Happy Sunday! Sundays are the day of the week I do my weekly skin maintenance and pampering. Good skin is all about getting in the habit of a skincare regimen. I think most of us know this by now. 🙂 But that involved daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly care.
If you think about it, a good skin day starts the night before. You should always be using a Retinol every night. (If you have drier skin, or are just trying retinol for the firt time try layering a moisturizer over or altering every other day.) I used to be hesitant about using a Retinol because my skin is so sensitive, but I love Vichy’s LiftActiv Retinol – it’s a powerful antioxidant (Vitamin A) and helps accelerate cell turnover on the skin’s surface and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It also has Vichy’s Mineralizing Thermal Water which is at the core of all the Vichy products and one of my favorite ingredients – it has 15 different minerals that strengthen and protect your skin against daily aggressors like pollution, stress, and fatigue. If you haven’t tried a Retinol yet, this is a great one to start with.
Two products you should be consistently using in the morning are a sunscreen (I know I’m sounding like a broken record, but seriously – never skip it!) and one of my new recent favorites I’ve shared recently, a Vitamin C serum. (Love Vichy’s LiftActiv Vitamin C Serum – you can read more about why in this post.) These products are all great for sensitive skin too (they’re paraben-free). The combo of a Retinol, SPF, and Vitamin C serum is the most recommended anti-aging regimen by U.S. dermatologists so you want to make sure you are religious about using these three!
I always get a ton of questions about my skincare routine, and I love sharing my favorite products but I think the biggest thing in getting great skin is being consistent! I think we are all really good about doing our full skincare routine when our skin is acting up, but it’s so easy to start skipping steps when your skin is back on track. Being consistent with your skincare routine is the best way to get consistently good skin, so I wanted to put together my skincare schedule with things you should be doing on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis. Is there anything you guys do differently?
