More on skincare...

So, I just wanted to update you guys on my "everyday" skincare routine.  Well, basically fill you in on the products I use.  I use the word "routine" loosely, as I won't even pretend like I have some day and night time ritual that I follow religiously.  I don't.  If follow it about 75% of the time, I'm happy.

Anyway, the picture above basically what I use on my skin on a daily (or almost daily) basis.  I'm all out of the face wash that I've been using the most recently, which is this one.  So, I've been using a liquid African black soap that I'd gotten at my local health food store.  I use the facial cleanser with my Clariasonic Mia 2 once or twice a day.  After cleansing my face, I use this Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C serum that was sent to me months ago to try.  This serum is suppose to even skin tone, increase glow & radiance, and reduce fine lines.  I can't attribute all my skin improvements on this Valentia serum, but I can say that it has done well as part of my line up.  So, after the serum, I apply a moisturizer to my face, neck, and decolletage.  At night, I apply the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair moisturizer--of which I can't rave enough about.  This stuff works WONDERS!  Seriously, if you're over 30 years old and are not using a moisturizer at night that contains retinol, you are doing a disservice to yourself.  It totally makes the skin look younger, gives it a glow and definitely reduces fine lines and wrinkles.  This is the one product that I do make sure to use almost every night.  Now, in the mornings after cleansing my face, I moisturize with the Neutrogena Oil-Free moisturizer that has SPF 35.  If you do use a moisturizer that contains retinol, it is imperative that you use a moisturizer during the day that has at least an SPF 30.  I won't go into why here.  Just trust me on this.

Oh and I've still been using the Exuviance peel about once every couple weeks.  This has made a big difference in the texture of my skin as well.

So that my friends is my current skincare routine in a nutshell.  Feel free to ask me any questions if you have. Be sure to check out more Valentia products HERE.

Have a great weekend!
