Skin Care Routine: Sensitive Skin

Hello! It's been a while since I last posted but I've been feeling inspired and decided why not?

I wanted to mention some of my favorite products for sensitive/acne prone skin. You can watch me mention everything I currently use here:  YOUTUBE: MLOVELY

However, I thought I'd blog and mention my two most favorite of the bunch (pictured above).

Bare Minerals: Purifying Facial Cleanser
I love this stuff because not only does it leave my skin feeling fresh and clean but it does not leave my skin dry. This is very important as I have combo skin as well and this is very gentle on my skin. I use it day and night and I absolutely love it.

I love that it contains Active Soil Complex: according to the website it "Supports natural cell turnover and antioxidant protection; a unique electrolyte delivery system moisturizes and helps skin retain moisture, resulting in smoother, healthier-looking skin."

St. Ives: Green Tea Scrub
I use this scrub everyday and it is gentle enough on my skin and although it has Acne Medication it does not dry out my skin. I love it because it's strong enough to keep my skin clear without the harsh effects that most Acne products tend to have. 

I also want to mention that I seem to have a better outcome from using products with Salicylic Acid as opposed to Benzyl Peroxide. I think it's highly important to distinguish which ingredients work better with your skin as we are all different. However, I feel like that made the difference for me when it came to clearing up my skin.

I hope this post helped and if you currently use any of the products mentioned here or on youtube video do let me know.

Thanks for reading!
