One of the compliments that has followed me for years is, “You have such a nice complexion!”
Some people think it’s a genetic thing, that it all came easy and I was born with great skin and never gets a blemish. Yeah no. You’d just have to take a look at me in middle school and early high school to see that isn’t true.
However, over the years, I learned what helped keep my skin clear and fresh and today I’m going to share those tips with you along with all the products I use regularly!
My ride or die face lotion is the one from Simple with SPF. It’s a bit pricey, so I didn’t buy it the last time I ran out because at the time I was balling on a tiny budget. Instead, I got the Up & Up morning facial moisturizing lotion with sunscreen for normal to dry skin. Which is basically a knockoff of the Simple one. I like it just the same, however, this one smells more like sunscreen than the Simple one. But you also need to use less of the Up and Up one to cover your entire face than you do with the Simple brand.
I’m also a fan of the Bosica cactus water hydrating cream (*I received this product from Influenster to review back in June*). I tried that out this summer and my only complaint was that it didn’t have SPF in it. It also has a very different texture and smell than other lotions. It’s literally made out of cacti so if you don’t like the smell of plants, I wouldn’t recommend it, but that also means it’s super gentle and good for sensitive skin.
