Welcome to Skincare Sunday! I will update my skincare routine as I change products. I will also do some separate reviews and mask routines.
Part of a friend's New Year's Resolution was to take better care of her skin. I had never thought of making this a resolution but she was totally on to something. I definitely need to make this a mid-year resolution.
When I was working full-time, it was a lot easier for me to get into a routine with my skincare. I would shower in the morning, then moisturize my face and body right after I got out. Now that I am a stay-at-home mommy, it's harder to get into a routine. It seems making the baby breakfast comes before washing my face, then so do a million other things. I also shower in the afternoon or evening during the week so I am a bit backwards of what I used to do.
So, back to the resolution board I go - better late than never. I put a pump bottle of the Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser by my toothbrush to remind myself to wash and moisturize my face when I brush my teeth (no excuses!). The Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser is in the shower for when I shower at night. Both lotions are in the linen closet so I can use them right after doing my face.
I usually use a mask at least once a week to control the oily parts of my skin. The Microdermabrasion wand stays in my shower and I will use that once a week as well to exfoliate.
So here's the current rundown of my skincare routine:
Aveeno Positively Radiant Brightening Cleanser
Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer - SPF 15
Neutrogena Pore Refining Exfoliating Cleanser
Neutrogena Pore Refining Daily Cleanser
Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion - SPF 15
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Eye Cream
Freeman Avocado & Oatmeal Mask
Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask
Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System
Up & Up Blackhead Facial Scrub (Target brand of Clean & Clear Blackhead Eraser)
When I run out of the Aveeno, I will probably make the Neutrogena Pore Refining Cleansers my morning routine. I want to try the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer to get some retinol back into my facial care. I used to use the Retin-A Micro for acne and it really evened out my skin tone. Plus retinol helps as an anti-wrinkle treatment, so it's great to get started early!
