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.

Morning

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.

 

 

Night

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.

My current skin care essentials that won’t break the bank

I have always been really blessed with overall good skin.  But these past winter months have been harsh, and being pregnant on top of it, I had to change up my routine. I used to be able to get away with a quick exfoliator, some witch hazel, and some moisturizer from the drugstore.  Early into my pregnancy, my face became so dry and inflamed. No matter what I did, it was red and irritated. (So different than my pregnancy with Maxwell, I had a glow the entire time.) I went in for a facial for a quick fix and she was able to recommend some products that are hydrating yet wouldn’t break the bank.

Here are my current skin care essentials:

(And in true blogger fashion, I’ve linked them all for you)

The Body Shop Aloe Vera Calming Foaming Wash

This is such a gentle cleanser. I use it every morning on my face in the shower. It leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh for the day yet it’s also calming for your skin.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Rosewater

As soon as I get out of the shower, I use a few spritzes of this rosewater spray for some extra hydration before applying my daily moisturizer. It helps to lock all that moisture in. I also keep it in my bag and will use throughout the day for a little pick me up for my skin and to give it a glow.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream

The Body Shop vitamin E cream

This is my go-to all day moisturizer. It’s hydrating, yet not heavy. It won’t leave your skin feeling greasy throughout the day and won’t clog your pores. You don’t need alot, just a little dab goes a long way. I love to put a little extra on my lips too.

I also love Caudalie Vinosource sorbet as well and will switch them out time to time.

Caudalie Gentle Cleansing Milk

I use this as my night time cleanser but you could also use as your daytime as well.

The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Night Cream

I had never used night creams. I had the thought that putting moisturizer on overnight would clog my pores and lead to breakouts. This has a velvety, whipped texture that’s perfect to use overnight for moisture and to repair skin. It’s not oily, or greasy, and will help keep your skin clear.

Facial masks

So about 2-3 times a week, I take a little “me-time”, apply a mask and sit down with a cup of tea.  My favorites are Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask and Shea Moisture African Black Soap Clarifying Mask.
