As promised I wanted to share my favorite skincare products that I use and love. And I also wanted to share how I deal with hyperpigmentation and also keeping my skin very moisturized. Disclaimer* I’m by no means stating that my skin is perfect- I have a long ways to go. In fact I have a very painful small hormonal cyst-like bump forming on my cheek right now. So like I have said before I have struggled with hyperpigmentation (melasma) and still do and it’s mostly hormonal and really can’t be helped. But I try to reduce it by using a very good sunscreen, this is the one that I use and have been using it now for years. It is not greasy and comes in tinted or regular. I have found the a lot of you use it also and love it. I also wear a lot of hats to keep the sun off my face because if I don’t I’ll have major bloches of melasma and it is not a pretty sight.
To be honest, when I was a teenager, I did not take care of my skin. When I got in my twenties I started researching products and becoming more aware of not only taking care of my body but also my skin. I did not moisturize properly or even at all. Now I moisturize like crazy! I use This one during the day and It. Is. The.Best. Ever! And I am not exaggerating at all. I literally can’t use anything else, ts that good. I have also started using an eye gel during the day underneath my moisturizer. I use this one from Clinique and it has little moisture beads in them.
At night I have been using this moisturizer and sometimes a mask. I occasionally layer my night time moisturizer with a little bit of shea butter for a little extra or this oil and I love it. It gives my skin a nice glow. As I have said before I’m not a makeup wearer, so I love taking care of my skin from the inside out. Like eating good and healthy foods and drinking tons of water. Don’t get me wrong I eat my share of Chickfila and love boba tea or a delicious cup of vanilla iced coffee. However, That’s in moderation like all unhealthy things we enjoy like fried chicken, etc.
I’ll link each product pictured just in case you’d like to check them out for yourself. Also, if you have any questions feel free to reach out to me.
