No. Not the glow that pregnancy brings (um, no thank you. Happy with my lot), but I do want my skin to glow, and I need your help.
I noticed on Fat Mum Slim yesterday that Chantelle was asking everyone their advice on mascara, and I thought, 'How handy are these little ole blogs?'
For the last couple of years or so now, I've gotten lazy with my skin care routine. Partly because I'm just so busy and I don't have a lot of time to invest in myself, but partly because I'm, well, lazy! So over the years, I've gone from cleansing, toning and moisturising twice daily, to doing that at night and just using warm water on my face in the morning; to now just washing my face with Dove soap at night, moisturising, then doing the warm water on a flannel thing in the morning.
And I've chopped and changed my moisturisers too. In the old days, I used Nutrimetics (and to be honest, when I very first started using that, around the age of about 19, my skin finally started to really clear up after years of pimples and oily skin). In recent years, I've used Oil of Olay as my moisturiser, and right now, I'm trying out a Clinique moisturiser I received as a freebie (but it's not really doing much for me). Whilst I'm not overly fussed about using a toner (I've heard more than once they're quite unnecessary) I've also lost my way with cleansers - hence the Dove soap routine.
Here's where I need your help...
What's your skin routine? What works for you? What would you recommend? I can tell you I have the classic old mix of oily and dry skin - with my 'T' section being oily (especially my forehead).
HELP!!!! All the products out there just confuse me. (Which admittedly, isn't hard to do. *cough*) And, of course, as mentioned before - I'm lazy. So I'm lettin' my fingers do the walking. ;)
Besides...I need to make sure I'm looking fabulous for my 40th birthday later this year!
All suggestions would be appreciated.
See? Blogs are HANDY!
