For someone who struggles to take off my makeup and wash my face at night, I sure am obsessed with skincare. I spend a lot of time researching tips, advice, and new products I can’t even begin to comprehend affording in my current unemployed state.
I’m also definitely not a trained esthetician or dermatologist. I have picked up some great advice from estheticians I’ve had treatments from and been friends with. With research, I think I have at long last gotten a handle on how to put together a basic skincare routine.
It’s important to note that if you have a skin condition, you will need to see a dermatologist to design a skincare routine. Also, if you’ve never had a professional facial, schedule one in soon! You can learn tons from an esthetician, and having a facial once or twice a year (at the least) is relaxing, soothing for your skin, and a wonderful treat for yourself.
Here’s some guidelines for putting together your skincare toolkit, based on my experiences. I’ve included the products I use as examples here, and would definitely recommend the lines I use!
