Why hello! It’s been super quiet on the blog lately! I recently received a promotion at work and have been working a crazy amount of overtime! As a result, I haven’t been giving this little blog the TLC it deserves. It’s been hard to find a balance between work, blogging, and taking care of myself. All this stress mixed with the warm spring weather has taken quite a toll on my skin.
As a result, my skin has been easily irritated lately. The dry and warm weather has made it easily prone to redness too! Luckily, I discovered Paula’s Choice skincare and it’s been working wonders on my skin! I’ve been using their 6 product Redness Relief Kit and I want to tell you all about it today! I love the fact that this is an all-in-one kit and each product works well to compliment each other.
STEP 1: Cleanser
This gel formula cleanser gently cleans and soothes my skin. I love using it first thing in the morning to help my skin wake up. It’s also great to use at the end of the day to get rid of all the dirt, oil, and makeup that builds up on my skin! I love the fact that it’s gentle and doesn’t strip my skin dry.
STEP 2: Toner
After cleansing, I like to use the toner to replenish and soothe my extra sensitive skin. I simply take a cotton pad, pour a little bit on the pad and gently pat it over my skin. It works really well to remove any extra makeup that the cleanser may have missed. I also find that it really helps calm my skin and leaves it feeling nice and fresh!
STEP 3: Exfoliant
This might be a little TMI, but during spring and summer the dead skin cells that build up from winter start to peel off of my skin! It’s not pretty at all! To combat ugly peeling skin, I like to use the 1% BHA Lotion Exfoliant. I usually don’t like using exfoliants too often because of my sensitive skin. However, using this exfoliant just once a week has helped remove the dead skin cells!
STEP 4: Serum
I always get confused on what serum to use, since there are so many in the market. This serum is packed with antioxidants that help calm and hydrate the skin. I love the fact that it’s light and doesn’t leave a sticky residue.
STEP 5: Day Time Moisturizer
I’ve been on the hunt for a great moisturizer that contains SPF, since I’ll be spending more time in the sun! You can imagine my excitement when I first tried out this SPF 30 mineral moisturizer! I LOVE the fact that it doesn’t have that yucky sunscreen smell that most products with SPF contain. Another plus is that it’s light and non-greasy! What more could a girl ask for?
STEP 6: Night Time Moisturizer
I always like to make sure that my skin is properly moisturized before I sleep. I like applying this particular moisturizer to ensure that my skin will be nice and plump in the morning.
