Disclaimer: I was provided Neutrogena products to test and compensated for my time, however, all opinions are my own.
We’ve all read those, “What every woman in their __(insert decade here)__ should do,” articles. There the ones that tell you you should be getting rid of toxic relationships, saving for retirement and drinking more water. Whether the article is for women in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and so on, one common recommendation appears over and over again – start a beauty regimen.
Research all agrees, the key to looking your best lies in taking care of your skin and the best way to do this is through a beauty routine. I confess it took me too long to start a beauty regimen. The multitude of face washes, toners, serums, creams, lotions and potions had my head spinning. Even if I could figure out what products to use, when was I going to have the time?
Thankfully, science has come a long way and many of today’s beauty products do double and even triple duty. These are a moms best friends. The problem with most beauty regimens is that they leave out one key and vital ingredient for anti-aging and skin cancer protection – SPF.
My two favorite products for SPF protection are Neutrogena’s new Healthy Skin Anti-Aging Perfector which I use every week day to create a base for my makeup and Hydro Boost Water Gel with sunscreen Board Spectrum SPF 15 which I use on weekends when I go makeup free.
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Aging Perfector is a tinted moisturizer so their is no need for foundation. It’s ingredients work over time to pack a punch in one product:
- Retinol for anti-aging
- Vitamin E to protect against environmental stress
- Natural Soy to improve tone, texture and radiance
- Wile Chamomile to help calm and sooth skin
- SPF 20 moisturizer to protect against future skin damage
Neutrogena’s beloved Hydro Boost has received it’s own boost with the addition of SPF. If you haven’t tried Hydro Boost yet, you need to. The water gel formula absorbs quickly leaving your skin moisturized without feeling sticky. Now with SPF 15, it’s perfect for wearing morning and night when you’re spending time in doors.
The best feature of these products is that they don’t smell or feel like sun screen!
Here’s my simple, three-step skincare regimen that you can follow as well:
- Wash with a powerful cleanser. I like Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Cleanser.
- Follow up with a spot treatment for any outbreaks that come up. My go-to is Neutrogena Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel.
- Smooth Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Anti-Aging Perfector or Hydro Boost Water Gel with sunscreen Board Spectrum SPF 15 over skin
In just three steps, you’re cleaning, moisturizing, rejuvenating, protecting and setting yourself up for a lifetime of great skin well into your __(insert decade here)__. 😉
