School is officially back in session! Our sweet boy started 1st grade yesterday and he said he wasn’t even nervous! Is it weird to say that as the day went on, it felt like we didn’t even have summer?! I guess that’s how fast it flew by. I told my husband the other day before we know it, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year will all be here! I wish time would slow down!
Every night when I get ready for bed and go through my nighttime skincare routine, I always think I need to share it here! As I get older, I am learning more and more how important it is to find products that work for your skin and include them in a nighttime skincare routine. It doesn’t have to be this long process of applying product after product but I think giving yourself 5 minutes at the end of the day will be so beneficial in the future. Our skin is our largest organ so we have to take care of it. After many years of trying different products and cleaning out my skincare to be free of toxins (mostly), parabens and fragrance free, I think I have finally stumbled upon a regime that works! This summer has been days without makeup, just applying this glowscreen and going about my day. I don’t think I have ever felt as comfortable as I do now not wearing makeup. I will attribute that to this routine, making sure my skin stays hydrated and really focusing on applying at least an eye cream and moisturizer if I don’t feel like doing the full regime. I thought I would share with you the products I have found to work! For reference, my skin is very dry, especially in the winter time and with redness in certain spots.
CLEANSER | I started using this cleanser well over a year ago and it is the best and most affordable one I have found. Ever notice that a cleanser will really dry out your skin? Well this doesn’t! It will remove my makeup completely which is an important step to me while cleansing. This size bottle will last about 4-5 months and I use it nightly.
TONER | This is not a step I always include but I do think it’s an important one when I have just a few extra minutes.
SERUM | Can I mention that finding a good, quality serum that doesn’t contain lots of random ingredients and that’s affordable is hard to find?! But here it is!! I’ve been using this C.E.O. Glow serum that has vitamin C and is fragrance free for over a month now and I think it’s key to keeping my skin extra hydrated, smooth and glowing. Don’t skip out on your serum, it’s an important part of the skincare routine.
EYE CREAM | THE. BEST. EYE. CREAM. EVER! My under eyes used to be dull, dry, inset wrinkles, red – if there’s a word for what your under eyes are, I had it! Until I started using this eye cream regimentally. I cannot explain what a difference this has made for my under eyes. My concealer is smoother and there are days I’m completely fine without wearing concealer now thanks to what this eye cream has done!
MOISTURIZER | I started using this brand when I was pregnant and have continued to do so. It’s thick, moisturizing and I love how it makes my skin feel. It’s not overly greasy and is fragrance free, nontoxic and paraben free! The jumbo size has lasted months for me and I use it every single night.
If you have any questions about these products, I’m happy to answer them! Have a wonderful weekend!
