My HONEST Morning Skincare Routine For Combination, Acne Prone, Sensitive Skin


hey everyone and welcome back to my
channel my name is Sarah and today I am barefaced, because I’m going to be taking you through my current skincare routine this evolves regularly and it
does vary based on morning versus night this is kind of like a combination
of the two, because it is mid-day during my sons nap and I’m taking full advantage of
that by doing this routine right now I’ll be sharing it with you.
My son is one and a half years old If you’re new to my channel, please be sure to subscribe to see more of my daily life, blogs, mom video ideas such as mom hacks and that sort of thing as well as lots and lots of recipes,
because I am a trained chef oh and I just wanted to let you all know that this hijab is from modest behaviour it’s their ripple – I think. Yeah, ripple hijab. It’s in blush pink type color It’s beautiful the hijab tutorial.
I also followed is on modest behaviour instagram, which I will link somewhere on this
screen, if you’re interested in these hijabs. You can always use my code “cool10”
and you’ll save 10% off extra at checkout she always has sales going on and
you can use my code and combination this is not sponsored.
I just like a deal. I bought a whole load of ripple scarves recently
and I’m going to share them with you right now you have to see these. these are the ripple hijabs that I got recently.
This one’s like a burgundy I have a gray-ish blue one here, brown
one and this is my favorite color it’s “spice” I will be wearing this a lot in
the upcoming fall and winter vlogs you’ll see these three colors probably the most.
I wear them in the chiffon as well which everyone asks me about those
are also from modest behaviour I love chiffon. Chiffon is so low-maintenance
and it’s a must if your mom you don’t have to iron them.
You can wash them regularly I actually watched a hijab routine recently where one of the hijabis was showing like a specific how she takes care of her hijab routine.
I don’t have time for that. I just shove it all in the dish-
haha no, in the laundry together I don’t like do anything prim and pamper.
I don’t pamper my hijabs at all and they come out beautifully every time.
So if you’re like me and you just want to wear something regularly and still
have it look amazing I would check out that website.
Now you may be wondering “why is her hijab styled like that?” It’s just because I don’t want to get anything on my scarf today I have a tutorial for this specific hijab,
minus the ears. which I do actually wear during my routine.
I don’t wear hijab during my current skincare routine because I also like to do my neck and my ears.
So I won’t be doing that during this routine because obviously it’s tough to show you that but just know that anything that I do to
my face I also do to my neck and to my ears and I also try to bring to the back
of my hands as well because those all show signs of aging quite early.
My specific routine is obviously catered to my skin which is acne prone and sensitive.
I also go between combination to oily like combination skin, sometimes
I have oily skin sometimes I have super dry skin it depends on the weather and
just my hormones so I am having a bit of a breakout That you can see and I’m going
to show you guys what I do to kind of combat those because I do tend to get over breakouts pretty quickly.
I have a lot of experience with acne Tune in, I’m gonna show you all what I do to get the most out of my skin and to make sure that I don’t get any scarring I just put some water on my skin,
because I’m going to start with my cleanser I just received this cleanser from Fresh and I have to say I’m really obsessed with it I love changing cleansers. I have so many I tend to rotate between cleansers morning versus night I like this cleanser as well by La Roche Posay.
I think it’s really gentle and it’s a foaming gel I don’t like foaming as much when my
skin is dry. I use it more when it’s oily. I also have the Burt’s Bees cleansing bark cream.
This one’s nice, but I find it has a bit of a tingly sensation. And I think that’s because it has menthol in it. So when you have any menthol in a product.
It might give you a tingly feeling I’m on the fence with this one,
but I do think it helps with pore size Those are the cleansers that I use And I also have a Shiseido cleanser somewhere here. Which is also a really good one. Right now, I’m using this soy cleanser by Fresh.
It’s rich in amino acids and it has cucumber in it. It smells like cucumbers. I apply that onto my Clarisonic Mia with a sensitive brush. I’m just going to use that on my skin. and what I like about the Clarisonic is
you can hear that the Clarisonic vibration it’s not a heavy exfoliating brush.
It does a real good job of cleaning your pores. I cleanse my skin, even when I don’t have any make up on. So first thing in the morning, I still cleanse. My face is turning red right away, because I have very sensitive skin. This is the sensitive brush head. I’m not going hard with this. I’m just sensitive.
Any redness that I have, does settle quite quickly. Almost anything will turn my skin red.
This is not harsh at all. I’m going to quickly go through it. I’ll show you the next part of my routine. So, I just gently dried my skin.
I know that I could be doing a double cleanse The thing is, I haven’t really tried an oil-based cleanser or a cleansing oil to be more specific I just haven’t tried any. If you can recommend a good cleansing oil in the comments, please do so! because I am very interested in doing a double cleanse.
I just completely fail about it this is a water-based cleanser this would be used as a
second step and a double cleanse I love this one. I think it’s really nice. It’s
very gentle. It has cucumber in it and it’s soy based, because I actually am
sensitive to dairy and dairy tends to break me out even when I use it topically. So as sad as that is, I found that this is actually really good alternative I’ll link that in the comments for anyone who’s interested they sent this to me as a gift
and I’m completely digging it now usually I’d go right into my skincare but since my son’s napping I’m gonna go
ahead and do a mask It’s called, Nyure Beauty and their
products. Hopefully you can see that. I’ll try to get a clear image Nyure Beauty is a really a nice company,
because it’s ethically sourced their products are mainly organic and a lot of their products are also non-toxic, cruelty-free and vegan That’s a really nice combination. This one in particular, is rose clay, rasool and pomegranate as the ingredients.
Pomegranate is a really good ingredient in this because it’s a very powerful antioxidant.
It has something in it called, punicalagins – I believe that’s what they’re called, which is one of the strongest forms of antioxidants versus red wine or green tea pomegranate is the strongest.
Another really nice thing is that it has rose in it which is always soothing and anti-inflammatory
This is a peel mask. So what you do is.. it comes in a pouch.
Let me see if I have a pouch here it comes in a pouch like this and
then it has this cute little wooden spoon how adorable so you can measure
out all that and then you do equal parts water in a glass or ceramic bowl.
You can also use this as exfoliant and it will brighten your skin and I usually would
go all around on my face. Avoid the under-eye area, because this is a very
potent mask. It’s strong, even though it’s natural I think a lot of people think, that natural equals weak and that’s not the case with this mask at all I think it’s really strong, but it doesn’t have any strong smell, which is nice because I think fragrance in products I’m kind of on the fence about them,
but the Fresh one had its own natural scent because it didn’t didn’t have an added fragrance.
It was just the cucumber itself giving it that smell because it contains actual cucumber gel in it,
so I like that Now that I look kind of crazy…
I would have typically, like I said gone all across but I really don’t want to mess up my hijab right now especially on video. So I’m gonna let this
dry for at least 20 minutes and then I’ll be back to wash it off and continue
my routine. I’m back and my mask is pretty dry.
It’s been about 20 minutes – that little gremlin sound you hear is my son he did wake up from his nap, figures
that on the day that I need to record he wakes up early What you gonna do? Mom life
So, you can see it’s clay-based it completely dried. I love this yeah it’s
actually not really uncomfortable feels like I can still kind of move my face a bit.
it’s a little bit stiff obviously because it’s clay and now I’m gonna wash it off
and show you what it looks like and then I’ll move on to the next part of my
routine just washed my face. You can see there’s a
little bit of redness. It was a little bit more red but it’s actually cooling down quite fast. It’s because it has something in it called, punicic acid which is a CLA it’s a conjugated linoleic acid.
It is a form of exfoliant. It is a natural exfoliant and is not a physical exfoliant. When you have acne prone skin you don’t want to use a physical exfoliant unless it’s something like this, which it is a silicone facial brush you can also use this on your baby
for cradle cap as a gentle exfoliant that to also exfoliate or
add another layer of exfoliation to my face when I wash off the mask and then I pat
dry and it’s a little bit red, but it’s not irritated at all it’s not itchy, I have no issues.
It is gonna go down in redness it’s just because it has got the acid in it
and I will link them in the description below for those interested in a natural or
organic type product Now, the next product I have is an essence.
This is the Fresh black tea kombucha essence this was gifted to me as well with the cleanser
and I just started using it as you can see I’ve barely made a dent and I’ve been using it for a week because you only need a couple drops I like to put a couple drops, like this, into the palm of my hand and see still barely even made a dent in there I just kind of tap it right onto my face.
I never tried one before now and I’ve been missing out
essences are a smaller molecule than toner so they penetrate skin deeper and
that’s really important depending on the type of problem that you’re trying to
fix for anti-aging that’s a big one you want to get as deep into the skin as
possible. I’ve tapped it all in and it feels so good. Smells amazing. It smells like black tea it just has the smell of the tea, because that’s what it’s made with this one says age-delay and anti-pollution on it.
You usually use your essence to help your serums absorb better.
I wanted to use my toner, which is currently this one and I’ve almost finished it, because I’ve made
quite a dent in this. I use it alot. it’s a thermal micellar water.
I use it as a toner. I’m just gonna put a couple drops this one has a little bit of alcohol in it.
It’s gonna hopefully treat some of this acne on my face it has a very light scent I don’t really know how I feel about alcohol in toners. I think my next toner will not have alcohol in it.
Even though it is great for acne. I just think that it’s kind of drying on the skin and as winter approaches my skin gets really dry Something that I like to add in, is this.
It’s by La Roche Posay it is a cream for face and eyes it says its toleriane, it does not contain any preservatives which is I think pretty cool they preserve this product by having it vacuum sealed, which you can see and I’ve also made a big dent into this one.
I use it every day and what I do is I mainly use it on my eyes. I’m just gonna go ahead and you can actually use this product on your eyelid unlike most eye cream products.
I tend to just dab it gently as gently as I can. I’m a little rough I need to be a little more gentle, to be honest, but I try to be gentle the next thing I’m gonna use right now is
my hyaluronic acid. I use this one by Esthederm.
It’s also almost done, so sad I think I’ll buy more,
but I put a couple pumps of that onto my ring fingers and then I also massage that onto my face upwards
and I tend to focus on the spots that might be prone to lines between my brows. My smile lines,
because those are quite prominent with my cheekbones and then just here to avoid the crow’s feet around the eyes. I don’t get too much by my eyes because I already put that other lotion there,
but hyaluronic acid is really important. It’s a humectant. It penetrates the skin
also deeper than anything else now, the next thing that I like to use is this.
I have a sample of the Shiseido lifting emulsion just got a little bit of a sample. It really goes a long way.
I mostly put the hard cheeks because I want to lift my cheeks.
Anytime I put any product on I lift upwards if you were gonna put any type of treatment on at
this point, especially for acne. I would put it on at this point,
before you put your moisturizer on Now, the next product that I’m gonna use I don’t currently have a (vitamin C) serum. Otherwise I would be using a vitamin C serum right now. I’m out and I have some more ordered but pretend I use a serum now.
The next product I like to use is a moisturizer. I like this one right now by Hyfac.
It’s just a straightforward moisturizer. sometimes that’s all you need. Like, you don’t need anything super special about the moisturizer this one I like. It does not – it’s non comedogenic. So it doesn’t block my pores. Very important for acne prone skin. You want to try to find products that say non-comedogenic you don’t want products that are gonna fit in your pores and just kind of break you out further you really want to try
and keep your skin as clear as possible. Especially since we worked so hard to clean it with the Clarisonic and all these other products like the mask I am going to be putting on an SPF. You should always wear SPF whether it’s raining or it’s shining wear SPF even at night.
If you’re going out at night wear sunscreen and I know it sounds crazy, but sunscreen
is the best thing you can add to your skincare routine you don’t have to have a complicated one, like I do.
I just like skincare for me, it’s really fun. You can have it straightforward. You just need to cleanse. You need to use some kind of serum I would use a vitamin C serum and then you want to make sure you’re
using an SPF and if you want to use an SPF moisturizer then that cuts your skincare to just three steps and that’s really all you need again as SPF is the best anti-aging product you can buy.
Especially when you’re young. The best way to get rid of wrinkles to not get them
and you can postpone them by protecting your skin from the most damaging thing which is the sun. try your best to wear sunscreen.
Now, the one I use is just this Neutrogena ultra sheer one and
I’m not a huge fan of it it’s kind of greasy to be honest and you can already tell that, but
I’m just the type where I have to use it up I don’t want to throw it out
is that?… yeah that’s… I don’t like to be wasteful and I also want to include in my skincare routine, because I do this every day is my eyelashes I swear by this and this is a big jug because I use a lot of castor oil it is
a skin softener, but it’s when it’s cold pressed like this you can use it on hair and lashes and it really does help. I think this is one of my best secrets for eyelashes I put just a little bit like that on a qtip. I just kind of dab it on the lash line, gently I’m not – I’m really not pulling at all.
You don’t want to tug your lashes. you don’t want to tug your eyes, especially. you just want to dab dab dab see here look these are my natural lashes look I got it cut there by accident with my eyelash curler looks like they’re fake lashes, because
of the gap, but I’m not My lashes got cut. I’m so sad,
but they will grow back inshallah also like to take biotin and I’ll link the one that I use below. It is a vegetarian one and does it work? Yes it does.
Honestly. I like to put a – just this is the… I’m so bad at this.
I’m not a beauty youtuber, obviously. because I’m not showing you. this is the Nivea hydro care lip balm.
Really important to moisturize your lips now, I’m going to apply my makeup,
because I am going out today I’m just doing a very light makeup today.
I’m going to the park with my son it doesn’t have to be anything fancy,
but I’m gonna do a very quick mom makeup that’s all for today’s video. If you like skincare videos and want to see more from me please be sure to click the like button
and let me know in the comments what you’d like me to try as far as skincare.
I’m always down for trying new products another product that Nyure beauty sent me was this.
Which is their rose hip black seed oil The black seed is really good.
That is really good for anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial anti-aging, because it’s an antioxidant so it’s really great.
I use this at night. I do not use it during the day look at the bottom.
You can actually see the black seed oil and how it mixes with the argan, jojoba and rose hip oil of this products I just give it a shake.
I apply this at night, not during the day because I think it’s a little bit heavy for during the day.
At night I use it and I apply it with this product you can see yourselves – tada!
but it’s like a wand and it has heating and cooling ions and
I use that to kind of do a lymphatic massage at the end of the day,
but that’s all I wanted to talk about skincare I hope you guys enjoyed this video.
If you like chatty get ready with me videos I will be doing more in the future that
