My Daily Skincare Routine

Happy Sunday! Ever since I started posting photos of myself online, one of my most asked questions is about the products I use to maintain my skin. About 3 years ago, I did a video on this but literally everything has changed since then and I thought I would share my current routine here on the blog. This skincare routine may be a bit intensive for some people but each product does something entirely different to the skin and all combining everything together is my perfect combo! I suggest watching the video below as it actually shares how I apply and use products + the benefits of each product and the order in which I apply them (Just essentially everything you need to know!)

01. Cleanser
This is the first step in my skincare routine and probably one of the most important. I use cleansing just to remove the day from my face. My favorite cleanser is the Clinique daily facial wash and I also really love the Cetaphil daily facial wash.

02. Exfoliator
Exfoliating for me is one of my favorite parts of the skincare process. I personally only do this about 2 times a week but I really love the way the Kate Sommerville ExoliKate works on my skin. Removing all that extra dead skin and getting a deeper cleanse every now and then is great for unclogging pores and making sure your skin is radiant and purified.

03. Toner
So I am not actually sure if the SKII facial essence is a toner, but I like to use it as one. This product is absolutely incredible at moisturizing the skin and un-oxidizing the skin. Pitera is one of the main ingredients in this product which is known for long term benefits for the skin if you apply daily.

04. Oil
Oil is definitely a bit newer to my skincare routine but I think it is my favorite part. I love knowing that something is sitting on my skin and working magic which I am sleeping. The Darphin oils are my favorite, especially the Chamomile and 8 Nectar Flower. Each of these oils are packed high concentrates of natural ingredients to tighten and add a youthful look to the skin. I also find they are super super hydrating.

05. Moisturizer
Last but not least, we can’t forget about moisturizer. I like to apply this over the oil to really lock the products in place. I also use a Darphin moisturizer called Hydraskin Light Gel-Cream. This product is super light but gets the moisturizing job done. I love using this in the morning as well because it leaves the skin a bit dewy throughout the day.

05. Masks
About 2 times a week I also like to apply masks. I personally really love clay masks for drawing out any impurities and also getting a deeper cleanse. Some of my favorites are the Kiehl’s Lava Mask, Farmacy Honey Potion and the Aesop Parsley Seed Mask.

    Hi Drew,
    You might like to try the moisturizer before the oil. A water based, gel moisturizer will struggle to get past the barrier of oil to replenish your skin. Water based products followed by oil work best from what I’ve heard.
