Morning & Evening Skin Care Routine:

I have finally found the perfect skin care routine! To start off i have very oily acne prone skin and these are the products that have worked for me. Ive been doing this routine for quite awhile and have had the best results.

2-3 times a week i will wake up and wash my face with my Up&Up (Target brand) facial scrub for blemishes and blackheads (oil-free w/ salicylic acid). Its comparable to the Saint Ives apricot scrub but half the price and i find I like it better.

On days that i am not using the facial scrub i will use my Aveeno Positively Radiant brightening cleanser ( oil-free,soap-free,hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic). The brightening effect will help diminish the appearance of any acne scarring you might have.

Every night i take off my makeup with a Equate (Walmart brand)Facial Cleansing Towelette.
Then i take my Purity made simple one-step facial cleanser by Philosophy and my Clarisonic Mia and deep clean my face.These 2 products are amazing together and have changed my skins life.
After washing my face i just apply my moisturizer (Garnier Moisture Rescue) unless im doing a face mask..

Face Masks- 2 times a week i like to do a face mask. I use the Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque.Ive been using it for years and i think its amazing at shrinking pores and smoothing the face. I leave it on for about 15 min or whenever it dries, once it dries it stops working.
I also really love Lush's Mask of Magnaminty.

Microdermabrasion Treatment- once a week i like to use a microdermabrasion scrub from Skinn called DermAppeal. I only use this on areas i have acne scarring ( jaw-line right under the apples of my cheeks) and Ive noticed my scars have been fading since starting to use this product.

* if you have oily skin i recommend using anything oil-free so you wont clog your pores.
