As I dig through the archive of photos stored on my phone, I notice something quite amazing: I don’t have the face that I used to have. I got a face transplant! Okay…you called my bluff. My face hasn’t been transplanted, but transformed and I owe this difference to my “new” face routine.
A routine is something that is done consistently. I would say that I have followed this routine at least 5 days out of the week for over 6 months, so I’m pretty consistent. The difference that I can see is subtle, but awesome.
I’ve been told that I have pretty normal skin (by makeup professionals). I’m not quite sold on this statement, but I have noticed that I don’t need to focus my battle on too many pimples. My new fight is with black heads and occasional breaks outs (yay).
Here’s what I do:
In the morning my routine is very minimal. I cleanse my face with warm water, pop in my contacts, and then moisturize it with Neutrogena Naturals. That’s it! My time is precious and the morning and once I read an article about the benefits of water only in the morning I knew that I had to give it a try.
At night I cleanse my face with Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Face Cleanser and don’t moisturize. I tried using their Nourishing Night Cream for awhile, but it was too much for my face. I noticed my face was oily and I was having frequent breakouts so it had to go.
I plan on sticking with this routine because my complexion has improved overall: more even color and better elasticity. It’s also affordable (click the links for pricing) and easy to follow.
Note: I also do not put a rag to my face to wash it or dry my face off with a towel.
Cheers to water,
