Beauty Bit, Daytime Skincare

Illustrated by Jacqueline Davis Moranti

Routines are ever changing, especially when it comes to skincare. Young women and men are always seeking to find that holy grail product that they can't live without, I myself am always on the look out. While I may have a few haircare and makeup products that I absolutely can't live without, my skincare regime changes as often as the season does. Skin is finicky and subject to change without a days notice which is why I'm always having to adjust. My skin, especially during the summer months tends to be on the oilier side which means I have to work on controlling that before anything else. You can't have "poppin" makeup with bad skin so check out what I do to keep the skin at bay.

C/O Clarisonic

Having oily skin has it's ups and it's downs, from having a natural dew to having your makeup mysteriously wipe itself off! My current routine helps me maintain clear skin and a healthy base for makeup wearing, just because it's a heatwave doesn't mean you can't wear makeup! 

One of my mainstays throughout my skincare routine for the past few months has been my Clarisonic Mia brush. I absolutely love it's cleansing power and the fact that it has interchangeable brush heads. The brush head featured in the video is the acne brush head and is suitable for sensitive and oily skin. As demonstrated in the video, I use Clarisonic's Pore & Blemish Gel Cleanser by adding it to the brush head. I find this being way more effective than rubbing it on your face with your hands.


Always start off with a naked face meaning no makeup or residue, I splash some water on my face and then proceed with a micellar water on a cotton ball. I make sure to pick up any random residue on my face that my night cream may have left. Then I use my Clarisonic Mia brush with the gel cleanser,  I use it in circular motions for about a minute. The Mia brush has timer on it so it turns off in a minute. Then I proceed with a face mask, this is usually done about once- twice a week for me when I have the time for it. I make sure to put an even, thick layer and let it sit for about 10- 15 minutes. I then use my little face sponge to scrub it off which also doubles as an exfoliant! And then of course I moisturize for the final step with It Cosmetic's Bye Bye Redness Moisturizer and Bye Bye Under Eye Cream. Voila, healthy glowing skin without the unwanted oiliness.

This routine will most likely stick with me throughout the summer months but come autumn, it's a different story! One thing that will remain with me through most seasons is my Clarisonic Mia brush!
