Acne Prone

Seriously, my skin has always been a battle. I started going to a dermatologist at a young age, and have used a variety of harsh cleaning methods over time. Still, my face used to stay constantly broken-out. I took the advice of a sweet girl at Sephora one day about two years ago, and decided to make my daily cleansing routing much milder.

I went from using a salicylic wash, astringent, and benzyl peroxide cream everyday to one simple cleanser and a Clarisonic. It took a month or so before I really started seeing any results, but finally - they came.

Now as for make-up, I have used Jane Iredale's pressed powder foundation for 10 years. Anytime I have tried another make-up, and trust me I have (I sold Clinique & Estee Lauder for four years), my face has broken-out terribly. So I just stick with Jane these days when it comes to anything that goes on my skin - blush and bronzers included.

In all, I've tried to keep my routine simple - Here are the products I like to keep in my cabinet:
