Hello everyone! Today I have another skin care post to share with you.
I feel like my journey into the world of skin care has been a ride since I was a teen all the way to adulthood. A lot of learning and habit changing has happened so I thought I would share with you the tips that I live by for maintaining healthy skin 🙂 I am in no way a ‘professional skin care guru-type’, but these are just the little tricks I’ve learned and live by.

My Top Skin Care Tips:
1. There is such thing as too much of a good thing. I remember I was so obsessed with having perfectly smooth skin, I would exfoliate every single day, morning and night. I realized that my excessive scrubbing had seriously agitated my skin and caused it to flare up. This is also relevant to face masks and anything in your skincare routine. It is always so tempting to attack acne with all the treatments you have, but sometimes you just need to ease up and let your skin breath for a day or two.
2. Make sure your towels, face cloths and any other thing you use are totally clean. I know it’s easy to say ‘oh I can get one more wash out of this’ but things like clothes and fabric collect bacteria easier than you think, and can transfer bacteria to your face unknowingly. If you don’t have a face cloth I completely recommend investing in a few to save money as well as helping the environment.
3. Coconut oil is definitely the new obsession since 2017. And for good reason too! As we already know This little powerhouse is an amazing moisturizer ( and tastes delicious in cooking 😋) but another great use for it is to help grow your eyebrows/eyelashes. That’s right, coconut oil is full of vitamins and proteins that nourish the follicles of your lashes and brows, encouraging growth and thickness. Just be careful when using oil around your eyes. 😊 I will put it on my brows as part of my nighttime routine and let it soak in before I go to bed.
4. Double Cleansing is one of the most recent steps I’ve added to my skincare regime. The results it gave me were amazing after I had suffered from a break out of acne on my forehead and chin. I didn’t get it. I was doing my regular skincare routine and it just didn’t work anymore. That’s when I discovered that double cleansing is one of the only ways to really get rid of all the dirt and impurities that our skin picks up throughout the day. A single cleanse is often enough to wash away makeup and make the skin ‘look’ clean, but if your pores are extra stubborn like mine, that second cleanse is super necessary for getting rid of the leftover dirt and makeup that the first cleanse doesn’t get. I typically use the Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing balm to remove makeup, and then I use a liquid face wash of some sort after. Lately, I’ve been loving the Clean and Clear night relaxing facial cleanser. It’s a great price and I love how it makes my skin feel after ❤️
I hope this has maybe helped in any way! Please let me know what some of your tips are in the comments as I love to keep educating myself on the topic 😀
