In order of usage,
- ~5-6 drops of Mad Hippie’s Vitamin C Serum ($33.99). I went in depth about it here, but in short, this is a powerhouse against the discolorations leftover by my summer breakout and is chock full of antioxidants and moisture. I let this sit for 5 minutes to make sure all the goodness has been absorbed as recommended by Mad Hippie.
- 2 drops of Acure Organic’s Argan Oil ($14.99) + 1 drop of Aura Cacia’s Tamanu Oil ($15.99) mixed together in my palm, which I then gently press and massage into my face. I’m using this pair together to combine argan oil’s abundant fatty acids and vitamin E along with tamanu oil’s topical healing and super antimicrobial abilities to heal up my blemish scars. It’s no overnight miracle, but this plus Mad Hippie has been really healing my skin.
- 3 drops of Now Solutions’ Jojoba Oil on my arm, 3 for my other arm, 3 for one calf, 3 for another calf, you get the idea.
Note: As for smells and textures, I’m not really picky about these things, so I enjoy Tamanu’s vaguely nutty herbal scent and I don’t smell Argan at all (I don’t know what people are talking about when they say Argan smells bad).
Second note: Yes, they’re oils, and I’m in love with oils, if you can’t tell. And I’m acne-prone, and my skin just drinks these up. Don’t be afraid of oils. They feed your skin amazingness and I think the term oil-free now is kind of silly.
