Skin Routine

Skin Products

My skin isn't horrible but it isn't perfect either.  I broke out between the ages of 15 and 17 and then it miraculously cleared up.  I stayed blemish-free until the last couple of years.  After I finished having children for some reason the break outs started again. Ugh!  Now to be dealing with wrinkles, aging skin and blemishes... it just seems unfair.  My dermatologist prescribes my Acetone gel that I use twice a day under my moisturizer.  It helps with the break outs. Everything else listed either helps prep my skin or is the make-up that works best on my difficult, combination, aging skin! I'm still looking for a great nighttime moisturizer and skin oil, so please let me know your favorites!

Avéne Oil- Free Gel Cleanser
[from Woo]
This is what I use every night to wash my face.  My skin is super sensitive, sometimes its dry, sometimes I break out... you name it.  This works great along with my Clarisonic brush to remove my make-up and keep my face clean.

Revision Nectifirm
[from Infinity Med Spa]
I recently started using this at night when I noticed some wrinkles on my neck. Praying it works good and fast!!!

Elta Face Lotion with SPF 46
[from Infinity Med Spa]
This Elta is great because it not only protects you from the sun but also from breakouts!  It contains benezol peroxide so if you are oily or prone to breakouts- this is perfect for you!

I notice an immediate difference when I use the Caudalie eye cream with Resveratrol.  It reduces puffiness and smooths wrinkles.

Mario Badescu Face Spray
[from Anthropologie]
This is perfect when my face is feeling extra dry and an extra bottle stays in my beach/ pool bag all summer! It smells great too.

Lip Smart
[from Woo]
I use this for important events usually when I first get out of the shower.  It makes my lips appear slightly plumper by the time it's time to put on my lipstick and gloss.

Benefit Porefessional
[from Belk]
I dab a bit of this on my nose and the where my pores are larger on either side of my nose.  I also put a little bit on my forehead just between my eyebrows.

Chanel Concealer
[from Belk]
This is perfect for blemishes on your skin.  It covers all of your imperfections.

Chanel Aqua Liquid Foundation/ Powder
[from Belk]
For photoshoots and nights out I use this Chanel liquid Foundation and powder.  It has a little more coverage than the Studio Fix.

MAC Studio Fix
[from Belk]
I use a large powder brush to put this on everyday.  It feels light and has the perfect amount of coverage for day-to-day use.

This is one of the last things I put on.  After the eye-make-up, powder etc.... I put 3 dots under my eyes and pat in with my finger.  It covers any dark circles and brightens around your eyes to help you look less tired. If you are a mom, you know you need this!

Laura Mercier Bronzer
[from Woo]
This is my new favorite bronzer.  It's not too light, not too dark so it works great for my fair skin.

Laura Mercier Highlighter
[from Woo]
I dab just a bit of this on the top of my cheekbones to finish my face and give it a perfect glow. They have a few different colors but my personal favorite in Devotion.
