It's no secret that the summertime is the best time of the year. There's beach trips with family & friends, tan skin (unless you self-tan year round like me!), and cool summer nights. Unfortunately, it also means more oil production and more breakouts.

As I've mentioned before in several posts, I have rosacea, which basically means it looks like I permanently put on way too much blush, and my skin is super sensitive. My cheeks are always blotchy looking, and it's even worse in the summertime when I get overheated. I also get annoying hormonal & stress breakouts. It's always super easy to tell that my body is stressed by how many breakouts I have.

With the help of Clarisonic and a few other amazing skincare products, today I'm giving you my skin-clearing skincare routine that's gentle enough for the most sensitive of skins. I actually used to use a Clarisonic back in college, and I'm so glad I decided to try it out again.

Clarisonic is the #1 cleansing device recommended by US dermatologists. Its patented sonic frequency works with the skin's natural elasticity to gently cleanse skin 6x better than hands alone, removing age accelerating pollutants. It reduces the appearance of enlarged pores, revealing healthy, radiant-looking skin.

By using the Clarisonic in the morning, it will not only cleanse and prep your skin for your makeup, it will allow your skincare to absorb into your skin better, providing you extra skin benefits. When the texture of your skin is drastically improved, your makeup will also last longer and look better on your skin.

The Clarisonic is also gentle enough to use both morning and night, because it is that gentle on your skin. The Clarisonic uses a patented range of sonic motion, oscillating back-and-forth over 300 times per second, to gently flex pores, without stretching or damaging the skin.The sonic cleansing process removes the dirt, oil, and debris that ages your skin and causes breakouts.

No joke, after just two days of using my Clarisonic Mia 1, I could feel a drastic change in my skin. My skin was smoother, softer, and my skin just felt cleaner. During the first week of use, my skin was already starting to clear up, and I think it also had to do with the awesome Pore & Blemish Gel Cleanser. It's designed for those with sensitive, acne-prone skin to target excess oil, pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads for clearer-looking skin. The formula contains 2% Salicylic Acid to fight acne breakouts. I can personally tell you that this cleanser makes your skin feel amazing.

So now that we've covered cleansing our skin, it's time to focus on some other skin-loving products that will help keep your skin healthy and clear. These are all products that I have been loving lately and have continued to use, because they truly have done amazing things for my skin.

Georgette Klinger Masks //

Raise your hand if you love to indulge on a self-care night with a face mask?! ๐Ÿ™‹ Doing a face mask and painting my nails honestly determines whether I have my life together or not. A face mask is such a relaxing and easy way to detox your skin and help keep it clear.

I was sent three Georgette Klinger masks to try, and I'm honestly obsessed. The Vitamin C mask (my personal fav so far) draws out impurities, allowing argan and avocado oils to nourish and revitalize your skin. It also has algae extract, which helps to moisturize and soften your skin. Each of the three face masks do different things, so be sure to check them out here

Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Serum //

Did you know that when your skin starts to produce more oil, it's actually craving moisture?! If you think about it, you tend to get more oily in the summertime, right? This is also the time of the year where you may or may not be drinking the proper amount of water, so your body and your skin are craving delicious amounts of moisture.

A simple way to add intensive hydration without overloading on creams is to use pure argan milk. By just applying a few drops in the morning before applying makeup, my skin is naturally radiant, and feels hydrated & smooth all day long. In fact, 75% of women reported their skin felt so hydrated, as if they drank eight glasses of water for their skin.  ๐Ÿ™Œ You can see the claim here.

Estฤ“e Lauder Resilience Lift Creme //

Say hello to my favorite sculpting and firming cream! Now I know I'm only 24 years old, but honey, this girl needs some serious face firming/lifting/you name it. I'm not about to go get botox, but I will use a cream that's basically botox in a jar for me. This firming and sculpting face and neck creme helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and your skin will be left looking radiant. That's what it's all about, right, because we all want naturally radiant, younger-looking skin. I also love that it has SPF 15, so it gives your skin added protection from the sun.

What skincare products do you love to use during the summertime?!
Have you used a Clarisonic before?
