I have always been ambivalent about skincare. With that being said, awhile back I read an interesting article about Rashida Jones’s beauty routine. And Sunday, I had a great conversation with the little sis about skincare and she told me about Caroline Hirons.
Since I will be trying to improve my habits, I thought I would share my current skincare routine or lack thereof:
First, my skin and I are like courteous roommates. I don’t use too many products on my face, and I don’t usually breakout beyond the monthly visit. We don’t have a glowing relationship, but I’m not talking bad about her behind her back to my friends.
Hot yoga forces me to actively hydrate throughout the week, although I’ve slacked a bit in that regard. I also try to get at least 7 or 8 hours of sleep and am more or less successful.
With the Caroline Hirons plug, I wash my face in the morning with Cetaphil Cleanser (before I would just wash my face in the shower with Cetaphil and the Mia). Then I use Josie Maran’s Argan Daily Moisturizer which has an SPF 47. When washing my face, I use the Clarisonic Mia at least once a day. A couple times a week, I’ll use NARS Multi Action Hydrating Toner after I moisturize. At night, I wash my face with the Cetaphil Cleanser and apply Cetaphil’s Daily Advance lotion. I use Vaseline (I know, I know) under my eyes and on my lips. I use Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 Tube if I need it throughout the day and Neutrogena’s On-the-Spot Acne Treatment for breakouts.
I don’t wear makeup often, but I admit that I would like my skin to be a little brighter, a little more glowy especially as I’m aging. I know I still need to find that right balance of maintenance and care. I will be experimenting more in the next few months.
