People. I’m about to be 27 in a short month and if there is anything that I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older is that I need to take care of my skin. Because if I don’t take care of my skin, one day when my son is walking at his graduation, I’m not going to look like that “oh so hot” almost 40-year-old (that I want to look like) and ready to travel the world without children. But instead, I’ll look more like an almost 40-year-old going on 60! And who want’s that? NOBODY! Ok, ok that may have been a little over dramatic. But seriously, as time goes on I’m starting to realize that going to bed with my makeup on just isn’t cutting it. I’m getting older; it happens! And with age comes routine. Beauty routine. I’m proud to say I’ve gotten it down. I’m of course always in the market for new products, like the ones from the Victorian Cosmetic Institute, for example, trying out what’s best for my skin, learning why it’s so important and putting it to the test.
Just recently I came across CeraVe at Walmart. I mean, I’ve seen it before but with many of their products being on roll back I just had to give it a run for its money. Now before I get started on why and how I’m using CeraVe, I want to give you a little information on why CeraVe is worth its own special spot on my new shelf just for skincare. (See end of post for DIY)
Living in Texas, summer can be a killer on my skin. It gets really hot and really dry. To make matters worse, I have dry skin to begin with and need moisture like it’s going out of style. With CeraVe, they have created a full line of skincare products that penetrate the skin’s surface, infuse it with moisture, and lock it in. OK, let’s just take a step back here and realize what I just said. Infuse it with moisture, and locks it in! I was sold right away.
CeraVe also helps replenish the vital ceramides that all healthy skin needs. Along with it being non-irritating and fragrance-free what could possibly go wrong? Perfect for every skin type. Did I mention that the Hydrating Cleanser, Foaming Facial Cleanser, and Moisturizing Cream are all on rollback right now for only $9.97? But only until May 9th so get it while you can. (Don’t forget your $2 off coupon)
Enough about me rambling on and more about what I really thought about the products if you couldn’t tell 😉
It all starts with my shower at night! I like to keep the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser in my shower for a good wash before I get out. This is to remove all dirt, oil, and makeup from my long day. But let’s not forget how the ceramides and hyaluronic acid moisturizes, helps soften and repair my skins barrier. Um, yes, please.
Once out of the shower I use the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream on my entire body. I love how silky smooth and moist my skin feels. My whole body feels like a baby. LOVE IT! I usually do this while in the shower, and I’m still a little damp. I know this sounds weird, but it’s something I’ve always done since a kid when applying moisturizers.
I also take my CeraVe Makeup Removing Cleanser Cloths to get rid of any excess makeup I might have missed in the shower. I like to know I didn’t miss anything, and there is just something about rubbing a cloth over your face to make you feel extra clean.
Since I find it best to wash my face right before bed, I don’t feel the need to jump out of bed in the mornings and head straight for the skin care. Although, it does help when I’m half asleep and trying to wake up. But once I’ve gotten the kids up, ready to go and have a little time to myself the first thing I like to do is to use my Foaming Facial cleanser. The Foaming cleanser isn’t like it sounds. Yes, it does foam, but it doesn’t foam too much. It’s the perfect amount!
Depending on the day (sunny, rainy or otherwise) I will use the AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion or the CeraVe Sunscreen Face Lotion with SPF 50. This right here makes all the difference in how my face feels, makeup goes on and how the rest of my day will end up looking like. Literally! I also love that my Sunscreen Face Lotion is the perfect size that I can throw it into my purse for the
holy moly I live in Texas days. Which turns out to be every day in case you weren’t too sure.
Like I said before, you can find all these wonderful products at your local Walmart!
As for my floating shelves as mentioned before. They are simple and a fantastic project you can do right at home.
A few things you will need: Wood, paint (if you want them painted), Blink shelve supports, a drill and a wall to hang your shelve(s) on.
First, you will want to paint your wood. I painted mine black. Drill two holes into the back of the wood. Place your blind shelve supports on the wall. Make sure they are a perfect match to the holes you drilled. Hang your wood. Now you have an amazing space for your beauty products or anything you wish. Very simple.
How do you keep your beauty products and what is your daily routine? I’d love to hear back from you!
