I'm SOOOO HAPPY & EXCITED to be here on Jenna's blog! Jenna and I share LOTS of similarities (including our awesome name!) and I just love her! One of our passions is our love of beauty & makeup! We thought it would be fun to share our skincare routines with you all! Me on her blog, and her guest hosting on my blog!
I am Jenna, by the way, and I blog over at The Life of the Wife! I should mention that I used to be (in my previous life before becoming a full-time-SAHM) a makeup artist for Bobbi Brown. It was SUCH an amazing time in my life, and I miss it a LOT a LOT! I continue to learn and soak up EVERYTHING I can in regards to makeup & beauty. I have become kind of nuts about my skin lately..after having a baby and seeing the effects it took on my body/face!
|That's ME! :)|
So, without any further rambling from me (I tend to do that more often than I realize), here is my skincare routine (and a pretty easy one if you want to start in on your own skin)!
WASH--Sometimes I am too busy to do this, I'm not gonna lie, but on days that I do--I never regret it! I use Cetaphil Cleanser because my skin is super sensitive, and breaks out EASILY! Washing your face is a MUST MUST to get all the dirt, oil, and daily disgusting stuff (technical term :) off of your face!
TONE--Toning my face is a MUST. I switch often, but right now I use a really gentle toner (Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner). It doesn't make my skin red, and keeps my pores clean!
EXFOLIATE (Twice a week)--I LOVE LOVE Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate. It has done AMAZING things for my skin. My skin always feels glow-y & smooth for days after.
MOISTURIZE--If I do nothing else, I ALWAYS ALWAYS moisturize. My favorite (for my dry/sensitive skin) is Bobbi Brown's Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm SPF 25. It hydrates and protects my skin all day! Obsessed!!
It's pretty much the same as the morning, except I add a REPAIR step in there.
REPAIR--Start early, girls! It's never too early to start preventing those pesky wrinkles!! I use Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Supplement. I have been a lover of this ever since I tested this on my hand wrinkles for two weeks straight and my lines LITERALLY disappeared. I use it on my face & neck at night right before I moisturize.
..........AND SLEEP (which is also INCREDIBLE for your skin! :)
