How To Wear A Tunic Sweater

As I’ve approached my mid-30s I’ve encountered a whole new set of skincare concerns. Mainly loss of firmness, fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots/sun damage. The good news is my hormonal acne seems to have subsided, the bad news is now I’m contending with the damage I did to my skin when I didn’t wear sunscreen in my teens. Jokes aside, I am honestly LOVING my skincare routine right now. It is a great combo of Clean at Sephora products that target my skincare concerns and leave my skin feeling amazing everyday. These products are also great for spring and as we head into summer because they provide tons of hydration but feel super lightweight.

Two products in particular I’ve been testing that have been amazing for my skincare concerns are Biossance Squalane + 10% Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum and OLEHENRIKSEN C-Rush™ Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer. I’ve noticed a visible difference in my sun damage and dark spots. My skin feels smooth and hydrated all day long. I’m going to share my step-by-step skincare routine below. If you’re not in your 30s, Sephora has great clean beauty products for every age so whatever your skincare concerns, there is definitely something for you.

Clean Beauty Skincare Routine in My 30s

Step-by-Step Skincare Routine

Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner

My favorite toner forever and ever. It’s alcohol free so never drying. I love using it in the morning to wake up my skin. It has ingredients like hyaluronic acid and aloe to promote hydration, and it’s great to spray it on your face throughout the day too.

Biossance Squalane + 10% Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum

This is a newer to me product. I’ve been testing it for over a month now and it is an incredible serum with powerful ingredients like white shiitake mushroom extract and licorice root extract to correct dark spots and fight the appearance of new ones. With 10% Vitamin C for visibly brightening & firming the skin, it also helps with dullness. I’ve definitely noticed a visible difference in my sun damage and dark spots since using this serum everyday.

REN Brightening Dark Circle Eye Cream

I really like this lightweight formula because it visibly smooths and hydrates my eye area. Great for under makeup with hyaluronic acid for helping skin to retain moisture.

OLEHENRIKSEN C-Rush™ Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer

With 3 forms of Vitamin C, this is a great lightweight product for all day hydration. My skin looks smoother and more hydrated since using this gel moisturizer. I love the smell (it’s kind of like a creamsicle but not too strong and fades upon application). It also makes for a more flawless makeup application and helps skin look firmer. I have super dry skin and I’ve had no issues with dryness since I started using this moisturizer. It feels incredibly lightweight which also makes it ideal for warmer temps (especially our humid summer).

Supergoop Mineral SheerScreen SPF 30 PA+++

A lot of you asked for a good mineral sunscreen that didn’t leave a white cast and this is it! It’s a totally sheer and weightless, 100 percent–mineral daily sunscreen with SPF 30 protection. It’s SO important to wear SPF everyday. It’s vegan and cruelty-free too.

Ilia Lip Wrap Clean Hydrating Lip Mask

This is kind of the perfect combination of a lip balm and lip treatment. I love that it’s clear (perfect for wearing under your mask). It leaves my lips feeling so hydrated and smooth. A great product to use on its own or before your lipstick.

    Thanks for sharing, the lip wrap is something I’d love to try out, I’d have a dry lip sometimes.

    Great routine! I love that Indie Lee toner and definitely think anyone over the age of 25 needs a great daily vitamin C.
