My Skincare Routine Sensitive Skin
I wanted to share with y’all my current skincare routine. I have struggled with acne since I was a teenager and then in my twenties, I started to have eczema around my nose and chin. My face was always blotchy no matter how much makeup I used. I tried so many skincare products, Proactive, drugstore cleanser, all-natural products, I even made my own essential oils cleanser.
Through trial and error, I have finally found a skincare routine that works for my sensitive skin. Now, the only time I have a bad acne breakout or eczema is when I’m stressed, that time of the month, or when I eat poorly for a long period of time.
First thing in the morning, when I’m brewing my coffee, I use my ice roller. It’s a great way to wake up your skin and reduce redness. Then after I have completed the majority of my morning routine and finish my workout, I rinse off and wash my face.
I use my facial brush to wash my face in the morning. It has three different cleansing brushes. A gentle scrub, exfoliating scrub, and a silicone scrub brush. It leaves your skin feeling soft and clean. I use It Cosmetics cleanser.
At night is when I shower. Instead of using makeup removing cloth, I double cleanse. The reason for that is removing cloths leave a residue and cause my skin to breakout.
The first cleanser I use is gel-to-cream. It goes on thick and when water is applied it becomes creamy. I use a hot washcloth to remove the cleanser and makeup, but you can use just your hands and water. After removing my makeup, I use my It Cosmetics cleanser.
Once I am out of the shower, I apply my eye cream. I started using this eye cream about 2 months ago and am blown away by the results. It reduces dark circles, puffiness, and lines. Plus it’s under $15!
After my eye cream, I apply face oil. This stuff is amazing! It reduces dark spots, acne scars, redness, and gives your skin a healthy glow. Once my face oil has set into my skin, I apply my moisturizer.
More Skincare Products
Skincare products can be pricey. I use It Cosmetics because it works well for my skin, but I understand that it is not in everyone’s budget. That is why my current eye cream and moisturizer are Honest Beauty.
However, if you are interested in using IT Cosmetics products, I recommend THIS moisturizer with the cleanser. I love their moisturizer more than any other brand I’ve ever used. I highly recommend it!

Other tips for healthy skin
- Drink at least 64 ounces of water. I highly recommend Summit Water Bottles they come in a variety of designs and sizes. I have a 32 oz that I try to refill it 3 times per day.
- Eat Cleaner ingredients and less processed foods.
- Check the ingredients in your makeup products. I am allergic to Talc. It breaks me out severely. If you are struggling with acne, try cutting it out of your products for a month and see if it makes a difference.
