They're SUPER easy. Trust me.
How many times have you had the best intentions about your skincare routine only to find yourself TOO TIRED to keep up with it?
At this stage in our lives, having to use 4, 5, or 6 products on our face a day is not only expensive, but time consuming. With careers, families, and everything else we do---AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!
Here are some VERY SIMPLE tips to help you get younger looking skin in no time!
WASH YOUR FACE EVERY NIGHT
Yes, you read that right. Every night. But the good thing is this: you don’t have to use soap anymore!
There are some amazing products on the market that allow you to remove dirt, grime, and make-up without ever having to turn on the faucet. I LOVE Garnier’s Micellar Water. It’s so easy to use and it cleans my skin without a lot of harsh chemicals or scrubbing.
In your mid-30’s and beyond? Be careful not to wash your face with water more than once a day. As we age, our skin’s oil production slows down and washing your face too much can make fine lines and wrinkles look more prevalent.
USE THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS
Folks, you can slather on as much night cream as you want, but if it doesn’t have the right stuff in it… you are wasting your time.
You should make sure your products (both daytime and nighttime) have most, if not all, of the following ingredients:
Peptides: This fills in and smooths the skin. This can also help get rid of dark circles and puffiness
Retinols or Retinoids (less irritating than Retinols): This reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots
Niacinamides (Vitamin B3): Brightens the skin
Hyaluronic Acid: Draws moisture into the skin to plump it up and volumize it
These ingredients will work WONDERS for your skin. Trust me—I’ve seen them in action.
SIMPLIFY YOUR ROUTINE
Up until about 3 months ago, I used anywhere from 4-6 products on my face PER DAY, EVERY DAY (not including the Micellar water and make-up). To hit all the ingredients listed above, I needed to put on a daytime moisturizer (with SPF, of course), an eye cream, a hyaluronic acid gel cream, and a nighttime moisturizer. If my skin was breaking out (which was often), I had to add an acne cream. And once I hit my 30’s, I had to add a SUPER-DUPER moisturizing serum for the winter months when the air was dryer, than dry.
But now I’m down to just 2 products! Yes, you read that right. And that’s because I use a super-easy 2-step skin care system that I can find the time to do. And I can actually afford it. Want to learn more about this system? Schedule a free video chat with me so I can tell you all about it.
DID YOU GET VALUE?
I hope so. Because it’s my mission to help you reclaim yourself, so that you can be the best career person, spouse, parent, significant other---WHATEVER!!---that you can be!
