Skincare has never really been a topic that I blogged about here on the blog. To be 100% honest, I never really cared about skincare until the beginning of this year and I really have learned a lot about preventative products and skincare that just adds such a glow to your everyday look. Below you can find my top 5 favorite current products that I have been using daily to keep my skin hydrated and fresh.
My definite top favorite skin product at the moment is oil. Personally, I never thought putting an oil all over your face would benefit your skin but honestly, it does. The hydration your skin has after you wake up is incredible. Darphin makes my favorite oils as (1) hydrate (2) smell amazing (3) look pretty. I also brought just my oil on my last flight from Japan to LA and applied before flying and my face was so hydrated and fresh upon landing.
REFLEKT FACIAL CLEANSING SCRUB
Let’s move on to a no fuss easy product for anybody who loves a one-step skincare routine. Before 2017, I was never a huge fan of skincare as I really didn’t understand the benefits + I had decent skin. Reflekt was a product I was introduced to in the middle of 2016 that I have been using like crazy. I love how gentle the product is as a daily cleanser but it also has some exfoliating properties within. Let’s not also forget the color…
DARPHIN EYE CREAM
Another product I really never saw myself using until I realllllyyyy needed too. Well, you can now catch my at 2am with creamy under eyes and some Netflix show on my laptop. I want you all to have the mindset of “preventative skincare” because this is really what made me start using more skincare. It is a lot easier to prevent wrinkles and dark circles compared to getting rid of them in the future. Even if you don’t have dark circles (like myself, thank the lord), I still suggest using an eye cream!
KATE SOMERVILLE – EXFOLIKATE
My obsession with this product is unreal and I really think you should give this a go if you are new to the Kate Somerville skincare line. The base of the product is a dark forest green with tiny micro beads to exfoliate the skin. The smell is what I find really captivating and also mimics Matcha or some form of green tea. I tend to use this product maybe twice a week at night before my oil and moisturizer to scrub off all those gross dead skin cells.
SKII MID-DAY MIRACLE ESSENCE
Last but not least, the easiest product you will ever use. I learned so much about SKII on a recent trip to Japan with the brand and Chriselle Lim. Pitera is the main ingredient in this product and the benefits are amazing. A simple all-over spritz of this spray is always added to my skin when I get out of the shower at night. Pitera is great for de-oxidizing the skin and preventing discoloration / wrinkles over time.
