I know it’s already halfway through August but I refuse to believe that summer is going anywhere soon! I’m ready for apple pies and cozy fuzzy socks but I’m not quite ready to say good-bye to sunny days and beach weather.
I’m not ready for August to be over because that means I will have started graduate school! I’m nervous but very excited to get my M.B.A. going – Basics of Financial Management, here I come. I’m trying to get my life in order before it goes crazy again with school and works next month, and that includes getting my skincare sorted. Because I’ve started breaking out a bit with the stress of getting everything ready this month, my skin has called for a new routine!
The focus of my new routine is efficiency, availability, and of course, budget-friendly. I decided on the AcneFree line, which I picked up from Amazon – talk about the availability of getting it delivered to my door in just two days! Here’s how I designed my routine to fit my daily routine:
In the morning I start with cleansing. This is essential to creating a clean foundation for makeup and means it will be one less thing I have to worry about this fall. I use the AcneFree Advanced Cleansing Duo: this includes the AcneFree Oil-Free Purifying Cleanser and AcneFree Purifying Facial Cleansing Brush, which helps clear blackheads and acne breakouts and gently deep clean pores. I like this duo because having a kit makes treating my acne-prone skin much, much easier.
And then the second half of my routine is at night, right before I go to bed. I do this step after brushing my teeth, and I even keep this in my nightstand so I have no excuse! I use the AcneFree Daily Skin Therapy Complexion Perfecting Cream to renew and rejuvenate my skin. This continuously releases retinol through the night so I wake up fresher and hopefully a little less stressed!
