We’ve been talking a lot about skincare on my Instagram lately, and I realized I never really addressed my routine or products or anything along those lines with you all. When I was in high school I created sort of a skin care routine for myself, though simple its something I’ve stuck to through the years and it works pretty well for me. It involves washing my face every single night, moisturizing and putting on eye cream. That’s it. Simple!!!
But on the topic of moisturizing I do this twice a day. At night before bed, and in the morning before I apply my makeup. While at night it doesn’t really matter too much how my moisturizer feels, in the morning as a makeup base I need something that goes on smooth, light that doesn’t feel greasy but still nourishes my skin.
Lately I’m in love with the new L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius moisturizer. Its liquid based, made with Aloe water and Hyaluronic acid which makes it so great for my skin especially since I’m still dealing with some of changes from my pregnancy…hello dark spots and tiny wrinkles! For those who don’t know hyaluronic acid is a natural acid presently found inside our bodies, specifically in the joints and eyes. It has many uses and benefits but it specifically acts to repair skin from damage and wrinkles and L’Oréal has found a way to add it into a daily moisturizer that its affordable and available at my regular drug store, so I don’t have to make special trips to get it. My makeup on top stays put and my face still feels super fresh at bed time when I wash everything off, though there are definitely days when all I do is rock out the fresh (or tired as you might notice) face around the house…but either way my moisturizer is always on. To me its just as important to be hydrated from the outside in, as it is from the inside out.
