My Skin Care Routine



Can we just talk about adult acne for a second....oh my goodness do I hate this stuff. I have never had to deal with acne until I was in my 20s, and I feel like no one prepared me for it. Everyone always says acne is for teens, and it usually goes away when you are older. Well, I have the opposite experience, and it has made me feel like a crazy person. Most of the acne products are geared toward teenagers, and they were not working very well for me. After being frustrated for awhile I turned to the internet and realized that apparently adult acne is a THING that other people struggle with it too. So I tried many different products (including natural remedies too) and tools with some success, but not what I was promised. Nothing was a cure-all item. 

With all of that being said, I have found a new favorite skin care line that has really made a difference called OSEA, which stands for Ocean, Sun, Earth, and Atmosphere. How cool is that? OSEA is vegan, gluten free, and biodegradable. Some of the best things that have worked for my skin are the natural skin care items, and this brand proves it. My two favorite items are the Blemish Balm and Ocean Cleansing Milk. On top of having acne, my skin is also sensitive and prone to being dry, so this combination has really helped me. I still do breakout sometimes, which might be in part to my diet (eeek! that is the next thing I need to work on), but I have seen such a huge improvement with these products. I do not like having to do a whole lot in the morning and night for my skin care routine, so these two products are basically it for me. Sometimes if my skin is extra dry I will add a little bit of Argan oil.

One more product that I am raving about lately is the Epic Blend lip balm. This is seriously the best lip balm ever! I don't have to use it as much as the other lip balms that use petroleum jelly as their main ingredient because it is much more moisturizing. I always carry one in my bag now. It is seriously a game changer, so I just had to share it with you. My fave is the Hemp Coconut lip balm. It's smells and feels amazing. :)

I'd love to hear some of your skincare secrets or favorite products, so please share!
