My Current Skin Routine


Clear skin can be such a hard thing to come by.. it's been a struggle of mine since I got to college. I had perfect porcelain skin until my hormones and stress kicked in. #thestruggle

As most of you know, I went on a Rodan and Fields journey this time last year and it really cleared my skin up. I was extremely pleased but I did not want to continue such an expensive regimen when I knew I could easily get it under control and then find something that worked for me that was affordable and easier. When I transitioned off of R&F wash my face freaked out...and so I freaked out as well. I wasn't sure what went wrong and why I was having acne all over my face again. After much research and debate I decided I would eliminate everything but the sulfur wash and use that to keep it under control till my skin was more "normal" and didn't get ticked off with the drop of a hat. 

After lots of research and trying to find some natural remedies, I started using Apple Cider Vinegar orally 3 times a day with water. Yes, it was awful but it really worked. I couldn't keep up with it forever so I stopped but recently with the outbreak of acne on my face I'm picking it up again. So, if you're struggling with acne, go buy some Apple Cider Vinegar and take three tbps three times a day till your skin clears. You should see results in less than five days! 

Other than some natural remedies.. my skin regimen right now consists of a wash and a moisturizer that I received in my FabFitFun box. Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum is what I use after I wash my face and Osea Atmosphere Protection Cream in the morning after I wash. Before hormones and stress kicked in with finals, this routine was working really well. Right now everything is flared up but my external circumstances are the causes of that I believe. 

A small factor that I believe really helped my skin was these silicone skin scrubbers. I placed my face wash on them and moved it in a circular direction all over my face once I got all my makeup off with a wipe. I think this really helped get rid of excess dirt because before this I was just using my hands and I don't think that was getting all of the dirt. I highly recommend getting one of these if you are tired of using wash clothes or just use your hands. 

These are just a few of the steps I have been using but for Christmas I asked for the Tula Skin Care Discovery Kit. I've heard nothing but wonderful things about this through many different bloggers so if you need something to add to your list, I highly recommend that! 

Thanks for listening to my ramble about skin during the craziest week ever (aka finals). I am officially done Monday. 😍  HELLO BREAK! Have a wonderful weekend friends!

  1. I had to come back to say, thanks for sharing the silicone skin scrubbers! Life changing! I'd been using a face wipe that claimed gentle cleaning for face wash but I don't think it was actually any better than just using my own hands. These scrubbers are PERFECT!!! I've told every woman I know about them and started including them in my Christmas gifts for the various ladies in my life lol
