As we’ve been told time and time again, it’s crucial that we take care of our skin. However, most of us don’t even have a regimented skincare routine. Perhaps that has less to do with our self-discipline and more with finding the right products that make having a skincare routine seem effortless and – dare we say – fun. Though the idea might sound intriguing and a little exciting, you’re probably skeptical of its outcome and will give in to a defeat-like mentality. Well, I certainly can’t argue with you; I’ve been there and done that, too. Around this time, almost every year, I can count on my skin not feeling or looking its best and in need of a lot of TLC. Whether it’s due to winter’s aftermath or my undying love of makeup, I’m in constant search of finding what the next best skincare routine is for me and, of course, other beauty loving gals. My motto: when in doubt, head to Sephora to check it out. You’re more than likely going to find something that’ll change your mind and, goodness knows, maybe change your life. I mean it. Sephora’s notorious for coming out with something new practically if not definitely every month. Currently, Sephora’s advertised a few of their newest skincare lines, which we just so happen to feel fall in line with what we’re about to talk about today: 3 skincare brands for all skincare types.
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel ($25)
For those of us with sensitive skin or those looking for a deep clean that won’t leave your skin feeling tight and dry, causing acne due to the loss of the skin’s natural moisture and oils, this two-in-one daily facial cleanser removes impurities and waterproof makeup. That’s right; say goodbye to your beloved yet ever so frustrating attempt to remove waterproof mascara.
Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream ($65)
I don’t care what skin type you have – this cream is good for any skin type no matter what the range or combination. By illuminating the complexion by eliminating dark spots and uneven skin tones, this brightening and refining treatment will hydrate and visibly – yes, visibly – begin to make your skin look more plump, leaving you feeling confident walking out the door with beautiful, healthy looking skin that will have others asking what you’ve done differently. (Shushhh, who says you have to tell? This can be our little secret!)
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream ($45)
Pronounced bam bam, this Brazilian cream is fast-absorbing and helps tighten pores and smooth skin. This product is best used while massaging into the skin in circular motions so that it creates warmth, which absorbs the cream better and helps with blood flow and circulation. Guaraná, a native Amazonian plant whose fruit contains one of the most potent forms of caffeine on the planet, can be found in Brazilian creams along with incredibly nourishing ingredients like cupuaçu butter, antioxidants like açaí, and conditioning coconut, all of which help your skin feel irresistibility soft and smooth. What’s even more fabulous about this cream is that regardless of what skin type you have, moisturizing is crucial for maintaining healthy and happy-looking skin, and with this exotic cream and cute packaging, you can’t go wrong leaving the house in “a head-to-toe sensuality that comes through in a smile, saunter, a samba… a confidence that comes from playing up your best assets.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, Que Gostoso. (*This product can also be found at your local Urban Outfitters store for $50.)
