BEAUTY FAVES: face edition

BEAUTY FAVES: face edition

For my skincare routine I like to keep things pretty simple and as natural as possible. I look for things that have minimal ingredients and are free of parabens and other harmful ingredients. My skin is very sensitive and prone to acne and redness so I like to promote and maintain clear healthy skin.

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser

This cleanser is fragrance-free, gentle, and effectively removes makeup and oil, leaving skin soft. It is infused with a powerful botanical antioxidant blend that works to help block damaging free radicals. It helps calm redness and is pH-balanced to maintain the natural acidity of the skin. I love this cleanser because it removes my makeup and doesn't dry out my skin.

Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes

Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes gently remove dirt, sweat and makeup. They are oil-free, non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic. I like to put a little bit of coconut oil on the wipe to really remove all my makeup before washing my face.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray 

This facial spray is formulated with herbal extracts and rosewater for dehydrated skin. Aloe and rosewater help fight acne, calm redness, and are anti-bacterial. It is safe for all skin types, is gentle, and non-irritating. I spray this on my face after cleansing followed by a moisturizer. I love how light, refreshing, and moisturizing this spray is. I'd say its my favorite part of my skincare routine!

Cetaphil RestoraDerm Moisturizer

This moisturizer soothes, replenishes and protects very dry and eczema-prone skin for long-lasting relief. I have very dry skin and this is the only moisturizer that hydrates my skin and keeps it hydrated all day. I put this on before applying my makeup and it gives my foundation a smooth surface.

LUMAPRO-C Brightening Pigment Corrector 

The LUMAPRO-C clinically combats hyper-pigmentation by fading existing dark spots, age spots, and inhibiting future discoloration. This facial serum is ideal for anyone wanting a brighter complexion while improving overall skin radiance. The resurfacing peptide, DermalRX SRC enhances skin texture and fades pigmentation. I suffered from cystic acne and was left with scars and hyper-pigmentation so I got this serum to help heal those.

Tamanu Oil

Tamanu Seed Oil helps reduce acne, scars, cuts, abrasions, sores, rashes, and stretch marks. It is also known to have remarkable anti-neuralgic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties. I like to use this at night mixed in with coconut oil to help heal my acne scars and hyper-pigmentation. 

Coconut Oil

I use coconut oil for so many things because it has a ton of benefits. It has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties to fight acne or infections. It helps fight wrinkles and premature aging. I use it to remove makeup, to moisture my face and body, to shave, and I've even made body scrubs with it. Another thing I like to do is use it as an eye cream at night. The natural oil contains vitamins and minerals that stimulate lash growth, and trust me, I've noticed a difference in my lashes!
