Basic Oily & Acne-Prone Skincare Routine and Essentials!

This is one of my most requested videos, so I’m happy to share a Skincare Routine for those with oilier and/or acne prone skin with a few tips and product suggestions. This is actually applicable to ALL skin types, of course adjusted to your own needs. This is a basic preventative skincare routine which addresses sebum control and the prevention of bacteria growth as well as keeping our skin strong and hydrated. Here are some products that I am loving, many of these are Korean products that I’ve been trying out for a while now and find them to be more gentle for problematic skin, hydrating and I love the ingredients! These also work really well for those in humid Summer climates too! Whatever our skin type, we need this in our lives. Whether you are dry/dehydrated/oily/sensitive, this works for you!
