When I was in my early 20’s I was the girl everyone used to ask, “what type of cover up do you use?” My answer was, “I’m not wearing any.” I miss those days
Ever since I moved from New York to the south my skin has hated me. On a very regular basis I would be breaking out and have dry patches on my nose. I was never able to leave the house without heavy coverage and when I got home, I could feel the breakouts coming. It’s been awful to deal with and I have tried so many different kinds of face washes, masks and toners. It would work for a little while and then go right back to dryness and breakouts.
So, as 2019 set in, I decided to really focus on my skincare routine by doing 2 things every single night and guess what?!? My skin has improved by leaps and bounds! The secret…. well, I guess there really isn’t one, I’ve just been neglecting the obvious. Here it is:
WASHING MY FACE
Every night! No matter how tired you are or how busy you get, don’t ever go to bed without washing your face. Get all the dirt, oil and makeup off so that your skin has a full night to breathe.
I had no idea how much this would change my skin and I follow the same rule. Never go to bed without moisturizing. I like moisturizer that is light and once it’s soaked in, doesn’t feel like it leaves a heavy residue. The dryness on my nose has pretty much disappeared and I have seen an improvement in the evenness of my skin tone.
If you are like me and you’ve been neglecting your pour skin, go ahead and give this a try and be patient. It took at least a month of consistency before I started noticing any changes, but the results were definitely worth it.
