Products You Need For Your Skin Every Single Day

 I'm a little obsessed with skincare. 


And I'm reading GTFO Of The Sun and honestly, it is a skincare bible for all of us who really care about taking care of our skin. 

I don't wear makeup everyday, especially since the pandemic has me working from home permanently (which honestly we aren't complaining!!) so I've really been able to just let my skin breathe and do its thing.

My skin has been a bit of a battle for a few years. If you've been around for a while, you know that I have hormonal acne that also makes its way down to my neck and chest area sometimes. I'm super insecure about it and I mean, it also just hurts. Like physically hurts sometimes.

I've recently been trying out some different herbal supplements to help balance out my hormones and I'm actually seeing some progress. I've also been really meticulous about my daily skincare routine and since I've really taken it seriously, there has been a difference.

Like as I write this, I don't have a single blemish on my face. I've got some dark spots, but not a single blemish. And it feels so good.

It has taken years to find a skincare routine that works for me. I don't love using 100 different products, because I am busy! I want something simple, but effective. 

So, here are my holy grail products that I am absolutely loving right now. I use them every single day. Yes... Every. Single. Day.

Vitamin C Serum
If you aren't using a vitamin C serum on your face, run to the store and start today. You can read all the details about vitamin c for your skin on Healthline, but long story short it's amazing! Vitamin C is brightening, evens out your skin tone, promotes collagen production, and protects against sun damage. I use vitamin C in the morning with my face suncreen. Take it down to the girls. Yes, all the way down your neck and chest. 

SPF!
Seriously, get out of the sun! The sun ages your skin. I love basking in the sun, but if I'm going to be out in the sun for more than a few minutes to get some vitamin D, I'm wearing suncreen. I wear an SPF product on my face every day. Stay away from the chemical sunscreens. Mineral only! 

Eye Cream
I've been blessed with insanely dark under-eyes (can you sense the sarcasm?). Even as a kid, the skin under my eyes has been really dark, so I like to use a brightening eye cream. The skin around our eyes is really, really sensitive, so you want to take care of it. I actually use eye cream in the morning and night. Always apply it with your ring finger! 

Night Cream with Retinoids
I don't know why I was scared to use retinoids, but I avoided it for years and finally decided to try it. I found a night cream that has retinol in it and I actually use it every day. My skin has improved so much bu using a night cream with retinoids every night. Harvard says that retinoids reduce fine lines and wrinkles and boosts collagen production. Sometimes, these products can dry out your skin, so you may need to work your way up to using it nightly. 

Rose Water
I spray this on my skin every morning and night! It feels amazing if you keep it in your fridge. Rose water is insanely soothing and contains antioxidants. It also just feels so refreshing on your skin. 

Deodorant (without all the nasty ingredients!!)
Now, you may be thinking, "Deodorant is not a skincare product?" Okay, maybe, but it is something that we all (I hope) wear daily, right? Before I was worried about my skincare routine, I never failed to miss a day of deodorant. 

I've always used a natural deodorant, so I know that it can be tough to find a really good one. There are so many out there and it is never a good thing to think that it is working, only to realize it doesn't in the middle of your day. 

Humble deodorant NEVER disappoints, though! All of their products have the cleanest, most effective ingredients. Everything is also 100% body-friendly and created with 100% natural essential oils. With these ingredients, I can feel good about using this deodorant because not only does it work, but it also is free of all those nasty ingredients that we don't want to put on our body.

Seriously, not only do I use these products every single day, but these are products that your skin needs every single day! Our bodies are ours for our entire life, so let's treat them well.

Amanda
