I think everyone has its own beauty secrets. I know I have mines. I love using homemade beauty recipes, but I also love buying good skincare products.
Today I decided to talk about what I buy to use as skincare.
I figured it would be helpful to share with you a little bit of my daily and weekly Beauty Routine.
Being that I have had skin issues since I was a teenager, dealing with acne and rosacea at the same time, I think that makes me sort of an expert in this matter. Adding the fact that I have always been obsessed with aging the right way, therefore, I have been using anti aging products forever.
I am going to first divide my skincare routine in two: Daily Routine and Weekly Routine.
Then I am going to subdivide it in Mornings and Nights. Like that, it will be easier to show you what do I do which each product.
So here are my favorite skincare products that are part of my beauty secrets!
My Beauty Secrets ♥
I use a cleanser to clean my face. My favorite is Gentle Cleansing Cream from Shiseido. I also love the Liquid Facial Soap Tube from Clinique.

It comes in 3 different skin-typed formulas. I use mine MILD (2), because I have a dry combination skin. $14
After that, I first apply Lancôme TONIQUE CONFORT – Comforting Rehydrating Toner, then the Essence Facial Serum from Adore Organic Innovation. Then I moisturize my face with Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream or Crema S Nourishing Moisturizing Cream from Pond’s.
A silky-soft moisturizing toner that gently purifies and immediately rehydrates complexion. $25

I also apply an Eye Cream to my eyes every night. I use:
It diminishes the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and fine lines. $40
Saturdays are my spa days! I do my hair, my nails, bleach my teeth and treat my skin. 😀
I exfoliate my skin once a week; some people do it more often. I use Gratiae Exfoliating Salt Scrub for my face, even though it could be used on your whole body. But for my body I use my own Homemade Organic Body Scrub.
A salt scrub that exfoliates and cleanses the skin. It accelerates blood circulation and leaves your skin refreshed and soft. $59.99
Lakshmi’s Temple Homemade Organic Body Scrub
A rich blend of real Brown Sugar with Organic Coconut and Essential Oils. $14.99
Soon after, I either do a Mask or a Peeling. I like to alternate weeks, meaning one week I do a mask, then the next one I do a peeling.
My favorite masks are Essentials Pore Cleansing Masque from Artistry and also THE SKINCARE Purifying Mask from Shiseido. I have been using both for years.
A mineral clay masque that helps control oil and shine, and noticeably reduces the appearance of pores. $23.40
A creamy, rinse-off facial mask formulated with Marine Mineral Clay to absorb dulling surface sebum and impurities. It exfoliates and softens the skin. $30
My favorite Peeling is:
A peeling that exfoliates dead, dull surface layers, and stimulates the process of cell renewal among all skin layers, to reveal healthier cells. $75
And on Saturday Nights I apply the following combo before going to sleep under and around my eyes:
It deeply hydrates and rejuvenates your eyes concealing fine lines and dark circles, and lifting and tightening your skin. Awesome product! $450
It refreshes your appearance, hiding signs of aging and stress. I love it! I have seen great results using this. $450
So this is basically my beauty routine guys! As you can see I am very devoted to my skin care.
These products have worked for me for a longtime now, so I know they are excellent, therefore I recommend them 100%.
I hope this post could help some of you improve your skin and maybe obtain the results that you are looking for.
