All words here are my own because no one actually contacted me to do this, I am simply bragging about my clean skin.
So I have recently had a birthday and of course with birthdays, the age number goes up. I am not paranoid about ageing (well only a little bit), but I have changed one thing in my routine that I have never really done before – thoroughly clean my skin. Before you comment “Oh Natalie, that’s disgusting”, I mean if I wear makeup I wash it off but if I am having a makeup free day, my skin suffers.
But I asked myself – How clean is your skin?
Here is where I brag – I have always had good skin. Even as a teenager, pimples were few and far between. I have a natural tanned complexion, very few markings on my face and wrinkles are there but nothing too dramatic.
Until recently when I started to really notice my dark circles under my eyes and my skin seemed to have lost its “Sex and The City” sparkle to it.
So I headed over to OLAY and took the personalised skin care test to see exactly what it is the experts recommended. The results were:
Regenerist Advanced Cleaning System – It provides 4X better cleansing (vs. basic cleansing) helps maximize the immediate hydrating effectiveness of your anti-aging moisturizer.
I love it. The gentle brush rotates giving me a deep clean and light exfoliation every time I use it. I use it in the shower so there is no mess and no cold water being splashed on my face, which is one reason I avoid washing my face (poor excuse I know but I hate the cold). It takes me a couple of minutes and I know I am getting deep into my pores (which seem to be getting bigger) and I am starting my day giving my face a lift. You can purchased this at the moment at BIG W for $25 (normally $50)
Regenerist CC Moisturiser Medium – This product I absolutely love as it evens my complexion, reduces the little wrinkles I have but mainly evens out the dark spots under my eyes. Even if I am having a makeup free day, wearing this means I don’t looked washed out or like I am a middle-aged woman having a make up free day. You can also purchase this from BIG W for $20 (normally $35)
Regenerist Resurfacing Elixir – OK the word RESURFACING scared me a little as my skin is not that bad and I don’t think I am ready for an entire new face. However, it actually hydrates my skin after the day of being covered in makeup and continues to work while I sleep (good to see something works that late at night). Apparently it tightens skin over night but I am yet to see that tightening. I have tried it on my arms too and NOTHING – still have tuckshop arms. Another bargain from BIG W for only $20 (normally $50)
Finally I have a skin routine –
My only concern is when I read ANTI-AGING as I maybe in my 40’s (early, early 40’s) but I don’t feel old. It was time I started to look after my skin and feel very happy with the results. My 8 year old said I am looking younger everyday… God bless him…
