Beauty Babble: Beautiful Clear Skin

Your face is a beautiful canvas on display. Why not take good care of it?

I get a lot of questions about my skin care routine and the products that I use. Well, my routine is quite simple, nothing fancy, and no expensive products at all.

As a teenager, I suffered with severe acne. With every new product that I experimented with, my acne became worse. Doctor’s visits didn’t help and my skin was irritated all the time. Thankfully, over the years, my skin changed quite a bit, and my acne cleared up on its own. *Squeals* No medication, no expensive products, just good ole time (a long, long time!).

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser: Cetaphil, yes, Cetaphil! You’ve seen it at all the drug stores, and the shelves are stacked at Walmart, Target and Walgreen’s to name a few. It is a clear liquid formula, with a fresh, clean scent. The company says that it can be used on all skin types. It’s a gentle cleanser that removes oil, and it’s phenomenal at removing my makeup. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and moisturized. The bottle has a handy pump dispenser so you can easily control the amount that comes out. You only need very little to cleanse your face. A little goes a long way. After washing my face the traditional way with my hands,Β I pump a little bit of this product on my facial cleansing brushΒ to finish the cleansing process.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer: I moisturizeΒ my face each day with Cetaphil’s daily moisturizer. It has SPF 50 and it is very lightweight, and non-greasy. Perfect for my oily skin.

What products do you use?

With love,

  1. Whatever you use must be great because you look great!

    Like you, I had acne as a teen too. I stopped having to use treatment for it somewhere around my 35th year. Now, in my 40s I rarely have trouble with my skin, and I am thankful for a clear complexion! I think the simple aging process helped me tremendously. I use two products mainly: Aveeno Clear Complexion Cleansing Bar and St. Ives Apricot Facial Scrub. I use the latter maybe twice a week, if that. And the former I try to use in the morning and at night, but sometimes I’m lazy! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks! Acne is just terrible! I would pray so hard at night for mine to go away. After years of praying, poof, it was gone! A clear complexion is highly sought after from those who suffer with acne prone skin. I get lazy too. Shhh. I’ve used the Aveeno cleansing bar, but stopped for reasons that I can’t remember at the moment. I have a cucumber facial scrub that I used here and there,but it irritated my skin, so I stopped using that too. My skin has an attitude problem most times, so I try to be very gentle and no longer experiment with products.

  2. Love this stuff! I was given Cetaphil for a Christmas gift (from my Mom’s neighbor lol) a few years ago and have loved it since. I occasionally use Dove soap too. To remove makeup or if I’ve been in the elements I use the old school Pond’s cold cream (scoop out-green tub/jar) then I follow up with Cetaphil cleanser + moisturizer! Great stuff!

    • I love it too! How nice of your mom’s neighbor! That was a great gift :).Not only does it work for my skin, but it also lasts a really long time. I’ve seen a lot of youtube reviews on the ponds cold cream, but I haven’t tried it as yet.

    • Wow, I’ve never put honey on my face, although, I’ve heard it is great for softening the skin. I tried lemon juice, and it burned! Ha. I am heavy handed with products so I am sure I used too much. πŸ™‚

  3. For the past few months I’ve been using the Purpose (by Johnson & Johnson) face wash and moisturizer with SPF in it. It has worked wonders and I have less breakouts with my skin. I didn’t know that Cetaphil had a moisturizer with SPF as well. I’ll definitely give it a try.

    • Hi there,

      Glad you’ve seen improvement. That’s great. I actually have that product in my cabinet! That is my backup when Cetaphil is sold out. I stopped using it often because it left my face feeling really dry after I wash. I only use it a few times per year because I stack up on the Cetaphil. But the Purpose facial wash is good and was actually recommended to me by my dermatologist. πŸ™‚
