Simplify Your Skincare Routine With These Product Must Haves

   By makeovermomma  Jul 12, 2011

 As a beauty editor, blogger and video personality, I test tons of products monthly in the quest for the best of the best. But what are the products I can't live without and keep in my bathroom drawer year round? Read below to get my all access current skincare routine, and watch this new video for my favorite clear, wrinkle-free skin "must haves"...

My Easy Summer Skincare Routine:

* In The Morning: I always wash my face both morning and night no matter what, but even if I don't have time for any other step, I make sure to cleanse my skin with a handy, affordable acne face wipe. It provides just enough exfoliation to keep my pores clear, and has kept my skin break out free for months! After cleansing, I apply a small amount of acne treatment cream (my personal favorite is Proactiv Repairing Lotion) and finish with a moisturizer containing sunscreen. In fact, most of the time I use basic SPF and skip any additional lotion (at the moment, I'm loving Avon ANEW Solar Defense SPF 45).

* At Night: It doesn't matter how late it is or how tired I feel, I always wash my face with a simple cleansing wipe (it really does the trick). If I have some extra energy, I apply a small amount of Bare Escentuals Skin Rever-Upper to my T-zone, and a small amount of Strivectin-SD Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks and Wrinkles. I love it because it keeps signs of aging at bay without irritating my sensitive, redness-prone skin, and it can also second as an eye cream or lip treatment. Fabulous!

* Which product would YOU use the most?

ANEW Solar. I need to remember to wear sunscreen more often. Tough finding a good one that's not sticky, not too heavy or smell bad.

I am not faithful to wash my face at night time due to tired and late evening. I sometimes try to use witch hatch on cotton ball to wipe my face and more on my nose area due to very oily and large pores. I tried several different facial moisture to preserve my youth skin as long as possible.

I am very lazy when it comes to skincare and really have to force myself to put in the extra effort some days! I have been trying out a lot of new organic and all natural products and have been very happy with them so far. WIth sensitive skin I have to be careful what I use!
