First thing in the morning I wake up and wash my face with Aveeno Face Wash and rinse. I then apply my fav face cream Retinol Advanced, no matter if I’m wearing makeup or not for the day. I won’t put it on if I’m going straight to the gym after I drop off the kids. I’ll save it for after my gym shower and then I’ll smear it on. Fun, huh!
Let’s be honest…it takes a village!
On a very cold day and my skin needs more help I’ll use some Olay cream as a secondary backup. But again, after I’m done with my exercise. No sense in wasting on sweat!
At the end of the day I’ll wash off my makeup again with either Aveeno Face Wash or the Aveeno scrub, if I have more makeup than usual. I follow with an astringent…sometimes. I know. I know, I need to get better at it. I never had much acne prone skin. Knock on wood! Afterwards, I apply my night creams of Olay Regenerist sometimes or if I feel my skin needs something more, I slap on again my Fav Face Cream or Retinol Advanced! A little Vitamin E oil and good night! If there’s a zit, I use Tea Tree Oil and let is soak in all night long.
And my favorite before a big event or date night I use my face lift in a jar! My Alpha Hydroxy Cream. This is better than them Diva Rings. And no a Diva Ring is not contraceptive related either. Google it! This fav cream literally gives you fresh renewed skin without going under the knife and shelling out thousands! WARNING: I don’t recommend using everyday and you must use SPF the next few days if outdoors. All instructions should be on the jar. And don’t use before going to an outdoor sunny event. And remember less is best. It has 7.8% Gylcolic Acid. Rule of thumb here is don’t go over 10% if using it sparingly at home.
This is how I use it. Let’s say I’m having date night with my Big Kahuna or I just want my skin to feel refreshed for the weekend and without going to see an esthetician. I would prepare 3 days ahead of my event, date, or weekend. And do I this consecutively for 3 nights. That would be Wed., Thurs., & Friday. I take a nickel size of the cream on my finger tips and rub in (not on eyelids or inside the nose…who does that!). I also use it on my neck and back of hands. This will soak in all night and do it’s work. It will revive and encourage new cells. I would begin minimally because it has a slight tingling effect.
I’m becoming a bit more consistent and daring and now I’m trying charcoal mask sheets and mud cream masks every hump day. That’s Wednesday, you know that right?
A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Let me know which one’s you tried and like.
