Skincare Routine for Psoriasis and Combination Skin
It does seem like every single person online wants to share their skincare routine so I’m not going to pretend that sharing mine is anything revolutionary, BUT I do get questions about the products I am using for my psoriasis and beyond.
I will go through everything I use from the shower all the way through to makeup and sun care. The majority of these products are clean beauty products or as clean as possible. I still use a standard eyeliner and gel nail polish on my nails because nobody’s perfect (cue Hannah Montana).

This helps me continue creating great recipes for all of you! Thank you for understanding that I would never recommend a product that I don't actually use and believe in.
For my psoriasis I spray my scalp with a 50/50 mixture of water and Apple Cider Vinegar and let that sit for about 10 minutes
I wash the rest of my body with bar soap which I rotate, but is usually some kind of oatmeal and honey bar soap
Wash out my shampoo and use the coconut conditioner that come with the apple cider vinegar shampoo
After I shower if I’m going to bed I use Primally Pure body butter, but if I am going on with my day I use Primally Pure blue tansy oil and I ALWAYS use Primally pure deodorant. If you want to learn more about my must have Primally Pure products, I list them all here.
The majority of my skin care products are from The Ordinary. I love how you can customize them to whatever you need because each step is an individual product. This is my routine, but I recommend finding one that works for you.
Tone with The Ordinary Glycolic Acid and I found little reusable cotton rounds that you can wash!
Treat acne or acne prone areas with The Ordinary Niacinamide
Use The Ordinary Caffeine serum on my under eye areas
Treat entire face with The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid to moisturize
Treat entire face with The Ordinary Rose Hip Oil
My makeup routine is very, very basic and most days I where none at all, but below are the products that I have used and liked for a long time.
After sunscreen I use Ilia True Skin Serum foundation and Beauty Counter Concealer for under my eyes
For mascara I use Lashfood Volumizing Mascara
Then I use BeautyCounter brow gel
I bronze with Well People Natural Bronzer
I do a little highlight on my cheek bones with Josie Maran Argan Oil highlight stick
For perfume I have been using Clean Skin scent
Sun Care and Self Tanner
Daily sunscreen for my face is the Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen with SPF 40
Body sunscreen is the Supergoop! Everyday SPF 50
Isle of paradise for face self tanner - I use light drops and it is still very bronzing
Coola Foaming mousse for body self tanner - be sure to get a glove to apply this evenly.
This is my full routine! If you follow me on instagram, you probably noticed that I am makeup free with a top knot in my hair most days. I just don’t feel like its necessary for me to put on a full face of makeup each day.
When I do decide to put makeup or a fancy outfit on, I want to look GOOD and keep my skin feeling good. With psoriasis I have to be very careful about what goes on my skin. These items have all been psoriasis tested and approved!
