I love watching you Smarty Moms touring around Charlotte in such a sophisticated, fun & stylish manor… all while taking care of business with the kids & the family! My best skin care tip: NEVER go to bed without washing your face first and LOTS & LOTS of water every single day!!!
oh my word….my 40th is approaching and my wrinkly skin is in need! haha
skin care tip: sunscreen!
I have a skin care tip that is from a friend who swears this is a hidden secret. I have super duper dry skin and I was told to put Pond’s cream on at night. I know, crazy huh?! I’m on day 3 so I’ll report back. I’m also going to try some of Dr. Rostan’s products. I have been using Neutrogena products and they are not working. So I’m a little skeptical of the Ponds, but can’t hurt to try!
Sunscreen every day!
I put lotion with at least 30 SPF on my face everyday!
Wash your face as soon as you get home for the evening. You’re less likely to skip it then at bedtime when you are exhausted. Try the CeraVe stuff over Neutrogena, I made the switch and think it works much better.
Skincare tip: drink lots of water and wear sunscreen! 🙂
ALWAYS be gentle with the skin around your eyes and moisturize it!
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!!
Sunscreen and water!
Always wash your face before bed and moisturize you skin.
I’m a big fan of Cetaphil cream (the tub, not the pump).
Sunscreen. It’s not just for your face. I grew up at the coast and spend most of my summertime there with my children now. I load up on sunscreen, don my coverup and sport my big floppy hat. There is nothing attractive about sunspots or sun damage. I enjoy my time out in the boat or sitting by the sea all the while fighting the signs of aging and beating off skin cancer!
Use A baby wipe to remove makeup at night. Drink WATER
I wear a lot of sunscreen and wash my face twice daily…and Meredith gives me wonderful peels every 8 weeks!!! Amazing!!! 🙂
Wear sunscreen every day!
Cerave, Cerave, Cerave!!
I LOVE Avene Retrinal lotion – use it ever night and no wrinkles yet:)
Sunscreen and lots of water to drink!!!
Water! Clinique moisturizer 😀 and coconut oil, lately I haven’t used my clinique and have been only using coconut oil and a bit of the Target SheaMoisture from the baby section and my skin is so much softer than it was even with Clinique! I use dove or just castile on my face and then moisturize!
Sunscreen + moisturizer!
Skin Tip: Clarasonic is the best!!! It is amazing how your skin will look and feel after using it!!!!
Water and moisturizer!!
Clarisonic and dermaplank!!
Sunscreen every day and my grandmother swears by ponds cold cream. She’s 95 but you would never know it maybe she is on to something!
Visit a dermatologist annually for a full body skin check! I’m only 36 and hardly a sun worshipper, but I’m fair (there’s a good possibility I was genetically intended to live in an igloo). I just had a precancerous lesion removed from my cheek. While I’m sporting a lovely blister on my face right now from the liquid nitrogen, I am incredibly relieved those bad cells are gone! Whatever you do to cleanse and moisturize, don’t forget to have those moles and freckles checked regularly.
sunscreen, water, toner, and moisturizer!
Tip #1 is from “the” best dermatologist in Charlotte: ditch (bacteria ridden) washcloths and switch to washing your face with either clean hands or a facial brush. Just be sure to replace the facial brush about once a month. Tip #2 is beauty sleep 🙂
I have really enjoyed my Clarisonic brush & use it every night. I also use sunscreen every day in my moisturizer.
Sunscreen everyday – love my Skinceuticals!
Night cream is critical for healthyskin.Arbonne has an all natural line for women, men and children. I also like their instant eye lift gel.
Wear lots of sunscreen!!
Sunscreen- Oil of Olay for every day, Ocean Potion Face Potion SPF 45 for activities, beach. Also carry Oil of Olay cleansing cloths in tennis bag/ pool bag
*Love Garnier anti-puff eye roller for tired eyes in the
morning- instant boost!
My favorite skin tip is raw honey facials. It’s easy, just wash your face well, apply warm raw honey and leave it on at least half an hour. Rinse well and enjoy super soft skin.
Water and veggies…lot”s of them.
I have enjoyed my Olay ProX face cleanser, feel that my face is much cleaner than just using my hands, used with an exfoliator cleanser even better!
Wearing sunscreen – all the time!
My favorite tip is good ‘ole vaseline. I put in on my lips and lightly around my outer eyes every night. Locks the moisture in!
Use chemical free sunscreen. You can order products for less at vitacost.com
daily sunscreen and makeup remover
Sunscreen! And never go to bed without cleansing your face…should be a given, but I am shocked at how many of my friends confess to not doing this!
My 30th is next month, so I am in search of a new preventative skin care routine. For the first half of my 20’s I washed my face with water in the shower and then moisturized. The second half I have experimented with different facial cleansers, washing my face every night in the shower and moisturizing in the summer with Oil of Olay SPF and Eilysse in the winter. Going into my 30’s I want to develop a better, anti-aging routine to keep my skin glowing and wrinkle-free.
My first tip is if you come in from a late night and just want to crash, at the very least, invest in a pack of pre-moistened towelettes so you can remove most of the make-up and environmental “ickiness” from your face before going to sleep. And, be sure to change your pillow case often (weekly, at least) to keep skin cells and oils (read: bacteria) from accumulating – you don’t’ want your face lying on that all night!
Never leave makeup on when you sleep -Wash face!! Moisturizer with sunscreen is key!!
My favorite skin care tip is the clarasonic! Well worth the investment!
Sunscreen and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!!!
Sunscreen, sunglasses & wear a hat at the pool & beach! The hat also helps preserve your highlights!
Love my Clarisonic and my simple, inexpensive fragrance-free Olay foaming face wash!
a good cleanser, a good moisturizer with sunscreen and lots of water
Cetaphil with added Aveda tea tree oil to wash at night and then i just rinse in the morning with water! Keeps my skin clear and less likely to dry out.
Having developed Melasma..,.sunscreen is a must!!
Moisturize & sunscreen!
I use spf 15 sunscreen daily-it has kept my skin smooth and radiant.
