A Skincare Update with Clarisonic

So it's been a minute...but hi guys! 

It's no secret that I have a little bit of a skincare obsession! I love everything about it...the routine is so comforting and the science behind it is SO interesting! Maybe it's a little bit ironic because I've struggled with my skin for a while now! The past few months have been a little bit frustrating...after a summer of good skin, I was surprised when I got back to school and it started to freak out! 

The first step in my skincare routine is always to CLEANSE! It's so important to start with a clean base, especially when you're applying makeup or skincare. Lately, my routine has included the combination of the Kiehls Ultra Facial Cleanser and the
Clarisonic Mia Prima.  I'm a little more aggressive in the evenings to make sure I get rid of all my makeup from the day so I'll start with a makeup wipe, follow up with a cleansing oil, and then finally use my Clarisonic to really get my skin clean!

My roommate and I both use the Kiehls cleanser - she has amazing skin and while mine is a little more stubborn and problematic, I've found that this doesn't dry my skin at all and actually helps to keep oils at a minim. For any skincare junkies out there (myself included...) the cleanser's main ingredients include Squalane, Apricot Kernel Oil, Vitamin E, and Avocado Oil - so you know its great for all skin types.

I love trying new skincare/makeup products but there is a certain level of uncertainty since my skin is acne-prone! While the  Clarisonic Mia doesn't fight acne itself, it helps to give the ultimate cleansing experience by removing the dirt, oil, and debris that might cause breakouts. A strong skincare routine, quality products, a healthy diet, and drinking tons of water are what I find to help my skin the most! My new Clarisonic Mia is the perfect addition to my skincare routine - it's so easy to easy, gentle on my skin, and gives me a super soft, clean feeling!

What does your skincare routine look like? Let me know - I'm so interested to hear about your favorite products!

I'm so happy that I've found a cleansing routine that works well with my skin so I thought I would share some of the other products that I've been loving as well. 

A313 - I bought this from an Into the Gloss recommendation and so far I've been loving it! It's a Vitamin A / Retinol that helps to create an even skin texture.

Leo Oil - I found this product through Instagram and I'm already on my second bottle. It's a combination of blue tansy, rosehip seed oil and meadowfoam seed oil. It moisturizes and treats irritated skin. Everything about the product is hand-made by an amazingly inspiring woman and the products has helped me calm down my skin's redness. 

Vitamin C - I picked up this Vitamin C at Whole Foods and use it in the morning before my moisturizer. I haven't been using it for too long but I've noticed it helping diminish my current acne scarring and prevent any more. 

Lippie Balm - Lip balms are my favorite things to try out and this one is a new favorite! The packaging is adorable, the product isn't sticky, it moisturizes so well, and you can even use it under eyes as a moisturizing treatment.
