Anyone wanna comment on my routine??

Recommended Posts

I'm 16 years old. I have dry-combo skin. My cheeks and mouth are flakey, while my forehead and chin is oilier. My cheeks and nose are also constantly red. I have sensitive skin. I've been really wanting to take better care of my skin. I've been doing some research and I've come up with this routine for my face. Oh. I get a little bit of acne, but its not bad.

Night

1. Cetaphil Cleanser

2. Neutrogena alcohol free toner

3. Loreal Skin Genesis Deep action night complex

4. Loreal Skin Genesis Eye serum

5. Loreal skin Genesis Complexion Equalizer

DAY

1. Cetaphil Cleanser

2. Neutrogena alcohol free toner

3. Loreal eye serum

4. Loreal ideal skin genesis daily treatment serum

5. Neutrogena combination skin moisturizer.

If you're wondering, I'm using two different moisturizers because I believe the Neutrogena is lighter than the Loreal.

I haven't begun this routine yet. I was wondering if its good before I go waste tons of money.

Please don't say "WAAAAY too much stuff." If you'll look, you'll notice that most are serums/moisturizers-not anything that would strip my skin.

I know that at 16 I don't have wrinkles, but I want to protect my skin and really make it look great.

Any comments? And please tell me if there is a product that might be better. My main concern is redness. Yikes.

Well all in all it looks pretty good but I've been enlightened over the past few days that sensitive acne prone skin usually doesn't like toner! Haha so there's that, you can save a few bucks there if you want. Have you tried all the Loreal stuff before or read up a lot on it?

your skin is so young, you can afford to do less. maybe respect the ph balance save yourself all the trouble and use one good cleanser and one moisturiser. all those products can make the redness worse! i suffer redness and i find things that are soothing to be aloe vera, vitamin E and light hydrating lotions with lavenders oil or chamomile in them.

i should add that by using toners and lots of serums/products you can create a problem. thats generally why people say 'less IS more' try julique or other brands with natural products. you don't need heavy creams at 16. your skin is only 16 years old and has only been walking around on this earth for that time. save all the hassle for when your older and complaining about crows feet and sagging skin!
