im back! with some news and new skincare routine!
ok im back!! ive been very busy lately. i started a new job as a waitress and i love it. the hours arent bad at all. anyway, ive decided to take a challenge and go totally organic and vegan for 30 days. i have a new skin care routine. quite honestly, ive never had a definate skin care routine so im proud of myself!
everyday when i wake up, i dont wash my face, i just apply my moisturizer because my face is so dry. i apply my tarte smooth operator (i cant live without this) NEVER breaks me out. and some cheek tint and a little mascara.
at night, i wash my face with,... wait for it.. OIL! sweet almond oil. i know what youre thinkin. this chick is CRAZY! but think about it. if you have dry skin, oil fights oil. i know theres science behind it just google it. cleansers strip your face of oils which makes your skin create more, yada yada yada. my face feels so soft and glowing, even after using my acne cream.
i take a pump of the oil on a towlette or rag, and softly work in slow circles around my face. i then use a gentle exfoliator like st ives or i make my own out of salt and olive oil or honey. lastly, i apply my moisturizer, plain old cetaphil.
i do this everyday and my skin is glowing. some nights ill use a clay mask i bought at the health food store, and ill do a steam. and about twice a week ill use my acne cream tretnoin, which helps alot.
in a couple of days, im gonna stock up on fresh fruits, veggies, and water. im going to buy organic shampoo and body wash. i already have dr bonners which i bought today. the peppermint one.
if you know of a good vegan organic moisturizer, please let me know?
ill try to keep up a new post everyweek!!
