Happy Monday, everyone! Although I am clearly a huge makeup junkie, I am super anal about making sure I keep myself on a strict skin care routine. This means no going tobed with makeup on, no forgetting to put on moisturizer, no “I’m too tired this morning to wash my face,” etc. I cannot emphasize enough how important taking care of your skin is, especially if you’re someone like me who loves to wear makeup. You will be living with the skin you’re in everyday for the rest of your life, so you need to take care of it! Today’s post consists of the 3 staple products I have been grabbing from my skin care collection, which happen to be all Dermalogica products, and why I think they’re so awesome.
(Note: I am only mentioning the cleanser, toner and moisturizer. After toning, I always apply a serum before moisturizing, as well as an eye cream after moisturizing. I switch up on serums and eye creams, so to make this post simple, I am only mentioning these three main products I tend to grab the most.)
I have been using this cleanser for just over a month now and I have really been loving the results. Since it is a gel cleanser, it works to help break down excess sebum built up on the skin without completely stripping the skin dry. This cleanser is perfect for anyone looking for a cleanser for normal-oily & sensitive skin type. Dermalogica products are made without artificial fragrances and colors, so don’t you worry about any of these products being too harsh! Not only that, but this cleanser also contains lavender extract to help soothe the skin! Unfortunately, I get hormonal break outs here and there throughout the month- but since I’ve been using this cleanser I’ve noticed a huge difference in the severity and number of breakouts I get now.
After cleansing the skin, it’s super important to balance out the pH levels of your skin. Thaatttt’s where the toner comes in. I’ve been using the Dermalogica Multi Active Toner. Just two or three sprays across my face and I’m good to go! This is super refreshing on the skin and it makes your skin feel hydrated and smooth. Toners also help the skin prep for moisture intake, so it’s best to use this right before you use a serum or moisturizer!
I have already raved about this product in my March Favorites blog post, so I won’t go in depth about it again on this one! If you’d like to read my take on this AMAZING moisturizer, click here. This is my all time favorite moisturizer, and I don’t think I’ll ever find another one that I love as much as I do this one. I was struggling to find a moisturizer that wasn’t too heavy on my normal-oily skin type. I tried everything! But this moisturizer is the perfect fit for me. I highly recommend this to anyone with normal-oily skin.
