This is me without a stitch of makeup (and applying moisturizer, obviously). I have freckles, uneven patches, redness, a few pimples, and melasma that is setting up a permanent residence on my upper lip (caused from pregnancy hormones). Basically, I have a normal face, because hardly anyone in the world has perfect skin, although photo editing in magazine spreads and on blogs would tell you otherwise.
My skin is annoyingly sensitive, and was reacting to my makeup — from the multiple layers of products I was putting on it, to the makeup remover wipes and cleansers to take it off, it started getting red and stingy anytime there were harsh chemicals on it. I had to start taking breaks from wearing any makeup at all to let my skin take a breather, especially around my eyes. You know something is wrong when it feels as though your makeup is burning off your face, right?
Anyway, when I was approached about the Simple Skincare line, I dove in head first because it sounded exactly like the type of skincare product I needed. It specifically keeps the sensitive-skinned folks in mind by doing away with harsh chemicals, perfumes, dyes and parabens, and is packed multi-vitamins.
- Wash face in the morning with Simple Skincare Foaming Cleanser. Exfoliate with this facial scrub brush three times per week.
- Apply a pea-sized dab of Simple Skincare Protecting Light Moisturizer and rub into face and neck. Let soak in. Apply a light layer the Ultra-light Gel Moisturizer as a primer for makeup. Let it dry and then apply makeup.
- At night, remove eye makeup with Simple Skincare Eye Make-up Remover Pads, and then all over facial makeup with the Cleansing Facial Wipes. Lather on a thick coat of the Nourishing Night Cream, drink a big glass of water, and sleep! (Good sleep is sooo important for good skin!)
Does this sound familiar? It does for me. After reading up on that survey, it has inspired me to be better about leading a lifestyle that promotes healthy skin and overall well-being, instead of only a routine. Along with my listed routine, I am going to eat more skin superfoods, drink more water, de-stress more often. (Or try to anyway!)
