My skincare is generally the same throughout the year even in different seasons. However, in the summer or winter, my skin is generally more oily or dry. Of course, in the summer, I tend to be more oily so I changed up my routine to accommodate that.

You can check out my earlier routine here.

Side note: If you want that bag, go to my shop at ! It’s a fishnet bag 🙂

Like any other beauty article I’ve written, I will tell you my skin type because everyone’s skin is different so my routine is not going to work for everyone. My skin type is combination to oily as well as acne prone skin. My skin is very difficult to work with sometimes with the changing seasons but I found that this season isn’t too bad lol.

Let’s get into it.

1. Garnier Micellar Water (Blue Bottle)

Before I do anything, I remove my makeup with Garnier Micellar Water with reusable cotton face pads. You can read my article and review on reusable cotton pads here.

This is a good makeup remover for sensitive skin. I’ve tried the other bottles like red and green but nothing works as well as the blue bottle haha.

2. Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser for Normal to Oily skin

Then I go in with my favorite Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser and wash off any residual makeup on my face.

Make sure wash your face as gently as possible. The key to taking care of your skin on your face is to make sure you don’t try to rub your skin excessively. This will prevent premature aging as well.

3. Jamaican Castor Oil By Shea Moisture

After that, I use the Jamaican castor oil. Just a small bit of it and rub it into my hands to create friction (make sure your hand is clean). Then pat it over my face gently.

4. Rosehip Oil

I go over that thick castor oil with rosehip oil. Rosehip oil is a lighter oil and it’s also a great source of Vitamin A. This complements the castor oil really well so that served my skin well too.

I hope this article helped you with your skincare endeavors!!
