Luke has been sick and teething the last few days so he has been waking up through the night (which is unlike him) and we have been doing lots of snuggling during the day. I haven't taken much time for myself in these last few days so while Luke napped yesterday, I enjoyed a long shower and a facial scrub. Exfoliating my skin totally refreshed my tired complexion and made me feel much more awake.
I have had people ask what products I use and what my beauty routine is so here are my basics. Eye creams, serums and masks are great too but this routine will get your skin on the right track and for me, keep me feeling great. As we start our family, I am more conscious of my spending so I have detailed the high and low end products that I have used and love.
Eye Makeup Remover - CBV Oily Eye Pads
Face Wash - CBV Botanical Gel Cleanser
Moisturizer - CBV Vitamin Enriched Defence Cream
Scrub - CBV Papaya Scrub
Eye Makeup Remover - Equate Cleansing Cloths
Face Wash - Aveeno Positively Radiant
Moisturizer - Ponds Dry Skin Cream
Scrub - E-mergin C Micro Scrub (CBV)
I remove my eye makeup first. You can use your face wash but in my experience it is more work to get your eye makeup off that way.
Next I clean my skin with my face wash, towel dry and apply my moisturizer.
I exfoliate my skin with a scrub once a week, this step takes place after my face wash and before moisturizer. Exfoliating allows moisturizer to absorb deeper into the skin and refines pores.
In the morning I just rinse my skin with water and apply my moisturizer.
Lastly, I know you have heard this a million times but drink lots of water. Hydrated skin will age more gracefully.
