Just recently I stepped up my nightly face-cleansing routine as well as what’s in my make-up bag. An epic trip to Sephora will to that to a person. I’ve found that while I am not getting the sleep I should be getting, I can take steps to avoid looking like I was hit by a truck every morning.
What works for me: at night I remove my makeup with cleansing wipes- I think they are just plain Target brand. Then I’ll usually wash with St Ive’s apricot face scrub, also from Target. In the morning I’m looking fresh. This is what I try to remember each night when I’m too tired to think about a “routine”.
Now, before I put on my makeup I have been using the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer SPF 20 and hello, this is heaven in a tube. Very expensive but I’d probably pay double (don’t tell them that.)
All of that primpy stuff (which I’m usually not that into) totally does make me feel more fresh faced and like a younger Mom. I should also add that I always have a water or iced green tea (unsweetened) in my hand, hydrating all day long. I am hoping that I can make up for all the years I didn’t pay enough attention to my skin, and for all the sleepless nights of motherhood.
It’s all worth it, of course.
What’s your routine? Any products you can’t live without?
