skincare routine

This winter had my skin feeling dry and dull. I also turned 37 and started noticing little lines that weren’t there before. So I decided to focus on staying hydrated and moisturizing. My goal is to get that healthy, dewy glow and feel comfortable without makeup. Here’s a little peek into my skincare routine:

  1. Cocokind Oil to Milk Cleanser
    This cleanser goes on dry skin, which was new to me. But I quickly got used to the texture and love the way my skin feels after it’s rinsed clean.
  2. Golde Papaya Bright Exfoliating Face Mask
    I use this mask 2-3 times a week after cleansing in my nighttime routine. It comes in powder form and becomes a gel-like substance when I add a few drops of water. I mix it in a little ceramic bowl, then apply a thin even layer. It’s grainy texture gently exfoliates and leaves my skin feeling BRIGHT.
  3. Botnia Rosewater Toner
    This spray toner is lovely. I don’t usually like floral rose scents but this is subtle enough for me. It’s like a thirst quencher for my skin.
  4. Moon Juice Plump Jelly Serum
    I use a few drops of this serum while my skin is still wet from the toner. I gently massage it in and my skin just drinks it up. These two products are absorbed so quickly and feel great together. 
  5. Kiehl’s Avocado Eye Cream
    I’ve used this eye cream for YEARS and still love it. Just a few light dabs under my eyes and few more around the corners. I use my ring finger on my non-dominant hand.
  6. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 30
    Also have used this moisturizer forever. I love that it’s a two-in one so I don’t have to apply a separate layer of SPF in the morning. 
  7. Cocokind Chia Nourishing Face Oil
    This oil is so nice at the end of the day, I use it as my moisturizer and final step in my daily skincare routine.

I’ve been sticking to these products for the last 6-8ish weeks. I look forward to it every day as it’s my few minutes of alone time. I make sure my kids are busy doing something else so I can enjoy this little ritual without someone hanging on me. My skin has already shown improvement but I’m looking forward to seeing even better results this summer.
