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!
