Over the years as my love of all things makeup has grown and grown and, admittedly, as my skin has started to change and age a bit, I’ve become really conscious of my nightly skincare routine. I never ever go to bed with my makeup on and always cleanse my skin at night. A couple of times a week, I take things a bit further and go through all the steps: cleanser, toner, mask, exfoliation, serums, an eye cream and moisturizers. It’s a whole process, but I add in a bath and some sleepy tea and consider it some much-needed me time, an at-home spa if you will. I take supplements and TRY to drink lots of water. (Keyword: try.)
Recently though, I realized that with all the things I’m doing right for my skin, I’m skipping one very important step: cleansing in the morning. Maybe it sounds gross, but since I was cleansing at nighttime, I just didn’t force myself to do it again in the morning (unless I was washing my hair in the shower). I would start with moisturizer and jump straight to makeup, but what’s the point of having nice makeup and all the latest tools if you’re going to apply it to dirty skin?
So lately I’ve been changing up my morning routine with Olay’s Cleansing Infusion Facial Cleanser with Deep Sea Kelp. It’s a mouthful to say (just look for the gold packaging when searching for this one), but it’s changed the look and feel of my skin. It’s a super rich and creamy lather, and the non-stripping formula actually hydrates for soft skin that glows. The soy-based cleanser (with added aloe extract) is gentle enough to use everyday, while still drawing out impurities and providing moisture you can actually feel. My makeup goes on better, and I feel like I have a lasting glow throughout the day. I’ve loved the feeling of this facial cleanser so much that I’m now throwing it into the nighttime routine as well. If you’re looking for a great everyday cleanser to treat your skin without breaking the bank, this one is definitely worth checking out.
