I love reading endlessly about others skincare routines. And I’m always searching for the perfect skincare routine for myself. It’s like searching for the perfect diet. Give me all the secrets, please! I’ve never had good skin. I envy the girls who are glowing and fresh faced without any makeup. I had acne when I was a teenager and still cringe when anyone touches my face. And now I’m obsessed with all the new fine lines forming. Not fun. So, this is what I’m using on a daily basis to help the (aging) fight. For me, less is more.
I start by cleansing with Purity by Philosophy. I started using Purity last winter and really fell in love with it fast. It’s light and creamy. And a huge bonus, it takes all my eye makeup off too. There’s nothing worse than having to scrub at the mascara running down your face after you wash. It makes me nuts. Especially since my under eye area seems to get thinner by the second. I also starting using this Elume cloth. I absolutely love it. Do yourself a favor and get this ASAP! It is super soft. And it dries quickly so you don’t get that weird smell like you do with thick washcloths that have been wet too long. The worst!
After cleansing I use Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench. I just added this serum to my routine recently. Pray I look 5 years younger by the end of winter. I am so picky about my moisturizer. I just don’t like the feel of putting it on my face but I get it’s a pretty important piece of the skincare puzzle. SkinMedica Ultra Sheer Moisturizer is perfect. It nice and light while hydrating my dry skin. My last step is sunscreen, of course. I’ve been using EltaMD for years. Right now, I’m using the EltaMD SPF 41. It tinted but not too tinted and oil-free. Perfect for everyday!
