Summer Skin Care Routine

When my diet went down the tubes, so did my skin. I’ve always had fairly easy skin, even as a teenager, so when my skin started breaking out, drying out, and basically just being crappy in general I had NO idea what to do. I dug through all of my fave beauty bloggers sites and reached out for a few via Instagram. What a cool freaking community the blogging world is.

I heard back from one of the beauty gurus of the world, Jamie! She was soooo sweet and talked through all of my skin issues with me, and helped develop a plan to get my face back. She introduced me to the brand, Drunk Elephant! Well initially it was appealing because elephants are my fave, and a drunk elephant? Sign me up. The brand is an investment to say the least. And I can tell you right now I was not ready to spend $90 on a night serum without trying it first. Can you imagine being stuck with a $90 bottle of product you hate? No ma’am.

BUT. Drunk Elephant has a solution for that! Their Little’s Kit! It’s like a skin care starter kit with everything you need to get going on your new routine. I was super intimidated by the kit at first because I felt like I was putting a million things on my face all at once. But reality is that it only takes me about 15 extra seconds every morning, and night. AND. It’s so worth it. A major bonus is that you only need one pump of each product, so even though the bottles are really little in the kit (hence the name) they last a wicked long time. Which is great because you really need to give a new routine a few weeks to really start seeing results. This happy little routine has done wonderful things for my skin. Here’s what I use:

AM:
1. B-Hydra: This is like a boost of hydration for your face!
2. C-Firma Day Serum: Keeps my skin glowing all day.
3. Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil: This is where the magic happens I SWEAR. This little facial oil has helped clear up my skin and even out my tone.
4. Shaba Complex Eye Serum: This little bottle will last you FOREVER. You need a quarter of a pump a day. It has tightened up my under eye significantly, so my makeup doesn’t crease at all anymore!
5. Lala Retro Whipped Cream: Talk about a luxurious moisturizer. This shit is the real deal and a little goes a long way. It’s soooo light and fluffy so it doesn’t feel heavy on your skin.

PM:
1. B-Hydra
2. T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum: I can’t believe I lived this long without this stuff. Talk about overnight results. My best friend (who I roomed with my freshman year of college) and my husband will both tell you when I wake up in the morning I am soooo puffy and splotchy, but after using this serum before bed, my skin is so much brighter and less puffy first thing in the morning.
