The skin on your face is just as important as the skin on the rest of your body, it actually may be more important because the skin on your face ages faster than other places. The first places to age on your body are your face, neck and chest. So, how do you keep your skin in the best state? By pampering it, of course!
Many years back, I never used to wash my face (I know, crazy), or even moisturize, but when I was in high school, I hated the feeling of a dry face, it was like nails on a chalk board for me. So, I started moisturizing every morning. Then, as time went on and I became more knowledgable about beauty and skincare, I realized that washing, exfoliating, treating and moisturizing your skin are the best ways to maintain healthy, glowing and ageless looking skin. I tried many different types of skincare routines and I finally found one that I love for an every day, check my Murad skincare review, but for a night of pure pamper, I reach for these four products.
On a daily basis, I use the Murad Clarifying Cleanser ($22.00 CA), however, when I want to treat my skin, I then follow with the Murad Skin Smoothing Polish ($36.00 CA) to provide my face with a gentle exfoliate. After that, I dry my face, and use the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask ($20.00 CA for the 1.7 oz and $32.00 CA for the 3.4 oz, I use the 1.7 oz), where I put a thick layer all over my face, let it dry for about 15-20 minutes. I then wipe it off with a warm cloth. Following the Origins mask, I use my ride or die night time moisturizer, the Clairns Mutli-Active Nuit ($55.00 CA) cream, that targets fine lines and helps revitalize the skin.
This may seem like a lot of steps to you for every night, but don’t kid yourself, I only use all of those steps once a week or once every other week (when I remember or have time). But, I do use my Murad cleanser and Clarins cream every night, ensuring I go to bed with a clean and moisturized face for the next day.
