I can't stress how important it is to attend to your skin care. Being a vlogger, I'm 'on cam' almost everyday--filming vlogs, makeup tutorials, and so much more. I appear with and without makeup, too! It is really important to have a skin care regimen to keep skin problems at bay. Today I am sharing with you my TOP 5 Skin Essentials.
#1 Makeup Remover
It is imperative that you use makeup remover to thoroughly remove every single bit of makeup off your face. I know other people who only use water or goes straight to their face cleanser--and I firmly believe that this is not the way to go. I love oil based makeup removers especially for removing waterproof makeup.
#2 Gentle Skin Cleanser (i.e. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser)
Cleansing your skin is a MUST. This process helps remove oil and dirt build-up throughout the day. There are thousands of cleansers out in the market, but the gentlest one I've tried is the one from Cetaphil. I love how it thoroughly cleanses my skin without being too drying. I've been using this since time immemorial and it still remains to be one of my favorite cleansers ever!
#3 Moisturize (i.e. Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion)
Bring back moisture on your skin! Not only does moisturizers prevent premature aging, it also makes your skin plump! Moisturizing, even if you have oily skin type, is a must! I have combination skin, and I love using the Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion on my face and my body! I just use a pea-size amount on my face as a little goes a long way!
#4 Eye Cream
When you hit 20 y/o, you gotta start investing on eye cream. You will thank yourself in 50 years!!! Eye cream is my MUST-NOT-SKIP skin care favorite. Dab this baby underneath your eyes and even on the lids every single night without fail and you won't be saying hello to premature wrinkles any time soon.
#5 Protect (i.e. DayLong Gel with SPF50+)
One of the most important steps--sun protection. Harmful UVA and UVB rays can and will damage your skin without the proper armor. The sun AGES and BURNS the skin. I see to it that I use sunscreen on my face and my body before I go out on a hot sunny day (and even on fair days!) The Daylong Gel with SPF50+ is perfect to use before makeup because it is not too heavy on the skin. The skin is able to drink it up right away, and you'll be left with nothing but protected skin!
That's it for my post for today, loves. Let me know in the comments if you do all this skin care steps! Thanks so much for dropping by!
