My Morning Skincare Routine - 100% Pure

Hey guys, today I want to talk about my current skincare routine. Before I get started, let me tell you a little about my skin history. I have oily acne prone skin and growing up I was so clueless as to what products I should be using so I just went out and grabbed products from the drugstore that was for oily skin and acne treatments. Only problem about using those products is that it stripped all the oils therefore it made my skin even worse. So fast foward from then to now, I have changed skincare products quite frequently because I never found the right stuff for my skin. I still am looking but for now I think I found the right brand for my skin type.

I have been on the search for an all natural brand and tried some that claims it's 100% natural. Well, when I look at the ingredient list and I see things I can't even pronounce or have no idea what it is, then I don't consider that to be 100% natural. And I really didn't see any difference using those so I ended up throwing them away because 1) I couldn't return them and 2) it either broke me out or it wasn't doing anything for my skin. So let's just say I spent a lot of $$$ trying different brands.

About 8 months ago, a client of mine told me to try 100% Pure. She said it helped her cystic acne tremendously and that it's 100% natural, cruelty-free, organic, free of artificial colors, artificial fragrances, synthetic chemical preservatives and all other toxins. She switched over to their skincare and makeup and was amazed how much it helped her skin. She sold me right then and there. On my day off I headed to the store in San Diego and ended up purchasing a shit ton of skincare products and makeup.

I've been using it for 8 months now and haven't looked back so that's a good sign. I love the way they smell and none of the products broke me out. I love that I know whats in each item and what I'm putting on my face. Their makeup are fruit pigmented so no artificial dyes but it is a little difficult to choose the right color when ordering online. Okay this post is getting a little too long haha, so just go check out their website.

I switch between this and the Kiwi & Pineapple Brightening Cleanser. No particular reason, just like to switch it up. 

I use ACV as a toner because I read that it's great for oily skin. It contains alpha-hydroxy acid which helps break down sebum plugs. Hydroxys remove & dissolve top layers of old dead skin so that helps with a fast cell turnover. ACV has antiseptic properties that reach deep inside pores to kill acne bacteria at the root. It also helps to restore and balance your skin's pH. I use the BRAGG Organic ACV, I think I purchased mine at Trader Joes but you can also click on that link to purchase it from Amazon.

Vitamin C will help brighten skin tone, stimulate cellular renewal and encourage collagen production.

Perfect for dark circles and puffy eyes.

It is moisturizing and helps with my mild case of eczema and it also helps calm the redness on my face.

I rotate between the two. The everywhere stick is thicker and hard to rub into the skin so I put it on right after my moisturizer and it helps break it down a bit. No particular reason why I rotate these two but the stick is great for traveling.

Alright guys, thanks for reading!
