I’ve always been really really picky with what kind of products I use on my skin. When I was in high school I started washing my face religiously, and I can only count on one hand the number of times I have gone to bed without washing my face. Since turning thirty I have noticed a few subtle changes in my skin, and I felt the need to step up my skincare game. I know I’m still young, but I’ve decided to start incorporating a few new things into my night-time skincare routine, and I have listed them all below…
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed that my skin has broken out a little on my cheeks, and it was looking really dull. I was excited to test out some skincare products from Colleen Rothschild that targeted these problem areas. I was so impressed with this skincare line, and I had to share a few of my favorites, along with three changes I am making to my skincare routine:
Add Retinol morning and night: Retinol targets the primary causes of visible aging. It minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, brightens skin, and clears pores. I have been wanting to add retinol to my skincare routine, but thought that I had to have a prescription from a dermatologist to get the good stuff. Colleen Rothschild’s Retinol Treatment Complex was the product I was most excited about because it is as strong as the doctor-recommended retinol, but you don’t need a prescription! I massage a thin layer into my skin morning and night right after washing it, and I let it absorb completely before I add my moisturizer. This retinol cleared up the light blemishes I was experiencing on my cheeks overnight. I was so thrilled! I expected this product to cause a lot of drying and possible peeling (which I was willing to put up with to get my skin clear again), but it didn’t dry out my skin! A tiny bit goes a long way (think a pea sized amount for each application) so this bottle will last me a long time.
Don’t forget the neck: I always wash my face, but I would only apply moisturizer to my neck every once in a while. I’ve started to apply the same anti-aging creams and oils I put on my face to my neck, because necks age too! Right now I’m using this Age Renewal Super Serum and my skin drinks it up! My skin feels soft and amazing in the morning!
Invest in quality products: If I do the legwork and put in the time to research and invest in the best product and best skincare brands now, I will be so glad that I did 10+ years from now. I’m all about treating my skin right! This Dual Enzyme Polish is one of my favorites from the Colleen Rothschild line, and it smells and feels so luxurious! It has high quality microspheres that exfoliate my face. Sometimes I apply it and put a warm towel over my face for a few minutes before starting the exfoliating process after long days when I have had heavy makeup on. I can tell it’s a high quality product, and I saw a visible difference after the very first use. This is proof that using the good stuff really does make a difference!
