Last week I turned 41. Yup, I’m officially over 40. I’m not shy about my age. I actually feel better than I did in my 20s.
When I was in my 20s, I cared more about makeup than skincare. Skincare was more of an afterthought than a necessity. At 20-something, it’s easy to take your skin for granted. I looked at my mother and all the beautiful women in my family – they all looked younger than their years. I come from good genes. While my mother didn’t care much for makeup, she took care of her skin religiously.
Now that I’m older, I realize that it doesn’t matter what kind of makeup I put on my face, it’s underneath that matters. And I take my daily skincare routine seriously.
I have a morning and evening routine using Neutrogena products that work for my skin type and addresses my skincare concerns. With or without makeup, my skin feels healthy and beautiful.
Morning Anti-Aging Skincare Routine
One of my issues is that I have oily/combination skin. Before I apply a moisturizer I wash my face with a Neutrogena’s Pore refining cleanser and then apply the pore refining toner. I love the Neutrogena Pore Refining line. It’s been part of my routine for a few years.
After cleansing and toning, it’s time to moisturize. I use Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30. I use this year round because even on cloudy days, we need protection from the sun. I apply it all over my face, under my chin and down my neck (sometimes down to my collarbone area).
Neutrogena® Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 renews the look of skin throughout the day and visibly fades the look on those unwanted crow’s feet, stubborn deep wrinkles, and forehead and cheek, expression lines. This super charged formula is combined with UVA/UVB SPF 30 for daily sun protection.
Evening Anti-Aging Skincare Routine
- Get #unready using Double Cleansing Method
- Moisturize & apply eye cream
One of the first things I do when I get home from work is take off my makeup. Makeup removal is one of the things I stress to the young ladies in my life. Falling asleep with your makeup is one of the worst things you can do for your skin.
First I use the Neutrogena’s makeup remover cleansing towelettes. It’s just so easy to use and gentle on my skin. Then I go in with the Deep Clean Gentle Scrub.
Once my face is clean, I moisturize with Neutrogena® Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Extra-Dry Skin. I LOVE THIS STUFF! It’s oil free and absorbs quickly into my skin. It feels so good on my skin – it’s like my face just drank a big glass of water. It just feels cool and refreshing.
Remember when I said I have oily/combination skin? I’m oily in my t-zone area but under my eyes gets dry. After I moisturize, I use the Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Eye nightly. Sometimes I even use it before I apply makeup. It just makes my under eyes feel refreshed, hydrated and well-rested.
No matter what your skin type or concern, Neutrogena has products that will meet your needs. For more information, visit Neutrogena.
