Daily Skincare TasksOlay for sensitive skin. When I get home from work, I splash warm water on my face, then rub in a dime-size portion of coconut oil. I use a soft wash cloth to remove the excess, which takes off my make up as well. This is a separate jar of coconut oil than what I use for cooking, by the way. Because that's just gross otherwise.
Weekly/As Needed Skincare TasksProactiv Refining Mask, usually while I'm doing my ice bath after a long run. I let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then rinse and shower, using this astringent after. On the right is the private-label version of Seabreeze astringent I have found no substitute for this Proactiv mask - it's almost $30 a tube if you buy it at a mall kiosk, and slightly less if you're a Proactiv member. However, this one lasts me at least one year and is worth every penny. I also use it for spot treatment as needed, applying it to a pimple and leaving it for an hour.
Let's get real about one thing, while we're talking skin care: A few years ago a beautician recommended that I use this astringent on my back, which has done wonders for my bacne (back acne). I just put it in a little spray bottle and apply it after showering a few times per week. What also helped in that department is using soap rather than body wash with an exfoliating loofah and doing so after washing my hair. What, I'm a runner, my skin can get nasty from all that sweating, and I'm guessing I'm not the only one.
