5 Essential Beauty and Skincare Products

Finding your perfect beauty and skincare routine is a challenge, especially since there are thousands of products out there and new ones are popping up everyday. Everyone’s skin is different so it’s difficult to know exactly which products will work for you. However, if you want to start building your beauty collection or revamp your skincare routine, there are certain must have products that will work for anyone. Here are the 5 essential beauty and skincare products that every girl needs:

Dry Shampoo

Hair can tend to get dull and lifeless as a day goes on, which is a problem for anyone who is on the go. This is especially a problem if you workout or go to the gym in the mornings and head straight to work afterwards. A great fix for this is dry shampoo. If your hair feels oily, dirty, or lifeless anytime throughout the day, you can just spray dry shampoo into your roots and it’ll give you that just washed feeling without getting your hair wet. A great dry shampoo is Oscar Blandi’s Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray. For a cheaper alternative, try rubbing some baby powder into your roots and brushing it out.

Eye Cream

Some people have the misconception that you only need eye cream if you’re older. That’s not true. The area around our eyes are more sensitive and especially in the colder months, they can become dry. You should use an eye cream on top of your facial moisturizer, such as the Olay Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum. This will keep the skin around your eyes looking supple and soft. It also fight lines and wrinkles at the same time.

Makeup Remover

Makeup remover is a must have for anyone who wears makeup, no matter how little. Removing all traces of makeup from your face is an important part of your daily routine to prevent clogged pores and breakouts. Makeup remover wipes, like the Almay Makeup Remover Towelettes, are great because they are easy to use and you can toss them into your bag when you’re on the go.


Sunscreen is the most often forgot about product in a skincare routine but at the same time, probably the most important. Sunscreen is absolutely necessary in any skincare routine anytime of the year. The sun’s UV rays are very damaging and the only way to protect against it is to wear sunscreen everyday. You can find a facial moisturizer that has sunscreen in it, such as the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Lotion With SPF.


Does your skin feel dull and dry? If so, you might need an exfoliator. Exfoliating your skin a couple of times a week helps remove dry skin cells as well as any impurities. If you do this routinely, you’ll find that your skin will glow. A great gentle exfoliator is the St. Ives Apricot Scrub.
