Happy President's Day! I'm so ecstatic to be off today since it is way too cold to commute to work (or partake in NYC).
I'm not a hermit or anything but I try to limit my time outdoors when the air is below 20 degrees. Does anyone else notice how harsh the chilly (and very dry) air sucks all the moisture out of their skin? Well, lucky for everyone I'm obsessed with the skincare (& makeup) aisle at Target came across a few hydrating tools to have on hand.
My obsession with skincare started at a young age. I would watch my mom and tías (aunts) prep their skin for the day ahead and regularly indulge with at home facials using all-natural ingredients. I may not have picked up on their DIY facials but when it comes to using products I do try and use products using all natural ingredients.
Like I've mentioned before, most of my things are in storage including all my winter skincare goods. Not good, especially since this mild winter has turned into a deadly beast of chilled air and jaw-dropping single digits temps. And if you haven't read about it before, know that I am the kind of girl that can't leave the house with SPF (and brow gel). So, letting my skin show signs of dryness was not an option. Besides, the earlier you take care of your skin the better your skin will look in the long run.
For reference, AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless was launched late last month. The line uses Active Naturals Blackberry Complex which is sourced from nature and has clinically proven results. What drew me to the Absolutely Ageless line was its promise to deeply nourish my skin (yes!) and strengthen skin's natural moisture barrier (double yes!). My mom and tías would definitely approve of this.
Here's how I'm including these two goodies into my nighttime wind-down sesh:
WIPE IT OFF
Take off the day's grime and caked on makeup for the ultimate cleanse.
Use AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless Nourishing Cleanser for a double cleanse. Don't worry, this won't overdry your skin and helps preserve the skin's natural moisture barrier.
Slather on AVEENO® Absolutely Ageless Restoring Night Cream on your face and neck. This is so nourishing, your skin is going to drink it up while you sleep. In the AM you'll love how soft and smooth your face feels
Don't forget to pay attention to your eyes - your skin is most delicate there so use your ring finger when applying the cream. If you're in the market for an affordable eye cream check out AVEENO Absolutely Ageless Eye Cream ($19.99).
And that's that! Are there any AVEENO products that you're absolutely loving right now? Tell me about it in the comments!
