Drink more water if your skin looks dehydrated. Try aloe vera gel without alcohol in it. Drop all facial products with alcohols.
I don't know about a routine, but if I don't eat any junk my face is clear from pimples etc.
Skin: less (products) is more. Lifestyle is key.
-Usually I wash with Dr. Bronner's Castile soap (so cheap! although I am guilty of using other cvs chemical scrubby things) 2x a day. Once in the morning after shower to wash the film of shampoo/conditioner off (I read about this somewhere); once around evening to wash makeup off.
-Summers I tend to moisturize with 100% aloe vera gel if I remember; winters I use coconut oil or your average jergens. I am not fancy. 50% of the time I forget to moisturize.
-I wear SPF 50 oil free sunscreen (sensitive skin kinds) in the summer...or winter if I am outside all day.
-then makeup. :P
-I do an aspirin scrub (crushed aspirin, sugar) whenever I remember (I am lazy).
-lifestyle: I think this is key. I don't eat junk, I don't drink/smoke/do drugs (never have), I try to aim for 8 hours of sleep a night, and I stay out of the sun as much as I can (which equates to still on average 30-60 mins outside daily)...I don't tan on purpose. I drink adequate water, and I noticed more fruits have made my skin look healthier. I don't put a lot of effort into actual skin care, but I think lifestyle/diet is 90% there in terms of good skin care. The rest is don't leave makeup on your face o/n and don't wear overload your face with cleanser, makeup remover (I use coconut oil if it's a tough to remove thing), toner, primer, foundation, scrub, mask, night recovery serum, day time moisturizer, eye cream, etc. The less chemicals your face has to get used to the better.
Hair: less is more here too.
-I change shampoo/conditioner up often. Right now it is
I tend to skew towards ones with less crappy chemicals these days, but once in a while I will buy Garnier fructis because I don't believe in designer beauty brands. (I am not a beauty gal... Sephora is only for a few specific makeup products I know I love and I am out of.)
- I shampoo+condition every 2-3 days. I shower with lukewarm water (this has helped with dry hair). Other days I either just wash with water or leave it dry and just wash the rest of my body.
-I don't blow dry or straighten/curl my hair ever, or use hair gel/hairspray, for less hair damage. If you see me in the morning, I am walking to class with wet hair (I air dry).
-other: no coloring, bleaching, etc. The only hair product aside from shampoo/conditioner I use is sea salt spray (sea salt +water mostly) for more texture. I noticed that I got more hair complements since I ate gelatin, and that my hair stopped being fragile when I went from LC to HC.
So basically my routine is to do as little to both as possible (aside from makeup... )...avoid toxins, feed it nutrients, and let it repair by sleeping a second full cycle nightly.
Oh and I try to eat a tsp of coconut oil here and there for hair/skin.
