My Daily Skincare Routine

October 19, 2016

It's been over 5 months since my first facial with CPS and I realized I totally forgot to fill you in on my new skincare products and routine. Whoops!

Beauty Routine, Zo Skin Health Offects, Zo Skin products, EltaMD products, facial cleanser

Anywho, even though I still know very little about skincare, makeup, and anything beauty-related really, I learned a lot at CPS about what works and what doesn't with my skin type.

I have very dry skin and deal with eczema which flares up very badly in the fall and winter months. The only product that helps is dermatologist-prescribed. Plus, my skin has always been sensitive to products - from concealer to face wash, lotion and everything in between - and ever since I've been in my 30s, the sensitivity has gotten worse. Sometimes it's so frustrating I won't try new products, but after visiting CPS I finally found a skincare routine that is easy and my skin is responding very well to. It's already looking and feeling better!

Side note: props to the ladies that change their skincare routine for the seasons, because my skin would retaliate and I really can't afford to miss work because I'm embarrassed to be seen in public or answer any questions.

Products I Use

Zo Skin Offects Hydrating Cleanser

Beauty routine, Zo Skin Health Offects Hydrating Cleanser, Facial Cleanser

I received a sample size of this product on my first visit to CPS and after the first time using it, my skin looked and felt so much better. No joke! It's literally the only daily cleanser that helps control my skin issues.

EltaMD UV Daily Tinted Moisturizer

Elta MD UV Daily Tinted Facial Sunscreen, Face Moisturizer

This pale girl was pretty scared at the thought of using tinted moisturizer since I'm not trying to look orange unless it's part of a Halloween costume. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this Elta MD face moisturizer. Somehow, it blends into my skin perfectly, goes on smooth and evens out my skin tone a bit, too. Plus it has SPF 40 in it which gives me extra protection from the sun and that's always a good thing!

My Routine 

Ready to write this down? It's tough to remember.....

Every morning, I cleanse my face with the Zo then apply the Elta MD tinted moisturizer. (If I feel like it, I'll throw on some neutral eye shadow and mascara which rarely happens.) That's it! The CPS tech did suggest that I wash my face before bed as well. Update: I'm still working on that. ;)

I'm also on the hunt for face wipes that I can use to cleanse my face when needed, especially post-workout. I've been using these, but if you have any good recs, let me know in the comments!

What's your skincare routine look like? What are your favorite products?


  1. I have a face wipe rec! ~~~> (Anything of the Say Yes brand is great! I personally really love the coconut, cucumber, and blueberry. I haven't tried the carrot as I used to have a carrot allergy. Boyfriend loves the coconut actually and has taken to using them. He has very dry skin.
