WINTER GLOW: COLD WEATHER SKINCARE ROUTINE

IMG_0496.JPGGrowing up, I had a lot of skin issues; some, like eczema, continue to this day. That’s why I used to want to be a dermatologist (ironically, I never once considered a career in TV as a child, and yet, here we are). Still, caring for my skin became more of a necessity, and I’ve learned a lot about what works best for my ridiculously sensitive epidermis.

Korean skincare is extremely intensive; some women go through twelve or more steps as part of their daily regimen. I probably should make more time for this as an investment into my future aged face, but I’ve been trying to be more diligent about at least the basic steps.

The goal for every woman should be to have lovely skin without makeup, so that it can be used to accentuate – not cover up – features! The other super important part of skincare is proper makeup removal. Because HD cameras catch every “flaw” and require heavier makeup to even show up on-air, I tend to have to wear quite a bit of foundation, blush, and eyeshadow daily for work. It always makes me feel a bit grossed out to wipe all of that off at the end of the night and think about how much would just be caught in my pores if I wasn’t properly cleansing!

To do so, I’ve been using Garnier Micellar Water, which is very cheap at any drugstore, along with Clean It Zero. On top of that, I double-cleanse with two foam cleansers. Very intensive, I know. I also use a black sugar exfoliator once a week and sheet masks when I have time and feel like pampering myself a little bit.

Below, I’ve linked the products I’ve been using and enjoying recently. This is *not* a paid post. Some of these items can get pricey, but skincare is truly an investment worth making.

What’s your skincare routine? I’d love to hear!
