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!
