skin care routine | cruelty-free


 A lot of things change when you move out and I've been working towards taking better care of my mental and physical health. Self care is highly important and skin care is a big part of it. I didn't follow a proper skin care routine during the summer. This caused my skin to suffer and break out all over the place. I started doing my research on cruelty-free skin care brands and settled for several products that I believe have worked for me and my skin.

Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser: 90% naturally derived and gentle on my skin, I'm glad to have found a face wash that doesn't dry my skin. I use it once a day, two if I wore make-up.
Nip + Fab Skin Glycolic Scrub: By far my favorite product at the moment. I use it once to twice a week. This scrub exfoliates my skin and cleans my pores out thoroughly. I am glowing after every use.
Alba Botanica Even Advanced Moisturizer: This moisturizer is super lightweight and contains 100% vegetarian ingredients. I walk everywhere now and my skin needs maximum protection against the sun. Moisturizers are a must in general, they help correct uneven tone and prevent discoloration.
So Fresh So Clean Charcoal Cleansing Nose Strips: I've been using nose strips since middle school and peeling the strip off and seeing all the dirt and blackheads is still the grossest and coolest thing ever. I'd been looking for cruelty-free nose strips and with luck found these charcoal ones. I use a strip every other week.
