Requested: My Current Clear Skin Care Regimen

I recently got a request for my current skin care regimen. I am learning to make adjustments when I see something is or isn't working for my skin so the regimen I'm sharing is what has been working for me for the past few months. Admittedly, the night portion of this routine takes some time, and it may not work for everyone.  I am not a esthetician or dermatologist, I'm simply sharing what has been working for MY skin.  Use at your own risk and adjust as needed.

Feel free to post any questions you might have in the comments section!  :)

Night Regimen

1.Makeup Removal:  
I fold a Viva paper towel in half twice to make a square and wet with hot water. I use a beauty spoon to scoop out coconut oil onto the paper towel. Because its damp from the hot water the coconut oil will melt. I wipe off my makeup. Rinse the paper towel, fold to a clean section and repeat the process until all makeup is removed. I am currently using 

Better Body Foods & Nutrition Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

2.Cleanse: (I do the cleansing and exfoliating part of this routine in a nice steamy shower to open pores and to cut down on time.)
 I wash my face with Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover.

 I spread Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Anti Bacterial Bar onto my face then sprinkle a little Arm & Hammer Baking Soda on my hand and spread it directly on top the soap on my face (The consistency feels like a paste.) I gently scrub in circular motions to make sure the soap and baking soda mix then I use my Clarisonic PLUS  (with sensitive brush head) on all four quadrants.  I rinse with a washcloth.

4. Nightly Face Mask:
I use an equal part Organic Manuka Honey &  Aloe Vera Gel and spread on my face. I wear for a
 minimum of twenty minutes. The longer the better! 
I currently use Wedderspoon Gold Raw Organic Manuka Honey Active 16+  and Aloe Life Skin Gel .  Rinse with cool water.

5. Moisturize: 
My night moisturizer is a custom mix of face oils.  
I purchased a 1 oz amber glass bottle with dropper to mix my custom face oil in.  

I mixed equal parts of the following ingredients in the amber bottle for my custom face oil:  

Mogador Certified Organic 100% Pure Argan Oil 

Slice Of Nature TAMANU OIL. 100% Pure, Raw, Cold pressed  (I believe the addition of this oil has helped to lighten my acne scars.)

I added four-five drops of Manuka Oil 100% Pure East Cape 
( I will not be using this oil in my next batch of custom oil because I do not like the smell.)

Morning Routine

1: Wash:

I wash my face with Wedderspoon Gold Raw Organic Manuka Honey Active 16+  
(If I have more time in the morning I will allow the honey to stay on my face as long as possible before rinsing it off.)

2:  I moisturize my damp face and neck with Burt's Bees Sensitive Daily Moisturizing Cream.

With my current routine I have experienced far less breakouts, my skin is smoother, and my acne scars have lightened considerably and/or disappeared.

  1. Thanks for sharing your regimen. Your skin is gorgeous! Clear skin definitely makes makeup look so much better. I've been thinking of using oils on my face but my skin is already kind of oily.

  2. Thanks! My skin was super oily too! Now that I wash with manuka honey, remove my makeup with coconut oil, and I use oil to moisturize at night, the oiliness stopped. I think it must have been over producing oil because it was dry.
