I hope you had a great weekend! It all started after I told you I was turning 40 in May. Ever since then, I've been bombarded with questions about how do I stay looking so young? Well, my secret to looking 40 and fabulous, it's very simple, taking care of my skin is a priority and has been since I was in High School.
I love that Clinique has a3-Step System for every skin type (Very Dry to Dry, Dry Combination, Combination Oily and Oily) that it's simple and most important, easy to follow. When Clinique invited me to their beauty counter, a few weeks ago, to talk about their 3-Step System, I smiled, because I knew exactly what the beauty consultant was talking about! After all, I've used all these products in High School and College. How could I forget about that yellow moisturizer; we've been through a lot ... I thought!
My skin consultant told me I had "Dry Combination" Skin. Sometimes my skin gets dry from all the traveling that I do and being in and out of planes, doesn't help either. Ladies, remember that it is very important to know what kind of skin you have before you start using any products. If you are not sure what your skin type is, make sure to stop by a Clinique counter and they can help you out! After my skin consultant told me what skin type I had, she walked me through all the skin products that I needed to use on daily basis: Liquid Facial Soap, Clarifying Lotion and Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. All these products took me back to my younger days and I was excited to try them again!
Ever since my skin consultation, I've been using the Liquid Facial Soap to wash my face and I love that it's very light and gets rid of everything. Queens, make sure whatever you do, you don't forget to wash your face in the morning and at night. Never and I mean NEVER, go to bed with makeup on, that's the worse thing you can do for your skin.
After washing my face I apply the Clarifying Lotion with a cotton swab all over my face. Always be gentle and apply the product up and never down. This step is really important because the Clarifying Lotion will sweep away any impurities and excess oil, that way your moisturizer will do a better job! Then, I go ahead and apply the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion on my face and neck. Ladies, don't forget about to apply moisturizer on your neck either, I do it all the time to prevent my neck from aging as well. Overall these products were easy on my skin and left it looking fresh and nice. Oh, and did I tell you these products are very affordable too? Remember, start talking care of your skin at a young age, you will thank me later!
