Taking care of your skin is so important! I’ve heard that if you sleep with your makeup on for just one night, it ages you by eight days! That’s terrifying!! Am I the only one who has been guilty of that a time or two? Never again!
I am someone that will get a little lazy in the evenings and not want to do my skincare routine. I’ll try to get away with just taking my makeup off and not cleansing, but then I usually remind myself that it’s gross and I really need to clean all of that makeup and oil off of my face completely! I change up my routine slightly from morning to night, but these are the steps I take. Enjoy! 🙂
I start off by wetting my face with warm water and adding one pump of my Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Nourishing Cleanser to my palm. In circular motions, I lather the cleanser all over my face and neck. Then I pat my face dry with a towel. Next, I take a cotton pad and add a dime-sized amount of my Tea Tree Mattifying Toner from The Body Shop. My face tends to get oily throughout the day, so this really helps cut down on that oil and balances my skin. After that, I’ll pump a dime-sized amount of my Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Daily Moisturizer into my palm and rub it into my face and neck. If I don’t have enough, I pump a little bit more out until it covers my whole face and neck. Better to start off with too little rather than not enough!
In the evenings, I start my routine by taking my makeup off with my Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes with White Tea Extract. This product says that it cleanses your face on its own, but I still like to be extra sure I’m getting my face as clean as possible! In the evenings, I use the same Aveeno cleanser with my Mia 1 Skin Cleansing System to ensure I get a deep clean. This has really changed the game in my skincare routine! It feels like it just destroys all the gunk on my skin. I then use my Tea Tree toner again after that. Finally, I go in with my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion as my nighttime moisturizer. I’m currently looking for a good nighttime moisturizer that’s actually intended for nighttime. Does anyone have any suggestions?
One or twice a week, I like to use the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask. I normally use this in the shower and I just love it! It is on the pricier side, but it makes my skin feel so soft and smooth! And if it’s helping preserve my skin from aging, I’m all for that!
I also really try to do a face mask once a week. My personal favorite is the Fresh Rose Face Mask. The smell is not fantastic, but it’s worth the results! I’ll do my skincare routine and then apply this mask for about 10 minutes while I do a few things around the house. Again, the Fresh products are a little bit more expensive, but you get what you pay for! I’d also like to try this Philosophy mask.
I’ve been shopping around for a good anti-aging eye cream. Does anyone have any suggestions? I’d like to get one that’s not too expensive!
What are your favorite skin care products? I’d love to know! See you soon! 🙂
