My Current Skincare Routine: AM & PM

As you know, my skincare routine changes almost every month and over the past few weeks I’ve been on a routine that has done wonders for my face. A couple of the products I’ve been using are newer to me, but they truly work and I’m super happy with my results. My newer products are from The Body Shop’s “Drops of Youth” line. I was introduced to this line about mid-January and have been using them day and night ever since.

A skincare routine for me consists of serums, moisturizers, eye creams, lip products and face wash. Since I have combination skin, it’s often difficult to find a balance between all of those products and find something that works for every part of my face. Luckily with the products I’m using now, my skin is looking and feeling amazing.

A routine that works for me tightens my pores, rids my blackheads, keeps my skin feeling hydrated, prevents breakouts and improves the texture (smoothness) all around. Enough of the chit chat though, below are the products I’m using and loving.

Morning Routine

Face Wash: Tatcha The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser

Serum: Alumier MD EverActive C&E Serum

Moisturizer: Drops of Youth, Youth Cream

Sunscreen: Coola Sun Silk Drops (SPF 30)

Evening Routine

Face Wash: Tatcha The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser

Serum: Drops of Youth, Youth Concentrate

Moisturizer: Drops of Youth, Youth Cream

Eye Cream: Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

Lips: Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

None of the content in this post is sponsored however products were gifted to me a while back. Most of the skincare I use is gifted, and that’s only because I hate to waste what I receive! When I recommend products, I genuinely am using them and loving them. These are the ones that are on heavy rotation atm.

The Eye Cream That I Swear By

It wasn’t until I discovered Rodan + Fields that I started using eye cream, but boy am I happy that I did! A lot of people think that eye cream is only necessary for “aging” skin and only works as an “anti-aging” product but that is far from the truth. The eye cream that I swear by and use every single day not only works to reduce wrinkles and crow’s feet (which I do not yet have) but it also reduces puffiness and darkness underneath the eye. That’s exactly what I need as a student juggling work, full-time classes, blogging, YouTubing and a social life! Phewf!

I’ve been using the Rodan + Fields Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream for an entire year now and I’ve had dark circles or puffiness under my eyes probably 3 times out of the whole year (due to reasons besides fatigue). My under-eye areas are not a huge problem anymore and I definitely don’t feel the need to apply concealer all the time.

If you hold back from including eye cream in your skincare routine now, I guarantee it’ll be a problem area later on in life. Taking care of each part of your face is crucial at every stage of your life and in my opinion, as a 19 year old I feel like my skin is in its prime and I should be doing everything I can to keep it this way! Eye cream is just as important as moisturizing your face to prevent dehydration and future wrinkles.
