Stilettos and Diapers: A Quest To Better My Face

9.26.2016

A Quest To Better My Face


My skin is treating me quite differently in my 30s than it did in my 20s. Anyone else? I've noticed more lines and pore definition than I ever have and I don't like it one bit! I've always been really good about washing my face every night and don't wear face makeup regularly. What I hadn't been good about, is regular sunscreen when we aren't specifically hanging out in the sun, or other real methods of helping my skin deal with aging. I have started on a quest to be better to my face and to try to prevent as much aging as possible! 

Some things that I've been focused on doing, which I find helpful, are exfoliating, drinking tons of water, eating enough essential fatty acids, cutting out sugar and starting a better moisturizing routine.

I started using Garnier Ultra-Lift Sleeping Cream right after I turned 30. I did a review for it (you can check it out here) and loved it so much that I've been using it for about a year and a half. When recently, I decided to start the day using moisturizer with sunscreen, I headed to Garnier again. This time, the Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter™Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15. (Say that 3 times fast!) I've been using it for about 3 weeks now. It contains antioxidant vitamin C that works quickly to even out tone and texture for a brighter, smoother skin. It's lightweight and smells good, too! 


I'm not typically a huge fan of before and afters, since there can be so many factors that can affect them. But, I wanted to see if it was really doing anything, so I snapped a picture with my regular eye makeup/lipgloss routine, in the same robe, same spot, same time of day, just 2 weeks apart. I started using it right after we got home from the beach, so I was pretty tan to start, but my skin looks and feels much smoother to me! I also have a little cheek glow, am I right? 

Using the Garnier SkinActive® daily moisturizer is an active way to visibly healthier skin that we can all do. It's easier than eating the right foods 100% of the time or getting enough sleep! It's available at pharmacies and my favorite shopping spots, Target and Amazon, so you can get it easily and at a reasonable price.

What are your favorite ways to maintain healthy beauty?

  1. Oh, I love reading about skincare! I also am trying to take great care of my skin now that I'm 30! I like to use a few different products and mix it up on different days. One of my favorite things to do is just use pure aloe vera and slather it on my face at night. It feels so refreshing and leaving my skin soft and smooth! I'm going to have to check out Garnier's skincare line!
