Obianuju’s Skincare Routine (Because She’s A Compulsive List-Maker)

In my 5 Rules for Life post, I mentioned that one of the many lists I keep is of my nightly skincare routine. If that piqued your interest, you can see the bare bones of my schedule below. My morning routine is the same each day. The nighttime schedule is where all the fun happens, as this routine changes based on the day. For some context, I have oily, acne-prone skin.

For a more detailed look at the specific products I use on each day, see the below routine:
