How I Build My Skincare Routine | 2018

I’ve been recently getting so many questions about how to build a skincare routine from new skinthusiasts, so I figured this would be a great time to revisit and update the steps I take in my routine!

This routine does not include Retinoids which will be a separate video.

* Ok wow. I only JUST realized I completely left out the sunscreen portion of this video while editing. It is in my Instagram video post though. I’m not sure how that happened but I’m blaming it on my bubble-head. I will include the sunscreen used in “Products List”. Sorry!!
