The other day I went into my bathroom and realized I had way too many beauty products that I wasn't using. I decided to do a bit of 'spring cleaning' and rid myself of those items that I no longer used. As you can see the result was a nice streamlined shelf of the most important items that I use on a daily basis. While this after photo is still in my opinion a few items too many, there were some items that I just couldn't bear to part with.
I wanted to share with you guys a few of the brands that are my skincare staples and why I use them more than others.
Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser
This is the cleanser that I use when I get home from work in the morning and prepare to go to bed. It is very mild and works well for me and my occasional breakouts. I absolutely love this stuff.
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream
I've been reading about the importance of retinols in helping with skin turnover and maintaining healthy skin. I finally found something that I love in this brand and I use it in combination with my Cetaphil cleanser as a night cream moisturizer.
Aveda Cream Cleanser and Moisturizing System
I use this moisturizing cleanser and skin cream before I head to work at night. I work in a lab and the air is very dry and this system keeps my skin moisturized and dewy.
A few of the other products are just some extras. I love my Artistry skincare products for mini facials, Aveda Acne Cleansing Pads for moments of really bad outbreaks and Peter Thomas Roth Hyularonic Acid for extremely cold winters to layer under my moisturizers. The biggest thing that I splurge on are facials at Aveda every six weeks. They are so worth the money!!
