay too many occasions of a product not getting along with my skin! 😔 It takes forever to get my skin looking and feeling better when that happens @l8totheparty

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@sprocketta I've seen others say or didn't give them milia, I hope it doesn't for you!! 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@l8totheparty  My routine doesn’t change all that much on a daily/weekly basis, which is why I keep it in spreadsheet form. But I do still have some skincare items on deck for testing... maybe I’ll share those in this thread, once I rotate them into my routine. 

 

Meanwhile, here’s my latest skincare routine list. Only thing missing is my midday/afternoon post-workout routine, because I haven’t started it up again yet. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

😍🤩😍 skincare spreadsheets! Yes, the scientist in me adores this, @WinglessOne!! So impressive!!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks @haleyvvvv ! Smiley Happy

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I love your spreadsheet @WinglessOne - I need to get working on one. On a side note, I didn’t realize Bubblewrap is a lip product. Guess I haven’t paid much attention, but now I’m curious about it.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks @eshoe ! Once you have a skincare spreadsheet, it’s kinda fun to look at old versions of it to see how much your routine has changed and what you’ve learned about your skin along the way. My spreadsheet is part of a workbook that includes tabs of ingredients my skin seems to love or hate. Kind of an ingredients cross reference. It’s labor intensive but helpful in the long run. 

 

Glossier calls Bubblewrap an “eye and lip plumping cream.” I bought it to use only on my lips. It’s not moisturizing enough on its own for me, but it does contain hyaluronic acid, peptides, and antioxidants so I treat it like a lip serum. For the hell of it, I did try it once under my eyes and won’t do that again: it made my eyes itchy. It doesn’t irritate my lips at all, though. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

That’s a great layout you have, separating out the individual yay/nay ingredients. That’s would be especially helpful for someone with sensitive skin. 

 

Hmmm well the Bubblewrap sounds interesting enough, @WinglessOne might have to give it a whirl!

 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

This is awesome and inspiring! Future project for me! 😍 love seeing your products and uses/routine!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks @SAlyFitz ! Smiley Happy

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

How organized are you?? This is great @WinglessOne 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks @lmaster ! Heh, if only I was this organized about everything else... Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne how does the Paula's Choice anti-redness exfoliant compare to the gel? I use the former but I use it on cotton pads and I feel like I'm wasting a bit of product.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@sprocketta  I just use my hands to apply the Clear Anti-Redness exfoliant. I can better control how much I apply that way. The gel exfoliant has the same consistency as the AHA gel, so it’s easier to use as a spot treatment. I think the gel BHA would work just as well as the Clear liquid BHA, since they both contain some skin soothing ingredients. I just prefer the liquid for my whole face; I don’t like having the gel texture all over my face. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne, I always love seeing your skincare spreadsheet. 💗 Was wondering about the Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Gel - is that the same formulation as her 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant? 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks @itsfi !  Do you mean the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant vs. the gel version? They share lots of ingredients, but the gel contains a couple more extracts: grape seed, willow herb, and bisabolol. 

 

Both the 2% BHA gel and the Clear Anti-Redness 2% BHA contain more skin soothing ingredients than the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid, which is why I don’t use the liquid—though it’s probably the most popular of Paula’s BHA exfoliants. Smiley Happy
