My Weekly Facial Routine!

Hey everyone! My new video is up and I hope you enjoy it! As you can see, I am 100% au natural in this video, not a drop of makeup on! It feels really nice to do a video without makeup since most of you guys think my skin is 100% perfect, I want to show you that I do have breakouts and uneven skin tone as well, although my skin has improved tremendously since doing these facials. We sometimes fool ourselves into thinking we should look like we do with makeup on but that's just unrealistic. Foundation is like magic and we all love it, but we should also enjoy our natural skin as well! 



My Facial Routine Summarized w/ Products Used:

1. CLEANSE
- Neutrogena Deep Pore Cleanser/Mask o
- Acne.org cleanser (http://www.acne.org/)

2. EXFOLIATE 
- Sugar + coconut oil / raw honey

More skin care tips!
  • Avoid wearing makeup whenever possible - let your skin breath
  • Always make sure to cleanse your face properly before bed 
  • Try to wash or change your pillow case every 3-4 days, lots of germs build up on it easily
  • Drink lots and lots of water!
  • Make sure to get your daily dose of veggies & fruit, try juicing!
  • Try to get at least 8 hours of sleep a night
  • Exercise! Sweating helps remove impurities and gives you a nice glow, just make sure to wash your face when you're done 
  • Keep hair out of your face as much as possible, it can irritate your skin
  • Avoid stress! It immediately impacts my face and I can see the breakouts happening - stay positive and do fun things and keep those breakouts at bay 
  • Embrace your skin! Take care of it and don't feel like you always need to cover up, no one is perfect! 

XOXO

  5. Hi, coconut oil is prone to clog pores and causes breakouts. On a comedogenic ranking its a 4 out of 5. it seems to be working for you but i just wanted to tell you so maybe it'll clear all the breakouts once and for all! Love your videos. xoxo

    Hi Annie !! Like a know you speak french then I have a question if you can answer:
    Est-ce que tu utilises cette routine pour tout les jours ( excepté le pmd) ? Même le masque? En tout cas j'ai découvert ta chaine depuis peu et tu es vraiment une grande source d'inspiration et de remise en question ce qui est vraiment génial.
    Et aussi est-ce que cette " Aztec clay stuff" est comme de l'argile verte ou non? Continue comme ça tu es super ! xoxo

  21. Hi Annie! BP is actually very harmful to your skin! When I switched to all organic/natural products, I read a lot about how harmful BP is! It's very effective for treating acne, but the potential effects just are not worth it!

  22. Hi Annie , I was just wondering if the acne.org program worked well for you? I don't really have acne , but food intolerances. So everytime I eat something that contains milk or gluten, my skin breaks out. If I stay clear of these foods they go away, but it takes quite a long time. Do you think these acne.org products can speed up that proccess? Just like you I have very sensitive skin and I get oily on my T-zone...

    Love your videos and blog,

    Lots of love from Belgium,

    Laura Xoxo

  23. My skin seems to be similar to yours. If you are looking for a good powder, I would recommend a simple baby powder. It is so fine and mattifyes your skin for ours, leaving a nice fresh baby smell on your skin:) Your skin will love it.
    Try this! https://www.carlmontpharmacy.com/elidel.html Johnsons baby powder is what I use, especially during summer.
