Go The F**K To Sleep
My hobbies recently have included:
looking at skincare
helping others repeat the process
Between cleaning up my eating habits and establishing a new skincare routine, I have never felt more confident and excited to be barefaced. While some look forward to that part in the day where they can come home and take off their bra, I have been looking forward to washing off what’s on my face and piling on some hydrating goodness before drifting off into a deep CBD induced sleep.
I am constantly switching up my routines because life is too short to be doing the same damn thing, and this time around I basically swapped out my entire skincare favorites for some of that new new (to me anyways).
So what have I been doing before I go the f**k to sleep?
Over the last 2 years, I have been alternating between my go-to RE9 Advanced Smoothing Facial Cleanser and RE9 Prepwork Cleansing Polish. In celebration of my 24th time around the sun, I decided that I would try something new. Enter the Brightening Cleansing Foam, which has been formulated to gently remove makeup, dirt, and any impurities with pearlescent suds. It has only been a little over a week and a half but I have been waking up with a different kind of glow that has me slightly obsessed with this new addition.
This is something that I have been using for the last 9 months and it is a step that I immediately notice when I skip. I use these pads to further cleanse my face and this is the bad boy of my nighttime skincare routine...but like in a good way. This formula has been clinically proven to improve skin elasticity, firmness, and moisture leaving your face feeling smoother with a more even texture. Since this product is more on the higher-end, I like to cut them in half to help it last longer and get more bang for my bucks!
As a sheer dry oil formula, this is a crucial step when my skin is looking a bit thirsty (particularly when I am very sunkissed). The omega fattyacids 3 and 6 paired with a superantioxidant help support a more even-toned complexion and gives you an illuminating glow! This is a step that I try to do each and every night but truthfully there are times where I get lazy and opt to do the bare minimum, which typically means I skip this for another evening.
Another new addition to the bathroom cabinet, I have been utilizing this corrective eye cream to give my eye area a little more hydration. The caffeine in the formula also helps minimize the appearance of dark circles while the olive squalane adds a moisturizing component that helps nourish the delicate skin around the eye. Overall I have been enjoying how awake my skin looks in my under eye area even though I don’t always get the recommended amount of sleep, it really makes my concealer work a little less.
Since I am trying to minimize both my morning and nighttime routine, I opted to replace my beloved night cream with this rejuvenating cream. Needless to say, I am not disappointed with the results. This all-in-one cream feels luxurious and deeply hydrating, especially when combined with some of the other additions, without making me feel oily. This has been the perfect day and night moisturizer to seal in all the other products, and I really enjoy that I can use this on other dry parts of my body.
Just like everyone else who fell victim to the thin eyebrow trend of the early 20’s, I have been trying to get my brows back to their thicc glory days before I practically waxed them off. I simply brush this mixture of hair stimulating oils on my brows at the end of my routine and I have been noticing a difference in hair growth.
About once a week, I also add in the Arbonne Intelligence Counter Spot Essence into the mix to help minimize and treat any spots (visible and underneath the surface) along with some fine lines that are starting to settle in.
I have been really enjoying learning over the past year about what different products do to your skin and how a solid routine can improve your overall glow. It is something that I have recently become more passionate about and I am excited to see what continued use of this new routine will do for me.
How often are you butterflies switching up your skincare? I invite you to try this out with me!
Until next time, tah.
