3 Skincare Products You Shouldn't Be Without

Okay, let’s talk skincare.

I make it a priority to take care of my skin.

Not doing so can end in some not-so-pretty results.

Before I get into what I do daily to keep my skin clear, allow me to share a little backstory.

Growing up, I was one of the lucky ones who was spared by the acne stage & I rarely ever broke out, which led to me not doing very much to take care of my skin. Of course, I noticed that some of my friends & other people around me struggled with it, but I didn’t think it was a huge deal because, well, I wasn’t affected by it, so who cares? Right?


I neglected my skin for the longest until, one day, it dawned on me that just because I didn’t have to deal with acne did not mean that I should continue such poor skincare. It would have eventually caught up with me & those not-so-pretty results I mentioned before would have came to life. I decided to make a change for the better.

My skin has always been sensitive (another reason I should have had better skincare) so I had to be mindful of which products I used. After a series of trails & errors, I finally found the perfect combination of face wash, body wash (because yes, you can break out in places other than your face), & moisturizer.

Fast forward to now & there is not a day that goes by that I am not giving my skin some TLC.

Now, I know finding the right products for your skin can be tough; so, I'll share with you the best skincare products I have discovered for my skin. Keep in mind that everyone's skin is different & what works for me may not work for you, but it you will never know until you give it a try, right?

So, this facial cleanser is like my right hand. I can't function without it. I use it everyday, first thing in the morning. It has an amazing citrus-y smell that really wakes you up & makes you feel refreshed. It brightens your skin & gives you a wonderful morning glow. It is also oil free which is a plus, because oil clogs your pores & no one likes clogged pores. Trust me on this one, you have to try it. 

Okay, this was a rather difficult choice because there is another body wash that I absolutely love (Dial, of course) & I used it before I discovered this one. I will discuss it later; but, for now, Himalayan Salt. Yesssss. Let me tell you. This body wash looks good (it's pink, haha), feels good, & smells absolutely amazing. You come out with soft, hydrated skin & there is just nothing better than that. This one is for the books.

If you don't like lotion that makes your skin super oily, then Vaseline Intensive Care is the way to go. It is super light & smells delightful! Putting it on will have you feeling clean & ready to conquer the day instead of like you just weighed yourself down with the heaviest lotion ever. Ew.

You should definitely try these products because they have been wonderful for my skincare. My friends have tried them, my family has tried them, & I live by them. Perfection.

Have you found your perfect combination of skincare products? If so, do share. I'd love to hear what works for you.

Until next time.
