What is your current facial wash?
In the morning I use a charcoal face wash I recently discovered from Marshall’s. At night I use the Neutrogena hydrating face wash, followed by a toner.
Do you exfoliate?
Yes, I use a physical exfoliant, as well as chemical exfoliant about 2-3 times per week. Exfoliating is so important for healthy, glowing skin.
What brand do you use?
Currently I use the Rodan & Fields microdermabrasion paste for a physical exfoliant. For chemical exfoliant, I use the Rodan & Fields reverse brightening toner in the morning, or the Pixi glow tonic is great as well.
What moisturizer do you use?
In the morning I use the Ulta brand moisturizer with SPF 30- might be changing this soon, it’s almost too mattifying for my skin. At night I use Egyptian Magic or the Dirty Works 8 in 1 miracle cream which is amaaazing and so affordable.
