What's Your Skincare Regimen?

My mom started me off on a skin care routine at a very young age. I always washed my face before bed and made trips to the dermatologist for breakouts and skincare advice. Thanks for starting me on a good path Mom! Now, in my early thirties, my skin care routine is MUCH more time and labor intensive than it was when I was in junior high. But the time you invest in taking care of your skin is worth every second. You only get one skin, so you have to take care of it!

My basic skincare routine contains two important steps...cleansing and moisturizing! I have extremely sensitive skin, so I use a gentle cleanser with a washcloth, morning and night. Once or twice a week I exfoliate with my Clarisonic. After my AM cleansing I use moisturizer with SPF in it. At night I use a thicker lotion. My house is so dry - I feel like I need double the moisturizer when I sleep so it can work harder for my skin.


If I'm not planning on wearing makeup, I usually just moisturize and then I'm done. But on days I'm going to work and wearing makeup, I've been trying out adding a skin primer to my skin care routine. I've tried primers in the past, but they usually made me breakout. I was recently sent Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex to try out and have had major success! No breakouts!

I've been using Olay Regenerist skin-perfecting primer for about two and a half weeks now and haven't seen a single pimple or skin irritation. In fact, after using it for a week, the nurse at my doctor's office said my skin looked very healthy and that I was glowing!

I love how this skin primer feels on my skin. Super soft, like satin. I sometimes put it over my morning lotion, but sometimes I wear it by itself. My makeup goes on so nicely over top of it. It really does give me a smooth canvas to work with! It's also suppose to instantly reduce the look of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. 

I was also sent a sample of Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Eye Cream & Lash Serum Duo. This combo is suppose to hydrate your eye area and your eyelashes, helping your eyes to look brighter and eye area to look firmer. I've been using this eye cream two times day, once before applying makeup and the second time after washing my face at night. I'm a firm believer that your eye area can never get enough moisture! 

The concept of hydrating my lashes is new to me. I've been using the Lash Serum before I apply my morning mascara and at night. I've only been using it for about 2 weeks so I think it still may be too early to tell results just yet, but will keep everyone posted! This duo can be separated to only carry one or the other, which is a nice option for traveling.

I'd love to hear about your skin care routine and any secrets to prepping your face for makeup. Do you have a favorite primer you use? How long have you been doing the same routine? Please share in the comments below!
