Aspiring to be the best fashion and lifestyle blogger I can be, it gets me thinking about the obsession that started the dream.
That obsession was finding the best skincare.
From a girl who had perfect skin until the age of 16, it seemed like the world had ended when the skin turned not so perfect. Now, at 22, after watching many YouTube videos and reading several different blogs over the years, I have learned a few things that have helped keep my skin as clear and happy as possible.
Skincare is essential. No matter who you are or how old you are it is never too early or too late to take care of the only skin you get. I personally like to invest in my skincare. I have learned that not just anything will do. And I will do what it takes to keep my skin as healthy and happy as I can for as long as possible.
My skin is far from perfect, but it is healthy, happy, bright, and sometimes clear. And recently I have been loving all things Caudalie. While, I still refuse to stray from my Purity Cleanser, the rest of my skincare involves items from Caudalie, a French brand that not only makes my skin glow but makes me feel luxurious and a little Parisian.
So let me take you through my nighttime skincare process.
If I am wearing makeup, I use my purity one-step cleansing cloths to get as much makeup off my face as possible. These cleansing cloths are super gentle on the skin and leave your skin feeling clean and smooth.
Next, I take my Foreo Luna 2 for sensitive skin and use my Purity Cleanser to actually clean my skin and make sure that all the dirt and oil are no longer on my skin. I have been using this combination for about a year now and it has really made a difference.
After cleansing my skin, I typically go in with the Caudalie Moisturizing Toner on a cotton pad. A toner is every clear skin girl’s best kept secret.
Sometimes, we need a little refresh and that can include a face mask. There are three Caudalie face masks that I have fallen in love with. The Purifying Mask which gets rid of all the impurities in your skin for a more even texture, it essentially makes your skin feel buttery smooth. The Instant Detox Mask which is great if you feel like you have a lot of nastiness in your pores, and is super good at getting the gunk out. And The Glycolic Peel which is amazing, it honestly feels like you have new skin once you wash it off.
The last step of my skincare is moisturizer. Depending on how I feel I will either use the Overnight Renewal Cream or the Intense Moisture Rescue Cream. Both are amazing, if I feel like my skin is lacking and seems dull and boring then I usually reach for the Overnight Renewal Cream, but on a regular basis I tend to reach more for my Intense Moisture Rescue Cream (which smells amazing).
Then, it is lights out and time for bed. And do not worry, when I wake up and wash my face I never leave my apartment without using my Radiance Moisturizer which happens to have SPF 20. Always good to protect the skin at all times of the day, you never know when you will make it big in the fashion world and need that glowing and beautiful skin.
