My Skin Care Routine: Updated

This is what I’ve been doing, a little has change.  Lately I was getting a lot of oil in my face, I though maybe it was because of the salicylic acid. Also another thing that I was noticing it was that my pores were looking more bigger than before, like the toner  wasn’t tighten them.
Instead of using the Neutrogena Stress Control toner, I decided to give a try to the Sea Breeze Fresh Clean Astringent that Carli Bybel uses.  The Neutrogena toner has salicylic acid, and the Sea Breeze astringent has instead Benzoic Acid.
I know there is a big difference between an astringent and a toner. An astringent is supposed to remove the oil in the pores and tighten them at the same time. The toners do the same thing, but the contain a smaller amount of alcohol in them. I read that the astringent are recommended for people with oily skin, because they are more drying, and the toners are suitable for normal to combination skin.
As for the moisturizer, the Garnier Moisture Rescue Refresh Gel Cream it was an amazing one. It didn’t leave my skin feeling oily at all, but I wasn’t getting the moisture that I needed in my face. So I bought an old favorite, the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.  Also, because I’m almost a quarter century old, I bought the Clinique All About Eyes cream that helps with the fine lines, dark circles, makeup under the eye, and moisture that delicate part of the face.
I must say that I have been seeing a lot of changes in my face after these alterations in my skin care routine. My face feels moisturized, the oiliness in my face is under control, my pores look a lot smaller, the dark circles in my eyes aren’t that apparent, and the concealer glides more effortlessly and doesn’t crease as much as before.
Always love and fun
