Skincare

My skincare essentials!

I have suffered from dry, scaly, itchy, psoriasis-covered skin my whole adult life. Not to mention the acne, the acne scarring, and the inevitable laugh lines from smiling too much. Here are some of my must haves and things that have really helped my skin out in the past.

Acne

While still breastfeeding, I started using Vichy LiftActive Vitamin C Serum.

After breastfeeding, Differin helped clear up my hormonal acne and fade scarring.

For the inevitable pimple, apply a Mighty Patch overnight.

Moisturizers

Get yourself some Weleda Skin Food and thank me later.

I slather on CeraVe Moisturizer after every shower.

For a particularly rough psoriasis breakout I either use Aquaphor or Egyptian Magic.

Exfoliation

I was introduced to the PMD by Kayti @thebeyoutybureau. It’s worth every penny.

Don’t forget to use a toner afterward. I like SKIN&CO Roma Truffle Therapy Essential Face Toner.

End with a sheet mask like these or these.

Miscellaneous

Makeup removing towels like these are an easy switch to decrease waste.

I swapped regular cotton balls for these little towels and it was a game changer!
