Serums are a step in your skincare routine that you should add and never skip! Serums are light treatments that penetrate deep-in to deliver active ingredients for different skin concerns. These products will contain higher concentrations of active ingredients than moisturizers and creams.Because the formula in serums is very concentrated, you only need two or three drops in the palm of your hand before patting the product into your skin using your fingertips, After cleansing and toning each morning, apply your serum, and then follow with your moisturizer and sunscreen while At night, your routine would go cleanser, toner, serum, and then moisturizer. Depending on your skin type you should look for different ingredients, dry skin look for moisturizing, oily skin types should opt for a lightweight serum that doesn’t have a greasy residue or exacerbate oiliness. No matter what your skin type, try to find a serum containing antioxidants, as they help neutralize free radicals from environmental factors like the sun, pollution, and smoke and also help prevent signs of aging for a more youthful appearance. #skincare #skincareaddict #instabeauty #igbeauty #beauty #beautybloggers #kbeauty #skincarecommunity #shelfie #topshelfie #topshelf #moisturizer #toner #serum #mask #skincaretips #microneedling #facials #steam

Here goes a little secret, Home Facial Steamers!!! They can be a little expensive but so worth it, you see once a week I set the timer for 10 minutes, turn on music and let the magic begin. This is the first step to really enhance the absorption of products to follow which normally would be a Clay Mask or Charcoal Mask anything that will help the size of my pores and skin texture. Here are some benefits to steaming: keeps pores open so it avoids blockage, loosens blackheads, pushes out dirt, sheds dead skin, prevents pimples, kills bacteria and relaxes you. Try it out, you won’t go one week without your at home facial steamer! #skincareroutine #skincare #skincareaddict #instabeauty #igbeauty #beauty #beautybloggers #kbeauty #skincarecommunity #shelfie #topshelfie #topshelf #moisturizer #toner #serum #mask #skincaretips #microneedling #facials #steam

As you know I run away from the sun and sun damage but, I really love glowing and rocking a fake tan. Not every fake tan looks good some can look very orange, very fake, streaky you name it a lot can go wrong with fake tans so I always try to look for ways to have that natural glow. Well look no more ladies I think I have found a new Must! Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream! After getting out of the shower you slather on this pinkish cream that has a mousse consistency smells like vainilla and coconut and you air dry it actually dries fast. The benefits instantly are that it hydrates and illuminates but with 5 days of use which for me I could see it in day 3 I saw a more even skin tone, firmer skin and it actually minimized cellulite! So give it a chance and tell me what you think of it! #skincareroutine #skincare #skincareaddict #instabeauty #igbeauty #beauty #beautybloggers #kbeauty #skincarecommunity #shelfie #topshelfie #topshelf #moisturizer #toner #serum #mask #skincaretips #microneedling

After a long weekend of absence let’s start the week with the right foot! Olehenriksen Banana Bright Eye Cream will brighten and target in an instant fine lines and wrinkles, it is boosted with collagen that firms and hidrates while delivering age-defying results. This was inspired by makeup artists but it actually doubles also as a concealer and for people that don’t know how to apply makeup like me this does wonders as it also has vitamin C that as I have seen overtime it illuminates my eye. Bye, bye dark circles! So a little of this magic goes a long way! #skincareroutine #skincare #skincareaddict #instabeauty #igbeauty #beauty #beautybloggers #kbeauty #skincarecommunity #shelfie #topshelfie #topshelf #moisturizer #toner #serum #mask #skincaretips #microneedling

This has turned into Cleanser week, so here we go with number #3. First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay as you can see I take my pores seriously and this one draws out impurities, absorbs excess oil, and unclogs pores. The red clay and rosemary leaf oil helps purge the skin and absorb excess sebum. I love to use this cleanser after a day out and about when you feel your skin heavy. If you have sensitive or normal skin I do not recommend this cleanser since to be your daily go to but more as a deep treatment for once a week but it is ideal for those of us that have combination or oily skin. #skincareroutine #skincare #skincareaddict #instabeauty #igbeauty #beauty #beautybloggers #kbeauty #skincarecommunity #shelfie #topshelfie #topshelf #moisturizer #toner #serum #mask #skincaretips #microneedling

Continuing with cleansers I have found the Holy Grail of drugstore brand CERAVE Hydrating Facial Cleanser. I use this one with my Clarisonic since it doesn’t irritate my skin, doesn’t clog my pores, retains skins natural moisture since it uses Hyaluronic Acid, and helps restore the protective skin barrier. I will always tell you to invest in your skin but, in this case go for it! #skincareroutine #skincare #skincareaddict #instabeauty #igbeauty #beauty #beautybloggers #kbeauty #skincarecommunity #shelfie #topshelfie #topshelf #moisturizer #toner #serum #mask #skincaretips #microneedling

Everybody has that one brand you know that everything they have will work for you and never fail you, that trusty friend for me it’s Dr. Murad. While I use a lot of their products this deep-cleansing mask is repurchased even before it is finished. It can be used everyday but, it dries me out a little bit so I use it on those days I know I will be out and about and really gives me a matte but luminous effect also minimizing my pores! #skincareroutine #skincare #skincareaddict #instabeauty #igbeauty #beauty #beautybloggers #kbeauty #skincarecommunity #shelfie #topshelfie #topshelf #moisturizer #toner #serum #mask #skincaretips

So this week I am about to start my journey through home microneedling I´ve done my homework read enough articles, seen tons of YouTube tutorials but most important went to my dermatologist for an opinión. So for those of you that don´t know Microneedling is when you use a dermaroller that have needles that measure between 0.2 and 1 mm over areas of the skin. This is great to stimulate collagen production and to increase the absorption of skin-care products. For at home micro-needling use 0.2 or 0.5 don´t go over that! So my dermatologist instructed that I should roll vertically, horizontally, and diagonally over my whole face for no more than two minutes. I will be adding this to my routine three to five times a week. So I should do my whole routine and microneedle after serum and then apply again serum and moisturizer steer away from acids, Vitamin C, Retinol anything that will actually irritate my skin. I am going to start two to four weeks depending how my skin reacts with a 0.2 microneedle and then graduate to my 0.5 I bought both my rollers from Amazon. Wish me luck! I´ll be documenting everthing and leave any questions and tips below! #skincareroutine #skincare #skincareaddict #instabeauty #igbeauty #beauty #beautybloggers #kbeauty #skincarecommunity #shelfie #topshelfie #topshelf #moisturizer #toner #serum #mask #skincaretips #microneedling

When Friday comes I feel my skin a little dull so I have found a magic mask to help me bring glow! Facial Radiance Overnight Mask, as you can see it is used every Thursday to Sunday to make some magic appear. You can use it before or after your moisturizer and serum both ways work wonders! What is your weekend prep? #skincareroutine #skincare #skincareaddict #instabeauty #igbeauty #beauty #beautybloggers #kbeauty #skincarecommunity #shelfie #topshelfie #topshelf #moisturizer #toner #serum #mask #skincaretips

A facial is a skin treatment that cleanses pores, exfoliates away dead skin cells, and treats common skin concerns with a custom mask. We take facials to relax, pamper ourselves, deep hydration, or take care of blackheads. In a perfect world every month a facial would be ideal but, since they are on the pricier side I suggest having four per year if you don’t have severe acne which benefits from facials. Every place has different facials depending on YOUR skin needs so go to a licensed aesthetician and have a consultation before anything else. That great facial your best friend had that made her skin glow will not necessarily be the one your skin needs. So find the one that works for you! skin! #skincareroutine #skincare #skincareaddict #instabeauty #igbeauty #beauty #beautybloggers #kbeauty #skincarecommunity #shelfie #topshelfie #topshelf #moisturizer #toner #serum #mask

Let me just start saying I don´t know anything about makeup I can never do my makeup I always go the less is more route because I don´t know how to do anything elaborate or remotely different from what I do everyday. After that confession I will say that primers are in the gray área for me because I have large pores and a very oily T-zone and to make matters worse I live in a very humid town. Primers can be your best friend or worst enemy to have flawless looking skin I have seen and used them all and this two are my favorite, Emani Perfect 10 Primer Serum and Milk Makeup Blur Stick. What I love about the Emani Perfect 10 Primer Serum $34 it minimizes the apearance of my pores, replenishes nutrients to the skin, protects my skin from enviromental impurities and calms my skin with chamomilles and witch hazel. The Milk Makeup Blur Stick $36 blurs pores proven to minimize the and leave a smoooooth, matte finish, lets skin breathe since it doesn´t silicone. and oil. Both are on the pricier side but,people never skimp on your skin! #skincareroutine #skincare #skincareaddict #instabeauty #igbeauty #beauty #beautybloggers #kbeauty #skincarecommunity #shelfie #topshelfie #topshelf #moisturizer #toner #serum #mask
