Almost 30 Skincare Routine

With a little over 5 months until I turn the dreaded 3-0, I decided it was time to get serious about my skin. I’ve always had pretty decent skin, but I do have some bad habits, like going to sleep without taking off my makeup, that I wanted to break. After a few months of trying out different skincare products, I have a pretty decent skincare routine down that is simple and effective.

First Aide Beauty Ultra Repair Cream | First Aid Beauty Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer | Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping  Oil | Kate Somerville Exfolikate | Pacifica Cactus Revive Face Wash | Glam Glow ThirstyMud Mask | Pixi Double Cleanse | Black Diamond Essentials Carbon Wash

A.M.: I wash my face with Pacifica Cactus Revive face wash in the shower. I apply First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream and let it soak in while I get dressed and Alex ready. Before applying makeup, I put on a thin coat of the First Aid Beauty Priming Moisturizer and apply makeup as usual.

P.M.: I remove makeup using Pixi Double Cleanse. I wash my face with the Black Diamond Essentials Carbon Wash and apply Luna Night Oil and let soak in for 5 minutes. I follow with First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream.

2-3x a week: Exfoliate with Kate Somerville Exfolikate. [The price tag may seem a little steep for an exfoliator, but trust me it is worth every penny!] Use Glam Glow ThirstyMud mask for some extra hydration. I also use the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion as a spot treatment, when needed.

Even though I am loving this routine, I am a total skincare junkie and constantly looking for awesome new products to help my aging skin. Don’t be surprised if you see and updated routine in the near future!

  1. Oh, the big 3-0 isn’t so bad! 🙂 I’ll be 33 in July, and I kind of wonder what the big deal was now. But 4-0… that seems way too crazy to even TRY to wrap my head around…..good thing it’s like 8 years off! Whew! lol. I was like you, though, in that I had some bad habits. Truthfully, I still sleep with my makeup on more times than I’d care to confess, haha. I’m all for simple as well. Your regimen looks great! Lately, mine has been cleansing/moisturizing with oil (jojoba or coconut at present), extra moisture with Plexus body cream, and using an exfoliator every couple of days. I need to reorder 100% Pure konjak sponge – it was the best I’ve ever used, and I would simple wash my face with that plus water and then apply a few drops of an oil blend as moisturizer each morning and/or night – so simple! My problem is with dryness and a skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis, and I’ve been using Plexus products, which have helped to heal my gut and get that in check, and in turn, it has helped my skin a great deal. So interesting/neat that every area of our health affects everything else, huh?! 🙂

  2. I’ve heard great things about Pacifica but haven’t tried any of their products yet–thanks for sharing your routine! I’m a total skincare junkie as well! 😛
