I canâ€™t say that I was ever really consistent with my skincare routine before but over the years Iâ€™ve loved Benefit Cosmeticsâ€™ Mint SoufflÃ©, Neutrogena, Amore Pacific, and Origins. Â A few months ago I promised myself Iâ€™d include skincare as a self-care priority and started facial mask Mondays and Fridays. Â More on this in a few. Â My current Origins regimen listed in order after a cleanser or cleanser and scrub consists of a toner or treatment lotion, serum, moisturizer, mist, lip scrub & balm, SPF. Â Most dermatologists recommend applying lighter solutions first and then building towards heavier ones. Â I have combination normal skin with a focus on aging gracefully and my skin can be mildly sensitive. Â It seems like my skin is prone to a pimple or two during stressful times, usually around my nose or chin area. Â I admire Origins for theirÂ commitment to help offset carbonâ€¯emissions, combat climate change, and restore ecosystemsâ€¯through their global tree-planting initiatives. Â I also love to add relaxing facial acupressure to my routine and plan to add the use of guasha and dry-brushing my body regularly. Â My current facial routine is about 10-15 minutes because I donâ€™t want to rush through, especially not at night. Â I use Drink Up every Monday night and Friday night as an overnight mask and use any extra on my cuticles. Â I have included some of the prices but check on Origins for the rest. Â They have a great customer service who patiently answered all my many questions.
