We have been chatting a lot on my stories the past few months about skincare. It is something that I have been working really hard to get into a routine with. I use to be the person who never ever washed my face. I had some face wash, but it would last me years and years before having to buy new because I just didn’t ever use it. The older I get the more I realize that I am going to regret it if I don’t start taking better care of my skin and it will show as I age that I haven’t taken care of it. I am so excited to share with you my go hacks and my favorite product that makes skincare a little easier for me.
I have found some things that have really helped me to take better care of my skin, get the makeup off my face, and make sure that I am not leaving it dry. These are some simple hacks that have changed the game for me when it comes to my skin care and I am so excited to share them with you in hopes that they help you too.
1 – Keep a basket under or in your night stand with 2 products that will make your life so much easier. This has been the biggest game changer for me. I am the first to say that I miss some nights when it comes to my full skincare routine. However, I always make sure to take my makeup off. I keep Equate Fragrance Free Makeup Remover Towelettes & my moisturizer in my basket. I choose the Equate Makeup Remover Towelettes because they are fragrance free meaning they are more gentle on my skin, they also have essential oils in them which I love, and the remove all my makeup including my waterproof mascara that I wear on my lower lashes. I also can snag them at Walmart while I am grocery shopping so I love that I don’t have to make an extra stop for them. Then no matter how tired I am, I can climb into bed, wipe my makeup off, put some moisturizer on, and go right to sleep. It makes me have the products easily accessible, they are super affordable, and convenient which is key.
2 – Put your skincare routine into a place in your life that you will remember it. I always try to wash my face while King is in the bath. We are already in the bathroom and he is in the tub. I can see him so I am not leaving him alone and I am getting something done that is important to me while he baths. The other nice thing is now that I do it most of the time King reminds me and asks me when I am going to wash my face while he is in the tub.
3 – Don’t be too hard on yourself. Consistency is key when it comes to taking care of your skin, but at the same time it is better to do it sometimes than not at all. If you miss a few days, start over! If you don’t I promise you that you will look back and think “if only I would have restarted sooner”. Skincare is something that is so important so just do your best, that is all you can do!
I hope these simple little hacks makes your skincare a little bit easier for you to remember to do and for you to get it done. It has been game changing for me and I hope it can before you too!
