Ever since my last birthday (the big 2-7), I’ve made an effort to step up my skin care game. I’m not getting any younger and I’m willing to put in a little extra work to keep my skin looking as fresh as possible. And, based on the fact that I get told I don’t look as old as I am at least once a week, I’d say it’s working!
I’ve been using the following products nightly and my skin has been in tip top shape lately. Keep in mind that this is what works for me–feel free to leave any tips or suggestions in the Comments section!
Step 1: Take it off–your makeup, that is! I’m currently using Bioderma, but there are plenty of similar drugstore products out there. I focus mostly on my eye makeup and I find that this cleansing water does a great job of removing any mascara or liquid liner.
Step 3: Time to tone. I’ve been using the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Triple-Action Toner for quite a while and I find that it leaves my skin feeling extra clean and fights blemishes.
Step 4: Oil up! I’m a huge fan of facial oils so this is definitely my favorite step. I’m currently using Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate but I’ve also used tarte’s Maracuja Oil and Boots Botanics’ Organic Facial Oil. They’re all great in my opinion!
Step 5: Moisturize. If there’s one skin care item I don’t mind splurging on every now and then, it’s moisturizers. My current eye cream is this one by Ahava. For night cream, I alternate between Philosophy’s Hope in a Jar Night and L’Oreal’s Youth Code Texture Perfector Day/Night Cream
Phew–that seems like a lot of work when I type it all out but it’s a process I’ve really come to enjoy. Please feel free to share any of your favorite skin care products with me!
