As I'm getting older, I'm coming to realize the importance of taking care of my skin (omg did I really just say that?!) Well my skin care regimen is super simple compared to some people, but still better than most. I have always been a fan of using facial scrubs. One of my favorites is still the Volcanic Ash from MAC (which I have a separate post for here). But as of lately I have added a couple more products to my routine.
All I would do before my foundation was to MAYBE put some moisturizer on. But times have changed and so has my skin. So now it requires a little more effort and care to ensure that it looks good and stays looking good with and without makeup on.
Serum: I use my serum before everything else. I believe that by using it fist my skin will soak up all of the benefits of the serum and it will work better.
Moisturizer: I've been using Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream and it's ok. The consistency is not as thick as I like my moisturizer to be. It does its job but I think I can find a better moisturizer for my skin. For me is extremely important to moisturize because I exfoliate my skin often enough, and I tend to stick to matte foundation because I get oily throughout the day, and this can cause my skin to feel tight and overly dry sometimes.
Porefessional: I have seriously fallen in love with this product lately. It leaves my skin so smooth and flawless before I apply my foundation! And I talked about this product a little more in depth here.
Strobe Liquid: I am currently using MAC's Strobe liquid in Golden Elixir. This is what I was mainly using to blur and smooth my skin before I tried the Porefessional. However I sometimes will use both. This color was limited edition, and if and when it comes back I will stock up on it!!!1 It gives my skin a golden glow. It helps to hydrate my skin while giving it a matte feel, helping so that my skin doesn't get super oily throughout the day. I really like this version of the strobe liquid because the original has a whitish/pinkish finish to it and it just doesn't look too good on my skin tone.
