Everyone wants flawless skin, and when I read about skincare regimens of 9, 10 or more steps, I cringe. A great skincare regimen can be streamlined to three easy cleansing steps: makeup removal, cleansing and exfoliating. You’re 3 steps away to gorgeous skin…and you can save money while you’re at it, at CVS!
Clean skin is really the most important step to flawless skin and the basis to a great makeup look. Cleansing skin is the process of removing makeup, grime, pollution, impurities and dead skin cells. A good cleanser renews and restores the skin. I like to make my skincare regimen a ritual, cleansing at the same time every day, morning and night.
My three cleansing steps to gorgeous skin include:
Step 1: Removing makeup. I use Simple Water Boost Micellar Water to remove all traces of makeup. I love this formula, as it’s infused with skin-loving minerals and plant extracts. The formula was developed for dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin, so it’s non irritating. Since my skin is constantly dehydrated, I like that I’m plumping up the skin cells. Simple Water Boost Micellar Water is easy to use: just apply to a cotton square and wipe over skin. No need to rinse off!
Step 2: Cleanse and Moisturize. I’m taking a “back to basics” approach and cleansing with POND’S Cold Cream Cleanser. Classic cleansing creams like POND’s and Noxzema Classic Clean Original Deep Cleansing Cream are the OG cleansing creams. These cleansing creams remove any remaining traces of hard-to-get-off waterproof makeup and moisturize the skin, leaving it soft and smooth. In fact, POND’S Cold Cream Cleanser formula is made up of 50% moisturizer! To use, apply to wet or dry skin, massage, and rinse off.
Step 3: Exfoliate. I’ve been using the St. Ives Green Tea Blackhead Clearing Scrub and really like it. The green tea formula helps to target blackheads, unclog pores and calm redness, for a more even skin tone. This blackhead clearing scrub gets it’s fine texture from an exfoliating mineral that is not damaging to the skin, doesn’t strip the skin and has a clean fresh scent. I use it two or three times a week to polish skin. This is a nice, budget-friendly find!
