I know I am guilty not washing my face every night especially since I wear makeup every day. I know you must be thinking then there goes your dirty pillow makeup on it from last night or two nights ago. So recently I have been very consistent and I see the results at the end of the third day when I wash my face in the morning and night and use my skin regiment. I have been a big fan of #LauraMercier skin care. But last year I invested in #Laneige a Korean skin regiment that had serum day and night cream. It also had sleeping mask, you just have to put it on your skin at night and not worry about washing. Since that was last year I am running out, so in order to maintain a balance on not going over the makeup spending limit when I notice that I am low on eye cream or face cream or face polish I replace it and when I am out of the jar I have the replacement ready to use. Not all products finish at once, so when I notice the next jar or tube of skin care low I replace it and when time comes for me to make the purchase its one item I don’t have to worry about it being too expensive and I can’t afford the list of 5-4 items that I need to maintain my beautiful skin looking young and ageless. Currently I wash with #Boscia black cleanser it already has small exfoliating agents. But in addition to my cleanser I use #LaureMercier Face Polish. I have a combination skin with tones of blemishes – you know when you see that zit on your skin you’re trying to make sure that it’s gone ASAP! My nose cheeks and forehead is oily, my chin is dry. I use Face Polish at least once a week maybe every other week unless my skin is very blotchy. How can you tell if your skin is blotchy? When your foundation goes on your skin you notice uneven skin surface hence for the face polish. I apply my #Laneige skin serum that I still have, then moisturizer and eye cream. I squeeze in #SKII toner couple times after I wash my skin with my cleanser – when I feel that my skin needs extra balance I use the toner. You will see a difference. It’s a matter of repetition and maintaining your skin. Same goes with diet and exercise routine. It shouldn’t matter what products used because everyone’s skin is different and reacts to products differently. IT IS IMPORTANT to wash and keep a routine.
