I don’t know about you, but my skin goes through cycles throughout the year and with changes in the weather and seasons. It’s enough to drive me up a wall. One month I’ll struggle with dryness in my t-zone and the next my t-zone is so oily, my glasses are practically slipping off my nose.
It’s been a struggle, but after some careful research and a whole lot of trial and error, I think I’ve finally found the skin care routine to help battle my combination skin and the acne that pops up every now and again. (Isn’t twenty-five too old to get zits and pimples? Sheesh.)
I’ve recently fallen hard for the Burt’s Bees line of natural skin care products. I’ve used their lip balm for years and years, but never ventured into their skin care line and lotions. I’ve been missing out and so has my skin. Thank goodness the natural beauty aisle at Target has basically everything I need– I found all of these products there! (And left Target with so much more… as always!)
ONE | Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil | Say hello to my new favorite facial cleanser. You wouldn’t think oil would be a great cleanser, but using oil to cleanse has helped my skin immensely. My skin is so much smoother, softer, and it doesn’t leave my face oily or clog my pores. You just dispense it into dry hands, gently massage over dry face, wet hands and massage into face more, rinse with warm water and then pat dry. (Learn more about the cleansing oil here.)
TWO | Burt’s Bees Acne Solutions Clarifying Toner | Squirt some of this on to a cotton ball to thoroughly cleanse and make sure you got all that make-up off. This stuff smells great and really cleans deep down in my pores.
THREE | Burt’s Bees Acne Solutions Spot Treatment | I apply this to any pesky zits or pimples that pop up. I had one on my chin that just didn’t want to leave and after one night of using this it was significantly smaller and the following day it was gone! LOVE this stuff!
FOUR | Burt’s Bees Sensitive Daily Moisturizing Cream | This moisturizing cream is thick enough to really moisturize without being so thick it makes your make-up oily throughout the day– you know what I mean, right? It’s the perfect consistency. Just make sure you use it all over your face, neck and chest– daily skin care 101 to help prevent wrinkles!
I have a feeling that this is going to stand the test of time… and the test of the seasons… with my crazy skin!
