My updated skincare routine

My skin makes me feel like I’m a teenager. Not because it’s young and firm, but because I’m always breaking out. I started having acne when I was in 8th grade and it’s stuck with me ever since. I hate having to say that I have adult acne. However it’s not an uncommon issue. Now I have a skincare routine that allows me to battle the worst breakouts. The rest of the time my skin is clear and healing well.

My skin is very oily and I never feel too dry after using the cleanser. To keep my skin matte for a majority of the day (because it doesn’t last all day) I use the Mattifying Lotion and the Lush Tea Tree Water. I like the Lush toner more than the Body Shop toner because it makes my skin feel cleaner. There’s no other way to describe the feeling, it’s very refreshing.

I use Grease Lightening on spot treatment areas since it’s very drying for skin. It’s perfect for that one red spot although it can dry and flake if it’s used as an all over face product. I only use it on my whole face if I’ve got a nasty cluster break out coming.

9 to 5 is a pretty decent makeup oil based remover it’s a little too oily for my taste. I’m almost at the end of this bottle so I’ll be looking for something as creamy and that can be used in the shower. This can to be a speedy makeup remover. With cotton pads for a quick clean up, but I like taking off the entire day in the shower. Like I said, a bit too oily for my tastes.

The Tea Tree Night Lotion and one or two squirts of Grease Lightening go on before bed (like I said I only use GL if I need it). It keeps my skin moisturized during the night and leaves my skin feeling supple.

    I’ve never used Tea Tree Water before, but it sounds lovely. Anything from Lush sounds lovely! Thank you for sharing!

      I highly recommend it! It does have a unique but light scent to it but if you’re fine with that it’s perfect for irritated skin.
