Thanks to YES TO for sponsoring today’s post about skin care!
When I was a teenager, I never had any issues with my skin. I had an occasional breakout here and there, but no acne issues. Fast forward to my post-baby skin. Two babies have made my face composition change so much. I now break out very easily and my chin is a problem area.
I’ve tried all the teen-focused products, adult acne products, and none seem to work. Recently, YES TO sent me their YES TO Carrots Fragrance Free Bundle. I’ll admit, I was skeptical. But not because of the brand…because my face never has seemed to respond to anything! I would describe my skin as oily, so I was confused and unsure what to do. And y’all, I didn’t love my skin. Which made me sad because I felt less confident during breakouts and jealous of the lucky gals with dewy clear skin.
When I got the bundle, I had a planet growing on my forehead and breakouts along my nose and all over my chin. I was a mess. So I committed a week to this line and made sure to stick to a skin care routine daily and drink more water. Here is my routine (that you should totally get on doing):
MORNING: When I have a day that I get a shower [ha!], I use the YES TO Carrots Nourishing Exfoliating Cleanser. I used this every other day because I didn’t want to scrub ten layers of skin off. Then, when I got out of the shower, regardless of whether it was an exfoliating day or not, I would follow up with the Daily Facial Moisturizer. It has SPF 15 and does NOT dry oily! Which was a major plus for me.
NIGHT: Right before bed, I used the Gentle Cleansing Wipes. If I wore makeup, the wipes were great at taking it off. If I didn’t, the wipes made my face feel fresh and the day wiped away. I then would wash my face with the Daily Cream Facial Cleanser. After washing, I would slather on the Intense Hydration Night Cream.
After doing this for a week, the planet on my forehead went away, and to my great surprise, I realized that oily skin often needs help in the moisture area because it is working so hard to produce oils that your skin over compensates. This week, my skin has felt fresh, not oily, and hydrated. I am excited that I could say #YESTOGREATLOVE and finally found my skin care solution!
