Last November, I was a month away from turning the “BIG 3-0”. Like most women leaving their 20’s behind, I made comments about aging and called myself “old” a few times. Don’t get me wrong, 30 is NOT old. Mentally and emotionally, I gladly welcomed the next decade; a new chapter in my life’s story with a focused-optimistic outlook and rejuvenated drive to accomplish the things I hadn’t thus far.
Physically, I quivered at the thought of being 30. This decade would include taking care of my skin! Y’all, my 20’s saw little to no sunscreen and far too many “fell asleep in a full face of make-up” nights. 30 is NOT old, but it was time for me to make a valiant effort to keep my face looking as youthful as I felt. After a year of facials, peels, creams, and sun visors, I finally had beautiful glowing skin. And here we are, getting ready for the cold months that often lead to dull-dry skin. I’m sharing my favorite products for merry and bright skin all winter long! And this daily routine totally counts as mom pampering.
Winter Skincare Must-Haves
1- Scrub and Peel
Two times a week, I help my cells turnover. This is my favorite step of skincare.
For a quick 5 minute pick me up: Erno Laszlo Vitamin C Peel. This was given to me for free from Influenster and I absolutely love it! It’s a perfect simple mom pampering product.
2- Cleanse morning and night
Thanks to my sister in law, I use Soap&Glory Vitamin C Facial Cleanser that looks and smells as pretty as it makes you feel! I love the gentle beads for a mild daily scrub and the Yuzu gives it a subtle and refreshing tingle.
Winter months require lots of moisture! The name says it all: Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief from Clinique.
I also like to add even more vitamin c to my skin with Image Skincares Vital C Hydrating A C E Serum.
4- Eye care
HELP!! To be honest, I haven’t found an eye cream that I swear by. I use a couple different ones in the morning and night because the skin around your eyes is so thin and it’s important to stay moisturized, but if you have an eye cream you love, please share it with me in the comments below!
I have two products that I love! Depending on how dry your skin is feeling:
For more moisture, I like the oil-free, SPF 30 Control Corrective.
For a lightweight non greasy protection, I use LaRoche-Posay. Say What.. SPF 60!?! This is my year round go to, but I keep it in my purse all winter too.
6- Stay Hydrated
Aside from drinking plenty of water, it’s important to keep your face hydrated throughout the day. This Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist is refreshing and keeps you moisturized. Check out the ingredients… 100% natural!
7- Lip love
Not only do I love to exfoliate my lips with a simple sugar scrub weekly, I apply chapstick multiple times a day. I’ve got at least six tubes floating around my diaper bag at all times, so I use whichever one I find first. Just keep those lips soft!
Hope you can find lots of winter skincare love for your face, regardless of your age. I’m looking forward to being 31 and glowing in a couple weeks!
Lots of Love,
