“Skincare is a finicky thing because I have sensitive, combination/oily, blemish-prone skin. What I've learned is there is definitely such a thing as using too many products and over-doing it, that paying attention to ingredients is important for my sensitive skin.”

  • Environ-Botanical Infused Sebu-Wash Gel Cleanser

    This cleanser was one of the recommendations [my aesthetician] made. It is mild and foaming, removes makeup and cleanses in one clean sweep, and has some salicylic acid in it to address my oily and blemish-prone skin.
  • Beautycounter-Countercontrol All Over Acne Treatment

    What I want to target most in my treatment layer is the blemish-prone aspect of my skin—I've always broken out in small patches here and there, but after getting an IUD insert about 6 months ago, I was breaking out more frequently and consistently. This has been the one product that feels gentle on my face, dries up my oily spots, minimizes breakouts, and brings my skin to a better balance.
  • Beautycounter-No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil

    Another struggle with my skin has been hyperpigmentation, largely in part because of blemish scarring and skin sensitivity. One of the many wonders of Vitamin C in face oils is its ability to even out skin tones. It's moisturizing without being too heavy, smells divine due to the citrus oils, and has definitely started brightening out my complexion while fading scars. I totally get all the adoration for this serum!
  • Jade-Roller
    STEP

    I have to also say that I jumped on the jade roller bandwagon, and it has honestly contributed greatly to me getting the most out of this serum. I dab a drop on all four of my pointer fingers, rub them into my other four fingers, and then dab them all over my face and neck. Then I pull my jade roller out of the freezer and roll the serum in for a couple minutes.
  • Fresh-Floral Toner
    STEP

    As I said, I have oily skin, so while I don't need this year-round, fresh spritzes of hydration do keep my skin from getting too dull and tight in this super cold New England weather. Heat pumping at work and home all winter long is also very drying on my skin, so spritzing this on my face when needed helps refresh it.
