The first thing I always do is put my hair up in a bun so it’s not in the way and then I take my unscented Neutrogena makeup remover wipes and I just remove all my makeup.
To actually clean my face, I use a Neutrogena Naturals purifying facial cleanser and my Clarisonic. I have the radiance brush head on my Clarisonic which basically helps make my skin shiny.
What I do is I just wet the brush and then since the pump on my soap is broken I just kind of take it out and put the soap on the brush head before I use my Clarisonic. I always wet my face and then I just go right in with it and I wash my face with it and so it’s up basically with a Clarisonic. It has a built-in timer so it just stops moving whenever you should stop. Then I just rinse my face off with water again and I always pat dry using a towel.
Instead of a like traditional moisturizer, I always use my Josie Maran Argan oil. I just like the way it makes my face feel and how it makes it look so much more radiant. I just put a few drops in my hand and then I smooth it all over my face.
So I have a few more tips for you guys. Definitely number one is to drink water. I am huge water drinker I try to drink about the equivalent of four to five water bottles in a day. It depends on your weight how much you should drink but you can easily find that online by looking it up. This has cleared my face up so much and it just helps everything in general.
Also always wash your face after removing your makeup no matter how much you think the makeup wipe is getting off. There’s always makeup left over and if you just ignore that you’re going to be going to sleep at night. With so much makeup on your face that you don’t even know is there, I do this every single night no matter how lazy I am and number three is always moisturize after you wash your face.
Even if you have oily skin you still need moisturizer, I think that if you don’t use moisturizer and you have oily skin it actually makes it even earlier because your skin tries to make up for the lack of moisture by creating more oil. Number four is to exfoliate if you struggle with like textured skin or if your skin gets dry and crusty. This is definitely the key to getting clearer and more smooth skin you don’t want to be exfoliating every day but more like two to four times a week.
I would say and just give your skin a break in between you can use a facial scrub or something like a Clarisonic to exfoliate your skin. Just make sure you’re moisturizing afterwards I have seen such a huge difference in my skin ever since I started exfoliating when I look back on old pictures before I exfoliated I literally cringe because my skin looks like a mountain range.

My last tip is to always wash your face twice a day. It sounds like a huge commitment for some people because I know we get lazy but once you get into the habit of doing this everyday you’ll actually want to do this and it won’t feel like a chore anymore. I wash my face every day when I get up and every day before I go to bed and this has cleared out my skin so much. You don’t realize how much bacteria you’re getting on your face just from laying on your pillow at night and then collecting it all back on your face throughout the day so it’s really good to wash those in the morning and at night and push yourself to do this even if you feel lazy.
