Best For: Oily + Acne Prone Skin (12 Minute Night Routine) All Natural
In this routine, I'll be sharing the best products for making sure your active acne isn’t irritated due to harsh chemicals present in so-called “effective” products. Instead, most of these products are made of close-to-the-Earth ingredients, and also are ideal if your skin is oily or combination.
The products I share here are fairly mild--which is important because you don’t want to be using those that are too rich. Rich products tend to clog your pores and could cause excess oil production and acne.
All in all, this routine leans closer to the natural side where the products are concerned and can take anywhere between 10 and 15 minutes!
Step 1: Remove Makeup with Andalou Naturals Makeup Wipes ($7 | 2 min)
Step 2: Remove x2 with Grace + Stella Cleansing F Balm. Apply with the applicator, then rinse off. I shared a bit more about this in my recent YouTube video on self-care. ($24 | 2 min)
Step 3: Exfoliate with Lancome Energie de Vie Scrub Mask. Leave on for 4-5 mins, then wash off ($46 | 5 min)
Step 4: Hydrate with the super light, and resh yet relaxing MyClarins Re-Charge Sleep Mask ($27 | 2 min)
Step 5: Apply Trader Joe’s Tea Tree oil on oily areas and active acne areas. In case you were curious, applying this oil on oily areas actually helps since it’s very cooling. I’ve shared my love and addiction for this product so much on Instagram! ($13 | 1 min)
Overall, this should leave you feeling refreshed enough to sleep without your pores feeling clogged, yet relaxed enough to get a good night’s sleep (which is just as essential for good skin).
