Over the last couple of weeks I’ve noticed that the texture and overall appearance of my skin has changed…for the worse. I have stubborn breakouts along my jawline and cheeks. Normally, my skin is pretty clear, so this was a red flag for me. I’ve decided that firstly I will eliminate products that are packed with parabens and other chemicals.

Firstly, Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms that may be reading this! I hope you ladies had a wonderful day!
I recently went and picked up a few new products to refresh my spring/summer skin care routine. In the past I had been using the cetaphil system. However, after a looooonnng winter my skin just wasn’t responding the same way that it used to with those products. Now that the weather is finally changing; I’ve decided to try the Avenno Positively Radiant Cleanser & The daily moisturizer with SPF 15. I’ve also included the coconut & hibiscus Shea butter soap by Shea Moisture. So far my skin has been loving this routine. Check out the video here to learn more!
Have any of your ladies ever tried these products? If so, how did they work for you?

1. Exfoliate// Exfoliation is a simple step that is so important in maintaining clear skin. Exfoliation is a way of removing dead skin cells from the surface layer of the skin. I prefer to exfoliate a few times per week ,because as we all know…too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Over exfoliating can lead to dry skin and even more breakouts. Products I use: St. Ives Apricot Scrub or Queen Helene’s Honey & Oatmeal Scrub 3x per week
2. Cleanse// Two times per day I cleanse my face with Cetaphil Daily Cleanser. This step is vital in maintaining clear skin. I’ve been using this cleanser for the past few months and I absoluetly love it. It’s a lightweight oil free product that is very gentle on the skin. I love cetaphil because it removes excess surface oil without stripping the skin of it’s natural oils. This is one of the only cleansing products I’ve every used that doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry. Products I use: Nubian Hertiage Coconut,Papaya & vanilla soap & Cetaphil Daily Cleanser 2x per day
3. Moisturize// I like to apply a cream base moisturizer like the, “Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer”. I use about a quarter sized amount of product all over my face. This product is thick and cream, but it never leaves my skin oily. It’s the perfect moisturizer for my skin. Products I use: Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer 2x per day
4. Protect(optional)// If I’m heading out doors I always apply a liquid SPF. Rather it be in my facial moisturizer or in my makeup. Aiming for SPF 30 or higher will help protect the skin from harmful elements and sun rays. Products I use: Maybelline BB Cream in sheer deep tint 1x per day(click here for the review)
