my day & night skincare routine
hi guys welcome to the first video on my second channel this channel is all about jody not quarter j the streamer but me lifestyle content beauty content um just everything that wouldn’t go on my main channel where you guys are gonna get to know me a little bit more today’s video is going to be showing you my updated skincare routine on my first channel there is a get ready with me that i show a little bit of my skincare but as you can already tell probably from this video my skin’s actually improved a lot i’m not saying it’s perfect but uh i don’t feel very ashamed to walk around without makeup anymore which is really new for me so i’m gonna dive into the products that i’m using why i’m using them it’ll be my day and night routine so it’s actually pretty late it’s 4 32 p.
m i usually wake up wash my face and then you know wash my face in the night at night but um today it’s been kind of hectic we had another roommate move in so we were helping with that and on top of that um i’ve been brainstorming this channel and how to bring it to life so anyways we’re just going to pretend it’s like nine in the morning okay i don’t even wake up at 9 a.
m we’re gonna pretend it’s honestly 4pm isn’t really far off from when i wake up let me tell you a little bit my skincare could you oh god so as you can tell my skin is not perfect wow this is not a flattering angle okay so let me show you my skin i have these freckles that just honestly might be they might just be sun damage but i’m gonna i’m i’ve been telling myself they’re freckles for years to probably make myself feel better i used to tan a lot in high school i’ll show you a picture right here uh you know everyone goes through that phase of trying to um you just did we find ourselves and fit in everyone at my high school’s hand and it was just kind of the thing that the girls did for whatever reason i thought that the more makeup that i wore the better i would look no matter how i was doing it or like the technique so i literally would wear black eyeshadow in the corners of my eyes and then silver like sparkle eyeshadow in the corners put on some i guess you call it wink eyeliner i don’t know if i can really classify it as that back then because i don’t think i really it looks like i’m just gonna say it now okay i didn’t used to do my eyebrows so imagine like your eyes all day super dark you know look and then my eyebrows are like empty there’s like no shade really like you can look at my eyebrows now like really splotchy you know um so let’s just say i i was never you know i didn’t get a lot of attention from boys growing up okay i look a little silly so here you can see that i have like some scars some freckles pores on my nose still a little big and large i used to pick my pores right here a lot my forehead thankfully has is pretty clear i’ve never really struggled with forehead acne but i would get little bumps but thankfully i had no cystic acne there but i didn’t have sex cystic acne uh just honestly all over my cheeks i had really bad acne growing up i probably have pictures on my phone that i’m using the light for i’ll just link them in the video boom i always see youtubers do that so i’m gonna do it too so my water takes a really long time to get warm so first part of my skincare i actually end up washing my face with like kind of cold lukewarm water maybe that’s helped me i have no idea but depending on what’s happening so if i have acne or not i’ve been using this this is paula’s choice perfecting balanced foaming cleanser i’m not gonna lie the marketing tactics for this worked on me the words perfect like perfectly balanced perfectly balanced i bought it light lather easily removes oil and makeup preserves skin’s protective barrier i’ve been using this if i have acne this is the face wash that saved my life in high school i could not find a product that worked for me my mom found paula’s choice online this was before she even had like um a skincare line that was sold in person it was only online and so my mom was like you might as well try it i did like a mini town underneath my sink because i tried so many skincare products and none of them worked i still broke out and this is the only thing that actually helped not saying that i fixed my acne altogether but it did help i’m trying not to use it every day i don’t want to dry my skin out too much because i have a lot of actives in my skin care but on the days that i’m working sorry working out yeah right the days that i’m breaking out or the days leading up to my period every month people usually use this but for now i’m gonna use that take a little bit foam it up okay and then i dab my face dry my towel is over there though but just know that i dab my face dry okay no no no don’t be rough with your skins like be gentle treat your skin like a baby okay all right to prevent myself from looking like an egg this entire video i’m bringing my hair down oh yes much better first step in my skincare is after washing my face all right there’s witch hazel with rose petal witch hazel’s just been kind of a savior for me i have sensitive skin um i use it when my skin is itchy i use it all over my face it helps get rid of my little bumps so a lot of people or at least me i had the little bumps that really bothered me especially my forehead which will help me with that i’m not gonna say that it’s gonna help you but help me i go up on my neck because i don’t want wrinkles while that dries i’m gonna be honest i’m gonna brush my teeth and i know what you’re thinking jody it’s four p.
m haven’t you brushed your teeth yet i don’t have to answer my question okay yeah that feels much better i should have done that much sooner the second step to my skincare routine which i’ve used for years and will continue to use for years and is not updated uh in my skincare routine this isn’t new at all but is paula’s choice c15 super booster 15 vitamin c with vitamin e free acid the important part is the vitamin c now mine is oxidized this is old i have to buy a new one the fact that it is orange is not that good um but you know it do be expensive and i don’t i don’t want to waste it so so i only use this in a day so i use three drops which is kind of a lot but i only use it um in the morning so i just might as well like use it up before it oxidizes and then i’m going to let that dry usually i go on my phone in this moment while this is drying um okay next this is sonya the cars i’m still iffy about this product it’s pretty much it’s active as niacinamide i think niacinamide is a good product the problem is my skin is really sensitive so if it is just pure iron cinnamine i have trouble using it or incorporating it into my skincare so i’m trying to use this and i can i realize that i can use this every day and it does clear up my skin this is my second time buying it i think i like it a lot anyways i do a little goop boop put it all over i like it because it’s gentle i just don’t think that i can use pr9 cinnamon a lot of people have heard of the ordinary so the ordinary sounds like nine cinnamon and a lot of other different products but the nice amount that i oh my gosh i keep saying this word and it doesn’t sound real anymore the nine cinnamon that i used for the ordinary was too harsh on my skin my skin just didn’t like it also it’s been years since i’ve tried this is the new product that i introduced recently when i started to be like i really want to try to get a nine cent of my product into my skincare you know we’ll see what happens and so far i’ve kind of been liking it okay the third product i’m trying it now i recently did a haul of polish choice products and i was like this had such good reviews that i just really wanted to try it so i’m trying the omega complex serum i just do a little dupe right now put it all over most products that i use in my face i use on my neck and if applicable on the back of my hands it’s kind of habit by now but i think that it’s just like overall skin care right things to show age really fast on your hands your neck your face so i just kind of put it everywhere and hope that maybe in 40 years i’ll look great that’s kind of the point right okay now i’m gonna go into step five i just use my lotion my basic lotion that has never broken me out god bless okay step six paulus choice extra care non-greasy sunscreen in my last skin here i used this sunscreen and while i have nothing against the sunscreen i think it’s really good it has the requirements that most sunscreens need or that sunscreens me i do not like the feeling of it as much as i like this this one when you will tell when it dries it will like flake off enough like it’s like a wet gush on your face and don’t like that feeling for obvious reasons so i kind of put that away for a rainy day and i switched to this one you shake it before i use it um this is what it looks like it’s very liquidy the viscosity is very low but this one goes on much better and i put it everywhere it doesn’t feel most sunscreens i feel like this i look crazy and i this is like i’m going to the beach you know i’m not like getting ready but thankfully i don’t feel bad about putting a lot of this on because it goes on so well and i think that’s good the more sunscreen the better right see it um okay for me it looks like it spread really clear don’t forget to put it all over so that was my daytime skincare routine uh i’m gonna go with makeup on but for this video i’m not gonna show you that i’m only gonna show you um my skin care i’ll be back later tonight to show you my nighttime skincare routine and how i remove my makeup see you guys soon okay so i’ve had my makeup on pretty much all day and now i’m just gonna go and do a night routine some of the products are the same some of them aren’t i’m gonna start by washing my face hold on i’m gonna take my rings off and take my false eyelashes off the way that i take my makeup off product number one paula’s choice perfect cleansing oil i really like this it usually gets rid of my makeup all i do is two pumps and i just everywhere and i do this while i’m washing my or while the water is getting warm but it just feels like it just comes off so easily with this i really like it same uh face wash as my morning routine okay so that was pretty much my step one was my oil cleanser my step two was the same face wash that i used this morning my step three i don’t use my vitamin c serum at night instead i use either paula’s choice two percent pha liquid exfoliant this has helped clear up my skin a lot and overall made it brighter i like it a lot it is kind of drying though so i try not to use it every night um and why i kind of switch off between products so when i say or i mean either using this toner or witch hazel in this case for today i’m going to be using witch hazel i hear you hello hey hey might as well say hi hey how’s your tutorial going is that tutorial it’s my night skincare train oh oh i need to watch it i try not to use the uh two percent bha liquid at the same night that i use my retinol my skin is too sensitive it does not like it so i’m not doing it um but i really like this so step four follows choice super antioxidant concentrated serum with retinol so this has i think 0.
03 retinol in it i won’t mean so this is .03 retinol in it um i originally used this one which is has 0.01 right now in it and i thought my skin could use a little bit of oomph i don’t want wrinkles i really really really really really do want wrinkles and since i’ve been using this my skin is like i feel like it’s glowing maybe that’s not true but i do be liking it so a dollop and then i go in with lotion step six paula’s choice uh daily skin clearing treatment it’s a benzoyl peroxide uh zip cream so i don’t have any really like strong breakouts right now but i want to put it on this little problem spot right here and probably some right here just places that i’m like starting to get little bumps um this has saved my life been using this since again high school hey that’s it that’s my night routine yeah easy peasy lemon squeezy i’m gonna put my my night guard into hello so as you can see it is a different day i am in different clothes honestly the last time that i filled my filmed what did i just say i filmed my skincare video was a really long time ago i’ve just been going through a bit of a rough patch mentally and so i didn’t have the energy to film but thankfully my energy is back and so i’m filming this today so time has passed my skin pretty much looks the same my skincare is the exact same but i did want to take this time to talk to you guys about why i’m passionate about skin and my journey with skin and how i got to where i am today oh god i’ve had acne since i can remember i remember in like maybe when i was 11 starting to wear makeup because i had little pimples on my forehead and that was really my life i had minor acne growing up so when i was like 11 12 right when about when like i got my period i started getting uh hormonal acne definitely like around my chin and then i started getting cystic in high school i mean anyone with acne knows what it feels like it’s just terrible and you feel like it’s the only thing that people are looking at when they look at you i also like didn’t really understand that there was good makeup out there it feels like makeup has really like improved in the last couple of years but when i was growing up um it just felt like i didn’t have a lot of options that came with good coverage i guess i would buy drugstore makeup which probably didn’t help my skin that much at the time i remember trying to just like pile it on to to get coverage to somehow cover my cystic acne and it you know never worked it would come off during the day so then i’d become even more self-conscious like my makeup would look like crap it was just like everything compounded onto another my insecurities were at an all-time high my confidence was not an all-time low you know for me like acne is my achilles heel and so it made me so emotional and i would just cry about it all the time and then people would be like kind of not very empathetic but my feelings didn’t really get help until i was in my senior year of high school i went to see a dermatologist like early senior year of high school to clear it up by may for prom i mean i didn’t really know anything back then and so she said why don’t we try putting you on birth control and my parents are like uh i mean like if that’s gonna work for her acne and i was like sure i don’t give a crap what it is like as long as it’s gonna fix my acne so start taking uh birth control pills which are like releasing hormones systemically i pretty much had all of the side effects of birth control except for it clearing my acne it started clearing my cystic acne a bit but i still had tiny little bumps like everywhere it didn’t feel like it really did anything and instead i just gained weight and was super moody my body is still different because of me taking birth control like i will never ever take systemic birth control again i’m scarred i have been taking birth control for a couple months now because i was what september to around may and then i remember like a month after prom i was like okay i’m i’m getting off of this and then i had to go on a freaking diet try to work out to lose 30 pounds that i gained oh my god i could probably show you what i look like this is the heaviest i have ever been okay this is also just an unflattering picture in and of itself yes me i mean it’s not really a good picture anyways uh i went to another dermatologist that my dad had nona for a bit oh my god i went to these dermatologist sessions as if it was therapy because acne really felt like such a problem for me that when i went to the doctor’s office i would talk to them about my acne problems as if i was just like literally talking to therapists like how much it affects my life how much i just can’t handle it my mental break you know how i hate it so much you know um and they were just big okay because i mean i’m sure they hear it all the time i’m just another patient on their list and he prescribed me antibiotics he first prescribed me minocycline and spironolactone and we and he wanted me to take them at the same time um i had terrible side effects from minocycline i’m not kidding you i have never felt like my emotions were not my own so i took minocycline and then i was like an emotional mess i remember um being really hungry but also really nauseous i didn’t know what to do so then i was like maybe i’m going to puke and i’m trying to get ready for school and it was already like 5am and i had to leave for school like 6am okay that’s probably not it’s probably 6am when i leave school at 7.
remember sitting in my bathroom like trying to do my makeup and being so stressed because i had to get ready for school and it was school was happening really soon but then i had to puke and then i didn’t know what to do so i had really had like weird emotional side effects for video cycle i have no idea um i remember skipping school that day and my mom like emailing my math teacher and like all my teachers being like hey like jody’s having some weird side effects like she can’t go to school today my acne was getting better actually i was still having active checkups with my dermatologist and we had just continued to like um keep what we had going plus he would like prescribe me topicals but the thing was i started getting like um discoloration in my legs because you should not be on a number yes so i don’t know what that voice was because you shouldn’t be on an antibiotic for two years duh because duh i went to him and i was like hey like i don’t really feel comfortable being on an antibiotic for this long like do you have any other solutions for my acne he was like uh no not really like we have a naturopathic doctor that you could see but it’s not like proven to help your acne blah blah blah i’m like okay he’s like but you could try accutane and i was like hey sign me up like what else am i gonna do and i can honestly change my life i like don’t have any side effects i’m like the you know like the positive good story that comes from i mean i’ve heard some horror stories of accutane i took vitamin e once or twice a day with my accutane pill i can’t remember i want to say i was on a 40 milligram dose of accutane for six months my back was like always hurting though so my back was always hurting because i was so dry and my lips were so dry and i was cranking my eyes were dry my skin was dry started like getting little bumps on the back of my hand because i was so dry but that was when i discovered my love of aquaphor that i still use and will always use thankfully when i got off accutane everything returned back to normal and i don’t have any side effects god bless that was when my skin had really uh changed my skin is at the best it has ever been my skin would not be where it is at without accutane because it completely just changed my skin and made it more manageable during accutane my skin had been i did not see a single zit for like ever i had the initial breakout and then after that it was like chef’s kiss but then plot of accutane still had acne persistent acne but it was it was like during my periods and like splotchy and it didn’t feel as bad it felt actually manageable with like good makeup okay well that there has to be more like what else can i do and so that was when i started getting into like asian beauty routines which like i guess like i’m not really technically using any asian beauty products but i am using like and whatever eight step skin care process um and so that was when i really started like trying things introducing new products introducing just like oh i don’t know a simple vitamin c serum and like uh i had been already wearing sunscreen but things like that and just trying out new things and now because of the skincare products i use my skin is like i mean i don’t want to say it’s perfect but it is as best as i think it will ever get without maybe like cosmetic procedures part of me also thinks that like my perception of what skin should look like is so drastically skewed from social media because i don’t really know what like naturally good actually that’s not true some of my friends have just perfect skin so that’s what i want i want like really nice skin but i think that i would have to pay for some procedures which maybe will come one day that’s pretty much my skin journey ultimately i’ve just had acne for forever and finally it’s getting better but if you have acne right now or any like skin problems i’m behind feel you i am also still working on my confidence you know i hate that my confidence is tied to my physical appearance i wish that my confidence came from only everything on the inside but it’s really hard to just like disregard what you look like just know that i know what it feels like and i hope that you find the products that work for you and and you know one day maybe you’ll be able to sit down and talk about your skin care journey and how you are successful now in in knowing your skin and clearing it and being able to help others this video um and thank you for being patient with me in terms of content creation i really appreciate it i hope you guys enjoyed this second channel i don’t know how long i’ll be uploading to it or how often but whatever i do i hope you enjoy the content that i create and my skincare video uh skin care as you know is something that i’m very passionate about don’t forget to like and subscribe leave a comment below okay i don’t know okay bye have a good one goodbye
