A PM skincare routine that will get you guaranteed results!
Something I never neglect is my skin. Maybe because my mother has endured several bouts of skin cancer or because I don’t wear foundation/base and I’m hyper aware of blemishes and discolorations– who knows? I just enjoy taking care of it. I want it to be soft, even, and healthy. I use several products that I have used for YEARS and some that I’ve only been using for the past few months. I will tell you that face serum is a MUST. You can buy it from Amazon or a drugstore if you aren’t comfortable making it yourself. I make my own face serum for literal pennies on the dollar compared to store brands. I’ll let you know how in a bit.
First– I use a face mask probably three to four nights a week. Tonight I’m using a bubble mask and a charcoal mask. I have combo skin and this really helps combat breakouts and keep it clear and fresh. I used ELF Bubble Mask and a dollar tree charcoal mask but I’ll link you to one in Amazon if you don’t like using DT brands.
I let that sit for a bit and then I take a HOT 15 minute shower to really open up my pores. I cleanse in the shower with a mild cleanser. Then I finish up with some cleansing water. It’s my favorite because it doesn’t leave a sticky film afterwards and I don’t have to rinse after applying!
Next I apply a face serum. You can buy some affordable ones on Amazon, but you can make your own for CHEAP! Here’s the one you can buy that I recommend:
Want to make your own?? Here’s what I use in my video:
- 2 oz glass dropper bottle (I bought mine for 3 bucks at a natural grocery store)
- Non GMO cold pressed organic avocado oil.
- Add 4 drops of lavender essential oil
- Add 4 drops of clary sage essential oil
- Add 4 drops of Rose Water concentrate
And that’s what I use. It smells AMAZING, it’s natural, and it’s cheaper than what’s sold in stores. All of those ingredients will last me probably a year if not a bit longer. SCORE, right??!!
After I put my serum on and enjoy the smells, I apply a SPF cream to my face. My favorite it Hawaiian Tropic SPF 30 face cream. Smells great, it’s light, and the SPF is what I need to protect my skin!
My last step before turning in for the night is putting castor oil on my eyelashes. You can rub it all over your face if you want— it’s an amazing oil!!!! I dip a mascara wand in the bottle and apply. It grows those bad boys to great lengths! Use it to thicken you eyebrows, too!!! You can buy castor oil just about anywhere. Make sure it’s hexane free, cold pressed and organic. There tends to be a lot of additives in oils lately. Its consistency should be like honey.
And that’s it! I wake up smooth, fresh, and skin feeling (and looking!!) like a million bucks! This skin care routine will put some tread back on your tires. It’s got anti aging properties and keeps it hydrated and healthy! Enjoy!! Let me know– what’s your favorite skin care product??
