Beauty Tips for the Busy Babe: The Best Skincare Routine

I missed a couple roundup weeks around spring break, but I wanted to jump in today to bring you a helpful beauty chart. I get a lot of skincare questions and the biggest one is “How do I establish a routine?” There are so many products out there and it’s hard to know what to use, and when. I have you covered!

It’s easiest to me to break down my routine into day, night, and good habits to follow. You can check out and pin my chart for easy reference! I’ll also link you to some of my favorites below.

On my shopping list

Last week, a friend told me she was planning on getting a silk pillowcase. I’m hooked at the idea of something I could lay on that would help my skin and hair. Cotton is scratchy and tugs on skin and grips and twists hair. Less split ends and no sleep creasing on my face sounds pretty fantastic. Slip Silk Pillowcases are pricey but I’m considering the investment! 

In the summer, I am always looking to amp up my skincare routine with more SPF. I’ve heard that full spectrum is the ticket if you REALLY want to protect your skin. I am also a huge texture person and won’t wear something if it disturbs my makeup or gives my face a white cast. That’s why I’m dying to try Coola Sun Silk Drops. The reviews say it feels like water on the skin! My self tanner for face also feels like water and I’m obsessed with it so I know this would be a great addition to my summer skincare routine! 

I’m really into beauty tools and I’ve been using the NuFace Mini for a couple months. I’m seeing a difference, and I believe there’s something to some of these tools that promise to firm and anti-age the skin. The next thing I want to try is the Clarisonic Smart Profile Uplift. I love the idea of such an intense facial massage, and I’ve heard such good things!
