My Current Skincare Routine and Must-Haves

Skincare is something I sort of take seriously. So serious, in fact, that I've stuck with some of my skin care must-haves for over ten years.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Ok, so let's not be too dramatic. Maybe I just simply stick with what works.
While some of my products are the same ones I've used since my younger, super oily and unpredictably breakout prone days, I've found that I definitely have had to change things up a bit so that my products work with my changing skin. 
That's the tough part. I've noticed as I've gotten a bit older, my skin has become more combination with some issues with dryness and sensitivity.  However, I'm still prone to break-outs.
Suuuuch a lovely combo.... Plus, I'm concerned with my overall skin tone and texture. I like my skin to look smooth and glowing. Not dry with apparent fine-lines (yeah, those are happening...).
So after some serious trial and error over the years, I've learned what to stick with that still works for me and new products that solve the other problems.  I've found an AMAZING moisturizer which I can safely call my favorite new product I've discovered this year. By far. An amazing eye cream that really works and does as promised, and an anti acne regimen that keeps my pores and skin clean, clear, and smooth.  Lets not forget masks and makeup removers.
So be sure to check out my new Skincare Routine video below followed by a list of all the goods.

  8. Thank you for the video. I've been struggling with uneven skin and I'm going to give proactive a try. One question I have, how often do you use the masks (like once a week or every other day)?

    Thank you!

  11. Tiffany -

    I follow a lot of beauty guru's on YouTube, and aside from your fabulous room (which has inspired me to get my act together :)) I completely love how informative you are. You make sure to include all skin types and coloring when you talk about makeup application, and you just seem so down to earth. I just wanted to say thank you.

  12. Yes! Please do a post on concealing acne! What Concealer would you recommend in general ?

  13. Wow. After watching this video, I decided to give toners, specifically the Proactiv Revitalizing Toner a try again. As I was looking on Amazon (because i get lazy sometimes to go out and look for stuff) the same products you mentioned were listed under the "Customers who shopped for 'X' Also shopped for.." Quite influential there. ;) This isn't the first time I've noticed it. lol. Not to sound like a creeper, but I'm just stating an observation.

  15. Tiffany I just want to say a HUGE thank you for mentioning the Skin MD lotion. Literally life changing. I started getting eczema on the inner corners of my eyes a few months back, and it just continued to get worse. All my concealers would just stick on the dry areas. I swear I researched and tried every lotion, oil, supplement, etc. And even stopped using most of my eye makeup :( The only thing that worked was a steroid cream given to me by a dermatologist, but after researching it, I found it can cause cataracts and glaucoma when used near the eye. I found the Skin MD lotion at Walgreens and after 3 days my eczema is 90% gone! I've been watching your videos for years but have never commented or anything but i felt you needed to know how much you helped me!! If i knew you, i'd give you a huge hug!! :)

  16. Thank you for this video, Tiffany!! As you mentioned doing in the video, I would LOVE a video on how to conceal acne! I never got breakouts as a teenager, but now that I'm in my mid-20s I've been getting lots of breakouts on my chin and I have a really hard time concealing them in a natural way. I've tried lots of different concealers and foundations, but everything looks too cakey! Also, I love the 5 minute makeup tutorial you did a while back and I was wondering if you could do some more quick eye makeup videos for when you want to look good, but have to get ready for work/school in a hurry. Hugs!

  17. Daily skin care regimen can prevent and minimize signs of aging and acne. Anyway, have you tried any facial or spa treatment? You can actually get better results from these kinds of treatment because they actually relax facial nerves and help you to have a more youthful and radiant skin.

  19. Correct washing of the skin will eliminate oils and bacteria that can cause acne. However, when you already have serious acne breakouts, washing alone likely will not make it go away. Frequent and harsh washing can even make it worse.

    There special anti-bacteria soaps designed for people suffering from acne. These soaps can help target the bacteria which may be causing the acne breakout. learning about healthcareguru.net blog

  20. Tiffany, or anyone who bought Skin MD in stores, is it near the Eucerin body lotion or by the calamine and first aid section? Please help. Thanks.

  21. It’s good thing that you have a routine skin care treatment. I can clearly see in your face that those products you’re using are effective. You have beautiful, glowing skin. I can’t see any fine lines, acne, or bumps. Your face is so clear and healthy.

  24. Well, with your beautiful skin, a lot of girls out there will be really fascinated to know your beauty secrets. Moisturizer, cream, makeup remover, etc. “I’ll stick with what works”---- That one is absolutely one of the best tips I heard from your video. If you already found the one that suits best on your skin, then you should stick to it.

  35. I am using Proactive for a very long time and it does really effective on my skin. It is one of the best acne products in the market. Will never switch to any skin care products as long as I am not seeing any reviews from them.
