I always tell people that your skin care routine should not take you very long to do but that doesn’t mean you should rush through it. Take your time. I know so many of you have kids so this isn’t always easy. When you can, you should. Cleanse your face properly and make sure you are getting all the dirt, oil and makeup off. The longer you do this, the cleaner your skin will be (30-45 seconds). After cleansing, use a toner to make sure that all the residue is gone. Then you should go right to your serum(s), moisturizer and spf. Don’t wait for each product to dry in between steps. You want your skin damp so that the water is locked in and can hydrate your skin. Plus, this will save you money because you will use less product!
Pamper yourself. You can’t always get to your Esthetician (me, right?!) so take the time to pamper yourself. I promise you that it will feel good and it will relax you. Let your thoughts go and just focus on you.
And, remember that skin care should always go before makeup. This is includes spf.
