The Simple Night-Time Skincare Routine you need to start in your 20s

I know what your thinking. I'm 20-something, I don't have to worry about skin care, my skins GREAT, I am YOUNG. Wrinkles, what wrinkles, I said I am YOUNG.

I bet sun damage is furthest from your mind too. Even though all those things seem far away, now is the time to start nurturing our complexion – because it’s not really. (Sorry to break it to you, pretty young thing).

Many people get overwhelmed by the thought of having to come up with a good skincare routine. Maybe you avoid the situation altogether and use a basic face wash and call it a day.

I'm here to show you how simple it can be. Best of all? It's simple enough to commit to every single night!


The Simple Night-Time Skincare Routine you need to start in your 20s


CLEAN YOUR FACE

You guessed right. Step one is to clean your face. Simple right? Simple yet I bet you've even skipped this step at night. Why wouldn't you? You are a hard-working young lady who is tired from work,  (or happy hour), and you just want to get into your warm, cozy bed and just stay there. Trust me I get it.

But before you hide under your covers think about all that’s built up on your face from the day – pollution, sweat, dirt (and who knows what else)! Use this simple face wash that will cleanse, exfoliate, and refresh your skin all at once. It's that simple.

PUT ON A MASK

Mary Kay Facial Masks

A mask for all occasions.  

Whether you need some renewing, moisturizing, or cleansing, we’ve got the right one for you! 

Once you start doing this, you'll never want to stop! There isn't anything more relaxing than putting on a face mask and getting cozy on the couch with a blanket and a glass of wine. It is seriously something I look forward to at least twice a week!

I love using face masks because you can see and feel the difference in such short period. It’s good to have 2-3 different mask on hand each night. You need to think about what your skin is going through each night you select a mask. (Full guide coming soon)

 Face washed.. Woot Woot!

HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE

On the nights you don't mask (the sad nights) skip right to this step. Your skin needs moisture. It craves moisture. If you have never used a night cream, try this one. It contains a powerful antioxidant to help guard against free radical damage and hydrates skin for up to 10 hours. It's light enough for a day and nighttime use. Just be sure to select the formula that is right for you, dry/normal, or combination/oily. Not sure feel free to email me at marie.leon@marykay.com, and I can help you figure it out!

DON’T FORGET THE EYE CREAM

 Masks make for a great date night!

Masks make for a great date night!

I know eye creams are supposed to be for your grandma, but really eye creams are supposed to be a preventative measure. Your eyes can be the most prominent giveaway that your aging. Protect your skin and prevent the most delicate skin on your face. The skin around your eye will thank you for the care and attention.

Try this, Timewise Firming Eye Cream:  this luxuriously rich eye cream is advanced in its ability to improve firmness, brightens and provides intense moisturization, plus minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

A little of this will go a very long way.

Establishing a new skin care routine takes commitment. Heck establishing any kind of new routine takes commitment. Stick with it, if you miss a night don't beat yourself up just remember to keep to the routine the following night. Allow yourself to be educated about what you are putting on your face and you will be all set in creating your own quick and easy routine!
