4. Treat and moisturize

To finish up I treat any blemishes using an acne spot treatment and moisturize my skin with a moisturizer without SPF that’s formulated for my skin type. Two that work well for my oily/combination skin are from SheaMoisture - the African Black Soap and Bamboo Charcoal Gelee Moisturizer and 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Glow Priming Moisturizer.

I try to follow this routine every night. Even when I travel. The exception might be when I do a quick overnight trip I may skip the toner and treatment parts. Outside of that, the only thing that typically changes is the products. Some products travel better than others or I may switch to products to give my skin something new.

What is your makeup removal routine?
