I used quotes in the title of this blog post because I fully understand that my current routine, to many others, will feel excessive. BUT in comparison to the like 48,036 products I WAS using, this is pretty minimal. ;)
There's not a firm reason I've paired down. Maybe just that I wanted to go as "back to basics" as possible to let my skin kind of reset & see what's actually going on? Because for a long while there, I was switching stuff up pretty much daily, rotating between sooo many different products I had picked up over the last couple years. And I have a feeling some of the on-going skin issues I've been noticing were because my skin was getting too much attention? Who knows?
