Let’s talk skincare products sista! I have been asked time and time again about my skincare routine, products I use, and what I recommend for others. Here are 5 of my favorite skincare products that are tried and true, and have been absolute game changers for myself!
The name of this baby is so fitting as it truly is a cure for so many! I love how soft this stuff is on your skin and unlike so many other exfoliators, it isn’t abrasive when it does the job. Cure doesn’t feel harsh and my skin isn’t left feeling super dry after it’s used, one reason why it’s one of my favorite skincare products! I use it 1-2 times weekly on dry skin, massaging it into my skin in circular motions. I follow up by rinsing with water or wiping my skin with a damp/wet washcloth. When I say this product is a must have for my skin, I mean it – get yourself some sista!
If you know me and have been watching me for some time now, you know how much I stress the importance of protecting your skin. Sunshine is beautiful but it can also be harmful and have lasting damage to our skin! Prevention+ by IMAGE skincare has got to be one of my favorite skincare products for sure. I have tried so many sunscreens in my day and one thing I cannot stand is the smell so many of them carry. You know how mineral sunscreens can be so white and smelly? That isn’t this one! It contains Zinc, cleaner ingredients than most other sunscreens, and it’s more of a matte finish – even my hubby likes it (he won’t admit it but at least he wears it!). Take care of your skin sista – you’ll thank me in the long run!
A couple of my favorite skincare products are by The Ordinary and this is one I just HAD to share! This at-home chemical peel is so awesome for the working woman or busy mom who just don’t have the time or resources to head to an esthetician regularly. Your kids and significant other might ask why you look the way you do after but it truly wakes up your skin. This baby is a pH balanced solution used to deeply exfoliate the surface level of skin, improve uneven texture, clear your pores, and more! I absolutely love it; I’ve used it for a long time now and every time I use it, I remember why I keep using it. This may be one of my favorite skincare products, but make sure not to use it too often – once a week is plenty and be sure to test it on an area of skin first!
If you REALLY know me, you’ve heard me talk about Seint’s Creme (formerly known as Milk moisturizer) to no end. I truly cannot stress enough how good this stuff is and the fact that it’s great for just about any skin type just makes it that much better! My skin has never looked better after using this golden creme! It’s best used on dry, clean skin and a little trick I like to use is at night, after applying my creme, I go over it with a little bit of Vaseline or Aquaphor in those super dry spots to really hydrate them. You need this creme, even if you don’t think you do – haha it’s THAT good girlfriend!
I use this serum along with a Vitamin C serum prescribed by my dermatologist and I feel like my skin looks so rejuvenated and happy when I wake up! The name is fitting as I don’t want to look like I’m aging (does anyone?) and the way my skin feels using this is just incredible. It’s meant to be used twice a day and it targets fine lines/wrinkles while re-hydrating your skin. One of the best parts about the Needle-less Serum is that it doesn’t leave you feeling oily or greasy like other serums can! It’s currently DRMTLGY’s best selling product and I can honestly say they truly outdid themselves with this one – it’s so good sista!
The biggest secret of all....WATER!
My most favorite skincare product of them all – WATER!! I can’t tell you how often we look to cremes, serums, face masques, etc. but we forget just how beneficial drinking water is for us. Our bodies need it and the biggest tip I can share here is to DRINK MORE WATER! One of the best ways to up my water intake I’ve found for myself is by carrying a water bottle or tumbler everywhere I go. It’s truly one of the best investments you can make in yourself and if you can find one with the straw, even better! You’re more likely to drink water from a bottle with a straw than from one you have to uncap – click this link to find some amazing ones by SimpleModern and find the perfect water bottle for you!
