Hey everyone, I hope the upcoming Christmas insanity hasn’t made you lose all composure just yet.
I thought I’d share a printable I made for both The Evil Assistant and myself for our updated beauty routines. I was going to do a more in-depth weekday one showing when to use acids (AHA and BHAs) and retinols buuuut that whole “Catalina update sucks and I don’t have access to my Photoshop CS6 anymore” thing is still happening… you know, that ole chestnut!
At least I can share this simple routine with you now and give you some other quick tips to keep in mind.
- Use retinols at night only.
- Remember to ease into new routines, i.e. acids and retinol products should be used once a week then built up from there.
- Alternate acids and retinol use, e.g. Monday = acids, Tuesday = retinol, etc.
Mechanical exfoliants with chemical exfoliants
(sonic brushes then any “__ acid”, fruit enzymes like pineapple and AHAs/BHAs)
