Both my grandmother and my mother have always looked younger than their age. Their skin has been able to look youthful through their years. I just hope that I have their genes and my face continues to look great just like theirs.
I know that they took really good care of their skin. I remember every night my grandmother would wash her face and slather on the greasiest looking cream on her face. My mother on the other hand spends a fortune on the best moisturizers for her face and I know that she has gone to a spa a few times.
I don’t have any Esthetician supplies at home and I can’t afford to spend too much but I’m not cheap either when it comes to my skin. Everybody’s skin is different so you need to really research which products work best for your skin.
First you need to start with the soap or cleanser. You need to find a soap or cleanser that works best for you. For me it’s Palmers Cocoa Butter bar soap. I use the soap to wash my face and then I lather on some more soap and use a Rite Aid brand exfoliating facial sponge to scrub my face and clean my pores.
Then I use a clarifying toner. I used to use L’Oreal Ideal Balance Pore Clarifying toner but they discontinued it. Too bad, it was the best. After many attempts, I have found one that works just as good. The toner I use now is the Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 for Combination Oily skin. It works great.
Next you need to choose some moisturizers that work for your skin. The next few items that I use are all from the L’Oreal Youth Code line. I start with the Regenerating Skincare Eye Cream. I then follow up with a full face moisturizer. I like to use the Day/Night cream on my face.
Now if this is a day that I don’t want to wear makeup but still want to even out my skin tone, I would change things up a bit. After I washed my face, I would use the Regenerating Skincare Serum Intense first and then the Eye Cream. Then I would use the BB Cream Illuminator which is a tinted moisturizer that does an amazing job at evening out the skin.
For the makeup, after many years of research, I have found that the bareMinerals by Bare Escentuals line works best for my skin. It is light weight, it doesn’t clog my pores, it looks natural, and it lasts all day. I can honestly say that it I love their makeup so much that I also use their mascara, eye shadow, and lip gloss.
Hopefully by following this regimen, I can achieve the youthful skin that has been granted to the women in my family.
