Hello Gorgeous! I’m excited to share my skin care regimen with you especially since I have never really had a consistent one to rely on.
In the past you could say I was a bit careless when it came to my face and caring for my skin. I never had any problems with acne, redness, or dry/oily skin so I would just use any ole make up remover or soap to clean my face. It wasn’t until I had kids and notice my wrinkles and RBF frown lines that I became a little more serious about what I was using on my face and caring for my still youthful looking skin. Below are a few tips I have for you that I currently practice:
- Always use SPF moisturizer and make up (don’t want to get sunburned and I certainly do not need any more freckles)
- Stay away from artificial sun light
- Wash your make up off every night
- If you can don’t wear make up at all
- Use moisturizer mooring and night
- Try not to sleep on your face (I realize this seems impossible) or buy silk pillow cases
- Never pull on your face
- Do Not pick at acne or any blemishes
Now onto the products. For the past few months I have been using Tula, skin care products that are made with” Probiotic Skin Care Technology”. Let me tell you why I liked Tula before ever using the product….they are free from Parabens, Mineral oil, Petrolatum, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, and best of all NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS!!! I wanted to know more about this probiotic and come to find out topical probiotics are actually amazing for your skin! You can read more about it here. I have been using the Purifying Face Cleanser and Exfoliating Treatment Mask. Both quickly became apart of my skin care routine.
The Purifying Face Cleanser I use to remove my make up and cleanse my face of dirt when I am in the shower. The cleanser is very soft and foams up great, that is one thing when it come to face cleansers I mist have a good foaming wash. It has never dries my face out or leaves my pours feeling clogged. I do want to add that for about a month before using I had a horrible rash on my face in the crease of my nose. It was either hormonal or stress related either way it wasn’t going away at all. After using my face Cleanser from Tula after a week it was nearly gone. It is now completely gone. With some face washes my face never really felt clean and I would wash it again with another product. That is not the case with the Purifying Face Cleanser.
Exfoliating Treatment Mask hands down is my favorite part of my skin care routine. I use this exfoliating mask on Sundays (because I usually am out all weekend with a face full of make up), Wednesdays, and Fridays. I don’t like to use it everyday because I don’t want to dry my face out with all the exfoliating. This mask is amazing when it comes to removing dry flaky skin (especially in the winter months), correcting uneven skin tones, and firming. I love that this mask goes on so smoothly and soft oh and…. it dries somewhat firm so I don’t have to worry about it dripping or getting everywhere and I can carry on with any tasks while its hydrating and polishing my complexion. I don’t know about you but there is something about face masks that leave me feeling refreshed.
