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.
