Hello Beauties! Hope you all are having a nice week. The weather has been a little weird here in LA for this time of year. But no complaints, I’m enjoying this cozy weather. So who’s ready for summer vacation for the kiddos! I truly enjoy having them home and a little less running around on schedules. But I’m not going to lie and say I love it also, LOL! Be sure to read next weeks blog post. I’m going to talk more about how I get ready for the kids to be home for summer. And the places we will go and things we will do to keep them busy.
Today’s post I wanted to talk about my skin routine. I won’t go into too much, because I’m not a professional and we all have different skin. So what works for me might not work for you. But I’ll talk about what I’ve added to my skin routine and what’s working for me since my skin is aging.
I turned 39 this year. I started noticing a difference in my skin last year. I noticed more age spots on my face and of course those dreadful pores no one wants to see and some texture. I’ve tried so many different brands and I’ve never been super happy with the results. They worked ok. I wanted to be committed to a routine and I wasn’t finding the perfect one. Last year back in April 2017 I went to get a facial. I loved the way my skin felt after and of course after getting facials they will recommend products. Which I recommend that to anyone who feels they just haven’t committed to a routine and nothing seems to be working. I recommend getting a facial. I think that will help you to figure out what you really need. I’ll list 2 down below that I have had services from and really like the end results.
I started using Dermalogica. I had heard of it before but never used. I love this duo. I really like the way this duo leaves my skin. . Exfoliating is so important. We live in a polluted environment and we need deep cleanse. I exfoliate 2 days a week. It’s usually on hair washing days. The daily wash is great I really feel cleansed after using. I only use this face wash at night since my face is more dirty and especially after a makeup day.
This cleanser is what I use in the morning or on days I really don’t go outside. It’s less harsh than the Dermalogica. I really love this wash for mornings because our faces are not really that dirty and I think it’s good to keep some of our natural face oils. This cleanser is very light weight and creamy. Perfect for those with sensitive skin. You can find this at Target.
Lastly the most important is daily moisture with SPF I can’t stress this enough. I really like this one and have talked about it in other post. I think we all know that this is so important. It’s been my go to for well over a year.
I didn’t want to get into what serum, oils and eye cream I use because to be honest I haven’t found those holy grails. I do have to say I use a serum with vitamin C and I am loving that so far. I want to use it more to really give my stamp of approval. I do have a blog post up on the cream I use at night. Here it is! But all the others I have listed are my Holy grails. They work for me. I have normal to dry skin. Age spots and very minor wrinkles. Hope this helped if you are looking into some new products. I’ll also list the Dermalogica products below and the places I’ve had facials at.
Have a great rest of the week. Till Next post.
