My Skincare Routines for Oily/Combination Skin: Weekly Routine

My weekly treat J
Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Concentrate ~ comes in small capsules
I wash with my Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel and follow with the Microfoliant, the only difference from my nightly routine is that I exfoliate for a bit longer than normal to really get rid of any dead cells on my face. It is really important to avoid scrubbing any harder than usual because you do not want to damage or irritate the skin.
Now on to the good part…
I smooth the Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Mask on and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. I cannot say enough good things about this mask. It nourishes and moisturizes my skin. It smells great and it is particularly soothing during the dry winter months.
I then take a clean towel and run a bit of hot (not scalding water) over it. I squeeze out the excess water, open up the towel, and cover my face to get that “at the spa” feeling *contented sigh … so relaxing*. When the towel cools I gently wipe of the mask (Re-wet with lukewarm water and repeat).
Then I tone, apply my Multivitamin Power Concentrate, eye-cream, spot-treatment, and moisturizer.
*I am on the hunt for a deep cleansing mask*

  1. Hello there 2 deep cleansing masks I would recommend are 1. the seaweed ionic clay mask from the body shop ---> leave on face for 30 minutes then remove. it is also very good as a spot treatment for pimples.

    2. Origins active charcoal mask --> this was also recommended for use as a spot treatment for pimples.

  2. Thanks Kae-Toya :)

    I will look into both. I will ask for a sample of the seaweed mask next time I am at the Body Shop.

    I bought the Blue Corn 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Mask from the Body Shop; only used it 3 times so it's to early in the game to give an honest review, but I like how it makes my face feel so far.

  3. Good to hear, I plan to try the blue corn as well, I think it has in some of the clay. Clay is really good for Oily skin.
