BEAUTY

Welcome to my Beauty page! Now that I’ve turned a whopping 40 years old, I’m focusing more on skincare and antiaging products. Here I’ll be sharing my updated skin care regimen and favorite finds.

MY DAILY SKINCARE REGIMEN

MORNING ROUTINE:

Cleanse.
I don’t have super sensitive skin, so I can get away with using drugstore brand cleansers. My favorite one is Clean & Clear Essentials Foaming Facial Cleanser because it fights zits (which I still get even at this age!) and isn’t overdrying. Also, it’s super cheap.

Firm.
I’ve been combatting fine lines and wrinkles since my 20s, but now I’ve reached the age where I have to bring in the big guns to fight deeper lines and creases. I use Estee Lauder Perfectionist wrinkle-lifting and firming serum day and night. I love the velvety texture it leaves my skin and I see an immediate difference after applying it.

Protect.
I have been wearing sunscreen on my face every day since I was a teenager. I love Lancome Bienfait UV SPF 50+ Super Fluid Facial Sunscreen. It was my first fancy makeup product and I still love it. I also use  Neutrogena Ultra Sheer 3 oz. Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 100 for more intense days outdoors.

Finish.
I moisturize and treat my fine lines with Dior Hydra Life Pro Youth Sorbet.

 

BEFORE BED:

Cleanse.
Since I shower at night, I keep Clean & Clear Night Relaxing Deep Cleaning Face Wash next to my shampoo and conditioner. I think the only difference from the normal cleanser is that this one has a scent, like relaxing aromatherapy before bed.

Exfoliate.
I use Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-In-1 Fight & Fade Acne Toner. This product claims that it will fade acne scars with continued use, but that is a lie. I have seen no difference in my zit scars. But I still like the product because it does a great job of digging out all the oil, dirt, makeup, and dead cells that the cleanser leaves behind.

Remove.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover is a great product for removing stubborn eye makeup (especially if you have lash extensions!) and matte lipcolor. I don’t use it all over my face because it feels a little oily to me.

Firm.
I apply Estee Lauder Perfectionist day and night. It is one of my favorites for sure.

Smooth.
I received Dior ‘Capture Totale – Universal Texture’ Multi-Perfection Creme for Christmas from my neighbor and I love the feeling of its rich creaminess on my face.

Target.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Recovery Complex II is another product I have been using for years and would not stray away.

Extras.
Hairgenics Lavish Lash — for eyelash growth
bbrow Nourishing Brow Oil — for eyebrow growth
Estee Lauder Lip Conditioner — to recover from matte lip abuse
