My Skin Care Routine

With such a plethora of skin care products out in our day of age, it’s hard to know which products are harmful or not. With these common and inexpensive commodities, I would like to introduce my everyday skin care routine for normal skin (not oily nor dry). The products I use every day consists of Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser, Cetaphil Extra Gentle Daily Scrub, Neutrogena Alcohol-free Toner, Cetaphil Skin Restoring Moisturizer, and any basic cotton rounds.

To begin, I tie my hair up and turn the water lukewarm (too hot of water can cause redness and can dry skin out). First, I grab my Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser and scrub a dime-size amount to my face in circular motions until the cleanser begins to foam. After this, rinse and pat dry your face. After the cleanser I proceed to the extra gentle daily scrub. With this product, essentially the same technique is used. It is important to purchase a gentle face scrub because scrubs with large granules can cause small tears in your pores. After using the scrub, rinse, dry, then move on to the alcohol-free toner. Apply the toner to a cotton round, only a few drops will be necessary. Once this is complete, apply the toner to your face in upward motions. Toner is used to decrease redness as well as tighten to prevent wrinkles. Finally, I end with the skin restoring moisturizer. Apply a pea-sized drop generously to the face.

This skin care treatment has changed the quality of my skin and has been a game changer. Having access to inexpensive and healthy products has helped build my confidence as well as decreased my acne and redness. Creating a skin care ritual will not only help with self-assurance, but also make a brightness that everyone is bound to notice.
