Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes (2 for $6) are great for removing make up without putting harsh cleansers on your face. I use these almost every night.
Simple Micellar Water ($5) is great for cleansing faces without a lot of make up on (you could clean your whole face with this it would just require a lot of cotton balls). I use this every morning.
Step 2: Treat acne or wrinkles. I'll give you two options depending on what you'd prefer, a cotton ball or a pad.
Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme ($10) have both salicylic acid which exfoliates and kills bacteria and glycolic acid which fights wrinkles. They're perfect for fighting aging and acne. Even my husband has started using this and noticed a distinctive difference in his skin quality. I use this every night.
Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting BHA Liquid ($29) also has salicylic acid and exfoliating properties. I know it's a little more expensive, but it lasts a long time and you'll see the difference with just one use. This really is a miracle product. I use this every morning.
Step 3: Moisturize!!!!!!!!!!! All women need to moisturize, even if you have oily skin. Moisturizer protects your skin from the grossness on your pillow and the dry heat of your furnace and keeps your skin tight and youthful. Here are a few of my favorites. Always wetten your face or use rosewater so you have moisture to seal in before you apply. You can skip step 2 if you must but never skip step 3.
Benefit Cosmetics Total Moisture Facial Cream ($42) is my new favorite. This cream may be on the expensive side, although it's a pretty big jar that will last a year, but it feels like a $200 cream. My skin has never felt so soft! I'm in love.
Olay Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream ($13) is a great new product that's got lots of good stuff for perfecting your skin's tone. It will keep all the good stuff in and keep the bad stuff out. It's a good price on a good product. I use the one with sunscreen during the day time.
