One of the lessons I learned from 2020 was to take better care of my skin. Here I am in my 30’s and I didn’t have any sort of skincare routine. So after some research and trial and error, I’ve found a low maintenance routine that I can stick to and gives me great results.
Note – everyone’s needs are going to be a little different. This is just what works for me.
I don’t know if it was stress, or having to wear a mask all the time but I noticed that my skin was starting to show it’s age and become very dry. So for me, my priorities were hydration and some sort of anti-aging because it’s never too early! Below I’m sharing my current skincare routine and you can click the links or photos to shop.
1.) Exfoliating sugar scrub – I use this 2-3 times a week to gently exfoliate. It’s great for all skin types, natural and cruelty free! (I use alot of Tula’s products because of these reasons). Use my code OURTINYNEST for 15% off your first order.
2.) Cleanser – I wash my face morning and night with Tula’s cult classic purifying face cleanser. It’s packed with superfoods and probiotics to be extra soothing to your skin and reduce inflammation. But it’s also gentle enough so it doesn’t strip your skin away of moisture. My favorite cleanser! You can use my code OURTINYNEST to get 15% off your first purchase!
3.) Hyaluronic Acid Serum – I apply a few drops of this Hyaluronic Acid Serum for extra moisture and it also helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Applying this first also helps to really absorb your moisturizer.
4.) Vitamin C Moisturizer – I love this Revive and Glow Gel Cream from Roc. It’s light and non greasy and has Vitamin C to brighten your skin, help reduce dark spots and give you an overall glow.
5.) Body Lotion – My favorite body lotion I apply as soon as I get out of the shower. I feel like it keeps my skin soft and moisturized all day long and it doesn’t leave a residue.
6.) Isle of Paradise Tanning Drops – I add a few drops to my body lotion and apply a few times a week to look naturally sun-kissed. I use shade medium. (Be sure to wash your hands afterwards or use a self-tanning mit).
7.) Lip protectant – Between the cold winter weather and especially with having to wear masks, my lips were soooo dry. This locks in moisture, serves a barrier and gives your lips a natural sheen.
1.) Cleanser – I wash my face again with this cleanser.
2.) Hyaluronic Acid Serum – Add a few drops of HA serum before applying my retinol.
3.) Retinol Anti-Aging Cream – This retinol guarantees results in 1 week. It’s helped to even out my skin tone and complexion, and will help reduce signs of aging. Retinol can be very drying so I would start low and go slow when starting out. And be careful around the eyes.
4.) Roc retinol eye cream – this is the newest addition to my routine. Specifically targets the lines and wrinkles around your eyes. It’s also helped reduce some of my dark circles.

I have a similar routine but I like to do the double cleansing in the night.
