If your skincare routine no longer works because of these higher stress levels from the pandemic, or you need a new quarantine specific routine, here are some skincare products to clear up your skin from all this stress!

If you can, I always prefer to buy smaller quantities before buying regular sizes to test the effects of the skincare product before fully committing a product to your regular skincare.

Keep reading for the four skincare products I’ve loved during stay-at-home orders and one skincare product that was an absolute letdown (and it was mentioned by an influencer)!

Bliss Micro Magic

I love using this scrub in the shower, usually about 3 or 4 times a week. It’s a great skincare product to try because it has a little bit of microdermabrasion from volcanic pumice. It’s not super abrasive, so you can build up how much exfoliating you want.

Usually once a week, I will really take my time and spend a few minutes scrubbing everywhere on my face. This is a great way to relax after a long day, especially when paired with a bath!

L’Oréal Pure Clay Cleanser

Here’s another one of these skincare products to clear up your skin…This L’Oréal clay cleanser!

After I’ve rinsed it off, my face feels so clean and tight. I’ve also noticed that my face will be less oily for about a day after I’ve used it.

I previously used the Olay clay mask sticks and those were terrible. I would have to rinse my face twice (or more) and really scrub it off, which felt very counterproductive.

Pixi Tonics

I cannot say enough good things about these tonics from Pixi Beauty, especially the Glow Tonic. These are more skincare products to try because they are completely worth it! They have helped to clear up my skin so much! I got my first Glow Tonic bottle towards the end of 2018 or early 2019. Since then, I’ve bought several more bottles and even some of the other tonics.

pssst… I have a code that will give you $5 off from the Pixi Beauty site!

When I first got the Glow Tonic, I used it in the morning and evening, every day for about two weeks. After those two weeks, I started using it either in the morning or evening every day. I think using it intensely at the beginning helps to maximize the way the tonic evens and smooths out your skin.

Nowadays, I use the Glow Tonic a few times a week, just whenever my skin is feeling gross or bumpy. I also have the Vitamin-C Tonic which I will use only at night because it makes your skin sensitive to the sun, and don’t forget sunscreen!

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub

These are my absolute favorite for a spa day! I love the different scents they have. My favorite scent is the Moroccan Rose but they didn’t have that one when I was at the store.

Instead, I got this pear & chia seed one which smells so light and sweet. I love to use a sugar scrub to help myself calm down after a long day, and the yummy scents these come in are great for that.

While this product won’t necessarily clear up your skin, it can help you unwind after a long day. Managing stress levels is an important component of keeping your skin clear.

(un)Bonus: Olay Masks

Just NO. Don’t get them. I got these around late 2018 after I saw Aspyn Ovard’s YouTube video on them but they are not my favorite. The black charcoal was so hard to get off because one rinse was never enough. The pink mineral complex was a little nicer but these were just so hard to get off and I didn’t feel a difference after I took it off.

I’ve bought a few more skincare products to try, like new moisturizers and cleansers, during quarantine as I’ve run out of stuff.

These skincare products are perfect for adding and keeping in your skincare routine! Using this stay-at-home time to test out new products without the worry of having to see people later sounds like the perfect moment to experiment with new products.
