Skincare Routine

Hi lovelies!

So I've been getting a ton of messages,comments, and emails asking me how I keep my face looking so clean and flawless. So I thought, why not make a step by step skincare routine! First and foremost, everyone has different kinds of skin, from oily, to sensitive, to very acne-prone. Depending on how your skin is, you have to take measures to get it to look amazing!
My skincare routine is pretty simple. It consists of a cleanser, toner, and a moisturizer  I do exfoliate once a week and follow up with a mask. I'll go into detail about that later.
The one thing that will really help you benefit a lot from your skincare routine is if you stick in the same brand for your whole system. It's even better if you stick in the same line. 
I use Loccitane's Imortelle and Brightening System everyday. I also use the Fresh Face Water which is in the Shea line, but can be used for anyone. 
The Imortelle line by Loccitane is made with the Imortelle flower, which is known as the "everlasting" flower. The precious oil from this flower is uniquely crafted and put into each of the products made. 
These are the main three products I use on the daily:

This is the brightening cleanser, which would be step one. I'm absolutely in love with this product! I used to break out almost every other weak, or have at least one annoying blemish which would leave dark spots all over. Ever since I started using this product, my face has yet to break out. It helps get rid of dark spots and is gentle on your skin. I don't even break out during my monthly friend, which would be the most hectic week ever!

 This is one of those products that can be used any time during the day. Being step two, this helps balance the pH level in your skin and helps maintain a nice skin tone, and hydrates your skin while cleaning away all your impurities. I love how it's a nozzle spray, so you don't even have to worry about using cotton pads everyday! Just spray this all over your neck and face and you'll be feeing fresh in no time!

This is like a miracle in a jar. I've tried so many different products, from Chanel to drugstore, to find a moisturizer that would hydrate my skin but not leave it feeling oily. This is my favorite. It gives me the perfect balance between having my skin feel soft and supple without any of the oil! This would be my last step in my skincare routine.

An exfoliator shouldn't be used more than twice a week. Especially if it's abrasive, it can make your skin break out. Always follow up with a mask. This will help close your pores and help in not breaking out. These are my two go to products whenever doing a "mini-facial":

This exfoliator is in the same skincare line as the rest of the products above mentioned, so it will really help you get that glowing flawless look in no time! This helps also with minimizing dark spots!

  This has to be one of the most versatile masks ever. You don't even have to take it off! It can be used as a moisturizer and won't leave your skin feeling weird or oily. 

It's very important to have a daily skincare routine. I can't stress as to how beneficial it is for your skin, especially when you get older.  Check out a Loccitane near you, or go to the website - Loccitane, and see which skincare line is perfect for you!



  1. Thank you so much for this! I don't really even know why but my skin has started breaking out so much like it wasn't even that bad before.. I just wanted to ask that is it better to use a cleanser everyday or a daily exfoliating wash?

    1. Hi doll! What other products are you using? You can do a gently exfoliator everyday, because it won't be abrasive and hurt your skin. A cleanser is also nice, but what brand are you using right now?

  2. I was using this Physiogel Cleanser i got but i stopped like last week b/c i was still getting alot of spots so i started using a Clean & Clear daily exfoliating wash! Its a bit drying tho so should i just continue that with a moisturizer? Thanks for replying!
