Skin Care Secrets to Light Up The Room
The first thing I notice when someone walks into the room is their skin, do they have a glow? Are they tired like me? Do they have that pretty dewy look? It seems so silly but for some reason it is where my mind goes first. I know we all dream about having that beautiful skin that has a glow, a dewy look to it, and looks well rested even when we aren’t right? I mean, is that really so much to ask for?
I know I have chatted with you about this in the past, but just in the last year or so I have really made myself have a good skincare routine and I’m not just talking about my face. I will say that sometimes it still gets forgotten when I am completely exhausted, but then I pick it back up first thing in the morning. Having a routine for my skin has changed it more than anything else. I have never really struggled with acne, but I have struggled with having a even skin tone, dryness and having that glow that we all search for to it. These are things that I knew that I really wanted and if I wanted them then I needed to make some changes to my skincare routine.
I am excited to share with you some tips and some products that have really changed my skin and have helped me so much in my skincare routine. These may seem like silly things, but when I forget them I know that my skin suffers no matter how big or small each step is in the routine.
1 – Being consistent. This one was the hardest for me. I was really good about doing things here or there, but making sure that I am consistent in my skincare routine is a must. I still miss a day here or there, but making sure that I do the same steps no matter what is key. I have found that if I wash my face earlier in the night than when I am super tired and struggling to stay awake it gets done so much more than if I wait until I am ready to be tucked in at night. I now wash my face while King is in the tub and it works great for helping me to remember.
2 – Using products that you trust and work for your skin. I love using the Aveeno Positively Radiant line. I know that Aveeno is a brand that I love and trust and works really well with my skin type. They give me the refresh and boost every day that I know my skin needs. I use the Positively Radiant 60-Second In-Shower Facial and this has been my favorite thing that I have added to my routine. It makes the shower even more like a spa trip (which I didn’t know could happen) and I know that I am taking care of my face even when showering. I also love their Positively Radiant Sheer Hydration for underneath my makeup in the mornings. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy and my makeup stays put just as good as on its own. The Positively Radiant Body Lotion we all fight over who gets to use it. I put this on every time after I shower, at night before I go to bed and then again in the morning on my dry patches when I am getting ready. Being consistent and using good products has helped my skin to not be so dry which is quite the task with Utah winters! I truly feel like I can light up a room when I use good products!
3 – Make your routine something simple. Your skincare routine can’t be too much or you won’t do it right? At least that is how I am. I try to keep it simple of things like washing my face, applying moisturizer to my face and body, and the in shower facial so I know it is something that I can keep up with long term and it doesn’t overwhelm me.
