Hey all how is everything going with everyone? For me you might ask I’m thriving that’s the best word I can use to describe how I’m doing. So as you can see this post is about face masks which I absolutely love! Disclaimer face masks aren’t meant to be used constantly if you are trying to conquer smooth and incredible skin, that’s what water is for. Face masks are simply used to give your skin a boost in a short and fast period of time. I have grown to love them and use them on my off days when I feel as though my skin and face overall need some touching up also because I’m not drinking enough water like I should be oops.
But what I love most about the various face masks that I have been trying is that they lift my skin and leave it with a glow. Plus I get to relax and watch my favorite tv show, Teen Wolf, while the mask works its magic. Now I have tried a variety of masks and so far my favorite is the Bioré one minute charcoal self heating mask followed by Yes To face masks. I have perfected my facial routine over the years I never suffered from acne like most people the only time I break out is when it’s that time of the month. But when I was in high school I tried different face washes to help with my combination skin. I have dry sensitive skin that becomes very oily and I tried so many different cleansers that barely worked.
I think it wasn’t until my Junior year of high school that I found a cleanser that worked for me and that was St. Ives until it started to not work for me anymore. So once I got to college I stopped washing my face and I noticed that I broke out from time to time due to my diet. It wasn’t until I started to notice that my face didn’t have a glow to it anymore and it didn’t seem as smooth as it used to be when I was younger. So I set out to find the perfect cleanser for my face I most definitely did with Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask by Neutrogena. This cleanser is by far the best one yet for my skin it doesn’t dry it out like I noticed what St. Ives was doing.
Also whenever I’m too lazy to wash my face, which is all the time, I use equate facial cloths which leave my face feeling fresh and clean plus it has a great smell to it. After I wipe my face with the cloth I apply the cleanser and sometimes I’ll decide if I’m just using it as a wash or as a mask. The only time I use it as a mask is when my face just feels completely gross other than that I’ll use it as a basic cleanser that leaves my face feeling revitalized. After I cleanse they say you’re supposed to put moisturizer on your face but I don’t do that because I haven’t found the right one. But if I have to immediately head to work and I know I’ll be in the sun I apply Coppertone Oil Free Faces with an SPF of 50+ to keep my skin from drying out.
I think after writing this post I’ll make a daily face routine post in the near future and go step by step on what I do to keep my face looking and feeling clean and fresh on the daily but in the mean time I’ll post pictures of the products I’m currently using! I’ll probably also post a health post about my shift to a plant based diet and what I’ve been eating, drinking, and the exercises I’ve adapted.
So until next time everyone I hope you enjoy your Sunday and your Labor Day if you have it off, I don’t but I can’t complain when my bills are getting paid right!
Until next time,
