I mentioned before that I haven't been very good to my skin. I rarely wash my face at night and almost always sleep with my make-up on. I've been really fotunate to have smooth skin that has been fairly free from blemishes. Though the older I get the more I am noticing sun spots and sun damage on my face. I'm in my late 30's now and I know that something has to change. Which is why I was so excited to partner with Neutrogena for a 7 day rapid repair challenge in October. I ended up loving the products so much and was noticing such a difference in my skin, that I decided to continue this routine well after the challenge had ended. They say it takes about 21 days to create a new habit, and I think I turned over a new leaf in my skin care routine by using these Neutrogena wrinkle repair products, which is why I want to share with you, how you can create your own skin care routine from nothing. That's what I did!
How to Start a Skin Care Routine from Nothing!
Step One: Wash Your Face
Step Two: Put on Eye Cream
Step Three: Use Repair Serum
The directions say to use a pearl-sized dot on your face, but I probably use two pearl sized dots because this is one of my favorite products in the history of ever! The Neutrogena repair serum has Accelerated Retinal SA which is clinically proven to help: fade the look of deep wrinkles, brighten skin's tone, smooth fine lines and texture and leaves your skin feeling soft right away. I use this product on my forehead, down my nose and under my eyes and around my mouth. I use it both night and day. I can tell during the day, that this product alone really helps my make-up go on smoother and gives me that nice fresh dewy look like I have the skin of a teenager.
Step Four: Use a MoisturizerNeutrogena has two separate moisturizers that are formulated for night and day. The day formula has broad-spectrum sun screen so that when it's used with retinol based products, they work together like a skin powerhouse to give you the best anti-aging results.
After doing this skin care routine for just a few days I could already tell that my skin felt smoother and was softer, which is why I continued to stick with it. I honestly can't believe the side by side before and after images. Look how much brighter and more even my skin tone is. I can also tell that those sun spots are starting to fade and while I'm not really plagued by wrinkles, I do have some and those wrinkles are more smoothed out.
I'm sold! The one time I went to a dermatologist, he tried to sell me one tube of cream that had retinol in it for $150. I honestly never noticed as much of a difference using that expensive cream as I have using these much more affordable over the counter options. I can even get them delivered to my door thanks to cvs.com! I'm so thankful these products ended up on my door step and could not be happier to see the results.
