Bring on the Back to School crazies!! It's always a little chaotic around here as we settle into our school year routine, so carving out time for myself seems even MORE challenging than before! But I do try to take time to prioritize me- even if it's just a little skincare loving in the morning!
After I wake up, take a shower, and wash my face, I jump right into my morning routine! I need some heavy lifters to help me feel put together in the morning! Here's a quick peek at what I am loving these days! I'll do a deeper dive on these products soon!
Step One: PCS Nutrient Toner. I love this stuff! It smells like pumpkin- so perfect for the season!! It helps open up a lot of the congestion I get on my forehead and around my chin.
Step Two: SkinMedica TNS Recovery Complex. This stuff is serious! No fluffy floral scents in this bottle. It has a sticky texture and an "organic" smell- is that the growth factors?? I don't even care. While the application isn't super luxurious, one pump of this stuff infuses my skin with the highest level of growth factors- helping to improve texture and resiliency while diminishing the appearance of wrinkles.
Step Three: SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex. My major problem area is around my eyes- I think I smile too much! I rely on this stuff to keep my eyes moisturized and supple to prevent new wrinkles and to help diminish dark circles and puffiness!
Step Four: Obagi Medical Hydrate Facial Moisturizer. I love the creamy richness of this deeply hydrating moisturizer. It's a perfect sealant for all of my other products and helps keep moisture in my skin. I have a feeling I'll appreciate it that much more once the cold weather hits!!
Step Five: SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50. This sunscreen is like no other. It's super liquidy (just a warning in the event you take it home and wonder if it's supposed to be so runny). It goes on super smoothly and I can almost feel the barrier protection it provides from the sun.
