I remember the good ol’ days when all I needed was Noxema. That blue tub of cleanser made me feel as if I had rubbed Icy Hot all over my face and it was glorious.
For the past couple years I’ve been making a big effort to find a skincare routine that works and to stick to it. Of course there are nights when I’m so tired that I just fall asleep in whatever I wore that day, makeup & all.
My skin is far from flawless. I have some sun damage from my tanning-bed days in high school and am constantly struggling with bumps underneath my skin. From time to time I’ll go in for Hydrafacials + extractions. Those are simply amazing. If you’ve ever considered getting one I highly recommend it. I do get Botox in my forehead and will probably never stop. It’s affordable and I love the results.
Aside from my night routine, the only thing I consistently do in the morning is use this moisturizer. I use it right before putting my makeup on and on non-makeup days. It is not greasy and keeps my dry skin hydrated all day. I also use this dermaplaning tool 1-2x a week.
I swear by this Lash Boost serum. I’ve been using it for almost a year now and it is liquid gold in a tube. I put it on my lash line and even my eyebrows a few times a week after I’ve removed all my makeup. I love it so much that I’ve given a tube to my mom, little sister and a few of my girlfriends. It is THAT GOOD. You will not be disappointed if you give it a try!
My new, current obsession are these tanning drops. You simply mix in 1-2 drops in your moisturizer and rub it in before you go to bed. It’s subtle and gradually builds color. It’s nice to wake up with a little glow and pep in your step.
I’ve been using this jelly cleanser , exfoliatoing skin perfector and serum for over a year now and cannot say enough good things. The cleanser is gentle and melts away your makeup. The exfoliating solution brightens and smooths your skin. I saw a big difference in my skin after using it for 3 weeks. With Vitamin B5 and Hyaluranic Acid, the super bounce serum is perfect if your skin is dehydrated and needs a little plumping. It leaves your skin feeling so soft & smooth. It’s currently sold out but you can get on their mailing list to be notified when it’s back in stock OR you could try their other two serums: Super Glow & Super Pure.I’ve also used this trusty Clarisonic since 2005. It gets all the dirt and makeup out of your pores at the end of the day and helps your skin absorb products. The last product I put on before going to bed is this lip night repair cream. IT IS MAGIC. And so neccessary in the winter & summer. You can also get it HERE & HERE.
