Skin Care

So I thought of something that I really need to start doing this year-I guess a sort of "resolution"-to take better care of my skin! I have always been bad about having a good skin care routine. Right now all I do is use wipes to take off my makeup at night, and then just rinse my face in the morning and put on moisturizer after that.

I just HATE going through the whole routine of using a face wash at night, and scrubs, masks, and moisturizers and all that. It takes too long, it's messy, and I'm just too tired at night to fool with it. I've tried, and I just never stick with it! Can you say lazy??

However, my skin lately has been horrible(breakouts!), and I need to do something about it. Well, my skin has never really been that great. I was definitely NOT blessed with smooth, glowing skin, unfortunately.  I'm SO jealous of people with good skin!  I had acne prone skin all through my teenage years. It got a little better as I got older, but it still pops up every now and then. I notice breakouts more in the winter, I guess because my tan covers it up in the summer.

I'm going to really try hard to make it a habit to wash my face every night with a cleanser, then moisturize, and use a scrub and mask once or twice a week.

So does anyone have any tips for me for getting clear, healthy skin?  Any favorite (preferrably inexpensive) products that you've had success with?

  1. I recently noticed my skin being way more dry than usual. I too have tried being better about taking care of my skin. I wrote a blog with some of my favorite beauty/skin products. The face wash is very popular to people who have tried it. Sure to get off a full face of makeup with just a little bit! I started moisturizing at night and morning and it helped with dryness. I also started putting hand cream on at night with gloves. It's really annoying and I don't do it every night but that is the goal!

  2. I dont know if this would be inexpensive enough for you, But im 30 and i have been using Mary Kay Skin care since i was 15 & i think my skin looks pretty good for my age. I sell it. I do not use alot of makeup, cause i think you need to take care of your skin first. I like plan simple natural beauty. I can alway give you a facial anytime you would like.
