My Skincare Routine

I have EXTREMELY oily skin. I've tried SO many different products and nothing seemed to work. In high school I had a slight case of acne mostly on my cheeks and chin so I had to deal with that on top of being oily. After tons of trial and error, I finally came up with this combo I've been using for a couple of years now.

The Clinique 3 step system in Type III/IV

I wish I would have discovered this a lot sooner than I did because all of my skin worries would have been over. This system has totally changed my skin for the better. I do this both morning and night. Once my skin got used to it though it totally reacts if I don't wash both times and it will reward me with some kind of blemish, lol. It just reminds to be faithful in washing. Other than that I really love it!!

MAC Microfine Refinisher.

Twice a week (if I remember! ha!) I use this exfoliator. I really like it because the granuals are really small and not extremely harsh on my skin. It gets all that extra nasty stuff off and leaves my skin smooth, soft and feeling extra clean.

Freeman Avocado and Oatmeal Clay mask.

I use this clay mask twice a month sometimes more if I've been lazy with my skin and it needs that extra boost. I love how this feels on my skin it has a little minty feel to it and leaves my skin cool and refreshed after I rinse it off.

MAC charged water in Revitalized Energy.

I only spritz this on in the morning after using my 3 step system to wake me up. It doesn't make a huge difference but I like it.

Well there's my routine I thought I would share. If you have any questions feel free to ask away!

Take Care everyone. =)
