I’ve had many ups and downs with skincare products; attempting various combinations of cleaners and moisturizers that would make your head spin. I tried numerous cleaners – foaming vs. creamy and everything in-between. Oil-Free moisturizers weren’t strong enough to combat the dryness, but regular moisturizers made my skin shiny. I had occasional breakouts but could never pinpoint the reason.
I could never find that middle ground. That calm, perfectly moisturized, normal-feeling skin.
And then I stopped washing my face in the morning.
I just rinse with cold water then apply a skin-protecting serum, oil-free moisturizer, and eye cream.
At night I cleanse with a gentle cleanser and apply a slightly heavier moisturizer and eye cream. Once a week, I exfoliate before washing my face at night to keep dullness at bay.
Lately when I wake up in the morning, my skin feels great. Never tight, never oily, just normal. I don’t get shiny or oily throughout the day anymore, and my skin doesn’t get dry or flaky either. It is radiant and healthy looking.
