my...my...MY Skin Care Regimen

Hello My Beauties!

Didn't expect me to have a blog so soon, did you?  Well, I'm determined to get back to doing what I love and I figured why not start today.  :-)

Now the first topic I want to get into with you all is my skin care regimen.  I'm mainly doing this because I have had numerous people come up to me and ask about my makeup...and then go on to ask is it the makeup making my skin look like that or is it really my skin.  LOL!  Well, for those of you who may be wondering, it's really MY skin.  I believe makeup should only enhance beauty and not cover it up.  With that being said, I don't have any secret lotion or potion that I use on my skin, but I do have a defined system that I go by that I truly believe in and that is...  

For those who aren't familiar with Clinique, it is a three step system that you use twice a day.  It can typically be purchased at department stores such as Belk and Macy's.  I have been a Clinique user for many years and I stay with the products because they work extremely well with my skin.  I have met many people who tell me that they only use water on their face or bar soap.  Different things work for different people.  In my years of learning about skincare, I have been told by an esthetician (facial specialist) that a three step system is ideal because a toner is what helps renew your skin and remove traces of dirt and oil.

Here is my three step system:



So, I simply wash my face, take a cosmetic pad and swipe toner and then moisturize and I'm done.  I also do the same thing after I remove my makeup.  Removing your makeup at night is another thing that will really keep your skin healthy.  Also, Clinique has different systems for different skin types.  I am a #4 because I have oily skin.  My mom, for instance, is a #2 because she has normal (not dry, not oily) skin.  They have systems that will work for any skin type.  It's just a matter of taking the time to go and talk with someone to find out what works best for you.

I hope that you all enjoyed this and if you have any questions or want more information, please let me know.

God bless you!
