Cleanliness is next to godliness and you better believe this is the golden rule when it comes to skin care. As the weather cools down, it could wreak havoc on your skin. Hydration and removing buildup are key to maintaining skin’s health during the fall/winter months.

We all want to put our best face forward, and I’ve got you covered with some glamazing product recommendations! Here are six of my favorite products to protect, enhance and beautify your skin without breaking the bank!

1. St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub


This is my go-to product when I want to get rid of pimples or an annoying blackheads. Besides the fact that it’s a gentle scrub, I love that it contains 100 percent Natural Green Tea, which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. ($6.26,

2. Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser


I started using this facial cleanser about four years ago, when a makeup artist friend of mine pegged it as her favorite cleanser– let’s just say that it was one of the best beauty decisions that I’ve ever made in my life! It works on all skin types and easily removes makeup! My skin always feels soft post-use and one of the large bottles lasts me for months! ($9.27 (16 oz),

3. Cetaphil DailyAdvance Ultra Hydrating Skin Lotion

I’ve always been finicky about moisturizing my combination skin because it tends to get oily throughout the day and that resulted in breakouts. Well, that twisted logic went out the window after I discovered this gentle, daily moisturizer. Not only does it work as a great base to create a smooth palette prior to makeup application, but it’s not greasy and it really leaves my skin soft all day without being greasy and clogging my pores. ($9.27 (16 oz),

4. Queen Helene Mud Pack Masque


Oh-em-gee! What can I say about this awesome mud masque that isn’t great?! I use it multiple times a week for a quick pick-me-up. My skin feels soft and looks brighter every time I use it! (3.79,

5. Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque


This masque is the definition of an oldie-but-goodie. I use it when I need to tighten and lift my skin because it absorbs excess oil and helps minimize the appearance of pores. I use this once every couple of weeks. ($3.79,

6. Garnier Clean The Refreshing Remover Cleansing Towlettes


These towelettes caught my attention because of my positive experiences with Garnier hair products and the affordable price! These wipes are ideal for makeup removal or for a quick touch-up during the day. They’re allergy-tested and are 100 percent oil-free and give skin a soft, matte finish. ($4.99,


What are your favorite skin care products?
