Let me preface this by saying this is what works for me and if you have any concerns then you should schedule an appointment with a dermatologist or esthetician to get their expert opinion.
Let's talk skin. I'm going to break down the different products that I use and then I'll tell you how I apply them. Fun fact: they're not all pictured ;) All of the products in this blog I use personally - if there is more than one in the same category I either alternate between the two or switch depending on what my skin needs. I have combination skin - meaning that I'm oily in my T zone, but dry on my cheeks. My skin varies depending on the weather, hormones, stress, etc so these products are versatile for many different skin types. A lot of them are expensive, but if you read till the end you're going to get my hacks on how I save money ;)
Always the first step. Get rid of makeup, oils, and buildup.
After cleansing, a toner is a fast and easy way to remove excess dirt, oil, makeup, correct and balance pH, and help fight acne.
Penetrate deeper in to the skin to deliver active ingredients for a variety of benefits.
Should always be the LAST step in your skin care routine because it is what locks in all the goodness you applied previously. If you are oily, you still need moisture! Oil and moisture and two different things, you can actually get acne from being too dry. Find a moisturizer that works well for your skin type.
