It’s been fall for almost a month and I just finished curating my fall skincare routine.
There were a few hiccups along the way such as trying to figure out which products were making me break out with dry patches. Actually, there were a couple of combinations that caused this to happen. Keep reading to the see the what and why of the products I use in my fall morning skincare routine.
Growing up, I always had oily, acne-prone skin. However, the older I’ve gotten, the less oily my skin has gotten. Although I still get the occasional hormonal breakout, it’s nothing compared to yesteryears. Now, my skin is starting to get drier and drier each season. I’m sure I can attribute this to the fact that my skin is aging. So much so, that I’m always looking for anti-aging products to add to my routine. One product that I’m looking to add are some hydrating cleansers.
All of my cleansers are either for normal or oily skin, which is why my skin has been feeling dry. So, I’m on the hunt for a new cleanser that hydrates my skin, but also good for aging and/or dull skin. Keep reading to see the ones I’m leaning towards.
Spending almost a month sick took a huge toll on my daily life, including my skincare routine. While I was sick, I wore hardly any makeup and when I did I removed it with makeup wipes. I’m so ashamed. In the mornings, I would just wash my face with a gentle cleanser and put on moisturizer and sunscreen. I didn’t use any toners, serums, or hardly any under eye creams. Needless to say, my skin was not happy and eventually turned on me. So, once I was back to my normal self and the weather started getting a little cool, I’ve been treating myself to some new skincare products.
My skin is very particular about it’s needs once the temperatures start changing. Almost as soon as the first chilly morning happens, my skin gets drier and requests more hydrating and anti-aging products. Fall is almost here and need to figure out my fall skincare routine. So, for the most part, my latest skincare purchases have been all about the hydrating. Keep reading to see my recent pick ups and why.
I’m a product girl. I love trying and experimenting with different products from different brands. Doing this has helped me find brands and products I couldn’t imagine not using. However, this process has also led me to products some of the worst beauty products I’ve ever tried. Don’t get me wrong, these products are necessarily horrible, but the didn’t work for me.
Interested in in why I would never use these products again, then keep reading.
I have to admit that it’s very upsetting that some of my fellow women of color still don’t use sunscreen. Although skin cancer is more prevalent in Caucasians, the sun is unbiased when it comes to damaging skin. Sunscreen for brown skin is very important.
For the most part, most people of color either think they don’t need sunscreen, which is untrue. Then there are those who don’t wear sunscreen, because it created a white hue that makes them look “ashy”, which is never cute. Luckily, this is no longer an issue. There are sunscreens on the market that protect you from the sun with a the white residue. I have round up some sunscreen options that will work for brown skin tones.
