New Year New Skin-care Routine

face 2


Adding to the New Years Resolutions Floating around the blogosphere I wanted to talk to y'all briefly of my skin care plans for this year. I have always battled with my skin. Always. I used to have super oily skin. Then horrible acne. Then it got super dry. Somewhere in the last few years the acne has mostly dried up (thank goodness) but the oil is back--- and long days at a desk tend to make a gal forget to reapply her powder. I realized a few weeks ago that my skin routine was really non existent. Whatever face wash happened to be in the shower would suffice in the morning... at night I might use a washcloth and some warm water-- if I bothered to take my makeup off at all. Horrible I know. I know. I spend far too much time in front of the mirror applying makeup, and more than that... far too much money on my makeup, to waste on a poorly maintained canvas. 

So it's time to turn over a new leaf. Washing with my ProX. Toning to keep away oil. Moisturizing. Adding eye cream to fight bags and wrinkles. Gentile at home peels and regular exfoliation. That's my plan. Any suggestions? Or product ideas? These are a few I've tried samples of, or have used over the years. But I'm always looking for new ideas!

Happy Thursday!

I am the worst when it comes to skin care. I basically wash my face and leave it at that. Need to add some pizazz to my routine.

Loving your blog. Happy to be a new follower!

I love the Clinique Moisture Surge! It's so good for my skin in the winter!

I'm in my 30s and I always get compliments that my eyes don't have any lines around them -- I swear it's because I started using Kiehl's Abyssine Eye Cream + way back in my early 20s. I love it!

I love Clinique Moisture Surge too!! And I'm with you on the eye cream for bags... definitely something that I plan on using a lot of in 2013!

I definitely need a makeover on my makeup removing routine. I'm like you, I rarely remember/care enough to take it off at night, and in the morning, whatevers in the shower. Going to fix that.

Loving Clinique Moisture Surge, especially at night or during a day I simply don't want to put make-up on. And Neutrogena is my favorite, it works well on my sensitive skin. ;)

Oooo I want the fabulips! I think I need something like that. Also to add to the list, during the summer I do Clinique's Super City Block to fight off wrinkles from the sun :)

My clarisonic is life changing... Promise. I wash with neutrogeona yellow face wash in the morning, and a scrb at night. I also love my Benefit "It's Potent" Eye Cream. And I love my aveeno positively radient moisturizer with spf 45. I can't wait to hear all about the sugar lip scrb...I've been wanting to try Fresh's brand of that!!! oxo

Ok here is my two cents worth. I love skin care products, and think taking care of your skin is very ULTRA important. I think you need to stick with one product line that you like-example Clinique, Lancome, Prescriptives, etc etc etc. I found a line that I like made a appointment with a consultant from that line, and never looked back, and I get many compliments on my skin. You are gorgeous and now is the time to start taking care of your skin, because no amount of make-up can cover up bad skin. Happy New Year!!

Just came across your blog! This is a great plan!

I got the clarisonic mia 2 for Christmas and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! I have heard a lot of great things about the Clinique moisture surge.

I'm a fan of "Say Yes to Cucumbers" products... affordable and easy on the skin! :)
