Recently, I posted this picture on Facebook.
After seeing it, a friend asked me what I was using to wash my face. At first, I thought she was being funny and then I thought about it. My skin has been looking a little better lately. They say, “give face” and I’ve been working on mine. Maybe it was starting to show? I had certainly noticed a difference in my skin and now it seemed like I wasn’t the only one noticing. I figured I’d share my winter skincare routine here. Something I do may work for you too… and vice versa.
Although we don’t have the harshest of winter weather around these parts – there is a definite change in the air. It gets MUCH cooler at night, even if it had been 70 degrees during the day, it may very well be in the 50s at night. Those dips in temperatures had been taking a toll on my face. I told my husband that I felt like my face felt drier and looked grey-ish. He reminded me that I had a face brush I’d bought a while ago and hadn’t used. I don’t know how I’d forgotten! I went straight to the bathroom and pulled out the Olay Advanced Pro-X Cleansing System.
I had ordered it from Amazon months ago because I was too cheap to get a Clarisonic. I had put it under the sink and forgot about it. Once I started using it, I saw a change in my skin almost immediately. My skin was smoother and brighter just like that! It came with an exfoliating cleanser and I use it with the brush every other day or so.
Here’s my rundown of my daily routine:
I wash with Kelly Teegarden Organic Facial Cleanser (alternating with the Olay exfoliating cleanser). I follow that with Carol’s Daughter toner and moisturizer.
If it’s cooler out and I feel like I might need more moisture, I add a littler Argan oil over the moisturizer.
The Olay brush has really helped to get rid off that winter dullness. Love that thing! What’s your must-have for skin care? Give it to me! I might need to add it in the mix!
**I was not compensated for talking about any of the brands mentioned. I just really like them and wanted to share**
