Beauty 101

One of the most important parts of my day is washing my face before bed. It is so refreshing and invigorating to take everything off and settle down for the evening. Through a million trial and errors, I finally figured out a good routine. I wrote out my tops do's and don'ts when it comes to washing your face!

DO.. Make sure you use a face wash that works in harmony with your skin type. I learned this one the hard way. I have a weird mix of dry and oily skin, so finding a face wash or scrub that works well with me is hard work. good. One of my favorite face cleansers is OZ Naturals Ocean Mineral Cleanser. Let me tell you, this has made my skin feel amazing and bring back a glow to my face. Not only does it smell amazing, but it works wonders on me. (Lord knows I need a skin miracle!) If you have sensitive skin, this also works wonders. I highly recommend this face cleanser to everyone!

DON'T..Keep the same washcloth for too long. This one is soo important! After cleaning your face, you don't want to keep using the same dirty washcloth for multiple days. Just thinking about that makes me cringe! Also, I always use specific washcloths for washing my face. I don't want to ruin any of my nice ones I use for guests. You never know if some kind of ingredient will turn your washcloths spotty! That's the worst.

DO..Wash your face before bedtime. Everyone and their mommas have heard this one. It's most certainly not a life or death situation, but it is good for overall skin health. When I'm 60, I don't want my skin to look 100. I want to look like I'm still young! I didn't use to wash my face before bed, because #lazy, but I do now and I've noticed quite a difference!

DON'T..Use too hot or too cold water. The best kind of water to use is warm water. It opens up the pores and allows the skin to get really clean. Plus, no one wants to freeze or burn themselves using the wrong water temp! Just let the faucet run for a few minutes to get the water perfectly warm. Rinse with warm water too, so the pores can close back up!

I used to hate washing my face, but now that it is part of my daily routine I love it. It's so relaxing at the end of the day to wash away all the grime from the day! OZ Naturals Ocean Mineral Cleanser has become a staple of my routine. Washing my face has worked wonders for my skin and that makes me so happy!

  4. My biggest New years resolution was to wash my face every day, not an easy feat!

  5. My skin type is also a weird combination of oily and dry and is also acne prone! I recently started using the Clear Days Ahead gel cleaner by Philosophy and my skin has responded very well. Finally happy to have found a good cleanser.

  6. Gotta try this one since I have combination skin as well, it's so hard finding effective products for it! Thanks for sharing.


  7. I might have to try this face wash. I recently got the Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser and it is bringing the goal back to my face as well! Loving it so far. No acne medicine in it so we will see how it works. Hoping my cysts stay away!

  8. This cleanser seems amazing! I can only use products that are good on sensitive skin, so I may just have to give this one a try :)
