hello hello all of you. I hope you all had an amazing week and are as excited for the weekend as I am. To kickstart this weekend I wanted to share with you all something I’ve been getting a TON of DM’s and questions on and that is my skin. I’ll go ahead and upload a video version on my instagram stories but I thought I would also write this all out for you all in case you missed it or wanted direct links. I’ll make sure to keep this short and sweet, like all my other posts, so we can just get right into it because I feel like there’s a lot.

Alright lets start with a few key rules I always follow in my skincare routine…
+ Don’t ever go to bed with your make-up on. (I literally cant fall asleep because I swear I can feel it on my skin)
+ Sunscreen EVERY day. I use this spray sunscreen that takes me two seconds to put on underneath my make-up.
+ PEEL PEEL PEEL. Peels are my favorite. I use them about once a week to get rid of all my dead skin and keep my skin glowy. I’ll link my favorites below.

Let’s talk morning skincare. I don’t do it. I wake up, put on a serum, jade roll and spray on my sunscreen. Maybe one day I’ll start adding more products but for now I just do what works for me.
So for my cleanser I love the Drunk Elephant Jelly Cleanser. I use it every single night. It’s gentle but gets everything off my face.
Next I go in with a micellar water to get off any remaining make-up and take off the rest of my mascara.
Next is my favorite toner ever. You guys. I will forever purchase this toner. It’s the Glow2OH toner and it has made the world of a difference in my skin in the short weeks I’ve been using it. It’s lifted a ton of my dark pigmentation, smoothed my skin and given me a great base for the rest of my products.
Alright I love my acids. Next I go in with my glycolic night serum from Drunk Elephant (are we shocked?) and use one pump of that all over my skin. tip: use the reminder on the back of your hands to keep them looking young.
Next it’s time for my eye cream. My Drunk Elephant eye cream has *no joke* changed the game. I used to have a single crease under my eyes and I’m not gonna lie it’s still there but it has DRAMATICALLY decreased in the months I’ve been using this eye cream.
Lastly, it’s time for my moisturizer. Drunk Elephant here we go again. I love this polypeptide moisturizer. It keeps my skin moisturized during the brutal Chicago winters.
