I’ve been thinking a lot about how quickly the years are going by, and how I love to take care of my precious babies, but also how it is so important that I take the time to care for myself. So that got me thinking about my skin, I have not been the best at taking care of my skin through the years. I think now it really is the time to take charge and help my skin stay healthy and radiant. After trying a few different things, from home made concoctions to the best of the best, I have my skin care routine down to one that I love.
One of the things I love the most about my routine is that It’s easy and fast so that I don’t have to separate a huge amount of time to just take care of my face, because let’s face it, us moms can’t just sit in a quiet room while playing relaxing music and steam our faces while we turn all negativity off and all that fun stuff. For me, it’s more like I will put all the boys to bed and be so tired that I just want to sleep! I will then remind myself that I can take the 5 minutes to do something nice for myself and the next day when I feel the amazing soft skin on me, I will pat myself on the back and say: good job momma!
My Easy Skin Care Routine-
When I first started, it was hard to navigate through all of the available products and try to find out what would be the best for me. I had some help from friends that have more knowledge in the matter and at the end, it came down to a few products that I use in the morning or evening and now it’s very simple and I am very happy with the results.
Always start with a clean face
It was amazing to see the incredible difference that cleaning my face properly would make! My skin is free to breathe and so much healthier than it used to be. I started with this amazing tool that was gifted to me by my sweet friends at Michael Todd Beauty. The Soniclear Petite Cleansing Brush, is an antimicrobial cleanse brush that you can use every day and with your favorite gentle cleanser. I use a very gentle tea tree oil cleanser that my mom gifted me, but when that is gone, I plan to use a simple one from the store that has few ingredients so that it can be gentle to my skin. The Soniclear brush is cordless and rechargeable which makes it very convenient for all of our traveling. I use my cleanser and turn it on, also it has an automatic timer that beeps to remind me to move to the next area.
You can find this amazing brush at your local Ulta Beauty store or online here.
The night crew
After my face is clean and smooth, I simply apply these two little guys. The T.L.C Framboos from some of my favorites, Drunk Elephant. This is a night serum that helps refine and resurface skin and reveal a more smooth complexion.
After that, I apply Protini™ Polypeptide Cream, also by Drunk Elephant which is an amazing protein moisturizer that also have peptides and many amazing components that help my skin be stronger and younger.
At least one of the nights of the week, I also like to do a nice mask, depending on how my skin is feeling, I like to do maybe an organic peeling or a nice hydrating mask.
The morning crew
One important thing that has been hard for me to get used to and I am still working on is to get enough sleep. After my night routine and a good night of sleep, my skin feels amazing!
To continue this great feeling I clean up my face and then apply the morning crew right here. First a nice shot of vitamin C with a few drops of this amazing oil by Beautylish. Followed by a few drops of Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil by Drink Elephant. This oil is loaded with anti-oxidants and vitamin E and it works amazing with all skin types!
After gently massaging the oils on, I apply some of the amazing Protini™ Polypetide Cream. And my skin is happy!
Don’t forget to protect from the sun
This is incredibly important! And since I am usually short in time, I LOVE to use this tinted moisturizer before going out. It’s the Stem Cellular™ CC Cream by Juice Beauty. Which I also find at my local Ulta Beauty store. It feels light on my skin and I can put some mascara and lipgloss on for a simple “no makeup” look.
For the lips
I thought I would add this amazing lip scrub that I got from a sweet small business owner! It leaves my lips so soft and smooth and ready for some lipgloss or lip balm. Check out this shop and support a fellow mom maker!
Here is one last very very important thing to remember is to drink your water! I will be doing a fun post about staying hydrated soon! so stay tuned for that! But for now, Please remember that your skin will show if you are skipping the H2O so try to remember to keep up the water intake! and your skin will tank you!
Thank you so much for reading up and let me know how your skin does when you start pampering it! I could see a difference within a few days and I loved it so much that I will never go back to ignoring my skin care.
