My Skincare Routine : Dry, Combination, Acne Prone, Sensitive Skin

Open ME 'n WATCH in HD!
Products I'm wearing are listed below πŸ™‚

UPDATE: I no longer use the Glam Glow Mask... too many irritants... I was fond of the smoothness that came from the bark exfoliators... because exfoliating and that feeling is addicting! LOL I've gotten over that hump... ya not good for sensitive skin :/

HEY FOLKS!! SO here is my skin routine video. It is the routine that is working for me and has got my skin looking clear and radiant as it ever has in about 10 years LOL. But really it has. I'm extremely happy with it, but that will more than likely not stop me from trying other things that I learn about skin care to hopefully further better my routine even more πŸ™‚ I know this is not for everyone, but if I can help anyone with my skin type or with skin issues at all that would make me super happy πŸ™‚

I had meant to say in the video that I had transitioned from a .05% Tretinoin cream called Refissa to a .1% tretinoin, both of which were by Obagi Medical. The one I currently am using is a .1% Adapalene and 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, EpiDuo πŸ™‚

Night Time Routine:
* Paula's Choice Earth Sourced Gel Cleanser ( Wash face once to remove make and one more time to clean the skin after the makeup is off)
* Pat a tiny amount of Resist Antioxidant Serum followed by Olay Regenerist Serum Fragrance Free around the eyes
* Epiduo Gel - I apply about a nickel size amount, or enough to cover my entire face, excluding the eye area.
* Paula's Choice Resist Antioxidant Serum I mix this with two drops of 100% Organic Grapeseed Oil, 100% Organic Safflower Oil (loaded with hyaluronic acid which traps moisture in the skin), Tarte's Maracuja Oil, and Josie Maran's 100% Argan Oil
* After Serum I apply Paula's Choice Earth Sourced Moisturizer
* After my entire routine I apply a good size glob of Clinique's Moisture Surge Overnight mask

Daytime Routine:
* Cleanse Face with Paula's Choice Earth Sourced Gel Cleanser
* Apply Paula's Choice 2% Salicylic Acid BHA exfoliating liquid, or the Clear Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution, Same thing πŸ™‚
* Pat a tiny amount of Resist Antioxidant Serum followed by Olay Regenerist Serum Fragrance Free around the eyes
* Try using the toner on a 100% cotton round, ball, or pad πŸ™‚
* After Toning I apply Paula's Choice 2% Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Lotion
* Next, I apply Paula's Choice Resist Antioxidant Serum with two or three drops of Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil
* After Serum, I apply my moisturizer which is Either the Josie Maran Perfect and Protect Daily Moisturizer SPF 40, or the Josie Maran Broad Spectrum SPF 40 moisturizing lotion, Same product but one is tinted.
* On Days that I will be outside, I will also apply a nice size glob of Banana Boat's Natural Reflect SPF 50 lotion, the Baby formula

Specialty Things:
* Every 2-3 Days I will use my clarisonic at night, it has a sensitive brush head on it.
* Maybe once every other week or when my skin if being ornery or lacklustre I will apply the Glam Glow mask by Hollywood California, the white packaged one.
* I also like to use the Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Carbon Mask for breakouts or even possible breakouts LOL and for a little added moisture I will use Paula's Choice Skin Recovery Mask, and load it on, then hold my face over a facial steamer for about 10 minutes or so
* I enjoy using LED Red light panels as well... its like the sun on your face but Oh so much better
