Besides drinking an absurd about of water (12 glasses a day, likely more), I guess you could say I have a skincare regime. Now that I’m 32, I take skincare somewhat seriously. Here are my favorite products that I slather on and re-order once empty.
MOISTURE, MOISTURE, MOISTURE
This is my desert-island skin product. Even though it’s technically an intense, overnight serum, I wear it both day and night. That’s pretty much the only serum/lotion thing I put on my face. If you’re local to Charleston, I suggest buying yours from Wildcraft, a gorgeous natural skincare store in West Ashley.
Neutrogena’s Deep Clean Cleanser is oldie but a goodie. I wash my face each night with this. In the morning, I rinse my face with cold water (no soap). I use Vaseline on a cotton ball to remove stubborn eye makeup.
Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen is the only sunscreen I don’t hate to put on because it’s a clear serum. I will admit, I am terrible about wearing sunscreen because I hate the chalky white mineral stuff! I think it’s a tad pricey, but it’s worth it, and I’ll be using it all summer long.
Saint Tropez Classic Bronzing Mousse is my secret weapon for feeling prettier and more glamorous… instantly. I got my first fake tans leading up to my wedding and honeymoon, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Just a thin application of Saint Tropez 1-2x week turns my pale, pink skin into a warmer, sexier complexion. It’s easy to apply and fast-drying. Not to mention, it’s slimming and makes me look better in skin-bearing clothing. Don’t forget to buy the application mitt – it’s a game changer!
I am not ashamed to admit that I get ‘Preventative Botox’ every 3-6 months. Nothing crazy… just enough “splashes” to prevent the creation of major wrinkles. I have a deep wrinkle (or groove) in between my eyes that would be MUCH more pronounced if I didn’t have this injection. A little goes a long way in preventing major crevices on my face. Just don’t overdo it. I believe some wrinkles are sexy and I still want to be able to express my emotions!
