My Daily Skin Care Routine

With the official start of autumn around the corner {this Saturday - can you believe it?!}, it's time I start prepping not only my fall wardrobe but first and foremost, my skin. I truly believe that taking care of your skin is the most important step when getting prepped and ready for the day. It is the first thing I take care of in the morning and last thing at night. 

My daily routine is simple. I cleanse and exfoliate, often using a great scrub or facial brush, which I find more effective than a regular wash cloth. If I'm feeling lazy or traveling, I often use daily facial cleanser towelettes. Followed up with toner and a tinted moisturizer, which can often double as a primer before I apply make-up.

During the colder months, my skin often becomes dry and dull. To keep a healthy & bright complexion, I try to exfoliate more often with the help of at home microdermabrasion.  Using a sonic facial brush exfoliates dull, dead skin; improves texture and leaves my skin feeling smooth & radiant. There is no better feeling than that! 

Instead of heading to the dermatologist or spa for a pricey facial {I'm a girl on a budget!}, I suggest investing in your own microdermabrasion products for a fraction of the cost, and easily integrate it into your weekly beauty routine, which, trust me, will be the best decision of your life. Try any online retailer, like ShopHQ.com, for a wide variety of products to best suite your skin care needs.

Be sure to follow up with a moisturizer that won’t clog your pores and offers an SPF of at least 15 or 20.  I tend to use moisturizers that offer a hint of color, especially on days I'm not into wearing make-up. I can throw some on for coverage & sun protection. Skin cancer runs in my family so I can't stress enough to wear something with an SPF underneath your make-up. It will only protect you in the long run and help prevent all those wrinkles & sun spots as we age :)

Do you have a daily skin care routine or a favorite product you swear by? I'd love to hear about it below!
