Daily Skincare Routine
Recently, the slower pace in life has me putting more thought into my daily skincare routine. I have focused more on taking care of myself and doing more research on skincare products I currently use and others that might be of benefit to my skin. I thought it would be fun to share the skincare products I use on a daily basis. Since I have sensitive skin, a lot of the products I use are good for those with sensitive skin.
Neutrogena Deep Clean Cream Cleanser– This facial cleanser is great for those who suffer from an occasional breakout and want a cleanser that will deeply penetrate the pores. I use this cleanser every morning and love that it leaves a tingling sensation that wakes me up. The cleanser goes on very smooth, lathers great, and a little goes a long way.
Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Foam Scrub– I use this scrub every other night in order to exfoliate my face. It definitely is invigorating as this product has a very gritty feel to it due to the exfoliating beads and it also leaves a tingling sensation. It is very effective at cleansing the skin and leaving it feeling smooth.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion– Cetaphil lotion is great for those with sensitive skin and I use it daily on my face to moisturize it. Not only is it gentle on sensitive skin, but it does a great job of moisturizing it. I find that the texture of the lotion has gotten recently gotten thicker so a little goes a long way. I use this every morning and night.
Hands and Feet
Earth Therapeutics Hand Remedy-I use to suffer from very dry hands due to constantly washing them and washing dishes. It was especially bad during the winter months. Earth Therapeutics came to my rescue and softened my dry hands, which needed moisturizing bad between the fingers. I keep a container of this at home and at work and use it after washing my hands. It is effective at smoothing dry hands and can also be used on elbows and knees.
Earth Therapeutics Tea Tree Oil Foot Balm-My heels were very dry between pedicures and I needed a foot product that would soften my heels. The Earth Therapeutic Tea Tree Foot Balm has been great at keeping my heels soft. In light of nail salons being closed, lately after my nightly bath or shower I have been using a pumice stone to often my heels and following it up with the foot balm. When I wake up I have soft and smooth heels.
Bath and Body
Bath and Body Works Almond Blossom Shower Gel and Lotion– Not only do these products smell good, but they effectively clean and nourish the skin. The shower gel doubles up as both a cleanser and a bubble bath. I follow it up after a bath or shower with the lotion. The soft and warm scent of almond is great to soothe the mind right before bed.
