I used to be really bad at taking care my skin. Like, really bad. I would go to bed with my makeup on almost every night. I hardly every moisturized. I didn’t wear any SPF. To me, my face seemed fine. My skin didn’t look fantastic, but that’s just how it had looked for as long as I can remember. Finally, in the last year or two, I kicked myself into gear and decided I was going to put legitimate effort into taking better care of my face. My face looks exponentially better now and I can’t even tell you how happy I am that I made such a positive change in my life.
Today I’m going to talk to you about the face products I use on a daily (or almost daily) basis. Some of these products I use every single day. Some of them I use less often, but are still a part of my regular routine.
Morning: My face routine in the morning is super quick and easy, typically only consisting of two products!
The Clean & Clear Cream Cleanser is my every day face wash. I use this first thing when I wake up in the morning. After using the cleanser, I moisturize. Which moisturizer I use depends on whether my makeup has any SPF in it. When I’m using a BB Cream with SPF in it, I’ll use my Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer. If I’m wearing a foundation without any SPF, especially during the summer, I’ll use the Olay Fresh Effects Moisturizer/Sunscreen.
Evening: The first product I use each evening is my Neutrogena Naturals Makeup Remover Wipes. These wipes do a great job of removing my makeup, even eye shadow and waterproof mascara. They make my face feel fresh and actually clean, unlike other wipes that leave a residue on my skin.
After the wipes, I do a quick cleanse, once again using the Clean & Clear. A few nights per week I’ll trade my cream cleanser for the Clean & Clear Exfoliating Scrub instead!
The last step in my skin care routine is the Garnier Ultra-Lift 2-in-1 Serum and Moisturizer. I want to be preventing wrinkles as much as I can now, but a regular night cream feels a lot heavier on my face and doesn’t seem necessary at this point. This gives me some of the same benefits and allows me to only use one product.
As you can see, I am not loyal to a singular brand when it comes to my skin care. I’ve tried a lot of different products from a lot of different brands, specifically drug store brands. These are the products I’m using right now, but all are ones that I’ve found myself going back to after trying something different.
Changing my skin care routine has helped by skin to look infinitely more even-toned and smooth, and has virtually eliminated any acne that was still lingering.
