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

How is the Farmacy Dew it All, @lmaster? I have it on a very long list of eye creams to try (it takes so long to get through eye creams!)

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I love that it has a greenish color to it, and helps hide dark color under the eyes @haleyvvvv no complaints, but I tend to lean more twordsFARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

That's so useful to know about the dark circles! Thanks @lmaster!!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Ooh, I love the WANDER BEAUTY - Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks! I was gifted a pair once by @faeriegirl . They are on my list to buy in the future.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@l8totheparty great eye masks, and so fun to wear!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

They are very pretty! The gold is just so lux! @averylayne @l8totheparty 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Great thread @l8totheparty. I love seeing what people do with their skincare. My routine is pretty much always the same as it works really well for me

In the AM, all I do is sunscreen. I can never make myself do anything else in the morning. I have tried and failed a lot, so I accept it and I'm really good about the sunscreen. I love this stuff. It's Missha All Around Safe Block Sebum Zero Sun Ex spf 50+. I love it because it's for oily skin and water-resistant which is necessary as I sweat a lot (ugh). Of course I got the recommendation on BIC.
 
PM I start by washing my face in the shower with Paula's Choice Clear Pore Normalizing Cleanser and the Clinique sonic brush. Out of the shower I follow with PC Clear Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution (2% bha). Then PC 8% aha gel. Then the Farmacy Very Cherry Bright Vitamin C Serum. I finish with OLEHENRIKSEN - C-Rush™ Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer The only thing that varies is I use the Clinique Clinical Clearing Gel if I have a pimple. If I stick to my routine, i very rarely very them.
 
I do have THE ORDINARY - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution but I haven't used it yet because I'm nervous about putting something that strong on my face. Eventually I'll get over that hangup and try it.
 
I'm also trying the FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry at the moment recommended by @lmaster. Most eye creams give me millia so I hope this one doesn't.
 
Sorry for the novel. I can't figure out using the spoiler function on my phone...AM, yup, that's all I doAM, yup, that's all I do

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I just ran out of my banana bright cream from OleHenricksen (I’ve been using it daily)

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@2manyperfumes I just started using the banana bright eye, and so far really liking it!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I love it @averylayne ❤️ Very gentle but it has brightened my under eye area after using it regularly for a while.  Loreal with the ceramides and multi peptides is my more affordable option when I run out and I switch them up.  When I can I get the banana bright and when I can’t the other.  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I need to remember to wear sunscreen in the winter as well if I'm leaving my house. Thanks for the reminder! 

@sprocketta 

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
