Who Wants A Simple Skincare Routine Printable

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.

 

  1. Use retinols at night only.
  2. Remember to ease into new routines, i.e. acids and retinol products should be used once a week then built up from there.
  3. Alternate acids and retinol use, e.g. Monday = acids, Tuesday = retinol, etc.

 

 

DON’T MIX

 

Mechanical exfoliants with chemical exfoliants
(sonic brushes then any “__ acid”, fruit enzymes like pineapple and AHAs/BHAs)

Benzoyl Peroxide and chemical exfoliants

Benzoyl Peroxide and retinol

Vitamin C and AHA/BHAs
