When the weather is like this I am reminded that the simple pleasures of life bring me peace. This peace I try to incorporate in many areas of my life. And the older I get, I find that the ease comes as a result of simplifying my life. Simply how I shop, where I shop, what my morning routine consists of , even personal style. I am a pretty basic, no-fuss kind of gal. Take my skincare regimen...I basically use only 3, sometimes 4 products for cleansing, tone, anti-oxidants and moisturizing. My skin has not been this healthy until this past year when I made a decision to simplify and make skincare easy.
Today, in magazines, in commercials and in stores the big theme is Anti-Aging! Scrub this, moisturize that, plump here, fill those and the directives go on and on. I do have a background of working in the beauty business when I was in my 30's and makeup and color where the rage. Fancy eyeliners, shadows, primers, lashes, lipsticks, powder...you name it I owned it! and not just 1 cosmetic line, I owned all the latest products from at least 4 big cosmetic companies. Today, I am smarter and wiser (or at least I would hope to be) about what the basics are to anti-ageing and effective skincare.
Cleansing my face with face wipes from Simple! They are the cleanest, most effective wipe I believe and the kindest to my skin. No heavy perfumes or chemicals. Next I want to nourish and feed my skin and the easiest most pure and effective serum that I have found is by Touchstone Essentials. Their Super Serum is all plant based and just a small pump covers my entire face and neck. This product has faded my freckles (sun spots, really) diminished fines lines around my eyes and mouth, deeply penetrates my skin to firm and moisturize. I finish my routine with a moisturizer with coconut water as its base. The last product I use is the Anti-Oxidant drink everyday. Really this drink is my sport drink of choice and I found that it enhances the skincare routine by providing much needed nutrients from the inside to support the products from the outside. So smart, and so simple!
It doesn't take much to look your best, no matter what your age.
