NEW and IMPROVED

Since my first blog post and a few more months in school, I've learned SO MUCH about my skin. So, I decided to switch out a few products that I have been using for maybe too long. As a reminder, I do have dry skin that gets occasional breakouts. For those of you with oily skin I will do a blog for your skin type soon!


CLEANSER

PAULA'S CHOICE CLEAR PORE MINIMIZING CLEANSER

I started out using Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser when I was 16 years old. It was quite possible the best thing I had ever done for my skin, and I still recommend that product, I just needed a little change. Recently, I did a product review on this and I am SO HAPPY I did. These two products are similar in the fact that they contain salicylic acid to help with breakouts but have healing ingredients to calm redness and not dry out your skin. Not everyone that has acne breakouts has oily skin!!


MOISTURIZER

BIOELEMENTS REALLY RICH MOISTURE

Another product I started using ages ago is Kiehl's Panthenol Protein Moisturizer. This was my favorite moisturizer ever and then it was discontinued (sad). I loved how soft it made my skin and although it was hydrating it was light and creamy. This cream makes my face feel just as smooth!


TOOLS

CLARISONIC MIA FIT

Okay, so I have always had a clarisonic (the first version that was pretty large and pink!). I think when I decided to purchase a smaller, cuter version I started using it more- sometimes that's all it takes! This is my favorite tool that I have. The clarisonic exfoliates lightly and gives your skin a nice smooth texture, it also helps your product penetrate. I have seen noticeably less breakouts since I've been using it more often!


What products have you added to your regimen? Are you happy you made the switch? I'd love to hear about your favorite products!

Thanks for reading!
