As much as I wish, I have never been the girl who has perfect glowing skin. I'm also a teenager and my hormones play an important role. I've found some products that work wonders. Some have helped me clear my acne and others are just great on the skin!
Cetaphil Skin Cleanser - This cleanser doesn't have any fragrances and it leaves your face feeling soft and refreshed.
First Aid Beauty Deep Cleanser - This is a gel cleanser, which makes it feel a bit thicker than a normal one. The red clay in this product is what really sets it apart. I've never used a cleanser that was red before! Using a pea size amount is all you need per wash. It's a bit more expensive than a drugstore cleanser, but it's definitely worth it.
St. Ives Green Tea Scrub - I only use this scrub about two-three times per week. It's fantastic for controlling acne or dry skin, which I was cursed with.
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque - I like to pamper myself with a face mask once a week. This is my go-to on a Sunday night. I have overly sensitive skin and I've found that this doesn't irritate it like other masks. I leave it on for 30 minutes and it dries my acne right up! It can be a bit hard to wash off, but it's a great product regardless.
Delon Skin Toner - Using a toner after washing your face can make all the difference. A cleanser removes some of the dirt, but a toner gets deep down to get the rest of the dirt your cleanser missed. If you struggle with acne and don't use any type of toner, I suggest you start! It can help tremendously. Try to buy one with witch hazel in it.
Now Almond Oil - Why would I want to rub oil all over my face? Because it's super moisturizing! Again, I struggle with dry skin. I mostly use this at night so it can soak into my skin. On top of that it's great for your hair and the rest of your body.
Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel - Not a necessity, but it makes my tired early morning eyes feel more awake. It's very refreshing.
Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer - I use this everyday, regardless of what season it is. It's not too heavy or light, and it leaves your skin looking dewy.
Origins Drink Up Intensive - I'm not even exaggerating when I say this has to be one of the best overnight masks I have ever used. If you have dry skin, this product will be your best friend. All you need is a pea size amount, rub it in, and your skin wakes up moisturized and glowing. I also like to use this when I'm going to be traveling by plane. My holy grail item!
Are there any skin products that you can't live without? Let me know :)
